This hotel is absolutely amazing! The best in town!! Staff are really nice and helpful and the hotel is so chic and beautiful indeed. Everything is perfect at this hotel! Beautiful view of the city, it is just like a palace, elegantly furnished and decorated.

Room Tip: We had the Ambassador room which is one of the best. Totally worth it!!!

On our trip to Morocco, we made Fes our last stop (wrong order of cities visited... should have started here) and were very pleased with our hotel choice. After being in a riad in the center of the medina in Marrakech, and at a kasbah up in the Atlas Mountains, we were pleased to be just outside the medina in Fes. It was a little oasis away from the hustle bustle of the medina. We stayed in the Hamman Suite which was lovely and has a small terrace. They serve a wonderful breakfast, with buffet and a la carte choices. That dining room plus the bar and the restaurant for dinner are all up on the roof which provides a 3/4 view of the city and surrounding hills. The staff was very attentive and the service was very professional. We will stay there again on our next trip to Morocco.

My wife and I stayed at a bad Riad close by but stumbled on FARAJ---what a beautiful palace. We returned for the best dinner of our two week trip to Morocco. Maitre D' and head waiter Mr. SAID was a delight. The bar area allows smoking so we hated that but the building is truly magnificient and we highly recommend folks to stay there even though it is just outside the city wall.

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.
