Riad Fes 5 Excellent.Posted Feb 11, 2014
Pros: The brilliant position at the heart of the medina.
Cons: I really can't think of anything - perhaps better signage inside the hotel.
Location: Walk the narrow lanes - they say that, if you haven't got lost in Fes, you haven't been to Fes! Or hire a guide for 250 dirhams.
Superb position, right on the edge of the souks. The riad was built in 1900 and was the first to be converted to public use. The staff are friendly and helpful, the views from the roof terrace over the medina are spectacular, the rooms are exotic in the Moroccan way, everything is spotlessly clean and breakfasts are, in general, very good, although I would advise missing out on the two-minute boiled egg if I were you.

Perfect Ten!!Posted Jun 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
My mother and I stayed in Riad Fes for 4 nights. Fes was a long-time destination of choice by my Mom. Our experience was truly perfect. This Riad is not only amazing from architectural point of view, the room we stayed had a private balcony overlooking the courtyard and the Old City. The decor of the room made us feel like we are Arabian princesses. The staff ranging from the front desk to restaurant to housekeeping were extremely friendly, kind, polite and helpful. I would go back there any time. The hotel also recommended a local Japanese-speaking tour guide and he was unbelievable as well. I would recommend this hotel 100% to anyone who wants to stay in Fes. Thank you for the wonderful memory!!

Riad Fes: A palace of your own!Posted May 1, 2011 on Hotels.com
Riad Fes is truly like having a palace of your own. IT is an exquisite Relais&Chateaux property. With outdoor courtyards, gardens, pools and views of Fes from the upper decks, patios and rooms, this is one of the most elegant and stylish Riads you can imagine. The century old center building makes you feel like a Caliph and inspires a respite from the medina marketplace. The restaurant serves Moroccan cuisine of the highest order, with Fes-centric dishes along with other specialities. Best meal we had in Morocco. Buffet breakfast is similarly excellent, and event pork products are served. The service is warm, friendly and welcoming, with your requests handled promptly and professionally. The property is an easy walk or inexpensive cab ride to major attractions. The Hammam makes you yearn for one in your own home. I would and will return to Riad Fes for at least three nights. It is a perfect Moroccan Riad and a most ideal Fes experience. Environment, food, service are all of the highest quality.

Absolutely loved it!Posted Jul 21, 2010
This was a gorgeous hotel - the pictures online do not do it justice. We had a nice soaking tub with dried rosebuds, the Moroccan black soap, dried lavender, and other things. The room was a very nice size, complete with a little living room where they had tea and Moroccan pastries upon our arrival and a desk area. We had our own little balcony on the roof as well. The food they served was pricy (as are most of the upscale restaurants in Morocco) but delicious. Our taxi driver from the airport found the general area easily enough, but cars cannot go past the gate of the Medina and we had to rely on our map to get to the hotel. It was very close to one of the main gates and easy to find, but if you're not good with directions, ask the hotel to pick you up from the airport/train station. This was such a great find - we'd definitely come back here any day!

Absolutely gorgeousPosted Jun 4, 2008
This riad is an architectural gem situatated within the walls of the medina. The rooms were exquisite and quite luxurious. The hotel was extremely well maintained, rooms were immaculately cleaned twice daily, and the bathrooms appointed with all modern appliances. There were plenty of power outlets for computers, etc. The restaurant was very pleasant and adequate. The only drawback I could determine was the fact that they did not take credit cards and I was sent out to a cash machine to pay for my stay, and promptly got completely lost. For a hotel of this caliber they should accept credit cards. A minor problem was the height of the bathtub - it was difficult to get into without feeling you were high jumping. I would definitely stay there again. Fes should be the destination in Morocco.

More a boutique hotel than a riadPosted Nov 17, 2007
This hotel was quite trendy and smart and did not feel much like a riad. The service was sometimes overdone (taking literally hours to finish cleaning our room) or sometimes very slow (when bringing food or drink). The pop music in the bar was so loud between 6 - 10 pm, you could hardly hear the person next to you. The food in the restaurant was generally served cold.

fantastic accommodation in heart of cityPosted Jun 1, 2007
It would be impossible to find fault with this beautiful Riad. The building itself is impressive and exudes calm and tranquility despite being fairly large in Riad terms. The room was beautiful and well maintained with maid service twice daily. The restaurant served excellent food in beautiful surrounds and in fact we had our best Moroccan meals in this restaurant which was also reasonably priced. The all inclusive breakfast was also of high quality. All of the staff within this hotel were warm and welcoming and English was spoken to a high standard. We would most definately stay in this Riad again if we return to Fes.
