Riad Laaroussa Hotel and Spa
Ranked #3 of 100 Hotels in Fes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2012

My husband and I had four nights staying in the Grey Suite which was lovely. As other travellers have said Riad Laaroussa is a real oasis in the medina of Fes. Our favourite spot in the late afternoon was up on the terrace listening to the life outside our Riad, very relaxing.
The owners and staff are all delightful and will do anything possible to make sure you have a fantastic stay. Sabah organised a guide to show us the Medina and that was a real highlight for us.
A wonderful place to stay in a magical place.

My husband, daughter and I spent three nights at Riad Laaroussa. It is a truly serene oasis in a very convenient spot inside the ancient medina walls. No cars are allowed within the walls, so after parking in the recommended parking area, the porter arrived and carted our (many) bags through the winding alleys of the medina. Within the beautiful wooden doors lies a true oasis from the bustle of the medina. We were greeted at the door and led to our huge room (grey suite). It contained a view of the orange-tree filled courtyard and a lovely fireplace which my daughter loved. We had dinner at the riad two of the three nights, which was excellent. Breakfast on the upstairs terrace overlooking the Fes skyline was always delightful and plentiful.
The owners Fred and Kathy were welcoming and helpful with restaurant and area suggestions, and truly went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The staff they have entrusted is also sincere and exceptional. FZed especially took such good care of us and was so caring toward our seven year old daughter. She also found us an excellent guide for the city at short notice.
Fes is an amazing city with medieval life humming along as it always must have. Laroussa is a lovely place to relax at the end of the day.

Room Tip: All the suites we saw were stunning and face the courtyard.

The best Riad during our trip to Morocco with JBT! Beautiful architecture, friendly staff and good location. Stayed during winter so the fire place really helps. Would love to come back if possible

This is a gorgeous, ideally located riad. Each room is beautiful and has its own character. The hosts and staff make you feel like family and the food is great. Definitely recommend a stay here if you're visiting Fes.

We were made to feel so at home by a wonderful staff that made our comfort and pleasure their complete concern. The rooms are palacial and decorated beautifully. A fire to warm our room when we returned each evening, delicious breakfasts on the roof garden with views of Fes and the surrounding mountains. Perfect location making it easy to enjoy the Medina.
Day trips were made through the riad by a knowledgeable staff. Fred and his family own the riad and they add even more life and delight to a perfect choice in Fes. There is a wonderful spa and you will find it difficult to leave this special riad.

Stayed for 2 nights in our short stay in Fes. Excellent staff were very pleasant, friendly, and attentive. Rooms were amazing - well decorated, spacious, and a great bathroom. Location is very central within the old medina. Little things were done well; for example, on arrival we were given some great homemade Moroccan cookies which one of our friends could not stop talking about for days. Overall a great choice, and probably our best accommodation in our 8 nights in morocco. A minor comment, not to take away from our dazzling stay there... If you are looking for a high quality deep tissue massage or hammam, our opinion was that what makes this place fantastic is the property, and not so much the spa.
