Rabat must be the loveliest and most peaceful Moroccan city. With its cobalt blue walls and cobbled streets, it reminds you more of an unspoiled Greek island than North Africa. Cheap hotels in Rabat start at about £40 and the more up-market about £94. Modern, spacious and colourful, Rabat hotels are geared up to get you in the mood for Morocco, often with Moroccan cuisine and Berber entertainment. Look around the Old Town in Rabat Medina for the best choice of cheap hotels in Rabat. Autumn and Spring will give you the best rates.
The little blue taxis are everywhere in the city to whizz you to your destination through the traffic. The standard fare is 1.7 dirhams plus 0.5 dh for every 100m. Trains to Casablanca run twice an hour and the journey takes 1.5 hours. The round trip costs 29.50 dh. In Rabat, don't miss a visit to the Chellah, a marvellous ancient site in lovely gardens, the Mausoleum of Mohammed V and the old Kasbah des Oudaias with its gorgeous keyhole arches and trademark blue tiling. Eating out around the Medina is a culinary adventure; try the delicious Makouda, deep-fried potato balls dipped in spicy harissa sauce from a street stall, or opt for one of the upmarket restaurants. You can find fast-food chains too if you want a rest from all those spices. For nightlife, there are old-time local hangouts around Place des Alaouites or more trendy in the Agdal area.
With a great choice of cheap Rabat hotels, you will have the delights of the Medina on your doorstep, and the peace of your own place when you need to rest, recover, and gird yourself for another stroll through the souks.
