We were very happy to choose dar bensouda as our stay in fes. The service was great and people are very sweet! Most of all, the architecture of this riad is just amazing. You can experience the stay in 400 years old beautiful structure - yet the room is simply modern and practical. Also, the dinner course at this riad... More

Amazing Riad which has been beautifully restored... wow! Excellent location just off the main street and although difficult to find for the first time one call to the staff and they came and collected us. The Riad is actually well signposted once you know where to look! Junior suite was great with seperate sitting room and upstairs bathroom. Fantastic panoramic... More

Eventhough it's really hard to find the way to this Riad, I really recommend all of you who visit Fes! (Don't worry. Bensouda staffs will bring you to the Riad safely.)The staffs are always ready to help you whenever you need, they are really kind and courteous. I was really moved by their good service. The Riad is so big... More

We had a fantastic stay at Dar Bensouda. It has the most beautiful courtyard and we found it very well located in the medina. The staff were very helpful and arranged for someone to meet our taxi and guide us to the riad (we would definitely recommend this as it'd be very difficult to find on your own for the... More

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
