“nice but overpriced”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

這個旅館跟其他riad比起來貴設備也沒有很好。電視很小,廁所也很簡陋。但是位於新城所以不用忍受舊城的那種髒亂而且fez的計程車也不貴。大廳的煙味很重房間又沒有wifi訊號要到大廳上網。不過床很舒服房間乾淨,冷氣自動調節不會一直冷。打掃的阿姨人和善。這裡早餐又貴又一般般,建議出去吃
Hotel "Splendid",I expect something "splendid" as it's a three star "budget" hotel (432dh per night). The only splendid thing is the swimming pool. The other things are quite.simple. The TV screen is so small and the signal is not very good. There s bad smell from people smoking in the lobby.Also it s very annoying that there is no wifi signal in the room. The good part is the bed is pretty comfortable. The cleaning lady is so nice and always say bonjour with smile to us.Also the room is very clean. with changed towel and toilet paper everyday. The breakfast is pretty simple but it costs 40dh. There s plenty of good cafe serving good breakfst and cheaper than that. Though it is in the ville nouvelle. There s a very prertty jardin public to walk on and cleaner than the medina. Lots of fancy and not expensive cafe to eat. People there are much more polite and civilised.

Hotel splendid is a ten minute walk from the main train station. At Dh 432 per night I was expecting something "splendid", however the only thing splendid is the pool. For the price you get rooms similar to budget riads in Marrakesh but without the service. Staff were uninterested and said three words to us the entire stay. Lack of hot water was annoying. I had a better and cheaper stay within the Medina. Convenient to the train station, however taxis are cheap on the meter.

Spent two nights at Hotel Splendid after spending one awful evening at Royal Hotel. There is hot water available all day, and internet service is available in the lobby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean. I would definitely stay here again. It is a short walk to some very good restaurants, including Restaurant Marrakesh (about a 10 minute walk). The hotel is also near Avenue Hassan II which is a very nice tree-lined street with many cafes. It is a great people watching location. I very much enjoyed staying in Ville Nouvelle as there were fewer tourists and it is more quiet. Overall, a very nice experience at Hotel Splendid.

This is a good hotel, nice rooms, if a bit small, a pool, and a bar!!!! The restaurant looks ok, though it's the usual fare so you might want to go elsewhere. A much better choice out of the Medina- anything there is overpriced and dire and you can get around easily using a petit taxi too.

This hotel is a little out of the way from the medina but cheap taxis in Fes mean that's not really a problem. Rooms are nice and so is the bar and swimming pool. Overall a very good mid range choice.

This option is not too bad if you are staying in the Ville Nouvelle of Fes, but if you are on a holiday trip I would recommend to stay in the medina.
Our room was OK. Clean, but also a bit run down. The bathroom (in a closet) was tiny and it took ages for the shower to warm up.

We arrived in Fes from Rabat with low hotel expectations (our experience in Rabat was overpriced and poor quality hotels in the city center) . We were pleasantly surprised by this pretty little hotel.The lobby and pool are lovely, the restaurant very good and the central location is excellent. You can walk to the train station a few blocks away. The rooms are good quality for a three star hotel in Moroc. We definately recommend this one for groups, families, couples etc.k
