We can only only endorse the previous 5 star reviews. In addition, when we arrived Alex explained that whilst we were staying there , we would be treated as part of their family. Subsequent events (that had nothing to do with the Riad) proved him true to his word. We suggest an in house dinner on at least one night,... More

The owners were so enthusiastic and accommodating. They even made a special meal for my son when we arrived because he had been sick that day. We loved the enchanting decor and wonderful rooftop terrace. We would have loved to stay longer! We will be back!

Excelent in location, acommodation, rooms, terrace and client services. Jasmine, Alexander and all the team are professional and highly friendly. Our experience was great, not easy to forget. Ask for the Services to the airport and oficial city guide. Take your time to appreciate furniture, fittings, materials in rooms and public areas.

We had only one quick day in Fes, but the staff at Riad Le Calife made it as enjoyable as possible. They had emailed us ahead of time to make sure they knew if they needed to pick us up and had asked if we wanted to have dinner there. We arrived in the evening after our 3-day tour through... More

Wow. What a beautiful building and room. So impressed and felt very luxurious for my normal haunts of hostels, but as a Christmas Day treat it was perfect. The terrace too...one of the best views of a medina that I'd seen in the whole of Morocco. Amazing hospitality from the owner and staff throughout. Very thoughtful during our stay and... More

My wife and I spent two nights here in December 2015. The service is excellent, the riad is beautiful, and the rooms are quiet and well-appointed. It is very close to some of the major sites of the medina. I would stay here again if I visited Fes. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to... More

What more can I say about this amazing place that hasn't been said.... We went on our honeymoon and every moment we were so glad we had the opportunity to stay there. We did get the diamond sweet, so if you can, go for it. Wow. A stunner. Also, chef was awesome. My wife has celiac disease and can't eat... More

Fes is my favorite city in Morocco thanks to the hospitality of Riad le Calife. It was our first time staying at a Riad and we loved every bit of it as it has so much character. First off, our hosts tried to contact us many time as they were worried that we wouldn't be able to find the hotel... More

I visited Fes as part of a business trip, and vowed I would return. When I did, I brought my two grown children along, who were anxious to see the riad as I had given it rave reviews. Riad le Calife was one of the highlights of the trip. Yasmine and Alex were as welcoming and thoughtful as before. The... More

Riad le Calife is a wonderful place! You simply feel like home from the first second you enter the door. Yasmine and Alexandrea and all other staff are very friendly, helpful, they just take care of everything. The Riad itself is beautifully decorated, very clean and cozy and it is great to relax on the comfortable couches on the terrace.... More
