Spent two nights in this heavenly oasis and loved every second. As we were coming down the quiet alley we did not know what to expect. And when the giant door opened and as we entered into the courtyard, we were instantly amazed with the size and beauty of the courtyard, with the lush garden and striking tile work all... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and were able to experience the wonders of staying in an authentic palace like ours.

A family visit in June of this year and this hotel was simply the best! It is a real genuine restored palace just inside the medina and although it is not that easy to get around this old old city with tiny streets, this hotel was only a few steps away from a main parking. The staff couldn't be more... More

We spent 3 perfect nights at this gorgeous riad. We found the service impeccably warm, our suite spacious yet cozy and a cooking lesson with the chef wonderful. Fez is the most fascinating city - the sights and smells and people are almost overwhelmingly colorful. The Palais Amani provided an oasis of calm to reflect on our experience. Because we... More

If the din, dust, and congestion is getting to you, you will need an oasis in the guise of an opulent room decorated with mosaics, stained glass and berber rugs.

My partner and I stayed at Palais Amani for two days that we were in Fez. From the moment we arrived, we were completely charmed by the grace and beauty of the space and the helpfulness of the staff. Breakfasts on the terrace were ample and delicious, suppers in the courtyard were equally satisfying. A tranquil complement to the vibrant... More

A magnificent tranquil oasis in the chaos of the Fez Medina. A little difficult to find, and access is difficult, parking non-existant despite their claims; but once you arrive the contrast is amazing. Our ground floor suite was delightful, if a little less private than i'd expect, but the proximity to the courtyard made it a magnificent place to retire... More

This really is an amazing place to stay; down one of the streets of the medina (although you can get very close by taxi), Palais Amani somehow manages to create a peaceful and relaxing oasis with the busy medina just outside.
