We had never stayed at a hotel like this!!! It is absolutely beautiful, luxurious and full of character!!! Wonderful experience!!!
All the staff (bellboy, waiters, reception girls, housekeeping, manager) were extremely polite, helpful and always smiling. There was a great variety of international and Moroccan food for breakfast, and the two best meals we had in Morocco was at their restaurant. Our suite was very clean with crisp white sheets and large fluffy towels, the closet had lots of space for all our clothes, and every night they would put mineral water on our night tables.
If you like being in the medina, the localization is very good. Remember though, that you need to walk a couple of blocks to reach the front door of the riad, as the streets are not wide enough for cars. Fortunately it wasn't raining!
But...... we found the room to be rather dark, and in order to get there, we had to cross a terrace, so every time we went or came from our room, we felt the wind and the cold air. Again I must say: thank goodness it wasn't raining!!
Also, when we checked-in we asked for a room with a walk in shower which they promptly managed to get. Unfortunately, the shower box wasn't sealed properly, so all the water ran under the glass and flooded the entire bathroom. When we complained, they immediately came to dry up, but the problem hadn't been solved; so on the next day we had to have a tub bath, - that was exactly what we didn't want -. Too bad!!!
All in all, even with the inconveniences mentioned above, I should say that Riad Fes is really the best place to stay in Fes!!!
