I cannot recommend Dar Essoaoude more highly. The dar is lovely, clean, and perfectly situated to explore the medina. Fatima, Amina, and Amine were wonderful to all of us and always went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. We ate dinner every evening at the dar, and were spoiled with all of Amina's cooking. Everything she made was exceptional, even my 8 year old daughter who is very picky loved Amina's cooking.
The furnishings are simple in their elegance and made to make guests comfortable. We ate a lovely breakfast each morning on the terrace overlooking Bab Rcif.
I hope we can return to the care of Fatima and her staff and enjoy Fes again in the near future.

Our trip started with a driver organised by the owner to pick us up from the airport. After 15 minutes on recently refurbished road through the new town we arrived to the medina. This Dar is ideally located close to one of the medina's main entrance. One of the staff was waiting for us at the gate and took our luggage to the house. We were then welcomed with tea and sweets. The house is newly renovated with an impressive attention to details, every bit of traditional decoration is available here, from zellige to cedar doors and ceiling and carved plaster. The room was very confortable and always clean. The house manager, Fatima was very keen in showing us around and explaining the medina history and secrets. As it was my birthday, she organised some traditional dancers and singers during an unforgettable lunch time on the terrace overseeing the medina.
I greatly recommend this Dar where you feel like home.
Our stay was amazing!!!! This is a beautiful home, excellent staff and great location.
Taxi stand 2 mins walk. Caretaker Fatima is like family and welcomed us with great Moroccan food! This is a great location if you visit Fez, in the heart of old town medina. You will not be disappointed. We lived here with our four kids. The steps are not as steep as other riads and the layout of the home is perfect for families with kids or even without kids. Normally terraces are a floor above the home-rooftop. In this Riad, the terrace is at bedroom level overlooking rcif square. There is a dining table on terrace and a great place to congregate in evenings.
Happy to say we all felt at home during our one week stay!
