  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Beautiful decorated riad in the heart of the Médina. From the minute we arrived to al Fassia palace, the staff made us feel as comfortable as possible. We were there for a short time but they helped us make the most it by arranging a tour at a great price. We always felt safe as they had their staff member idriss walk us to our destinations or cab if it was late at night. They made us feel like family, and made our trip to fez that much more memorable

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    THE place to stay; absolutely wonderful experience

    We spent three incredible nights at Alfassia Palace on a two week holiday across Morocco and have no critiques to provide. We were welcomed by Esme, our gracious host, who was kind enough to see to our every need without hesitation. From a delightfully grand breakfast to arranging a knowledgeable guide to show us the ancient capital, the generosity and attentiveness of Esme and the staff at Alfassia Palace will not soon be forgotten. As for the house, we cannot stress just how beautifully it is decorated. The intense attention to detail is evident in every nook and cranny; the painstakingly hand-painted ceilings fit truly for a palace. The rooms are large with luxurious adornments such as a soft bed, a handcrafted headboard and wardrobe. Each room has its own washroom, complete with a full sized bathtub (though other suites have jacuzzis) - not something we often saw elsewhere in Morocco hotellery. The panoramic rooftop terrace views truly took our breath away, providing unobstructed views of major historical sites. Alfassia Palace is located near Bab Guissa in a less touristic neighborhood - a 10-20 min. walk to Bab Boujloud. Esme and the staff’s warm reception made our stay truly extraordinary. Our sincerest thanks to everyone at Alfassia Palace for making Fes the highlight of our trip! If you are seeking a genuinely exceptional experience in Fes, look no further than the beautiful Alfassia Palace! We cannot wait to return, inchallah! inchalla!

    Wspaniały, bogato zdobiony riad

    Wspaniały, okazały riad, który ma około 600 lat. Świetna baza wypadowa do zwiedzania Fezu. Obiekt dla osób lubiących i akceptujących klimat starej arabskiej medyny. Przepięknie odrestaurowane przestronne pokoje, bogato zdobione. Bardzo smaczne i urozmaicone śniadania. Przemiła obsługa. Właściciel uczynny, jest w stanie zorganizować przewodników oraz wycieczki. Zalecam jednak zachowanie ostrożności. Nasz przewodnik po medynie okazał się nieuczciwy i zażądał 3-krotnie wyższej opłaty, niż była ustalona z gospodarzem, do tego zabrał nas do najdroższych warsztatów w mieście, gdzie mały ręcznie tkany dywanik kosztuje 8200 dirhamów (ok. 4000 PLN), a sprzedawcy nie są skłonni do targowania się. Gospodarz poleca też lunche i kolacje w restauracji prowadzonej przez jego rodzinę, ale ona też jest droga jak na Maroko. Smaczna, ale bardzo prosta i lekka kolacja dla 2 osób i 1 dziecka kosztowała nas 380 dirhamów (180 zł). Ja polecam zwiedzać Fez na własną rękę i stołować się w miejscowych barach i restauracjach, które gotują dla europejskich turystów, są niedrogie i bezpieczne. Medyna w Fezie jest ogromna, ale bezpieczna, także wieczorem, znacznie spokojniejsza niż w Marakeszu, sprzedawcy nie zaczepiają, są grzeczni, pomocni i mają niewygórowane ceny.
