Reviewed November 30, 2013

Dar Iman is hosted by Max and Kawtar--two absolutely lovely, gracious people who helped us make our way through the maze of shops, restaurants, guides, donkey rides. I highly recommend Dar Iman as a place to stay in Fes.

Spending 5 days at Dar Iman during the July music festival was a memorable experience. The riad is perfectly located in the medina for access to festival sites, just beyond the Bab Boulod (Blue Gate). Manager Max made us feel part of a special community, those of us who keep returning to Morocco to live briefly within Morocco's many splendored culture. Breakfasts each day featured delicious local foods, and the spacious, high-ceilinged rooms welcomed tired visitors at the end of each day. I will be back for the beauty of Fes and the hospitality of Max and Kawtar.

In addition to everything said in recent posts (about position, food, helpfulness and hospitality), all of which is absolutely true, we would add that Max and Kawtar are an absolute hoot. As well as being in the heart of the wonderful Fes Medina, by staying in this riad you will get an unforgettable insight into Moroccan life through the eyes of a droll Australian and his fiesty Moroccan wife. Loved it. We will be back.

Spent a wonderful week in Fes at Dar Iman. It was very very hot and the riad was a welcome retreat especially the huge air-conditioned bedroom. Breakfast was delicious and ready for us whenever we woke.
Dar Iman is the real deal and the location is right in the heart of the old medina - this is by no means 5-star but is an ideal location from which to enjoy this part of Morocco. We were lucky enough to have a very authentic experience - made even more real by the unending assistance of our host, Max. The streets are full of cheeky urchins offering to guide or sell to you - fortunately I had the opportunity to play them at cards each evening and recover my days loses - thank you for assisting facilitate that Max - very special.
The guide and car contracted for our day tour out to Volubilis and Meknes were top-drawer.

I’m glad that I booked Dar Iman for our stay in Fes, at the busy time of the Sacred Music Festival.

Just a few minutes inside one of the main gates to the Medina, it was an ideal base to be able to walk to the Festival venues, enter deeper to explore the Medina maze or leave to take transport elsewhere.

Max and Kawtar seem to find the perfect balance between this being their home, and other peoples’ while they stay. Although I was keeping very strange hours, were always accommodating, helpful and supportive. Max’s experience in hospitality, both in Australia and Morocco, shows in his ‘just right’ attention to detail, such as the clear and helpful communication before our visit. Also in his willingness to answer what must be the same questions from guests again and again with a smile and a straightforward, personable manner.

When some of my daughter’s friends came to stay with us, Max and Kawtar were flexible and welcoming, providing a safe retreat from the sometimes overwhelming ‘attention’ from men on the streets. This review will likely appear with a note that I am a ‘friend’ of Max’s. Well, though we didn’t know him or the place before I booked, we feel that we are now; and I imagine many guests share that feeling. While there may be other more gilded or glamorous riads and dars in Fes, this was exactly right for us- a homely haven with a heart of gold.

Room Tip: We liked the room on the ground floor as we felt like the lounge area was part of our room. However...
