I arrived in Fez at about 1am after my train broke down and got in a taxi to the police station (this was advised by locals I met on the train) near the hotel to get help finding my way through the medina. The police handed me over to one of the scam boys who charge you to lead you...

This was a lovely hotel for my friend and I. Everything was clearly explained by the owner and Adin, an employee, was extremely hospitable and helpful towards us answering any questions we had. Very clean and beautiful place that I'd recommend.

I loved staying Here! The staff and owner were very friendly and the place is absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend staying here in the heart of the medina. Getting information on the history of the building and sitting and having tea with the manager when we checked in was a great way to start a wonderful stay at the Riad.

Unfortunately, due to a schedule change with the airlines, we arrived later than first planned, so we had just a bit of time at the Riad. We were met by the owner at the taxi, and he pointed out the gates into the Medina. We told him we hadn't the time to explore. It was a long, winding way into...

It was simply fantastic, the riad itself was converted from an art museum. Very artistic and Arabic styled, the room is clean and tidy with air conditioning. The three floor little complex with amazing staffs also had a beautiful rooftop that has the entire view of Fes. Make sure to try their dinner menu on the rooftop on a summer...

My stay at this lovely Riad was a complete delight. The owners went out of their way to extend me every kindness, and the food was wonderful. One of the family members is an architect by training, and he was most generous with his time in explaining the original fixtures of the hotel as well as the reconstructions that are...

The hotel is situated in an area that is easy to reach from the Bab Rcif and close to the police station should anything go awry. I had no trouble finding my way from the hotel to the souks - clear signages helped tremendously. The interior of the hotel is beautifully restored, with plenty of shared spaces overlooking the courtyard....

The service is amazing. My friends recommend me to stay in this hotel, and it is indeed excellent. The building is in 17th century style, and the food is very nice. The breakfast is delicious and generous. The location is great, which is in the center of the old city Fes. The owner is very friendly:)
