"Now you are in your family", these are the most repeated words sayed by Kacem and his staff in this beautiful Riad located on the edge of the medina. And this is absolutely true! Everyone was so kind, the room was very comfortable, the view from the roof of the Riad beautiful and the dinner excellent (my wife could also... More

The manager just can't do enough for his guests - I don't think he sleeps! In addition to the personalized service, the rooms and courtyard are simply beautiful. Room are a bit dark but that is true of most riads since there are no outdoor windows.

Riad Ahlam is well located in the Medina, walking distance to the souks. The view from the roof was breathtaking and captured a birds eye view of the whole Medina. Looked forward to the yummy daily breakfast. Room was spacious and clean, though a little dim. To top off our wonderful Fes experience, Kacem the Riad manager and other staff... More

Could not have been a better experience for our first night in Morocco. Many advantages to this place. First was the hospitality. After reading reviews of indifferent or unhelpful staff at many Moroccan hotels and riads, I was a bit apprehensive, . but the manager and staff at Riad Ahlam were wonderfully gracious and immediately set us at ease in...

This was was my first riad experience, and as I write this review I've been to two riads, so my experience with this type of accommodation is limited. This riad is quite close to the Fez medina. You can see the medina from the roof, and it's an easy 100 yard walk from the riad to the medina. The walk... More

We only stayed for one night but felt like valued family returning home. The atmosphere, service and comfort was superb. Thank you to Kacem and his team. Rooms are beautifully finished and very comfortable. We had more than enough room. It is only a very short walk to the many wonders of the medina and advice is readily available -... More

Spent four nights at this Riad the beginning of March on our first trip to Morocco. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful, from providing instructions on getting a petit taxi from the train station, to arranging a day trip to Volubilis, to getting us back to the train station on our return trip (thank you again Cacim! ). I don't... More

A wonderful experience from start to finish was had at the Riad Ahlam. Kacem the manager was absolutely brilliant - his attention to detail is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble and he saved us from a slightly dodgy arrangement we had made for an early morning run to the airport we had made with the driver of a little...

We mainly chose Riad Ahlam for its location, but once we entered the riad I felt that I didn't want to get out! Very charming and cozy, friendly staff, clean and very good service. It is close to the old souk and many other attractions. Breakfast was amazing. I surely recommend it.
