By far the best ryad we have stayed at on our trip. It had the holy trinity for a Moroccan winter getaway: heat, hot shower and WiFi! But in all seriousness this place is stunning. Really large ryad on a side street right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Fes El Bali. Really quiet at night and... More

Luke and I had a wonderful stay in this medina dar. The bed was comfortable and there plenty of blankets for the cool Fes nights making it unnecessary to even turn on the heat. The dar is beautifully restored and had charm like we could definitely not get in a hotel. The location was perfect within the medina: deep enough... More

My flatmate Serena and I just had one night in Dar El Ma but we really loved it. We were in a huge room, with a double bed and another one up on the mezzanine level. We had to huddle together for bodily warmth though, as Fes is freezing in January. This is a small but very pretty Riad with... More

Dar el Ma was PERFECT - exactly what my fiance and I were looking for. It feels so Moroccan and is in such a fantastic location near Bab Boujloud (I admit, difficult to find, but you won't find much else in Fes). Houda, the manager, is delightful - so welcoming, kind, and warm. We did a cooking class with her... More

Claire and Joe's house is AMAZING. Literally one of the coolest places I've stayed while traveling. While it may be confusing to navigate to the first time, it's tucked away from the noise of the medina. The lounge area is comfortable and spacious as are the bedrooms. My favorite part of the stay was breakfast served by Houda on the... More

Plunge into the Moroccan way of life.. This warm and cozy riad is full of charm! Since there are only 2 rooms, it feels like you have the whole riad by yourself. Great rooftop views, lovely breakfast and to top it off the best shower you can imagine!

Our introduction to Moroccan hospitality started when we arrived in Dar El Ma. Houda, the young woman who welcomed us, was a fantastic manager. The room was exceptionally clean, the terrace provided wonderful views and a quiet place in the morning to reflect on the busy world outside the riad doors. Each morning the breakfasts were a treat. Within a... More

We spent only one night in Fez and the Riad of Claire and Joe was one of the most pleasant things that we saw there :) The view from the terrace is unforgetable and the room we slept in was very comfortable. Houda, the housekeeper, helped us around with the transfer from the station, breakfast and taxi. Highly recommend to... More

It was amazing that we found it. 3 steps in the medina and we were lost. But we were lost in Heaven. It is a beautifull riad with two rooms. Just renovated in the old style. The waterfall shower is amazing. A beautifull view from the roof. Good breakfast and a nice staff.

My partner and I loved our stay! It had an incredible view of the Medina, and within great ear shot to nearby minarets, allowing us to hear the call to prayer when on the rooftop (one of my favorite experiences). Our hosts were very helpful and eager to give us tips to make the best of our holiday. The riad... More
