Not only was it a great looking, the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. There are two rooftop terraces where we... More

Beautifull riad in the middle of the medina in Fez! The french family is really friendly and helpful with anything. Rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a terrace were you can relax with delicious minttea and biscuits after a day of walking in de medina. A great stay!!!

We absolutely loved our stay at Dar el Bali! The French host family was amazing and helpful, the rooms were very comfortable, and the roof patios were amazing to spend some time at sunrise and sunset! My favorite part of our trip to Morocco was listening to the call to prayer at sunset from the patio at Dar el Bali... More

There's really not much to say apart from: when in Fes, stay at this place! Cathie, Elodie and Michel even helped us out with some advise on where to stay in the... More

The breakfast was lavish and delicious and they were kind to let us hang out in the afternoon after we had checked out of our room. The Dar is a lovely home, well-maintained and beautifully furnished in traditional Moroccan style and a perfect location within the... More
