Family of four including 12 and 15 year old stayed in the beautiful and authentic Riad Arabesque for 4 nights in September 2014 in 2 rooms. The Riad is located in the very north east of the medina in the Zenjfour district, a short walk from the Bab Jamai gate. It has its own rear entrance through the medina wall,... More

We stayed at Riad Arabesque in Fez ( April 2014 ) We were very surprised to read the wonderful reviews about this place, our experience could not have been more different. We expected to have "vintage accommodations" but not mold and sewer smell, Room and bathroom were not clean, bed covers and sheets had stains. After complaining we got another... More

I simply felt in love with this place ! Everything seemed to be inspired from the 1001 nights: the fountains, the mezzanine, the pool, the rooms, the view... Behind each wall there's a story ! The owner and his wife are adorable ! The food was delicious. They serve all kind of traditional meals you have ever heard of. A... More

This Riad was obviously lovingly put together by its owners. The decor is ornate, in a luxurious-Morrocan style. The owners are gracious, attentive and very proud of their Riad. Problem is that the Riad needs serious refurbishment. The cushions and slipcovers on sofas, chairs and lounge chairs by the pool are soiled and the air-conditioning equipment in my room was... More

The staff went out of their way to make the Riad feel like home. Beautiful place. We had two dinners on the terrace overlooking the medina and both were excellent. Great rooms, great service, would highly recommend.

It took us a while to get to the Riad, only to realise that they were overbooked. They said they'd put us up in a "riad arabesque 2", but instead took us to a large hotel around the corner. The hotel was probably quite expensive, but it was not what we had paid for. Disliked the attitude of the staff.

We really enjoyed our week long stay at the Arabesque. It was my wife's birthday and as it was a big one we were upgraded to a lovely room by the small pool on the ground floor. The rooms were sumptuous, ornate and very Moroccan. It was beautifully cleaned and we saw the cleaners ironing the sheets on to the... More

This hotel is absolutely stunning. It is filled with a magical Moroccan ambiance to the slightest detail. The hotel is located in the core of the Medina of Fes making it easy to access the streets of the Medina that are rich in Moroccan culture. The cuisine of the hotel is simply delicious. The rooms are so cosy and beautifully... More

We spent only one night at this Riad- NYE and it was incredible! First, there are many lovely riads for $50-75 that you can visit. But paying the extra $25-50 really makes a difference in the quality of your room. The intricate wood carvings everywhere, the hotel pool, the incredible price fixe NYE dinner with belly dancers, fire eaters, berber... More

This Riad was undoubtedly the highlight of our Jules Verne "Morocco Revisited" tour - worth the visit to Morocco in its own right. The entrance from the street made us wonder what was in store - but once inside the word "wonder" summed it up! Truly beautiful in almost every respect. Our room - by the pool - was really... More
