Riad Hala meets you at the entrance to the Fes medina and takes you abd your luggage through the paths to the hotel. Behind the simple wall, a wood door opens to the inner courtyard of a gorgeous Arabic home - back in time but with the comfort of modern air conditioning and dish tv with channels from the middle east, europe and asia. Gracious hosts, 24-hour receptionist and gracious breakfast... And roof top terrace.
The hotel will arrange for a guide (low fee well worth the cost - there are 9,000 streets in the Fes medina so the coops are not easy to find without a guide) through the medina to government protected cooperatives with authentic work and fair wages for the artisans who created the items by hand - metal, ceramic, leather, wood, argun oil , fabrics and carpets. No pressure to buy and opportunities to watch the artisabs at work.
Although Fes is a major modern city, the old medina inside the ancient walls feels like a warm, welcoming community where people lice, not a bazaar for touristst.
