“Riad Zyo - friendly and welcoming staff at astunning riad,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Only open 5 months, so a bit of a secret gem!
Initially planned to stay in Rabat for only 2 days but the riad staff and owner were so welcoming and friendly, decided to extend stay. We would have stayed longer if time had allowed.
The rooms are very clean and in excellent state of decoration - and big! I've stayed in riads before where the rooms are quite small. Riad Zyo rooms and en suite are a very decent size.
Ali deserves special mention for his positive attitude towards hospitality.
If you are staying in Rabat, I urge you to give Zyo a go.

PS - if you follow the map and short instructions the riad provide with reservation confirmation, you will have no trouble finding the riad at all!

Room Tip: Understand there are 7 rooms in total. The rooms I saw were all lovely. We stayed in "favouri...

This Riad is conveniently located inside the Medina, the place is extremely clean and well decorated. The staff is great and the owner is very kind. He recommended a Moroccan restaurant for us and even walked us to the place.
Only recommendation as others pointed out already is the lack of signs to find the place. If you come at night you are likely to spend a long time looking for it.
Thanks! Martin

Room Tip: Again another Riad close to a Mosque so be ready for those ealy call to prayer calls...

This Riad is really clean, stylish and personnels is very kind. The only think we can advise to them is to put a label on the main street to let the arrival easier...:-) ..We walked around the place half an hour at least asking and asking...It was a fortune we found the place. There isn't the number 5 on the door, too..:-(.
The breakfast was healthy and fresh. The service perfect. One of the boys at the reception walked with us to the parking place to be sure that we don't have any trouble for our expired car ticket (they made us a fine only for 15 minutes of delay), but paying the day fare everything was ok.
We advice this place for sure!

Room Tip: All the rooms seem nice. Ours was ok

What a find! This should be called "Luxury Boutique Riad" and not a Bed and Breakfast. It is way past that! First the decor is very well thought out: not overwhelming with morocco, but just enough to have a taste of it. I can't get over the beauty of the copper wire curtains we had! The rooms are all comfortably big, with great closets and space to put your luggage away. It had a fantastic bathroom with great amenities and good hot water, comfortable bed and soft cotton linens.
Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, one of the best we had during our trip. They also have a beautiful terrace (with a lawn!) to chill out after a long day.
Best part was that the owner was there to attend all your needs. He would recommend places to visit and shop. You can tell he is a well travelled man because of all the details he put in this lovely, modern riad.
Another plus is the location: close to a parking lot (if you came driving like we did), close to the old medina and shops and very, very close to the Kasbah of Ouidas.
I would definitely recommend this riad. It is a gem!

Room Tip: We had the bottom floor, copper room. Very comfortable and quiet!

I think the best riad in Rabat if you are looking for a luxuy place. Ali, the guest is always very caring about all your needs and his very helpful for Any information about the city. The rooms are such a dream , mixture of european design with typical marocan style. Perfect if you want to treat yourself and enjoy all the things that Rabat can offer because the riad is very well located. Breakfast is delicious with an excellent variety of marocan pastries and lots more. Don't hesitate to ask him to prepare a dinner for you it will be lovely! And least but not last, is best quality for a very reasonable price. We are looking forward to come back.

What a nice discover y ... This Riad, despite Rabat is not really a touristic place, deserves the trip for itself. And spend a couple of days to relax and discover the medina of Rabat.
The Riad is brand new, extremely confortable ... and decorated with charm and a lot of taste. Everywhere you feel this taste and the little attention that makes the difference. From the terrace a wonderful view over the city.
The owner is a passionate ... and was able, which is rare, to gather around him people with the same attention the details and friendly / professional behaviour.
Take dinner or lunch there: Ali is doing fanstastic cuisine. And loves to discuss about it.
Just a great experience. A place that you would like to keep just for you ...
When travelling around the wordl it is difficult to be "estonished, surprised or see its expectations exceeded". However here, it is clearly the case.

Room Tip: Each room is unique ...

I just spent two nights at this charming Riad. Ali the owner and Ali the manager are most welcoming and extremely helpful. I was a pleasure to share stories and learn about the rich Moroccan culture from them.fro I felt completely at home is this amazingly tasteful envireronment. It is a brand new building, so conveniently located in the Medina. I was in the Fez room. Discreet clasic style, impeccably appointed and the fresh flowers continued to bloom during my stay. I enjoyed the fresh fruit offered in my room on my arrival. And the breakfast is a delicious array of traditional Moroccan crepes and pancakes as well as fresh croissant and perfectlyt brewed coffee. Having acces to wi-fi was a special bonus on the rainy morning of my first day. Ali is a wonderful host. I recommend this lovely Riad to any travellers wanting a special treat. and it is great place for those of us travelling solo!
