It is a new refurbished Riad with a very good taste. We stay just one night but we just can say that our stay it’s been amazing. Excellent personal, excellent location nearby the medina, excellent rooms, excellent restaurant. We really recommend it!

Eventhough we could not stay at Riad Alya, because it was fully booked when we knocked at the door, Jamil, on of the Employees, went out of his way to find us a pleasant alternative, walked us to the other Riad and also organized our airport and bus transfers for the next day. I was also allowed to print my boarding pass there and we could transfer all our photos as this was the only place with working computers and printers. We decided to come back for dinner and had the best Moroccan salads of our whole trip. The chicken tajine was also exceptional. Everything was explained to us beautifully and we felt like staying with friends! The next time we are in Fez we will definitely book in advance to stay here! Thanks Jamil for your exceptional customer service!

it is a recently renewed ancient Riad in the Medina near to Batha. it's not in the caos of the Souk but very near to go by feet! the place is magic...the suites are amazing and the rooms are very nice!
they serve you a huge and luxurious breakfast every morning in the beatiful patio that is inside the Riad. it is also possible to have meals and spa.
the service is perfect and kind! we have never seen such clean rooms!
really a perfect place to stay!

I am Italian (from Milan), but I am writing this in english because I think I could reach a wider audience with my review.

I found out this RIad almost unknown in internet (because it's new), thanks to my cousin that was here for a tea last summer in her visit to Fez. She adviced me how nice and relatively cheap it was, for the palace and everything she could had a glance to. But I did not think so nice!

My room was Suite Casablanca, so big, with a giant Jacuzzi, mosaique and silk everywhere. Never been in a place like this before. They also have a terrace where you can have breakfast with a beatiful view of Medina (see pic attached)

The service was excellent: 5 people just for me and my wife that maybe were one of the first couple to have the occasion to sleep there.

Also breakfast and lunch a dinner (that I tried twice) are definitely good and in a beautiful surrounding.

I also tried hammam with gommage and massage. Very clean and new. And I had an intersting cooking class.

Definitely worth it: now it is really a nice value for the money as I could see comparing it to other Riad in Fez.

Fez is wonderful: if you need a good guide (and you need 'cause it' a labyrinth out of the Ruad) ask the manager: she found me an excellent guide with perfect english and literature teacher... He brought me to great shop except for one: do not buy carpets in the Medina! I told YA. Buy scarves, buy tea, buy plates, buy leather, not carpets if you are not an expert. They are too good at selling, you will never get a bargain!
