We stayed two nights in this Riad in Fes. When first taken through the dark maze of corridors to the main door, we were a bit apprehensive. The doors opened and we were greeted with a spectacular ambiance of beautiful hand engraved plaster, hand carved and painted ceilings, a three story entrance hall and spotlessly clean. Our hosts, Tayeb and Achmed, could not have tried harder to make us feel welcomed. We were served a four course dinner on the roof terrace overlooking the town and being basked by a full moon. We had delightful breakfasts. Our hosts went out of their way to make sure that all questions were answered and would make suggestions for day and evening excursions. We felt the friendliness was sincere and greatly appreciated. Out bedroom was comfortable and the ambiance continued with 17 foot hand carved and painted ceilings and beautiful iron wrought windows overlooking the main hall. I would recommend this Riad to anyone who visits Fes and should we return to this ancient and lovely town, we will be sure to once again stay here.
