“Top Riad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

I think that it is fairly evident from the reviews that this is a fairly special place.I can only agree with everyone else that this is an excellent place to stay in Fes.When we stayed there we were the only guests there which made us feel as if we were weekend guests in a country house.We were made so welcome.The rooms are delightful.What more can I say?
If you intend to visit Fes then this is certainly the place to stay.
The Medina in Fes (where this Riad is situated) is extremely confusing and not for the faint hearted.We quickly realised that the Riad was well positioned to pick up anTaxi to the Souk area ( cost about 40p) so that walking to the same area was unnecessary.The walk would take about 25 minutes ( despite what everyone else tells you about a " five minute walk") through back streets which were totally uninteresting.So my advice is to take the taxi!

Until now there was only one place in the world that we return to time and again. Now we have another. Riad Norma is a haven of tranquility in the busy Medina of Fez. The architecture is stunning, the rooms large, comfortable and cool and the garden with pool is a haven in which to relax. The owner, Monique, and her staff are cultured and helpful and the food must be the best in the City. We will be returning. Peter and Andrea Allen

We were visiting Fes to attend a friend's wedding and wanted to have some relaxing time whilst attending the celebrations and discovering Fes. Riad Norma was perfect for us: Ideally located in one of the quietest part of the medina, whilst providing easy access to all the sites. Monique was very welcoming and insightful and Faysal and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our bedroom was very comfortable and quiet and the rest of the riad is delightful. We will definitely come back, highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at Norma!

The hostess is a wonderful french lady who help with any request and comes with good advices. We had dinner at the hotel one night which was a really good experience, ended up chatting with the other guest until midnight and the food was sublime.

We would def come back :)

A magnificent, lovingly-restored riad in Fes Medina with beautiful attention to detail, wonderful owner and staff, and very comfortable accommodation with big rooms and plenty of cosy spots to enjoy around the riad. Highly recommended.

In January of 2014 a friend and I spent two nights at Riad Norma in Fes, Morocco, the first leg of a longer journey in Morocco. We were very pleased with the accommodations: all amenities in the room, well-heated room, space heaters in the courtyard and dining room, beautiful tea service on arrival, beautiful garden, oranges picked directing from the garden and brought to our table, special services provided on request, and delightful chats with hostess Monique. The rooms are named for operas and each evening meal is accompanied by classical music.
