This beautiful hotel in riad style is located in a small street in centre of Medina, few minutes from Bab Bou Jeloud and Medersa Bou Inania. We spent there one night. The staff was very lovely and helpful. They offered us royal suite in price of regular room. They have nice terrace with beautiful view. There is high speed internet... More

THE RIAD: This was our first night in Fes, and first experience of a Riad. Initially it came across as a nice looking place, with a colourful courtyard and Said was very welcoming. It's in a good location, within 2 mins of the Medina and 5 from the Blue Gate. The price felt about right, but after staying in 3... More

Booked 2 nights in advance via Booking.com otherwise would have only stayed one night. Cold dark room dirty shared bathroom and unfriendly and ' hassly ' staff. One guy nasty and dismissive of our independent plans . ( no doubt because he could not sell us a tour or similar) . We have stayed in cheaper warmer and cleaner places... More

The rooms are dirty. The bed was not clean, you could see and feel, that they did not change the bedding, which is just disgusting. I tried to clean the bathroom but it was so dirty, that i couldn't fix it. The toiletseat was over and over packed with old urin. The shower didn't got warm. The host was unfriendly... More

We stayed in the DAR for almost a week and had a real great time. Beautiful place with a great atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. Said & Ahmed were always there when we had any questions. All minor issues were solved immediately. First we stayed 2 nights in the top room, after a two night break we came... More

Dar Bouanania in Fes is a good economical guest house. It is located in the heart of the medina around the corner from its namesake medersa. It is comfortable and reasonably priced, with a quiet indoor courtyard. They serve a good breakfast, and the two gentlemen who manage the place provide good information and directions.

I was traveling with a friend, and we stayed 3 nights in Dar Bouanania. A local guide took us there when we got to the old medina. We got a room with two twin beds and a shared toilet and shower. The room was nice and linens were clean. In our floor there were two toilet & shower rooms. They... More

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
