This Riad has been restored beautifully. Our room felt wonderfully authentic, the shower was really good and the beds super comfortable. I had dinner on one night and the food was really fresh and tasty. Equally breakfasts were varied and delicious. I love the fresh orange juice! The rooftop terrace has stunning views over Fes, my boyfriend and I spent... More

I was fortunate to spend my birthday at this lovely riad in the Argana Suite, and I really did feel like a princess! The room was unbelievably beautiful and quite large, with tiles all around and a fabulous wood ceiling. The owners were very kind, and when they found out it was my birthday had a rose put in my...

Dar El Bali is an excellent guest house. It is located right in the medina and easy to find once you have your bearings. The rooms are large and well decorated. The best part (I thought) was the two roof top terraces. Both are spacious and have plenty of spaces to sit and relax. The breakfast was good and varied... More

We had a lovely stay at this riad. The riad is very grand and beautifully decorated with tiles, intricate wood and plasterwork. The rooms were also very luxuriously decorated. Our room was the Marrekesh. Beautifuly and tastefully furnished and on the top floor. I saw a previous post which commented about the stairs being steep ( whinger, I thought!) but... More

This was a lovely Riad in the middle of the medina. We stayed there for 2 nights and the hosts were very welcoming and hospitable. We had a meal in the Riad on the second night and it was lovely. The room was big and very quiet with excellent wi-fi access. It was an oasis from the bustle of the... More

A true riad has trees in the courtyard, so this is a dar, but they're working on the trees. Unlike many proprietors, Katrin and Melle, a Belgian couple, live on the premises. Sound really carries in a riad, given the layout, but the kitchen was two doors removed from the courtyard, which helps a lot. The 5:30 call to prayer... More

The riad is conveniently located closely to the main street and the blue gate. The riad itself is gorgeous to the smallest details, the traditional Moroccan beauty has been preserved with a few modern touches. The owners take pride in the riad and in the city. The bedroom was very comfortable and it looked even better in real life than... More
