Fez is like a city you will ever have known.
The riad is stunning but lacked cleansiness, beaware there are cats living there that are not of the uk pet kind. The location of the property is perfect , and locals are friendly.
Neeza the housekeeper is an intresting person, obviously tourists are her bread and butter and her friends that have a shop or a taxi are offered to us first at very high prices.
A 45 minute journey with her friend and not affliated with the Riad cost us £18 yet the day before we went out by the main square drove with a chap for up to 4 hours and was charged £ 20.
She however cooked us a divine meal, even though is was somewhat overpriced. She hung out with us alot which was not really what we wanted as on many occasions we just wanted to chill. She would often tell us she would be back later , and we did not quite see the need.
The smell is quite over powering but this is due to the leather factories being opposite.
Our saving grace was our laptop, and the fast wifi.
There is a laptop but it seems to have all of Neeza's passwords.
Check out the roof terrace fantastic.
