I stayed with my family over xmas and new years and it was perfect. We stayed for 12 nights. The place is very stylish and covered in architectural details from when it must have been some rich guy's house. It looks like something out of a travel magazine, but not too over the top. It's actually quite minimal chic.
This place is for people who want to stay in the medina (amazing) and who want to be immersed 'real' Fes, yet at the same time want enough luxury to ensure that their time there is comfortable. It does not feel like a B&B, it is a boutique hotel really but if you stay for more than a night or two it becomes your home.
The staff were beyond amazing. I would give them a 6/5 if I could. They went above and beyond: the breakfast was waiting and they would set it up where ever we felt like it, on the roof, in the courtyard, by the fire. Dinner was as good or better than the best we had in any restaurant. They were very sweet people, in fact I've facebooked them.
The beds were comfortable, the sheets fantastic. There was hot water when we needed it because I noticed on TripAdv that this was an issue when I was researching this trip. The bathrooms were stylish and very clean. In fact the whole place is very clean.
Overall, after only one trip, I would say the most important thing to know about Morocco for the newbie is that if you smile and try to interact with people, you will have a much better time than if you feel intimidated and try to avoid any 'hustle'. I found that any dude who was trying too hard to sell me something could be completely defused with a smile and some small talk about how much I loved his city/country. I LOVED it.
