Everything was great, the staff the place the service. It is close to medina but not inside the place, more of a hotel than other places we stayed in in morocco. Their spa is more than fine, it is expensive, though. If you have a chance, spend a day here in the spa and enjoy the pool and the great architecture.

It’s one of the best boutique hotels I’ve seen, a truly 5 stars hotel.
They did a great job turning this old palace into a hotel. It’s typical Moroccan style, the mosaic, lamps, courtyard, fountain and pool, wooden doors with paintings, hand painted ceilings …. very detailed and beautiful!!

Great service, staffs are smiling all the time and do their best to help you, very efficient too.
Our room is luxury with a living room, bed room and bathroom. Bed room has the best linen, everything they use in this hotel is top of the line. There is a bathtub which I love. Hot water works great! (It’s not common in Morocco.) They have nice thick towels and robes.

It’s located in south side of the old medina, on the hill. It’s 7 minutes taxi ride/Dh15 (like USD$2) to the popular Blue Gate (Bab Bou). The view is stunning!

Best yet, they have great chef and restaurants. Complimentary breakfast is wonderful, there are fruits, eggs, pastry and breads, cheeses, salamis, smoke salmon, coffee and tea…..

We had dinner twice here, the best grilled fish, salad…. Have to try seafood pastilla. Most of the restaurants in Morocco serve chicken or pigeon pastilla which I found a little dry, plus they put powder sugar and cinnamon on top the baked meat pie, it tasted kind of funny to me.

You don’t see seafood or fish pastilla often on the menu. They don’t put powder sugar and cinnamon on top of the seafood pastilla. Plus, Palais Faraj chef makes the best seafood/fish pastilla, it’s very yummy and not dry at all.

If you don’t stay here, have to come here to dine or drink at the bar and enjoy the best view.

One of the best hotels I have ever visited .I am talking about the rooms, the bar, the restaurant, the breakfast , the hammam, the library and of course the personal, the cleanlyness and the overall comfort. Just amazing how these people run that hotel , which is a palace !

The hotel was recently refurbished and is beautifully cared and decorated. The rooms are all equipped with shower, bathtub, robes, everything. They expect you with water and sweet Moroccan oranges, not to mention the delicious mint tea with Moroccan pastries you already had at check-in. It was also the best breakfast we had in Morocco.

We had an exciting stay in Palais Faraj. The suit 17 was wonderful and in my opinion, one of the best suites i have yet stayed in my life. Refined decorations, perfect welcome! The staff left no place for remarks! fresh flowers everyday, and the spa was an adventure; enjoyable! The massages and the hammam were also part of this wonderful adventure! The St. Sylvester dinner was remarkably one of the tastiest dishes i have yet consumed! Remarkable and attentive staff despite the crowd. Will definitely come back!
With Love

Room Tip: Choose Suit 17!

We arrived at Palais Faraj suites et spa with great expectations...(as you would when you are paying for a 300 euros/night hotel in Morocco!). All in all our whole stay was one big frustration. Most of the staff is kind but doesn't have a clue about what the quality of service in a five stars hotel should be. They obviously have no training. All our requests were dealt with a " yes, sure" with not one follow up, we just had to repeat our requests over and over again. The food and the room were overall nice but not amazing and totally overpriced. The hotel is not that calm neither, we were kept awake by a constant grinding noise that seemed to come from the basement...My daughter was laughing telling us there was a "truck factory" under the hotel...! When we asked about this, our questions were deliberately ignored. This hotel has some serious management issues, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone...

What an amazing hotel and experience in Fes! The hotel very graciously upgraded us to a suite as we were on our honeymoon. The suite was very impressive, with a walk in wardrobe, spacious living room very intricately detailed Moroccan handiwork and a beautiful bedroom that overlooked the facade of the palace/hotel. Every detail of the suite was beautifully thought of, with fresh flowers in our room everyday. We used the spa facilities on both days and thoroughly enjoyed the hammam and massages. The rooftop restaurant and bar overlooks the medina and the food was delicious, and the staff very attentive, despite the restaurant being very crowded. Best hotel in Morocco!
