Set in the heart of the Medina, Riad Numero 9 is an oasis of beauty and tranquility amidst the hussle and bussle of the Medina.
Our room was incredible - from the beautifully intricate painted ceiling to the eclectic mix of furnishings gathered from around the world, the decor managed to be perfectly in-keeping with the Moroccan tradition yet with an ingenious twist which demonstrated Stephen's flair and easy style. There are breathtaking views from the roof terrace over the medina's rooftops and across to the foothills - we found no better place to watch the sun set whilst sipping a chilled glass of wine. The delicious meal prepared by Bruno (which we enjoyed on the roof terrace) was the best meal we had in Fes and a perfect way to spend our 10th wedding anniversary.
However, the thing which really sets this boutique hotel apart from any other is the warmth and generosity of its hosts, Stephen and Bruno, who made our stay unforgettable. All we can say is that we will definitely be back.......
- 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
