We got dropped off of the street off of Bab el Jadid by our tour guide. But the Riad had sent someone to take us to the Riad through the car free alley ways of the old medina of Fez. All the while we were wondering where and how this is going to end up. They open the door and... More

Where to start?? The riad, a beautiful example of Moroccan culture and style is situated just inside the medina so you won't get lost finding it if you are driving in. Juliette, our Aussie hostess, made us feel at home straight away by upgrading us not once but twice - very special. Her staff, Said and Zenab, made sure all... More

We spent four nights in Fes and were so happy to have spent them here. We were in Room Sarah, which is the smallest room in the Riad. The room was small, as to be expected, but not TOO small. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning unit worked well, which was very necessary! My only complaint was that... More

Our room was large and very nicely decorated. We had excellent breakfast on the roof every day with a great view. Service was impeccable and the hosts were very helpful and attentive. The owner Juliette speaks English which was very helpful. The only reserve we had was that the room was a bit dark with did not have enough light,... More

I stayed at the Dar Guennoun for three nights and had a nice experience. I had arranged with the owner, Juliet (an Australian, who has been in Morocco for almost three decades), to have a taxi meet my train from Marrakech (because, as with many riads, directions are at best complicated). Even though my train was over three hours late... More

This property is fantastic! Abdul and Juliette and their staff went out of their way to accommodate us when we were having difficulty between locations. Their dedication to their clients is unsurpassed! The food was wonderful, the Riad is clean and tastefully decorated, the staff is wonderful and they truly are dedicated to their Riad. I cannot say enough and... More

We spent 5 nights here in May, and thoroughly enjoyed the riad and the stay. The decor is excellent and very colourful (true of very many riads, in Fez and other Moroccan cities), and Juliet and Abdul had done a fine and imaginative job of the renovation. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the cuisine (on the large... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. The riad itself is conveniently located a 10 minute walk to Bab el Recif, (the Recif Gate,) one of the principal entrances to the Souk. You can also catch a petite cab to the Blue Gate for 10 dirham ($1 and change.) The house itself is beautiful and worth a... More

If you choose this riad, you will be happy with your choice. I stayed two nights here with three friends and everything was perfect. It is a old house, wich is restored in every detail. The room was clean, the shower was hot and the neighborhood was quiet. I booked the smallest room, but it was absolutely enough for two... More

Great riad to stay if you want to be in the old town but don't really want to be in the center of the old town. We took a cab to the center of the old town for about 10dhr. Excellent breakfast on the roof terrace which offers a terrific view over town in all time of the day. We... More
