“A place where you feel instantly at home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2011

Great place to stay during your visit to Fez. Nice location to explore thousands of Medina's streets. Cool restaurants nearby: Clock cafe and Le Scorpion de Desert. But the key element is the staff: Hinchan and Salah make everything to help you feel at your own place from the very first moment and till your departure. Thank you once again for your attention, guys.

We were received by Hicham at the Bab Bou Jeloud on arrival and taken to the riad. We were given a map and taken to the nearby Le Scorpion du Desert for lunch by Salah after a tiring bus ride. Our room was wonderfully large, airy and clean. The breakfast on the terrace is an experience by itself, with the warm morning sun! Ring the staff in advance so you don't get lost, but with a good sense of direction, it is not difficult to find on your own.

Riad Tayba was newly opened when we found it on line with absolutely no reviews. But the website looked good. It is an old villa in the Medina turned into a Riad, beautifully appointed apartments, excellent meals prepared inhouse on demand, and great management--thanks Jamil for a fabulous stay. It is close to and inside the famous Blue Gate enterance to the Medina, hence "easy" to get to, if getting anywhere in the Medina of Fes is easy. But it was truly a part of experiencing Fes, which was the highlight of our Morocco trip, and not to be missed--even better than Marakesh. Definitely use a guide to get around the Medina; it is huge.

Riad Tayba is located near Bab Bou Jloud and the Talaa Khebira in the medina. Excellent location on walking distance of all medina sights, and 3 minutes walking from taxi stop at Bou Jloud.

Their most outstanding feature is the friendly staff, who go out of their way to help you, and with a good sense of humour.

The suite rooms are spacy and comfortable with excellent matrasses on the double beds, and beautiful authentic tadelakt bathrooms. The two entry-level rooms are very small and simple, but cost ca. 60% of the price of a suite. All rooms have airco.

The Riad is a beautiful building. The pool is too small to call it a "swimming" pool, but it is a nice relief after a long walk in the medina. Wifi is available in the central courtyard; probably also in the suite at groundfloor and the 2 small rooms. A generous breakfast is included.
A complete Moroccon dinner can be served for 15 euro if pre-reserved, but staff is also helpfull to reserve restaurants in the medina.

From the airport, take a taxi to Bab Bou Jloud and ask the staff to pick you up there (or let the hotel arrange the taxi for 15 euro) .

We (2 persons) staid here for 4 nights and had a great time.

Room Tip: We had the suite on top floor which was very quiet

I was the first guest in this palace. I came with my wife from the city of Agadir that day, and we booked a twin room for one night, but when we got there, Jamil who is the manager told us that we are the first people to stay in the hotel and so the owner of the house, a french lady, gave us a suite instead. That was a great surprise for us. Anyway, we spent two days more and explored this imperial city of Fez, and in all our stay we were treated as a royal couple. Thanks a lot to the professional team, and we will surely come again to Riad Tayba next time.

Maybe November is not the best time to visit Morocco but at least there were less people than in high season. The disadvantage was very high humidity inside the hotel - so, we had to switch on the heater all the time. Another weak point is that the rooms (and especially bathrooms) are too small. But anyway we had a nice staying there - the staff was really polite and helpful. And often - invisible (I mean the cleaning ladies and so on).
