Great Riad in Fez. Essentially in the medina, right next to one of the main entrances.
Beautiful rooms, and we were upgraded to a suite with a large balcony overlooking the grand courtyard.
Hooda, hana and khalid were wonderful hosts. Lots of personal touches.
Fantastic water pressure, modern bathrooms, lovely travel soaps/lotions/plush bathrobes.
Luxury for a decent base price off season.
Traditional decor in the riad which is really lovely.
Nickeled and dimed to death!! Part of that may be cultural but it was tiring. X isn't included (even though listed as included) kind of thing. Albums of pricy tours during breakfast. The guide the arranged was very expensive for the medina tour (which we found out later).
Very expensive food, would recommend eating elsewhere for that price. Bless their heart, but the food was not tasty.
The heater didn't really keep the large rooms that warm in the winter. Im sure on the summer it would be nice and cool though.
All in all, very comfortable, beautiful, lovely people but the constant pressure for dinner/tours/organizing stuff was a little much. Wish we would have said no to the "offers" more than we did, but didn't want to be rude.
1.Take taxi from train station, hotel will charge you 20+ euros(!) but it was only about 25 diram.
2.Directions: make sure you ask taxis for "recife medina" and ask taxi driver to call the hotel for you on your way there. nobody understood "recife near bmce bank" since bmce bank has many atms or branches in fes.
