This is a lovely guest house in Fes. From the time we checked in, until we left 24 hours later, the staff made us feel at home. The room was very handsome and well-appointed, and the staff very friendly and attentive. Also, the restaurant was very good. It is also in a very good location, as it sits near the "Blue Gate" entry into the medina, or old city. Near the end of our stay, we had a couple of hours to kill, while waiting for our transportation to our next destination. The staff made sure that we felt welcome and comfortable while we waited. Strongly recommend this place.

Stayed here three nights in large suite with modern bath and warm surroundings.The rebuilt but authentic riad is inside the ancient wall of the medina (old village). Walk to the souks (shops), and maybe even get lost in the winding, narrow streets and alleys of the old medina. Part of the fun. Or hire a guide to walk you thru.

The staff is very friendly, with good English spoken. Breakfast was extensive, not just a continental. Eggs cooked to order.

The facilities are in good order with heat and air conditioning plus modern bath.
Enjoyed our stay here far more than our brief stop in Rabat Sofitel, a fancy and expensive hotel where breakfast will cost you 30 Euros.

You don't need a car. In fact, you don't want one here. Use taxi. Ride the Hop-on Hop-off bus for an overview of the old and new areas.

Unlike many of the better riads that seem more like small hotels, at Riad Maison Bleue you actually feel like a house guest. The staff quickly gets to know you, and your preferences down to how you like your omelets done and what you like on them. The rooms are comfortable and the courtyard spectacular. The house wines are quite good and the food well prepared and generously portioned. And any request to the staff is attended to promptly.

If you have any issues with stairs, however, this is not the place for you. Narrow and steep staircases will keep you in shape and there is no simple way to get to the dining area and bar without a short workout.

In an excellent and quiet location, it is a short ride to the Medina and all other areas around Fes. Highly recommend Riad Maison Bleue.

This Riad has nice rooms with comfortable beds. The decor is quite elegant. There were some flaws in the bathroom, but its not the 4seasons. The chicken Tajine was the best we had in morocco. Local Cabernet and Sauvignon quite good. Chardonnay not so much. The breakfasts were cooked to order and very good. Because this is a small Riad the building goes up. LOTS OF STAIRS. it took us 2 days to figure out it was possible to cut across the top of the Hammam to get from the terrace restaurant to our room. The stairs were a bonus because the bread was very good. Lots of appetizers served with cocktails. We did the Hammam and massage. Fabulous! Don't miss that!!

The riad is beautiful. Everywhere you look is an example of exceptional Morrocan artistry. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable( soft beds and soft pillows).
The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent.
Our visit here was a truly memorable experience.

One of the best riads in Fes with excellent service and very friendly management. We had a very nice suite with direct access to the pool. The suite was really big and the whole room was very nice decorated. The bathroom was also nice and big. We recommend a Dinner on the roof terrace or in the restaurant. The food and the service was also excellence. Definitely one of the best riads we had on our journey through Morocco.

We loved our stay at the Riad Maison Bleue. It was our last stop on a two week Morocco trip, and it was definitely a highlight. The rooms were huge and beautiful and the service was top-notch. We found the staff to be so warm and welcoming -- I was sad to leave. The rooftop terrace was a wonderful place to enjoy some wine before dinner, and the food was excellent. Many nice touches -- a complimentary bottle of wine per room, a complimentary massage for each guest, and if you sit down in one of the many beautiful common areas to relax with a book, suddenly there appears a member of the staff with a plate of cookies for you to enjoy! A terrific place that I highly recommend.
