Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Amazing hotel. The owner its on site and very attentive of all guest trying to help us with everything. She made a spectacular new years eve party for us with live music we will never forget it. The sheets are better than in the four seasons. Every time you go out of the room they come in to clean or dry the shower. The nuts and dry fruits on the room are delicious. They gove you morrocan slippers its a super nice detail. Highly recommend it!

We had a lovely stay here during our time in Fes! The rooms are beautiful, and the location can’t be beat. The breakfast each morning was fabulous, and the service was impeccable. We also took their cooking class, which was exceptional. Our guide took us on a market tour in the morning, where we sampled food at several restaurant stalls and bought ingredients for the meal we were going to cook. The class itself was conducted in an outdoor kitchen on the roof, with a beautiful view of the Medina. And the food was delicious! I cannot recommend it enough.

We had a hammam and massage. It was fabulous! The staff took great care of us. We went as a foursome, and we received our services in pairs. After our treatments, we sat in the beautiful courtyard and had some delicious tea prepared by a very nice man who taught us how to make the tea along with some Arabic words. I would look into staying here in the future.

A beautiful oasis within the medina. We had a lovely room with an upstairs space that was perfect for our daughter. We only got to spend one night here and I only wish we could have stayed longer. The staff was top notch. We enjoyed drinks at the end of the day in the beautiful courtyard. My only complaint was with the amount of scent used in our room. It was not a bad smell but it was overwhelming.

What a unique and unexpected experience. We stayed here 2 nights as part of our tour. The staff are very helpful, the food is delicious. Breakfast is not buffet, they serve you. If you want eggs, just ask! My only recommendation would to be an explanation of what is going to happen, I like to just drink coffee first then eat, the food was just brought out so was cold by the time I ate it. If you stay here, our guide suggested we not leave the hotel or we would be lost. Loved the opportunity to stay here! Thank you!

Our small group had a very warm welcome by the management, and we were escorted to our respective rooms. They were all different and were very comfortable and quiet. Nice bathroom. Great rooftop area. This place is right in the Medina, so it's best to have help finding it and getting your bags there. Lovely restaurant with a great dinner and traditional Moroccan breakfast. Highly recommended.

Wonderful introduction to Morocco! This beautiful, intimate riad and staff are top-notch. Beds are comfortable, breakfast and dinner very tasty. The courtyard is serene. The medina location is convenient. Manager Karine Orfila greeted us and was available if needed during our 4-night stay. After two weeks in-country, our group of four decided it was very high on our list of favorites; if/when we return to Marrakech, we won't hesitate to book with Riad Idra again!

We spent three nights at this beautiful riad in the heart of the medina in Fes. From our initial welcome with traditional Moroccan mint tea served by the delightful Ba Mohammed, every member of staff was outstanding which really made our stay memorable. Special shout out to Younnes. The daily evening turn down service with chocolates was a nice touch. The roof top is a relaxing space for a cold beverage after the madness of the medina. The breakfast served is plentiful and is a traditional Moroccan one. If we had any criticism, it would be that a room on the ground floor, adjacent to the courtyard where breakfast is served, is, obviously, a bit noisy in the morning. This wasn’t an issue for us except for one morning when there was a particularly noisy group of guests. We had been told on check-in that we could change rooms if the noise was a problem. A fabulous riad which we would highly recommend and would definitely return to on any future visit back to Fes.
