My wife and I stayed at Dar Hafsa two nights. From the moment we arrived Fez to the moment we left, Karim and his son Aziz were gracious, helpful, and caring. We could not have been in better hands during our quick visit. Aziz met us outside of Bab Boujloud and walked us with our luggage to Dar Hafsa. Karim found us an excellent guide for the day who did an efficient one-day tour of Fez medina focusing on history, trade, and food. Dar Hafsa is tucked away in a safe and quiet area, off of the noisy main drag. The breakfast of fresh baked breads, olives, honey, butter, home made marmalade, and and mint tea is delicious. Karim also told us where to go for a very affordable and delicious dinner (a place called Bouyad, right by Bab Boujloud) which is not highly ranked on TripAdvisor but is a must if you want a traditional, affordable meal. I would recommend Dar Hafsa for any budget-minded traveler who is looking for a warm and welcoming family-run place to stay.
