We stayed at some of the best hotels in Morocco while traveling with Abercrombie & Kent and this was one of the best overall. The rooms are outstanding with amazing quality and attention to detail from the wood work to tiles. It really was like a palace. The food and service and views are also outstanding. The only problem is... More

We spent 4 nights in this beautiful hotel, rooms were a credit to Moroccan decor. Breakfast was ample, the views of the city of Fes from the roof top restaurant are stunning, though our stay was punctuated with rain, the dark sky added to its beauty. We also had dinner in the restaurant and it was nice. The hotel organised... More

We spent a couple of night in this hotel. Unforgettable experience. Superb view, nice food and very comfortable suite. Not to be lost the hammam. Free parking and free working wifi. Having breakfast or dinner in the roof restaurant is a must.

To visit or to return to Fes should include a stay in this palace. Of course we have some suggestions to improve the controlling and managing this hotel. Upon arrival we have expected a warm welcome with a welcome drink. But the check in was average and normal like in most average hotels and a welcome drink was not offered.... More

With the exception of some rather cold hallways, everything about this hotel was first-class. First and foremost, it is beautiful, with "old-world" charm. The hotel is also well situated with great views of the city below. Very attentive service, fine food and really well-appointed rooms. In all, a wonderful experience and a terrific place to start our vacation in Morocco.

This hotel was incredible from the beginning. Helpful staff, nice rooms and most of all, the panoramic view of the medina is breath-taking. Even if you don't stay in that hotel, having a cup of tea in front of the medina is an experience worth living.

We visited Morocco for a week and spent 2 nights in Fez and were thrilled we picked this property. With spectacular views of the old medina and incredible accommodations it was perfect. The hotel is a reminder of the original home it once was, but has been expanded and remodeled to this wonderful property. The décor is uniquely Moroccan, with... More

A great small hotel in the medina. We had the ambassador suite and it was lovely. Service from the hotel was also outstanding. The manager at the desk took time to ask about our day and which sites we had seen. The restaurant has wonderful food and the service was also great.

My wife and I finished up our 12 day stay in Morocco at this beautiful hotel for three nights. We quickly found out that the hotel was in a location not immediate to any attractions or shopping. Walking was far and not through ideal neighborhoods. Taxi rides would be highly encouraged. We were also very surprised to learn that while... More

Pleasant hotel with great views over the old medina. Open terrace, bar and restaurant offer enjoyable facilities. Other public rooms a bit soul-less. Staff were all pleasant but only one (Mohammed the maitre d' at breakfast and lunch exuded the joy of service). Rooms are individual and quirky with several small roomettes within the bathrooms. Beds are large and very... More
