This is one of those places that I will always remember as one of the nicest hotels I've ever experienced. When you first walk in, you can't believe that it's hotel because it is so ornate and beautiful. Everything worked flawlessly there. We would spend afternoons on the patio - swimming and relaxing after seeing Fes. I hope to make... More

This gem is perfectly located close to the old town yet away from the noisy quarters. There are some really nice views and stunning old fashioned interior decorations. The patio is relaxing and the hospitality first class. You live part of the history of Fes just being here. What I most loved about this place though is that the food... More

The suite was heaven after spending the previous day riding camels and sleeping in tents (albeit exceptional tents). The rooms were large and filled with all of the elements and details of fine Moroccan architecture. Beautiful carved woodwork covered the rooms. The colors were vibrant and tasteful. The bathroom was large and bright with good lighting. The top floor bar... More

WOW. This place is over the top. If you are looking for world class luxury in the middle of Morocco, look no further. My family of three stayed here two nights and never wanted to leave. Besides the great food (reviewed elsewhere), this place pays attention to details. Our room was a two bedroom suite, THREE bathrooms, two showers, living... More

Our first landing spot in Morocco… this hotel exudes excellence in every way. The staff are outstanding, the food is sublime, the Moroccan hospitality shines here and the setting could not be more welcoming, a truly beautiful Moroccan experience.

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
