“nice place in FEZ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Nice place, comfortable and new as it was open only since few months. Staff very nice.

Only the area of FEZ might be seen as unsecure for international standards.

But it would get better and better I guess!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This was my first time in Morocco and in Fes and it couldn't have been better! The city is buzzing with so many things that its impossible to fit it in one trip. I stayed in a couple of different riads depending on my shifting financial resources and my last few days were spent in Dar Sondos.

The rooms are simple, but very nice and done in good taste. And they are super clean. The work on the ceilings and doors is exquisite. I had the room "Sadi'a" on the terrace overlooking the medina, which allowed me to make good use of my camera in the mornings! To someone who has never been here, its a remarkable experience to see/hear all the different call to prayers going off at the same time all around the city.

Mohammad, the owner, was gracious and kind. On my arrival he got me a phone and a sim card without any hassle (and for cheaper than what I would have negotiated.) More importantly, he came to my rescue with just one phone call when I was lost in the labyrinths of the medina and being worked on by the local "guides"!

Sophia, the lady who manages the place is wonderful! She is soft spoken, hard working and generally quiet, but once you engage her you will end up having a wonderful conversation full of wit and jokes. (Just to confirm that I am not fibbing, she has a masters degree in philosophy!). In all the days that me and my friend stayed there, we never had to ask twice about our breakfast, laundry and cleaning of the rooms.

The Dar is located in a more spacious and cleaner part of the medina, with no impromptu guides trying to take you somewhere you don't want to go. There is a convenience store an alley away and a cafe, bus/taxi stop and ATM at about 2-3 minutes walk. All in all a wonderful and comfortable experience. I will absolutely live here again and will recommend it to friends traveling to Fes.

My best wishes to Dar Sondos!

Room Tip: The terrace room is a little bit of a workout, especially if you come in and out several times a day...
