That is a good way to stay in a real Riad. The traditional architeture with the needs of a modern life. Comfortable, clean, good breakfast and staff very kind! I really recommend to everyone that visit Fez

We found this perfectly renovated Riad as our top stay in Morocco. Service is top notch, the place itself is more beautiful and better kept than many museum Riads in the Fez medina. We had dinner there as well, the Moroccan veggies were amazing, far more sophisticated than the name would suggest.

We arrived about noon, and thought we would just our luggage and go out to the medina. But without making a fuss, we were checked into our room and given tea and cookies while we sat and completed our paper work in the courtyard. The manager walked us all around all the levels of the riad, which was good because... More

We stayed 3 nights and loved the place. The architecture is fantastic, the room was very clean and comfortable with lovely towels and plenty of hot water. All the staff were very courteous and helpful. The roof terrace view of Fes is also great.

We spent one day in the hotel and were very satisfied with the gentle service. The service people are very friendly and always at your side when you need them. We also got a few additional hours to keep our room after check-out time. It was hard to leave finally. Well recommended place to stay

Amazing Moroccan architecture of Dar Bensouda was the first thing that made me realize I chose the right place to stay and over the two nights I stayed there, I totally felt in love with this riad. Saeed, the manager, gave me a warm welcome with the best Moroccan tea followed by a tour of the lovey building and guided... More

Stunningly beautiful 17th century riad on a quiet lane in the Fes medina, with welcoming and cosy atmosphere. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful. What other reviewers have already written is 100% true, including the bit about the unbelievable bedroom ceilings height. And rather than going out for dinner to one or the other over-rated restaurants in town, you... More

This Riad was a magical conclusion to our five day tour of Morocco. As with much of the country, things look run down on the outside but turn out to be simply majestic on the inside. There's no way not to have a wonderful experience here. The staff was first class and incredibly friendly. They arranged dinner reservations, allowed us... More

The hotel is right inside the medina but amazingly quiet with a great view of the city. It was absolutely beautiful with a mix of tastefully restored old architecture and modern touches (like the bathrooms). We stayed in two different rooms, one in the main building and the other was in the newer section. Both were fantastic with the highest... More
