Dar Zouhour is a small home consisting of three suites and three rooms. We stayed in the La Sultane suite on the bottom floor, and as you can see, the room was absolutely breath-taking.
|La Sultane room|
The service was top notch and very welcoming. When we arrived they gave us a tour of the house and gave us maps and literature on the city to help with our exploring in the following days. Everyone in the hotel was fluent in Moroccan Arabic, French, and English.
The bed was very comfortable and the room was exotic. We loved waking up to all the beautiful tile work around us and the old wooden ceilings. It was a visual delight, and the colors exploded on the wall as sunlight spilled into the room.

The bathroom in the suite was very large and well maintained. There was a huge walk in shower, perhaps 4x7 and even had a seating area on one side. So nice!
They had a TV and wireless internet access, but honestly, who cares? You're in Morocco people! If you're hiding out in your hotel watching Morocaan T.V. then there's something wrong with you!
|The common area with view door to our suite|
Each suite is built around a common area. It has huge glass ceiling so there is always natural light in the mornings. They serve breakfast here and it is such a feast! They cook up breads and crepes and serve fruit and teas. It was a great way to start the morning and got us off on the right foot as we headed out the door.
Like I had mentioned, the hotel is right in the middle of Rabat. You're staying in the heart of the Medina, within walking distance to the following sites:
Kasbah des Oudaias
Mausoleum of King Mohammed V
Overall, our experience was fantastic. The lodging, the help, and the price were all great! If I were forced to make one complaint it would be that there isn't much privacy in the suites. The windows (above) of the suites are no more than worked metal, and sounds travels through them as if no barrier were in place. So if privacy ranks high on your Maslow's hierarchy scale, it may be better to rent one of their rooms instead of a suite downstairs.
