This must be one of the most architecturally impressive old buildings ever to house a luxury hotel. Rooms immaculate, high-ceilinged masterpieces. Common areas jaw-droppingly beautiful. Breakfast could be slightly richer, given rest of service and decor. Also, wifi a bit spotty. But this is an experience you're likely never to forget.

HOTEL: We traveled from Marrakesh to Fes by train and the Riad arranged for a driver to pick us up and take us to the nearest gate in the old city / Medina. Though the medina is apparently not a safe place at nighttime for tourists (locals told us it was crime-ridden), this wasn’t an issue given the gorgeous interior... More

Located in the Medina, the Riad Fes is beautifully restored and radiates elegance of a time gone by. Our room, with its high carved cedar ceilings, stayed comfortably cool during the late July heat. The rooftop view of Fes is spectacular at sunset. The staff friendly and helpful.--- The Riad Fes is a unique place I will long remember.

Service here spectacular. Hassan was so helpful it seemed like we had our own waiter. Reception desk very helpful. Be prepared to walk a ways to get to the "lobby"-- either the shortcut through the garden or through part of the fatima. We had rooms in the old side-- very quaint, spacious but a little dark for me. More light... More

I stayed at Riad Fes for the weekend and was impressed as soon as I arrived. The building itself is nothing short of amazing with stunning architecture and design as well as sweeping views of the city from the Riad's rooftop. Further the staff were extremely accommodative and I had no issue at all organising tours, tee times or reservations... More

This hotel was amazing. At first we thought we were lost b/c its in the old town of Fes so not easy to get to. The streets are so small and old, we were a bit concerned. We were glad we hired a local driver from Casablanca so he figured everything out for us. So first advice, do NOT take... More
