Before we arrived in Fes, we were warned that the medina in Fes is intense. As we were following the signs that the riad put up and navigating through the narrow street of Fes medina and trying to locate Riad Bensouda, we were getting increasingly overwhelmed by the maze-like street and non-stop pestering and almost regret for booking a place...

This was our 1st trip to Fes so whilst we did not have anything to compare it to our expectations were exceeded upon walking into riad dar bensouda. A simply lovely riad with great plunge pool and roof top terrace! The service was great and Said and his staff are very helpful. Breakfast is served by the pool and is... More

A glorious place to stay! Beautiful, warm and friendly. The hospitality of the staff made it feel like home! The chef is amazing; the rooms are spacious, charming and spotless! The pool is lovely, with woven hats and towels waiting for you. There is a hammam on site and one can arrange to have a masseuse come in. Hamid helped... More

The riad is hidden in the dedalus of the most ancient and beatiful inhabited medina of the world. The structure consists of few wonderful and spacious rooms, two courtyards, a pool and an amazing rooftop terrace! The food is goood, I had the best tajine ever in morocco! The staff is kind and efficient. Highly suggested!

Four friends traveling (young women, 20s), first time in Morocco for all, and we could not stop raving about Dar Bensouda. The restaurant (where you eat breakfast every morning) is an absolute oasis with wonderful food. The staff are delightful, friendly, kind, helpful, and totally open to answering our million questions about Fez. Perhaps most strikingly, this riad is BEAUTIFUL.... More

The place is hidden in the heart of the Medina (you will not reach it yourself but they will arrange a pick up on your call). The building was originally the Imam palace and its beauty is still well preserved. Said and his team are working hard to make your stay pleasant and they are available to support at any... More

After walking down many dark alleys and passages of the Fes medina we came to this beautiful, tucked away Riad where we were welcomed by very helpful staff and given mint tea and Moroccan pastries by a turquoise pool in a courtyard. The large, sparsely furnished rooms with fountains and tiles give one a feeling of coolness and calm after... More

A super well-preserved Riad - we were totally astonished when seeing our room (it looks more like a palace to us!). Excellent 5-star service provided by very caring and helpful staff - you'd find this extremely important in the complex medina of Fez. Not to mention the very impressive rooftop and location. Overall, it's just much much exceed our expectation!... More

Dar Bensouda was our first stop in Fes, after spending the night in a hotel near the airport. The beauty of this riad blew us away. It was a great way to kick off our exploration of Morocco. Although not exactly easy to find, if you have a good sense of direction, you should be able to navigate to and... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 4 nights, and enjoyed it very much. We had the second floor room, which was beautiful, you could see the view from the front door to the ground floor, courtyard fountain area, it was a delight. However my wife had arthritis, so she couldn't walk up to the top floor, so we changed... More
