I enjoyed every bit of my stay at Riad Dar Bensouda. I am a twenty-something female who traveled alone, and very welcomed by all of the staff members. Hamid was so patient with me, and Mohammad was so friendly. The hammam experience was one of a kind! I loved it so much the first day, I decided to do it...

The riad is in the heart of the medina and is tricky to find - it's best to call just prior to your arrival at one of the medina entrance gates so that they can have a porter there to meet you and take care of your baggage for 30 or 40 Dirhams. Breakfast is quite good and plentiful, but...

We enjoyed our stay at Dar Bensouda! Hamid could not have been more helpful and attentive to our every need! He arranged transportation to and from the train station and even had someone buy our first class tickets for us to Rabat! Our room was beautiful (as was the rest of the Riad) and we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner...

Absolutely loved our stay at Dar Bensouda. Like most ryads in the Medina, this hotel looks plain from the outside but is large and intricately-detailed on the inside. The rooms are spacious, clean and in true Moroccan style. Even better, the staff could not be nicer. After arriving worn out from a 3-day desert tour, we were immediately served tea...

I recently stayed at Dar Bensouda when travelling solo through Morocco and thought it was wonderful. Very tastefully and traditionally renovated, it provided a secure and serene ambience to retreat to in-between explorations of the surrounding vivid and animated atmosphere of the old town and medina. Said and the staff were unfailingly polite and helpful, and arranged reliable and knowledgeable...

I just came back from our holiday in Morocco with 3 friends, and amongst our destinations and hotels, was the Dar Bensouda in Fès. We stayed here for 2 nights. At arrival we did not arrange a transfer, which caused us to grab a taxi. But since cars cannot enter the medina, and since this hotel is sitauted in the...

It was a pleasure to stay with them. It is clean, beds are super comfortable; food is amazing; staff are always willing to go out of their way to help you. It was relaxing and enjoyable. They would also organize a guided visit around the Medina and the Ville Nouvelle for you. Highly recommended!
