Well, it's hot and wet in Fes this time of year. I stayed here and loved it: the pastilla, the Laurents, everything. I loved the turn-down service, and the tea in the afternoon. Like Paul said: "are you going to Fes".?

SUMMARY: I really really pleased that I had the experience of staying at Fez Aya, but it is not for the faint of heart. Before you decide to do this, you should be prepared for authentic -- with all the pros and cons that entails. DETAIL: My goal for lodging in Fes was an affordable place inside the medina walls...

We stayed here for two nights and its was ok but not as great as some of the reviews suggest. The rooms are basic but still comfortable. The breakfast was bread and jam. Faoud was helpful. The location is really good as it is right round the corner from one of the main souk roads. The main problem is that... More

It is a family home down a narrow winding street in one of the oldests parts of the Medina so a bit hard to find. The man who appears to run it with his wife provides a map and good directions on arrival. Very friendly. Feels like a family home. Great "continental" breakfast. Great value!

Once you find it, ducking through a cool, quiet little alleyway, Fez Aya is a wonderful place to stay in the Fez Medina. Faoud and Fadwa, the owners, go out of their way to be kind and helpful. Their housekeeper maintains the rooms in perfect cleanliness. Two small issues: My room on the upper floor shared a back wall with... More

I stayed here in June 2012 and still remember the great experience. The rooms were great, the food better and the atmosphere felt extremely authentically Moroccan. The rooftop lounge area was an added bonus with a killer view of the old city. Despite all these positive aspects, the hosts were the best part as they were always eager to give... More

For 300dh per night in the centre of Fez medina, we were very happy with our stay here. We stayed for 3 nights, and found to be a great location away from main Talaa in a quiet alleyway but not too far away to get to everywhere you want in the medina. Finding the place is a bit of a... More

We booked this maison after reading some of these excellent reviews but the reality does not match up. Positive points: - the bed was firm but we found it comfortable - there was abundance of hot water - the host lady was pleasant enough and smiled each time she opened the door for us Negative points: - the riad in...

We came in from the Sahara and our driver called the owner to come out to the closest entrance to greet us. I think that you have next to no chance of finding this place without someone coming out and walking you to the door - it involves some walking in narrow passages and stooping over. It is run by...

As we drove into Fez, it was raining and we had a very limited map. I had previous done a search for Fez hotels, looking for the least expensive option. We drove around looking for the hotel, but found ourselves completely lost and feeling hopeless. I called the owner of the hotel and he told us to wait where we... More
