The staff were extremely pleasent and helpful. The room was very well accommodated. I have to say that throughout my visit to Morocco Dar El Kebira was good value, however I was not blown away. I had stayed in much better in other places in Morocco.

Although I was very well received, I would not return to this riad. I have visited quite a few all over Morocco and this one is just okay but not outstanding. What I really did not like was the very strong mouldy smell all over the place. There is definitely a problem with airing the rooms, my clothes even felt...

Stayed here for a night, great place to explore Rabat from with excellent staff. Nicely decorated, comfortable and worth the visit. It is easy to find by following the signs in the Medina. Would go back!

We stayed a night on a tour of Morocco. The welcome was friendly enough, the room quite clean and comfortable. but that was it. The room was a tad narrow (to be fair, that is not uncommon in riads located in medinas). The tub was dangerously narrow - one had to balance oneself precariously while taking a shower. While leaving,...

Romantic surroundings and impeccable service are the best ways to describe this Riad. Although we arrived later than expected, the caring staff made us feel welcomed as though we were their first clients of the day. They even arranged a late meal that was amazing, and they never made us feel rushed. The location is excellently placed to explore the...

We spent a few nights in the Riad Dar El Kebira and found it to be a very comfortable, quiet and attractive place to stay. The rooms, furniture and antique furnishings were lovely. The place is kept spotlessly clean. The food (and Moroccan wine) were extremely good, and vegetarians were well catered for. The staff were very helpful and efficient....

We were welcomed to the Riad Dar El Kebira with some mint tea and a friendly face which was very welcome after a slightly arduous journey from the station to the Riad. Dar El Kebira is ideally placed in the Rabat Medina right next to the main shopping street and just a short walk to the beach views - you...

Half a cup of terrible lukewarm tea upon arrival. They didn't have the room we booked so without apology tried to give us an awful room for the same price. Nice Riad but not worth more than $70/night.
