Riad Fes - Relais & Chateaux

Reviewed April 9, 2013

Everything about Riad Fès is a bit of a surprise. The car gets abandoned at the entrance to the Medina and you have to weave your way through the narrow, high-walled streets, wondering when you'll find the place at all. And then you see the R&C awning. A passageway leads you down to the real way in but you are still meandering inside until you make it to the reception, and beyond...the first of the interior courtyards, bedecked in Moroccan tiles, a gem from every aspect. Glance upwards and your eyes are stunned by the majesty of it all. And so it goes on as you explore the interconnected riads, each with its own distinct style, each fit for a King. You immediately appreciate the care and attention that has gone into creating this oasis of sheer style. The first class spa, pool area, wine bar and restaurant (wonderful breakfasts of whatever you wish) all deserve a mention. Extremely helpful staff add to the experience, and you are on the doorstep (well, just beyond it) of the fascinating Medina that dates back over a thousand years - a whole day trip (guide essential - the one recommended by the hotel was polite and friendly and knew his stuff, but didn't insist on bending our ears at every corner). I've been recommending Fez in general and the Riad Fès in particular ever since I got back. The place is a gem.

I have travelled to Morocco several times and stayed in several riads and hotels across the country. Riad Fes is one of the best, if not the best, riads in the country and certainly the best in Fes. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The hotel staff are efficient and helpful. Hotel reception/concierge are very good and were very resourceful in meeting my last minute requests. The riad is also quite conveniently located - being a short walk from one of the main entrances of the medina and close to the blue gate.

Riad Fez was our first lodging in the beautiful country of Morocco. It is a perfect location in the medina. The riad has traditional Moroccan charm yet sophisticated as any Relais & Chateaux hotel would have. Our room was spacious yet it had a cozy feeling. Excellent staff and wonderful food. I would stay there again.

Wonderful place, beautiful courtyards and good service. We were also upgraded to a beautiful room, very luxurious. Breakfast was excellent and although we didn't eat dinner here we had great snacks with the beer we had one evening. Looking at the menus we probably got better value eating out, but it's very difficult to find your way around the medina. We were lucky that our guide arranged a trip one evening to the new town where we got excellent food for 2 in a very basic bar for about £5. The following day he took us to a fantastic place for lunch in the medina - would never find it again! But the hotel food was excellent based on breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade!

This hotel is simply stunning and the service is exceptional. Fantastic location. It rained a lot while we were there, but we were very happy to hang out in the beautiful lobby and enjoy the surroundings. When my husband & I had to wake up at 3am to catch a flight, the hotel provided hotel and pastries without our having to even ask.

Fes is SO much nicer than Marrakesh by the way!

A spectacular Riad, right in the heart of the medina. Perfect location and lovely riad. Beautiful and stunning interiors.

We had a small water problem in our room and they immediately upgraded us to a bigger room. Used the spa which was very good. Ate most of our meals in the Riad itself - very good food but after a point there is less variety and it is very expensive (specially when you have no other choices around). We did try to venture into the medina in the evening to try and get dinner one night but it appeared to be quite unsafe so we went back to the Riad for dinner.

Awa Diakhate, the Sales & Marketing Head of Riad Fes is absolutely lovely. So warm and polite. She will always put the guests preferences as a priority and ensures that everything that a guest wants is taken care of. We were very grateful to her during our stay - she gave us the best offers and room rates! Must communicate with her if you want to stay at Riad Fes.

Room Tip: A roof top room gives views of the medina. Lower rooms are bigger in size. However, since it is in t...
