From the very easy access, as the Riad is located right next to a door to the medina (Bab Ziyat) to the extremely helpful staff, this was an excellent Riad experience. Get a real feel of Fez and Morocco from this charming home. Would definitely go back and recommend it to all. Also, the cook Fatima was brilliant. We wish... More

The service is simply fantastic: there are three guys in charges taking rounds and whoever is around is very helpful and super... More

Riad Al Badia was a highlight in our trip to Morocco. Fes medina is a very difficult place to navigate, and this Riad is easy to access from the main road, and is close to the historic area. Service is great, Omar is very friendly and took care of every detail during our stay. Rooms have real Moroccan mosaic walls... More

After a super long journey, this was the perfect riad to start our Moroccan trip. From the outside, it's a simple and modest door, but inside it's like a mini reserve with beautiful ceramic walls, a courtyard and a parrot that will sing any song you can whistle. We were warmly greeted by the staff and given tea and biscuits... More

On my third visit to Fes opted to try this reasonably priced riad over my previous ‘posher’ choice of the beautiful Palais Amani. Very ornate and stunning courtyard in typical Fes style. Food was fantastic. Rooms are very large, quirky and comfortable though in my opinion could benefit from a bit of an update and slight simplification in the fabric... More

Who would imagine a piece of paradise behind an unprepossessing door in an alleyway. The riad is spacious and luxurious with mosaic throughout and a verdant courtyard. Apart from Poulet the riad bird the space is silent and peaceful. We stayed in the bedroom on the ground floor with its decorated high ceiling and gorgeous features. The bathroom is huge... More

Beautiful building with gorgeous mosaic, and tile decor is very impressive. The courtyard with lots of greens is lovely and relaxing. I stayed for 2 nights in a 2 level suite, and my friends stayed in a large suite. Rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. It has a parking space across the street, which was very convenient for us. The... More

My wife and I have just left from a 3 night stay at the Al Bartal Riad and had a wonderful time. The staff at the Riad were extremely friendly and helpful, especially Omar. We ate only one night in at the Riad but can I say the food was delicious. The set menu was 200 dirham each. The Riad... More

My wife and I had an absolutely amazing stay at Riad Al Bartal. Over two weeks in the country, we spent at nights at many Trip Advisor top-rated Riads throughout Morocco. This Riad was undoubtedly the best. The actual building itself is beautiful and lovingly restored. The guest rooms themselves are extremely comfortable and home-like. The overall ambiance of the...
