We truly felt like we were staying in a palace at Dar Bensouda! The rooms were large and spacious, bathrooms wonderful. The rooftop is a fantastic place to relax day or night. We enjoyed exploring the property with its beautifully carved doors, grand archways and palm blowing over the pool. This was our favorite and most beautiful riad we stayed... More

We had a great time staying at this beautiful riad and the staff were wonderful and very eager to please. The room and bathroom were spacious, clean, and very pretty, It is well situated in the medina, close to the sights yet in a nice quiet section so we felt like we were getting away from it all upon returning...

The staff is phenomenal! The bellhops/servers are very kind. The decor is superb. The rooms are decorated in an exquisite Moroccan minimalism.The rooftop has a fabulous view and room for lounging, dining or an outdoor massage. The courtyard has a neat distressed look to the tiles, intentionally left that way. I loved it! A breath of fresh air from the... More

Dar Bensouda was by far the most beautiful hotel we stayed in during our one month trip to Morocco. It feels like you are staying in a luxurious palace - exactly what you hope for when you travel to Morocco. The architecture and decor is absolutely stunning. As soon as you enter the doors you feel like you've stepped back... More

A paradise in the center of the Medina in Fes, an oasis of peace and quiet, exquisite rooms and breakfast, superbly decorated and renovated read, great atmosphere and service, nice terrace, same owner has 2 more riads and a restaurant and cultural café in Marrakesh all even so well renovated. A must see and stay!

Outstanding service from a wonderful staff. The riad is beautifully renovated and very comfortable. Every attention to detail has been made and the food is the best we have eaten in Morocco. Onward travel,tickets, guide to the medina all efficiently organised. Stay here for hassle free fun in Fes.

we cannot recommend this riad enough, the rooms are large, air conditioned, beautifully decorated and looked after. The pool is fantastic after a morning walking through he medina! The food has been the best we've tasted in Morocco! However the best thing about this riad is the exceptionally accomodating staff. They have helped with everything we have needed and more... More

I could go on and on about how amazing this place is. The building itself, WOW! I think that almost everyone that has reviewed this place would agree that it's a gem. I want to focus on the staff though, because they were the highlight of our ENTIRE stay in Morocco. Such lovely people! I'm amazed that even during Ramadan,... More

Dar Bensouda is located in the heart of the Medina and is stylishly decorated. The Riad was great, we had a fantastic time when we stayed there. Dar Bensouda's staff were exceptionally friendly, whether it was helping us with luggage, finding our way around, getting to the bus or train station, and arranging for us to get a personal guide...

I can't recommend this place highly enough. Beautiful, beautiful restored 17th C building and rooms (had a standard room), amazing restaurant, and most of all, a very gracious, kind and super thoughtful and helpful staff. We would give this place 10 stars if possible, we enjoyed it so much.
