This riad is very well situated, just 5 minutes walking from the Blue Gate. Rooms are not very big but enough for a double bed and private toilet. Breakfast is simply amazing! I had some issues with my booking, but they took me to a different and better riad, so worthy contacting them by email before going.

In addition to all of the good things said in other reviews (it's a great spot - no need to re-state it), this place has what I found to be the ideal location in the medina. It's close to the blue gate, so you have easy access to taxis, etc, and it's positioned between the 2 main roads in the... More

Could only say positive things about this place. The actual accommodation was amazing and clean. Each morning we got breakfast (even when we had to get up early to leave for day tours). And it wasn't just any breakfast, it was a table full of fruits, coffee, tea, breads, spreads and various other Moroccan foods. Steven was most helpful with... More

experience a different culture from the comfort of this riad. In the medina you are a short walk away from all the sights that scare or interest you. Great position, friendly,hands on owner,not luxurious but if you want all that go to the Hilton.

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at this wonderful guest house situated within an easy walk of Bab Boujaloud and the local restaurants. Mohamed the manager speaks very good English and is a gold mine of useful information on where to go in the medina. The owner, Steve, is a lovely chap and also a great source of local knowledge for... More

Steve the owner, is an expat who knows exactly what travellers need. Above all things honesty. He got a reliable driver to pick me up from train station. He explained clearly how to find your way around the old city in Fez. He told of 2 restaurants that do not overcharge and give good quality food. The beds are very... More

We found it by chance and it was a great surprise for us. We planned to stay one night, and ended up staying three. The breakfast is great, the riad very clean and quiet, the staff is very helpful, and Steve is a great host. Whithin that budget, we absolutly recommend it.

Just returned home from a fantastic week away in Fes. Dar Houdou was a welcoming and comfortable environment. Steve was an excellent host and very knowledgeable about the local area. Breakfast was first class with fresh breads and pancakes each day and fresh orange. The house is very clean and comfortable and maintained to a high standard by Steve's staff;... More
