“Great location! Amazing food! The Best Host!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Couldn't have asked for a better way to start our trip....

Due to delays, we arrived Fes later than expected, which left us with only a full day to see all of Fes. Thanks to Mr. Reibal Idrissi, we were able to see and experience Fes to more than our own capacity and expectations. He really knew how to host guest and make them feel at home. He sat down with us and drew out all the places we should go and gave us the BEST tips to survive and enjoy Morocco! Thank you.

The food at Andalib is possibly the best in Fes. My husband felt that they served us the best Tagine out of all the places we went in Morocco! (7day trip)

The location of the Riad can't be beat! It's the best in all of Fes! Why? It's right in front of the Medina and all the cab drivers know where to drop you off. If you have a hotel in the Medina, you're on your own to find the place because cabs aren't allowed inside.

I couldn't recommend a better place to stay in FES!

This top notch hotel is located in the old medina of Fes. I can recommend this hotel to everyone who plans a visit to this city with the oldest university in the world. This hotel is an original riad with a unique patio in the middle of the building. The service is excellent; super friendly staff! We feel like we are at home invited by friends. The roof top restaurant is definitely worth a visit due to the nice view and delicious food. Our room is very spacious with a bath and seperate shower. In one word fabulous!

The owner sat down with us for tea and gave us the rundown of how to best spend our time. He sent us personal emails before we arrived to help us with our travel plans. The staff were really great, spent extra time helping accommodate our large group. Several of our group where staying at another place (had booked earlier) and the owner here called that owner and helped arrange for them to get there safely even though he had nothing to gain from it. Really recommend this place! The roof top was beautiful!

Riad was very easy to find. Every taxi driver seems to know Cinema Amal which is right beside it.

Reibal was excellent giving us great advice about Fes and also a day trip to Volubilis and Meknes. We took his advice and had a an amazing day with a private driver ... Expensive but worth it.

Breakfast was fantastic each day. A selection of breads with cooked eggs and juice and tea/coffee served in the courtyard. It was a pity that the courtyard was not open but as it rained one day while we were there it was understandable.

A particular word of thanks to Hasan and Nadia who were excellent hosts and attended to our every need.
The room was great. Spacious with every mod con including a much needed fridge.

We didn't like Fes itself that much but that was nothing to do with this Riad which was excellent.

Riad Andalib was the first place we stayed upon our arrival to Morocco. After landing in Casablanca and a train ride to Fez, Reibal, the owner, and his staff were very welcoming with tea and biscuits. The Riad was decorated in traditional Moroccan style with mosaic walls, beautiful carved doors, decorated ceilings and fountain. Since we arrived late, my daughter made arrangements with Reibal via e-mail to have a late dinner. Our dinner consisted of Assorted Moroccan Salads a Beef Tagine with veggies and Pastilla Fassi. The food was delicious and I still crave the Assorted Moroccan Salad! We also enjoyed breakfast daily and again, not one disappointment with the exceptional breakfast selections.
The rooms were all decorated beautifully and very comfortable. The rooftop deck was lovely to relax after a day in the Old Medina. The Old Medina is walking distance from the Riad.
The staff at the Riad were very attentive and could not do enough for us. Such an enjoyable stay!
I would highly, highly recommend Riad Andalib. Shokran(Thank You!) Reibal for the memorable stay! Insha'Allah we'll return someday.

Room Tip: Free Wifi in public areas. No problems with connections.

Just walk out the front door and into the old part of the city. Owner is very friendly and gives great advice (and a map). He gave us great directions to get off on the right food in a crazy city. Restaurant on the roof is really nice and peaceful, though on the more expensive side. Their wine from Volubilus is great. Room was very clean. Staff is attentive. Breakfast was filling.

Stayed here recently for five nights and the service was faultless. A lovely warm welcome with tea and biscuits on arrival which was needed after a long journey. Great advice from our host on how to navigate the medina and what to see and do. Ate in the restaurant for 3 nights (very unusual for us to eat in the same place more than once), the Moroccan food and wine were delicious. It's also a great location as you are in the Medina but can get dropped by taxi/car at the door.

Reibel and his excellent team really do all they can to make your stay enjoyable. Can't recommend it enough.
