...we was with four fotografers stand in this wonderfull house for a week ... we was realy suprised about this wonderfull house in the middle of fes finest medina and we have best rememberings at the house, fes and the frindly people there... It`s an old marrocan style, build and renoviered new with original tadelakt and fine antiquitäts everywhere inside ... a bit like a palaice for us four ... and a big plaice on the roof ... with a summershower on the housetop outside and a gread breakfast made by huda every morning... fresh eggs and orangejouce and traditional bread and and and ... the bakery in the street smells all the morning so tasti and the hamam in the neighbourhood is also great ... the shower and toilet inside are clean and tadelaktmade ... !!! WOU !!!
- a bit difficult for us germanonces to understand the culture of marrocan people ... not unpossible but not so easy to go as woman alone though fes ... but with huda and joe in the house we realy feel well and care ... thanks once more for this great plaice where we could stand ... steffi

We stayed in Dar El Ma in March 2011. It was really happy time there.
This place is wonderful and the roof terrace is excellent!
Our room was fantastic!
Thanks for all who works there!

Dar El Ma is the perfect place to stay in Fes.

Location-wise, it is in a good neighbourhood and merely a stone's throw away from the hustle and bustle of the medina.

The property itself is stunning. The owners have done an outstanding job renovating the riad. Exploring the several floors of Dar El Ma can be quite the adventure! There is a washer, a dryer, a Turkish bath (one indoors and one on the roof), and a Berber bed in each room.

There are only two rooms in the riad. For two of the three nights we stayed there, we were the only guests. It was like having a huge house to ourselves.

Houda prepared great breakfasts for us.

I would highly recommend Dar El Ma.

Dar el Mar is such a lovely house that combines comfortable living quarters with an excellent Medina position in a real and thriving neighbourhood. We were welcomed by Houda who provided an excellent breakfast and gave us good advice about where to visit etc. It really felt like excellent value for money as we could self cater if we choose and as the house is beautifully decorated and comfortable yet at a very reasonable price. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

We spent 3 nights in this beautifully restored traditional riad. All credit to the owners for the amazing work they've done!
Rooms are spacious, very well decorated and bed comfortable. Superb views from the roof terrace.
Special thanks to Houda for her kindness and lovely breakfast and Aziz for guiding us through the medina. We hope to come back again in the future.

Walking into Dar El Ma was like walking into our own private palace!
All our senses were up for a treat: It looks absolutely stunning with all those jolly colours, lovely Houda makes most amazing mint teas and delicious breakfests, at the background you can hear calming rush of the medina.
And then when everything got little bit darker and noises quiten up I sneeked up the roof top terace and had the most liberating shower under the stary Fez sky.
It is princ/ess retreat!

We had the most amazing stay at Dar El Ma. Its the most charming place to stay; full of character. After a long day exploring the buzz and bustle of the souk, you walk through the front door and are immediately transported into a cool calm atmosphere a million miles away from everthing, such a relaxing place to rest up and recharge the batteries. We particularly enjoyed unwinding on the roof top terrace in the evening and listening to the Souk come to life. We'll definitely be back again soon!
