“great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

The riad and Jean Claude are very nice and welcoming. He makes you feel like home. Pleasent to relax after a day in the medina, with a small swimming pool in the garden and all the useful tips Jean Claude gave about Fes and the sorroundings. We had dinner at the riad: it was delicious and huge! We would definetely go back and reccomend it!

Having received a personal email from jean Claude in advance of our arrival we were able to arrange a pick up from the train station. That was much needed after an 8 hour train journey!! From there on in nothing was too much trouble for jean Claude.
He was helpful but not intrusive....drove us to get bus tickets in advance so we were able to secure seat for the next day....
In terms of the riad itself the views were amazing and the location was spot on.
Breakfast was wonderful as it was like a French breakfast...warm croissants and French bread.

We were the only guests and came and went as we wanted. Jean Claude gave us some good recommendations for dinner and tried to arrange a hamman (though timings didn't work out in the end)....
The room was on the top floor and the only slight criticism was there was not enough light in the room....but we survived ;-)

Many riad's could take a leaf out of jean Claude's book I'm sure!!!
We recommended this place to our friends that we crossed over with at a riad in Rabat so I am hoping they enjoyed the stay as much as we did!!

Great welcome & advice, good location, beautiful riad with garden, small little plunge pool with loungers but welcome after a hot day, excellent quality & very copious dinner by candlelight and the best breakfast of our whole week in Morocco!

The plus of this riad is the wonderful garden and Jean Claude himself. The room we had was great and warm. It had just some little issues on the bathroom sink but you will forgive it when you look outside from the balcony at the garden and the swimming pool. Jean Claude then makes you feel at home and offers all the help you need in everything.
Thanks Jean Claude!!

As my kids said: "Once you enter the riad, you have to think twice before remembering that this isn't a dream."
Jean Claude's kindness is certainly a big part of the reason for this enthousiasm. But the riad itself, although fairly small, deserves it too.

I had the most incredible stay at this riad. Jean Claude has done an amazing job making this guest house feel as if you were staying with a Moroccan family.

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Breathtaking, tranquil gardens are a welcome escape from the hustle-and-bustle of the medina. It's in perfect proximity to the medina - close enough to walk to, yet far away from the loud night action.

Be sure to have dinner at Jean Claude's!! The couscous was the BEST we had in Morocco. Our biggest regret was not eating there more often. We should have eaten here EVERY night.

Jean Claude and his staff members were phenomenal! They were friendly, helpful and made us feel so welcomed.

You'll be happy that you stayed here. A truly wonderful experience!

The Riad is excellently located on the outskirts of the medina with reasonably priced parking adjacent. It is one of the few at his price where you will get a garden and real swimming pool as opposed to so called 'plunge pools'. Bedrooms have somewhat eccentric colour schemes, but good showers with plenty of hot water. We had two rooms and consequently a private balcony with tables and a stunning view of the medina. Breakfasts are among the very best we have had in several trips to Morocco.
The highlight is Jean-Claude himself. He really is prepared to go the extra mile. In our case this was sorting out quickly and effectively a problem caused by our car hire company, which could have been a major issue. He also gave us a guided tour of Fez in his own car on our first day. He took us to the supermarket and taxied us to restaurants which he recommended and booked for us, all of which were outstnding. Thank you Jean-Claude, we would thoroughly recommend this riad.
