An amazing restored old mansion in traditional Moroccan style. A beautiful sanctuary courtyard in the middle where you eat breakfast and meals and can just relax. Breakfasts were the best we had in Morocco with a good selection of different breads changing each day and olives. We booked a dinner on site (15 euros per person) and it was the best meal we had in Morocco. An AMAZING and DIFFERENT vegetarian tajine and an amazing selection of delicious side dishes! The mother is an fantastic cook. Definitely book a meal here!
Overall the premises are beautifully done although some of the rooms are a bit tacky. You really are staying in the family house, not a hotel, so there is a lack of privacy. You can't come and go as you please but have to get them to let you in every time.
The daughter, mother and father were incredibly welcoming and helpful and made you feel at home in their house. The daughter who is the manager speaks fluent English which was easier and helpful for us.
Unfortunately we got sick during our stay in Fez from a street side eatery. We had previously booked a meal for dinner at Riad Lalla Fatima but informed them early that day that we were now sick and wanted just some very simple and minimal food for dinner instead. They disregarded this and served us a 3 course meal and told us to eat it all (and pay the full price!) - even though we had been throwing up all day! This was very upsetting at the time. Eventually our point got across and the mother was sweet enough to make us some simple rice and we had to pay only half the price for not eating the meal and sadly seeing it go to waste. All in all this made for a very awkward experience which somewhat ruined the experience for us. It is hard for us foreigners to not get sick in Morocco so it would be nice for them to have a backup plan in place to support their guests.
