The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quite small but there are options to up grade to the larger room types. All the rooms are unique and eclectic and are authentic Moroccan in décor and style. The location is fabulous but if travelling alone I wouldn’t suggest not walking to and from the markets alone at night...

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for staying with us at Dar el kebira and for sharing your thoughts with Tripadvisor's community. It is true that our Riad is perfectly located near the famous Rue des consuls, a step away from the kasbah of oudayas and main touristic attractions. Please note that Rabat's old medina is very secure even for...

I stayed at Dar El Kebira near the end of August and I had an amazing experience. Amina was amazing and helpful. I would suggest that anyone visiting Rabat should stay here. When we arrived we were greeted with a cup of tea and suggestions of things to see in the city. The first night we ordered from the Riad...

Our stay at Dar El Kebira was a mix of good and disappointment. Here's the breakdown: Pros: - Pretty, decorative riad - Good location near Oudayas Kasbah, Rue des Consuls (main shopping pedestrian street), Le Dhow (docked boat for late night drinks), and access to cabs (more on cabs below) - Good breakfast, which is pleasant on the terrace if...

Yes, of course, Rabat has the chain hotels which will make you feel like you have not left home, but who wants that, really? The Riad DeK is intimate, old and charming. It is located in a quiet corner of the Medina. The staff is helpful and very proud of their place. Surely, there are things to complain about but...

Dar el Kebira is in a great location -- just inside the medina across from the Oudayas...close enough to walk to souiqa and downtown if you want, and close to all the river/beach sites as well -- excellent breakfast, too!

The staff was exceptional. Kind, welcoming, friendly, and they went out of their way to be incredibly helpful at every turn. I wish I could say about the manager, but I cannot. The manager was very cold and explicitly transactional. The woman (I hate that I forgot her name) that greeted us on Monday morning was kind enough initially, but...

Great service. Staff are professional and friendly. Couldn't ask more of them. They welcomed us with a nice cup of tea, helped us navigate the Medina (even handed us a map) and gave instructions where to park our rental car (and how much we should expect to pay for it). Rooms are small but cosy. They have all the comfort...

I find this Riad magical, there is so much love to detail all around it! It transports you to the real moroccan way of living. Everyone was extremely kind, food was delicious and the location was perfect. Do not leave without enjoying your breakfast at the terrace, simply fantastic! I will definitely come back!
