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.

Truly unbelievable Riad/Dar. It was beyond gorgeous, and the staff was amazing. My husband and I did not want to leave. There were times we did not want to leave the guest house because of how relaxing and beautiful it was. We spend a lot of time on the roof relaxing and exploring the many beautiful nooks and crannies of... More

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
