A lovely little hotel located at the edge of Fez's medina, with a stunning courtyard. It's far quieter than the central area. Staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful. Definitely a hotel that stands out from others I've stayed in. Bring along the hotel map to show to cab drivers so they can find it.

From the moment we arrived at Al Bartal and were greeted with a lovely tea and cookies, everything was near perfect. The place is beautiful and quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location (at the edge of the medina for easy travel outside or in) is great and easily accessible. When we needed anything at all, they... More

It was like walking into the Garden of Eden. Instantly we felt at ease and serene. Expertly designed and decorated. The courtyard is breathtaking. We stayed in the Nejjarine Suite it was the most beautiful room I have ever stayed in (I'm a seasoned traveler). Incredible for any price but unbelievable for 110 euros. Truly. Service was impeccable. We had... More

Huge rooms - so big they are almost creepy. There are a lot of stairs unless you are staying in one of the downstairs suites, We were there in winter so it all felt a little bit cold. In summer it would be brilliant because it would stay so cool. Really helpful staff - fantastic English with an American accent... More

I booked this riad based on feedback found in Trip advisor. For one night during weekend. And was not disappointed. It's recommended to arrange a pickup because it's hard to find. Then to walk from the riad to the city center Zouk takes a bit of time through a maze of small streets almost guaranteed to get you lost. The... More

This riad is a very nice building in a good location. The rooms are authentical as well as the overall feeling. We had breakfast and dinners there which was also very tasteful. Staff is friendly and helpful. The only objection we had is that rooms have a strange smell.

A very pleasant stay at end of January. From the moment we were greeted at the train station, to the moment we were hailed a cab to leave three days later, we wanted for nothing. Entering the Al Bartal through a very unassuming door only heightens the surprise of the beautiful interior that greets you beyond the few internal steps.... More

We have spent four nights at the Riad on New Years Eve 2012-13. It is absolutely quiet and relaxing, with a few rooms and suites and high level services. The atmosphere is very tipical and somehow magic. We had two excellent dinners and wonderful breakfasts. The staff has been extremely gentle and ready to satisfy guests' requests (eg. as the... More

Riad Al Bartal is a flat-out fabulous place to stay. First, the courtyard is one of the most gorgeous spaces we saw anywhere in Morocco. You get the feeling that Peter Lorre could pop out from behind a potted plant at any moment! A talking bird ("Bartal" in Arabic) adds a final touch to the exotic ambiance. Our room must... More

We knew that food was good in Fez but did not expect such amazing feasts, the food was varied and beautifully served by efficient and friendly staff. We did think that the greenery and some of the decor could do with some refreshing. Our room was a mezzanine up very steep stairs which was not ideal and the small sitting... More
