My husband and I came here on our honeymoon, and Riad Le Calife was our only stop over in Morocco before returning to Spain for the remainder of our vacation. Our time at the riad was truly incredible, and we owe it all to the hospitality and generosity of Alex & Yasmine. My husband had booked our room (the Diamante...

This was my first trip to Morocco and we started our trip in Fez. My husband booked Riad Le Calife based on online reviews and their website, and our expectations were far exceeded. The Riad is a wonderful oasis in the midst of the bustling Fes Medina. We were greeted by the wonderful proprietress Yasmin and her fabulous dog Darwin...

We stayed at Riad Le Calife for two nights and were dissapointed overall given the strong reviews on tripadvisor. At the time of booking this was ranked #1 and having stayed in other Riad's in Fez, we would not agree with this ranking. I think most over rated was the service. We would call it average at best and we...

We booked this riad because of it's #1 rating on Trip Advisor and it actually exceeded our expectations (the pictures don't begin to do it justice). The phrase "hidden gem" is possibly a bit overused but that's exactly what this riad was, tucked away within the crazy lanes of the Fes medina. The place was spectacular, beautifully decorated by the...

A wonderful experience our hosts were the best we came across in Morocco, even the dog Darwin was very friendly. If your going to Fes don't miss this. Also try to take a cooking lesson in the kitchen my wife really enjoyed it.

My husband and I will daydream about returning here. Yasmine and Alex make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. The whole riad is stunningly decorated with beautiful objects elegantly placed. From the roof terrace to the bar lounge to the individual rooms, the whole place is breathtaking. They have an in-house dinner which should not to be...

Can't recommend Riad le Calife highly enough. Best place we stayed in Morocco. Great location, stunningly beautiful Riad, super friendly staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Yasmine, Alex - we had a great time. Thanks so much!

Riad Le Calife was one of the highlights in our 14-day trip around Morocco. The place is unique, combining the autenticity of the traditional riad with the charm and confort of a boutique hotel. Nice details, like a radio-alarm clock with a good selection of music that comes from a pen drive, a mini bar (not common in most of...

Like everybody else who has reviewed Riad Le Calife we were blown away by it – the ambience of the place together with the warmth of Alex, Yasmine and the staff makes this the top place to stay in Fes. I cannot add to the reviews – they say everything about the place in terms of luxury, food (except you...
