I think that my title is a fairly accurate base description of this hotel. However, I think that there is a lot of room for improvement here. We arrived at the Riad after almost 10 hours of travel (plane, train and automobile). I had emailed to advise of my arrival time, but evidently there is no one that is keeping... More

The lamb tagine was amazingly tender and delicious. After the lamb, the chicken tagine was not as tasty as it felt overcooked. The 2 Moroccan musicians were friendly and helped along with our birthday celebration even though we couldn't communicate in words. The ambiance was authentic and inviting. Overall a good experience.

As part of our tour of Morocco we booked a two night stay at the Riad Arabesque. Our arrival by car left us wondering what we had gotten ourselves into. The road up the the Riad was unmade and seemed to go through a builder's recycling dump and a small shanty town. (We have since found out that this entrance... More

We came to Riad Arabesque for a dinner as part of our coach tour of Morocco. I have to say it was one of the best meals I had in Morocco because of the food, the ambiance of the setting and the absolute beauty of the Riad itself. We had lamb tagine with sides of eggplant, a tomato jam and... More

I recently had the pleasure to step back in time whilst visiting Fez. Riad Arabesque is a gateway to a world of palaces and pleasures of the good life from times gone by. The location adjacent to the Palais Jamai is without peer, and the views from the terrace give a 360 panorama over one of the most ancient and... More

This is probably the the most beautiful place we've ever stayed at and we've traveled a lot and have been lucky enough to stay at a lot of wonderful places. This is a family owned Riad located in the heart of old Fes and has a beautiful view of the city from either the balcony or the terrace. The interior... More

As a group of 10 people we all opted for the Riad option for our coach tour at an additional charge. Wow, we made the correct decision. The walk down the alley way from our coach was a little concerning wondering what we had let ourselves in for. On arriving and entering the Riad we immediately fell in love with... More

Prompt midnight pick-up at the airport for small fee. Was received by the owners downstairs at back of the ramparts driveway, up tiled stairs to main level, another world!!! Over a glass of wine made acquaintance, settled preliminaries. Up to my room through the three-story atrium with pleasure (my word) pool over steep tiled stairs. Colorfully curtained bedroom, stained glass... More

Lucky that the taxi driver dropped us not too far away, but then needed a friendly local to show us how to get through the winding, confusing streets. The building is beautiful, traditional style and the food was delicious - especially the seafood pastilla! The staff were all very attentive and helpful. I had a lovely massage there, too. The...
