Riad Rcif is a jewel. An immaculately restored 14th century private home, it is one of the oldest buildings in the oldest part of the city. We stayed in the Ambassador Suite, which was extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated, with a coffered Andalusian ceiling, metalwork chandeliers and traditional zellig tiles. You awake to light streaming through glowing stained glass.
The staff are jewels, too. Hisham, Selim, Aisha and Lahcen helpfully assist visitors not only in the riad, but on specialized tours. Riad Rcif is more than a beautiful place to stay, it is an intimate cultural center. It is both a beehive of activity and an place of tranquility. Fes is a fascinating city, but labyrinthian and disorienting. It's great to have a base that is beautiful, serene, and an entree to cultural events we otherwise would have missed. Our only complaint is that we can't live here.
