This Riad is very beautiful and wonderfully appointed, however we had a confronting experience with the proprietors. When we were having dinner downstairs, our room was entered and we found that my husband's travel bag was opened (we could tell as there is a trick to closing it, so it was left unfastened) and that our safe had been accessed....

I'm just a working girl from Honolulu but was treated like a Princess throughout my too short stay. Was greeted by Alex, shown a map of Fez, with all his great suggestions and warnings. Found it so refreshing he cared that I had the best time in his city. That evening Jasmine called to see how I was doing and... More

We have just spent four nights here and there is no doubt that they fully deserve their top rating on Trip Advisor. The proud owners Alex & Yasmine have a beautifully restored riad in a very good location but their attention to detail and excellent customer service surpass expectations. Their advice and help make it easy to enjoy Fez as... More

We would like to add to all the rave reviews of this lovely Riad. The Riad facilities and rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable, but the main reason to stay here is the kindness of Alex and Jasmine and their staff. Our stay was memorable in so many ways. Every time we would thank either Alex or Jasmine they... More

This riad is well deserving of the high rating on TA, Excellent home base for exploring the old medina, The owners, Jasmine and Alexandre can't do enough for us. We stayed in the Rubis suite, the suite is just beautiful and have everything we needed and then some, both a gorgeous bathtub and a shower. Breakfasts and dinners on the... More

In a word excellent. From the moment we arrived nothing was to much trouble for the staff, Alex or Jasmine. The Riad is like a little Oasis in the middle of the chaos in the Madina. The room we stayed in was perfect, it was immaculately decorated in traditional Moroccan decor but with all the mod cons you would expect.... More

I can't think of one mediocre aspect of this Riad. The grounds and rooms are tastefully decorated and clean, the staff is friendly and helpful at all times, the food is amazing (great job, Fatima!), and their recommendations for guides and drivers are excellent. The whole operation is professional, yet personal. It is not uncommon to hear a Moroccan host... More

A gorgeous riad a short walk from the taxi, inside the old medina. This riad has it all, beautifully appointed rooms with make up mirrors, hair dryer, easy to reach light switches and the best pillows. The decor is portugese/moroccan with dark wood and lots of books and antiques. The view from the terrace is spectacular. Alex and Yasmine are... More

Riad le Calife is the best Riad for those who seek a comfort, tasteful and peaceful place to stay within the Medina of Fes. Yasmine and Alexander are both very professional and makes you feel like home. All members of the staff had been exceptional. Once you pass the entrance of Riad le Calife, you enter a magical world, surrounded... More

I was travelling through Morocco on my own and arrived in Fez rather late, I was emailed the day before to find out what time I arrived and I had a driver waoting for me at the bus stop on arrival. He drove me to the medina and one of thw staff was waiting to help me with my bags... More
