We stayed for three nights. I agree 100% with the review by Lukk-76. As mentioned at first glance everything looked ok, but after using the bathroom, water covered the entire floor. Shower and toilet are only two feet aprt. There is no ventilation in the bathroom, all towels were damp. The heater was not working. The bathroom door and ceiling... More

this was the best place we stayed during our stay in Morocco. The owners are so kind, warm and helpful and the Riad is absolutely stunning. Make sure you have dinner at some point at the Riad, the food is excellent!! The best part of our trip :) Also, in the evenings sometimes the owners (married couple) put on their... More

At first sight a very nice place. The a la menthe is served and forms are filled out without three words from the lady who opened the door for us. Upwards and onwards to our room, which looked very nice at first glance, but on closer inspection turned out to be not very thoroughly cleaned. The previous guests had left... More

The management of this Riad is professional from the very beginning. After the booking via expedia, the owner, or maybe the manager of the Riad sent us an email of confirmation, which in our opinion is very professional as for a B&B. This price of this Riad is not cheap, but you can see the money is spent well because... More

This informally-decorated riad is colorful and comfortable and overall we were pleased with our stay and the friendly staff. This riad is the cheaper off-shoot of a larger and more traditionally decorated riad hotel, and you can tell that it is not in the same category quality-wise, but it worked great as a two-day base for exploring Rabat. It was... More

Our stay there was amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and helped us out a lot. The breakfast was also really good. It was hard to find though. The locals where so welcoming. We had a couple of kids walk us to the hotel to find it. Great experience

We stayed at Art Riad for 2 nights at the beginning and end of our holiday in Morocco in two different rooms -Gris & Turquin, both of which are very nice (although there are some steep steps in Turquin which could be challenging for some). Breakfast was very good, the riad has a roof terrace but the real highlight is... More

We travelled from the train station by petit taxi but our driver had to get out and ask people several times because he didn't know where the riad was. Eventually we were dropped at the edge of the medina (riad is not accessible by car) and told to just go down that street. It was a little bit more difficult... More

Quiet, clean, cool, just what you're looking for after walking all day. A beautifully renovated courtyard hotel in old Rabat medina, walk to everything.Great French style breakfast and friendly desk help. A little hard to find, but well worth the effort!
