We decided to stay at this riad after reviewing the available options in Rabat and Sale. The riad is located in Sale (which is the sister-city of Rabat and divided by a small river). Most of the action and places of interest is in Rabat, so the biggest disadvantage of The Repose is that you have to travel in order to see the sights of Rabat. The tram is the best mode of transport to Rabat, and the walk to the station + tram ride means 20-40min in order to get into Rabat. The service was excellent and we were given a free upgrade for one night when we arrived. The owner (British expat) was friendly and made us feel at home from the very moment we entered through the door. The riad is clean and peaceful. The breakfast served at the roof terrace was amazing and among the best we had during our four week journey in Morocco. All in all, it is a great riad with excellent service, BUT (there is a but) it is not centerally located and I must honestly say that I did not feel 100% safe when returning to the riad late at night. Nothing happened, but even our Moroccan friends were reluctant to let us walk alone from the parking lot and 200m back to the riad.
- 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
