Stay here! Not only was the riad beautiful, private, elegant, and located in a great spot.... the staff who run it go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed and looked after. Staying here was one of the highlights of our trip, and we traveled a lot through Morocco. It's a perfect place to unwind at the end of full walking days. Oh, and try the cooking class with Fatima. She's great and her food is wonderful! Thank you to Yasmine and Alex for everything! xo :)

My husband and I stayed at this Riad in the Diamond Suite in early November of 2013. It was as beautiful as the pictures show and our room was enormous and luxurious. We were very impressed with all the staff who were, without exception, warm, helpful and very accommodating. The owners who were, unfortunately, tied up with a family emergency still made the effort to come by and greet us and welcome us to their small hotel. The breakfasts were plentiful and served with a smile. I was fortunate to spend several hours in the kitchen with Fatima learning how to make couscous and several other dishes which were served up for dinner that evening. She was a lovely girl who it was a pleasure to get to know. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming riad!

This Riad is not only stunning looking but is full of lovely people working here, which is all very helpful, smiling and you just sense from the moment that you walk into the Riad, what this is a very special place. I had the opportunity to cook with Fatmina in the kitchen, and if you have time, do so, not only is it fun to make the food but it is also very tasty too.

I will come back and I cannt recommend Riad Le Calife enough.

I chose this Riad after reading all the wonderful reviews on tripadvisor.
There is a reason why Riad le Calife is number one and that is because everything is flawless.

The location - is very good, very close to the main road in the medina, close to a parking place (if you arrive by car) and very easy to remember how to get there (unlike in Europe or USA, it is better not to be in the center of the medina). If you want to go out after it gets dark, they will ask someone to accompany you to the main road which is roughly 2 minutes walking distance.

The riad - is fairy tale like, every little detail is perfect, a beautiful indoor garden, a breathtaking view on the 2 terraces above, 2 rooms to unwind and have a drink and nice music playing in the background.

The rooms - i stayed in 3 different riads in morocco and what i particularly appreciate here is the fact that all rooms are on top floor (there is no room on the main floor). The biggest advantage is that the noise coming from the courtyard is attenuated and there is much more privacy. We stayed in Opaline room, which is very tastefully decorated and very cosy (enough room for 2 big suitcases).

The staff - all staff are trained very well to help with absolutely anything. However the highlight are the owners - Alex and Yasmine - who are very involved in all aspects concerning the well being of each guest, have wonderful recommendations and are ready to help in any way. Whilst driving from Casablanca to Fes, Alex called us on the way to make sure we were fine, Yasmine gave us a great tip to buy porcelain and book a spa treatment. They are both wonderful hosts and make everybody feel welcomed.

Tip - don't miss the chance to dine at Palais Faraj and experience a hammam treatment. The food is wonderful, the restaurant and the palace very beautiful and the hammam just wow. Even the prices are value for money, and way under what you would expect to pay in Europe for such a premium location. The plus side is that they can arrange for a chauffeur to pick you off and drop you off at the riad, making it a very nice and relaxed experience.

All in all we had a wonderful time, very sorry we couldn't stay for longer.
Thank you Alex and Yasmine and the rest of the staff for making our stay so wonderful.

From the moment we stepped from the narrow street in the Fez Medina into the Riad Le Calife, we were enchanted with the décor, courtyard, our Opaline room and the food. It was like entering a completely different world! The owners, a lovely young couple, Alex and Yasmin were absolutely wonderful. They greeted us every morning to make sure everything was perfect for our stay of three days. They were helpful in recommending restaurants. In fact, we took the cooking class with the wonderful Fatima, the chef, on our last day and ate dinner that evening in the small, romantic dining room tasting the fruits of our labor! Fez we made all the more wonderful by staying at this unique Riad - don't miss it! Even though we were on a tour, we chose this property from Tripadvisor instead of the suggested property by the tour company. We were definitely NOT sorry!
