Originally, we had booked into the Sofitel Palais as we had heard it was thee best and unmatched hotel experience in Fes..
However, when we arrived the lobby seemed a little dark and dingy. My son didn't like it at all as we had arrived from a a very new big bling bling hotel from another city. Even though the doorman was very sweet and showed him around, my son just didn't take to it, so the only other 5 star hotel in a similair price was Palais Faraj. We took a petite taxi there hoping he would settle down and approve.
We spontaneously walked into the hotel to be greeted very warmly by Nasser the hotel manager who pacified him and allowed us to choose our room.
Each and every corner of the hotel including our suite without a doubt is the epitome of aesthetics. The hotel has a very cosy riad type feel lots of beautiful cosy corners (library, bar etc..)
*The bed quality was divine with the finest bed sheets
*The bathroom was fantastic, even my hydrophobic son wanted to have a shower under the rainfall shower head
*The sitting area gorgeous overlooking the Patio
The detailing in the room the tiles, the cornicing, the granite, the furniture, the handicrafts were exquisite and unique.
*We ate at the restaurant every night (ranked 2nd best in Fes). Yes that too lived up to it's reputation.
*On the weekends the bar had live guitar singers singing to requested songs which wass very sweet of them.
*Service and friendliness factor from staff was appreciated.
Didn't try the Spa so can't comment.
The only negative would be the one previously cited, i.e. improved concierge service/ advice on getting a guide from the hotel or better shopping recommendations
