Bensouda is truly an oasis of order and serenity in the midst of the chaos that typifies the Medina. The pool and restaurant area is fantastic, the rooftop lounge area has majestic views across the city, the rooms are spacious and the staff are so attentive and helpful - including giving an informative tour of the premises upon arrival.

Dar Bensouda was fabulous and I loved every moment of my stay. In the heart of the medina so it is helpful to call the Riad and make sure somebody is there to meet you from the airport taxi. Riad staff are always there to help with luggage and help you find your way! Stylishly refurbished, perfumed oils and immaculate... More

We spent a week at the riad in May with a group of artists and had a really wonderful stay. The staff are outstanding - so kind and helpful. We ate nearly all our meals there and everything was provided with attention to detail and presentation. The rooms are very comfortable with all mod cons and there are different areas... More

I recently spent a magical week in this hotel, where a group of us under the tutelage of Colin Watson undertook to learn and paint the local sights, as well as a protrait of a Moroccan Girl in her finery. the Riad couldn't have been more wonderful, they were happy to help us in anyway, the staff just the best....

I arranged to have exclusive use of the riad for 7 days and nights to take a painting and drawing course. Could not have been better. A real jewel of Fez. Staff were excellent, courtious, efficient, nothing was a bother. Staying full board for the week the food was superb. We had a magical, unforgetable week at Dar Bensouda. Would... More

Agree with others- a bit hard to find but definitely worthwhile. Once inside the medina, follow signs to the Ruined Garden restaurant- you will then see signs for the riad. I suggest contacting the riad in advance if you are driving as there is underground parking available and then a guide can meet you to take you to the riad.... More

We traveled Morocco for two-weeks in various cities and Dar Bensouda was #1. Not going to lie it's a trek to get here, however, if you're lost or need assistance with your luggage if you call the Riad they staff will come to get you and help with your luggage. After a day you will figure out how to get... More

As per many of the riads within the medina, hard to find. But inside you feel like in the best location ever. Wonderful breakfast and delicious lunch or dinner by the pool. Detailed interiors, spacious rooms and friendly and helpful staff.

I have just come back from here and it was the best hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. After leaving the Riad rcif nearby because of the unbelievably poor service, I was so relieved to stay here. The manager here, Said, was an absolute delight. He spoke perfect English, and nothing was too much trouble for... More

One of the best places we've stayed anywhere in the world. Majestic but warm. The rooms are enormous and immaculate; traditional decor with classy modern upgrades. Lots of well-appointed common space and exceptional service. Great location in the heart of the medina and excellent value for the price. The only downside (common to most riads, it seems) is that the... More
