Very nice and quiet boutique hotel with traditinal room and food. Very friendly team and great place for a relaxed vacation. Enjoy Bfast on the top patio and the Moroccan Hammam.

We stayed in this riad for 2 nights. Our room was beautiful - very spacious and we felt like we were Moroccan royalty! The room was expensive but as it is in the capital city not really surprising. The staff were friendly but not as personable or attentive as the staff on other riads we stayed in during our tour of Morocco. The main issue we had was the price and quality of the food. We had dinner the first night we arrived and the portions were tiny and we left still feeling hungry. They also didn't have the dessert we wanted and instead gave us the yoghurt used for breakfast with no reduction in the price, so felt the 280 dirhams per person completely unjustified. The breakfasts are ok, no variety - it was basically just bread and lukewarm coffee.

The riad itself is ok, the room amazing but the food and impersonable staff left us feeling shortchanged.

Spent a week here in the middle of March while working in Rabat. Stayed in the Pinede suite which was terrific. My co-worker stayed in the Souissi suite, The breakfast on the roof top patio was wonderful. The service was very accomodating but not over the top which was the way I like it. It was so quiet in the Riad that if there was a noise it was surprising. The Souissi suite has windows which face the street and apparently you can hear the call to prayers at 5:30 am but I heard nothing in the Pinede suite. The only minor complaint I have was that the claw foot tub was a little difficult to get into and out of if you don;t have long legs and a stool might make things a little easier. As an FYI, if you do stay here they can srrange to have a taxi meet you at Rabat airport, drive you to the edge of the medina and then walk you and your luggage in to the Riad. I beleive the cost was 250 dirham

Room Tip: The Pinede Suite is quiter than the Souissi suite but I beleive the Souissi suite might be a little...

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.

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!
