We arrived at the Riad on New Year's eve and were met by Saffer and Imane who gave us an exceptionally warm welcome. We stayed in the Chambre des Champs which is the one room with a view overlooking Fez and the fields beyond. The whole Riad is decorated with exceptional taste and a breathtaking attention to detail and the...

really sumptuous, private environment. beautiful gardens (altho pool too cold to swim in), beautiful architecture. attention to detail amazing. fantastic room with view, could not wish for more... note however, that you share a riad with someone else and we shared it with 2 families with young children, who were up at 6am screaming for an hour. not ideal...

One of the best "hotels" I have ever stayed anywhere in the world. Traditional riad experience. Tiling and architecture at its best. Spacious gardens, quiet location, beautiful pool, warm service, great room, super breakfast/crepes. We dined there too - try the pastisa (wow), couscous, tagine.

Staying here is a very special and unusual experience. We were attracted initially by the fact that it has a pool and a decent sized one at that albeit it was refreshingly cold. Having said that when you have been bustling through the medina for hours or been lolling in the 36c heat all day that is most welcome. The...

This is an astonishing place. Well past our usual standard of accommodation but was it ever worth the money. We had the Jardins de Roses suites as it was all the we could really stretch to. If this is the cheap room, heaven knows what the others must be like. For the price you pay the accommodation is just magnificent....

We felt like we were called to this place, and spent our 4 days there like the Sultans of old. The rooms are all unique and every space has been touched with an artist's hand, not overdone and supremely comfortable, like staying in a friend's home, if a palatial one. The garden, the pool, the terraces are all delightful to...

The gardens, the pool, the food n the rooms were all gorgeous. The pool is not only beautiful, but a blessing. It felt like being in your own palace. Staff was attentive but you hardly hear or see them. The reconstruction of the Riad is neatly done, and they are working on a second Riad next door. Don’t miss roof...

Fes is fabulous, but the real high point of my recent holiday there, my third vacation in Morocco, was the glorious Riad Alkantara. From the moment of our arrival, we knew we were in a very special place. It immediately sets the mood for an authentic, but luxurious, Moroccan idyll. Fettah, the owner and host, is as charming and fascinating...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Alkantara is an exceptional location within the walls of the medieval city of Fes; it is a hidden enchantment in the heart of a shaded area surrounded by 5 riads of different periods and architectural styles that have been restored with patience and passion to unite modern comfort and the splendours of the past in an exquisite alchemy. The garden has a vast swimming pool surrounded by greenery and supplied with pure spring water, there are many fountains and patios, where you can relax and listen to the birds soothing singing. At nightfall the delicate light breeze from the Atlas Mountains highlights the assorted fragrances of musk, jasmine and honeysuckle. The oriental sweetness and delicacy is revealed. In the vein of Italian theatre, the esplanades located at various levels are very well adapted to all types of events, whether cultural, artistic or just for amusement. Riad Alkantara also has its lounge bar and smoking area on a shaded terrace, a restaurant where cuisine inspired from all over the world is served, traditional Moroccan cuisine which is served in the guest dining room, a shop selling traditional Moroccan clothes and decorative items ... more   less
