Dar El Kebira is hidden in the corner of the medina, but with easy access to a main street for taxis and walking. It's just over the hill from the beach and across the street from the gorgeous Kasbah les Oudaias. In the other direction, it's easy to get lost winding through the narrow streets of the medina, but great... More

This Riad is tucked away in the Medina in Rabat. Once you find your way around you realise that it's not too far off the beaten track. We stayed in a large suite which had beautiful original furnishings. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace and provided a delicious selection of fresh fruit, crepes, cheese, olives and bread rolls.Unlimited coffee... More

伝統的な邸宅ホテルで、ウダイヤのカスバやメディナの散策に最適の立地です。もちろん雰囲気やサービスも素晴らしい。食事も美味しかったです。5つ星ながら変な気取りもなく、とても居心地よく過ごせました。おすすめです。 The stay in Dar el Kebira was very pleasant and valuable experience for us. We were able to spend happy and comfort time in the Moroccan traditional beautiful residence with your warm hospitality. Thank you so much to Ms Amina and all of the staff ! K.I.

This is a nice Riad, the Hostess was a little rough but I think this is just her personality, whilst the young man who assists her was so gentle and kind and happy to assist in any way possible.

the staff was helpful from the moment we arrived. They even helped us call or rental car company to sort out an issue. It was an easy walk around the souk, to the Casbah and down to the ocean. The room was fantastic and the dinner we ordered one night was some of the best food we had in morocco.... More

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite small but there are options to up grade to the larger room types. All the rooms are unique and eclectic and are authentic Moroccan in décor and style.

Yes, of course, Rabat has the chain hotels which will make you feel like you have not left home, but who wants that, really? The Riad DeK is intimate, old and charming.

Dar el Kebira is in a great location -- just inside the medina across from the Oudayas...close enough to walk to souiqa and downtown if you want, and close to all the river/beach sites as well -- excellent breakfast, too!
