Beautiful 17th century building, located in the andalous quarter of the medina of Fez, Karawan Riad offers 7 suites decorated with attention to every detail. This will never stop amazing you during all your stay. Location is convenient: in a tranquil corner of the medina, yet very easy to reach. Each room is unique, with original antique furnitures, rugs and artwork pieces, wisely blended with modern facilities. The common lounges (library and tea room) offer a great place to rest after a day of walking in the medina. The young local Chef Outhmane Choumi restaurant offers an affordable Bistro menu for lunch and more clever twist meals for dinner. There is also an traditionnal hammam (moist heat and traditionnal ritual ) and massage sessions can be booked.

Great Great Great. Just need to start providing wine with dinner. Food was delicious. Cold in the winter in the common areas.... It's a Riad, so it's to be expected. Staff was excellent. They coordinated tour guides and anything we asked.

I had the chance to visit Fès and to stay at Karawan Riad for a weekend. The riad is located inside the medina not far at all from the only road entering the old city. The building itself is beautifully decorated from top to bottom with a peaceful courtyard and a stunning

From the moment we landed the service was fantastic. When my friends and I entered the Riad we were blown away. It was beautiful and the decor was everything we had hoped for. The staff was attentive and beyond helpful. They assisted us with guides, advice and kept the Riad

I have stayed at Karawan for a night and it was one of the most beautiful hotels/roads I have been. Contemporary, modern, tasteful and stylish. We didn't need a guide since we have been to Fes for 5 days by the time we have arrived Karawan. It is conveniently located near

Hi ... I booked thru booking . com and found them responsive as well. I suggest trying directly through the “contact me” on their web site. TA won’t allow me to post the link on this page but it’s easy to find. Loved this hotel. Enjoy!

Hi brudvid, As I was myself a guest in this incredible Riad and as I was about to send friends to Karawan, so we have been on the Trip Advisor page to look for other travelers reviews. I was very surprised by the low ranking of Karawan Riad who was for me and by far the best Riad and boutique hotel I ever been. Of course we read your comment as it was the lowest rating on this specific hotel and surprisingly words were consistent with my experience that I rated 5 stars.Then I read the owner's answer and I realized that during my stay in Fez I have been repeatedly deceived by the Trip Advisor rankings while I consider it normally reliable in the others places where I have been. For example I wanted to have traditional diner so I have been to a very well ranked restaurant in a Riad on the little place near Karawan Riad and it was just average (on the contrary of a lot of look alike stellar reviews) and rooms were even worse as we ask to visit as it was in the 3 best hotel in Fez. The day after we have been to the Palais de Fez on the same place (on the Karawan manager advise) for diner and it was really great food. Everybody seems to know it, even tourists guides books. So my question is: are you only a lunatic reviewer that is messing people by mistake or are you part of this big mess? If so I have to tell you that such behaving is forbidden and therefore shall be reported to Trip Advisor for then no to fool there followers. I'm waiting for your answer before any reporting.
TripAdvisor me fait parvenir votre question mais je pense que c'est une erreur d'aiguillage car il semble qu'elle ne soit pas destinée à Karawan Riad. Cependant, même si nous ne pouvons pas être aussi clairs que vous car nous ne voulons incriminer personne de nos collègues (la ville de Fés est une ville où tout finit par se savoir), nous trouvons qu'effectivement certains classements et commentaires sont objectivement étonnants. Nous avons signalé le commentaire de la personne dont vous parlez à Trip Advisor mais ils ont fini par considérer ce commentaire comme conforme à leur politique !!! Ils ont probablement dans la forme mais certainement pas dans l'esprit, ce qui revient à laisser se développer une utilisation abusive de la caisse de résonance qu'est devenu Trip Advisor pour les petites structures comme la nôtre. C'est effectivement décevant mais peut être pas définitif car il semble que Trip Advisor soit en train de chercher une solution pour éviter que des personnes ne fassent un commentaire sur un endroit où ils ne sont jamais allés. En attendant, nous sommes condamnés à subir quelques actes de malveillance de temps en temps. Même si ce message ne nous était pas destiné, nous serions très intéressés de savoir si cette personne vous répond car pour nous, c'est un faux profil.

"Chergui suite is great for 3 pax, with enough space and division to feel like 2 rooms."
"Amarett suite is on the 3rd floor looking down into the courtyard"
"We stay in the terrace room which is the African room, we had a private patio where we had breakfast served one morning. No elevator though."
