The owners - Stephen and Bruno - as well as the team running the place did their best to hand over the key of the castle to us during our stay. Their passion is contagious, their knowledge of Fes stimulating, and their friendliness heart-warming. We cannot imagine the trip to Fes without staying at Riad 9, this is easily one of the most unforgettable encounters of our travels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad n°9 is an 18th century bourgeois residence that has been reincarnated as a boutigue bed and breakfast. The decisive factor in purchasing the property was the roof terrace which has sweeping views over the medina. Riad n°9 was originally purchased as a vacation home in 1999 and underwent a 3-year restoration process. We uncovered all the original 18th century mosaics, carved wood and plaster and hand-painted wood. In 2007, we opened to the public and changed nothing believing guests would appreciate the "personal" touches throughout. Our philosophy is to offer guests the possibility of appropriating the space for themselves and experiencing what an authentic medina home feels like. ... more less
