We stayed in the Dar Naima for a few days on a short trip from Barcelona. I can thoroughly recommend this Riad for the location and the exceptionally friendly staff, Hanane in particular was always ready to help guests with shopping trips, guides or taxis. The roof terrace was a fantastic bonus, though sometimes a little chilly at this time of year. The Riad is in the process of expansion and renovation so the entrance is a bit rough and ready but that was more than made up for by the daily room cleaning, towel changing and traditional internal decor. Our impression was that the Riad is really rather easy to find from the Ain Azlitten gate but Hanane prefers to meet you there as I guess its easier to find you before you get lost... Fes itself is a fascinating place with little major hassle from touts. Quite a few will try it on as a guide or to sell you something but mostly in a friendly way and there was never any aggravation. In general tourists are a minor part of Fes so are not entirely treated as cash cows. Eating out in the Medina is limited to the few overpriced tourist restaurants but the Fassis do not eat out much if at all so these restaurants are 100% for tourists. In reality it still very cheap by European standards and the delicious Pastilla is well worth the price. If money really matters buy one from a stall and feast for pennies.
