Dar Hafsa is a beautiful Dar in a central location in the medina. The rooms were great and very comfortable especially after travelling for over 30 hours. The best thing about the Dar was the staff. The Dar is a family run business staffed by the owner and his children - all were very friendly and very happy to help...

My friend and I stayed at the Dar Hafsa for 2 nights. We had no problems booking and organising our accommodation here. Upon arrival we were met at the entrance to the Medina and were escorted to the Dar, which is only a short walk from the entrance. We stayed in a twin share room, which was very cosy and...

Dar Hafsa is a beautiful riad. Its rooms are comfortable, nicely decorated and there's a plentiful supply of hot water. Karim, Aziz and Mohammed were very friendly and always willing to offer directions and recommendations. The food was also delicious - the best I ate in Morocco. However, it should be noted that Karim appears to make a point of...

This is a wonderful riad located right near the Blue Gate. The rooms are spotless, showers clean and hot water/ac worked perfectly. The best thing about this riad though is hands down the staff. They were kind, overly generous and hospitable, and made our stay in Fes easy, comfortable, and enjoyable. Even though they were observing Ramadan, at their 'breakfast',...

Absolutely loved staying here, the atmosphere, the service, the food. The friendly family were amazing and caring, we felt safe, and the recommendations they gave were very much appreciated. It was lovely to come back from the crowded full on streets of the Fes Medina and feel so at home. I really can't rave enough about Dar Hafsa, I would...

My partner and I recently stayed here - a great riad. The service was impeccable and the rooms were great. We stayed in a twin room the first night because the double room was booked out. We then moved into the double room for two nights. The double room was as it appears on this site. There is even hot...

Friendly staff look after you while staying in Fes, and can advise and organise day trips, shopping, restaurants and anything else you might be looking to do while in Morocco. Highly recommended if looking for an authentic Riad stay.

We had mixed feelings about our stay. While the hotel was very clean, beautiful, and had a great breakfast, we felt uncomfortable at times with the owner and his son. We were a little bit turned off when the son was speaking poorly about some nationalities (Russians and Bulgarians, for example). Also, they were both very attentive to our needs,...

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
