My friend and I happened upon Dar Fes Medina following a short description in Lonely Planet and the fact that it is situated right next to one of the gates to ancient medina of Fez. Situated in a quiet neighborhood with only 5 minutes away from the heart of the medina, the dar offered us an oasis from the everyday chaos. Upon arrival, owner Mohamed gave us a brief history of this young dar of 5 years but with exquisit and care brush of antiquity in each corner. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. The downstairs area is open for relaxing for conversation between friends over some tea or food. Mohamed invited us to mint tea and cookies, told us about the recent of the Moroccan king to Fez. The dar's friendly staff invited me to snack with them in the kitchen. Had we more time in Fez I would have loved to eat the dinner that they make. I felt right at home. Later on, Mohamed helped to arrange for a short half day tour with the tourism office and introduced us to a family run restaurant. It took away much of the anxiety of visiting this complex city that was built to confuse attackers and tourists alike. I have no doubt that I will be staying at Dar Fez Medina in my next visit to Fez and so should you.
