I stayed here with my sister for 5 days and it was perfect - very hospitable staff and owners. They catered to our every need and whim, and were very helpful in their advice to us. They weren't pushy at all, just made suggestions to see if we were interested. The breakfasts were great - Juliet is happy for you... More

This is a beautiful Riad in Fez with history leaping out of every room. The room we had was absolutely beautiful with air conditioning as it was cool at night. The furniture is as old as the building and quickly takes you into the past with huge comfortable bed, to a luxurious dining room with cushions everywhere to roof top... More

. . . . .but once you dig in you discover it's all about the money. Very very noisy which I appreciate one must expect in the Medina but not to the extent we suffered. The owner tried to sell us tours and trips, she also said that the trains were too dangerous for Europeans alone on her own so... More

Riad Dar Guennoun is the place to go!! A family business that has put in the work and detail to meeting your needs. Great cooks! Historical! Close to everything you need. They will refer you to guides and pick at airport or train. A home away from home!

Incredibly beautiful building which has been lovingly restored; the rooms we had were excellent, really comfortable. On top of all that, the staff at Riad Dar Guennoun made us feel very welcome, helping with arrangements - they made our stay in this wonderful city so easy... Highly recommend to anyone thinking about visiting Morocco.
