The RIad is amazing. It has been beautifully renovated in a manner that is true to its historic roots but is also fashionable and comfortable. We were on our honeymoon; so, we splurged for the Diamond Room. As my wife said, it is probably the nicest room we will ever stay in. You feel like you are staying in a... More

I do not know what we would have done without Alex and Yasmine. They were phenomenal hosts and it was such a pleasure to be guests in their home. Our plane to Morocco was an hour late; this caused us to miss our train. We missed the high speed train and ended up in Fes two hours late. We emailed... More

My fiancee and I stayed at Riad Le Calife for four nights in early May 2010, and we have been raving about it ever since. We cannot imagine how you could improve upon the service provided by Alex and Yasmine Lecomte, who I believe are also the proprietors in addition to running the riad themselves. The phrase that comes to... More

The Riad Calife is an absolute gem (pardon the pun - the rooms are all named after precious stones) in the old old town of Fes. Arriving after a long and very hot train journey from Tanger, we were met at the station by a driver with a carefully printed sign, and driven to a small taxi rank by the... More

My partner and I stayed at Riad le Calife in Fes for 3 nights in July 2010 in the Diamond Suite - the best suite with amazing painted wooden ceiling, tiled floors and arches. We were very pleased with the room which was extremely spacious, light filled, pleasantly airconditioned and relaxing in colour. We very much enjoyed our stay -... More

We went for the first time in Morocco at the end of June and we spent 3 nights at Riad Le Calife. After walking through few narrows streets (typical in Fes) from the main square next to Cinema Amal, Jasmine introduced us to this stunning place. At a first glance you are simply impressed and only little by little you... More

What a fantastic Riad! From the moment we arrived, the service was outstanding. The room (Topaz Room) was delightful, and location splendid, right outside the medina but without the noisy traffic, and with the best views of the Medina on the roottop terrace. Highly recommended for those wishing to experience Fes

This was our first stay coming out of Mali and we found it to be a sanctuary! The owners are fabulous and will do anything to make your stay fantastic. The food was excellent.

Yasmine, Alex & Darwin are the best thing to happen to Fez (particularly in the somewhat stressful Medina). They have done a phenomenal job with setting up their casa/villa/hotel for guests. I wish I owned a place like Riad Le Calife. Highly recommended for the price, amenities, location and the company
