We stayed in Jardin des Biehn for two nights and had a great time. The hotel is small (9 rooms), with attentive staff and fun restaraunt (we've even attended the b-day party of the owner's wife). The rooms are all different (we stayed in Le Persan), so take a pick if you get a chance (ours had direct garden access, but was a bit dark and damp). The owner, Paul Biehn, is something of an arts person (designs interiors, clothes, writes culinary books and teaches cooking classes) and lives in the hotel - lots of style!
The location is convenient, although can be hard to find (drive to Place Batha, from there call the hotel for someone to guide you to avoid confusion). We've had issues, however, as our GPS did not have nearby streets. From the hotel it's very close to the main tourist attractions on the west side of the medina, but be ready for a 15-20 minute walk to Karaouine Mosque (very easy to get lost - after that the locals become a pest, as everyone tries to get money from you for guiding you to his shop). Overall a good location, especially if you're in Fes for a few days and want a place to relax from the hustle in the medina during the day.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Le Jardin des Biehn is a large Andalusian garden in the middle of the Medina of Fez, scented by Isfahan roses, jasmin, orange blossom and bergamot. All around stands the summer palace of a Pasha : nine rooms and suites, a restaurant, a spa and an art gallery. It is a place of harmony and charm, of luxury and fantasy, of shadows and light passing through the palms, lulled by birdsong and the murmur of fountains. ... more less
