Reviewed 18 October 2016

This Riad was recommended to us by the community of TA. We enjoyed our stay here, the location of this Dar in the old medina offered us the best experience to visit Fez in good conditions. We had the big Maria for me and my husband and our two daughters, our suite was so spacious clean and very confortable. We ate dinner two times here food is so delicious and the chicken tagine was top.
Breakfast is unique bio and organic and the " bisarra" was the best soup we had in Morocco. Thank you so much Younes, Naim and Amina for the lovely experience you offered us.

Room Tip: The big Masria suite could accommodate 4 persons, ideal for families

Everything was planned in little details. The room was great, with a nice sofa, table, wardrobe and a very big bathroom. Extremely clean, even with local soaps available. I would just replace the bed with a bigger one.

Naim and all the other colleagues were wonderful. Breakfast and afternoon tea in the terrace were delicious too.

The only negative thing is that the raid is a bit far from the parking area so you can easily get lost. Better to ask for help or call the riad in advance too coordinate with them.

My mother and I stayed here just this week for 4 nights on her 65th birthday trip. From beginning to end, the Dar Attajalli family made us feel at home. Youenes, the manager, offered wonderful communication beforehand including a warning of "tour guides" we might meet on our train ride to Fes. We were able to arrange transfer to and from the train station and all went without a hitch. Naim, essentially the day manager, chef, all-around go-to, met us at our car and helped with our luggage. He always met us with a smile and was more than willing to help with our requests.

We ate dinner at the riad twice and it was fantastic! Breakfast was a delightful treat. Naim even remembered how we took our coffee (w/milk for Mom, just black for me). Amina, part of the house staff, was wonderfully warm and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed interacting with both of them and we felt at home relaxing in the lounge area just off the courtyard/lobby. I recommend brushing up on your French as both Naim and Amina only marginally speak English. Our somewhat clumsy communication was fun, funny and endearing to all of us. They were very patient with my horrible French.

Mom and I stayed in the first floor mauve (?) suite. The ceiling must have been 20+ feet and the mosaic abounds! It was breath taking. The terrace is a narrow 4.5 stories up, but a must-see at least once.

We got lost in the medina at least twice, so I would suggest getting a map and probably making your way back before sunset. Attajalli is a beautiful riad with beautiful people. I would stay here again and recommend you do the same.

We spent 3 nights at this amazing Riad. Once we made our reservation we received an email offering help with directions, transfers and dinners propostions.
We ate at Dar Attajalli during our short visit 3 times, the food was just the best we had in morocco and the chicken tagine was with no doubt the best.
The breakfast was very delicious and rich.
The Manager helped us arranging our trip in morocco and the choices of the hotels and restaurants were so good and good value for money.
Thank you so much for hosting us and hope to see you again .

We stayed at Dar Attajalli after recommendation from Friend already stayed here before. What a lovely house with special touch, we had the felling we were at home.
The manager of the place helped us to arrange the pick up from the airport and excursions, he encouraged us to discover the Medina of Fez without hiring guide but he gave us all the requested information such map and business card.
We ate at this beautiful Riad the first night, with no doubt the best food we had in Morocco ! the Tagine and the Salads were the best. The breakfast so Moroccan and special, rich and Natural, we love it !
We enjoyed our stay here and we will be happy to come again.

Room Tip: The Purple Suite is the best

We spent 2 nights here. During our stay, we were made to feel like house guests not customers. The staff were all very welcoming and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Bilel was amazing and was always friendly and helpful. He went above and beyond in making our stay perfect.

I was more than impressed with my stay at Darius Attajalli. The manager was very welcoming and the staff members that we dealt with were very polite, warm and hard working. It was refreshing to be greeted with smiles every morning and to have the feeling that someone genuinely cared enough to make your experience a good one. One staff member, Bilal, was particularly memorable. He even offered to give us a tour around the Medina one night after he was done his shift.

The breakfast was good, mint tea was always being offered, and the dinner on the terrace was quite memorable. I would definitely recommend staying here.
