We choose initially that Riad because we were looking for a good rated one with a pool, a garden and some space for a 4 nights stay. We had made the right choice! The pool is nice and large (a bit cold at this season and a shortage of sunbeds in the afternoon), the garden is well managed and beautiful and our room was huge (Family Suite: 2 nices rooms+2 bathrooms, all v well decorated with local style stuffs). Also the room is located in a part of the Riad where the room is alone, so away from potential noise nuisances (even so you are located in the Medina and you cannot avoid Mezzin Calls at 4 am...).
Breakfast is good (read some comments saying quantities are small, but you just need to ask for more if you need and you get more breads or pancakes or crepes). Owner and stage manager are v kind, helpful for visits or restaurants adresses. You can also choose to have your dinner at the Riad, where food is good but 2 times more expensive than outside.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Alkantara is an exceptional location within the walls of the medieval city of Fes; it is a hidden enchantment in the heart of a shaded area surrounded by 5 riads of different periods and architectural styles that have been restored with patience and passion to unite modern comfort and the splendours of the past in an exquisite alchemy. The garden has a vast swimming pool surrounded by greenery and supplied with pure spring water, there are many fountains and patios, where you can relax and listen to the birds soothing singing. At nightfall the delicate light breeze from the Atlas Mountains highlights the assorted fragrances of musk, jasmine and honeysuckle. The oriental sweetness and delicacy is revealed. In the vein of Italian theatre, the esplanades located at various levels are very well adapted to all types of events, whether cultural, artistic or just for amusement.
