Riad Le Calife was one of the highlights in our 14-day trip around Morocco. The place is unique, combining the autenticity of the traditional riad with the charm and confort of a boutique hotel. Nice details, like a radio-alarm clock with a good selection of music that comes from a pen drive, a mini bar (not common in most of the riads), or the colorful bathroom, everything made the difference. Another reason for staying there is the hospitality from the owners, Alex and Yasmina, who from the very first moment helped us in every detail. One day we forgot to ask in advance for the dinner, so their staff improvised a very nice and delicious vegetarian meal, for a reduced price. The other day we were checkin our e-mails at the notebook that the guests can use for free and were surprised by a cocktail prepared by Alex and accompanied by a friendly chat.
Since the medina in Fes is probably the busiest in all Morocco, you can easily get lost or be intimidated by locals trying to get your money , so we hardly reccomend you to use the services of a guide suggested and booked by Alex and Yasmina. Our guide, Hassan, was very nice, and we were able to discover all the details of that nice city. Since we had to pay 400 dihrams to him and 300 dihrams to the driver that took us up and down the whole day, it may be expensive, but it´s worthy if you don´t have more than two days to know Fes. And the guide will also explain you why the doors in moroccan houses have two knockers...
After two nights in Le Calife our only regret was...not staying longer!
