We spent 2 nights in this riad and loved it. The owner went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The room was beautiful, and the breakfast was amazing. Wifi worked great in the rooms.

This Riad is on the the outskirts of the medina but still easily accessible with a car. (I.e. No lugging bags through the narrow alleys looking for your accommodation) the manager, Cassim, was extremely helpful in every respect. The riad itself is lovely, and beautifully decorated.

An EXCEPTIONAL hotel!

I was traveling on business to Casablanca and wanted to visit Fes over the weekend. My trip started with a driver picking me up upon at the airport (arranged perfectly by the Riad Ahlam) with arrival at the hotel at 02:00. The hotel staff greeted me with open arms and made me immediately feel at home at this godly hour. Absolutely outstanding hospitality here with an extremely caring staff who felt like a part of my family after 2.5 days. Thank you, Kareem, Naja and all of the staff!

The attention to detail at this splendid hotel is amazing with a collection of ceramic tile mosaics to die for! So much to look at with new discoveries daily. The owner has a real taste for quality and historical design. My room was huge and oh so comfortable.

This is an amazing hotel tucked away from the wonderful and entertaining market less than 5 minutes from the hotel. Great food and facilities. This is top notch A++ quality. Do not miss your booking at this hotel located in the heart of wonderful Fes!!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms here are splendid!

This Riad is just off the maddening lanes of the Medina - very accessible and quiet. It is a lovely old building, with beautiful details.

Our room (probably a suite?) was huge and the beds were very comfortable, with good WiFi. Staff were very helpful.

We just had 2 small niggles:
- the drains in the (lovely) bathroom smelled. While this is common in Morocco, here the problem was bad. It may have been a temporary problem - we were there over the new year.
- the manager (owner) is just too obsequious, and tends to take hours telling you what wonderful service you are getting.

I left my group and my previous Riad to seek a clean bed and shower. The Riad is inside the Medina and only about a 10 minute walk from the tanneries, a popular attraction.

It's very clean and the people are humbling and accommodating.

Spacious rooms and great breakfast plus great views from the terrace.

Also a 5 min walk to the infamous CLOCK cafe. Look it up!

You ll be very happy to choose it as your place to stay inside the old city.

Tucked away in the lanes of the Medina is truly a beautiful oasis. We were pleasantly surprised not only with our rooms as well as the facilities but also with the hospitality offered by the staff and riad manager.
The hotel manager went above and beyond his duty to ensure that we enjoyed our stay and that we are happy at every moment.
The rooms were comfortable and clean with a true sense of Moroccan flare.
My most memorable experience is of course learning to cook with Fatima the riad's chef, an amazing woman with the most beautiful smile and warm heart. Each meal was prepared from the heart, we had the most lavish spreads for breakfast and our dinner on our last night in Fes was absolutely delicious.
The riad also features a rooftop where we watched the sunrise and sunset.
Highly recommended as a must stay when in Fes!

Room Tip: suites are large and has an amazing shower that resembles a hammam

What a stunning hotel!! Our stay here has been amazing! The hotel itself is a beautiful place with stunning luxurious rooms and a fantastic breakfast area. The breakfast itself consists of very sweet breads, pancakes, jams, etc., so if you don't have a sweet tooth (which most of Moroccans do) I'd advise you don't have to much of those. Yet on the two mornings we were there, the breakfast did change (so not the same thing every day) and the food was delicious (especially the cheese omelette and the fried onion pattie)!

The manager himself can be a hectic drama queen, but he means incredibly well. He's very helpful, and I suggest asking him to select a tour guide for you, as he chooses the best ones (tip: ask if you can have a man named Kalib, he was fantastic!).

As for the rooms, ours was amazing. The rooms here are big and specious and very nice. Another great thing for travellers who aren't used to the Imaan calling people to pray at 5 in the morning, at this hotel, you can hardly hear them at all from your room.

So, all in all, a fantastic place filled with wonderfully helpful people, a good breakfast and a beautiful room.
