From the moment we left the airport to be greeted by the friendly driver sent to meet us we were fantastically well taken care of by everyone at Dar Seffarine. The Dar itself has been superbly restored in the most careful and considered way, by owners Kate and Alaa, avoiding the kitch or over opulent trap that others in the city have fallen into and providing a comfortable, relaxing, and yet extraordinary place to stay. The rooms and suites are all spacious, beautifully decorated, well furnished and provide a welcome retreat from the intensity of the city beyond. The Dar is located perfectly for exploring the city and away from the more touristy areas of Fes. The city itself must be one of the most extraordinary and fascinating cities in the world. The Dar's roof terrace provides a great place to take in the city and relax away from the frantic streets below.
Kate, Alaa, Mohammed, Zouhir and the rest of the staff take brilliant care of you and you'll often find yourself provided with a refreshing afternoon mint tea. They are hugely knowledgable about their city and could not have been more welcoming or helpful. They organised a guide for us on a couple for days which was great for finding things we wouldn't have experienced otherwise. Breakfasts of breads and preserves, eggs, teas, coffees and fresh fruit are the perfect start to the day and dinners at the Dar were so fantastic you won't feel the need to dine out. In our 7 nights stay we never felt the need to go elsewhere. Dar Seffarine has only a few rooms so dinner feels like a family event and a great chance to meet the other guests. On a couple of nights Kate and Alaa cooked for us and their friends and gave us two most memorable and enjoyable evenings we could wish for.
It's the perfect place to stay in a city that will intrigue any visitor. We will definitely be returning.
