A wonderful and interesting place to relax for a few days. It really offers everything: a beautiful riad located in the heart of the medina and close to all the interesting sights, competent, efficient and welcoming staff, excellent food (and lots of it). The stairs to the roof might be challenging but well worth the effort for the view.

This was our favorite stay while on a 10 day road-trip around Morocco. We loved the interiors - - tastefully decorated and thoughtfully restored. You can see the owners are indeed architects. Convenient location also in the heart of the medina - including just steps away from the Seffarine souk that many tourists stop by at. Kate, one of the... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Dar Seffarine in March, 2015 during a 10-day trip around the country. Staying at the riad was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip! The building is spectacular, and every room we saw was incredible. The architecture is beautiful and the riad is decorated with beautiful Moroccan furnishings that add to... More

I was at Dar Seffarine with my husband in 2009 and loved the place. This time we were back with our three sons and a sister and her family. We were 10 altogether. The Dar is incredibly well preserved- restored, and decorated. All the rooms are different and all very nice. Food is delicious, breakfast is great, every morning they... More

I agree with previous reviewers who said this is one of the most memorable places they have ever stayed in and also that it is an oasis from the chaos of Fes. Once you have been helped to locate the narrow wooden door that is the entrance in a small side street of the soukh, and enter, the beauty of... More

Our stay in Dar Seffarine was one of the most memorable holidays we have ever had. What a wonderful place; a great credit to the owners and the house team for their attention to detail in restoring this remarkable building and their standard of service. We stayed for a week in the Kobe Suite which was like living in our... More

I had read that Dar Seffarine was an oasis from the chaos of Fes and it was exactly that. The friendly and attentive service made our stay so comfortable and fostered an open and welcoming environment in which travelers felt encouraged to interact with each other. The riad itself is a work of art, so beautifully restored with intricate wood... More

The integrity and passion which the owners have shown in renovating the building makes other riads look like cheap dumps. It is a masterclass in not cutting corners. But it isn't just an exquisite building, it's a working riad. The hosts and their staff are genial, the food better than anywhere else I ate in Fes, the rooms are spotless... More

We stayed at the riad for 4 days, the place is incredible and located near of the landmarks in the medina so its relatively easy to find which is important if you are in the old Fez. All rooms are large and very beautifully designed in traditional Moroccan style but with some modern take on it. the attention to detail... More

The door at the end of a very narrow dark alley opens to a passage ending in a modest courtyard with orange trees. After passing through two more doors an oasis of startling luxury awaited us. "This is your palace, and you are the king and queen." Alaa, our gracious host smiled as our jaws dropped upon scanning our surroundings.... More
