I visted with my wife and a great friend to celebrate my wifes 50th birthday and simply had a fabulous time. Alex and Jasmine were outstanding , as were all of the staff , being helpful, informative and very amusing company.They managed to blend the role of host with the privacy that we required in our visit. We arrived horribly... More

We spent a fabulous 3 nights at the Riad Le Calife, which is located in a small side alley near the Place Rcif, with fairly easy access to taxis if needed. Yasmine, Alexandre, Fatima and Frouke went out of their way to make us feel at home; we got a tour of the Riad on arrival and sat down over... More

May 2015. This was the best Riad we saw in our marocco tour the decoration and attention in every detail was amazing . Very clean with a small garden inside the Riad with a very beautiful Bar and Roof . Was extremely nice place and very relaxing. The owners Yasmin and her husband were helpful and very kind.

This Riad is very very beautiful and wonderfully appointed, however we had a confronting experience with the proprietors, Jasmine and Alex. 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...

Dear Mrs Melanie D. We cannot hide our astonishment to read your dishonest and deceitful words: « Safe had been accessed », « our goods were tampered »,« Someone had wronged us »… Your unique comment is clearly intended to reduce the image and the excellent reputation of our establishment. Moreover, as the facts you expose here are so far... More

Fabulous riad in Fes, a beautiful oasis of incredible hospitality, lovely decor and delicious food. Yasmine and Alex go above and beyond to make sure you feel totally at home in their riad and city. They gave excellent recommendations and directions to help us maximize our stay, including their recommended guide, Hassan (Kabbab), who was excellent. Dinner at the Riad... More

Yasmeen, Alex, and the team at Riad Le Calife could not have made us feel more at home! The Riad is beautiful (we stayed in the Rubis Room), the food was great, the rooftop views stunning, and most importantly they take the expression "treat your guests like royalty" to a whole new level. Couldn't recommend this Riad more .. also... More

Very beautiful place! We loved the room (Rubis), it's very big and very well decorated! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious! Our tour guide for the desert picked us up very early in the morning, so the Riad made us a special breakfast. I would recommend it 100%!

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.

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
