The owners, Alex and Yasmine, were very hospitable and full of top tips on where to eat, visit and so much more. We stayed in the Topaz room and would... More

Amazing Riad! the atmosphere was so good, the room was cosy and nicely decorated, the view of the Medina from roof terrace was outstanding. Yasmine and Alex are super friendly and they helped us having the best possible stay in Fez. Highly recommended Fatima's cuisine!

We are so happy with our stay at Riad Le Calife. Our only regret was leaving it. Yasmine and Alex were the perfect hostess and host. But, we really felt like it was our home also.

Stayed 4 nights and would have happily stayed longer. The riad is very conveniently located just off a main road into the medina, but is easy to reach and very quiet. There's a beautiful courtyard and a rooftop area with stunning views over Fes. Alex and Yasmine, the owners, can't do enough to make your stay special in every way.... More

We were welcomed to this wonderful oasis hidden among the tiny alleys of the oldest Medina in the world by an exuberant Alex, a Parisian transplant to Fes. Alex and his wife Yasmina, a Fes native, transformed one of the old riads of Fes into a place of grace and beauty. Taking the best of Arabic culture, architecture and decorative... More
