Morocco’s capital, Rabat, has finally come out of the shadows, standing alongside the popular metropolises of Fez and Marrakech with aplomb. Palm-lined boulevards dot the neat, quieter city, which has much to offer in terms of local food, historic landmarks, and gorgeous architecture in the form of an attractive walled medina and a vivid, expressive kasbah. It is only fitting, then, to explore Rabat out of a traditional ‘riad’ (Arabic for 'garden’), which is a restored Moroccan home with Andalusian/Moroccan architecture and local Moroccan cuisine. Riads are known so for leafy, lush florae, often centered around open-to-the-sky courtyards, complete with trickling stone or marble fountains and alfresco dining spaces. Here are some of the best riads in Rabat, Morocco.

1. Riad Meftaha (from USD 63)

This quiet Riad features a modern building with pleasantly decorated rooms complete with flat-screen satellite TV, private bathrooms, comfy beds and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms even have a seating area. Tip: The pick of the bunch is undoubtedly the terrace suite. The Riad serves a generous breakfast set around an authentic patio. A 24-hour reception, car hire services, and activities in the surroundings such as fishing, cycling, and golfing make your stay at Riad Meftaha enjoyable. Riad Meftaha is just a six-minute walk from Kasbah Oudaya, while the Moroccan Parliament is just a km (0.6 miles) away.
