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

My wife and I loved our time at Riad Le Calife. Fes is an incredible city, but it is also a bit daunting. Yasmine and Alexandre, the owners, take the time to make sure you know where you are going in the Medina. They are also lovely people who make you feel at home in their riad. Their staff is... More

As mentioned in the hundreds of opinions regarding this hotel, you cannot find a better place in Fes. The Riad itself is impressive. A small / boutique type hotel that will take your breath away. The Riad has been restored to show all its grandeur. Every single detail has been carefully thought of. The decor is amazing. We stayed 3... More

This was our first experience staying at a riad and so when we first arrived at Fes, we were quite taken aback with the narrow lanes leading to the Riad. As we entered the riad, we immediately abandoned our condescending thoughts over imprudent accommodation decisions. The entrance to the riad is spectacular. We later realised that a riad is a...

There are so many wonderful things to say about this place and its owners that I don't even know where to start! This place is a gem, nested at the detour of a tiny street. You can't imagine what you're about to discover until you walk in. The garden is enchanting, bathed in the sun and soooo quiet and resting.... More

The Riad is extremely beautifully decorated with local decor. The room is very spacious, lovely and clean. We stayed at Rubis room (the middle priced one) which gives convenient access to the terrace that offer fantastic sunset view. It is a good place to relax and enjoy a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Dinner is delicious with... More

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

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!
