“excellent BUT”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

a) don't bother staying in Fez medina because
- nothing to do in evening
- dangerous anyway to walk round and you'd get lost even if you wanted to walk about
- visit for daytime only and ONE DAY only will suffice -Marrakesh much more tourist friendly .
SO ON TO HOTEL
b) very relaxing and lovely people running it who speak good enough english and could not be more helpful .
c) hotel is really a country house 35mins by car from Fez and very isolated apart from local golf course if you like that .
d) so you NEED to have car or taxi to Fez is 150MAD each way .
e) don't expect historical setting or luxury but it's clean and has a nice pool ( too cold when we were there -it rains in April and is cold just like England!!)
f) food is v.good and hotel is only 2 years old so roof top BBQ area will be open for next season and will improve matters again .

so for service I'd give 5 stars , choice of hotel based on competition and price -again 5 stars but really why bother with Fes as is long way to drive/travel from Marrakesh and the Desert / Atlantic coast is a better bet .

Room Tip: we had smallest room i think so who knows !

Overall there is no sense to add more excited descriptions from my part to describe this riad, this is superb & fantastic, we were delighted so much by Ksar de Fes.

However fellow travellers have to know that there is no TV in all the rooms! I was a beat surprised to say it frankly...What was the idea in fighting television I can't realize.
And this riad is a beat hard to find, we had to ask locals where it is, should owners improve navigation/ access details on their & other web sites.

We arrived at night, just in time for dinner by the fireside in the atmospheric dining room (no a la carte menu but my companion had a delicious chicken tagine and they made an omelette for me with two salads).

Room was beautiful, simply decorated with a Moroccan musical instrument and silver mirrors, lovely warm (heated) deep pink bathroom, v. comfortable bed with fresh white duvet. This is a new riad, not a historic building, but they've decorated it beautifully with a plant-filled courtyard and rooms full of character.

In the morning woke up to the countryside views (Fes in the distance) and had to leave to continue our journey but could happily have stayed longer.

I had been scheduled to fly into Fez this Sunday and had booked the Riad Ksar de Fes. Unfortunately due to a last minute problem I was forced to lose my flight. I had a non-refundable tariff but I called the hotel nonetheless to let them know I wouldn't be arriving that evening. Pascal proved most understanding and agreed with the bookings service not to charge anything for my stay. I can only say hand my token of appreciation for an attitude suggestive of what customer service is all about! Thank you and hopefully I will stay with you in the near future.

We spent two nights at the beautiful riad, we knew of the distance before, but we had a car so that was totally fine. The riad is easy to find, it's very close to the royal golfcourse, on the way to Ain Chgag. Out there, it is beautiful. No hassle, beautiful spacious area and a great pool. Pascal, the owner was so helpful and generous: we had two flat tires, were under time pressure to get into the city for a cooking class, and he organized everything for us: A taxi, the repair. When we came back our car was fixed. He didn't want to charge us!! We are very thankful! And we would recommend Le Ksar de Fes to anyone who intends to visit Fes and the surrounding area!

Reviewed 14 April 2010

We (wife and 6 year-old son) had an excellent stay. The Riad is actually located several kilometers outside of Fès, which for us was a welcome change after spending some time in the downtown or medina of other Moroccan cities. The rooms were very spacious and clean; the staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. The location is the perfect stopover for a trip between Fès and the Middle Atlas area (Ifrane/Lake district).

Dear Pascal,

Again we had a fantastic time, real service and a crew that knows what people need.
For cyclists as we are it is a fantastic place to make trips in to the Middle Atlas and on your recover day a trip to Fes and Meknes.
