We stayed 5 nights at the Riad Le Calife and had the most fabulous experience - far exceeding expectations. 5 stars all the way - wonderful comfortable bed, huge thick towels, a plate of fresh fruit and water in our room, and attentive assistance throughout our stay. Riad Le Calife has been beautifully restored and modernised in a traditional way... More

What can I say about Riad Le Calife? We simply love it there. We've stayed twice now. Both in 2014 and most recently Feb 2015. It is the only place we stayed in again on this second trip to Morocco. Owners Alex and Yasmine are lovely people. Extremely helpful, they just want you to love your stay not only at... More

This hotel has a beatiful terrace on the roof, and a beatiful location in the middle of the medina! We arrived at cinema amal, when we were there a piccolo stood there and he took our cases uphill to the hotel. The peiple here are very, very nice and the hospitality is great!

Alex and Yasmine have done a wonderful job restoring this beautiful old building. No one could wish for warmer, more welcoming hosts. The location is also excellent, in the Medina but just far enough from the main tourist area that the alleys are uncrowded and tourists not hassled. We plan to go back as soon as possible!

There is a reason why Riad Le Calife is #1 in Fes and that is because it is delightfully gorgeous and completely full of charm. Alex and Yasmin go out of their way to ensure your stay is not only pleasant whilst you are within their walls but also outside - their recommendations were always bang on. Fes is not... More

We travel a lot and have stayed in palaces and leading hotels as well as a wide range of other accommodation around the world. Rarely if ever have we found a place so lovely and hosts so concerned to ensure our stay was perfect. The suite we stayed in (Rubis) was luxurious and filled with interesting objects. Much more like... More

We were completely enchanted by this riad in the Fes medina. Alex and Yasmine treated us like special guests, and we feel as though we have made new friends. Everything was wonderful, from the gracious staff to the oasis of the beautiful inner courtyard. The riad is decorated in a trendy mix of old and new, and had a delicate... More

Everything that has been said below, and more. There's not a lot I can add. This place is incomparable and the helpful staff and the hosts, Alex and Yasmin, are a delight. We stayed four nights in the gorgeous diamante suite. A wonderful oasis in the Fes medina. I can't imagine why you would stay anywhere else in Fes.

While traveling with a friend through the holidays we spent three days in Morocco. I found Riad Le Calife on TA, and based on the reviews booked our stay. The hosts, Yasmine and Alexandre, are most attentive and caring. I received a very friendly welcome with digital maps and other information shortly after reserving our room, and before our arrival...
