This Riad is simply stunning and comfortable. It is decorated in traditional Moroccan style. Various cultural artefacts are on display, which makes the Riad a living museum. The rooms are equipped with everything that a traveller requires. There is a swimming pool. The staff members are friendly and efficient. In short, a stylish riad which offers a unique cultural experience.

An amazing Riad with so much original ornate furniture and furnishings. It felt as though we were private guests of a Riad before it became a 'Hotel' partly because it was a quiet time for visitors. The staff were wonderful and the breakfast amazing. We so appreciated the quiet relaxation after the bustle of Fes. The cobbled streets get narrower... More

Riad Yacout is tucked away in the old quarter of Fez. The building is a great example of Moroccan architecture. The rooms are a little funky with heavy red drapes and bedding, but the baths are newly renovated and very nice. It is a perfect location for exploring the old town of fez and the souk.
