“An awesome stay in the heart of medina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

The people were downright amazing.
Ahmed, the manager, organized a taxi for us, and waited for us so we don't get lost in the medina. He had all the info we could possibly need, and never gave a wrong advice. He's a very smart guy, so make sure you listen to him.
Sabah kept us well fed, and met us with unparalleled kindness.
We were also lucky enough to meet Sonhild, the owner, who is an uplifting person one can talk to for hours.
They all made absolutely sure we felt right at home.
The location of the house is also remarkable. It is in the inner, sacred, area of the medina and is in the very centre of action. Marrakech medina, that we visited afterwards, paled in comparison.

All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Amazing terrace to relax and felt very comfortable. Breakfast on the terrace was a definite highlight, fresh juice and a good supply of Moroccan tea. Highly recommend getting the airport transfers as is confusing to find in medina for the first time.

I stayed at the Riad for two nights and about a week ago and can really recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, calm place in the middle of the old Medina.

Ahmed, the host of the Riad, picked me up at the train station so that I would not get lost. And in the morning he gave me a map which was really helpful for navigating the small alleyways and he also gave me recommendations on sights to see and restaurants to visit. The Riad is also located next to one of the main sights which is helpful in the rare occasion where you do have to ask people for the way. Also, Ahmed will give you a key to the building so you can come and go as you like and don't have to worry about someone staying up late in case you have a late dinner.

The breakfast was probably the most abundant I've had during my stay in Morocco and Saba, the lady who prepares the meals, is truly lovely. Also, the view from the rooftop terrace is stunning!

One little thing which I could be improved is to mention on the internet booking sites that, although all rooms have their own bathroom, some require you to cross the corridor to reach it or take the stairs one floor down. Despite this tiny issue, I would definitely recommend the Riad and would definitely also come here again in case I returned to Fez.

To stay in the middle of the medina in such a nice home was really wonderfull. My husband and I loved the place. Ahmed was really kind and helpfull and Saba was so sweet. Breakfast on the roof terrasse was a really nice moment before getting ready for the crowd of the medina.
A stay in Dar Sienne is something.

Smack in the middle of the old medina, at walking distance of almost everything. The Fez medina is one of the most chaotic places in the world, but you won't notice when you're inside this wonderfully restored house, except maybe in the early morning, when you might hear the morning call prayers of the mosque closeby. Helpful and extremely welcoming staff, great roof terrace with amazing 360 view to relax, either in the sun or in the evening, and a nice room. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking your own diner if you feel like it. My private bathroom was clean and nicely decorated, although a bit smallish. If you need your space there, choose one of the (a little more expensive) top rooms. I will definitely go back.

the place was very clean! the terrace is absolutely beautifull and the breakfast delicious and tradicional! the staff was great very friendy and helpfull. There you can feel peacefull and relaxed, which is very nice because the medina is crazy and sometimes stressfull. the only bad thing is that is difficult to find the place especialy at night because the stores are closed and everythig looks the same! and the place is just in the heart of the medina, so maybe could be nice put some sign to find it easily....

the rest perfect!
we loved it
thanks!
