The twin with the good location in the medina

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: Location, design, comfort of rooms, restaurant, service
Cons: Despite what was claimed, the pool and fitness centres are not on site
Location: The riad is located in the old medina of Fes. A UNESCO World Heritage Site.
La Madison Bleue is a lovely place to stay in Fes--both of them. Confused? We were too when we arrived. There is a Maison Bleue Hotel and Maison Bleue Riad. They are affiliated but in different locations. It was an issue when we arrived because we were initially taken to the wrong site by our taxi. Once that was sorted, the bigger issue was learning the riad does not have a fitness room or pool, as promised on the website. The hotel has both and guests of the riad have access. The only challenge is getting from the riad to the hotel through the tangled alleys of the medina where 500 metres can get you lost for two hours. After the initial frustration, we settled in to the room. The building is beautiful, traditional Moroccan design. The rooms are large and there are tubs for soaking. The service is good and location relatively easy to access because it is near a landmark if the medina, the blue gate. The riad seems to be well known for its restaurant. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner including a chicken tajine, couscous royals and an orange cream dessert that was too large for two people but we finished every rich bit of it. Dinner service was excellent and the live musicians played beautifully. The hotel may have more amenities on site but the riad has a better location. With those factors in mind, make a choice between two good options. PS There are many stairs in narrow cases. If mobility is an issue, this may not be a good choice at all.

Great hotel just outside the Medina

Posted Feb 24, 2017
Pros: Bit of a hike up to the room but well worth the effort. Luxurious.bas
Cons: Based on our one night experience, great breakfast, nothing.
Location: The Medina. What else do you need ?
Late flight into Fes, but we were met by a shuttle. Given the late hour (12:30am), new city, big unknown, concierge waiting up for us, this was very welcome.

The hotel service was excellent the property is beautifully restored but the amenities in the room might need some upgrades to match other 5 stars hotels. The room is a little too dark compared to their second property outside of Medina which feels brighter and more modern.

Great place, traditional Riad with modern comforts

Posted Jun 21, 2015
Location: Just on the edge of the old Media. If you're not the type that wants to eat at McDonalds and stay at a Marriott, this is the perfect place.
It's on the small side which I like, a comfy boutique feel. Definitely old school interiors, all original as far as I can tell, dating from at least the turn of the century. A beautiful luxurious setting. However unlike many of the older Moroccan hotels, the bathroom, the air-conditioning and internet are all top notch. Probably my favorite of the 6-7 hotels I stayed during my tour in Morocco, some substantially more expensive than this one.

Hotel con encanto

Posted Jun 16, 2013
Pros: La decoración y la amabilidad
Cons: Fui con el bañador pensando en bañarme. La piscina del hotel no está pensada para el uso de los clientes......
Location: La medina es muy complicada para orientarse. El dia que me fui, me di cuenta que podia manejarme sin perderme para llegar al hotel.
Tiene muchas escaleras. No apto para personas con discapacidades, si embargo tiene ëncanto. El personal super educado, respetuso y con paciencia (que no siempre es así). El servicio de restaurante, es caro. El desayuno delicioso. Las habitaciones, todas diferentes, decoradas con mucho gusto.

噂通りのリヤド

Posted Oct 1, 2011
 伝統のモロカンスタイルで贅沢な時間を過ごすことが出来ます。 建物は築100年以上なのでそれなりな箇所もありますが、ハウス キーピングも行き届いていて私の基準ではすこぶる快適です。  リヤドのスタッフも丁寧で行き届いていましたが、1名商売っ気の ありすぎるスタッフがいたのはご愛敬か。  レストランもディナーで利用しましたがとてもおいしかったです。 他のレストランで食べるよりもちろん高いですが、コースにはワイン 等飲み物込の値段になっていて、仕上がり考えれば馬鹿高いわけ ではないかと思います。雰囲気を味わう価値はあるかと思います。 ただ、モロッコ音楽のライブ演奏があるのですが、少しうるさいと感 じる時がありました。  宿泊代含め周辺のリヤドと比較し価格は高いかもしれませんが、 それなりの時間を過ごせると思います。
