The Palais Amani is a lovely hotel; excellent service, nice roof top bar, great garden courtyard and the standard of finish is the rooms is extremely high. The location at the bottom of the Medina means most of the key sites are within easy walking distance. The Medina in Fes is a real warren so book a guide and make... More

Gorgeous riad in the Fes medina. We highly encourage anyone to make it part of their journey through Morocco. The central courtyard was gorgeous and relaxing, the rooftop a great place to take in the views and the rooms spacious.

My wife and I took a short vacation for a first time Fez visit. This hotel is boutique beautiful and the ambiance is sensational. The food was plentiful and great. What truly differentiated this experience was the proficiency, professionalism, and friendliness of the people. All were exceptional starting with Ali at breakfast and continuing throughout the day.

This riad is a sight for sore eyes! One enters off a narrow, grubby alley way. One knocks on a fine 15 foot door. It opens and one finds oneself in another world. A spacious beautiful riad. This riad was once a princely home which fell into disrepair and was saved by an enterprising young couple. The rooms are very... More

The room was very good, the amenities fine, the restaurant and the service first class. One remark: while the glass in the windows facing the interior court were opaque - the door was absolutely transparent, so one has to hide behind curtains. The maid leaves them open - on purpose - so anybody can look into the room the lacks... More

We arrived into Fes late at night. We were whisked out of the car into a narrow alley, all the while wondering where we were going. The doors opened on to the most amazing surprise.

This is an excellent boutique hotel set amidst a lovely small garden area. It is very peaceful and quite chic for a hotel inside the Medina. The staff are very welcoming and helpful.

The staff was very helpful and the rooms were lovely. The garden in the middle was magical. The hotel is a quiet Oassis on the edge of the Medina. Going down the alley to get to the hotel looks like you are headed to a dump but that is the way of the Medina. When you go into the hotel... More
