Colleagues and I were there for Christmas Eve and the night. The riad is beautiful and we were greated charmingly. The owners also organized a special Christmas dinner for us, had live music, and all was warm and welcoming! Great experience!

Run by a wonderful, friendly Moroccan family, Riad Arabesque captures the atmosphere of the rich history, culture and hospitality of the country. Perfectly located for exploring the old Fes medina, this beautifully restored riad provides a total experience from authentic cuisine to traditional decor detail.

The architecture and the art deco was just out of this world, the view and landscape of the old medina was simply breath taking. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival. The layout was very spacious and the rooms were very generous. The staff were also very friendly and accommodating to the little french i knew. Will definitely... More

We just came back from a FANTASTIC trip to Morocco, which started with our stay in Riad Arabesque in Fes. The Riad is spectacular... beautiful old, traditional, authentic Moroccan design, with so much attention to detail. Opulence, splendor, intricacy all coupled with so much warmth and hospitality- we couldn't have custom made a more perfect place to be. The riad... More

We stayed at this riad for 3 nights. Everything is decorated in a more old fashioned way, if you like it. To me the whole place felt a little "sleepy" and not so warm and service minded as we have found most of other places to be. I don't think I will come back. I know other much nicer riads,... More

I stayed at the Riad Arabesque with a couple of friends and we were pleasantly surprised by the entire service. The place is absolutely magical overlooking the entire Fes Medina. The rooms look like they came out of one thousand and one nights with a cozy dipping pool placed in the middle. The food is also absolutely incredible, everything from... More

I absolutely adore this raid. The ambiance, decor and attention to detail are meticulous- including cleanliness and amenities! The riad itself is a beautiful example of Moroccan architecture and the tile work is simply amazing! The staff was helpful and they served traditional Fezi meals, which were truly a delight. After staying in Fez a few times in more modern... More
