My man and I had an incredible time at Riad 9 this September. The owner Stephen made our reservation process very easy and even had his driver pick us up from the car rental company on the other side of the city. The two wonderful ladies, Atika and her sister Kitoum, took such great care of us and made our stay even more special. The place was absolutely perfect, small, intimate, nicely decorated, very quiet. The rooftop is the best spot in the city in our humble opinion; we spent lots of time there. Kitoum makes such fantastic breakfasts that we ended up having two dinners there in three days, both so great. Even the cats are nice and friendly. The location is ideal and the ladies had a ton of recommendations for us, they were super helpful. Of all the places we visited in Morocco, we wish we could have stayed in Fes longer and will plan more days there next time we visit. And we will definitely stay at the Riad 9 again; it was such a great find, we feel truly lucky.
- 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
