Riad le Calife was our introduction to Fes - and what a wonderful way to be greeted. Nothing was too much trouble for Alex and Yasmine, who have done an incredible job of renovating this beautiful house. The rooms are exquisitely decorated and spotlessly clean. The rest of the staff are smiling, friendly and polite. Alex told us he wanted...

There is little anyone can add to the unanimous praise from other travelers. We stayed 4 nights, including our wedding anniversary, in the Diamond Suite. The riad itself and out room in particular were stunning. Further, the food was wonderful, very important in a city with few dining options. I would, however, appreciate more options for breakfast. This riad is...

We spent four nights here and were very impressed with the owners, Alex and Yasmine, who run an excellent riad. As hosts, they insure that every expectation is met or exceeded. The property is beautiful and very clean - exceeding what we typically experience in the USA. The location is ideal for exploring the medina, do not be put off...

I would agree with previous reviewees and say that this is one of the best Riads we have stayed in, in Morocco. Yasmin and Alex were fantastic hosts and are always willing to help you or answer questions. The room we stayed in was beautiful and they have renovated it with alot of attention to detail. The food was gorgeous...

I was expecting a nice riad from the reviews and pictures that we read/saw before our stay but neither can really do Riad Le Calife justice as it's just beautiful. The rooms are spacious, very well decorated and the attention to detail in the rooms and throughout the riad is just stunning. Yasmine and Alexander are the perfect hosts they...

Five stars does not adequately convey how wonderful and magical this riad was. This was my first trip to Morocco and I booked this hotel given other five star reviews. We were met at the square by their friendly porter who whisked our bags away. Once we wound our way hrough the beautiful and vibrant alleys a hidden door opened...

We could not have imagined a better stay. Very hospitable, great room, and the service was wonderful. It was our first time in Morocco and we had no idea what to expect, they helped us with everything, including getting picked up at the airport, getting a guide for the Medina, where to eat, and getting a taxi. We stayed at...
