Dar Drissi
Ranked #61 of 223 Fes B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 November 2011

Dar Drissi is a hidden gem in the heart of the Medina! Tastefully furnished, with an eye for detail, it has a feeling of true grandeur. We stayed in the Grand Salon, spacious and lush, with its own private balcony overlooking the court yard and its cosy en suite bath room with both shower and bath. Up on the roof, there are two delightfully inviting seating areas, sheltered from the elements, in authentic Bedouin-tent style. On our last day Kebir, the manager, went the extra mile to pamper us and serve us breakfast on the roof terrace. Kebir speaks fluent English and French; he is kind and helpful, yet not intrusive, happy to whatever it takes to ensure an enjoyable and comfortable stay. We would not stay anywhere else in Fez, thumbs up for this place!

Back home to Vicenza, Italy, from a fantastic four days long weekend spent in Fes in the wonderfull, comfortable and well positioned ryad Dar Drissi, we send a big thanks to Kibir and Dar Drissi management for the hospitality. During the stay in Dar Drissi we felt ''at home'' thanks to the hight level of the Ryad and to the support of Kibir, always avaiable to help us for any requirement. We warmly suggest this guest house for your stay in Fes. Thanks also to Julian who supported us during the reservation. Our experience in Fes was fantastic from cultural and relax point of view.
Many thanks again from Vicenza family.

A friend and I had a lovely one-night stay in Dar Drissi recently and were really charmed by it. It is large and airy (though the rooms vary in size from enormous to snug, so choose wisely; the enormous rooms are really something special), exquisitely renovated, spotlessly clean, and has a terrific view from the rooftop. The common are on the ground floor was comfortable for hanging out or having a meal. The host Kabir was friendly and helpful. As with a lot of riads, getting above the ground floor requires navigating a rather narrow stairwell, but it was well-lit and had a solid railing.

After browsing TripAdvisor, we chose Dar Drissi. They deserve their good reviews. After emailing them, they promptly replied that they had a triple room available. Kibir, the manager, met us at the bus station and got us a taxi. It is important that you arrange to meet someone because you'd never find this place on your own. We put on our packs and had a short 5 or so minute walk down the main street of the medina. Then, you turn off onto a very narrow, dark alleyway. You come to Dar Drissi and the door opens into a beautifully restored riad. Kibir gave us a map of the medina and was very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean, comfortable and lovely. Breakfast was great, complete with freshly squeezed OJ and good french press coffee. We wanted to get a guide to take us around the medina and Kibir called and arranged this for us. The guide (can't remember his name) was fantastic. He was friendly, knowledgeable, spoke good English and gave us some great insight into the Moroccan way of life. There was no hassle and no shopping stops.

We have stayed in Dar Drissi for 2 nights this august and enjoyed every minute in this lovely restored Dar rigth in the center of the medina. We had the whole house just for us which was actually a lot of fun. The service was gorgeous as was the breakfast and the director of Dar Drissi who explained us a lot about the restaurantion, the building and of course Fes.

I can only recommend this place to everyone visiting Fes!

If you want to spend some time in a typical medina home that has been lovingly restored using a lot of the original features then this is the p;ace to go. The rooms are all clean and well looked after. Kabir the manager was helpful and met us at the gates of the medina as it would be difficult to find on your own. Medina is on your doorstep although you wouldn't know from inside the house as it is quiet. Lovely open ceiling in courtyard where you can hear the birds singing in the mornings and watch the starlings roosting at night. We were directed to some lovely places to eat and even had an escort to take us to a family restaurant. As we were there during ramadan is was useful that breakfast and food was provided in the house. We took the train from Tangiers to Fes first class very cheap and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Kabir send a taxi to meet us at the station. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and want to go back again when it is cooler as there is so much more to explore outside the medina and the surrounding countryside. Give it a try.
