Nice, clean, Riad close to medina. Great breakfast and Hazm our host was especially helpful. Mint tea upon request served with pleasure. AC worked well and someone was on hand to answer any questions or give directions.

We had a very pleasant stay at this Riad. Its very easy to find, near from the boarders of the MEdina. Hamsa the recepcionist is very helpfull, and help us arranging our trip to the desert and other things. The room is very spacious but need some maintence. The breakfast is simple but good.

Well we absolutely lived staying at this Riad. The room was amazing, very romantic and spacious. The bed was made up every day, the towels changed in the bathroom and everything was done to make sure we were comfortable. Hamsa was so lovely with us and treated me like an older sister, joking with us but making sure we had... More

Nice atmosphere and helpful staff. The riad is close to the centre but also far enough away from the medina to be quiet at night. It's full of character, but like most riads rather dark because all the bedrooms face onto the courtyard. The bathrooms could do with a little modernisation (and for some reason toilet rolls always seem to... More

What a great place! The France/Moroccan owner is really nice! He even has red wine!!! We felt really welcome. The food is also really great and good priced. The rooms are big and in a lovely style! Only our bedroom had a smelly problem. But the tried everything to solve this.

Riad l'Artiste is on a quiet street close to the Old City Medina (about 7-10mins walk). The raid is stunning to look at, clean, and the rooms (Africaine, Laura Hind) were spacious and well presented and both had (much-needed) A/C! Hotel manager and his assistant were very friendly and went out of their way to make our visit pleasurable (i.e.... More

Location- simply discoverable, secure parking nearby. Very helpful and pleasant host. Marvelous and cozy house, big rooms, ultra clean. Amazing details, very romantic. A large roof terrace with beautiful views over the medina. Super!

Close your eyes and fly away on a magic carpet to the land of the Secret Palace - Riad L'Artiste - the "Hidden Jewel" of Fez. And here, while you chill, your senses will be transported to higher levels of perception, and sensibility. And, I must add, once experienced, never forgotten.

We had a lovely stay at this riad. Our room was incredibly big and beautifully decorated and the breakfast each morning was lovely. Nice roof terrace. It's in a good location, close to the medina, although it is on the opposite side to Bab Bou Jeloud (the Blue Gate) which is somewhat considered the 'main' enterance to the medina. The... More

Very nice and helpful staff. Location in the medina, close to its border, so it's easier to find. Breakfast somewhat poor by European standards (no sausages, eggs, or omelette). No elevator, just narrow stairs (this might be difficult for the people who are not physicaly fit...), but this is because the building is not modern!
