Dar Bouanania
Ranked #161 of 216 Fes B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 February 2009

We stayed at Dar Bouanania one night out of the three that we stayed in Fez - we would have happily stayed there all three if we could have (it's a long story). The riad is easy to find by following the signs once you are on the main street of the medina, and it is nice that it is down a side street rather than on the main 'drag'. It is beautifully decorated and a real haven from the bustle of the streets outside.

We were given the choice of a room without an ensuite on the ground floor or one with a shower and toilet on the top floor. We chose the ground floor room for 2 reasons: 1-the top floor room was 4 flights up VERY steep and VERY narrow stairs and we never would have made it with our luggage; and 2-to be honest the bathroom smelled rather awful. We noticed this smell in most of the places we stayed in Morooco though, I think it has to do with the water itself rather than the cleanliness of the hotel. Certainly the cleaners did a great job so I don't think it was their fault. Regardless, we preferred to use the bathroom out in the hall rather than have it in our room.

The rooms are quite small but comfortable. There was plenty of bedding and we had a heater in our room. I felt that the breakfast was overpriced compared to what we could have had out in the medina, but it was nice to sit in the common area to have it. The riad is looked after at night by a gentleman who ensures that everyone entering is staying there and sees to any problems you have, so in that respect we felt safe and looked after.

I would have no hesitation recommending Dar Bouanania to anyone staying in Fez. However, if you have mobility issues you would need to arrange to have a ground floor room. One final point, you are not able to book this riad online so you either need to ring in advance or arrive around 11am and ask if anyone is checking out that afternoon.
