Riad Le Calife, Fes
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.

An excellent choice
The riad is truly stunning. Beautifully decorated and maintained. We used the riad's kitchen for each breakfast and one dinner and it was excellent. The riad arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, made reservations for dinner and arranged a half day tour of the medina. Couldn't have been happier with the experience.

Modern hotel experience in a traditional Riad
There is a reason Riad Le Calife is rated no.1. First, from the look, it is a traditional riad. But when you start to look at the details, it is a modern hotel, from the comfort bed, sheets clean and high quality, towels, clean and soft, to the shower room (water pressure is high, and get you a hot shower), air conditioner is quiet. The owner Alex is very helpful, and all the staff are very friendly. Breakfast is great, and the view from the rooftop is amazing. In short words, it is a modern hotel experience (VIP treatment) in a traditional riad. You don't get to see many of these type Riad in Morocco. If you visit Fes, you should stay at this Riad.

Charming riad - excellent location!
What a charming riad - and in the heart of the medina! Yasmine and Alex did a terrific job in making us feel welcome. Fatima, the cook, did a terrific job in teaching us a few Moroccan dishes. Overall a wonderful stay!

Great rooms, great food, great view!
Very beautiful room. Wifi and heat/AC is good. The restaurant in the Riad has great food and an amazing view of the city, probably one of the best views you can get. It is easy to get to considering it is right next to the medina and you can't drive most places in the medina. Walkable to all the sites and the staff is super helpful and friendly.
