We stayed at this wonderful new hotel during the opening weekend of the annual Fes Festival of Sacred Music. We had had the privilege to meet the owner, Mr. Faceh, and have a look at the hotel before the opening so we knew we were in for a treat. It more than fulfilled our expectations. The hotel, adjacent to the western wall of the Medina, has all the amenities of a five star hotel. The reason for calling this the best hotel in Fes in 2012 is the excuisite taste in design and furniture, not to mention decorative and valuable art found everywhere in the hotel. Much of the interior decorations have been exclusively made for the hotel. The owner is of course ever present and attentive to all details, and the quality of service is very high without being pretentious. The breakfast buffet has exactly what is needed to start a new day in the wonderful, genuine and cultured city of Fes. We also had a meal in the hotel’s restaurant and again: few but genuinely great dishes of the best “Fassi cuisine”.
Palais Faraj will be our home away from home when we come back to Fes.More
