I was so excited to get to Fes just to stay in this riad, which from photos looked breathtaking. However, the riad seems to be in disrepair, or at least has seen better days. I went with a group of university students and while some of us got gorgeous, ornate rooms, others got awful, tiny, bare rooms. The woman who...

This place was perhaps the highlight of my visit to Fes, from the beautiful decor, stunning views, delicious food and white glove service. A tru gem in the Medina, family own, taking Moroccan hospitality to the next level.

Riad arabesque has so much promise that it fails to live up to. My first warning that I ignored were the cheesy circa 1970/1980s "celebrity" photos when entering the hotel. These were probably the best days for this hotel. Now I know people like this place on TripAdvisor. And the views and the location are amazing. Everything else stunk. Service...

The riad is on top of a hill with a wonderful view of the old fes city. Beautifully maintained with carvings, pool and a little fountain. Wonderful to walk into the cool interiors after a hectic day outside. The staff are very helpful and pleasant and as we were vegetarians went out of their way to provide us with suitable...

We booked a triple room it was a duplex. Nice decorative rooms with a very moroccan feel. Large rooms. They had a nice sitting area outside that overlooked the city. Also a backdoor that walks into the medina directly.

Amazing Riad that takes you back on time to a real Andalousi palace! Very nice staff moroccan food (i am moroccan i can tell), and friendly owners who can give you tips about the city, or help you find a nice guide. I would totally recommend the place for anybody who wants to discover the real fez.

Clearly a house previously belonging to a wealthy family this riad is full of decorative detail equal to the best in Fes, and is lovingly maintained in traditional style, with traditional service and hospitality to match. On a hill overlooking old Fes, you can relax on the terrace at the front with stunning views of the the old Medina and...

I stayed at this riad in November of 2009 and will never forget the experience. The room I had was the most beautiful room I had ever stayed at in my life. Like some kind of Arabian nights dream. The room I had in the old palace section at the Palais Jamais Hotel two years earlier was incredible too but...
