It was so nice to stay somewhere other than an American chain hotel! We enjoyed the Riad experience as well as location in the medina. The rooms were spacious and loved the rooftop terrace for drinks and breakfast! The view and the colorful flowers were both stunning. We also had one very good dinner at the Riad so I would... More

We picked this Riad in the medina because our top choices (riad laaroussa among them) were fully booked because we were visiting during the Fes sacred music festival. This was one of the few riads rated among the top 20 on tripadvisor that seemed spacious and not decorated overbearingly. We picked a junior suite since they had a 4 day... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful hotel, mysteriously tucked away behind a wall in the medina. Our room, Mesariah (sp.?) 2 was huge, with a separate living room and small sitting room, plus access to a rooftop terrace. We loved it, but note that it's about 30 steps up to the room and another 20 or so to... More

No doubt when you step inside of the hotel itself it takes him to a new place then the streets you are walking through to get to the hotel. When got there everyone was very nice they give you a towel to wash your face, traditional Moroccan tea and cookies. When we got to our room it was pleasant but... More

Dear Guest , Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback following your recent stay at PALAIS AMANI. You should notice that we are a small Luxury Riad ( 15 Rooms), so, to preserve the authenticity, we prefer to serve a traditional Breakfast in the morning. (we had never made buffet). This is the first time, we receive... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at Palais Amani...amazing that this oasis is in the medina. Once the doors of the inn open, your are transported into an oasis. The owners made a point of introducing themselves and welcoming us to the inn, which we really appreciated. The room was lovely with gorgeous linens and a separate sitting area apart from... More

You will see other people rave about the charm, beauty and location of this boutique hotel. I agree with all of it. However it may be more helpful if I manage your expectations about other aspects. It does not have a pool - you need to decide that this is not an issue for you. We were a family. The... More

Thank-you for such a wonderful experience, staff and service are superb, local right at the entrance to the Medina, and detail and composition of this Riad - now a modern hotel is truly worth experiencing.

Palais Amani is located in the heart of the medina. The rooms are good size, however, you must be careful which room you have. We had a suite, but it was located on two floors. The first floor was the full bath (which was also the first floor of the riad and had no privacy) with a sofa. The shower... More

Palais Amani shines a fascinating light on to the experience of living in the medina of Fes. We stayed for several nights and marveled at the transition from the bustling and crowded streets of the city to the protected and peaceful gardens of Palais Amani. The decor was beautiful and the service was excellent. We would highly recommend it.

The Palais Amani is a real palace. 12 en-suite bedrooms clustered around a really large riad garden. The corridors are wide and there is even a lift to get to the second floor and up to the roof. On the roof is the bar that holds a Happy Hour each day. Although on an old site it was rebuilt in... More
