Disappointing staff made this the WORST experience

WARNING: DO NOT STAY HERE My family of 4 booked two nights at this riad, opting to book the suite with the two floors with one large bed and two single beds upstairs. However, when we arrived they showed us to a room with 3 small beds side by side approximately half the size of the room that we thought we were getting. I was obviously livid and explained that I paid for a much better room. At this point, the staff member named Muhammed asked if we would do him a "favor" by staying in this room instead. I declined and demanded the room that I had paid for. Muhammed got VERY aggressive, and said he was "thinking a lot of things about me," as he came very close to me; face-to-face! I thought he wanted to fight me! I was then asked to go to the "beautful" rooftop for tea, which turned out to be dirty and full of dead plants. My family was made to wait 45 minutes on the cold rooftop waiting for tea and a staff member to come tell us everything was sorted out. We eventually got the room we paid for, however, it smelled like cleaning product, they only gave us 3 towels instead of 4, and did not provide us the remote to heat our freezing cold room. Sure enough, at 8am the next morning, there was no staff on sight, the laundry was not ready, and we had to haul our luggage down the steep steps ourselves. Finally, Muhammed showed up looking like he just woke up. He demanded we pay a tax, but would not provide any paperwork to show what we were being asked to pay!

Pros: Only the location.

Cons: Service, staff, ambiance, warmth, upkeep.

Location: Located near the blue gate, there are a variety of restaurants and small shops in the area.

Comfortable stay in sister Rocco and private tour

We spent 3 nights in the newly and beautifully restored small sister of Riad Rocco - quiet but close to the main street, a great place to be based. Very comfortable beds and constant hot water. Staff are incredibly helpful. Breakfast is generous. We took a 3 nights/ 4 days private tour from Fez to Merzouga, to Todra Gorge, to Ouarzazete, to Marrakech. The driver, Hassan and Mohamed, staff member, gave us a great trip. They were always kind and friendly and committed to giving us a wonderful time, showing us the sights and introducing us to excellent local cuisine. We recommend that Mustapha, the manager with whom we booked the trip is consistent in explaining what is included, i.e. which meals.

Horrible and Unwelcoming

We had a reservation for 3 nights and it was so bad we only stayed 1 night. The staff told our driver that they would meet us in the square with a luggage cart and escort us to the riad. If you've been to Morocco, you know this is a necessity, especially in a medina the size of Fez. They said they would be there in 2 minutes, 25 minutes later they had not arrived and would not answer the phone. We hired a local in the square to take us to the riad and we paid for it. The staff at the Rocco then argued when we arrived and said they did send someone. We were the ONLY white van and this was a lie. The inside of the riad was dark and unwelcoming. The staff was not friendly. We were not provided any information or even a map of the medina. I needed to go bathroom and the public bathroom off the lobby is a squatty potty in the floor. They walked us upstairs to the room (2 flights of steep steps) and did not offer to help with a single bag, even though the entirety of the staff are kids in their early 20s. They offered coffee and tea and we said yes, but they never made it. The room was clean, but when we took 1 shower the floor immediately flooded and rolled into the bedroom. My bed was in a puddle. The "beautiful rooftop" is a few tables, dead plants, broken down wicker chairs, and views of glass spiked roofs. When I went to breakfast earlier than my roommates the staff walked past me 20+ times without even offering coffee. Save yourself the trouble. Just awful.

Pros: The room was clean. That is the best thing I can say. I am baffled by the positive review here.

Cons: Everything, especially the unfriendly and unhelpful staff.

Medina location, helpful staff

The staff helped with a guided tour and transfers, also very kind getting a snack for our hungry selves on arrival. A nice Riad with terrace but not for those who struggle with stairs!

Pros: Staff, location and character

Cons: The stairs are quite steep and difficult with luggage but something that just is. Our room was awkward but the staff are helpful I'm sure they'd help.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Unfortunately this is a misleading hotel who's staff lie to get you to stay here. I paid for a suit with 2 double beds. The confirmation email stated I would get 2 double beds but we got only 1 double bed and a very small single bed. This hotel also advertised being a spa this is not true either and the nearest would be a local Hamam used by The locals which is down the road and in the busy restaurant district!? I complained that the room was not what I was promised. The manager said he would meet us in the morning and give us a refund or spa treatment. We waited but he did not show and the receptionist had a smug look on her face and charged us for the airport transfer. The room had no cupboard to hand your clothes and only had a broken wooden rail with a few hangers! Totally rubbish experience. Far better Riad in Fes at cheaper prices.
