“A taste of Morocco and a marvelous memory by itself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We stayed two nights in this Riad in Fes. When first taken through the dark maze of corridors to the main door, we were a bit apprehensive. The doors opened and we were greeted with a spectacular ambiance of beautiful hand engraved plaster, hand carved and painted ceilings, a three story entrance hall and spotlessly clean. Our hosts, Tayeb and Achmed, could not have tried harder to make us feel welcomed. We were served a four course dinner on the roof terrace overlooking the town and being basked by a full moon. We had delightful breakfasts. Our hosts went out of their way to make sure that all questions were answered and would make suggestions for day and evening excursions. We felt the friendliness was sincere and greatly appreciated. Out bedroom was comfortable and the ambiance continued with 17 foot hand carved and painted ceilings and beautiful iron wrought windows overlooking the main hall. I would recommend this Riad to anyone who visits Fes and should we return to this ancient and lovely town, we will be sure to once again stay here.

Great Riad to stay at close to the Medina. It was easy to find and the staff is fantastic! They were very kind and willing to help with everything. The view from the roof is amazing and not to be missed. We enjoyed our breakfast up there soaking in the sunlight and wonderful views. They also set us up for a tour with Lazrak-- highly recommended! He is very knowledgeable and funny. He showed us all the beauty Fes has to offer and really cared about showing us what we were interested in. Riad Ibn Khaldoun is an excellent taste of Moroccan tradition and hospitality at its finest!

Once you get past the introductory dark and narrow alley that leads you to the Riad, you knock two door knockers to enter into this amazing space. A central court that all rooms open off of and that soars up 3-4 flights, it is filled with Moroccan furnishings and you feel like you've stepped back in time. You will enjoy studying the fabulous architecture and furnishings. We were greeted by our host and served Moroccan tea and given an overview of what's available and the tour that can be provided. We were hoping to just spend a day roaming the pathways of the medina and he gave us exactly that, with loads of fascinating facts and showing us hidden sights we'd never have found on our own. Lazrak is a certified tour guide and you will not be disappointed to spend the day with him; he gives plenty of time for photos and enjoyment/absorption. If interested he can show you shops for each type of handicraft, and there is no requirement to purchase. A dinner is available at the Riad and it is delicious, homemade and very good value. Our triple room was spacious and comfortable; the bathroom is authentic as well with an open shower area and a hand held sprayer. Plenty of hot water. Breakfast is included and plentiful. The staff is warm, welcoming and very helpful. Make sure you check out the roof garden. The Riad only accepts cash.

If you want to experience Morocco in a more traditional way, Riads are made for you.
This one is located very close to a parking and so, allows you to be in the medina, without having to walk too long with your luggages in the streets.
Also, the owner, as friendly as his staff, has kept its traditional flair and the view from the terrace is wonderful!
Rooms are also very well heated, which is a plus in winter.

Looking for an authentic Moroccan experience? Here it is!

Don't let the dark alley way of the medina deter you. Live the experience as an authentic Moroccan house guest and savor the hospitality at Riad Ibn Khaldoun. Appreciate the quality of centuries old craftmanship of mosaics, cedar carvings, and home cooked Moroccan cuisine. LOVELY staff and welcoming owner will make you feel right at home and extend their invitation. English speaking staff members on site.

We chose Riad Ibn Khaldoun without realising what we were to expect and found an amazing place to stay in Fez close to the Ancient Medina.The warm welcome from the hospitality team - Karim,Rajaa,Ouafaa and Abderaham was fantastic as was their kindness and service throughout our five night stay in lovely traditional surroundings which provide a truly authentic feeling of times past.
The proprietor, Mr. Lazrak Salaheddin introduced himself on our first night when we enjoyed a delicious Tagine and other delicacies and with him being so involved in the tourism industry,he gave us much interesting historical and current information.
We had a simply wonderful time in this Riad which we can thoroughly recommend without hesitation as both he and his team will do everything to make your stay memorable which it was for us.
