The Riad and the rooms are nothing short but works of art. The service is top notch. The kitchen creates culinary delights that should not be missed. And if you desire to see and experience the old Medina of Fes, this is an excellent place to do so from.

My only complaint about our stay in this beautiful riad was we couldn't stay for longer. The pictures really don't do it justice at all. It is simply gorgeous.When we arrived in Fes airport, a little harried from a stressful day of travelling in a large extended family group, we were met by a friendly driver and transferred in two...

When we arrived the manager, Faysal, was friendly and helpful immediately. When you walk in, it is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. The walls are mosaics and you can't help but take a million pictures. The dinner is expensive, but delicious and the waiters and staff are all very friendly, although almost none of them spoke any english. The wifi works well,... More

I stayed in this hotel during my Spring Break vacation for a duration of four days. To say that I spent a wonderful time here would be a large understatement. Upon arrival at the airport we were greeted by a very kind man who drove us (as far as possible) to the hotel. Then he introduced us to the young... More

This Riad has an amazing history and we were lucky to be informed about it by the architect owner. Everywhere you look there is extraordinary workmanship and the beauty does not diminish the comfort in any way with comfortable beds, fast wifi, hot showers and excellent food. We ate dinner at this Riad every evening because it was so enjoyable... More

We've just spent 2 nights are Riad Rcif. It was the most spectacular place I've ever stayed in. The Riad itself is a XIV Century house that has been fully renovated over a period of 6 years. The patio is absolutely stunning with it's carved walls and columns and the fountain with it's myriads of mosaics. The second I entered... More

This was the most exotic trip I have ever taken! Hisham is the owner and his staff took excellent care of my family. His mother was the chef and his family and staff treated us like family. The facility was in fabulous shape and restored beautifully. All the transfers were great: we were picked up at the airport and transported... More

We just stayed at Riad Rcif with our 6 year old. What a delight place! The owners and staff were so warm, we felt very much at ease. The Riad is simple lovely, all the hand crafted restorations and details were intact. The food was incredibly fresh and delicious. We were so appreciative of all the extra attention they gave...

Riad Rcif combines the best of authentic medina life with a meticulously restored 14th century mansion. The owner and his staff treat all guests as family friends, personally taking my group to the best carpet and tile merchants in the city. I would highly recommend this beautiful hideaway in the middle of the Fes medina.
