    Fabulous 8.8 From 28 reviews

    Very Good 8.0
    Off season leaves poor impression
    A spectacularly beautiful setting--almost like a movie set ( of 2 centuries wealthy decor). The large dining room was the centerpiece: We were excited when we walked in. Off season the staff were not particularly interested enough in us to bother much- except to collect money. The breakfast was not palatable. So we didn't bother the next day. The server for dinner did not have a clue about serving utensils or other needs! (Probably his & the cook's first night?) Our room was very dark making reading difficult. While 2 antique lamps stood ready, there were no outlets to reach them! The bed was comfortable. The bolster and pillows challenged comfort. The bathroom was very good as was our room's decor. The winding thru the medina eventuality made us feel successful at finding our way back. Note: look way up to see signs for it! In a summary: We suspect El Ghalia is a wonderful setting in which to stay. We just can't say this for February.

    Very friendly and welcoming
    The staff were so friendly and very welcoming. The Riad is comfortable and in the heart of the medina.

    Amazing location
    Fes is an amazing ancient living city unlike I have ever been to before. It is not overly touristic although not what it once surely was. El Ghalia was well located and staffed by very nice people.

    Very beautiful place
    Very beautiful place. The place itself can be a tourist attraction. Very helpful and friendly staff. Delicious food. However, half the time, there was no hot water. The location is also not that good as it is difficult to find it amidst the labyrinth that is the old city. The bedroom was upstairs which was slightly inconvenient.
