Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 22, 2011

I have just come back from staying at Riad Marhaba....it is a fantastic location in the Medina and one of the best values. I have been travelling to Rabat every month and this was my first time staying here and will now be the place I stay on each of my visits. Cecile & Fred are the owners and are so friendly and helpful. I could not say more about this Riad.

We stayed in this amazing and 1001-nights riad with our children. My daughter felt like a princess staying in suite Bahia. The riad is perfectly clean. Shower, airco en internet worked very well and the breakfast was the best we'd had in Morocco! We would really love to stay here again!!!
Special thanks to Sila. He made us feel very welcome , nothing was to much for him.

We had a very comfortable stay at Riad Marhaba. We were in the Suite Chellah which had a quiet, cozy bedroom and spacious private lounge area with excellent WiFi reception. Breakfast on the terrace was excellent. The owners and staff were very friendly and gave us a personal map with restaurant recommendations. The room decor could use a bit of updating/refinement as its a bit chintzy compared to the beautiful architecture of the riad itself. As other guests have noted, there's an issue with the water in the bathroom—you may have to take a cold shower but we encountered that at other guesthouses in Morocco. Overall, good value for the space and would stay there again.

While we did struggle to find Riad Marhaba (having not sought/received accurate directions prior to arrival - the Medina is a maze!), once we did we were glad of our decision to stay here during our time in Rabat. The owners and staff are very friendly, and the rooms have been tastefully restored. it is reasonably priced compared to other riads we had stayed in elsewhere - perhaps because the property is more elegant than it is luxurious (which is not a criticism).

There is a very French feel about the place - as there is with much of Rabat, to be honest - an interesting counterpoint to other Moroccan cities. The map and restaurant reviews provided by the hotel were accurate and very useful indeed. We'd stay here again!

We stayed for 4 nights at this Riad in April 2011 and enjoyed every bit of it. We had the Chellah suite, which is very comfortable. The bed was very good and everything was perfectly clean. The location of the riad inside the medina is really nice, the French owners are very hospitable and welcoming, they gave us a map of the area and advised us on what to see, where to eat, and even arranged a massage for us.
The riad is beautiful, with typical Moroccan architecture and a lovely terrace. The breakfast was excellent! The only little problem we had was the shower, which was either very hot or very cold, but difficult to get at a normal temperature. This little problem aside, our whole stay was perfect, and we enjoyed every bit of it.

The riad is really really nice.
It has been recently renewed with good taste and attention to details!

The owners unfortunately dont speak perfect english, but no problem mixing with our limited french!!
The riad is in excellent position, 15/20 minutes from the train station walking, in the center of the medina and close to main attractions!

Unfortunately it was raining a lot during our 2 days of stay, so we couldnt fully enjoy the terrace, but we've been served the tasty and abundant breakfast inside...

We would recommend a stay here, price are really fair compared to other solutions in rabat, and the place is really beautiful!

Staff and owner speak limited English, so if you speak French it is easier to communicate. Our limited French was sufficient. Beds are comfy and breakfast is tasty, good location (15 min walk from train station), overall a pleasant stay.
