Very beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Old Fez. Made even better by the staff of Dar El Menia! I will be returning in March and will book here again! I found the cookery classes were great and going to the local market to get the ingredients & then making it was great but the taste and enjoyment eating...

Couldn't be better. We spent our new year eve in the house. We were the only ones inside the house. It was quiet and clean. We enjoyed the perfect homemade dinner on top of the terrace and had a great time with the manager.

The Dar was unbelievably beautiful. They have large, high ceilinged rooms. It was very clean and they have a beautiful terrace with a great view! The location was great. Latefa was extremely helpful and arranged taxi to the airport and a great guided tour of the Medina for us. Breakfast in the morning was made by a very kind, welcoming...

I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 day stay at Dar el-Menia. My sister and I had this beautiful 300 year old house to ourselves. The manager, Issam, met us at the taxi stand and brought us to the house, tucked away just off the Old City’s main drag, the Talaa Kebira, and close to shopping and most of the historic sites....

We were 8 people travelling, so we rented the whole riad. It's a nice place to stay, close to many interesting places in the city (restaurants, souks and museums). Staff was helpful. Breakfast was good. Rooms were clean and the riad is well maintained.

With just four guest rooms the house really felt like our home during our stay. It is in the heart of the old town and approached through an astonishingly narrow alleyway - you would never find it unless you were guided in. The stucco, tiles, woodwork and lanterns are wonderful - do not expect modern standards of insulation etc -...

I have been to the hotel in spring 2012. It is a nice traditional guest house. You shouldn't expect a luxury house however the mixture between the moroccan& spanish style of the rooms and the hall is very nice. Rooms are quite big and clean. The area around is noisy but inside the hotel is quite. WI-FI is available but...

There are many things to recommend Dar El Menia including its authenticity, location and very friendly and helpful staff. But if you are looking for a place with creature comforts, this may not be the riad for you - there is no air conditioning, iffy plumbing and as the rooms all open up onto each other, not a lot of...

The Dar El Menia is a beautifully renovated riad in the Fès medina, right off the Thalaa Kbila. There are wonderful decorations of carved wood, alabast and colourful mosaics, that you can study for hours and still not have memorized all the details, and the lounge/courtroom is light and airy. The staff is very kind and helpful and the riad...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar El Menia lies in the heart of Fes (Fez) Medina, former imperial capital of Morocco and the world’s largest medieval medina. Fes is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but it is not a museum it is a living, breathing city and Dar El Menia provides the perfect luxurious base to begin exploring the old and the new. This dar, or courtyard house, is at least 250 years old and has recently been completely restored using local craftsmen, techniques and materials. ... more   less
