“Most interesting Riad - Exceptional Service”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

This is a beautiful and historic Raid to stay in. It is an architectural gem and our host Madame Christine was charming, attentive and very knowledge about her home. The food was excellent, especially the breakfast with Christine's jams and preserves, the best we had in Fez, the rooms comfortable and clean and her staff kind and attentive. Highly recommended.

An architectural gem. The detailing of the arches and columns is of museum quality and the decor and furnishings have been chosen with excellent taste. Each suite/room is different and has its own character. Madame Christine was an friendly and informative hostess, and her breakfasts on the rooftop terrace with her home made preserves were delicious. A tip if you are arriving by taxi - ask to be dropped off at the old cinema in R'cif - you will be just 3 minutes walk from Dar Victoria.

I've stayed in many, many riads in Morocco. To me, often times the service is what sets them apart. Christine is a charming and attentive host - she will see to your every need.

The riad is lovely, the food - wonderful!

Highly recommend!

Stayed at Dar Victoria recently and was awed by the architecture and historical significance of the property. Christine was a wonderful hostess and very helpful. Our room on the terrace was beautiful and very comfortable. The Dar Victoria's location was very accessible.

Having stayed in several Dars and Rijads in Morocco I can state Dar Victoria was one of the best places we had a chance to stay in. Owned and reconstructed by French owners with an emphasis on detail. In places owned by locals one always has a feeling that the details have been omitted (something always doesn't fit, doors can't been closed, placement of lights doesn't make sense etc.). You can like it as a local specific but you will not find such things in here. We stayed 2 days and had a chance to fully enjoy the hospitality of the French manager in this beautiful house. The host was very nice and helpful, non-french speakers could appreciate her decent English. Food was delicious. We also appreciated a window leading to the street in our room since in Rijads there is always a problem with fresh air. Location of the place is also perfect since it is situated close to Medina. Avoid annoying Marrakesh! Go to more authentic Fez and stay in Dar Victoria!

Placed in the old medina, this "dar" is a fascinating piece of history, where you can feel the scent of a shining culture and civilization.
Christine - the host - can become a teacher of history of art while unpuzzling the symbolistic of the breathtaking decorations of the inner walls of the courtyard.
Each of the rooms has its own history and specific decorations - you can relax and rest while enjoying the best comfort and food, after some quite tiring tours in the babel of medina.

We stayed 4 days in this little Heaven's corner, myself, my wife and our two children (9 and 13).
This Dar is conveniently placed at 5 minute walk from Bab R'cif one of the Medina main gates and the delicious Place Seffarine, so it is ideal to visit the incredible, beautiful Fes Medina.
Dar Victoria is very clean and beautiful inside, all the suite are different and well furnished in Morocco style. There is also a large terrace on the top, on which Christine and his staff can serve breakfast (and what a breakfast we had!!!) or dinner. We stayed in Suite Saffire, large and silent, with 4 cozy beds.
Dar Victoria is run by Christine, a pleasant and interesting Frenchwoman, and with her we had the chanche tho have long conversations at night, in front of a hot herb infusion and looking at the beautiful engravings of the Dar interiors.
We choosed to have dinner in the Dar every night, and that is fine after strolling for all day up and down in the Medina souks, derbs and founduks; Aisha, the cook, pleased us every night with a different Moroccan speciality, all all the food was superb.

Thank you Christine for your hospitality, that was far more than a gentle business relationship, you made us feel betten than home.

Room Tip: Saffire suite is ideal for a family of four people, but all the Dar is silent and one can sleep undi...
