We (partner and I) have just returned from a chilled out, warm and relaxing stay in Fez and nearby Moulay Idriss. We stayed in Fez at the start and end of our trip and chose riads in different sections of the medina to experience as much as possible of the maze of alleys and shops which change depending which section you are in. We had booked Dar Skalli before our arrival and as directed, took a taxi to the fountain and phoned them so the lovely and cheerful English speaking manager could come and meet us and escort us to the riad. The room we were given was huge -that's huge!! - with colourful bedding and an area of comfortable sofas in the usual bright Moroccan colours. The bathroom was up a set of quite steep but charming iron banistered stairs and the bath was so deep that it felt like a swimming pool!! What was great was that there was no problem with hot water so a happy hour was spent soaking! The room was on the ground floor and conveniently next to the patio - but except for breakfast we weren't aware of any major noise - you are however in the middle of the busy and thriving medina so a bit of noise from the streets outside is only to be expected. As is always the case, the lighting in the riad bedrooms is not European - Morocco electricity seems to favour more subdued lighting, but it was certainly better than others we have stayed in. We stayed in three different riads during our trip and agreed that this was certainly the best all round. It is close to the medina but a few streets from the main throng, the staff were very helpful and friendly and we would be happy to recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Fez.
