Stylish yet homely, attentive yet chilled, Riad Verus is the perfect base from which to explore old Fes. The Riad's gorgeous surroundings and fab rooftop terrace are only exceeded by the amazing service. A guesthouse where you really are a 'guest'. Highly recommended.

We had read so many wonderful reviews of the riad so we decided to splurge and book one of the suites. We paid 80 EUR a night and stayed for 4 nights.

Pros:
- Comfortable beds
- Great central location
- Owners always trying to help/ decent service

Cons:
- Noise (and cigarette smoke) travels up into the rooms and loud music was played at night but never past 11pm.
- Claims for great view over Medina but was not the case. Partial view of an area of the Medina.
- Strange (musty) smell in the rooms due to the damp, and sewage smell in the bathroom due to plumbing so you should always have bathroom door closed.
- Owners suggests that you to do everything through them (tours, food, etc.) but you really don't have to because their prices are at least 2x the norm. Food at the hotel was average but very expensive for what you get.

One last comment is that the suites have these crazy huge bath tubs. I thought about taking a bath and started to fill the tub. After 15 minutes, only about 2 inches of the surface was filled which makes it nearly impossible to actually fill and take a bath there. When asked the owner, she said it could just empty the boiler if someone decides to take a bath. I was more afraid the ceiling would collapse due to the weight of the thing when filled. So take away message is the bath tub is for decoration.

Thanks for the pros about Riad Verus how you found the beds to be comfortable and the location was central and we provided a good service.

Was surprised by the comments about smoke wafting into your rooms from the courtyard, I guess this is inevitable if windows are left open. We do offer non smoking rooms at the rear of the Riad.

Food is freshly prepared at the Riad and the price osilates between 10 to 15 euros which I do not consider expensive. Fes is an ancient city so in Winter dampness is a problem experience by 90 % of the population and since your departure the bathroom you were staying in has been remodelled and renovated. Baths are enormous but very sturdy, although we do have 2 200 litre tanks if everyone is showering at the same time to fill a 100 litre bath with hot water is best done during the afternoon, but trust me it wouldnt have broken.

All the best

We only stayed at Riad Verus for 2 nights but they were fantastic! The hotel itself is stunning with amazing decor and in an excellent location! The whole place including the rooms and bathrooms are extremely clean- you wont need your flip flops in these showers! But none of this compares to the amazing service! From the minute you walk in the door until you leave, the staff will go above and beyond to serve your every need! This included escorts to dinner, personal tour guides and so much more! For an extremely reasonable price, we experienced absolute luxury. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Fes.

Flew into Fes from London, and our stay at Riad Varus was amazing! Everything was well organised via email before we arrived, and they had a cab driver pick us up from the airport. The staff are all incredibly helpful and friendly. The Riad Varus is in a great location in the Medina, and it is very beautiful, clean and peaceful. The rooms are amazing, and the outdoor areas are the perfect place to relax and unwind. Nor, Leonora and Josef are very helpful and arranged various tours for us, as well as recommended and arranged dinners and activities! The brekky is delicious and the endless orange juice and mint tea is lovely.

We had a lovely time at Riad Varus, and would definitely recommend it as a great place to stay in Fez!

What a fantastic Riad in Fes. Incredible value for money with fantastic staff who really go all out for you (an example of this is Josef who helped us get a petite taxi when we were in danger of missing our train to Tanger).

The tour of the Medina that the Riad can arrange for you is really worth it as long as you say what handycrafts you do/don't want to see.

p.s. the breakfast is amazing!! Really sets you up for the day.
