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

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.

If there is any riad that will bring you back in time and make you feel like a proper Moroccan nobility. A refurbished palace from the 8th century with a magnificent view of the surrounding valleys, absolutely fabulous interior packed with intricate mosaics, wood carvings and delicately carved brass metal lamps throughout. On top of this, amazing service and hamman... More

This place is gorgeous but not worth all the other downsides that come with it. The "free" historical tour by the "university student" was actually a shopping tour that cost us 400 dirham. Besides Hussian (who is awesome, kind, and funny), the rest of the staff were fairly rude with Salim being outright rude. The dinner was our most expensive... More

We had been traveling in Spain and Morocco for a while, but we keep coming back to RIAD RCIF in Fes on 31st Dec. Nothing like going back to a place where you are welcome with so much warmth and friendliness. Our BIG thank you to Hicham, Fatimah, Hassan, Salim & Khadijah. There were 6 of us this time but...

This is a magical place to stay, we arrived very late at night and were skilfully guided through the Medina - the first impression of the riad was with lights out and I felt that I was venturing into an Aladdin's cavern. The accommodation is of high quality, staff excellent and extremely helpful and you are treated like one of... More
