I stayed at Raid Verus for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute! The staff were extreamly friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Also the staff organised a medina and desert tour for me! Overall great stay :)

Warm welcome. great location. beautiful decor. very friendly staff. Frequented by those seeming to be in their late 20s and early 30s and all very friendly. Noor, Elenora and Youseff are super helpful answering all our questions and pointing us in the right direction. They will also set you up with tours and activities if you want. Room are a bit temperature cold so wear socks to bed ... no heating in the riad (which I heard is standard)! Breakfast is plentiful and tasty. Would highly recoommend to stay here if traveling alone, couples or friends.

We are so pleased you liked the greeting and the location and also the very friendly staff. you are right in stating that we are very popular with the 20s to 30s crowd and all our guests are outgoing and friendly. We are pleased you liked the breakfast and that it would be top of your recommendation list. With regards the heating, we just took away the heaters fromthe patios as the weather has greatly improved and in the rooms there is a heating system which double as AC, so perhaps you just thought it was an AC unit. I wish I had known and would have shown you how to use the temperature control wand and you would not have had to wear socks in bed or could have provided additional blankets. All rooms are kitted out with snug high quality blankets and more are available on demand.

Riad Verus was our first choice for where to stay cos had read that it was a safe choice and run by an English girl. Morocco is not an easy place to travel as two pale skinned and blond haired girls. When we arrived we told Eleanora who understood and she asigned Joseph the concierge man to chaperone us that night and took us to a local restaurant where we ate like Queens at peasent prices and later Noor took us out. Was very comforting to feel protected and cared for. The next day we did an organised Medina tour with a sweet English speaking guide recommended by the Riad and he doubled up as a bodyguard.

As for the Riad itself it was a chilled oasis with plenty of character, warmth and details.

We are so pleased you chose Riad Verus based on our reputation for security and how we take care of all our guests especially females. As a Westener I know how the Medina can be daunting walking it alone or just with one other girl and hence always recommend that you go accompanied at least on the first day so that it breaks down nerves. Yussef is employed by us to help make the guests feel at ease and can recommend great eateries at little prices and the guided tour of the Medina is great as it takes away the pressure and you can see most of Fes in a short amount of time for only 15 Euros between 3 of you.

My boyfriend and I spent a memorable two night stay at Riad Verus this month and were taken back by Noors' génerous nature and kindness. Before getting to the station we rang to tell train times and he came to personally pick us up. The train was a complete nightmare so it was good when we arrived and an end to hassle. The Riad was a perfect place for orientation and the place to be.

Riad Verus was a fine place to chill and relax in its entirity. The courtyard was a good place to chill under the nice subtle lighting listening to chill out tunes and the terrace was where it was at during the day watching birds swirl in the sunshine. The room I had booked was splendid and the showerbathroom clean and hot water all day long. Its no surprise the Riad was full during my stay mainly I felt cos staff and owner (noor) anticipate your moves and it works. Good luck from Cally and James

This was the only Riad which arranged a pickup service for me and I was impressed from the start. A smart man met us at train and took us to Riad quickly. The price is reasonable and facilities excellent. The terrace is lovely and hotel all clean and smart. It was better than we could have imagined.
