“The absolute best in service and kindness.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

I cannot say enough good things about Dar Hafsa. My sister and I stayed here in December 2012 and loved it. The owner, Abdul Karim, was the kindest, most knowledgeable person in the whole Medina and his children were a close second. The location of the hotel is splendid, a short walk from Babb Bougloud gate and very easy to get to from the train station by cab. My sister and I had some scheduling conflicts during our time in Fes and Abdul Karim could not have been more accommodating. The breakfast in the morning is delicious and hearty enough to provide fortification for a day of exploration in the Medina! Our only regret is that we could not stay in Fes longer to continue to enjoy the Dar Hafsa House's kindness.

Dar hafsa is magnificently restored in traditional morocan way . the riad top point is the family who own and run it .they are very attentive and helpfull . all questions or concerns are treated with utmost curtesy and there seems no request can go unfulfilled . the breakfast was really exeptional.
Dar Hafsa is what we were looking for abd we recommend it to anyone searching for a place to stay in fes great value for money .

Staying in this riad in the Fez medina was a great experience. Kind Moroccon family run riad. Excellent location with all you need only a few steps away. The tanneries, mosques, market surround you. If you make it this far, it is worth staying in the medina.

We have selected this property based on many positive reviews in tripadvisor, so our expectations were probably too high. It's a very nice place and they serve very good tea! It was one of the best on our whole trip.

However, there were some drawbacks we have experienced... We were in Fes during cold, raining days and locals somehow forgot to mention heaters to us.... And they promised us to show a lot of interesting things downthere, but probably rain was too heavy :(

Fes is an intimidating place for the uninitiated! It is large, fast, and packed with activity. I know for a fact that without the help of the Idrissi family and their seemingly endless supply of tea, I would have succumbed to panic! Kareem and his level headed directions made having a guide unnecessary; shopping was a breeze with him as our negotiator, especially as he always offered cautious counsel and guided us to local shopping spots. I will go back to Fes,and I know I will see them again!

I stayed here with my boyfriend and we have had the best experience; the accomodation was visually stunning and the family environment was both reassuring and delightful. We wouldn't have been able to see half the sights, nor experience half the culinary delights without the help of the Idrissi family, who were totally fundamental to our time here. Would recommend without question- you would be lucky to stay here!
