We stayed here for 2 nights. The building is beautifully decorated (Riad style) and is centrally located in the Medina. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were a bit muffy and dark downstairs but then again relatively cool with an outside temperature of 42 degrees celcius. The shared bathrooms looked like they hadn't been cleaned for quite a while but... More

We really liked this place. The staff was friendly, and it was beautifully decorated, conveniently located and easy to find. We loved the breakfasts in the morning and just sitting in the courtyard. Our one big problem was that we had a room on the top floor which was set up to sleep four, and the bathroom up there was... More

Well this time I had my bad hotel experience. All started smooth, we contacted the hotel on a short notice, and advised Said (the carekeeper) that our arrival will be very late afzer 2 am in the morning. He was ready to pick us up at the nearby Blue Gate of Fes. We managed to find the hotel by ourselves.... More

This small riad in a quite street in the heart of the medina of fez is simply beautifull, clean and really really cheap. The staff is very nice and helpfull. You really want to stay here while in fez. 300 dirham for a double room with shared bathroom, but you will share it with jus 2 other room.

This is a lovely little pension right in the heart of the shopping district of the medina and close to most Restaurants. We stayed in the 'suite" , which was a little pricier than the other rooms , but much bigger and quieter as it is not on the ground floor. The pension is run by a lovely lady called... More

Situated in a fantasic spot right in the Fes medina, this Dar (a sort of riad) was cheap and comfortable but in a fairly basic way. We stayed for here 6 nights during our 5 week Morocco visit in 2011. Hard to find initially because it's in the medina, it is ideally situated a few metres off the main souk... More

This riad (dar?) was well located and everything functioned as it should (ie wifi available in the atrium ground floor, hot showers, quiet for sleeping). Despite its good location it was a challenge to find initially (but I think most places would be?). If you can find the "clocks" landmark (and Cafe Clock) if you keep heading south (with Blue...

I stayed here in early 2010 (I've just joined TripAdvisor, so I'm catching up!) with my husband. The staff were incredibly lovely and the rooms were clean and tidy. What I loved was how quiet the place was - even though there were many guests, I couldn't hear anyone - really peaceful. Also, good value for money, and very close... More

I have recently travel to Morocco with family and friends and we have stayed in Dar Bouanania riad. It is true that the central courtyard of the house looks pretty good, but the rooms are not the best. We must accept that the price is cheap, but paying the same in other cities in Morocco we had more quality and... More

We had a great 4 days in Fez based at Dar Bouanania. The hostel was beautiful and very atmospheric and we appreciated really feeling like we were in Morocco! It was comfortable and has a great roof terrace to hang out on. The only downsides were that it was quite cold and damp and the bathrooms were pretty low quality.... More
