From the moment you walk into this hotel - Palace, you are treated like royalty. You are seated in the lobby and the staff come to you to check in while you are given a complimentary warm toilette to cleanse your hands and face from your travels. The property is beautiful and you feel as though you are in a... More

I consider this hotel one of my 3 favorites worldwide, out of thousands. It is right inside the old city of Fes, a place I continue to dream about. One of the greatest walking cities in the world. My full review athttp://hooversworld.com/favorite-hotels/

The Palais Jamai is a legend that's losing its charm. Yes, you start your stay by walking into a beautiful tile-decorated lobby and sit down to mint tea, but our premier room showed signs of disrepair. One of the armchairs was missing finials, the other had a rickety leg, the tub handle came off in my hand, a couple of... More

This hotel is the grande dame of Fes hotels and an icon in hotel history: A beautiful old-world grand hotel with a terrific garden and pool. Located above the old medina with breathtaking views of the city. The building and interior exuded history, however a little worn and faded. Room was good size and had a balcony towards the garden...

I don't know why the reviews have been so negative, I loved my stay. The minute we enter, the hotel is full of atmosphere and I feel I am back into time and it is also full of warmth. The lobby is full of carpets, nice seating arrangements and a nice view of the swimming pool. Rooms were okay but... More

The location is excellent, right on the edge of the old city of Fes, an easy walk into the medina and monuments and such. Very adequate free gated parking. Rooms were very nice and service was impeccable, although the price was high, around $190/night. Their classic Moroccan restaurant was recently closed, although the menu from there is available in the... More
