“Fantastic week...wish we could stay here longer”
Reviewed December 28, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We travel frequently throughout the world for months at a time and often rent flats and houses to give ourselves a break from hotels. Dar Jameel is one of the best houses we have ever rented in every way. Needless to say, the house is decorated with immaculate taste.
For two or four people the house is more than comfortably large with two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, one full bathroom with a shower and loo as well as a separate loo off the main room of the house. Plenty of hot water and super water pressure.
Everything in the house has been beautifully restored and thought through with all the modern conveniences, modern furniture suitable for the house and every comfort. TV, DVD and CD player, telephone, excellent wi-fi everywhere, washing machine, oven and range, hair driers, electric heaters and a/c in the top floor bedroom, electric blankets, a full range of kitchen appliances...and more.
Duvets and blankets on the beds, proper reading lights and bed tables, plenty of electric outlets and lights, wardrobes with hangers...
The kitchen has everything including sharp knives for cooking, everything you need to prepare a proper meal, cafetières, beautiful crockery you will want to take home, iron and ironing board, washing powder, washing up liquid, cooking oil, salt and pepper, coffee, tea, tea towels, paper towels...
The glory of the house is the two terraces on top, one lower with a table and chairs and a washing line, one higher up with a lounge sofa and canopy should you want to ward off the sun that floods the terrace for most of the day. We had our breakfast and lunch here every day in the sun and, yes, we had many long climbs up the narrow stairs from the ground floor kitchen to take everything up to the top, but it was worth it. And we stayed for hours afterwards enjoying the fabulous views of the medina and the mountains beyond from our seat.
The manager, Mohammed, collected us from the bus station and took us in a car to the Blue Gate where we were met by a man with a cart who transported our bags to Dar Jameel as we all followed him through the medina streets. Easy to follow. And actually. it is easy to find the house once you know how as it is literally a few steps from the main medina street, Talaa Seghira, yet very peaceful and seemingly secluded from the action. The pickup was included in the rental.
Mohammed gave us a free breakfast our first morning at Dar Houdou, their nearby hotel. He was always available if we needed any help...at the end of the telephone in the house. A maid arrived after four days to change the sheets and towels...with some gift Moroccan sweets.
Dar Jameel is perfectly located for very good and reasonable restaurants, for reaching all the sights and you can walk bravely everywhere. After the first two or three days, you will stop feeling lost and feel like you can navigate your way around intuitively to one of the two main roads through the medina.
Shopping for our food and other necessities was easy. We made one trip to the Carrefours Supermarket at the Borj Fes shopping centre in a taxi (7 MAD) to stock up. We shopped for fruit and veg every day at the open market at the end of Talaa Kebira near the Bab Boujloud and were always charged local prices. A ten minute walk away. Shopping was easy here.
We recommend Cafe Clock and The Ruined Garden for outstandingly good food, good ambience and reasonable prices. Both are easy to get to from the house and only ten minutes away.
Fes was a place where taxi drivers charged us real prices on the meter all the time without being asked.
We paid £300 for the week in December 2015 over the Christmas holiday without any of the normal ripoff supplements you are charged in other countries for Christmas stays. We tthoight this was fantastic value given the size and comfort and location of Dar Jameel. Communication with the owner, Steve was easy before we booked and he answered all our many queries before we booked.
How we wish we had a Dar Jameel in every country we visit.
Thank you Steve and Mohammed.

“Fantastic Fez holiday in traditional, cosy Medina house”
Reviewed January 21, 2015 for a stay in December 2014
2
people found this review helpful

We truly enjoyed our two week Fez and Middle Atlas holiday. The house is a compact, traditional Fez house in the middle of the Medina. It is fully equipped and furnished and offers great view to medina and Fez hills. Kitchen and bathroom are clean. Beds are comfortable. WiFi is fast enough. House location is perfect. Steve and his staff are very helpful and professional. They provided us extra guidance for city and outdoor activities. We decided to choose the optional brekfast which was available at Steve's riad located just 6 min walk away. All in all this 2014 Christmas holiday was a fantastic time in a beautiful location.

“a beautiful Marrocan house in the middle of the Fes inner city”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

In the middle of the Inner city of Fes - the medina - is Steve's Marrocan house. Everything is perfect: the house is typical local style and more than big enough to house our family of five. Steve is a very nice host. We were interested in renovation projects and our host brought us to one house that was being rebuilt. We really had a very nice stay in Fes.

“fantastic attention to details”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Steve is the perfect owner with a great management team.
He always responded promptly to all queries. Was on hand to meet us and take us to apartment. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and in a good location in the Medina.
We had a great breakfast at his guest House and that looked very nice also but we prefer to self cater so the apartment suited us better.
Also took a day trip which Steve organized at a very reasonable price.
Totally recommend this rental.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

During my recent three week visit to Fes, i slept in eleven different riads and dars. I came to Dar Jameel from Dar Houdou, which is another house belonging to Steven. I liked Dar Houdou very much and expected a lot from Dar Jameel.

This is not a riad with a couryard, but actual house, renovated by Steven. It is very cozy, warm and clean place to stay at, with a nice sitting area, fast internet connection and three bathrooms. Just like at Dar Houdou, Steven had electric blankets in each room here, so the chilly Fes winter nights can be spent very pleasantly.

The location of the Dar is very good, being just off Talaa Saghira, easy to find. Thanks to its kitchen one can cook and prepare meals though Steven graciously invited me to take the breakfast at Dar Houdou every morning.

Excellent and unbeatable option for those who stay longer than a couple of nights!
