My wife and I spent two weeks in Morocco, and Fez was by far the best city we had the chance to experience. Although you need a life time for Fez alone. Karim and his daughter from Dar Hefsa were very welcoming and allowed us to really get a sense of the relaxed fassi life. The Dar himself is amazing, beautifully renovated by the owner, with excellent hygiene standards, and well located off tala sghrira, which makes exploring the medina at any time of the day very easy (especially after one of the copious breakfasts in the dar). I would recommend asking Karim for any information about where/who/what and how in fez. He is very patient and helpful. He was also useful in setting us off for the next leg of our journey to Essouira. If you want a place in Fez that makes you feel at home and not just a tourist in a riad then go for dar hefsa without hesitations
