We stayed at Dar Roumana (in the Roumana Suite) in Fes for 5 nights in March 2011. The Dar has been beautifully restored. The Roumana Suite was beautifully appointed with high ceilings, lovely ambiance and high-quality bathroom facilities.
The Dar has a fantastic rooftop terrace with stunning 360-degree panoramic views over the Fes medina - perfect for afternoon tea (which is provided on request) or for the keen photographer.
It was also good to have free access to a computer and internet during our stay.
The staff members Mohammed and Nezra (?) were extremely helpful and friendly.
The Dar is located approximately 200 metres from the main stretch of souqs. We appreciated that it was a little further away from the hustle and bustle of the medina.
We also explored the medina with the help of recommended guide Hakim. Hakim was a wealth of knowledge - educating us about the historical value of the medina and also had impeccable knowledge on music (he was the official guide to Johnny Clegg). We would certainly recommend that you use Hakim's services to gain a better understanding of the medina before venturing out yourselves and getting lost.
