“Nice riad with helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stayed at this riad for 3 nights in a very large room overlooking the atrium. We had breakfastin the riad and they was very good. Unfortunately the shower plumbing leaked badly but we were allowed to use the shower in the adjacent room that was attached to our room in the event a larger family used this room. The location is very good being away from the noise of the medina but not so far away that you could become lost in the maze of narrow streets. The staff was very helpful. We can recommend this riad to travellers to Fez.

Having spent a week at this riad, I guess the biggest drawback is more cultural than anything else, but more about that later. We were a party of 5 so got to see the riad from all angles. The position in the medina (walled city) is excellent, not too far in, and close to the south side Suckts (markets) which in my opinion were the best from an extended stay. The neighbourhood has good restaurants as well. The actual riad is beautiful, although some of the rooms are quite small, and stairs, floors and plumbing need attention. The staff were delightful and very helpful, but 3 out of 5 of us were asked at the last minute to move to the riad next door on the last night to make way for another bigger party! It was a disaster, and left a bitter taste, in what was otherwise a lovely stay.

We loved it. My friend and I stayed in a charming room that was comfortable, quiet and beautiful. Great food and wonderful service. The staff could not have been more helpful, lost our luggage with medicine in it, they called a doctor who came and wrote a prescription that held us over until reunited with luggage.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs, ask for one on main floor

Only 7 rooms in this wonderful Riad in the historic part of Fez, Morocco. Warm reception, caring people work here. I am visiting Morocco as Artist in Residence for the month of May, 2013.
The bed is comfortable, breakfast is served down in the main floor salon. It is a quiet neighbourhood. Internet is available down in this main hall, but not in my room. Guests are welcome to go to the roof terraces. Walking distance to small markets selling jewelry, wood, metal crafts, leather crafts, and much more!

My husband, our 21-year old son and I stayed here our first two nights in Morocco. The stairs were a bit steep for people who have trouble walking, but it was very nice and authentic. Rooms were clean, nice linens, good breakfast, good location, and wi-fi! What's not to love? They were very friendly and I would highly recommend this riad. It is very quiet here, too.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with steps, ask for a lower room.

Excellent Riad to stay in

Location: Great location. Easy to find from the medina entrance gate. A short 2minute walk away from the "little" main street where all the action is happening.

Rooms: Clean, spacious rooms, with AC (which also provides excellent heating in the winter), TV (with English BBC channel!) and luxurious beds. Clean, western style toilets, huge showers with no short supply of hot water.

Service: Great. The Riad manager was MOST helpful during our stay in Fez. He arranged a great English official guide for a half day tour around the Fez medina. He offered to help us organize a tour that went to the desert (which we did not ultimately take up because we were not very interested). He was the MOST helpful and genuine person we met in Morocco. When we had problems fedex-ing our souvenirs back home, by his own initiative he rode the taxi with us to the fedex office and stayed with us to translate until our package was sucessfully processed by fedex. Besides the riad manager, one of the hotel staff named Hicham was most attentive and respectful (from the perspective of 2 ladies travelling together) throughout our stay.

Food: We LOVED the breakfast at the Riad. We were served freshly baked bread rolls and freshly made traditional moroccan crumpets with spreads. Simple but very filling and satisfying. We had dinner there one of the nights. However because we did not pre order, it was just pastilla and salads. Still it was very good. Be mindful however, that dinner is very expensive. The cost of the dinner came as a shock to me when I received the bill at the end of our stay.

I would highly recommend anyone who comes through Fez to stay here. It is inexpensive and you get a great room and great service.
