I would definitely recommend this Riad. New to Fez the owner (Karim) was fantastic at making us feel comfortable and welcome. As two girls travelling alone the first few days in the busy medina can be quite daunting but Karim went out of his way to make sure we got the most out of our stay, visiting the tourist hot spots as well as experiencing some of the hidden gems of the medina. The hotel itself is lovely, clean and comfortable with a great view of the medina from the roof top terrace. The breakfast is equally good and very filling! Wanting to see the desert Karim arranged for us to meet with a local,family ran tour provider to organise our trip, which we really enjoyed.
Karim treats you as one of the family and we would definitely return to the Riad should we ever return to Fez.
