What more can I say than wow. This riad is simply unbelievable, from the friendly and extremely helpful owner, Karim, to the hilarious and thoughtful Sufian, this place is not only a work of art in-and-of-itself, but teeming with life. The architecture is stunning, and every step you take feels incredible, lush, unbelievable. This was my first time in Morocco,... More

If you enjoy friendly service and feeling like part of the family, you'll love this place. Nothing is too much trouble, and I found the advice from Abdo extremely useful. The house has been decorated beautifully in Morrocan style, and is a little oasis situated in the Medina in the old city. The wifi actually works, for those who like... More

Abdo, Soufyane and Meryam run a brilliant little family Ryad deep in the medina in the old city. The decoration is tasteful and authentic and their friendly service second to none. Breakfast is generous and incorporates amazing home cooking.

Dar Hafsa is a fantastic choice for a trip into Fes. The owner, Abdul Kareem, is super friendly and helpful and will make your stay in Fes a very enjoyable one, whether traveling solo or in a group. He'll also arrange for transportation to and from the airport. The riad itself is gorgeous and very well made and the rooms... More

We had a wonderful experience during our one-night stay at Dar Hafsa. If we had more time, we would have loved to stay longer! We were in touch with Abdul who was very prompt with e-mail replies and easily reached by phone prior to our arrival. We were given instructions to take a cab to Bab Boujloud where Soufyane promptly... More

We had an excellent time at Dar Hafsa! The owner, Kareem, went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable, even coordinating tours and plans for us after leaving the city. The staff (we <3 Soufyane!) are friendly, interesting and totally fluent in English. We will certainly stay here again if we return to Fez!

My wife and I stayed here in June 2016. We decided to get the car to pick us up at the airport, which was great. There was a driver and car waiting for us when we arrived with a sign. They drove us to the Medina, which was pretty far and totally worth the 15 euros extra. The owner, Abdul... More

We chose this riad because of it's excellent reviews, and we weren't disappointed. It has wonderful traditional decorations, a lovely roof terrace, and is centrally located in the medina, but just off the main thoroughfare so that it is quiet. It is incredible value for the price. But the best thing of all is the staff. My husband was sick... More

What a delightful experience we had staying in Fes at Dar Hafsa. Abdul Karim is a warm host, with a terrific property in an ideal location inside the medina close to the "blue gate". We have stayed at other dars (lg homes) and riads in Fes and other parts of Morocco. Dar Hafsa receives our unreserved highest rating for the... More

Great location, quiet at night, lovely roof top terrace for when you want to unwind from the insanity of the medina. As a single traveller I really appreciated the personal touch the owner and his family and staff showed me. They were always there with mint tea, engaging conversation and directions, they found me a driver to see the sites... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Hafsa is a traditional 19th century Morocccan home. Recently renovated, the house is a beautiful example of fine Moroccan craftsmanship. The ornate tile work and painted doors reflect the best in cultural design. An open floor plan with multiple indoor balconies gives the house a cozy feeling, but not at the expense of privacy. A roof-top terrace offers an expansive view of the Fes Medina and the Riff Mountains.This lovely accommodation is seven minutes from the Blue Gate (Bab Bouljoud), and a simple right-hand turn from the main street (derb sidi safi souiket ben safi talaa sghira) and souk. It is situated on a quiet, clean byway. Those looking for a more authentic Fes stay will find themselves a reasonable distance from hustle and bustle of the shopping and trade.You will feel welcome at Dar Hafsa by the family who manages the guest house, Mariam and Aziz and their parents. They are friendly and generous. English, French, and Arabic languages are spoken well, along with some Spanish and German. Your comfort and satisfaction is assured, and the family can share their local knowledge to enrich your stay. ... more   less
