The Riad Le Calife is its own world - one of beauty and calm - in the midst of another world, the bustling, labyrinthine, challenging but fascinating old medina of Fez. The entire team at the Riad engage in a cheerful and helpful way to make your stay special from the moment you arrive to the time when you sadly... More

My trip from Sydney to Morocco was a spur of a moment decision and I made no firm arrangements. It was therefore pot luck that I picked Le Calife in Fes on the booking.com site once I completed my High Atlas and Erg Chebi desert adventure. I travelled to many other locations in Morocco over my four weeks there but... More

Spacious rooms, lovely courtyard and roof terrace. Excellent service from the staff and owners who are always around to help plan your day. Do not let the car... More

All we can say is the owners, Jasmine and Alexandre have overlooked nothing when it comes to top notch customer service and satisfaction! Their entire staff follows up on every minute detail or possible concern. The riad is beautifully appointed and you can tell how much thought went in to making it special with all the beautiful antiques. After 11... More

I do not think we could have chosen a more hospitable, more beautiful, more perfect riad for our stay in Fes. Sadly we were at Riad Le Calife for just two nights but with help from Alexandre and Yazmine, we made the most of our short time in this intriguing city. After staying in a couple of other lovely but... More

We booked the diamond suite which is literally breathtaking. The room is huge and wonderfully appointed with an eclectic mix of antiques--imagine an old radio, European side table and a wooden Occidental headboard. There is a lovely sitting area with almost floor to ceiling windows with stained glass. The bathroom has a huge tub, shower room, double sinks and a... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find Riad Le Calife to be a four star accommodation. The Riad is absolutely beautiful. The architecture alone is amazing and the decorating impeccable. We had the Amber Room right off the courtyard and it was absolutely lovely and very comfortable. The owners, Jasmine and Alex are outstanding hosts. It is their mission to make... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We found the Riad to be charming and unique even by Moroccan standards- it is clean and highly recommended. We found the breakfast to be truly outstanding. We arrived 1 day early and our room was not available, so we stayed in another suite. Both the suites (Ruby and Emerald) were... More

We had an absolutely magnificent stay at Riad Le Calife. Yasmine and Alexandre provide a welcoming feel to this elegant and inviting riad. The entire staff is extremely polite and helpful. Our room was beautifully appointed with period pieces and careful attention to details and comfort. Dinner and breakfast were superb!
