Our riad arranged for us to have a Fes Gourmet meal here. The riad is lovingly and beautifully restored - this is Bernard's home not a project. The food was sensational - soup, sardines with chermoula and "hidden lamb" couscous. Bravo

We stayed two nights at the Riad Souafine and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was large and the bed comfortable. Our room only had a bathtub with a handheld not a shower per sat but there was lots of hot water and good water pressure. We rated the breakfast the hotel served as the best we had in Morocco....

We stayed here in June, during the Music Festival, and nearly two months later are still under the charm. Welcoming guests is a fine art for Bernard and his team, we were wonderfully spoilt all week. The riad itself is beautifully restored and ideally situated in a quiet patrician part of the medina, while only a few minutes walk from... More

You will not be disappointed. The hotel is well decorated and is just jaw dropping'ly beautiful. The view from the roof was just as amazing. Make sure to eat dinner there as well. Great cuisine and wine selection. After dinner I really wanted to take the cooking class they offered but unfortunately is was not possible during our stay. After... More

We received excellent service by the owners and staff of the Souafine Riad in Fez. After receiving valuable information on what to do/see and where to eat we were shown the impressive roof terrace of the Riad. What an amazing place. Breakfast was wonderful and the overall service during the stay was above expectations.

During our 4 night visit, we stayed in the Jnane rather than the riad itself although we dropped in every now and again to the riad to sit in the courtyard, get information from Jalal, and enjoy a magificent last night dinner on the terrace overlooking the Medina. Both the riad and the jnane (house with garden as opposed to... More

Fantastic stay at this charming Riad. M. Bernard was exceptionally considerate and helpful at all times. We were very well looked after by Jilal, who showed exceptional patience in answering our many and varied questions. Hassan's cooking was superb (we dined at the Riad on 6 out of 7 evenings) and we had great fun with him trying to determine... More

Our family of five and my mother stayed at the Jnane Souafine upon our first arrival in Fes. The Jnane has narrow corridors and steep stairs to access most rooms but, overall, exceeded our expectations. It has a pleasant and leafy garden we did not know of, and breakfast is served outdoor on the side balcony; it also has a... More
