Upon arriving you will walk down isolated alleys in the medina to a humble door. Open and you will be awed at the splendor inside. Literally heard sighs from people when they took in the riches of this riad. Each room is unique. Ours was on two levels with the bedroom being on the upper. Bathrooms on each floor. Must... More

As with all places in the old city in Fez, this Riad is a hidden treasure. Walking in off the street you find yourself in a beautiful, clean, quiet haven. My favorite part of visiting Fez was going to the roof top in the evening and hearing the calls to prayer through out the city.

We arrived to find we were the only guests in the riad for our 3 night stay! The entrance is beautiful! We were greeted by a very nice gentleman that spoke better english than my French or Arabic . Then it kind of went downhill. We were shown to our beautiful room with king bed and large jacuzzi tub. Once... More

Stayed at this Riad in December 2013 and found it to be a little cold. It has high ceilings suited for hot weather and I am sure it would have been nicer in summer. There was one heater high up the wall in our room and no heating in the bathroom. The bath was poorly finished, with no tiling around... More

We spent our first 3 nights in Morocco in Fes at the Riad Fes (a Relais Chateux property). The welcome was warm, amazing and embracing. We were accomodated for an early arrival and the staff was very helpful to assist in arranging a guide within our first few hours as well as restaurant recommendations. The property is remarkable and impressive.... More

The terrace of this hotel is the perfect scenario to watch the sunset, we had a late lunch with drinks there and had the most amazing view of the medina and the surroundings. Food was very good, there are options for those who want something different to Moroccan food. The service was excellent. We spent a fantastic afternoon there.

We stayed at this riad for 3 nights in a very large room overlooking the atrium. We had breakfastin the riad and they was very good. Unfortunately the shower plumbing leaked badly but we were allowed to use the shower in the adjacent room that was attached to our room in the event a larger family used this room. The... More

Having spent a week at this riad, I guess the biggest drawback is more cultural than anything else, but more about that later. We were a party of 5 so got to see the riad from all angles. The position in the medina (walled city) is excellent, not too far in, and close to the south side Suckts (markets) which... More

We loved it. My friend and I stayed in a charming room that was comfortable, quiet and beautiful. Great food and wonderful service. The staff could not have been more helpful, lost our luggage with medicine in it, they called a doctor who came and wrote a prescription that held us over until reunited with luggage.
