“Don't let the exterior deter you”
Reviewed April 28, 2007

The thick walls of this building insulate not only from the heat but also from the commotion outside. Because we were there in March, it was a bit cool; and we needed space heaters in addition to the cashmere blankets provided. The torn-up exterior is not representative of what you will find inside. The rooms are nicely furnished with highly decorated ceilings that are carved and painted. Decent bathrooms. LOTS of steps to rooms and to reach the terrace restaurant. Very little English spoken. The owner was quick to dismiss the guide we'd arranged for and replaced with his own guide. It was a little disconcerting not knowing whom to trust, but the stay was good overall. I was sick one day, and the restaurant staff delivered (without being asked) soup and hot tea. The proprietor sells high quality carpets on the main level. Fez, in general, was not as captivating as other areas of Morocco. We hired a guide just to make our way through the labyrinth of souks.

We stayed at the Palais de Fes in March 06 and do not recommend it at all!
A claustrophobic room, uncomfortable bed, tiny bathroom that smelt, dead flowers in room on arrival, flight upon flight of narrow stairs and far from being value for money. The food in the restaurant is good (we recmmend the fish tagine) although again alot more expensive than anything else you will experience in Fes but breakfast was horrid. The hotel side of things really feels like an after thought to the main business of the restaurant and carpet shop. When we checked in they even tried to sell us a used map of Fes for 10 euros! Cynical, impersonal, dreadful and so unlike the wonderful, friendly, helpful welcome you get in the majority of other places in Morocco. The only positives are a fantastic view from the roof terrace and nice restaurant staff and driver. Don't stay here!
