We spent 3 nights in the guesthouse, definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The first impression was of the beauty of the ryad itself, decorated with great style and taste, a calm and soothing environment just next to the main entrance of the medina (Bab Bou Jloud, with many comfy eating places). There are few and big rooms, two rooftop terraces and arabic style seating rooms with a library, all of which contributes to the relaxed atmosphere. What really brings the ryad the life is the kind attention of its staff, always willing to assist you in your needs, or just available for a enlightening chat. They serve delicious typical meals for breakfast and dinner (couscous and tajin), with fresh quality ingredients. Also they can organise tours for the guests with highly recommendable and trustworthy guides.
We booked the suite sable, which is very big, has a jacuzzi and a view over the first rooftop terrace. We were able to park our rental car inside a semi official garage across the street (independent from the ryad). This wouldn't have been possible with any of the ryads hidden in the labyrinth of the medina. The car proved useful to visit the middle Atlas (Azrou, sources of Oum Er Rbia), Meknes and the Roman ruins of Volubilis.
Truly a hotel I would recommend, I feel lucky to have known it and enjoyed this great time with the people there. I would repeat without hesitation.

We stayed in the Suite of Ryad 53, room was very spacious and quiet, beautifully decorated in every corners and most welcomed service did make us feel at home on our 1st time trip in Morocco.
We have chosen this Ryad not only by the beauty of itself but also the location, it is so well situated that we had no problem getting there on our late arrival around midnight.
The owner waited us and prepared us a warm tajin in the most relaxing atmosphere.
The next day they also arranged a wonderful guide who could take us around and explained the architecture of Fes which I specifically requested for. We felt secure even though we had no idea where we were in the labyrinth of Fes medina, but it didn't take me long when I realized how lucky to stay at Ryad 53 which is in an excellent location by taxi, because some Ryad I saw in medina had absolutely no access other than walking through small passages.
I would definitely go back there if I get another chance to travel.

We stayed in the Pistachio suite which was really the highlight of our trip in Fes! Very spacious 40sqm suite with massive king baldaquin bed and superbe bathroom with X-large bath - great for young couples willing to experience an authentic riad experience and enjoy a stay as pachas... Cecile the owner, who's a interior designer, did a fantastic job at renovating this amazing riad. Her hospitality was second to none, breakfast was very enjoyable on the rooftop terrace overlooking the medina, and great food in the evening too with nice french/morrocan wine available. The location of the riad was excellent too, at the doorstep of Bab Boujeloud the main gate to the old medina. We also were recommended a guide to explore the mazes of the medina which was recommended by Celine, something we did on the first day and should have done at the beginning of our stay as opposed to Marrakech, Fes' medina is extremely difficult to get around. I would highly recommend this riad to anyone willing to stay in a beautiful riad at a very reasonable rate.

Room Tip: Get the Pistachio Suite!

I had one of the best time in this Riad while touring Morocco for 35 days. After a long journey I've felt that this Riad was a perfect choice during my 4 days in Fes: great location (in the entrance of medina in Batha area), cozy ambience, clean, beautiful/well decorated, confortable room and a wonderful home cooking. Cecile, the owner, was extremely helpful with everything I needed inside/outside the medina. I'll be back for sure. Insh'allah!

We really enjoyed our stay at Ryad 53. The location on the edge of the Medina is perfect, and the owner is very attentive and helpful. We stayed in the Pistache room, which is enormous and beautiful. The cool, quiet and relaxing atmosphere makes an excellent contrast to the bustle of the Medina. Definitely recommended!
