The place itself is ok

Posted Sep 24, 2015
The place advertised as 4* on the expedia site and I wouldn't give 3* It's location is a good walk from any transport No parking Took a while to get key to a room The place needs a lot of preservation the rooms are fine towels are too old The taps in the shower were not working well the roof terrace view is splendid, but the furniture is tatty and not very clean Service extremely poor we ordered food and got two plates a basket of bread and a glass of a drink we ordered the waiter brought the plates and quickly disappeared, there is no way to communicate with staff if you are in the terrace, And when we got the bill it was 400 dirham for a 4" plate of pastilla and a tagine and orange juice!!!! We felt totally ripped off. A plate of tagine big enough for two people is 60 to 75 dirham in the same city in a decent cafe/ restaurant. Shame on expedia for passing this as 4*

Bien dans le style traditionnel.

Saison creuse donc Riad vide. Tres beau dans le style traditionnel. Grande chambre, a l'ancienne. Un peu étonné a l'arrivée (lumières éteintes, ambiance sombre...) Service discret, un peu timide parfois.

Ni chicha ni limonaaa!

Estancia breve pero en general fue agradable. El personal muy amable y el patio central muy bonito. La habitación, a pesar de ser una suite tenía un acceso por una escalera muy estrecha y empinada, con una sola ventana pequeña....vaya, no apta para claustrofóbicos. En cuanto a la ubicación el riad está al otro extremo de la zona más comercial y turística. Si lo que buscas es una perspectiva diferente de la Medina de Fez es una buena opción. Nota de 6,5

dar majestueux très accueillant superbe terrasse

Posted Jan 2, 2015
Pros: presque tout
Cons: la literie un peu dur les lits un peu petits; la cuisine un peu decevante
Location: media peuplée de jeunes qui arnaquent les touristes en jouant les guides, je souhaiterais une meilleur signalisation de la medina pour les éviter
dar très bien situé proche dans la vielle médina proche commerce, dar avec équipe très sympathique et très serviable, cadre majestueux,

Not bad

Posted Aug 25, 2014 on Hotels
What you will find is that Fes is a huge hill. Dar El Ghalia is on a lonely street at the bottom of this hill so you are always climbing to get anywhere. Good news- it's all downhill on the way back. Keep in ming that "Riads" are intimate hotels with an interior courtyard. A "Dar" is more similar to a mansion turned hotel. And a hotel is, well, a hotel. I prefer Riads but this is a fine Dar and, for the price, you can't beat it. You'll never find it if driving, someone took mercy on us and led us to about three blocks from the Dar so we could park and walk to the place. Not an easy walk with luggage. The owner was very nice. Make sure the women bring a cover-up.

Mooie oude riad in de medina

Posted Jun 24, 2014
According to the owner this used to be the house of a prominent family of Fes. This is not very apparent from the outside, as the building does not distinguish itself from neighboring buildings, but once you enter it, a complete new world emerges. The inner court is really impressive, architecturally speaking, and is also tastefully decorated. It has a 1920s vibe. My room was a standard room and it was fairly basic, but ok. I would have expected the bathroom to be a bit more up to standards. The riad is located in the middle of the medina, so you can't reach it by cab and have to walk through narrow alleys to actually reach it. This obviously adds to the experience, but has the disadvantage that you better be back in your riad before sunset. At least, that was recommended by the hotel staff, probably because of security concerns.

Hotel accueillant. Le personnel courtois discret

Posted Feb 10, 2014
Pros: Charme, calme, luxueux, dans mon entendement, mais pas insultant, reposant.
Cons: RAS
Location: La Médina, son marché, ses nombreuses mosquées. Tout est à voir et à revoir.
Calme, propre, charmant. Personnel dévoué et discret dans un cadre digne des contes des mille et une nuit !!!! Pour ceux qui cherchent l'exotisme, c'est le lieu idéal. Son charme contraste avec le cadre de la Médina mais c'est ce qui plaît ! Idéal pour s'évader ! Je recommande vivement à ceux qui cherchent l'exotisme. La Médina est classée au patrimoine mondial mais l'hôtel à lui seul est un joyau du patrimoine !
