Despite we didn't have opportunity to live in this riad, but I was deeply convinced it was a nice hotel in Fez. My girl friend and I was delayed to arrive this riad one day than our booking date and unfortunately this place was full booked that day. After 10+ hours driving from Sahara, we were too exhausted to find out the other available hotels at that moment. The oweners of Dar Hafsa were so nice. They provided us free wifi to find the hotels. Moreover, they helped us dial the other 3+ hotels for the space without asking any money. That's so different compare to other Morocco ppl. We were so appreciate for their will treatment and recommend this hotel to all of you.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews we decided to stay in Dar Hafsa when in Fez for a night. We were welcomed at the medina and escorted to this beautiful dar Hafsa... we were very happy with our stay here and extended our stay.. its really dar(house with lovely team of people) hafsa and made us feel really at home.. we took the team's help to get a tour guide. We again enjoyed a whole day of tour around medina and best part was that we never felt tired. . All in all an excellent and memorable experience. Highly recommended.

I find myself writing about this gem of a riad once again. I was able to spend a few days here again last december. The place still retains its charm of being a cosy traditional house in the medina. Mr Karim and his team are always there to help you out. On this visit helped me to find traditional food and medicines that I would have spent ages trying to locate. I was able to save both time and money! All in all I would definitely stay here again.

This riad is very nice and very affordable. It's conveniently located in the medina. Hospitable staff was helpful with directions and recommendations as well as with teaching us how to make an authentic Moroccan mint tea. Good wifi connection was also a big help.

The staff are very accommodating - making tea, cleaning when you wish, giving you help with directions/recommendations for Fez. It is located near the Blue Gate/main gate of the Medina so even if you are bad with directions you should be able to find your way back. It is a comfortable space. May need a bit of an update with lighting and heating, and the washrooms are quite small (shower is essentially above the sink) but overall, comfortable and close to main gate, while being inexpensive. Breakfast is very unhealthy/lots of pastries, but it’s big and fills you up!

The place is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are very nicely arranged, full of color an warmth. The service is very personal and kind. And the breakfast will leave full of energy and happiness, it's a fact. Thank you for it all.

Room Tip: Choose the double room downstairs, it's the loveliest one.

The whole family welcomes you to their small, but beautiful, guesthouse. The rooms are individually decorated and have a lot of charachter and are very comfortable. Being on a small side alley in the medina it is very quiet, but within a minutes walk of the hustle and bustle of one of the two main streets down from the Blue Gate so easy to locate.
Karim can organise excursions if you wish and makes you feel totally at home, and the hardworking Mariam is always at the heart of things, and seems to answer your emails almost before they are sent! The breakfast in the morning is extensive and sets you up for the day very well!
