My family and I had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at Dar Aquas for the last week of December 2014. The b&b has an excellent location near Rcif, inside the Medina. The rooms were beautifully made, had functional bathrooms, and maintained traditional Moroccan architecture. The meals prepared were excellent and took inspiration from Morroccan cuisine. Overall a great place to... More

Looking around for a guest house in the heart of the medina, I was impressed by the consistently excellent reviews that Dar Aquas had received. I was not disappointed by my choice; this is one of the most comfortable, welcoming and atmospheric places that I have ever stayed. For a very reasonable price we had a lovely room with an... More

Dar Aquas has everything you could possibly want to make you feel welcomed and pampered. Our bedroom was quite spacious with a comfy bed and some real estate for all our clothes, a real plus! But that's not all. we were thankful for the many plugs for all our electronic devices to charge up; fast, responsive wifi in our bedroom... More

This is a fantastic place run by great people. The house (dar) is beautiful with rooms over 2 floors, we stayed on the ground floor, off the main courtyard, and our room had huge cedar doors with carvings. The upper floor rooms, where our friends were, had beautiful plaster design along the full length of the rooms. Breakfast in the... More

We give Dar Aquas our highest recommendation and hope to return again. Very restful and very quiet. Wonderful. Brian and Mary, the owners, took great care in introducing my son and me to Fez by highlighting a map and drawing added small maps when answering our navigation questions. It seems like a small gesture at the time, but it was... More

This Dar is absolutely stunning, something you can't expect by checking out the website. But wow! We had one of the rooms downstairs. The huge wooden doors are so impressive! And great plus: it is perfectly quiet so got a few nights of great sleep. The breakfast were also so great! For once we got more than the normal baguette... More

Hidden behind a small door down a tiny lane is a gem that will delight your senses. Brian and Mary are wonderful hosts who will give you the their time to ensure your trip is worthwhile. After a hearty breakfast you will be ready to tackle the maze of the medina.

Mary and Brian are superb hosts. Brian greets you at the Bab and makes you immediately feel in control of Fes' Souqs and environs. Their Riad is beautifully located and is extremely quiet and well-appointed. Mary's dinners are delicious and are the equal to most of the restaurants in the Souqs. Their wines are well-priced. The two are also great... More

It is memorable to stay in such a lovely historical place. The hosts are always here to make you feel welcoming and give you helpful tips to explore the medina. The lemon tea and breakfast served here tasted really good. The best place i have stayed in Morocco!

Dar Aquas is absolutely beautiful! We visited museums all across Morocco displaying how former royalty lived. I felt that Dar Aquas was equal to how they lived. Brian and Mary were great hosts. Thank you both.
