We were wholly delighted with Dar Seffarine, a gorgeous riad in the heart of the Medina in Fes. The restoration of the old mansion is museum-level quality (it's in better condition than many historic houses that charge admission!). The staff, fluent in English, is solicitous....More
Dar Seffarine is a beautiful guest house (a restored 600 yr. old mansion) right in the medina, down narrow, covered streets. It has about seven guest rooms, some of them suites, beautifully decorated Moroccan style (colorful tiles, intricately painted wood), and reasonably priced. There are...More
The Seffarine is a remarkably beautiful house, perfectly located in the heart of things near the Place Seffarine, yet just a 5 minute walk from the Bab R'cif. Although the owners were on vacation during our stay, we received extraordinarily friendly and attentive care from...More
This is a beautiful place to spend a few days - and a lovely shelter from the craziness of Fes, right in the heart of town. It's not cheap, but the building has been wonderfully restored and would be capable of charging admission just to...More

I completely understand wanting to have some choices for dinner. We walked throughout the medina and I think there are certainly restaurants nearby, or not too far of a walk from Dar Seffarine. In terms of safety, although the streets in the Medina may seem a little dark at night, we did not feel unsafe once we were familiar with the area. The first night we arrived in Morocco and we walked through the the Medina to get to the riad I was a little uncomfortable, but after seeing everything in the light of day and walking around a bit I felt totally safe the following evening.
If you decide to stay at Dar Seffarine, have them arrange transport from the airport for you, it was so easy and inexpensive. finding your way around the Medina can be quite overwhelming.
The staff there will definitely provide you with directions and remember when you are walking through the Medina, be careful who you take directions from. Many boys and men will tell you that a street is closed so that they can guide you and they would want payment.
It was such a great place to stay I would definitely stay there again, even if it meant walking a little bit further for dinner. Looking at the map, it looks quite far from restaurants, but I don't think it would be longer than 10 minutes or so to most of them.
Hope this helps.
