Very nice and helpful staff. Location in the medina, close to its border, so it's easier to find. Breakfast somewhat poor by European standards (no sausages, eggs, or omelette). No elevator, just narrow stairs (this might be difficult for the people who are not physicaly fit...), but this is because the building is not modern!

The Riad was excellent and the bedrooms large and comfortable (we had the Ceder Suite which we loved). The breakfast is a nice mix of European and Moroccan food and the evening meals are really good. Said was an excellent host! He arranged taxis to and from the airport for us and even arranged a taxi for our day trip... More

This Riad is really nice but a couple of things happened which left us very unimpressed. I contacted the owner of the Riad before arriving in Fes and asked if he could arrange a guide for us. I asked for an official guide, approved by the ministry of tourism who speaks Italian (as the majority of our group were Italians).... More

The place is great and the rooms are very big and very elegant. Really chep compared to how beautifull it is. Sure I'd come back here. Btw not a place if u want to have fun o meet people. Quite in silent and cold situation specially in the evening.

We enjoyed our stay at Riad L'Artiste. It's a typical Moroccan riad with all the woodwork, decor and tiles that comes with it. Our host, Zakariyah and the owner, Said were very helpful and friendly. We ordered things at random times of the day and even had requests for meals they don't usually make and they made it happen. They're... More

We stayed in the Laura Hinde room for ten nights during December. The Riad is beautiful and comfortable and clean. It is on the edge of the medina, in a very quiet location, but also convenient - it is a nice 15 minute walk through the old lanes to the heart of Fes - very cheap taxi ride also easily... More

Friendly service, helpful hints, fantastic breakfast all at a great price. Overall a good place to stay. It is not as luxury as some other riads, but it is tradtional and ticks all the bases and at a perfect price. Our suggestion is try not to get the ground level room. We had the ground level room (the cheapest room)... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the Africainne room. It was a beautiful room, large with a very nice bathroom. The room is very well appointed with attention to detail. It has a very nice atmosphere. The whole riad is super clean and beautiful. It is located in the southern edge of the medina. It has a much quieter feel,... More

Excellent choice. Rooms and the whole maroocan house / Riad - very nice, look like a maroocan fairytale. Very helpfull/friendly staff - owner. Provided a remarkable visit to hamman. Nice rooftop, in good location in medina ( quieter part ).
