We stayed at The Repose October 4 & 5, 2013 before leaving Morocco from the Rabat-Sale airport. I chose it because it was close to the airport. Little did I know that this was the best place to stay in Rabat/Sale and perhaps the best in Morocco. Jan, the owner, welcomed us like old friends. She and the 2 women working for her made us feel right at home. We ate dinner there on the first night and it was so good that we decided to eat there the next night. Jan has one set menu each night. When she showed us the menu for night 2 we declined because it was a tangine. We had had too many tangines while in Morocco and wanted something else. When we told her our reason for declining she changed the menu for the night. It, too, was wonderful.
We ended up staying in 2 different rooms (the Arabian room and the Chefchaouen Room) because we extended our time there at the last minute. The rooms are very different and it was fun seeing each of them.
Jan arranged for a taxi to meet us at the rail station when we arrived and to take us to the airport at departure. We had an early flight out and she packed us a breakfast to take with us.
The Repose is a wonderful place to stay. We've traveled to many places in the world and this is one of the best.
