“Top of the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

I have been in Dar Moula in July 2012 with my wife.
We have chosen to book Dar Moula because it had outstanding recensions.
Immediately when we came we have been offered with tea and a very warm welcome.
We stayed for 3 nights and the food was outstanding.
The location of the Riad in excellent.

Mr. Rashid took a lot of his time for showing us the places around, and also managed to get some very good deals for us.

Honestly I can't find any single weak point about this place.

Thank you Rashid.

If you go to Fez this is definitely the place where you want to be.
Dar Moula has been the best place where we have slept in our 10 days trip to Morocco.

i found dar moula by accident... i had already booked into another hotel, but my friends had decided to stay here. what luck! i spent only one night at my place (fantastic reviews, gorgeous, but the worst service i have ever experienced in any hotel, anywhere, ever!) and then happily moved in. rashid was such a gracious host, very caring and concerned that i was comfortable and enjoying both the dar and also my time in fès. he did such a great job with this that instead of my scheduled two nights there, i ended up happily staying a week! he made excellent recommendations and sorted a guide, a couple of day trips, and an evening at the hammam...
the dar itself is charming... just around the corner from place seffarine, it is small and beautifully decorated, with two common areas indoors, and a rooftop patio overlooking the quaraouiyine mosque, the medina and the hills that surround fès. the rooms are individually decorated and each one slightly different and very charming. the breakfasts were wonderful... and copious! it is also possible (and i would recommend) to have lunches or dinners in the dar. with just a little notice, i suppose for a market run, the food is carefully prepared and served, just as if you were eating at someone's home. the staff were so warm and friendly, it felt more like staying with extended family than in a hotel. i am actually still in touch with one of the girls!
all in all a terrific time, excellent value, a charming and wonderful place to stay with lovely people and fantastic service... i can't wait to go back. my home away from home in fès!!

Room Tip: i rated the sleep quality only very good, because as with most cities in maroc, the call to prayer d...

Not far from Bab R'cif, in a very narrow alleyway, lies the door to this beautiful Dar, finished in a traditional decor. The owner and the staff are friendly and helpful, always ready to make you feel at home. Simo ensures that your stay is as comfortable as possible and Lehmia takes care of the excellent food. Rashid will even give you a lift and show you some places of interest. The place is nice and clean and rooms heated. A very good accommodation from where to explore the huge Fes medina!

A charming small hotel in the heart of the Medina, close to the silver market. Our room had painted ceiling and lovely furnishings. Staff was very accomodating - owner drove us to a great restaurant in the old town, with wonderful food and decor and delightful music. We had to leave very early in the morning to catch a train, so I had expected we'd have to miss the breakfast, but the staff got up early for us, then walked us to the outside of the medina where we could get a taxi to the train station. I would definitely stay there again on another trip to Fes.

Room Tip: I believe there are only 2 rooms and 2 suites, so book early

Les chambres sont superbes et l'accueil est chaleureux. Tout est impeccable. On se sent bien et la vue de la terrasse est magnifique. Le personnel nous met en confiance et s'occupe de nous de façon remarquable.

The hospitality was first rate at Dar Moula, from the welcome to the departure. A great setup, with attractive, comfortable private rooms and baths (a very firm bed in our room), a common room and a rooftop terrace. The food was especially good. While the host is somewhat pushy about his preferences for your itinerary - including an arrangement with buddies for visiting the nearby tannery - he knows his stuff and is still a great host.

I was impressed by Dar Moula's excellent reviews and reasonable rates, so my husband and I stayed for five nights while we explored Fez and the surrounding region. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! We got to know the friendly and accommodating staff, and they went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. They walked us to tour meet-ups in the medina, helped us buy supplies and escorted us to the public baths, and even negotiated with our tour guides for later start times! The guesthouse is a restored 16th-century home with a panoramic view of the medina from the rooftop terrace, where breakfast is served on sunny days. The free breakfast is fantastic and includes various Moroccan breads and spreads, eggs, freshly squeezed orange juice and some of the best mint tea we had during our stay. If you're looking for a great place to stay in Fez, look no further!
