We choose this Riad based on purely Tripadvisor reviews. The pictures looked really nice and the location seemed closed enough to the Medina yet not smack in the center of all the action. After making the booking via an online booking platform, I got an email from the Riad confirming the stay. We booked the "Diamond Room" which is the... More

I stayed for four nights at Riad le Calife after spending a few grueling days in the desert. I was tired and needed to rest and have a good meal. The rooms are beautifully decorated with a great use of color. Immediately inviting and cozy. The roof top view was astounding. Every evening I would go up at 7pm for... More

Always there to help us to have a wonderful day with plenty of precious tips. They share their passion for Fes with us and make our stay very special. The staff is also very... More

A friend told us about this riad and I am so glad we chose to stay here in Fes! The owners Yasmine and Alexandre were so welcoming. Yasmine suggested us to take a tour with Hassian, he took us on a 5+ hour tour of Fes during Ramadan! We learned so much, he was an amazing guide! We also took... More

The riad is a jewel run by very friendly and knowledgeable couple, Alexander and Jasmine. The riad has a wonderful courtyard, art piece rooms with lots of attention given to details and decoration. The terrace for breakfast and chilling out has wonderful city views. The riad is few minutes walk from all activities but far from the noise but not... More

An amazing place to stay! Yasmine, Alexandre, and the entire Riad Le Calife team treated us like family. Their attention to anything we could possible need was impeccable and went above and beyond any of our expectations. The Riad itself is gorgeous and tranquil. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and ornately decorated, and the rooftop terrace is a wonderful... More

Our stay at Riad Le Calife was short but so, so incredible. My friend and I went on a 5d/4n desert tour (which was also awesome!) and we were only able to stay in Fes one night. Everyone at Riad Le Calife treated us like family and made us truly welcome. From the initial email conversations and their ability to... More

I simply cannot recommend this hotel enough. The Riad le Calife was the pinnacle of all of the hotels that we stayed in across Morocco. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning, and intimate. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful, going above and beyond to help their guests in every aspect of their stay. Before we even arrived, Fatima-Zahra was... More
