Dar Hafsa is a very nice place to stay at in Fez. It is close to the center of the Medina, but very quiet when you desire some rest. Karim, Souffiane and Mohammed are fantastic hosts and gave us a warm welcome and great support and advice throughout our trip. Whenever we needed some help or the route to a...

We spent 2 nights in this riaad, and i would definitely return. We arrived almost at midnight by train, the hotel gave clear instructions of where to go. We were met at the blue gate by Soufiyen who walked us the short walk to the hotel as cars cannot fit on the small streets. The rooms were a good size...

The guesthouse is clean and well located, right off one of the main roads in the Medina. The breakfast is quite nice and the staff are helpful. Do not take the recommended tour. It's way overpriced and just visits shop after shop, followed by an expensive lunch (which I opted out of). I ended the tour about 2 hours early.

This is a beautiful hotel with really nice staff. They treated us like if we were family and took real care of us which is something you really appreciate specially in a busy city like fez. I would really recommend this accommodation.

Staying in Dar Hafsa was an absolute pleasure. The house is beautiful- lovely traditional tiling and painted wood, with lovely views. The breakfast is out of this world, with an incredible variety of items. We never managed to eat all the types of bread/pastry in one morning, but I recommend you try different things each time, as they are all...

We stayed two nights at Dar Hafsa and had a wonderful time. When we arrived in the evening we were met with smiles and mint tea. The staff was extremely helpful and we had a great time conversing with them during breakfast which was a wonderful feast of breads and spreads with orange juice and coffee or mint tea. Our...

From the moment we stepped into this Riad to the moment we stepped out, we were accommodated for to the furthest extent! Comparatively to Marrakech, the Medina here in Fes is much larger, with many MANY more streets. It's pretty daunting, and it would have been easy to get overwhelmed and not explore the city as much as we did...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dar Hafsa. The owner was welcoming and extremely helpful in recommending restaurants and a tour guide for the day. The breakfast was superb, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. This is a great choice for your Fes stay.

The best part of this place is the people, Abdul and his family/staff. They will meet you at the blue gate and walk you in for starters and I strongly suggest you do this. They will help you in any and every respect. Beyond that the place is authentic and charming (also clean) and the breakfast substantial.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Hafsa is a traditional 19th century Morocccan home. Recently renovated, the house is a beautiful example of fine Moroccan craftsmanship. The ornate tile work and painted doors reflect the best in cultural design. An open floor plan with multiple indoor balconies gives the house a cozy feeling, but not at the expense of privacy. A roof-top terrace offers an expansive view of the Fes Medina and the Riff Mountains.This lovely accommodation is seven minutes from the Blue Gate (Bab Bouljoud), and a simple right-hand turn from the main street (derb sidi safi souiket ben safi talaa sghira) and souk. It is situated on a quiet, clean byway. Those looking for a more authentic Fes stay will find themselves a reasonable distance from hustle and bustle of the shopping and trade.You will feel welcome at Dar Hafsa by the family who manages the guest house, Mariam and Aziz and their parents. They are friendly and generous. English, French, and Arabic languages are spoken well, along with some Spanish and German. Your comfort and satisfaction is assured, and the family can share their local knowledge to enrich your stay. ... more   less
