Riad Algida is an excellent place to stay. The spacious room (Junior Suite) is tastefully decorated with antiques and has comfortable beds, heating and a very well functioning bathroom. During our one-week stay during Christmas 2016 we found in every moment an excellent and helpful service that has Swiss level. Every morning we enjoyed an extensive breakfast, on sunny mornings...

This hotel is nicely located in the Medina of Fès. "Suites" are essentially small rooms with an equally small conservatory. The interior is tastefully done. Done international TV channels are available but reception can be erratic. What lets down this rather nice but pricey hotel is the service. Tempers can fly high ...

Algila is a great riad for three reasons: 1. Rooms are beautiful...we loved the attention to detail. 2. Houda and the rest of the staff are professional and always ready with a mint tea. 3. There are pleasant restaurant options nearby.

Very beautiful and tastefully designed riad in heart of Fes medina. I stayed there last week w my college aged son. The staff are lovely - Fatima and others helped us arrange a knowledgeable guide one morning, printed out train schedules and our plane tickets, were gracious when we were late for breakfast, and tolerated my attempts to practice French....

The Algila Fes riad offers charming, personal service in a stunning setting. Both the public and the private spaces of the riad are perfectly lovely. The staff members go out of their way to ensure their guest's comfort. We often encountered staff members outside of the riad, running their errands or heading home. They always stopped to say hello and...

We spent three nights at the Algila Fes and loved it. It is a traditional riad, closed to the outside but warm and welcoming and luxurious inside. The staff are warm, English speaking, attentive and professional. All the rooms are beautiful and open on to an interior courtyard.Some are up a flight of stairs. The bed was comfortable, the linens...

Charming ryad in the heart of Fes medina. Comfy and spacious rooms. But the highlight of this place is their staff. Very friendly and helpful. In particular I would like to thank their manager Houda. Who introduced us an excellent guide and also helped us with many other arrangements. Definitely coming back again.

If you want a traditional experience with unparalleled customer service, the Algila is your best choice. From the moment I made my reservation, until my departure, the staff was professional, attentive, and quite courteous. Located inside the Medina (only pedestrian traffic to the hotel, so pack light, or use suitcases that can be pushed easily), you are in the heart...

Since I last wrote a review of this awesome Riad, it has slipped from No 7 to No 9 on Tripadvisor. I can't imagine why? It is just as good as it was the first time I stayed here, and is undoubtedly one of the best options in the old medina. One of the nice things about this place is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled at the end of a quiet street, near the heart of the ancient labyrinth of the medina of Fez, the Algilà Fès offers a charming base for exploring the souks and monuments of the loveliest of Morocco’s imperial cities. The hotel is comprised of three inter-connected 18th century residences, each an architectural gem in its own right, offering modern comforts in a traditional setting. The hotel’s five suites and seven guest rooms are arrayed around three separate courtyards fitted with fountains, palm trees and sitting areas.This unique configuration lends itself to individual travelers and couples as well as to families and small groups, as parties requiring four or more rooms can reserve a section of the building for their private use. ... more   less
