The host is a gracious multi-lingual man who is justifiably proud of the classic moorish architecture and decor of his riad. His staff is courteous, patient, and capable. The riad is 3 minutes from Place d'Istiqlil (Musee Batha) and 8 minutes, well-lit, from the cluster of restaurants just inside Bab Bou Jloud. (Restaurants are otherwise hard to come by in Fez B'Ali - the old city - the medina.) For an intimate Fez experience, not the big, impersonal, expensive Palais Jamai which requires a taxi ride to get anywhere, stay in Fez B'Ali and this is a superb place to do it.
