Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing your experience with us.
We took into consideration all your comments. Our guest satisfaction is essential for us! We're truly sorry that we did not enjoy your experience within a Riad.
Kindly note that by definition a Riad is an ancestral/typical traditional Moroccan house, located within the Medina (old town). Riads are completely different from modern hotels (you were expecting).
Our satellite TVs are working just fine, we believe you just did not know how to use the remote control (indeed it's a bit tricky). If you had told us we'd have fixed it.
Hoping to have the pleasure to welcoming you againin the future and renew your experience in best conditions this time.
Warmest regards

The location was excellent for our short stay in Rabat. The service is wonderful as well. However, I was a bit disappointed in how tired everything appeared. The bathroom in our suite was in dire need of a paint job. Sheets and bedding really need to be updated, as well. It just had the feel of neglect, which is a pity because the building is so beautiful. I don’t regret staying here because of the warmth of the staff, however, I was happy it was only a one night stay.

Nicely restored riad with a convenient location near the shore. Common areas are spectacular. Had a comfortable bed in a spacious room. WiFi good, satellite tv needed attention. A few details in the room and bathroom were rough, such as light fixtures that had burned-out bulbs, a bathroom sink without a stopper, and a wobbly holder for the showerhead. Breakfast was fine, but service was slow and not attentive. Staff were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. While very good, we had been spoiled by a flawless stay at another riad, so we may have been pickier than otherwise. Also, should you stay in a room with windows opening onto the street, make sure to ask how to close the exterior shutters to cut out the street lighting.

We stayed at both of the branches of this Riad. One is the older more established, the other is newer and less established. They are 3 min from each other. The service is impeccable. They came to the parking area and picked us up. They took our luggage up to our room. The rooms are spacious in both. The newer Riad has an elevator which helps because Riads all have steep stairs. All the rooms have TVs but limited English channels. It doesn’t really matter because there is so much to see and enjoy and savor that tv was not our priority. The bathroom in the newer Riad bathroom was tiny but there was a walk in shower. The older Riad had a bigger bathroom but the tub was a fall hazard. It was so narrow that I felt I was going to fall over while showering. There were robes and toiletries in both Riads. The first night we had dinner at a nearby restaurant because the newer Riad does not have a really well established kitchen. The second we stayed at the older Riad. We ordered dinner and Hamid(I hope I am not getting his name wrong) was warm, hospitable and so accommodating. He brought us our wine with olives and nuts to our room and then brought us our appetizers as well. He said the appetizers were on the house. Such a generous gesture indeed. Then when dinner was ready we went to the dining area to eat a wonderful dinner. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

PS: there is a large bottle of water in each room.

Stayed here one night during a road trip up the coast of Morocco. The dar is located down a quiet street in the Medina that is a quick 5 minute walk from the Kasbah and sea. The dar is a bit rundown, which isn’t a problem, but the photographs that are shown here on TripAdvisor are a little deceiving. We came here with my in-laws, and their room was a bit nicer with a nice standing shower. Our bedroom was located upstairs and had a comfortable mattress, but the shower/tub was cramped and difficult to bathe in without feeling like you were going to fall over. Breakfast here was the best we’ve had while in Morocco due to the variety of food and how fresh it all was; we were given yogurt, fruit bowl, fresh lemon water, typical Moroccan pastries, cheese, honey, and coffee/tea. There isn’t much to do in Rabat, so staying here for one night/two days is more than enough time, and if you’d like to be located in the Medina, this location is the place is an easy one to get to. We rented a car and parked for 20 MAD across the street by the corniche overnight, safe and easy.
