Our 4 day stay in Fez at Riad 9 was one of the highlights of our 2 week trip in Morocco! The riad is just beautiful, a work of art and because we (a group of 5 friends) occupied every room, it felt so much more comfortable for us than staying somewhere with others. The owners Stephen and Bruno were absolutely charming, and had lots of information about life in Fez. The housekeeper Atika is also an absolute delight and could not have been more helpful. I particularly loved the rooftop terrace – it was wonderful sitting there, watching the view, relaxing, doing nothing! Breakfasts were superb and for a resonable charge they will also provide an excellent dinner. The riad is centrally located within the medina and well worth a visit. Bruno and Stephen also own Resto 7 which is just around the corner, and dinner there is highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad n°9 is an 18th century bourgeois residence that has been reincarnated as a boutigue bed and breakfast. The decisive factor in purchasing the property was the roof terrace which has sweeping views over the medina. Riad n°9 was originally purchased as a vacation home in 1999 and underwent a 3-year restoration process. We uncovered all the original 18th century mosaics, carved wood and plaster and hand-painted wood. In 2007, we opened to the public and changed nothing believing guests would appreciate the "personal" touches throughout. Our philosophy is to offer guests the possibility of appropriating the space for themselves and experiencing what an authentic medina home feels like. ... more less
