We spent about ten days in Morocco, we started in Fez and stayed here for the first part. This hotel and specifically Said the manager provided us with better service than when we stayed at the Four Seasons in Marrakech. We were met outside the Riad and walked in they carried our luggage for us. Once in the Riad we...

So first and foremost, the pictures don't do the Riad justice--its is beautiful and a lovingly restored Imam's home. My room was breathtaking and very comfortable with a big bed and lovely rain shower that washed away the muck of camping in the desert. Second, the staff was impeccable. From the attentive breakfast staff to the manager and owner, Sayed,...

Make sure you call the Riad as you approach the medina and they will send out staff to bring you and your luggage into the maze. Once there our host greated us with traditional mint tea and cookies. He then explained the history of the building and gave us a tour before showing us to our beautiful rooms. The restaurant...

I was very sick when I arrived in Fez and the staff was incredibly nice and attentive. The room itself was nice, wifi worked in the rooms and generally quiet. Beautiful riad. As two female travelers, we felt most comfortable when we had a local boy from the hotel escort us to and from the hotel at night. It's in...

This place is so incredible. We were a little lost and a local boy had overheard us talking about this place so he led us there through the winding streets. As soon as we stepped across the threshold it was like we were in another world. The attention to detail, the calm ambience, the lighting, the friendly staff. The architecture....

And don't forget to ask to the staff from the hotel to pick you up, once you arrive. That will be saving you from the boys who want to guide you.

Yes, we can arrange your pick up from the train station, all you need is to inform us about your arrival details (exact arrival time and destination that you are coming from)

Hello Georgina,

October is still a pritty nice temperature in Fes, especially inside the Medina. It is a exquisite riad and all the rooms have airconditioning which can easily be used as heating if it should be chilly. Have a great trip. Inge
