Spent 3 nights at the Riad Norma with some close friends to celebrate our joint 25th wedding anniversaries. We have been to Morocco many times, but not to Fes. The Riad is located on the edge of the Medina, near to one of the gates-this makes navigation much easier, and has great access. Vehicles are not allowed in the Medina... More

We spent a a week in this wonderful Riad run by its delightful French owner Monique Devaux. The rooms are spacious and full of character. The garden and pool provide a wonderful oasis to retreat to after a few hours navigating the medina. The staff are charming and the cooking is fabulous. Highly recommended

The next time I come to Fes, I'm not going to the Medina, I'm not going to wander through the souqs, I'm not going to get lost. I'm going to come to Riad Norma, and enjoy the solitude, sitting by the pool and relaxing. Monique is a wonderful, wonderful hostess. Charming, gracious and utterly lovely. Ask her to tell you...

We spent 4 nights in Riad Norma the end of March. It was a memorable stay. The Riad is beautifully restored and furnished by Monique, the owner, with great attention to detail and impeccable taste. We stayed in the suite Tosca, which was very large, with lovely furniture and a very comfortable bed. We had four course dinner in the... More

Riad Norma is beautiful and all the staff are wonderfully warm and welcoming. The garden is cool and shady and the rooms, named after Maria Callas opera performances, are huge and well appointed. Madame Monique ensures that all you need is provided and seeks at all times to provide before you know you need it. You should definitely look at... More

Great food and an added bonus of a bottle of wine with Dinner. The position of the place makes it very accessible both for vehicular access to be... More

We stayed at Riad Norma in November 2014 and Madame Monique made us feel very welcome from the start. The Riad has been beautifully restored and offers excellent and comfortable accommodation within a stones throw of the wonderful Medina. Monique and her staff were attentive, the rooms were spacious and luxurious and the food was excellent. We dined every night... More

This is a very special place to stay perfectly situated on the edge of the Medina with fabulous spacious rooms, Monique and staff are extremely helpful and hospitable - do ensure you leave yourself enough time to actually enjoy the Riad - the garden is cool and peaceful and the rooftop terrace in the evening is wonderful.

Until now there was only one place in the world that we return to time and again. Now we have another. Riad Norma is a haven of tranquility in the busy Medina of Fez. The architecture is stunning, the rooms large, comfortable and cool and the garden with pool is a haven in which to relax. The owner, Monique, and... More
