Beautiful restored Dar with traditional rooms (don't expect large rooms - just enough room to squeeze either side of the bed) and very clean. As we arrived tired and late we ate there - very expensive for what we got. In fact the most expensive for food of all the places we stayed in during 8 days in Morocco.But couldn't fault the staff or the place. Would stay there again and highly recommend it.

Welcomed with mint tea .. lovely place .. gorgeous bathroom .. nice location in the medina with a great leather shop nearby which should definitely be checked out!!
Couldn't connect on the internet though.
We were only there for one night.

Hidden in the center of the Medina of Rabat we found a jewel: Fantastic warm atmosphere, typical morrocan style designed with love for the detail, very friendly and supportive service team. Breakfast is served on the roof top of the hotel with a nice view over the roofs of the old medina of Rabat. Dinner is served in the small restaurant on the first floor, the open fire place and the typical morrocan style decoration creates a warm atmosphere, good food and wines. Overall a really excellent and unforgettable experience! Many thanks!

This is a wonderful place to stay -- in the medina but not so deep in that you can't dash out for a taxi, and a short walk from the water and the Oudaya Casbah. I recently spent four nights there on my own and found the staff welcoming and super helpful but not suffocating. Breakfast was fresh, delicious and way more than I could eat. Beyond all the ornate touches you expect in a high-end riad, the room featured comforts like an immense tub, luxurious towels and robe. They've really got their act together here; aside from being breathtakingly beautiful the place just functions really well; I will go back, definitely.

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

arriving at Dar El Kebira we immediately felt overwelmed by the beauty and the warmth of the place. A great window through moroccan culture for my visiting friends from texas. I, myself, though from morocco, felt amazed by the authenticity of the ryad. the service was personalized and thorough.The suites were spacious and very intimate. actually, the whole place was very intimate. We enjoyed the food very much, as a connoisseur of moroccan cuisine i can tell you that the tagines and the moroccan cuisine in general, are perfectly represented. I highly recommend the place to anyone looking to enjoy a beautiful moroccan experience....
