The owner and staff were very nice, and the included breakfast was great, as was the rooftop terrace and the small pool. The hotel's dinner (which we had only once) was a bit limited and slightly pricey for Morocco, but very good. There were several small street cafes within 50 yards of this place, as well as a variety of street food. The location was excellent, as you can walk to the Kasbah (5 min), ATM's (2 min), the Tour of Hassan (20-25 min), the Rabat Ville train station (20-25 min, though it would be difficult with rolling luggage as parts of the medina are rocky), and even the ruins of Chella (50 min--we took a cab for about $1.50). This hotel is about 100 yards from the intersection of Ave Laalou and Ave Mohammed V, which is a northern entrance to the vehicle-less medina. (Note: the northern section of Ave Mohammed V allows no cars, but the southern part, near downtown and the Rabat Ville train station, south of the medina, does allow cars. Also note that this northern section of the medina is not too crowded. We felt very safe. The wifi worked well, too. We really enjoyed our time in Rabat, and the Riad Zyo and the surrounding neighborhood were key elements of that.
