Iv visited Morocco over 15 times and can safely say this is one of the best hotels Iv stayed at. Juliet the owner could not have been more accommodating and helpful not to mention the beautiful staff. With a vast hearty breakfast and an array of delicious traditional dinners this makes the perfect getaway. Iv had some of the best... 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!

not a single bad word to be uttered about this place. the location is perfect, in the heart of the old town and a quick 2 minute walk to the Medina as well as restaurants, pharmacies, cafes, taxis.etc the building itself is an original 17th century Moroccan riad with beautiful tile work and windows throughout (it does mean some steep...

Excellent! Best riad in town! Phenomenal service, decor, and location. Juliet and Abdul are incredibly genuine and hospitable. Their family emphasis is the best part of staying. No complaints whatsoever!

A special time spent at Riad dar Guennoun. The location in the old town was the perfect place to explore Fes. The room we had was beautifully kept and we felt there had been so much attention to detail to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

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.

I have never had such a nice stay in Morocco (considering I go almost every year). The Riad is a beautiful hidden treasure in the medina of Fes, it is hard to imagine this considering the outside of the house. Julliet and her staff showed us hospitality that we have never experiences in Morocco before. They are so friendly and... More

My five night stay at this Riad was more than I ever expected. Yes, the Riad is a beautiful example of Moroccan life. Yes, Saida and Zenib keep the Riad meticulous, Said and Hamid watch over everything at night and Driss provided me assistance with navigating cobblestones when driving me from place to place. However, all kudos go to Juliet.... More

Very welcoming, friendly and helpful staff in a beautifully restored riad in the Medina in Old Fez. Nothing was too much for Juliette and her colleagues. We stayed 5 nights sandwiched around a trip to Meknes (recommended) and ate a very good breakfast on the roof terrace every morning while surveying the old Medina roof-tops. The rooms are decorated with... More
