Un piccolo gioiello a Fes. Il riad è molto bello con la sua piscina, le stanze sono ampie ed accoglienti. La colazione è abbondante. In particolare ringrazio o staff, Touria, Samir, Samira, Klandija per la cortesia e la gentilezza

A little gem in Fes. The riad is very nice with its swimming pool, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is plentiful. In particular, thank you or staff, Touria, Samir, Samira, Klandija for the courtesy and kindness

This riad is beautiful, staff was very helpful, breakfast was great, location is fantastic. There was just one downside. When we came back from our day of sightseeing, we found a cockroach in the sink in the bathroom. But one hotel employee removed it instantly.

Merci pour votre avis qui nous aideras à nous améliorer.
Nous avons été très étonné et choqué de découvrir, comme vous, un cadavre de cafard dans le lavabo de votre salle de bain. En effet c'est la première fois qu'un tel événement se produit dans le Riad. Nous avons fait venir une société spécialiste dans le traitement des insectes nuisibles comme les cafards. Elle a fait une inspection complète des lieux et n'a trouvé aucun cafard dans le Riad. Néanmoins nous avons traité préventivement afin que cette mésaventure ne se produise plus.
Toute nos excuses pour ce désagrément, qui n'auras pas j'espère gaché votre séjour au Riad Fes Baraka.
Cordialement

I can only talk of the Riad Baraka in superlatives. It is as elegant as a genuine oriental palace, inside so quiet that you completely forget you are in the city. The atmosphere is extremely friendly and the service aristocratic. Everything just has real quality and that makes you feel extremely well when you are there. Unnecessary to say that the location is perfect: just on the edge of the medina, near to everything. I could imagine going there for 2 weeks just to have a vacation in the hotel!

A very nice and friendly Riad just a short and easy walk from the Blue Gate. The staff was incredibly warm, friendly, and helpful. Our family of four (2 adults; 2kids) stayed in the cavernous Serail (sp?) Suite. There was a large sunroom/enclosed balcony sitting area that overlooked the inner courtyard, a huge sleeping area w/ queen bed & two twins, and a dressing area. Although the decor could use just a slight refresher, I found it to have a lovingly worn look to it. The only complaint we had was that the beds and pillows to be really, really hard. Even my 10 yr old was uncomfortable. Traditional Moroccan dinners served on the rooftop under a tent. The staff arranged medina and city wall tours for us which we're wonderful. Other than the beds, we enjoyed our 3 nt stay. The two big suites are perfect for families.

Prepare for a taste of true Moroccan charm and beauty. Situated in a convenient spot in the Medina, you will find a stay in this house a special experience. Semir and his colleagues will make you feel welcome and will go the extra mile so that you enjoy your stay.

In our case, he actually walked to our taxi stand to pick us up. He wanted to make sure we would not get lost, as it was dark and we had never been to Fes. He also gave us dinner, even if technically we were too late to book the meal.

We staid in the Marrakesh room and, although our bathroom was not en suite, we found the room very clean, well kept and the arrangement convenient. The bathroom was just outside our room, and we alone had the keys.

The communal areas: the parlour by the swimming pool, the rooftop and the swimming pool area were beautifully decorated, clean, oozing oriental beauty and attention to detail.

We dined at the riad twice and found the experience rewarding on both occasions: the food was delicious and served in style by Semir, who went out of his way to make sure my tagine and cous cous would be 100% vegetarian. I especially recommend the shakshuka (sweet peppers and aubergines warm salad). You will find the chef open to suggestions and ready to accommodate your dietary requirements: no fuss or airs and graces. It's a shame she does not run a cookery class! Hint, hint...

In short we recommend this riad and hope you too will let Semir and friends make your Fes stay utterly unforgettable.

Room Tip: Have at least one meal at the riad

My husband and I went to this riad for our honeymoon back in September. The service was amazing and we had such an amazing time. The manager at the riad, Samir, made us feel welcomed from the minute we entered to the minute we left. He went above and beyond with our expections by setting up accomodations for us to go and try different restaurants and get tours. Thanks Samir!

Samir (the receptionist) and Samira (the chef and hammam massagist) were the ones who attended us: We stayed 2 nights (too short but we were on a trip that lasted two weeks) and felt really at home: Speaking French and a bit of Arabic makes a huge difference. Our room was booked so we got another room: In compensation we got the biggest suite for the second night without paying extra. Besides: we booked hammam session and they invited us both (normally its 500 MAD, some 50€) so it was more then enough compensation. We enjoyed the breakfast on the terrace (its quite some climbing up the stairs) which is a unique experience especially if the weather is mild and the sky blue (which was the case and mostly is in Fez). The hammam session offered by Samira to Olga and to me by Samira's husband are more then a beauty treatment. It gets the blood circulation stimulated and the skin looks like new. You should definitely try it while staying in the Riad! Thank you to all the team. We definitely recommend it and will come back In šāʾ Allāh! Olga and Ralf

Room Tip: go for one of the suites on the second floor. You will have more space and it will be quieter. In ge...
