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.

I think that it has all been said before.

Most outstanding is the helpful and caring attitude of the family owners - nothing is too much trouble. They are VERY keen to make sure that you enjoy your time in Fez. This includes great advice and directions and even teeing up some bargain shopping.

Breakfast is spectacular and there IS coffee - contrary to some reviews - and it IS good.

Many languages spoken, all cummunication before and during stay was great.

Clean room, good water pressure, hot water.

Good place, good people.

I stayed in this Riad with my friend. We did a trip from Marrakesh to Casablanca to Fez.
We came by train from Casablanca and a (false) guide tried to convince us that this place was trouble. He told us to book some other place, but luckily we where informed by Dar Hafsa and Lonely planet for the people who work on trains to get commission if you change your booking. Don't believe them!
We were picked up at the blue gate to find the hostel and from the minute we walked in we felt very welcome!

Room: we had the top floor room witch was great for us. Two separate beds, ensuite bathroom, heating and beautifully decorated. Close to the terrace

Breakfast:
Great choice of different types of bread, with jam, honey and cheese.
The best we had in Morocco.

Service:
First, we weren't impressed by Fez, two girls there in the street seemed like asking for trouble, especially during Friday prayers. We were hassled in the streets and it was very unpleasant. The family of dar hafsa felt very guilty about it and did everything they could to make it up, even it was not their fault. We followed a cooking class next door on that Friday and it was really enjoyable to spend our time there. We learned a lot about the Moroccan cuisine and hospitality. We even went to the market together to buy the ingredients.
Next day we saw fez with a guide and that was nice.
The host family of Dar Hafsa really made us feel very welcome!

Location
Good location near the head street of the old medina. Easy to find.

When I return to Fez, I would definitely choose Dar Hafsa again! I would recommend it to everybody.

Room Tip: Ask for the top-floor room. Quiet and not near the guest family's living room... You have more privacy there :-)

If you are looking for a plain, unpersonal riad where you are just another guest then this is not the place to be. If on the contrary you are looking for an accommodation where they take care of you as if you were a member of the family then Riad Dar Hafsa should be your place of choice !
Warm, caring, lovely owners who assist you in any way they can. Having trouble finding that special item to buy, picking out the right restaurant, wondering how to make that yummy tajine ? Sit down and have a cup of mint tea with your hosts and they will tell you.
Delicious, lush breakfast; cosy rooms; a sunny roof terrace and the feeling that you have a home in Fes, that is this riad in short.
Recommendation: Take a cooking class with the lady next door and find out how to prepare your favourite maroccan dish. A winner !
