“Perfect place to stay in Fes”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Riad Dar Tafilalet was a perfect place to stay for my friend and I during our recent trip. They have everything you could want during a vacation: beautiful & comfortable rooms and central spaces, friendly & helpful staff, gorgeous view, excellent food, and good location. Near an entrance to the medina, the riad is a great spot from which to explore Fes and it's got easy to access taxis to drop you in various spots around town. Mohamed was an excellent host and he went above and beyond in meeting our needs during our stay. We didn't eat dinner in the riad, but breakfasts were amazing and the staff were all friendly. The view from the roof is incredible and an excellent place to start or end the day. I would recommend the riad highly.

Room Tip: You would want to know what floor your riad is on, if stairs are challenging for you.

This was our first stay in a Riad. Nice experience, friendly and warm staff. Very authentic Moroccan feel. The food was average.
The rooms, though nicely appointed were a bit dark as was the courtyard.
There are no windows on the ground floor and the main door is always locked.
The rooftop is very nice at night and the wi-fi reception was the best we had in Morocco!

Riad is located on the high zone of medina so from its terrace you can see all Fez from altittude..

Location is also great, easy to find and close to the medinas exit...

Staff is amazingly friendly and helpfull, and hammam is also amazing!

We enjoyed a lot the food also!

Really worth staying in Tafilalet!

We had a pleasure of staying at Riad Tafilalet for two nights. It is a beautiful property (check out the roof top terrace!). Our host Mohamed made us feel like at home. He always has a great smile and is always there when you need him. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious - and this is where I got hooked on tajines. I would never hesitate to stay at this riad again.

Hello Ibrahim and Team of Riad Tafilalet,

we stayed at Riad Tafilalet from April 24-27, 2012. It was the first time we came to Morocco. Dear Ibrahim, you made us feel so welcome. It was a wonderful start. Riad Tafilalet is very beautiful and the dinners and breakfasts were excellent. We had booked via Sahara Services. Thank you so much again, We wish you all the best! Regine and Jochen, Helga and Friedrich from Germany.

The location of the riad was just inside the medina, so it was easy to find our way out and close to do tours of medina. The building and rooms looked great, and we were comfortable the first night as we were the only guests, but it was really noisy the second night when it was full, so had no sleep. The hospitality by Mohammad was great, especially breakfast, although the hotel doesn't have a kitchen, so food was cooked and bought in from elsewhere. The Sofitel was 5 min walk and had great food and wine. Other restaurants in the medina looked really average! The view from the roof was great.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Mohammad really looked after us and provided delicious dinners and breakfasts. The inside of the riad takes on a mysterious quality at night. We were guided up to the rooftop at night to take photos and hear the call to prayer. The location is near the Sofitel, which is a good place to have a drink, even if you don't stay there.
