Reviewed November 10, 2013

We traveled Morocco for 2 weeks, and this was by far our favorite place we stayed. Mohammed and the staff here along make this the #1 choice of accommodation. After arriving at night in Fes, they came to pick us up, even though our train was 1 hour later than it was supposed to be. They had tea and cookies prepared for us, and Mohammed stay with us during tea time and chatted, answered all our questions. The dinner at the Riad was romantic and lovely. The Dar was in a good location - staying in the medina was an experience! Though it was difficult to navigate at time a staff member was always available to give us directions in a map that handed out to us. Our room was nicely decorated and had all the modern amenities you could hope for (hot water, good water pressure, air conditioning, television). Breakfast was also delicious, and included not only bread, jam, coffee/tea, but yogurt, pancakes and eggs. Thank you Dar Fes Medina for your warm welcome and comfy stay!

Room Tip: Room on main floor is next to lobby and may be loud.

Although this riad is only 4 years old it looks and feels like it has always been here. A major difference is that the bathroom is modern with a glass shower door and a light . The room was quiet and nicely furnished. It is about a 20 minute walk to the main restaurant area at the edge of the medina but the Gate "Bab Ziat" is very close and taxis are available for small money to go anywhere in the new or old city.

This Riad is very close to one of the Medina's 14 gates. We were welcomed with tea and excellent cookies. The room was comfortable and large enough. The staff, Eman.and Mohammed we're very friendly, welcoming and spoke excellent English. Our thoughts about this Riad is that we would certainly return here.

I absolutely LOVED our stay at Dar Fes Medina! After our delayed train ride from Casablance (following our overnight flight into Morocco), walking in to the beautiful, peaceful riad and being greeted with warm smiles, sweet tea, and delicious cookies as just what we needed. Mohammed, the kind and attentive owner, sat down and joined us for some tea and conversation. He immediately made us feel welcome and encouraged us to feel at home. I did feel comfotable and welcomed, but not quite at home since I don't have the friendly staff bringing me tea and making delicious breakfasts for me at home! I'd gladly bring them home with me!

Speaking of breakfast, the ones I had at Dar Fes Medina were the best of the whole trip! Even on the day we left, we had a complete breakfast ready early in the morning. This was greatly appreciated as many places have more rigid breakfast times, once again showing the wonderful hospitality of this riad. We also had a dinner there one night, which comprised of a variety of Moroccan salads (the eggplant and potatoes were my favorite) and a seasonal tagine of tender beef with cinnamon-sprinkled apples. Delicious!

The decor was beautiful classic Moroccan with tiles, a fountain, plaster-work etc. My only complaint was that I couldn't find a trash bin in the room. This is beacause a pretty pottery bowl under the sink was meant to be used for trash, although I found it too pretty to do so!

One thing worth mentioning is that there is a mosque in close proximity (can be easily seen from the rooftop terrace - a lovely place for afternoon tea, btw), and the call to prayer is audible from the rooms. I knew this beforehand, and it didn't particularly bother me, but I thought it worth to share with future travelers to prepare them for the sunrise call.

Un GRAND merci a Mohammed et al. pour une tres belle visite! J'espere que la petite va bien!

My daughters and I enjoyed a wonderful three night stay at this beautiful and traditional Riad in Fes. Upon our arrival we enjoyed a welcoming tea with Eman (best tea maker in Morooco) who kindly organised someone from a local restaurant to walk to the Riad on our first night and accompany us through unfamiliar streets and walk us home again after our dinner. The cook at the Riad made a wonderful breakfast for us each morning and we also enjoyed a dinner one night with a huge spread of food and flavours. The location in the old part of town added to the charm and mystique of being in Morocco. We enjoyed playing chase and soccer with the local children in the narrow streets nearby. The owner, Mohammed was very personable and friendly and made our stay a very memorable one. Highly recommended.

Mohammed and staff our wonderful. They welcomed us with Moroccan tea and treats and then said, "This house is your house." Our experience was like staying with treasured family. The rooms are lovely and the entire place is very beautiful and clean. You feel like you're in a historic guest house. And a few of the staff understand English, which was very helpful! The staff will also prepare breakfast upon request which was wonderful for the early risers and the late sleepers. And they had a pack-n-play crib for our youngest traveler.

Thank you for hosting us as family, and for the lovely breakfast and restful accommodations. We look forward to coming again someday!

I would say that I was impressed by the quality of the infrastructure of what we can call a guest house. Mohamed, the owner, helped us a lot with our trip and treated us like close friends. The rooms are very comfortable and the classic "tea and sweet crackers" is always served with a smile. I recommend this place 100%!
