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

The hosts were so welcoming and helpful, arranging trips and meals for us and welcoming us with afternoon tea. We loved the room, the location, the breakfast and the dinners here. The staff was fantastic. It is hard to imagine any place in the world having better service and warmer hosts.

This is one of the best Riads around the Medina of Fez. The owner and the staff are very friendly and outgoing. Yasmine & Alex (the owners) and Fatima-Zahra (the desk staff, not the cook) are fluent in French and English and they all seem to genuinely enjoy talking to and entertaining their guests. They all do a very good... More

We loved staying at this riad (sort of like an inn in the states). The hospitality was amazing - everything others have said in the reviews are true. We took the cooking class with Fatima that was great and went on a tour of the medina organized through the riad that we highly recommend. Everything is beautiful - the rooms... More

In all honesty, I have no idea where to even start with this review. And I don't think I can even call this a "review," but more of an account of our days staying with family. Yasmine and Alex, in every sense of the word, define hospitality. They are two of the most beautiful souls we have ever met: warm,... More

This will be one of the best accommodations you'll experience in your life. The hospitality is out of this world and you can truly feel the sincerity in their kindness. Everyone's feedback is 100% accurate - amazing decor, comfort, service, food, etc. etc. etc. One thing I can add...I was sick with a slight fever and a bad cold one... More

Every aspect of this stay was as promised. The décor and ambience were luxurious and comfortable. We were upgraded to the Amethyst Room. The owners and staff were friendly and supportive even before we arrived. Very helpful emails started arriving shortly after our Expedia reservation was made. The food was delicious and served on time. We could not be happier,... More

If you are looking for a special boutique Riad for your stay in Fes, you could not do better than Raid Le Calife. My wife and I spent a wonderful week here with our five year old daughter, staying in the sumptuous Diamante Room.

We loved Riad Le Calife! We went for our 20th year anniversary trip to Morocco. The riad is amazing, you feel like you are in a movie setting, typical Moroccan arquitecture, furniture, carpets, ambiance. The room was huge and very comfortable. A beautiful renovated riad. We had dinner at the terrace. Beautiful at sunset. Dinner was typical morrocan food and... More
