We stumbled upon Dar El Kebira - without any booking. Even if it was late in the evening, we were warmly welcomed. We decided to cancel our booking at a nearby riad and enjoy our time at Dar El Kebira. The riad and the rooms are lovely decorated and clean. You will surely enjoy the included traditional Moroccan breakfast, served...

I stayed here for 4 nights attending the football from the 12th-15th December. The riad itself is comfortable and located within the medina so exploring and access to the markets is very good. With this style of accommodation do not expect generous space in your rooms. This is what you may call boutique or traditional accommodation, where fittings and facilities...

With the soccer clubs championship taking place in December in Morocco, all hotels were overbooked by "Real de Madrid" or "Cruz Azul" staff ... finally, this was a very good thing. Between two business meetings, I spent three nights in that Riad, in the middle of the Medina. In normal time, I would have never known what is a genuine...

We only stayed for one night and thought the riad is in a good location but we didn't wander Rabat much. The owner lady wasn't that friendly... But she tried by making dinner reservations for us. The rooms were nice but the website made the riad nicer than it was in my opinion.

Two of us stayed here in October. The Riad is well placed for the sights of Rabat as it's situated just inside the medina.. Bedroom was very comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast on the roof top terrace was good. We had dinner one night and were very satisfied, the following night the manager recommended another local restaurant so it's worth...

The location was good, just barely inside the medina. The rooftop terrace was private with some nice views. The public areas were beautiful and really well maintained. We had one of our best dinners at this riad. The bathroom was a bit small but the room was comfortable and charming.

This was a pleasant Riad and in a convenient place in Rabat which we enjoyed. It was very quiet but the room was a little on the small side. The driver picked us up from the airport and that was the most convenient way to get to the Riad as the Medina can be confusing when you first arrive.
