This Riad is tucked away down a couple of alleyways, about 5 minutes walk from the main Medina. We arrived at about 9.30 pm by car and were virtually accosted by various people on the street offering us "help" to find the place. If you accept their help, give them about 10-20 dirhams (approx 70 pence to £1.50). It's awkward... More

Our tour company booked a senior suite for us but we got a standard room when we arrived because we wanted separate twin beds. The standard room was on the rooftop and smelled very musky. I complained and they were slightly hesitating on giving us a better room by saying there are no other rooms ready. We told them we... More

Hidden at the end of a narrow passage way, the door at Riad Ibn Khaldoun opens to a beautiful tiled central court. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was most accommodating and made us feel like family. A plus was to see the owners collection of old costumes...not sure if he still does this. A very pleasant and... More

We stayed two nights in this Riad in Fes. When first taken through the dark maze of corridors to the main door, we were a bit apprehensive. The doors opened and we were greeted with a spectacular ambiance of beautiful hand engraved plaster, hand carved and painted ceilings, a three story entrance hall and spotlessly clean. Our hosts, Tayeb and... More

Great Riad to stay at close to the Medina. It was easy to find and the staff is fantastic! They were very kind and willing to help with everything. The view from the roof is amazing and not to be missed. We enjoyed our breakfast up there soaking in the sunlight and wonderful views. They also set us up for... More

Once you get past the introductory dark and narrow alley that leads you to the Riad, you knock two door knockers to enter into this amazing space. A central court that all rooms open off of and that soars up 3-4 flights, it is filled with Moroccan furnishings and you feel like you've stepped back in time. You will enjoy... More

If you want to experience Morocco in a more traditional way, Riads are made for you. This one is located very close to a parking and so, allows you to be in the medina, without having to walk too long with your luggages in the streets. Also, the owner, as friendly as his staff, has kept its traditional flair and... More

Looking for an authentic Moroccan experience? Here it is! Don't let the dark alley way of the medina deter you. Live the experience as an authentic Moroccan house guest and savor the hospitality at Riad Ibn Khaldoun. Appreciate the quality of centuries old craftmanship of mosaics, cedar carvings, and home cooked Moroccan cuisine. LOVELY staff and welcoming owner will make... More
