“Perfect Stay - Would love to return!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

Riad Laaroussa is a perfect oasis in the middle of the bustling medina. After a long day of hiking around the city and shopping, there is nothing better than returning "home" and being able to let go of all of that baggage. The three of us stayed for two nights (wish it had been three) in the Yellow Room, and it was plenty large for us. The room was perfectly clean and very bright. The common areas are amazing - plenty of places to sit, lay, chat, and read... good views from the roof and nice quiet rooms throughout the riad. We opted to do the dinner one night and the staff was more than happy to indulge our request for pastilla (definitely try it at least once if you visit Morocco). The staff is amazing. Each individual was always happy to see us and ask if we needed anything. There was always someone around and language was not a problem at all. Although not inexpensive, I consider Laaroussa to be a very good value - the total relaxation offered was unparalleled in Morocco. If I return to Fez I will definitely be staying here.

Riad Laaroussa is absolutely an excellent place to stay in Fez. It is a tranquil place well hidden in a chaotic yet charming Medina. The Riad is beautifully designed and decorated with attention to detail. The rooms are spacious and the Riad has a lot spots where you can sit and relax with an amazing view of Medina. The owners (Fred and Cathy) are friendly and helpful, and the 2 lovely labradors were so fun to play with. The staff (especially FZ, Badia and Abdul) are very caring and attentive which made it felt like home and made our stay even more memorable. We had 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners there and every meal was delicious. I particularly loved their Lamb Tagine and Lemon Pie. We were sad to say goodbye and regret staying there too short. We are hoping to come back to enjoy the wonderful Riad again!

The Riad has been recently renovated and is an oasis in the busy Medina of Fes. The courtyard is beautiful with lovely trees and extremely peaceful - a complete escape from the hustle and bustle outside. The views from the rooftop are fantastic. The Riad has a lovely hammam and the staff there are fantastic. We stayed in the Red room which is lovely. i would definitely recommend this riad!

The Raid Laaroussa in Fez is without any doubt one of the two best raids we stayed in Morocco. The rooms are beautiful and spacious and the staff are so wonderful that they will go out of their way to help us. The view from the penthouse is just breathtaking and we stayed there for breakfest, afternoon tea and cocktails and of course also thoroughly enjoyed our Moroccan dinners at the intimate dinning room with real fire place. An excellent raid for some romantic days and nights.

At Riad Laaroussa we enjoyed the excellent food, friendly and helpful staff, and convenient location. On our wonderful tour of Morocco with WWW.AroundMorocco.com we were fortunate to spend 2 lovely evenings in Fes and visiting the exciting medina. It was always a pleasure to return to this lovely riad and spend time enjoying the beauty of it. Staff members FZ and Asma went out of their way to always ensure that all was great.

Stayed four nights for my husband's 60th birthday and how special they made our celebration!
Stayed in Grey Suite and they welcomed us with wonderful afternoon tea and a log fire.The staff are wonderful and the owners could not do enough for you.Everything was first class..from the massage to the evening meal.We felt we were leaving family behind after our stay.
We travel a lot and I have never felt that I wanted to leave a review before

Room Tip: All would be fabulous

This is the best Riad in Fes. Once you enter the Riad from the bustling world of the busy medina it is like enetering an Oasis of calm. The staff, especially Sabah are all out standing. They helped us set up a birthday dinner for our traveling friends and also supplied a staff memeber to walk us to a restaurant late at night so we would feel safe. Excellent location in center of Medina. The best place to stay in Fes.
