“wonderful experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

We arrived around midnight and were greeted warmly by a staff member who had stayed there to meet us. It was the beginning of our two night stay in the heart of Fez.The staff went out of there way to look after us .We had a beautiful homecooked evening meal on the terrace overlooking Fez.Location is excellent and it gives you a great Moraccan experience staying in a restored Riad.Certainly beats staying in a tourist hotel.

Its a really good option. Great staff and well conected place because its near the medina. This riad is easy to find. The journey from de train station to there by taxi will cost you about 15 dinars -20 dnrs. We strong recommend.

This was our first riad experience in Morocco and we certainly struck gold! The staff were just fab - nothing too much trouble and we felt very welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The riad is on the edge of the medina - a couple of mins walk to jump into a taxi to get to the main sights. As we were on a tight schedule, we booked a tour around Fez with a guide recommended by Samari (fantastic member of staff). Mohammed was great, very knowledgeable and easy going. Was certainly worth it as spent the day having a tour around the medina and if we would have done it ourselves we would have got lost and would have been hassled by unofficial guides. Also went to a pottery place just on the outskirts of the city (pretty pricey) and some good view points.

Our rooms were really nice (had the two right at the top of the raid) and really enjoyed the selection of Moroccon hot salads we had on the first evening. Breakfast was good but no homemade yoghurt!

Well, good things first. It is a very beautiful Riad, our room was great, and the food is outstanding; by far the best I had in Morocco. Staff seemingly nice for the most part (see exception below). Also, good location, close walk to the Medina and only 20 Dh cab (Fes cabs are metered, unlike most of the rest of Morocco) ride to center of new part of town. Everything was going well until…

Bad (very). So, after the third night I wake up for breakfast and go out in the courtyard, and am sitting there waiting, and begin to hear a familiar voice of a staff person (in English) screaming from the kitchen area about America and Iraq ,over and over again, and hating America and how America is a terrible and uncivil society, blah, blah… So I sit there not wanting to believe what I am hearing but it keeps going on and on... I did not misunderstand one comment, it keeps repeating. It eventually stops. I sit there. Ten minutes has past; I am checking my watch… No one comes out. Do they think I did not hear any of that! It is like being hit in the head with a baseball bat. This actually happened! I go back to the room and tell my wife to get up and pack, immediately, we must leave, now! Once you realize you are being held in contempt simply for where you are from how can you stay? I mean this is a riad, not a huge 200 or 300 room hotel, you can’t really just ignore it and go on with your day. We were to stay two more nights and when we suddenly said we were leaving they did not ask why or really did not seem to care which just reinforced the above.

We are and have always been very quiet, modest, easy-going and respectful travelers. (Really, a drunk Brit accidentally walked into our room one night here which we laughed off). We have travelled the world for 20+ years and nothing like this has ever happened before.

No matter how respectful you are you will be held in held in contempt simply for being an American here (don’t fool yourself you are no different).

We went directly to the station and took the next train to Casablanca and ended up leaving Morocco five days earlier than planned.

I am giving two stars but should give zero stars. However it is beautiful and great food and if you can put up with being held quietly (or not) in contempt it is four or five star.

Location is perfect for visiting Old Medina.
Samira and all people in Riad is very kind and always ready to support your need and organize trip or Hammam.
Do not hesitate to ask them what you need.
Riad is so pretty and the room as well.
They will cook in their kitchen breakfast , lunch and dinner...and the food is very good!

I think that Riad Ghita is the right choice to visit Fes and take the opportunity to organize with Riad the trip in Meknes and Voulibilis, they will organize with a driver , the one we have was so Kind.

Very helpful staff, & they organised a good guide (absolutely essential) to take us through the riad. Young Mohammed who served our breakfast was charming. We had trouble finding the place on arrival, so the riad should provide a good map as part of the confirmation. Room was large & decorated in the traditional Moroccan stlyle (complete with traditionally poor Morocccan lighting)

Spent 2 nights at this Riad and it definitely was the right choice. The location is perfect. Easy to find, just outside the old medina. A perfect starting point for a visit of Fes.
The staff cannot be more friendly. The service impeccable. The food of excellent quality.
The rooms are just beautiful, tastefully decorated. The roof terrace offers a great view.
We would chose this riad again without hesitation
