Wonderfully friendly, beautiful place, they make sure you're not ripped off. I can only sing of the virtues of this little pad - definitely well worth a stay.

The Riad Dar Guennoun is a stunningly attractive and thoroughly charming "tradition house" in the heart of Fes. The service is polite, prompt and - above all - extremely friendly, from the mint tea on arrival to devotedly arranging tours, dinner or breakfast on the beautiful roof terrace. Speaking English is not a problem whatsoever.

The rooms are both clean and comfortable,well decorated and complete with air conditioning, but there can sometimes be a lot of noise from outside in the evening. The roof garden has plenty of furniture and commands marvellous views over the medina.

We had dinner in the Riad both nights of our stay. The food was delicious - and came in ample quantities - served in the very comfortable salon on the ground floor. A genuine Moroccan tagine is definitely worth trying.

Fes can be quite daunting for new travellers, especially those who are obviously English, and it is very easy to get lost. It's therefore a great help to have a guide or chaperone, which the staff of the Riad are more than happy to organise.

We were in Marocco, in different cities, for 5 days and 4 nights. The first stay was in Riad Dar Guennoun. We had a pleasant welcome, and Mirjam (the owner/hostess) arranged a reliable and very good guide for us, to show us the medina. We've had diner and breakfast and it was really good, a lot of variety. We stayed in 4 different Riads, but this one was the best!
The rooms were beautiful and clean, there is a roofterrace with a beautiful view over the medina and nothing was to much to ask!

The riad is situated in amongst the ally ways of the old city in Fes. It provides moroccon culture and decor, traditional food along side friendly and welcoming staff. If you ever want to go to morocco, this riad is a place to try.

Room Tip: Just give the manager a call or facebook

Riad Dar Guennoun was our residence when visiting the famous annual music festival. Although hidden in a back-alley a little off the real centre this is a very good option for a stay in Fes. The big room on the ground floor is marvellous, as is the roof terrace which we regularly used for our breakfasts. The breakfasts were ample and delicious and also the evening meal which we had once only due to our visits to the festival was really good. The management and personnel do their best to help you with information and additional offers. We had booked the Sophia room one floor from the top and thought it was fine. The beds are good, but as anywhere in Fes, you might be woken up by the first call for prayer from the next mosque. Last but not least, take your time to have a look at the small library in the big room downstairs, too bad we discovered it only at the end of our stay.

I traveled for 3 weeks in Morocco and this riad was by far the best one I stayed at...it's absolutely stunning, extremely clean, and the food is wonderful. The staff are amazing and always there if you need something, including setting up guides, taxis, tours, etc. Location is perfect. For the price the Dar Guennoun is spectacular!!! Don't miss out on this riad...you won't be disappointed :)

I stayed in the room 'Sophia'.
