5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Chose Riad Ghitta as just on the edge of the Medina which meant that the taxi can drop you off outside the door - cars cannot go into teh Medina where many of the hotels are. Arrived late at night due to another Moroccan train delays but staff were there with a warm welcome and Moroccan tea. Got a free upgrade to a huge suite - amazing
The lady owner of the Riad arranged a very good guide - Irdiss, to show us around the Medina for half a day.
Overall would recommend this as a perfect Riad to enjoy your time in Fes

Room Tip: Do not try doing the Medina on your own with the thought of it must be fun to get lost in the narrow...

We heard a lot about good reviews. Owner is very hands on so it's good. Location is very nice as well and the rooms are clean. You might find it a bit pricy but don't forget the city tax. Also the atmosphere is really nice and the breakfasts are amazing

After being in whole Morocco and having explored the whole Medina and modern town in Fez I can tell that Riad Ghita is my home in Morocco for its "homy" service since the first minute you enter the owner, assistants give you the warmest Moroccan welcome. They are all the time ready to make your stay unforgetable. Last but not least, its location is the best a Riad can have in the laberynthic Medina for it is in Medina's heart and also meters for vehicle access and the authentic Place R'Cif ! I highly recomend to have dinner in the Riad: the cook is superb !!

On a girls trip to morocco and we were lucky enough to be booked into this oasis in Fez. We were welcomed to this family run business by very friendly staff and the owner. Our room was just off the beautiful open terrace and was large with a lounge and queen size bed. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful.

I would highly recommend this riad if you are travelling to Fez

The Riad's courtyard is a delight and the room I stayed in probably the most palatial room I have ever occupied. The welcome was very cordial and helpful. Dining on the terrace above was a pleasure of an evening and breakfast in the interior cool of the morning was excellent. The upstairs room occupied by my companions was not to be recommended compared with those below. The location is easy to find compared with those inside the Medina but the walk to the interior is not long. Given the stories of getting lost within we were guided by Mustapha, the Riad's recommended guide, on the first day who was informative and gave us an idea of the place for later independent wandering. A uniquely preserved ancient city.

Riad Ghita was a little bit disappointing.
We booked the room in the patio but we stayed only one night because the smell of mould.
We asked to change the room and we moved in the room on the terrace but the situation did not change a lot.
The breakfast was very good and rich. Location: during the day is easy to move around because the riad is near the medina but in the evening you have to take the taxi because the restaurant and the night life is near the Blue door.
The people in the riad are very helpful and they prepared the breakfast at 6.30 the day when we left.

we were 2 couples and spent 2 nights in April in this wonderful house-there is nearby also
existing the "Ghita Palace" with an even better comfort+design than the "normal" Ghita-we were
there the first guests, and got really this special "1001 nights" feeling ! The friendly,welcoming
service, and the excellent local kitchen was contributing to a perfect staying.

Room Tip: the rooms in the 2nd-3rd floor are quiet and morroco-style furnished
