I highly recommend Dar Houdou! From the warm welcome to gorgeous room and delicious breakfast, this was easily the best place we've stayed in Morocco. The heater and electric blanket ensured we were nice and cosy. Steve, Mohammed and Sadia made us feel right at home (hot water bottle and all!) Thanks for a lovely stay :)

This riad is very well situated, just 5 minutes walking from the Blue Gate. Rooms are not very big but enough for a double bed and private toilet. Breakfast is simply amazing! I had some issues with my booking, but they took me to a different and better riad, so worthy contacting them by email before going.

In addition to all of the good things said in other reviews (it's a great spot - no need to re-state it), this place has what I found to be the ideal location in the medina. It's close to the blue gate, so you have easy access to taxis, etc, and it's positioned between the 2 main roads in the...

Could only say positive things about this place. The actual accommodation was amazing and clean. Each morning we got breakfast (even when we had to get up early to leave for day tours). And it wasn't just any breakfast, it was a table full of fruits, coffee, tea, breads, spreads and various other Moroccan foods. Steven was most helpful with...

experience a different culture from the comfort of this riad. In the medina you are a short walk away from all the sights that scare or interest you. Great position, friendly,hands on owner,not luxurious but if you want all that go to the Hilton.

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at this wonderful guest house situated within an easy walk of Bab Boujaloud and the local restaurants. Mohamed the manager speaks very good English and is a gold mine of useful information on where to go in the medina. The owner, Steve, is a lovely chap and also a great source of local knowledge for...

Steve the owner, is an expat who knows exactly what travellers need. Above all things honesty. He got a reliable driver to pick me up from train station. He explained clearly how to find your way around the old city in Fez. He told of 2 restaurants that do not overcharge and give good quality food. The beds are very...

“The rooms are a bit tight for three (they add a mattress on the floor), for two are more than good. We travel during Ramadan, which is why the quality of the sleep is influenced by the different pace of life that lead the Muslims during that period, at the same time very interesting.”
