The riad is located along a natrow alley and you have to do a little walk to reach the place.. From the outside, it looks like just a simple door and probably a typical lodging.. But once you are come inside, you will discover a very beautiful riad and a very nice combinations of colours and patterns.. Jan is so... More

We spent a week in Salé in August and stayed 6 nights at The Repose and had a wonderful time. Jan and Rachid have transformed this house into a place of charm and comfort, and run their riad-hotel with professional efficiency and personal warmth. Always available to help and advise, never intrusive or effusive. A perfect balance for us, allowing... More

Food is great, typical Moroccan breakfast and we tried also dinner, it was delicious! Sale' is a quite village to see with a small but pretty medina... More

I initially booked for 2 nights. However after experiencing personal warm hospitality by the owners and staff, I extended my stay for the whole duration of my visit in Morocco. Jan and her staff went an extra mile to make my stay as comfortable as possible. Jan also being a Londoner was a great bonus. The location was also very... More

This was the first time we stayed at a riad, and it was wonderful. Walking through the street inside the medina, I wondered what we were going to experience. However, as soon as Janet opened the door and we saw the lovely riad, I no longer had reservations. The stay was fantastic! The rooms were beautiful, and the dinner on... More

Loved this place and the hostess. Felt really well provided for in beautiful rooms and some of the best meals we had in all of Morocco. We traveled all over Morocco and this was our favorite place to stay.

The Repose is incredible! This is the best value I've ever experienced for the quality of the lodging, the services provided, and the attention from the owners. This is a true luxurious gem not to be missed! The riyadh only has four suites, so you receive a lot of personal attention. I arrived after a few days of work in... More

The Repose is a nice little B&B that is smartly furnished and clean. It consists of a riad and several rooms that offer a quiet place to relax and unwind from touring the cities. They have a lot of touristy books and literature offering information about the cities in several languages. We even had dinner with the owners one night... More

The riad is lovely and owner and staff couldn't have been nicer. However it is difficult to find, and one should be aware that Sale is on the other side of the estuary to the main town of Rabat. However, as i moved on to Marrakesh from there I was able to appreciate the virtue of a less frenetic and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Repose, is an oasis of calm in the heart of Sale's traditional medina, Rabat. Lovingly restored by the owners, Rachid and Jan, this luxury riad has been renovated and decorated using traditional materials and craftsmanship to give a haven of peace and tranquility. The whole riad oozes Moroccan charm and each of the 4 suites has its own unique identity. The salon is ideal for dining in the cooler months, reading a book or playing games. The courtyard is great for sipping tea, listening to the splashes of the fountain, while the terrace is fabulous for breakfast, sunbathing or siestas in the shade. With Rachid and Jan on-site, the hospitality and customer service are second-to-none and the combination of their local knowledge and awareness of international expectations ensures a warm and comfortable stay. ... more   less
