I booked this riad based on feedback found in Trip advisor. For one night during weekend. And was not disappointed. It's recommended to arrange a pickup because it's hard to find.
Then to walk from the riad to the city center Zouk takes a bit of time through a maze of small streets almost guaranteed to get you lost.
The food was absolutely great as was the room. Almost a waste that I was by myself as it's absolutely romantic.
Staff was very helpful and made sure my short stay in Fes was not wasted a single minute. They helped arrange a guide that appeared to be great, knowledgeable and professional. Only limitation was that on such short term no English speaking guide was available so I settled for a French speaking one. Which is a bit more difficult for me but worked out very well.
All in all a memorable visit.
There is a kind of library room downstairs also.
Note that the rooms are not like in a hotel. It´s like visiting a very old large family house. Rooms centered around the inner courtyard. Doors of rooms seem generally open and accessible. It doesn't seem like things get stolen here ever but on the other hand... it shouldn't be very hard if anyone would try it.
