In the heart of the labyrinth that is the Fes medina (make sure you have a guide to get there or you will get hopelessly lost), this peaceful haven provides large well appointed rooms, huge bathrooms, friendly helpful staff, good food and lovely atmosphere. There is a nice courtyard pool but it does tend to be cold. Some solar heating... More

Being our first time in Morocco, we had no idea what to expect. Upon arrival a porter came to pick us up at one of the entrances to the medina to help us with our bags. The medina is a labyrinth of small streets which can be very difficult to navigate. However, if you pay attention to your surroundings and... More

Wow! This place is gorgeous and the service is amazing. First of all, this place is in the heart of the Fes medina. Yes. You probably will get lost as there are more than 9,400 streets in this small town. If you're ok with an adventure, get nuts! However, if you'd prefer not to get lost, they have porters on... More

An absolute beautiful place, very finely decorated, with a marvelous staff, discreet, but always present to answer all your expectations. Special thanks to Amina who is leading the Team with great harmony. The room, with a ceiling of min. 5m high and an exquisite decoration, transports you a couple of centuries in time. And the food, whether breakfast or dinner... More

We arrived late at night and were met at the edge of the Medina by a friendly Hotel worker who showed us to the Hotel. The staff were welcoming and we had nice food at the resturant throughout our stay. Nice pool to cool off in after a day of sightseeing. Lovely areas to relax around the Hotel. Amazing balcony...

A great choice to stay in Fès! Be sure to have someone to guide you to the door: it's not easy to find your way in the old Medina! The interiors are magnificent, the rooms big, clean and cozy. The bathroom was the best we had during our trip - super big shower! Be sure to enjoy a tea by... More

This riad is absolutely beautiful and the rooms are even better- very high end and extremely comfortable. The roof terrace is unbelievable (we loved having coffee out there in the morning.) However, I chose this riad over others based on it winning an award for customer service. As soon as we arrived, we were very confused by this, as the... More

It was a privilege to stay in this Riad for 4 nights during the summer. The staff are excellent, the rooms are stunning and the pool area is so relaxing. It is difficult to find within the medina but the staff will help you if you get lost. I can't wait to come back.

This riad is a stunner. Sometimes find the design of riads to be too busy. The interiors of this sprawling residence are calm and muted so you can really take in how extraordinary the architecture is. The refurbishment is a real achievement. The pool area is a delight. I think it is in the best part of the medina aesthetically... More

It was one of the most beautiful hotel/riad I have ever been to! And I have traveled a lot! Amazing hospitality, great people, beautiful hotel/room and decor. Very delicious food and breakfast! Very close to everything you need to see in Fez. Highly recommended.
