Hidden in a dusty alleyway like so many of Fez's marvels, you enter the building through a drab alleyway right on the border of the old city (more convenient than lodging in the middle of the city where taxis can't reach). Once you get inside, however, this riad is absolutely gorgeous in every respect, with opulent rooms and amazing restored decorations. Plus, their kitchen serves the best food we had on our entire trip in Morocco. However, even this is not the best part. The principal guest relations staff during our visit, Mohamed and Khadija, were not only completely fluent in English, but wonderfully kind, attentive, and proactive hosts. Staying here, we truly felt like honored guests in a palace. Thank you, Khadija and Mohamed!
