Loved this place, it is one of the coolest places we've ever stayed. It is beautiful, historic, peaceful and incredibly comfortable. The service was excellent, food was delicious, rooms are quiet, rooftop terrace is fantastic. This is an oasis and absolutely worth it! I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. At Bensouda the staff move at your pace. You can decide when you want everything and the staff work around you. The rooms are huge and delightful. Very clean and beautifully decorated. The rooftop is the best in fes with amazing views and Arabian style sails for shade. The pool was perfect on... More

What an amazing place to stay! We have just returned after a great week together with our 3 adult children. Such a privilege to be able to live for a week in the beautiful Dar Bensouda! The architecture is stunning and sensitively restored. There is a quiet, calming atmosphere everywhere and many bedrooms are really spacious with high ceilings and... More

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. For example when we asked for the recipe for the delicious welcome biscuits, the concierge interviewed the chef and translated the recipe from arabic into english for us. When we still didn't understand fully, the chef invited us into the kitchen... More

This Riad is definitely a great choice and one of the most beautiful small hotels in the middle of the old Medina in Fez. A "Riad" in Marocco is usually known as a small historic guest house or mansion which was at one time used as a primary residence of a wealthy family. The Dar Bensouda is some 300 years... More

Dar Bensouda is a stunning Riad. Stayed there two nights and would recommend it to anyone else staying in Fes. The rooms are luxurious and very clean. The service is very professional and the hotel itself is renovated to a very high standard. The breakfast was very fresh with the usual selection of bread, pancakes, fresh fruit, tea/coffee etc served... More

We stayed in the Deluxe suite which was spacious and luxurious. The host was friendly and attentive to our needs. The welcome drinks and biscuits were delicious! We stayed a total of 2 nights in Fes and ended up eating dinner at the hotel on our first night- which was fantastic. Highly recommend the Chicken with lemon and olive Tajine.... More
