“Loved Riad Laaroussa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2008

We had a wonderful experience in our week long stay at Riad Laaroussa. We were always greeted with a smile and the staff took genuine pleasure in engaging with us and ensuring that we were well attended to at every turn. The Riad itself was a spectacular oasis of serene beauty and comfort--a very welcomed reprieve after a jaunt thru the hustle and bustle of the crowded Medina. Many thanks to Fred, Sabah, Samira, and all the rest of the folks who made us feel at home so far away from home.

Stayed September 2008

My wife and I stayed at the Riad Laaroussa again for the 4th time recenty. On our previous trips, we were used to walking into the Laaroussa and immediately relaxing and slowing down from our hectic lifestyles amidst its superbly tranquil atmosphere. This time the experience was even further enhanced with the amazing joint Hammam and Massage experience we had in their new facility on-site.

So not only can you enjoy peacefully unwinding in the courtyard, the 'tastes like home-made' Moroccan cuisine, the breathtaking views from the roof terrace over the immensely-compelling Fez medina, the deep slumbers in individually-finished Moroccan decor bedrooms, but you can now also get a first class spa experience as well.

Riad Laaroussa has been top class since is impressive re-furb a couple of years ago, but now it has an extra string to its bow !

My wife and I can't recommend it enough for a truly romantic and relaxing change of scenery getaway.

Left w/ a bad taste because of little things when the experience should have been outstanding because of the beautiful restoration of a special property with in the old walled city. Large room w/ 20ft ceiling and fireplace opening onto a courtyard w/ orange trees and a roof top terrace w/ view of the city. Of 4 hotels we stayed at in Morocco the only one that added a surcharge for using a credit card, concierge had negative comments about a guide we hired as she had another recommendation- turned out our guide was great. Ordered vegetarian diner but staff forgot brought meat and we were charged. A littler cold in November with no carpets on stone floor (only heat fireplace). My wife had a bad cold and one staff member was very considerate bringing hot tea and oranges- but other staff need some help. Tried to write to owner but no luck.

  • Liked — The building- a beautiful reastored 17th cent palace/home you feel you are in another worldr
  • Disliked — did not feel treated as though we were staing at a palace

From a dusty, crowded shop-lined path in the medina we passed through a doorway and found ourselves in the most beautiful, peaceful, cool courtyard, flanked by tall two storey-high walls down which the Moroccan sun cast its mix of light and shadow. The grassed central part with its fountain, four orange trees flanked by beautiful white arches was just too good to believe. At dusk candles were lit and subtle lighting turned this central space into fairyland. Our room was huge, with its own fireplace (matches provided) and furnished with taste that made the most of original features – finely carved and decorated shutters, elaborate mosaic floor tiles – but also incorporated the owner’s keen eye for modern interior design. All this, together with a personable owner and the friendliest of staff, made for a wonderful stay. Food was good, staff ever attentive and generous with their time. It was so homely, but gloriously so. We cannot recommend it highly enough. And climbing the stairs to the roof terrace for breakfast each morning was a sure antidote to sloth.

Really, really gorgeous -mouth drop open- place, and terrific staff. Oh, and I cannot forget the two closest friends that I made at the Riad Laaroussa.... Bill and Ted- the labrador ambassors of Fez. These two dogs have the life! What a place! My husband and I are already talking about a return trip and we just got home yesterday!!!

We had a wonderfull stay at riad Laaroussa. Fred the owner has done an amazing job rebuilding this magnificent palace located right in the middle of the famous Medina. We have loved our delicious breakfasts on the roof deck with great view over the medina, the peacefull drinks in the very refresing patio and its orange tree and water fountain, and the romantic nights in ours royal suite with its fire place. All the staff is very nice and we can wait to come back to try the futur hamam Fred is building!

INCREDIBLE accommodations for our entire family (6 adults and one teenager); all loved the Riad Laaroussa; we had 3 different suites. An amazing center city (Medina) and view from rooftop patio is beautiful. Our first time in Fez, will definitely go back. NOT recommeded for elderly who will have trouble climbing stairs to the rooftop patio, where breakfast is served.
