Dar Hafsa is a great place to sleep while visiting Fes. Located in a very small street only short walk from the main street this is wonderful location for exploring the city. The house is beautiful and the rooms are charming and very clean. Above all the owner Abdul Carim and the Riad's team are very kind and very helpful....

Dar Hafsa is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of Medina life in Fes. Kareem, Sufjan and all the hosts at the Dar were extremely hospitable and friendly. Close to two of the Medina gates, Dar Hafsa caters to guests looking for a taste of Fassi life that has existed for over a millennium. The owner Kareem is more...

This is a lovely property with the most hospitable staff I've ever met! Our room was clean, cozy and quiet. The breakfast was more than ample and served with lots of lovely Moroccan coffee. We enjoyed several wonderful meals at places that Abdul recommended. One night he even walked us to the place and made sure that we ordered what...

We were given extensive instructions on how to get to this lovely place to stay. The location is in the heart of fes el Bali, the old city. It is located 30 seconds off a busy lane, so is out of the way enough for there not to be a constant babble under your window. They have furnished a lovely...

Can't say enough wonderful things about this Riad! The owner is fantastic, making our short stay in Fes memorable and worry free! They took care of everything - including arranging for a guide to show us around the city. Ali made sure the guide took care of us. For dinner, we overheard another couple compliment Ali about his recommendation for...

From the first moment we felt like home. After a warmhearted welcome we got served a fresh mint tea. We had a really good feeling from the first moment. We arrived in the evening and Sofian the friendliest guy we met in Marocco offered to order some food because we haven't had dinner at this time. The room was really...

This was my second time staying at this riad - and I would come back again and again! This is a beautiful property that is over 600 years old, but has been fully renovated and is absolutely splendid to stay in. It's in a quiet alley in the medina - a short walk away from all the hustle and bustle....

I have had a lovely time here. Although I was only able to stay two nights, with the generous assistance of my host, Abdul, I was able to pack a lot into my short time in Fes. This is a riad that will only improve with time as the owner's plans become reality. Finishing touches to the roof terrace will...

Stayed for a week mid-march 2017. The owner and the two staff were very welcoming and helpful. They give very good tips on bargaining and prices for local shops and tours - though I found I wasn't very good at this. I also got on very well with the other guests and I think this is encouraged by the friendly...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Hafsa is a traditional 19th century Morocccan home. Recently renovated, the house is a beautiful example of fine Moroccan craftsmanship. The ornate tile work and painted doors reflect the best in cultural design. An open floor plan with multiple indoor balconies gives the house a cozy feeling, but not at the expense of privacy. A roof-top terrace offers an expansive view of the Fes Medina and the Riff Mountains.This lovely accommodation is seven minutes from the Blue Gate (Bab Bouljoud), and a simple right-hand turn from the main street (derb sidi safi souiket ben safi talaa sghira) and souk. It is situated on a quiet, clean byway. Those looking for a more authentic Fes stay will find themselves a reasonable distance from hustle and bustle of the shopping and trade.You will feel welcome at Dar Hafsa by the family who manages the guest house, Mariam and Aziz and their parents. They are friendly and generous. English, French, and Arabic languages are spoken well, along with some Spanish and German. Your comfort and satisfaction is assured, and the family can share their local knowledge to enrich your stay. ... more   less
