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

My husband and I were staying at the Riad Le Calife, who recommended Palace Faraj for dinner. Prior to our meal, my husband was feeling very tired and weak from not eating very much during the day. Halfway through our meal, he felt very ill and needed to lie down. (I want to be clear that he DID NOT feel... More

The courtyard is gorgeous, the rooms very large with living spaces, terraces and multiple bathrooms. the food was excellent as fine as any restaurant in the area. we loved spending part... More

This is a beautiful hotel with roof top views and restaurants. The staff was very helpful. A wonderful spa (we enjoyed a hamman and message) and outdoor pool. Wonderful breakfasts. And its location is very convenient - just up the road, maybe 50 meters, is an entrance to the ancient medina. Free WiFi.
