“A special treat in Fez”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

My wife and I stayed at Palais Faraj for five nights during a three-week long tour of Morocco. It is a brand new, 25 unit luxury hotel just outside the southern walls of the Fez medina. Extraordinarily beautiful in design, it has suites that are so spacious and beautiful that you think you are staying in a Moroccan palace. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms spacious and modern. (Of course, like every bathroom in Morocco, you cannot shower without flooding the entire bathroom floor. I suspect that hotel architects in this country all got their start doing farm irrigation.) Not cheap. Good location, within a ten minute walk of the middle of the medina. There is a restaurant and bar with a view over the medina and a large and mostly underutilized swimming pool. Beautiful lobby and library. The restaurant has some interesting and excellently prepared Moroccan food at moderate to high prices. Breakfast was less interesting though enthusiastically served by the staff. The owner lives there and takes a day-to-day interest in the hotel and its guests. The staff are overall very helpful. When you need some shelter from the hurly burly world of urban Morocco and you are inclined to spoil yourself, this is the place.

Brief, my stay at the palais faraj during the first week on May was really exceptionnel I was in a wonderful ambassador suite .I've spent 7 days like never before in my life.the service in the Moroccan restaurant called L'amendier was outstanding excellent.the staff is very helpful and friendly and shows a high level of kindness .The weather was very warm and the suites have got an amazing interior design.during my stay I had the impression that everybody knows me .
palais faraj exceeded our expectations. When I return to fez, it is the only place I'll stay at. I have lots of pictures. If you'd like to see them you can email me.

For our first trip ever to Morocco, My partner and I booked a room at this place. (Full disclosure: A friend of a friend owns this place.) We got an Ambassador Suite. We arrived late and even without daylight, we could tell this place was amazing. It's more than a riad, it's full-service, boutique hotel. It's truly special, glamorous; and we found out has only been open a few month. Mr Faceh, the owner, and his staff were amazing and did everything possible to make our time here memorable from helping us secure a local guide, advising on wine (amazing selection) and arranging for the one hour drive to see the ruins at Volubilis (which is worth the price, you must see.) We loved Fes, mostly due to Palais Faraj. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Fes is a remarkable city and staying at Palais Faraj made our trip unforgettable. The property and interiors are simply stunning, but the real difference here is that they make you feel like royalty. The personal care, attention to detail, delicious cuisine (breakfast was a delight with their own homemade jams,) are what set this place apart.
Everything about our visit to Fes was enhanced by the caring staff and gorgeous accommodations of the elegant Palais Faraj.

This is my first holiday in fes. We chose the riad through recommendations on the internet and were not disappointed. This is the most wonderful stafff of any hotel I have ever stayed. And I have traveled around the world! I can't wait to go back! I would recommend this riad over any in World! Driss the owner is utterly entertaining. Great food, beautiful decor, and an unforgettable and most relaxing rooftop. Just Magic !
