My partner and I stayed in this beautiful riad for five nights earlier this month. The booking and payment process, conducted chiefly by e-mail with the owner, could not have been made easier; similarly the arrangements for collection from the train station.
The property itself is truly a home from home, and we were made warmly welcome by the extremely hospitable and attentive staff - Simon, Anas and Nadia - from the very beginning to the end of our visit. From the delicious breakfasts on the sunny roof terrace to the complimentary pots of freshly prepared mint tea, every consideration is given to making the guest feel trulycomfortable.
We stayed on the second floor, in a huge room (number 1) with stained-glass windows and an ornate wooden ceiling; the lavatory is slightly separate and the shower room and walk-in wardrobe area situated up a short, if also quite steep, flight of stairs. There is an iPod dock in every room, which is a thoughtful addition, as television would certainly be out of place here.
The city of Fes itself is a true delight, and no visitor could possibly remain unchanged after experiencing even the briefest encounter with the medina. Be prepared for an omni-sensory treat!
The riad lies on the periphery of the old town, and very handily situated close to Place Batha, from where the exceptionally cheap 'petits taxis' can take you anywhere local. You're also not far from the enchanting Jardin J'nan Sbil, a veritable oasis in this otherwise hectic city. In short, Riad Tizwa is an idyllic, and also very convenient, place to choose as your home from home while visiting this ancient and mesmerising Moroccan city.
