    Dangerous people, beware.

    Be very careful with this place. The owner works in conjunction with unofficial “guides” who take you to the medina and make hefty commissions on overpriced artisan items. The Riad itself, while aesthetically pleasing on first glance, is severely run down. It smells of mold, is full of huge roaches and has a lot of cosmetic damage and disrepair. Their website advertises a 60 euro massage and hamman as well as childcare. Upon my appointment I learned that there is no childcare and was charged 70 euro (mind you my children were in the room throughout treatment, not exactly the relaxing hour I had planned). The “massage therapist” is not trained and lacks understanding of human anatomy or basic massage technique. The icing on the cake happened after checkout. I prepaid for my 3 night stay over $319. I paid my overcharged 70 euro roach infested spa experience, I requested and paid my final bill after breakfast of over $75 (and conveniently their credit card machine was not working, welcome to Fes). I used her driver to depart. She had the driver pull over on the side of the road with 2 other men and hold my children and I hostage for 40 minutes until she arrived demanding money she claimed I owed her. They would not let us go until I paid her a lousy $30. Her driver then demanded our U.S. passports at which point things took a bigger turn for the worse. I have a case filed against all the people involved including the Riad owner who orchestrated the event. Dangerous people.

    Great design needs maintenance

    Incredible design but some areas need to be updated. Staff were very helpful. Stayed in December so it was quiet but it was very cold in the dining area inside. The staff tried to heat it with gas heaters and they helped us despite our late arrival. It was good and I would stay again but if they updated the bathrooms etc it could be incredible

    Terrible Experience

    We booked 3 rooms with a very high price tag and this was by far the worst hotel experience in Morocco, This is not even a 2 stars rather than 5 stars. Ac was broken, the toilets dirty and leaking, towels with rips, and to top it off the management is very aggressive and don't care to even listen. we are frequented travelers and we will NOT be able to recommend this place even to our enemies and tight how bad this is.

    Pros: NOTHING at all everything g about this place is a disaster.

    Cons: Fire all employees and close the entire facility until it is fully renovated

    5/5 Excellent

    So grateful to Mr George, his son Jaafar, Mrs Amina, Mrs. Fatima, Mr Saeed and the rest of the staff. They were amazing and so helpful in everyway. We could not have been more THANKFUL to have had our first experience arriving in Morocco, especially FEZ to be in this Riad and feel safe and comfortable. They were very accomediating in every way and collaborative. Highly recommend it.
