from booking we found the staff at Dar Hafsa extremely friendly and helpful.
We arrived via overnight bus at 5am and were given great instructions on how to get to the hotel. They even allowed us to check in early at around 8am and gave us a superior room at no additional cost to accommodate our early arrival.
The breakfasts are absolutely amazing, around 10 types of pastry's and breads to try including the famous Berber "whiskey" aka mint tea.
The location is great, right in the thick of things inside the Medina, but in a quiet spot just off the main street.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and do all they can to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible and in line with western expectations.
The house is a traditional Moroccan road house with a lively open sitting area in the middle of the building and a terrace on top. The rooms were all decorated beautifully and spacious with nice bathrooms, great water pressure, air conditioning and WiFi.
Thoroughly recommend this place to enjoy fez from. The owner is as nice an owner as you will find in morocco!
