BeautifulPosted May 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Dar El Ghalia is a beautiful and charming riad very close to the walls of the Medina. While you must walk quite a distance - uphill - from the taxi drop-off, there are signs that point you in the right direction. The building itself is extremely plain and drab from the outside, but once the door is open you enter into a beautiful example of moroccan style and comfort. The staff is very accommodating and helped my daughter getting some legal documents sent back to the United States before we were even checked in. Each room is individualized and the junior suite we had was very comfortable. The only draw-back was the extremely small bathroom. There was barely enough legroom for comfort on the toilet but one adjusted as necessary! I highly recommend this riad for anyone who wants a taste of the architecture and style of Morocco.

Great hotel in quiet area of MedinaPosted Mar 3, 2013
This was a nice little gem in a quiet area of the Media with very gracious and helpful hosts. The hotel was small (8 rooms) with a amazing public lobby where you can relax and have a drink. The rooms all open up to the main courtyard and were comfortable with plenty of room. The hosts were very lovely, and the there was always someone on staff that spoke very good english. There was a nice roof top terrace where you could enjoy a drink (alcohol was available) and a nice Hamman (Spa) on site (unfortunately, it was down when we were there, but looked lovely). The wifi worked great in lobby. Tips: Call before you arrive as you have to walk about a 1/2 mile to get to the hotel (no cars in the Medina). The hotel will arrange a taxi for you from the Train/Airport and have someone waiting for you at the main gate of the Medina to assist you with bags and walk you to the hotel. They are also happy to arrange other tours/services for you and the restaurant on site was very very good.

Authentic decorPosted Jul 31, 2012 on Hotels.com
Great Riad, excellent service, food and superb views over old town from top terrace. Difficult to find without a local guide first time, but oK after that

Reasonable, but peripherally locatedPosted Apr 28, 2012
Pros: Good place to meet some other travelers.
Cons: The rooms are dark
Location: The location is okay, but not great. Hard to find and you need to walk about 100 meters slightly uphill to get there.
Not too difficult to find. The old city is confusing, but I was dropped off at the correct place and then had to walk about 100 meters to the riad door. I had someone directing me, so it wasn't bad, but if you are by yourself, you may never find the place. It's not centrally located, so there isn't anything nearby. The riad itself is nice. The interior is very authentic, and the roof garden is a nice place to have breakfast. It was nice enough, but it's more like 3 - 4 stars, certainly not five. The staff, though, is extremely helpful and attentive, and they have wi-fi on the first floor.

A wonderful hotel in the middle of the dirtyPosted Dec 24, 2011 on Hotels.com
Me and my girlfriend had wonderful time in Riad Al Ghalia. The hotel is magnificent, with a very nice staff. The bedroom is a jewel, we felt like princes in that huge bed. The only problem is the localization, in a very strange and dirty neighborhood. If you go to Fes, ALWAYS pick a guide at the train station, to help you to get trough the dark streets. Will make you feel safer. But imagine, if I say that about the neighborhood and still liked the hotel, it's because it's really good!
