Riad was beautiful. Breakfast is ok and the room was small but decently comfortable. Location is at the edge of Fes medina, could be hard to find or easy to get lost near there.

Good location, comfortable beds
This is a nice, newly renovated raid near the wall of the medina, and not far from one of the gates, so it’s relatively easy to find. The room was pretty clean, and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast is good. We also ordered dinner there one night, and it was great. The biggest downside is the staircase, which is very steep and narrow. Also, the shower had mildew.

We loved staying at the Riad Scalia! The property was beautiful and easy to find, away from the hustle and bustle of the medina but an easy walk away. We had a lovely terrace in our room overlooking the countryside. Our hosts were extremely kind and friendly.

Wonderful stay on the edge of the Medina
Riad Scalia is charming and comfortable home away from home located on the edge of the Fez Medina. Our room and the common areas were clean and beautifully decorated. In addition, the shower was water was hot and the WIFI worked well. Our hosts, Mohammed and Nezah, were two of the nicest people I have ever met in a place where I stayed as a guest. Nezha went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful, and she is warm and genuine individual. After a long day of walking all over the Medina, she invited to the rooftop terrace for a cup of fresh tea. And what an amazing view! The home-made breakfast every morning was delicious, and Nezah showed us how she cooked the chicken and vegetable couscous that we had for dinner. Staying at Riad Scalia made our short time in Fes very enjoyable, and we were genuinely glad that we had selected to stay there.
