Its located just few metres from the main street, from the gate to Medina. its quite and from the main street you have no idea, what can be behind the walls. their owner caught us on the main square, made very good offer, so we went with him and said yes. every room has its own shower and toilet. breakfast was fantastic, the best one we had included in accommodation in morocco. probably its not that cheap, but in the low season, we had good offer for less money. owner is young guy, very fine, speaks so many languages.

I spent one night in Dar Elyasmine. It is a very quiet place and you really appreciate a little bit of silence after having walked around Fez, which is a very crazy and loud city. Dar Elyasmine is a place to enjoy the tranquility every trip needs. I slept in the tent they have upstairs, and even though it was raining it wasnt so cold because they have good blankets. Taking into account the places you may sleep in Marocco, this hotel is one of the best options.

We spent a fantastic 3 nights here in March. The location is great, just off the main street in the Medina although we'd advise getting them to meet you from the main gate (which they do offer) as the side street is well hidden behind a carpet shop! The riad itself is very pretty with lots of mosaic and a small roof terrace with a berber tent. Our room was also very nice. The staff were probably the highlight, always offering mint tea and good advice about things to do. We took them up on their offer of a guide which turned out to be a the best thing we did as he took us far deeper in the medina then we could have dared go by ourselves. We also went shopping in the market one evening with one of the staff who then taught us how to cook a tagine. Also, the breakfasts were delicious! We are all hoping to go back to Fes one day and stay there again!

The place was excellent. From the moment we arrived the staff were incredibly helpful and would always ask if we needed anything. They even offered us dinner on the nights we were there - one night we took them up on the offer and asked if we could help. Mohammed took us round the market and then taught us how to cook the traditional Moroccan dish. All round, a great place to stay, great value for money and an excellent location.

Room Tip: We had a private double.

Initially booked this hostel/riad for 2 nights. We loved it (and Fes) so much that we extended our stay. All the staff are really friendly and offered lots of great advise.
The rooms are all clean and comfortable. There is a roof terrace, where you can have breakfast.
Additional bonus: Mint tea was always on tap

We spent 4 days in fantastic Fes in Dar el Yasmine. The house is very beautiful, but old so a bit loud (but all the old riads are like this). There is a big roof top terrace with great views of the city. The staff is very nice people and always happy to help and organize transport, trips, guided-tours and are reliable. This is one of the best hostals I ever stayed in!

Although staff was friendly and riad is relatively nice and clean, they asked us politely (we could say no) if we could help them and move to another place of their friend's, because they've booked more rooms than they had by mistake. They said they are asking us as we look friendly and ok. We did move as another place was also a fine one, and we were offered a lunch or dinner by the guys, but as some of their first questions in the morning were if we need guides, want safari, etc., we got a feeling that money is their top priority and that they thought they could get more money from someone else...
