We had some difficulty with the service at this hotel, especially when we ate in our room. They are not accustomed to this and took forever. After we got our food, we asked for things that were missing such as extra dressing, etc, but by the time they came back we couldn't wait and started eating. There are no elevators... More

This is an outstanding hotel. We arrived after being delayed by a couple of days in Barcelona due to the theft of my wife's handbag on the way to the airport. The bag had both our passports and cash inside. The staff at the hotel were very understanding of our terrible situation and when we did arrive with our emergency... More

This place is serene and makes one feel like royalty, surrounded by art in every corner. Excellent service! We even got a double upgrade and some culinary gifts along the way! I highly recommend it, as it is walking distance to the Medina and feels like an oasis at the end of a busy day. I would recommend staying here... More

We stayed at Palais Faraj for three nights in June 2015. This is a very special place with great service and good food close to the Medina of Fes. It has spectacular views. As expected for a converted/ repurposed older structure, the room configurations are varied, but well appointed. It has a peaceful central courtyard, nice pool and several relaxing... More

Palais Faraj made our visit to Fes unforgettable. The hotel has a characteristic charm about it, a soul you don't often find on holiday, not even in the leading hotels of the world. Somehow the architect and designer have been able to marry tradition with modernity and originality, as the hotel offers all the luxury and technology available while keeping... More

As magical as the old city is, it was not easy leaving the luxury and restfulness of this magnificent hotel perfectly located high above the old city. The spa, the restaurant, the view, the superbly appointed rooms all add up to a wonderful stay. The old city itself is only minutes away by taxi, even though it seems so far... More

My friend and I had a few extra hours in Fes and after wandering through the medina for 24 hours we were ready to get clean. The spa package of hammam, massage and pedicure seemed right for us. It was 3 hours of luxury. With soft robes, professional staff, dim lighting and serene atmosphere. The pedicure and manicure was unlike... More

Just had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at the Palais Faraj in Fez, Morocco. Once owned by a wealthy family, the estate was converted to a spectacular hotel. This is an authentic Moroccan dwelling with magnificent walls, floors and ceilings. Everywhere you look is a new adventure. Our room was a spacious apartment-like layout with large sitting room, bedroom,... More

Best hamman ever. I did not stay here I just had a 4 hour hammam. The harmam was spectacular a marble room with low lights and softy hissing steam. The marble was heated and the whole experience was not to hot and stuffy. My hands and feet were swollen with jet lag and I felt awful prior to the hammem.... More
