We didnt reserve a room, but took a chance and followed directions to Dar Tamo in the wee hours in the morning. Abdel was so nice to let us view a room on the second floor, and we were given an early 'check-in' without any additional charge. We were even given free breakfast when we came down!
We had a very pretty room, with a double bed and a sitting area which could double as a third bed in the room. Our connecting bathroom was spacious and we had no problems with the hot water (although you have to wait a while before the hot water comes on)
Although a bit pricey compared to other places we've stayed at in Morocco, we loved staying in the Fes medina. Getting lost in the souk seems a bit daunting at first, but after a few wrong turns and exiting at different parts of the medina, you get the hang of it. You'll be provided with a map by the riad, and even offer to 'locate' you in case you've lost your way.
Dar Tamo serves very good breakfast, which we looked forward to every morning. We always return to the riad before dark as a precaution as we didnt know how dark it would get around the medina.
Rooms are not really sound proof as we could hear conversations from the ground floor, but it wasnt an issue.
Internet connection is stronger at the lobby, with weak access in our room.
