We had a huge 2 room suite for 2 girls which was beautifully furnished although on closer inspection, a little tired. The bathroom had only one small basin which seemed ridiculous for the size of the suite especially when other rooms all had 2 basins. The aircon didn't work and stunk out my room when it did. We had the... More

We stayed at the Palais Ommeyad for 3 days. Fantastic service and beautiful surroundings. Kind of Lawrence of Arabia-esque. The location is perfect. The restaurant has a wonderful tagine and we enjoyed a few Casablancas in our own tented eating area.

This is a beautiful property and I was given a fabulous suite, living room, huge bedroom, and two bathrooms. There were a few negatives though. Aircon was not efficient and the rooms were uncomfortably hot through the night, I hope they get it fixed before summer sets in. The lighting in the rooms was 'atmospheric' but totally inadequate for tasks... More

Breakfast are served very slowly. If you have tours scheduled you should get there at list one hour before, and nobody speaks English at the restaurant. You... More

POSITIVE 1) perfect location because it's right at the entrance of one of the gates of the medina, sharing access and parking with super hotel Palais Jamai. This makes arrival and departure safe and very comfortable. 2) Large rooms with two separated rooms in one , two TV sets, minibar, etc.. 3) Hotel butt clean and luxurious. Bar, pool, garden... More

This Riad is on its way to becoming a favourite in Fez, I have stayed at a few places in Fez in the past and while they were all lovely in their own special way, Palais Ommeyad, has captured the essence of luxury accommodation, service with a sincere smile and helpfulness as well as being able to offer a quality...

This hotel has the facilities of a first-class hotel and has been recently restored (only finished 6 months ago) to a very high standard. Although it has all modern facilities, it has retained Fez charm, especially the windows and the view from the terrace is truly magnificent both across to the town and over to the hills behind the city....
