We stayed at Dar Attajalli in May 2012. We took a taxi to the medina, and were met at a parking lot by a gentleman with a cart for our bags. He took us on a winding ~15 minute walk to the riad, which is surprisingly not too dificult to find again once you figure out the two main streets of Fez. Our room was on the second floor, and was spacious, with traditional moroccan plaster walls and wrought iron windows into both the interior of the riad and onto the alley. In the evenings, we sat on the rooftop terrace and drank wine that we bought - and watched the sun set over the Merenid tombs, which are much closer than they look. The only complaint is that the ceiling of our room was quite short, which was fine for me, but my partner is 6'3" and ended up with multiple concussions in the middle of the night, from both the beams in the room, and the doorways. I don't know if all of the rooms' ceilings are this low, but we should have requested to move to a room with a higher ceiling. Breakfast was delicious, made while we were sitting there, and consisted of delicious traditional moroccan pastries and fresh fruit, as well as an almond/walnut flour (?) and brown sugar spread, which I would kill to have the recipe for. Thanks Kleo for a great time in Fes, and for welcoming us to your beautiful riad.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with a tall person, please tell Kleo in advance.

My wife and I stayed here for a week in late June, early July. Our room in the Dar Attajalli was cool and comfortable, and it was a great pleasure to sit out on the beautiful roof terrace in the morning for breakfast and in the evening. We endorse everything previous reviewers have said about the beauty of the Dar Attajalli and its wonderful restoration. Kleo's staff were extremely helpful, organising a couple of trips for us at a good price, and also looking after us when we succumbed to diarrhoea and fever during our stay. Apparently this affects one in two Western tourists who visit Morocco. The only improvement we would make is to be able to pay for the total hotel bill with our credit card, instead of having to make a special trip to the nearest cash machine to draw out Dirhams to pay for the meals element.

Room Tip: The Suite Violette is on the second floor and is very convenient for breakfast and dinner on the roo...

Avec la touche francaise....
My girlfriend and I stayed 4 days here. We could not have asked for more for less. Everything - location, hospitality, graciousness, delicate esthetic and mauve touches, respect for craft and renovation, original carved plaster and carved/painted wood, delicious authentic petit dejeuner and diner, view from roof terrace, and a matronne, Cleo, and her helpful, courteous staff - meant for a perfect medina visit. A rooftop cold dunk tank would have been the only addition to make it more pleasurable. When booking, a tip is to go directly to http://www.attajalli.com/. You'll get a cheaper price!!!
Bonne route!!!

A beautiful, meticulously-restored house in an easily-accessible, good location near the main artery of the medina. Rooms are spacious and attractively decorated, though a bit dark due to the design of these medina houses. Kleo and her staff are gracious and welcoming, and provide lots of information about the medina, the people and the food. Wonderful breakfasts and fantastic dinners with Moroccan vegetarian dishes - fresh and beautifully prepared ingredients. Dive in and absorb the wonderful ever-changing panorama of Fez!

I cannot express how amazing this dar is! Not only are the rooms beautiful and immaculate, but the service and hospitality were unmatched by anywhere I have ever stayed. Kleo and her staff were fantastic and I immediately felt at ease, despite the chaos of the Fez medina. My only regret is that we could not stay longer. We will definitely be back!

Staying at this hotel recently really gave me a genuine experience of living in the Medina (the old city) of Fez. Obviously a lot of thought has gone into designing everything here. I felt very well looked after. All the staff and the owner are charming. I might make special mention of the breakfast, which is unlike any other I've had and also obviously has had a lot of thought put into it. Also it's worth mentioning the great terrace from where there's a beautiful view.
