I don't think I can say enough great things about Riad Numero 9, which have not already been said in so many other raving reviews, but I will try. Stephen is an incredible host and has restored this grand home into an immaculate haven in Fes.
Not one detail is overlooked- gorgeous textiles abound, fantastic antiques, fabulous food and wine, even the bath soap is wonderful.
Stephen and Atika were quite helpful in making sure we knew how to make our way through the medina without missing any key spots for sightseeing, shopping and eating. But as I said before the food was so good at Riad 9 thanks to Kitoum, we rarely ate elsewhere.
I highly recommend Riad Numero 9 to anyone traveling to the magical city of Fes and desires an equally magical place to stay. Bravo Stephen!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad n°9 is an 18th century bourgeois residence that has been reincarnated as a boutigue bed and breakfast. The decisive factor in purchasing the property was the roof terrace which has sweeping views over the medina. Riad n°9 was originally purchased as a vacation home in 1999 and underwent a 3-year restoration process. We uncovered all the original 18th century mosaics, carved wood and plaster and hand-painted wood. In 2007, we opened to the public and changed nothing believing guests would appreciate the "personal" touches throughout. Our philosophy is to offer guests the possibility of appropriating the space for themselves and experiencing what an authentic medina home feels like. ... more less
