Riad Verus is a wonderful place and well located. The main building has been restored with little details,and make them really nice looking.The rooms are lovely,spacious,clean and really tastefully decorate.We never expect find a place like this where the owners make you feel like at "home" and not like tourist.The atmosphere at Riad Verus is very good and the owners treat you really well and make you easy to meet another guest at the common areas on the roof and downstairs,I specially enjoy the moments I had at the roof with another costumers,speaking sitting and having a nice tea...My brief is nice place,charmy owners and affordable place,definitely recommend this place.

I read the rave reviews so went along for to see for myself.you enter and are immediately felt welcome.the courtyard is bright and youseff is friendly.i did find it strange that you could not book a dorm bed online.you had to book the tripple room which seems odd.so i arrived with no reservation and was lucky.at 195 dirams i thought it was overpriced.the " bed room was very nice.ample space and bright with en suite bathroom.it was very cold though.the breakfast in my opinion although better than the average riad,is served too late.if you have to get transprt yto your next destination,you miss it. 9.30 till 11.30,the reason so it does not disturb other guests.all well and good,but riads are like echo chambres at the best of times.the pannoramic virw from the terrace is lovely.

Thanks for the review and we are pleased you were made to feel so welcome on entering and you found the rooms spacious, liked how it was ensuite and bright. The price you charged was with tax and breakfast and you could have requested a packed breakfast like so many other travellers do who get the bus the next day. I was aware you were leaving on an 11am bus so that would have given ample time to have had breakfast but maybe your plans changed last minute. So pleased you liked the terrace and also the friendly staff members.

My partner and I had a wonderful 3 night stay in this riad in Fes's Medina. It's a family run place, which means it has a friendly, relaxed feel, and as guests we were made to feel very welcome.

The building has been lovingly restored by its owners Nor and Leanora, with lots of lovely authentic touches like ornate plasterwork and brass lanterns - it's a real treat at an affordable price. Our room was tastefully decorated and very clean. We especially liked the communal sitting areas downstairs and on the roof: they had a good atmosphere and made it easy to meet other guests.

The people who own the riad speak great English - Leanora is British - which made our stay run smoothly whenever we wanted to arrange excursions or find out about anything. The other thing is that the medina can be confusing at first... however, Riad Verus is well located not far from Batha - and is helpfully signposted so we could easily find our way back without needing to ask the staff to help us out!

We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting Fes!

Riad Verus was an incredible base for my wife and I to experience the romance of Fes. The rooms are spacious with impeccably clean bathrooms, and terraces that enable you to sample the beauty of the surrounding neighbourhood. Leonora and her team are first class hosts who are wonderfully genuine in the welcome they extend and the effort they put in to make your stay a memorable one. Can't wait until we have the opportunity to return.

Had a wonderful stay and it was so kind that the staff went out of their way to guide us through the maze that are the streets to their favourite restaurant (a local, non touristy, also trip advisor rated restaurant called Sekaya). Jo (joseph, or yousef?) even picked us up from the restaurant to guide us back to Riad Versus. Fantastic !!!

I found the staff here very friendly and helpful, without being in your face over pushing trips/excursions.

The Riad itself is nicely decorated and there are communial spaces downstairs and a great roof terrace, with some nice views of the Medina and surrounding area.

The directions given from the Rad provided an easy arrival and i was greeted with a welcomed mint tea, this was a nice touch after a long train ride.

The bedroom was spacious and clean and had everything you would require. There was no issue with noise and i had a great nights sleep.

I didnt have the breakfast as i was leaving early and i think it starts at 9.30am.

It is located near one of the main gates of the medina and i was provided with good instructions on getting to it and then advice for getting around once there.

I would recommend this Riad as a place to stay.

One note is the city tax that i didnt know about and wasnt made aware upon booking, but its only an extra £4-i think?
