Excellent Riad to stay in
Location: Great location. Easy to find from the medina entrance gate. A short 2minute walk away from the "little" main street where all the action is happening.
Rooms: Clean, spacious rooms, with AC (which also provides excellent heating in the winter), TV (with English BBC channel!) and luxurious beds. Clean, western style toilets, huge showers with no short supply of hot water.
Service: Great. The Riad manager was MOST helpful during our stay in Fez. He arranged a great English official guide for a half day tour around the Fez medina. He offered to help us organize a tour that went to the desert (which we did not ultimately take up because we were not very interested). He was the MOST helpful and genuine person we met in Morocco. When we had problems fedex-ing our souvenirs back home, by his own initiative he rode the taxi with us to the fedex office and stayed with us to translate until our package was sucessfully processed by fedex. Besides the riad manager, one of the hotel staff named Hicham was most attentive and respectful (from the perspective of 2 ladies travelling together) throughout our stay.
Food: We LOVED the breakfast at the Riad. We were served freshly baked bread rolls and freshly made traditional moroccan crumpets with spreads. Simple but very filling and satisfying. We had dinner there one of the nights. However because we did not pre order, it was just pastilla and salads. Still it was very good. Be mindful however, that dinner is very expensive. The cost of the dinner came as a shock to me when I received the bill at the end of our stay.
I would highly recommend anyone who comes through Fez to stay here. It is inexpensive and you get a great room and great service.
