After having a fairly relentlessly hassled time in Marrakech and Essaouira, we arrived at Rabat station to find nobody touting to take us to our riad. Quite refreshing to not have to fight our way through the bidding throng, but ultimately difficult to convince any taxis to take us into the medina, so we hoofed it ourself. The walk to Dar Zouhour took us through the new town and into the old through bustling streets full of Rabatis who were going about their own thing and not trailing us telling us the way ahead was closed. Brilliant! 1st impression of Rabat was one of a real functioning city, not reliant on the tourist dollar and as a result a great place to visit.
Dar Zouhour is towards the north edge of the very clean medina and near the Kasbah. The staff were splendid and welcomed us with a calming cup of tea. The whole place was spotless and beautifully decorated. The rooms (we stayed in two) were spacious and comfortable. Breakfast in the central garden courtyard was excellent. Lots of good pointers to eateries etc given by the ladies working there, and a really relaxing overall experience. Not the cheapest place we've stayed in, but definitely worth it. Would stay again for sure.
