You can tell from the other reviews that people love this place. If you are staying in Fes, stay at Dar Hafsa.
Accommodations. The rooms are basic but offer a great place to rest your head after walking the medina. The place is small by American standards (such as they are) but it is beautiful. I especially enjoyed hopping up on the roof for some awesome vistas of Fes.
Services. The friendly family running Dar Hafsa offers a feast for breakfast that should not be skipped. This was the best meal of my stay in Morocco. Honestly, you might want to stay at Dar Hafsa just to eat here in the morning.
Getting there. If you grew up in the medina of Fes, it should be easy to find. For everyone else, good luck! Tell the owners when you will be arriving and they will arrange transport from the train station. When you wander about the medina and surrounding area, go with a guide the first couple of times. You do not want to get lost in the medina. It is a fine and relatively safe place, but very difficult to navigate for visitors.
