This is a beautiful Riad with a staff that helps in many ways. Especially Junior Nsumlu and Said - the manager. These guys went out of their way to be helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the pool area relaxing and the meal we had at the hotel was excellent. We (a group of 6) would all return if... More

Dar Bensouda is a stunningly restored architectural building. It's like living in a palace. Yet the scale of the riad is not overwhelming. There are various courtyards, private seating areas, and a rooftop deck for relaxing. The meals that they served (breakfast + dinner) were the best food we had during our 12 days in Morocco. The service was impeccable.... More

Pros: The Riad was literally one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in my life (and I am usually the one choosing the gorgeous luxury hotels throughout the world). 5 Star service. Anything I needed or asked for they were able to give without any hesitation. Even if I didn't ask, they asked me. The rooftop -... More

Probably the most amazing places I have ever been after travelling pretty much everywhere in the world!!! The Riad is astonishing, full of character and super friendly! Beautiful rooms, full wifi, swimming pool and a massive terrace to enjoy the beautiful view of the Medina and surroundings! The restaurant is extremely pleasant and you cannot go wrong with the service... More

First Impression Looks like any other building from the outside other than a nice door. But once inside you will get blown away. It's an old medresa and has kept all it's original features, the carvings, the tiles, the doors. The rooms were gorgeous especially if you get the suit you even have your own private courtyard! Parting Impression On... More

We had a lovely stay at Dar Bensouda. Beautiful riad with such character and a wonderful roofdeck that will make you feel like you're on a beach holiday in the middle of the medina. Staff is very attentive, decor is fantastic. This was one of the last riads on our 2 week trip through Morocco, so we stayed in many... More

Beautiful property with extremely helpful service. Visiting Fez can be challenging because the Medina is really confusing. We were very happy we booked this riad because they went above and beyond by doing things like walking us to our restaurant and out of the medina after our stay to a car rental that they arranged. The service made a huge... More

Me and my partner had a fantastic introduction to morocco and were made to feel very comfortable and welcome. After a fairly late flight into Fez (8pm arrival) the hotel's taxi driver Muhammed was waiting for us. He was very friendly and gave us a few tips on our 20 minute drive to the Riad. Hamid was waiting at the... More
