This riad is distinguished by the incredibly friendly staff and the beautiful interior. The staff went out of their way to prepare couscous for three hungry, late-arriving visitors. Didn’t realize what an imposition this was until later when I learned how involved it is to prepare the dish.
Apparently, three smaller riads were combined to make the current accommodation. Look for subtly different tile patterns as you pass through the antechambers. We poked our noses into a couple of the other rooms and they were all top-notch, as was our own.
Note that this riad is located inside the medina and is a 20 minute walk from Bab Boujloud. Hire a push-cart driver to handle the luggage and (hopefully) get you to the hotel. Look for small black signs once you get within 500 meters. The hotel is located up a short, climbing alley and is denoted by a pink sign. Good luck and welcome to Fes!
