This Riad is exactly as advertised and perfect for families. We traveled as four adults and 6 children ages 2, up to age 11. We arranged dinner in the Riad after a long day of travel, enjoyed each morning breakfast on the warm terrace and delighted in the traditional craftsmanship of this 400 year old home. Perfect location. Zakariah is... More

Fes medina itself is a magnificent place to discover. A real culture shock for us to arrive there but caretaker Zakariah's recommendation of tour guide helped us a lot and got us acquainted with the place. Our stay in Fes would not have been as nice without the stay in this magnificent riad. It is situated near Place R'Cif. We... More

We had no idea when we booked Dar Mia exactly what awaited us upon our arrival. We were expecting a clean and well-situated pied-à-terre in the medina and nearly fainted when we entered into what is best described as a palatial and lovingly restored traditional home in the best location in Fes. I am not one to be overly effusive... More

Following a very wonderful trip in the Sahara desert, not so far indeed, you came and had a rest in my riad and spent a nice time in Fes. You could realize that our accommodation offer - though strictly traditional in its design - is suitable for all foreigners, whatever country they come from( Islamic countries, Americas, Europa, Australia, Asia...

We've found this little oasis by recommendation of a friend. We stayed a full week in this lovely Dar (dar=house) in the center of the Medina. The first time the housekeeper, Zackariyae will come to Place R'Sif and pick you up, otherwise you'll never find it! Dar Mia has 4 very nice rooms, and we used 3 of them. Actually... More

Dar Mia is, simply put, a special place to stay and relax within the old walled city of Fes. The owners have carefully renovated an old town house nestled on a tiny alley that rises up four stories around a central court stunningly decorated with tiles, plasterwork and exquisitely carved cedar. Everything is comfortable, from the living room with its... More

Travelling with four kids, this Dar Mia provides a excellent, well equipped place to stay during you visit to the old city of Fes and its incredible souks in the Medina. Close to Place R’Cif and just around the corner of the Mosque R’Cif, the local souk is just 100 m away. The Dar is beautifully renovated. The rooms are... More

We were met at a designated point by Zahariyae who is the house manager at Dar Mia and quickly guided "sans" luggage via the maze of alleyways that are part of the Fez al Bali to a door that beckoned us beyond the turmoil. "Jawdroppingly beautiful" - this Dar is the most magnificent renovation - every detail draws your eye... More

Extremely well situated riad, just next to R'Cif which means easy access to the medina upon arrival and to move around and at the same time in the middle of the medina making it great for walking around. (but the streets surrounding the riad are very quiet making it an excellent place to rest). We went for the Sacred Music... More
