“Beautiful riad in great location”
Reviewed 24 November 2009

I loved Fes and loved Riad Fes. Beautiful riad in the Fes medina. I loved it-stayed in one of the junior suites which was absolutely amazing. Probably larger than many of the riads but still great place to stay.

I went here for my honeymoon and was immediately impressed by the lobby which is as beautiful as the pictures. We were fortunate enough to get upgraded to the Royal Suite. Thanks Marketing Manager! This Royal Suite was great but I would have been disappointed if I was paying the 1,000/night it costs.

The reason I'd give this an average review is that the hotel doesn't have anything to do. I know it's in Fez and you're supposed to walk around the alleys all day and be amazed, but I wanted to chill out a bit in a nice place - that's why I was paying above average to stay here.

The other reason I wasn't impressed was the second room I stayed in was up on the roof and I thought it would be nice, but it was clearly just a cement addition and the bathroom shower leaked all over the place and flooded the main room. So the place had a mildewy smell.

I've traveled a ton around the world and stayed in Four Seasons and in tents and mud huts so I know good and I know bad. This was certainly nice but I just expect more from a place that has rooms for 1000/night.

Lastly, Fes isn't really a place to stay for more than a day or so. It's alley after alley and stall after stall of vendors.

Fes is amazing (we liked it better than Marrakech, to be honest). And Riad Fes is just stunning! We were so impressed with the main lobby and the general decor and architecture of this place. In addition, service is great, staff is friendly. Our room was of a good size, not big, but not too small either. The room was greatly decorated though. Very cosy and comfortable. We had a little private terrace as well (but it was too hot outside to actually use it during the day). On our last day, we had some delicious food in the restaurant, which we can highly recommend. We were here on a short trip for a wedding but would consider coming back to Fes, just to stay at this Riad!

The Riad Fes is in a great location and is absolutely beautiful. The food at the restaurant was fabulous. The rooms are all unique and views from the terrace are incredible. This is the best place to stay in Fes. Enjoy!

We arrived at Riad Fes and were impressed right from the start. The desk staff greeted you politely, asked about your trip and then sat you in the breathtaking lobby and offered you a drink of tea or something cold. After you were comfortable and relaxed they started the check in process as you sat comfortably drinking your beverage on a soft cushioned couch enjoying the decor of the hotels first lobby.

The staff couldn't do more to please as they showed you around the Riad and then took you to your room. The rooms were clean and done exceptionally well. The atmosphere in regard to the decor inside the hotel was captivating. The restaurant served excellent food and the complimentary breakfast was exceptional. The bar was well equiped and the bar tender was very accomadating.

The location of the Riad was perfect and made the Fes experience easy. If you want the vibe of Fes and the comfort of a top Riad this is the place.

My wife and I spent 8 days in Morocco and we would rate the Riad Fes with full marks. Anyone who would nitpick this place should not be in Morocco. We loved it and will certainly be back one day!

Riad Fes is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen! Their restaurant is by far the best restaurant we tried in Morocco. We stayed their 4 nights and every thing was done for us to make us live an unforgettable moment. Staff was very helpful, very discreet...
The hotel is very well located, it is decorated with lot of taste.
congratulations to the owners.

We appreciated the staff's responsiveness to last-minute email inquiries befor our arrival and their recommendations and arrangements during our stay. This was our first time in Marocco and the beautiful, peaceful environment of the riad was the perfect antidote to time spent in the hubbub of the sights, sounds and souks of the old city. We did find prices in Fes, particularly for food and lodging, to be much higher than we had heard.
