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.

Great place in heart of medina
The manager kicked up a fuss about having multiple people in a room so service left something to be desired. All in all, however, the place was clean and surprisingly modern for something located in the old medina. It had a great Moroccan feel.

Old-world hotel in the heart of the medina
This hotel, a historic riad in the heart of the medina and close to the Casbah, is full of character and warmth. Completely different from the generic Western hotels, this boutique hotel offers stunning décor, tasty rooftop breakfasts, and kind service. The medina is alive until 9pm and felt safe, even though the hotel entrances is on a quiet back alley. The only challenge we had was finding it, as we decided to walk from the train station (30 minutes), which meant weaving through the dark alleys and eventually asking for help. Had we started on the Casbah (water) side of the medina we would have found it well signposted.
