Just returned from an amazing vacation in Morocco. One of the highlights was Dar Roumana in Fes. An oasis of serenity between the small alleys of the medina, Dar Roumana is a beautifully restored riad with intricate Moroccan decorations and tastefully furnished rooms. The owners, Jennifer and Sebastian are a reliable source of information and great hosts without being intrusive. One of the highlights of this riad is its roof-terrace with great views of the Medina. This info was already published before so I wont elaborate more on the place itself. I just want to say that everything we expected and heard of this place was an understatement for it 's actual beauty .
We found the price also reasonable, compared to riads in Marrakech and would recommend staying at least 3-4 days to fully appreciate the Fes medina and area. It was really an experience of a lifetime to stay in such an amazing place for a few days.
Please note however, that when (and if...) you return to the riad late at night, you walk through some dark alleys where gangs of young men are gathered. No incidence according to my knowledge were reported, but the feeling could be a bit uncomfortable.
