What a wonderful 3 nights we had in Le Calife. From the moment the bellboy met our grand-taxi in the square and brought us to the Riad desk where we were served delicious iced mint tea, while we filled out our paper work. we knew we were in a very special place. Our beautiful room had complimentary fruit, pastries, water... More

Words cannot describe the hospitality and warmth of Yasmine, Alex and Douha. We arrived at the Riad in the afternoon and were welcomed by Douha with a lovely mint tea. After checking in she took the time out to explain to us how to get around the town and things we needed to see during our short stay there. The... More

We had a beautiful time at the riad, where we spent 5 nights during our honeymoon. Pros: - We stayed in the Diamante room. It was absolutely gooooorgeous, with several stained glass windows and beautiful decor. You can tell they really pay attention to detail by the decorations throughout the riad. We have never stayed in such a beautiful room.... More

We stayed at the riad for three days and our stay was truly delightful. We were collected from the airport and despite the unimpressive approach to the riad once we were in the door it was fantastic. Douane and Merjala could not have been kinder or more thoughtful and very sweet with two oldies. Our room had been upgraded and... More

We visited the Riad for a quick Anniversary break and to visit the Music Festival. Everything was made easy and delightful from the airport pick up (do it) to the care and attention that Yasmine and the Team give to your comfort. We had a fantastic meal on arrival and then settled in to our lovely room. I had a... More

We booked online only the day we planned to arrive and received a very quick reply giving clear assistance for parking near the Riad. On arrival and during our 4 day stay, everyone was very helpful, giving advice on things to see, offering to make reservations at restaurants etc. The owners are charming and clearly want their guests to enjoy...

We spent two nights at Riad le Calife and would have happily stayed for several more. The riad is in the medina convenient to explore different areas. The building is a traditional old private mansion which has been converted to a hotel. Our room was very large and faced the central courtyard which meant it was quiet and protected from... More

We had wanted to stay in a riad and chose Riad Le Calife based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We traveled by train to Fes and arranged with the Riad to be met by a car and driver. It is well worth it. Not only were we met at the train station but when we arrived at the closest place to... More

This is the fifth of eleven reviews in Morroco, following our stay in Meknes, and to be followed by another in Fes. Stayed on 24th to 26th April, 2014. This is one of the top places we stayed in, and at the end of our trip, it has probably emerged as our favourite against some very tough choices. It is... More
