Reviewed 30 March 2013

We, 2 couples with 2 children, stayed here 2 nights and it was a real pleasure. The blue gate (Bab Boujeloud) the main entrance to the medina is about a 500m walk from the hotel via Place Batha. You can park your car in the street (20 dirham per day) in front of the passage to the hotel. The Riad is beautiful, authentic and yeat very comfortable. The illuminated swimming pool in the courtyard is very special. Breakfast and dinner can be taken on the roof terrace, in the lounge or in the courtyard. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Room rates are high according to Moroccan standards, but not exceptional high for Fes.

Room Tip: There are 4 suites and 2 smaller rooms. We had two suites, the Arabesque on the ground floor with th...

This Riad was beautifully restored with original Moroccan touches rather than changing it like many other Riads have done. Samir coordinated all my needs from the room to dinner, the hammam, the massage after hammam, and our tour guide into the city. Samira was an amazing cook and wonderful hammam attendant! Best hammam I've had in Morocco! All around wonderful experience. The tour guide was good although the fees were not clear and there was another hotel employee (sarah?) who did not have the customer service skills of Samir and Samira. They trully made the stay top notch!

Tres jolie Riad, la restauration superbe et authentiquement Marocaine. Samir et Samira sont certainement la raison que cette Riad est si magnifique! Samir nous a aidees avec tous nos reservations (hotel, tour, hammam, massage, tranfers) et Samira nous a cuisinees un repas delicieux et nous a accompaniees au hammam. Genial!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights over the Christmas holidays and enjoyed every minute of it. It is exquisite and romantic with a beautiful pool and courtyard! Samuel, the manager, was so attentive to us and made sure that every detail was perfect. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and warm and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our room, one of the suites, was spacious and decorated beautifully. The delightful cook made wonderful Moroccan meals for us. Definitely worth doing the hammam! I highly recommend staying here for anyone who prefers the personal touch.

We spent our honeymoon in Fes and in this wonderful Riad that looks like coming out of 1001 night's tale and makes you feel like in a little, quiet paradise in the middle of the city... a historical palace with a beautiful patio and mauresque pool, exquisitely decorated with beautiful furniture and taken care of by a most friendly and professional staff and manager. Our suite "Arabesque" (on the ground floor) was absolutely delilghtful, like a fairy tale, but also the other suite (on the first floor, with an own little salon overlooking the pool) and rooms are beautiful. Also we were spoiled with wonderful dinners prepared by the friendly cooks. We enjoyed our stay until the last minute and highly recommend this Riad to anyone who doesn't like big hotels and pays attention to ambiance and style.

Wonderful riad, combining luxury and very good price. Charming and helpful staff: I booked a cheaper room and since it was very little for the 3 of us (we travelled with our 6 years old daughter), we were offered a bigger and nicer room without extra charge. The swimming-pool to rest after sightseeing tour around old city, the excelent breakfast, and the quiety are by far the best of it

This is a lovely riad, beautifully decorated in the heart of Fes. It's a stone's throw away from Place Batha and isn't too difficult to find. The owner and staff are very friendly and efficient and the meal that we had on our only night there was beautiful Moroccan cuisine. We were upgraded to a higher class room after our original room wasn't available, this included a 4 poster bed and en suite bathroom... i think it may have been the best nights sleep we had all holiday. Overall i'd definitely recommend this riad, just a shame we only had the one night here!

First reason I would raccomand this Ryad is because of the way you are treated. You feel like being home, cared and welcome. Also Marc is really ready to help in giving suggestion but even in practical way on how to move around the Medina, booking excursions with excellent guides and others needs that a traveller may have. Samir is really professional in his job and ready to help with his very gentle and caring manner . Hammam and the cousine of Samira are more then excellent. Rooms are lovely (esp. Arabesque), clean and very well furnished.
