“A highlight of our stay in Morocco”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

The staff was wonderful. The breakfasts yummy. The room was big and beautiful. Although it was a bit drafty, the supplied space heaters helped keep the chill off in March.

We (partner and I) have just returned from a chilled out, warm and relaxing stay in Fez and nearby Moulay Idriss. We stayed in Fez at the start and end of our trip and chose riads in different sections of the medina to experience as much as possible of the maze of alleys and shops which change depending which section you are in. We had booked Dar Skalli before our arrival and as directed, took a taxi to the fountain and phoned them so the lovely and cheerful English speaking manager could come and meet us and escort us to the riad. The room we were given was huge -that's huge!! - with colourful bedding and an area of comfortable sofas in the usual bright Moroccan colours. The bathroom was up a set of quite steep but charming iron banistered stairs and the bath was so deep that it felt like a swimming pool!! What was great was that there was no problem with hot water so a happy hour was spent soaking! The room was on the ground floor and conveniently next to the patio - but except for breakfast we weren't aware of any major noise - you are however in the middle of the busy and thriving medina so a bit of noise from the streets outside is only to be expected. As is always the case, the lighting in the riad bedrooms is not European - Morocco electricity seems to favour more subdued lighting, but it was certainly better than others we have stayed in. We stayed in three different riads during our trip and agreed that this was certainly the best all round. It is close to the medina but a few streets from the main throng, the staff were very helpful and friendly and we would be happy to recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Fez.

We are a familiy of 4, with 2 young boys aged 5 and 2 and have just spend 12 nights here in Fez at Riad dar Skalli. It has been a magical experience. The Riad (hotel) has treated us very good. We got a good price for our room and did not expect all that much, ut have been very positivly taken care of. The Riad has an ideal location for exploring the medina. The people of Fez are veryv welcomming, friendly and hospitable. We have not experienced any inconvinience or hassle all. Good tips are to drink lots of mint tea (to maintain a balanced stomace) and give some of your self

We stayed for 3 nights in this Riad. It is nice, clean and well maintained. The owner lives there and looks after you during the entire stay. We stayed in the Malaika suit, the rooms were cleaned every day and beds were comfortable. The owner Karim can speak good english and french. It is convienently located near the entrance of the medina and one can safley go to the food street even late at night. We would highly recommend it and will stay there on our next visit.

This was a wonderful start to the year, with new friends, new experiences, and memories right from the start.

We took off to Fes to rejuvenate ourselves, relax and explore a new country. The holiday was great with many memorable places and experiences. We ended our stay and started the New Year at the Riad Dar Skalli, the staff exceeded themselves in offering us a wonderful, friendly efficient, service. We arrived on New Years Eve and soon became part of the international party atmosphere so well created by the unstuffy, relaxed atmosphere in the Riad. It was an inclusive event, the staff all worked very hard to ensure we had a good time, we certainly did but the real pleasure was that they did too.

Despite our small room (we booked late) it was very comfortable and nicely decorated, very clean and well cared for. The terrace offers fabulous views over the city to the Middle Atlas mountains and a real sun trap for those searching for rays in the winter months.

We thoroughly recommend Riad Dar Skalli and hope to return ourselves before too long.

After the excellent reviews we expected perhaps a little more. The rooms are clean and well decorated. The riad itself is beautiful and well situated for access to the medina and tourist restaurants. The rooms do not all face inwards which means they are quiet at night. This was one of the main reasons for our choice as we have found in the past that sleep in many charming riads can be disturbed by noise from the courtyard. There are the usual [ for Morocco ] loose fittings such as taps and shower-heads. The staff were welcoming and efficient but in all honesty we felt that there was a lack of generosity. The breakfast was typical and satisfactory but certainly nothing special.

I really liked this Riad. It was a beautifull, spacius riad with verry nice, hospitable people.
Located just 5 minutes from the action.
Reasonably priced, especially for what it offers.

One small downside was that the shower did not really warm up. But considering the rest it did not bother me.
