Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Had a fantastic time in Fes, this hotel was extremely nice, breakfast was very good and lots of it, the staff and owner were very welcoming and went the extra mole every time to ensure our staff was as relaxing and stress free. They were very informative to the local areas, customer service skills were exceptional, would recommend to anyone wanting to stay at this hotel. There restaurant menu and food was also superb and tasty at very reasonable prices.

Was a easier to meet everyone at the hotel.

My father and I visited the Riad for his first visit to Morocco and we loved it! The staff and owner, Reibal, make it such a wonderful experience and catered to our every need. Reibal suggested great places to eat, he knows a company that will hire a driver to take you around Fes to see the sites and it is in the mdina! It is an oasis from all the madness! The food, breakfast and dinner, are delectable and cooked with care. The rooftop terrace is a marvelous place to read a book, check your email on the free wifi, have a drink or catch up on your tan! Our room was beautiful! Two BIG beds, a large bathroom with a bathtub AND shower! There was also a lovely fruit basket waiting for us in the room! Riad Andalib made this a trip to remember and I can't wait to be back!

Riad Andalib is one of the best riads in fez, con ineptly located very close to the entrance to the medina, makes it easy to drive up to by car and then it is just a short walk, almost across the street to the medina....it is very close to many of the main sites within the medina, tanneries jewelry, mosques,library, and food markets.our visit started with a great intro to the riad and the city with the very friendly propietor, reibal idrissi. He greats wyou with tea and cookies and goes over everything you need to know to plan your visit. He is very ably assisted by his friendly staff...they will do a anything to make your visit just perfect. They also have a wonderful restraunt. For evening meals, as well as providing a great breakfast each morning. The rooms are clean spacious and fully up to date, tastefully decorated in the Moroccan style. We could not have been more happy about choosing this riad to stay at. I highly recommend this to anyone coming to fez and would stay here again on a return visit...I cannot emphasize enough how great the staff and service was here...some of the best I have ever experienced.

Owner Reibal Idrissi has created a jewel of a riad in the heart of Fes's medina. Riad Andalib's exquisite tiling, sculptured plaster walls, and masterfully carved wood doors and balcony would qualify this intimate riad for a perfect 5-star rating.

Of course in addition to the edifice, Reibal has assembled a diligent staff, an excellent chef, and offers his own passion for his guests. Reibal is a charming host and knowledgeable guide to the best of Fes. Follow his instructions (specifically to avoid local guides) and you're fine on your own. More importantly, Reibal is candid with some of the unfortunate scams that guides and merchants engage in to take advantage of unknowing tourists.

Our room--#5, Danniya--was very spacious with a large bathroom (dual sinks, shower, and tub).

As for the restaurant, Reibal was far too humble to tell us how wonderful the food is at Riad Andalib. We ate all of our dinners (3 nights) in the Riad, tried the entire menu, and can attest that everything is delicious! These 3 meals were our best in Morocco. In fact, on the last night we had three main courses among the two of us! No need to leave the luxury of Riad Andalib for dinner.

We will definitely recommend Reibal and Riad Andalib to our friends and family.

Riad Andalib was the highlight of our Morocco accommodations (we also went to Marrakesh, the desert, Chefcheoun, Tangiers, Casablanca). The room was incredibly clean, well lit, nice furniture, comfortable bed, and beautiful decorations - the building itself was very unique and well renovated. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful, and really went out of their way to make our stay easier. We also tried their food, and it was terrific - probably the best Moroccan food we had during our trip. The mixed Moroccan salads were amazing, and both the pastisse and tajine were very well made too. Breakfasts were also included and were very tasty. Would highly recommend - if you're going to Fes, don't look any further than this.

You close the door of this wonderful Riyadh in the middle of town and you feel like in a cloud of peace and luxury. You can tell that the wonderful owner has an eye on all the details. The rooms are large and equipped with everything you need. There is not a speck of dust to be found.

And the food! You don't need to go anywhere else. We spent my husband's birthday there and even had a birthday cake!

The friendliness of the owner Reibal even covers 'warding off evil spirits' as he despises any kind of dishonesty or ripoff. So a vendor doubling the agreed price when bringing the merchandise to the Riyadh was just shown the door with very clear words of advice.

As it was cold we only used the rooftop terrace to catch the sun in the afternoon, but these moments were priceless.

You come as a guest and leave as a friend! Thank you Reibal for this wonderful experience. A 5star hotel couldn't be any better.
