Re: Can anyone recommend a nice hotel in Rabat

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. I am really grateful. Since I only have one night in town I'm keen to stay in the medina and to be somewhere with interesting architecture/history/atmosphere even if it costs a bit more. I am tempted by Riad Dar Al Batoul (http://www.riadbatoul.com/). Does anyone have any experience of it?

JJ1: Did you stay at Dar Al Bahoul? And, if so, would you recommend it? Do all rooms have shower? Western toilet? We're traveling in April, want to stay in a Riad in the Medina. Thanks!

Travel Tips for Rabat

photograph the awesome Royal...

by Krystynn

photograph the awesome Royal Palace.

However, for mere mortals like us (that's you and I)... the Royal Palace can only be admired from the outside. :-(( Built in 1864, it comprises several buildings, among which include the:-

- Royal Cabinet

- Offices of the Prime Minister

- Supreme Court

- Imperial College

- Royal Barracks and

- Al Faeh Mosque.... from which the King, accompanied by his Court, directs the Friday prayer. Come on a Friday and you'd be able to catch a glimpse of this mini-procession. :-)) Photo Below: That's moi standing just outside the Palace of His Royal Majesty, the King of Morocco.... trying to see if there's a way I can get in to the Palace! :-)

The Hassan Mosque

by DanielF

Rabat's main attraction are the ruins of the Hassan mosque and the opposite Mohamed V mausoleum.

The Hassan Mosque was conceived as the biggest in the world at the time, when Jacob Al Mansoor established the capital of his Almohade empire in Rabat. However, the building was never completed for unknown reasons.

What we see today is a large explanade with the rests of the columns and a bulky red-brick tower (Hassan Tower) which is the emblem of the city. This tower is also unfinished and has a great resemblance with the two other famous minarets let built by the Almohades: the Koutoubia in Marrakeh and the Giralda in Seville.

Just opposite, you can visit Mohammed V's mausoleum, a rather kitschy modern Islamic monument where the rests of Mohammed V are buried. He was the king who led the struggle for independence in Morocco and established a tyrannic feudal monarchic system, and therefore, officially venerated as the father of the country.

Safety

by keeweechic

There is no need to take extra precautions than you would normally in any other city. There is an apparent police force around as well as those not in an identifying uniform. Pickpockets will always be around, wherever you are so take care with your belongings.

We are now in the shoemaker's souk (Souk des Cordonniers) area with dozens of shoe shops. They used to make shoes in their shops, but now, this is not the case anymore. Shoes are produced in Morocco but not anymore in the souk.

''Royal fish''

by JLBG

I had never seen such a large royal fish ! Never try to take a picture of someone without asking. Not all the shop keepers will accept, but when they do, write down their address and send them the picture (don't forget !). Never, never give money for a picture !
