Great place to stay in Rabat
So glad we had a ½ day in Rabat before coming back for our stay. The riad is hard to find, and far from the street where taxi let us out. The receptionist gave us her card & told us to call when we arrived on taxi. The driver made the call for us, then someone came to help us carry luggage through narrow, winding roads to the riad. It would have been a challenge without help. Staying there is not for the mobility impaired- lots of stairs! Fine for us, but could be difficult for some. The place is beautiful, the welcome warm and hospitable.

OK Hotel experience
Our stay at Dar El Kébira was OK. The bellman was very nice and very helpful. The hotel is a bit into the Medina so you cannot drive to it, and we ended up having to pay off a police man and a young man to let us through and help us carry our bags to the hotel. The room itself was slightly dirty, and had an odd smell. However it was also spacious and suited our needs for the one night. Breakfast on the roof was fantastic. They did however give us a VERY hard time for asking to pay with Credit Card at check out, even though it was never mentioned until checkout that cash was needed. They also had a card machine so I don't understand why using card was a problem. The check out experience left a lot to be desired because of this.

Old Riad, needs upgrading
The worst hotel and the most expensive on our three week trip to Morocco. We booked through and at check in, were given a room that was like a closet. No windows or any natural light coming in at all. The double bed was up a very unsafe small steps with a small closet sized bathroom downstairs. When we complained that the room was not acceptable, we were shown a better room off the main waiting area which was acceptable. Then when we got our bags from the dungeon, we were told that this room was not available. We were then shown a room in the back with a full size short bed, old velvet bedspread and makeshift bathroom. At this point, it was late in the evening and we did not have a choice to walk around the medina to find another hotel. Very uncomfortable night. At breakfast, we were 10 mins late and were told off by the staff serving up on the terrace. Yet there were people there having breakfast. We were served coffee and bread with jams. All done in a surly manner. This was the first time in Morocco to get a room that was very unpleasant and very surly service. Never again. The place is old and needs upgrading. The sofas in the waiting area have stains on them and the curtains are coming off the hooks.

Wonderful riad, highly recommend
Can't say enough about this riad. It was a lovely place, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Like most riads, it was cozy but not so much for it to feel cramped. The staff was amazing and extremely helpful, providing us with the best recommendations for food and sites we shouldn't miss. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The location is perfect. You will love it.

Lovely decorated hotel in the heart of Medina
The hotel is very beautifully decorated and the staff very welcoming and helpful. The restaurant is also very good, although expensive, and you can have the same meals at half price elsewhere. The rooms are pretty basic and there’s a bit of stuffy smell with the bed, due to old furnitures. Breakfast is also good, although if you arrive later than other guests you get served cold crepes, instead of recently cooked ones, which are a hard bite. Overall a pleasant stay for a few nights stay.
