“Absolutely fabulous !!!”
Reviewed 22 February 2011

A tastefully renovated traditional Riad owned by a British Lady , in the heart of the Medina. Simply it couldn't have been better located, right next to the Mausoleum and the Nazarene Museum. Fatima and Mohamed took great care of us. We simply enjoyed every single moment there. Dar Siena is our home in Fes.

This is a nice informal guest house in the medina right next to the Mouley Idriss, down a little hidden lane. The location is great as is the roof terrace which has an amazing view. The staff are local, super helpfull and friendly with lots of information to share.
Try to get the top floor room which is excellent . The bottom floor room is nice but the private bathroom is on the floor below and it's very small. When we were there there was a problem with the boiler so there wasn't much hot water but everything else was good.

Dar Sienna is a beautiful traditional Moroccan Dar, that can offer everything one might need for an unforgettable Fassi experience. ….. No words would be enough to describe the amazing and unbeatable location- next door to Moulay Idriss Mosque, the stunning view from the terrace and the magic that the owner Sonhild Grey and the manager of the place Adil have done by restoring the house. Dar Sienna is a wonderful and cosy place with hundreds of charming touches which make it amazing. The house itself is very clean and comfortable; it also creates an atmosphere to socialize with the rest of the guests. However, what really makes this lovely place feels like home is the great hospitality of the staff working there. Although this was our third time in Morocco, as soon as we were drop off at the taxi park and were about to embark on our journey into the medina we were already very grateful to Sonhild for arranging beforehand for Mohamed to pick us up and bring us to Dar Sienna. This made our first experience of Fes stress- free and pleasant rather then intimidating if we had to find the place by ourselves in the Medina Maze. Mohamed was so SO kind. He explained the way to so many of the monuments and sights and went out of his way to assist us with absolutely everything we needed. In addition, what would breakfast time be without the lovely smile on Fatima Zahra’s face, her delicious breakfast (different both mornings) and assistance with the plan for the day. She also have organised several cultural activities we were eager to try.
Dar Sienna is run by energetic and very enthusiastic young people, with wonderful, pure souls, warm hearts, who mastered the famous Moroccan hospitality. They are incredibly kind and caring. We were very sad to leave, but will treasure the opportunity to know them. We cannot wait to go back to Dar Sienna.
Thank You so much Sonhild, Adil, Mohamed and Fatima

The staff, location and well decorated interior made our stay at Dar Sienna an amazing experience. The most extraordinary aspect of Dar Sienna is the exceptionally warm staff. They went out of their way to help with everything from restaurant recommendations to guiding us to the nearest ATM. Fes is beautiful but very confusing so this extra effort made our stay even more relaxing and enjoyable. When we return to Fes, we will definitely stay at Dar Sienna. Thanks Again for an amazing stay!

Having visited Morocco several times and have experienced a spectrum of hotels and guesthouses, I would unreservedly recommend Dar Sienna in Fez. In addition to its very nice decor and excellent amenities (e.g. good hot shower - a premium in any medina!), I find the following three aspects particularly welcoming:
1. its central location - it is truly in the centre of the Fez medina, and the atmosphere is just sensational. I feel more like a Fassi in a medieval neighbourhood than being a tourist.
2. its incredible staff - Mohamed and Fatima, two young and cheerful staff members who not only manage the hotel diligently but also go the extra mile to interact with guests (on a daily basis) and ensure we have a good stay in Fez.
3. its coziness - the small size of the hotel creates a very warm atmosphere among fellow travellers - a bonus point for a solo traveller like me.

You can see the heaps of praise from here, and other reviews, and well deservedly so.
