“Great Riad”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Spent 4 nights here. Was welcomed by nice staff. Room was clean. Bed comfy with good quality sheets. Bathroom bit small but water runs hot. Great freshly made breakfast . No or VERY POOR WIFI in room and tv chanels were crap. But so close to everything. Would definitely recommend this place.

Stayed June 2014, travelled solo

Excellent location! Easy access by foot with carry-on luggage from secure parking at Kasbah of the Udayas to the Dar. After landing in Casablanca we rented a car and headed for Rabat. This was our first night stay in Marocco! Kind and helpful staff greeted us with their traditional mint tea! We also had our first supper at the Riad (excellent tagine) followed in the morning by a copious maroccan breakfast (2 kinds of pancakes, bread, jams, honey, fresh juice and luscious strawberries and coffee!). Our room was cosy and quiet. The patio was where we relaxed after a day of sightseeing. There we chatted with fellow travellers, browsed the library books and maps, and enjoyed our meals.

The Dar Alia was the first Riad for 2 nights we stayed in during our 14 day tour around Morocco. What a great start! Naima is an excellent host! She made us really feel welcome. First we were upgraded to the "Grande Suite", which was a pleasant surprise.
Dinner was typical Morrocan, which we appreciated, also breakfeast was good.
The Riad is located near the Kasbah and desbite being inside the Medine it can be reached easily in a 1 or 2 minute walk.

The Riad is placed near the Kasbah, with a park nearby (the one in front of the Kasbah). It is easy to reach also with heavy luggages.
The place is nice and the personnel is very very but very kind! We also have the possibility to have the dinner here and it was excellent.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and you can rest also in the common zone.

Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We booked this riad through booking.com and on the reservation, it has the name of the rooms. When we arrived, the owner told us that the rooms we had booked were single rooms (although it specifically stated double rooms for 2people on our booking confirmation) so she changed our rooms, except 1 room. Not really a good start. I suspect she had given our rooms to other guests.

The riad is nice but not as characteristic as some of the others raids where we stayed in Morocco.

The breakfast was poor compared to other places we stayed.

One good point, we arrived at about 9pm and the owner suggested a nice restaurant nearby for dinner.

We stayed 3 nights in Dar Alia. We were lucky to be upgraded to "Grande Suite Rbatia Double Room" which I strongly recommend despite the bigger price.The riad is really an explosion of colours, decorations , artifacts things that make it a very pleasant place to stay. Staff is kind and helpful. The only problem is to actually find the Riad in the first place....it's a real challenge.

I recently spent 3 nights at the Dar Alia with my family. My son is living in Rabat for the semester and we want to be close to his host family's home in the medina. We were a group of 6 people and rented 3 rooms in this beautiful ryad. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and quite beautiful. The ryad itself is stunning. Naima and her staff were attentive, helpful and very professional. The location of the ryad is perfect as it is in the middle of the medina, yet close to one of the exits so it was easy to get to our driver and the sights outside of the medina.
