“Great location but a mixed review”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We stayed here one night at the end of March. It is a beautifully restored traditional building. It is ideally located for all the sites and only about a 15-20 minute walk from the station, which was how we arrived.
Our room was attractive and comfortable the only downsides was that the bathroom is not completely separate from bedroom, separated by partition but with no ceiling.
Breakfast was very good.
They had stated that they took credit cards but didn’t so we had to go out and get cash from a nearby ATM. On return we immediately paid the receptionist who didn’t give a receipt and then forgot we had paid when we left later and asked us to pay again!

Sir,
Thank you for your comment, we attach great importance to the feedback from our customers.
Regarding the bathrooms, there is a cap on the showers, but we have not considered useful to set aside sink seen the high ceilings of the room.
On the payment card, we had a connection problem, and responsible to you cashed, did not pass the instruction to the person at night
We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope to see you soon.

Lovely old restored Riad. The courtyard is peaceful and beautiful. The rooms are just off the courtyard so that with the enormous doors fully open (we're talking camel sized double doors here) the room becomes a part of the open air courtyard. The staff was wonderful and the included breakfast quite nice. Location is a bit tricky as it is off a pedestrian- only street in the old medina. The taxi drops you off about 50 meters or so from the Riad, outside one of the gates to the medina.

We spent 1 night here in the Mimosa room in January 2012. Locationwise, it is pretty central and close in walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The Dar is down a small street but the street is pretty well lit. There is also a keypad for entry so you don't have to worry about coming back after dinner and being let in. There are motion sensor lights throughout the Dar which keep it well lit.

All the suites are downstairs and the smaller rooms are on the 2nd floor. Mimosa was one of the smaller rooms. It was fine for a 1 night stay but anything longer, you should consider a larger suite.

We had breakfast in the courtyard as it was too cold to eat on the terrace. The disadvantage is that you cannot talk very loud as you may disturb the people staying in the suites.

Positives: strong wireless internet, eggs on demand for breakfast, freshly squeezed orange juice.

Negatives: There isn't a hair dryer in the room, you have to ask for it. The bed is on the hard side. I did find a small bug on the bed and noticed a gap under the door. The bathroom seemed to always be humid. No one helps you with your luggage. There isn't much storage space in the room or areas for you to lay your things out.

Overall, we had a nice stay.

Location (north side of the Medina) is great. It is quite but yet it is a short walk from main streets of Medina and short walk to Kasaba and other attractions. Also, very safe and clean area.

Service is also good, especially Nouran, who gave me a Xerox copy of Medina map, and showed me all places of interest, best way to get to them, and how far they are, and she was very friendly, polite, and nice. Checked me in quickly, offered me mint tea, gave me code to entry door, and WiFi.

The Riad look good, especially the yard, but compare to other Riads in Morocco, not as Charming.

Breakfast was good and freshly made, including freshly squeezed OJ.

Here are the stuff I didn't like,

1) No Hair dryer, and in room safe box.
2) Very Weak WiFi signal in the room
3)No help with luggage, in check-in or check-out time
4) I didn't know there is a 3% credit card fee, unless you pay cash
5) traveling in low season, during breakfast, the yard was very quite and some soft music would be nice.

On the whole, the issues were all minor and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: don't take the down stair rooms, as you may have less privacy, and it could get noisy in the mor...

Fabulous ryad in the medina of Rabat, close to the kasbah. Charming interior, well-equiped luxuruous room, a warm welcome and great service ! Nice terrace. Delicious breakfast. What more could one wish for ? A bit expensive compared to ryads in other cities, but that seems to be the case for all ryads in Rabat...

Lovely Riad close to the old fort and medina. The rooms are beautifully appointed and probably have the best bathrooms of any of the Riads we visited on our Moroccan trip. Nora was helpful in terms of showing us the local attractions on the map provided.
The only mission was finding a reasonably priced restaurant for dinner.

After having a fairly relentlessly hassled time in Marrakech and Essaouira, we arrived at Rabat station to find nobody touting to take us to our riad. Quite refreshing to not have to fight our way through the bidding throng, but ultimately difficult to convince any taxis to take us into the medina, so we hoofed it ourself. The walk to Dar Zouhour took us through the new town and into the old through bustling streets full of Rabatis who were going about their own thing and not trailing us telling us the way ahead was closed. Brilliant! 1st impression of Rabat was one of a real functioning city, not reliant on the tourist dollar and as a result a great place to visit.
Dar Zouhour is towards the north edge of the very clean medina and near the Kasbah. The staff were splendid and welcomed us with a calming cup of tea. The whole place was spotless and beautifully decorated. The rooms (we stayed in two) were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast in the central garden courtyard was excellent. Lots of good pointers to eateries etc given by the ladies working there, and a really relaxing overall experience. Not the cheapest place we've stayed in, but definitely worth it. Would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: We poked head in rooms on ground floor, which looked grand with big doorways, but open right onto co...
