Although this riad is on the pricier end of what you can find in Fes, you definitely get what you pay for. The building is absolutely beautiful, and the staff are very friendly. The view of the old town from the rooftop patio is amazing (I wish we had stayed longer just to enjoy this view more). Breakfast was good, although their promise to provide a gluten free option was not fulfilled. Staying in the Medina is a bit of an adventure, as well, and can be trying. Don't make the mistake of showing up after dark - it can make finding the hotel in the maze a bit intimidating.
