  • 6.0.Good

    Property overrated in previous previews. Riad is ok, breakfast is basic. Very difficult to acces, although I know Rabat is a safe city, I was not comfortable walking after dinner with kids to get back to hotel.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I did not like anything, the room was terrible. It had a creepy feel to it. During my trip this was the most expensive Riad I stayed in and the worst.

    Great location, in the heart of the Medina. This is not your common-or-garden corporate large-chain hotel: Rather this feels authentically and traditionally Moroccan, and is all the better for it

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Dar el Kebira exceeded my expectations and hopes. I stayed for four heavenly nights at this wonderful establishment tucked just inside the medina and would return in a heartbeat. After my transportation, arranged by Dar el Kebira, dropped me, Yunez warmly welcomed me and led me to the property where Safoune welcomed me again, reviewed an excellent map with me and ensured I would settle in pleasantly. Thrilled by the elegant interior decoration complementing the stunning centuries old tiles and fretwork, I retired to my large and inviting room. There were all the little special touches such as bottled water, bathrobes and flip flops, making my stay that much more comfortable. Their restaurant features superb Moroccan cuisine; actually some of the best I've had in three weeks of traveling in Morocco. They sometimes make homemade yogurt included in their sumptuous breakfast. They provided laundry service, specific maps and guidance. Every person who works there is truly lovely, friendly and welcoming. Safouane was like a gracious host welcoming you to his home. I loved everything about Dar el Kebira and believe you will too.

    I loved everything about Dar El Kebira from the beauty of the interiors to the comfort and spaciousness of my room to the delicious restaurant. Most especially, though, I appreciate the genuine hospitality of Safouane the manager and all the good folks who work there. It's a wonderful place to rest your weary head.

    Beautiful Riad in the heart of the city. Décor was fabulous. Breakfast could be little better. We had travelled for 2 weeks in different cities of Morocco and stayed @ different Villas, Riads, Kasbah, hotels. Breakfast in smaller Riads were much better and service very personal.
