Excellent quiet retreat in the center of crazy Fez
The room was spectacular! Like a little apartment! And it was nice to have a restaurant there where I could order different things because it was too confusing to find anything at night. The rooftop was also INCREDIBLE. I could have lounged up there all week!

Best riad in Fes!
Absolutely beautiful riad in the heart of the medina. Loved everything about this place - the lobby knocks your socks off. The rooms are stunning. The restaurant and pool area makes you never want to leave. And the rooftop is magical. Will definitely come back.

Great Unesco listed property. Unsafe neighbourhood
The hotel is perfect for anyone who wants to experience staying in a beautiful old Fes riad. The location from the nearest parking is at least 15mins walk via the labyrinth of alleyways. It is not the easiest walking journey without some helps finding it. We got conned by the porter who claimed to be from the hotel and wanted 50dh from us upon arriving at the front door. To get in and out of the riad is also a bit scary as the teenagers loitering on the streets just wanted to misguide us and make money from us. Perhaps this kind of experience applies to the whole medina of Fes. The experience going back to the hotel at night is unpleasant as we certainly do not feel safe even I was with my husband. NOT suitable for female travellers. Sadly the neighbourhood is rather not friendly (compare to Marrakech medina which is very safe). The hotel has a beautiful and big terrace which is superb for sunset. The staff are friendly and chatty. I think the hotel service could definitely improved by providing advance guidance for guests who are new to the medina of Fes, to guarantee a safe arrival, to enhance the overall experience before even stepping in to the riad. The staff could give better advice to hotel guest on how to deal with the hassle from the kids on the streets and make guests understand it is fine to walk back after certain time at night, or how to seek help if something do happen to them on the street 10meters from the front door.

A beautiful riad, we enjoyed our stay. very lovely staff, really helpful. We did find the area a bit removed but located near to a lovely restaurant (Ruined Garden). All in all a good stay.

Beautiful riad in the heart of the medina
The riad is simply beautiful. The central courtyard which greets all guests when they are checking in is so grand. It’s difficult to find the riad at first so you should probably contact the riad to arrange for a porter to pick you up. The room is big and has most amenities. Perhaps the only thing missing is a tv, but that’s good because you can fully enjoy Fez without that distraction.

Breathtaking Riad!
The riad was spectacular.The architecture is amazing and the riad was spotless and very well cared for. The pool area was romantic and welcoming and the riad boasted a restaurant eating area and a beautiul roof top patio. Breakfast was plentiful and staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Lastly we had a gorgeous room with high soaring celilings and a historical door. We would highly recommend!
