My Lady and I will arrive in fes during the middle of June 2013, after spending a few nights in Merzouga and before this Marrakesh. We are set to stay 3 nights in Fes, and wondering if its best to book some cheap accommodation beforehand, or wait until we arrive???
I have read that the tout/Guesthouse hard sell can be rather fierce in Morocco, especially in the fes Medina...given that we will be traveling overnight from Mergouza, we are likely to be corpse tired, and far from eager to deal with too much pressure from strange faces. The ideal will be to hunt down a lair, rest, relax, explore the nearby area, then dive head first into the medina the next day once recharged.
As for budget, the cheapest possible for a couple, with a private bathroom. Near the medina would be useful...
