Situated in a fantasic spot right in the Fes medina, this Dar (a sort of riad) was cheap and comfortable but in a fairly basic way.
We stayed for here 6 nights during our 5 week Morocco visit in 2011.
Hard to find initially because it's in the medina, it is ideally situated a few metres off the main souk alley. Sofia, the chief cleaner and organiser there, is friendly and efficient and the place feels safe and secure. Rooms vary from small to large - we had a nice large room but the place is a bit run down and basic. Still, we weren't paying Hilton hotel rates.
The drains definitely don't smell that good, but then again everything in the medina is hundreds of years old. Hot water was also a hit and miss effort, couple of showers were stone cold, others were nice and hot, and a few were luke warm.
Didn't try the 3 Euro breakfast as there's loads of fabulous eating places in the medina within a couple of minutes walk
Good points: Fantastic location. Nice and quiet. Secure, never felt that our bags were going to be tampered with. Place is constantly being mopped and cleaned by Sofia and her off-sider.
Would we stay again? For the price and location - definitely yes. Just except something clean, comfortable but basic and that's what you'll get.
