Rabat, authentic and comfortable: For my stay of 3 weeks I couldn't have chosen a better place than Elena's wonderful riad in the old medina of Rabat. The comfort, the garden, and the cleanliness of the big room - just as shown on the fotos - is one side, but the other side is Elena as a perfect host. She made every wish come true, from the transfer to the airport to coat chees and wonderful tomatojam for breakfast, I felt as a queen and we had a lot to laugh together.
It is a privilege to stay in a marocon riad in the centre of an old arabic town with the marocon life and the souk just in front of your door, so close to the sea and the Oudayas.
It was a wonderful stay and I say thank you Elena - I will come back.
Ce fut un vrai délice de passer de l affairement chaotique de la médina au havre de paix d Héléna, ponctue par le chant du muezzin.Une adresse a recommander pour son authenticité. Tam et Eliane
Just wanted to say a big thanks to Elena for opening up her home to us and for tolerating our silly questions! Your home is special and we loved your style of hospitality :) especially your breakfasts and early morning conversations and advice.
An Oasis in the Heart of Rabat
On walking into Elena's riad, you are initially struck by how beautiful and majestic the building is. With the stunning stone arches, wonderful zellij and garden with immensely tall swaying palm trees, the riad is a stunning display of Jewish / Arab architectural history. Over time you come to realise the house has an amazing calming vibe, that evaporates all the hubbub of the surrounding Medina the second you step in the door.
My room was a large salon with the bed on the mezzanine. This left plenty of room to sit and relax. The bathroom was also well designed with a large shower, and much to my pleasure was spotlessly clean and fresh.
The breakfasts were one of the highlights for me, in addition to Elena's engaging conversation!! Freshly brewed coffee with traditional Moroccan breakfast fare - 3-4 kinds of savoury pancakes, crumpet like things (that actually tasted like scones!!) or crepes, served with Elena's delicious homemade jams.
Elena was immensely helpful on how to get about Rabat, what to see and where to eat. Having just moved to Rabat, she had lots of great advice and tips for me. All of which saved me much of the anguish of finding your feet in a new city.
One other thing I really liked, was that while you were in the medina proper, you were less than a minute away from the main road. As such, you felt very safe coming and going, no matter what time of the day. Yet, 2 minutes walk and you are in the main through-fair of the medina - Avenue Mohammed V with all the shops, restaurants and stalls.
I had a great stay, and felt I became part of this extended family of Elena's - with her son and wonderful animals.
Perfect and most warmest reception - all descriptions ahead are not real. They are far better in reality.
Wonderful, quiet, peaceful place with a host as warm and caring as possible.
We LOVED staying with Elena! Her riad is absolutely gorgeous, and Elena went out of her way to be sure we had a great time in Rabat, including great recommendations on attractions and restaurants. I would highly highly recommend this Airbnb to anyone! I hope we can make it back again.
Nous avons été très bien accueilli, Elena nous reçoit comme un membre de sa famille. Hôte aux petits soins, Riad magnifique et ressourçant.
