Fes was our third and final stop on our recent holiday trip to Morocco. Dar Hafsa, a traditional 19th century home that has been well-renovated, is decorated with wonderful examples of traditional Morrocan craftsmanship (painted doors, ornate tilework). You are encouraged to make yourself at home while getting to know the family that runs the riad. The breakfast (included) featured a table full of different Moroccan pastries, washed down with coffee and/or mint tea. Dar Hafsa’s English-speaking owner, Abdulkarim, is very friendly and made every effort to ensure our stay was pleasant, from restaurant recommendations to shopping suggestions. The riad is difficult to find, down a quiet alley off Tala’a Seghira, but he will arrange a meet you at the Bab Boujloud (Blue Gate) Fupon your arrival. At this price (€60/night for Room 3), Dar Hafsa is a good value in the heart of Fes’ old city.
