This is a gem. All the hotel is decorated in morrocan style, full of art everywhere. Our room had a nice balcony and great view of the old Medina. The bed and linens are something!! Location is also nice since you are in one of the gates of the old city. The staff is really friendly specially Naima, that aranged... More

It's sad that feedback acknowledged in May 2014 on Tripadvisor on the poor standards of service that AMAL EL ARFAOUI GUEST RELATIONS MANAGER says are being addressed are still an issue. Stayed here four nights and met three helpful staff members (two in Piano bar and one at concierge) all others were at best a little incompetent, and others bordering... More

We just returned from Morocco and this hotel is, like Fez, an incredible experience. The views from the rooms are postcard picture perfect. The location is right by the Medina. The hotel staff arranged our guide for the Medina, which is a must. The guide, Idris, was perfect - fascinating and helpful and did not push anything on us. Food... More

I warmly recommend this hotel if you want to visit Fès. The service is very Good, the rooms are very well decorated, the pool is perfect and the view of the medina is great. If you want to relax go to their very nice spa.

I have stayed at this property at least 7 times, and each time I kick myself that I have come back--but there is just something incredible about the view over the pool and gardens overlooking the old medina of Fez. The staff was greatly improved since my last visit 5 years ago--and as that has been my previous number one... More

This hotel was probably once Grand, but its glory days are far behind it! Don't be fooled by the pictures on line, they do not represent it accurately and the devil is in the details. We were upgraded to a suite, probably because we were practically the only customers. It was kind of creepy, sections of the hotel were deserted... More

The property is elegant--inside and out, with a lovely garden. Terrific views out over the Fes Medina. The food in the European dining room (the only one we tried) was excellent as was room service. However, the best part of the hotel is the gracious and helpful staff, especially the concierge staff. The chief concierge went above and beyond the... More

We had a standard room, which was fine for our purposes, as we didn't spend a lot of time in it. We especially enjoyed breakfast overlooking the beautiful gardens, pool and the Medina. This property has a terrace/bar also overlooking the Medina, which is a great spot to unwind after a long day. But after three nights, the property felt... More

While certainly needs some renovation specially in the rooms, this hotel is a very good choice for Fes-el-Bali given its great location. The swimming pool and restaurant are very nice. Check in was excellent and most staff very friendly. The hotel has a good group of guides to show you around (definitively needed if you are going for one day... More
