Ryad 53 has a prime location. You aren't directly in the rabbit's warren that is Fes, but you are just on its doorstep. When I contacted Jean-Luc for directions, they were spot on, which is a first in Morocco.
The room we booked, the turquoise room, was having some water issues so Jean-Luc offered us another one that was next door which was very large. We had a few hiccups, like in the middle of taking a shower, the power to the whole room went out due to a breaker acting up, but Jean Luc and his trusty assistant Mohemmad were on the case right away. They got the main lights working again, and just the bathroom ones were not working, but the next day all seemed back to normal.
Also Mohemmad made our stay really nice - he was very organized with breakfasts, the bill, arranging a driver for a trip up to Azrou and made sure the driver took us to the types of places we were interested in. He was a star.
The room was lovely and I enjoyed it very much. The shower had plenty of hot water, and the bed was extremely comfy.
