The look of utter amazement on my wife's face when we arrived at this Riad was enough to tell me we had arrived somewhere special. After walking through the Medina we came upon an unprepossessing door which opened into a beautifully decorated place to stay. Hassan gave us a warm welcome and was on hand throughout our stay to help... More

Has a panoramic view of the old city from its terrasse where sitting is just amazing for meditating. The manager Fayssal and Hassan, the guy who works there makes you feel you're home and the food is typical Moroccan and very delicious. The hygiene are taken care of in a very good way. The rooms are comfortable. The place to... More

Riad Rcif is a truly beautiful building in an extremely interesting location. The surroundings were interesting and the service was excellent, Faysal was in charge of all service matters and looked after us all extremely well. He provided an excellent tour guide for our tour of the Medina of Fez. Faysal became a friend of the family.

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
