As soon as you come through the door of Riad Verus into the central courtyard you can feel yourself relaxing! Compared to the busy, dirty, loud medina this Riad is wonderful, quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Leanora has restored it beautifully and is a great hostess. We stayed in the Caecilius room which was lovely - having a fridge in the room makes a huge difference and the iPod dock is a fab little luxury!
Breakfasts were good, as were the dinners we had in the Riad. The staff are also really attentive and helpful.
I have to say though that I would also agree with the reviewer below about the tours of the medina - we were also left to find our own way back one day (no mean feat), coincidentally after we had said we weren't interested in buying anything from our guides' friends' leather shop! This may well happen with lots of tours in Fez - it does seem to be the way, but just be aware of it. I imagine if you book an official tour guide it wouldn't be the case.
All in all though, a lovely start to our honeymoon and a lovely Riad to relax in and escape the hustle and bustle of the medina.
