Great location close to the entrance to the medina, which is great if you're lugging baggage or purchases! Manager is very pleasant and female staff behind the scenes are very sweet. Breakfast is the bomb! My room had many nice Moroccan features and had every convenience. Air conditioning worked very well, it was nice to sleep by. If you request... More

I traveled here for a two day stay in Rabat, the manager (Naima if I remember correctly) was there to welcome us on arrival and instantly made us feel at home, we sat down to enjoy a delicious mint tea while she gave my friend and I great tips on places the monuments to visit and the best restaurants in...

Riad Dar Alia is easy to find and has many rooms to offer. The brilliance of the sun on the terrace rooftop and into the Riad is breathtaking. Breakfast is filling and fresh and the rooms are wonderfully comfortable. We were able to arrive early and we were accommodated quickly. Everyone there makes you feel so welcome!

We arrived here having accidentally made a reservation for Alia's sister Riad "Dar Aida" 5 months too late (booked for September and arrived in April). Staff were very accommodating, and gave us a room at Alia for a discounted price (closer to Aida's prices). The riad itself is a bit dated and could do with a spruce up (our shower... More

Initially a bit difficult to find, but once there it's a great location to walk to most of the sights. Riad is architecturally beautiful with much fine detailing--tike work, wood carving, and painted doors. Good linens. Room was small and bathroom even smaller, but comfortable. Shower curtain was mildewed and grout in shower needed cleaning. WiFi not available in room.... More

This is a fairly traditional Riad conveniently located near the periphery of the Medina. The rooms were quite comfortable and quiet, and certainly worth the modest cost. Bathrooms were adequate as was the air-conditioning. Wifi was available in the common area only, but this was not a major inconvenience. What distinguishes this Riad is the friendliness and helpfulness of the... More

We stayed at this Riad on our last night in Morocco after spending 6 nights at other Riads all in Medina's. Our driver was lost and rang the riad on several occasions, but no one answered the phone and we had to wait until he could get someone to help with directions.

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.
