Riad Verus
Ranked #30 of 217 Fes B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 December 2012

My partner and I had a wonderful 3 night stay in this riad in Fes's Medina. It's a family run place, which means it has a friendly, relaxed feel, and as guests we were made to feel very welcome.

The building has been lovingly restored by its owners Nor and Leanora, with lots of lovely authentic touches like ornate plasterwork and brass lanterns - it's a real treat at an affordable price. Our room was tastefully decorated and very clean. We especially liked the communal sitting areas downstairs and on the roof: they had a good atmosphere and made it easy to meet other guests.

The people who own the riad speak great English - Leanora is British - which made our stay run smoothly whenever we wanted to arrange excursions or find out about anything. The other thing is that the medina can be confusing at first... however, Riad Verus is well located not far from Batha - and is helpfully signposted so we could easily find our way back without needing to ask the staff to help us out!

We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting Fes!

Stayed: November 2012, travelled as a couple

Riad Verus was an incredible base for my wife and I to experience the romance of Fes. The rooms are spacious with impeccably clean bathrooms, and terraces that enable you to sample the beauty of the surrounding neighbourhood. Leonora and her team are first class hosts who are wonderfully genuine in the welcome they extend and the effort they put in to make your stay a memorable one. Can't wait until we have the opportunity to return.

Had a wonderful stay and it was so kind that the staff went out of their way to guide us through the maze that are the streets to their favourite restaurant (a local, non touristy, also trip advisor rated restaurant called Sekaya). Jo (joseph, or yousef?) even picked us up from the restaurant to guide us back to Riad Versus. Fantastic !!!

I found the staff here very friendly and helpful, without being in your face over pushing trips/excursions.

The Riad itself is nicely decorated and there are communial spaces downstairs and a great roof terrace, with some nice views of the Medina and surrounding area.

The directions given from the Rad provided an easy arrival and i was greeted with a welcomed mint tea, this was a nice touch after a long train ride.

The bedroom was spacious and clean and had everything you would require. There was no issue with noise and i had a great nights sleep.

I didnt have the breakfast as i was leaving early and i think it starts at 9.30am.

It is located near one of the main gates of the medina and i was provided with good instructions on getting to it and then advice for getting around once there.

I would recommend this Riad as a place to stay.

One note is the city tax that i didnt know about and wasnt made aware upon booking, but its only an extra £4-i think?

Very clean and tidy facilities with english-speaking, friendly staff, besides being close to one of the main gates of the Medina at a very quiet place perfect if you want to have a good night sleep. I spent 2 nights here and would highly recommend.

We had read some mixed reviews on this place but we had a great stay. The rooms were clean spacious and the general chilling area down stairs gave a good atmosphere with other guests. The breakfast was perfect set us up nice for the busy shopping days that lay ahead in Fes.

Would definitely stay here again, but don't try to walk to or find on your own from the train station, just get a cab to the fountain.

Thank you so much for your review and yes you are right we get a mixed bag of reviews, some people love us and some not so much. The clients that we vibe best with are open minded, chilled, looking for a high standard and are on a tight budget but realise we cant offer 5 star hotel service and that we are a hostel run by a young management team but then again we dont charge 5 star prices!

We are so pleased you would love to return and we are so pleased you liked the breakfast so much and the cleanliness of the rooms, the spaciousness and also the great atmosphere from fellow travellers.
