The hotel is average but has a fantastic view over the old city of Fes if you get a room with the city view. The other option is a view with the mountains. It is not close to the main attractions of the city. Hotel itself is above average and needs a little updating especially the furniture and the decor.... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but we took a petit taxi from the medina up here (about 9 dirhams) for some drinks at the end of the day. Beautiful place to get away from all the noises of the old town. Great view on the medina, great to combine with a visit of Borj Nord and the Merinides tower.... More

Les Merinides has a fantastic view over the old city of Fes, but that is from the top of a hill outside the city meaning it is isolated from everything; no shops, no restaurants, and no access to taxis which means that without your own transport it is very difficult to get anywhere.

This hotel has been the worst! Yes they gave me a room on the front side, a room on the backside by the way is not worth any of your money. Unfortunately the room smelled, simply beacause of the old carpets, nothing can beat that moldy smell. THe view is very nice, i guess that is the reason why many... More

Les Mérinides enjoys a proud position overlooking the old city and is a draw for people coming to have drinks and take photographs of the impressive views. I enjoyed my three day stay but when groups were also using the hotel I at times felt marginalised, particularly in the dining room. The staff are pleasant and the accommodation comfortable and...

After climbed the tomb of Merinides for amazing sunset pictures we retired to the hotel bar of Les Merinides. The view of Fes el Bali was breathtaking at sunset and hearing the adhan, call to prayer, was magical. The bar prices are compatible and you wont overpay compared to other bars in Fes (with no view!). i.e., 40 Dhirams for... More

Professional in dealing and the integration of the service. I can say, the hotel is semi integrated has been missing some critical facilities, but at the processing level is good. with experience in handling (reception, requests, and restaurant, laundry facilities, meetings, security) with reasonable prices for the services . There is one problem which is the sound of barking dogs... More

After a long and bumpy motorcycle ride from Chefchaoun, the hotel and it's incredible view were breathtaking! If this place doesn't make you feel royal and special, you need to get out of Morocco! :) Take the quick cab ride down to the Blue Gate for a deeper understanding of what it's like to be in Morocco.

Only spent a few hours here in the bar......great ambiance with fantastic views but oh the service in the bar was third class. The table service waiter was too interested in watching TV thus i repeatedly had to get up and be served at the actual bar [where the barmen was also watching TV or chatting to friends.

Billed as a a five star hotel, I found this hotel a little lacking. More like a four star. It did have great views over the medina, though rooms and decor all could do with a freshen up. Service at breakfast was a little hit and miss with the omelette/ pancake bar forgetting to make order.
