This Riad has recently been renovated, and it is very nice and quite cheap if compared to other places in Fes. Everything is decorated in the traditional Moroccan style, and the common areas (dining room, TV room, terrace) are very nice and pleasant. The view from the terrrace is wonderful. Given the fact that you will have to walk to reach the riad and that there is no elevator, this place is not suited for people with restricted mobility.
The typical Moroccan architecture ensures that the temperature in the inside are much lower than outside. I don't even know if they do have air conditioning, because we never felt the need to turn it on (quite the opposite, as I was wearing a sweater inside the riad). There is free wifi, although it works good in the central area and not that much in the rooms.
There are only 5 rooms, most of them tiny, apart from the suite. Our room was of the tiny kind, and it was also smelling unpleasantly. It seemed to be clean, though, so probably the smell was coming from outside - never forget that you are in the medina.
Staff is very helpful, and they also arranged us a very competent guide, Youssef, who showed us the beautiful medina. You can also book transportation from/to the airport, although the car cannot arrive in front of the riad (streets in the medina are really tiny) and you will have to walk. Anyway, Rachid would normally help you with your luggage.
Food is delicious, but as it is traditionally prepared, you should place your order at least a couple of hours in advance. Alchool is not served. Breakfast (abundant and included in the price) can also be served in the terrace.
