Located in the heart of the medina, Riad Laaroussa really allows you to experience life from years gone by. You can select the room of your choice, we stayed in the "cream suite" which was a very large room with fire place. My only suggestion would be a nice Moroccan carpet on the floor. Breakfast was good up on the roof each morning overlooking the medina. We also had a beautiful lamb tagine one night, which was very romantic and co-incidentally on our wedding annniversary. There are several restaurants not far away within the medina also. All the staff provided great service and don't hesitate to assist with any request. Fred the owner and his wife Cathy take the time each day to catch up and see if you need any assistance, dinner reservation, shopping tips etc. They will ensure your stay exceeds your expectations. If you want to find that something special and haven't quite had the luck Fred can steer you in the right direction or find the right person who can. If you like to go back in time you can wonder around the hundreds and hundreds of small streets and alley ways and see craftsmen of all types completing their work. You never know what's behind those walls and everynow and again when you get a glimpse you will be amazed. If you get lost you can ask the locals and not once did we get asked for money in return. We didn't get hassled like the guide book suggested you can.

For those individuals looking for a great location within the Fes Medina yet wanting to escape at the end of the day, then Riad Laaroussa is one of the best B&Bs to consider for your stay. The renovation of this Riad is grand and each quest room is an unique adventure on its own. The owners and staff of the Laaroussa are very gracious and accommodating hosts - the service was top notch.

Although our stay was just two nights, we would at least recommend a three night stay here. On day one, strike out with a guide to see the maze-like Medina; this helps you get your bearings. Also, check with the staff to see what other activities are happening during your stay or talk with the kitchen staff about learning about local meal preparations - they are quite eager to share their culinary skills with inquisitive visitors.

For those looking for a great stay within the Fes Medina still wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the inner part of the city, then the Riad Laaroussa is that stellar refuge. This B&B was certainly one of our most memorable accommodations on our journey through Morocco and our only regret is that we wanted to stay a tad longer. Enjoy!

A beautiful and amazing riad in the heart of Fez medina, with a wonderful garden in the court and very romantic rooms, each one with a big ancient door and lovely decorations and desing furniture inside.
The owner and the staff are very kind, the service is very good and it is definitely the perfect place for a relaxing stay in Fez, a quiet breakfast on the huge terrace, a delicious traditional moroccan dinner, and a couple of hours in the spa.

The Riad Laaroussa is a small riad in the heart of the Fez Medina. It is centrally located. The service was wonderful, the food was excellent and the rooms were spacious. What makes the riad is the hands on effort of the owners, Fred and Cathy Sola. They are personable, helpful and charming. Fred is from Paris and Cathy is originally from Southern California. Fred even agreed to go jogging with me up a hill outside of the Medina that afforded a beautiful view of the Medina and surroundings.
