“Hard To Find, But Well Worth It”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Tucked in amongst the labyrinth of Fes's medina is this oasis. The rooms are spotless and well decorated and the service is second to none.

The dar's rooftop is perfect for allowing you to study the surrounding buildings and take in the calls for prayers the emanate across the landscape, or if you so desire, leisurely read a book.

And to boot, the breakfast is amazing.

All in all, this place is a great find.

Dear Forzametro,
we wanted to find a beautiful house, with a beautiful view and in a traditionnal and typical quarter....And we found Dar Faracha !!!
Our riad could be hard to find....be only the first time, it's the reason why we contact our guests to meet them and show them the way ! After it's easy as the rest of the Fez's medina ; ))
You will be always welcome for a next stay, kinds regards,
All the team of Dar Faracha Fez

I stayed at Dar Faracha for 5 nights and it was extremely pleasant. My room (the grey one) was clean, comfortable and worth the money I paid.
Needless to say, I was looking forward to the dinner every single night, their food are just amazing! Moroccan cuisine offers a considerable variety of dishes and you get to eat a well-balanced/delicious dinner. Breakfasts are equally good with homemade jams, fresh fruits and freshly cooked crepes. And you have a charming view on the terrace.
The lovely Joëlle -who runs this beautifully designed riad- is always there for you. Whether you need an official tour guide to show you around the Medina or additional advice on your trip, she takes care of them right away. Also, she is a genuinely interesting person to talk with. The staff is kind, helpful and efficient. And I like that she was constantly asking me if I wanted some mint tea because I totally love it!
Most importantly, I felt myself like home and I can recommend this heaven on Earth without any hesitations!

Room Tip: I found it a bit hard to sleep in the grey room occasionally due to the noise.

I stayed at Riad Faracha for a couple of days during the Fes Mucis Festival, and we had a a truly great stay. The Riad itself is beautifully designed and with marvellous color combinations. The whole design is inspiring if you think that the Riad was almost redesigned from scratch within one year and just openend in 2012. The locations is directly in the Medina, making it somehow a bit adventurous coming there by night. Joelle and her team make it a real hidden paradise and the service is impeccable, as you feel constantly well served and very much at home. Well done, keep it up !!

We stayed there for 3 days and I absolutely recommend the Riad. Service was absolutely top notch. I always felt like a guest at a friends house where everyone is trying to make me feel at happy.

Moreover, the food was absolutely fantastic (a must if you stay here!!!). Note that this is one of the few places were you can get alcohol and a great dinner!. Breakfast is equally good, always including pieces of local cuisine, but also the traditionals, like yoghurt, fruit, etc.

The rooms were beautifully decorated, with a large bathroom, a big and comfortable bed, A/C, etc.

It is worth noting that they also have a really cool terrace to enjoy your evenings while appreciating Fes.

The bad things? The bathroom didn't smell amazingly, but I'm not sure if that's their fault. Also, please note that sleeping well inside the Medina in Fes, might not be realistic (due to praying).

In spite of those minor things, I can only say that I really loved the place and I absolutely recommend it.

Dear Citizen 1983,
Thank you so much for your review and your kindless.
We are sorry for the smell of the bathroom, it's sometime the problem in the medina because it's very old, even if we make complete works.
If you said us during your stay, we try make something for your confort. So apologies, but it's not really our fault.
If you want to come back later we will be happy to see you again...perhaps you will become vegetarian : ) !!!!!
Best regards,

We stayed in this Riad for a week after a massive 4-month marathon at work and it was the best decision we've ever made.
If you're looking for an oasis of peace, this is it! The hosts are so attentive and sweet without being intrusive. We took the grey room and loved the way everything was decorated, and the bed... made it a home away from home! I travel a lot for work and the bed is always key for me to enjoy a stay anywhere else but in my own bed.
Joelle was amazing to us and we're still talking about how amazing the food was.
We highly recommend this place and will definitely go back.

Dar Faracha Fes is an authentic classical moroccan riad located in the heart of the old city of Fes. It is a chance for everybody to experience moroccos rich culture authentically. Most of all we enjoyed after a nice day at the markets the beautiful sunset over the city from the terrace of the Dar Faracha.

We had such a great stay at this 'Dar' (Riad). From the moment we entered we were shown huge hospitality from our host, a warm welcoming French lady, greeting us with mint tea and traditional Moroccan sweets. Breakfast equally good, being served crepes was a real treat. The rooms were decorated beautifully, typical Moroccan Riad style. Overall, we would highly recommend this Riad, many thanks for everything during our stay.
