the perfect oasis in Fes
What a little gem in the middle of Fes! It's my first time traveling to North Africa and to a Muslim predominant country, it was definitely an eye opening experience. location - right in the heart of media and easily accessible by taxi from taxi aiport. The riad arranged airport transport at a very reasonable price, and the staff was waiting for us to help with the luggage when we arrive. room - the room is very spacious and well appointed. It was better than the pictures on line, beautifully decorated with all the intricate Moroccan details. The bathroom is large, with separate shower and toilet, and a large bathtub. Super clean and comfortable, and well stock with all the amenities (slippers, bathrobe) that one need during vacation. The riad itself is beautiful and tastefully decorated with all the antiquities the owner collected over the years. Service - the service is impeccable. The riad owners Yasmin and Alex take such excellent care of the guests and make sure you have the best time in Fes. They help you with the itinerary and restaurant recommendations, walk through the map, and paid great attention to every detail of the stay. There are only 7 rooms in the riad, so you really feel that the service is very personal. From the welcome mint tea on arrival, to the cookies in the room baked by the riad's chef, I felt very pampered by all the staff. Value - great value, breakfast included, and much more comfortable than hotels.

Riad Le Calife was outstanding. Yasmine and Alex could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We loved our time in Fez, due to the energy of the city and the warmth of our hosts. Riad Le Calife is an outstanding place to stay!

From the minute we checked in, Andalla Riad and Spa welcomed us with open arms. This Riad is absolutely beautiful, well taken care of and immaculate. The rooms are done so tastefully in a Moroccan motif and the air conditioner kept our room very comfortable, even when the temps were in the high 90’s outside. Their staff couldn’t have done more, even if we asked. They were so helpful and kind, and always had time to help with anything we needed. They gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants and places to visit and shop. Breakfast on the rooftop patio was a treat every morning, and their dinners served in the evening on the rooftop are not to be missed. A special thank you to Christophe, Andre, Youniss, Abdul, Ahmet, Aziz, Abdullah and the rest of the staff. You made our stay in Marrakech so memorable and an unforgettable experience!

Such an incredible experience, you feel so welcome and comfortable from the moment you arrive. There's absolutely no reason to stay anywhere but here when you're in Fes.

Best Riad
Great Riad!! Alex and Yasmin clearly love fez and running their Riad!!! They make you feel so welcome. The place is beautifully decorated and very spacious with all modern amenities

If you are trapped in Fez might as well be here
(Disclaimer - anyone using Maps app be warned Riad shows up in two locations which are right next to each other so you run the risk of making infinite circles looking for it. Best to call Yasmine and wait for someone to come get you) The Riad really is lovely. Yasmine is very polite & helpful; the cookies on arrival are what pastry dreams are made of and I would not even know where to begin to rave about the service. We had quite an unpleasant stay in Fez (sadly ... through NO fault of this Riad) but Yasmine was very thoughtful to follow up via email to make sure we got to the next destination along our route safely and were back to loving Morocco and having the time of our lives. Our luggage was not just brought to our room - it was organized and carefully put away - the bag of cherries we picked up on the drive along the highway were waiting for us washed in a beautiful bowl on a table by the time we made it to the room - hats and scarves hanging in the closet ... every time we left the room we came back to it perfectly arranged back to an almost OCD level of neatness - something of which I could sing praises for days. The rooftop is stunning. The restaurant was most charming. Though not without it's faults - I could not get past the odd smell in the bathroom which I quickly figured out was mold growing in the shower. Being sensitive to smells it was quite bothersome for me personally. My advice - stay away from the blue room but definitely stay @ Riad Le Calife.

Classy, Caring Riad in the Heart of the Medina
Our stay at the Riad Le Calife was a lovely, special experience. Alexandre and Yasmine are wonderful hosts. They have really put their hearts into this place and it shows. It is beautifully decorated throughout, making a peaceful retreat from the craziness of the medina. They are also very good ambassadors and have a lot of knowledge and pride for their city and had endless recommendations for walks, sightseeing, eating, shopping. The entire staff was endlessly helpful and courteous. We had wanted to experience different restaurants in the 3 nights we were in Fes, and Alex had many great recommendations, but we had a hard time going outside of the Riad since meals at the Riad were so excellent. Kudos to everyone, especially Mohamed and Fatima. The room itself (we stayed in the Emerald Room) was fantastic. Large and comfortable. Lots of other places to hang out around the Riad as well, including terrace, bar, courtyard. The Riad is a little hard to find, so be sure to contact Alex prior to arrival and they will make sure everything is taken care of. In summary, I'm sure there are many nice Riad's to stay at in Fes, but it's hard to believe that you'll find one as peaceful and comfortable as Le Calife. My advice is to stay here and I promise you will feel lucky, as we do, that you have had such a wonderful experience during your travels.

The best of the best
The Riad Le Calife is not a five star hotel but rather, if possible, I would classify it as a six star accommodation. From the very start of your arrival, the riad, provides customer service which is beyond expectations. The difference between checking into our riad in Marrakech and Le Calife were like day and night. First, our driver contacted the riad as we approached Fes. When we arrived, the riad sent someone to meet us outside the medina wall to help us with our luggage and direct us to the riad. Upon entering the riad, you are immediately met with a level of detail that surpasses anything I have ever experienced. The riad is decorated with well appointed antiques arranged meticulously. The court yard is spotless with a beautiful fountain surrounded by shady trees and multiple tables and chairs for the riad’s clients. The rooms, like the common areas are well decorated. A fresh fruit basket ( apple, orange and bananas ) as well as bottled water are provided daily. The bathroom is well equipped with hair dryer, toiletries, big fluffy towels, Q-tips, makeup-mirror,etc. There is a flat panel TV attached to the wall to allow for background music or a quick update on news. A mini bar and refrigerator are available. The bed is very comfortable ( which was such a treat having come from the desert ). Beautiful stained glass windows open up into the courtyard. The attention to detail is what makes this a riad beyond 5 stars.
