Great location, 5 mins or so from the main gate, in the Batha area of Fes. Close to the recommended cheap restaurants and the main entrance of the medina. Taxis etc close by. Cars are not allowed in the medina, so this had the advantage of being able to drive right up to it. Very quiet.
The night staff were great. Didn't see so much of the manager. Beautiful riad. Nice roof terrace. Ate there one night and it was fantastic, one of the best meals we had. Breakfast (on the roof) was good. Included cereal and fruit salad (with avocado?!) which was a nice variation. Same every day. Pancakes might have been nice if only they had been fresh and hot - perhaps a bit less butter.
We stayed in room 3 and it was OK. Nice, spacious, but very dark, the only light place was the dressing room, which had lots of hangers, but no shelving / nowhere to put anything else. The shower was in the bathroom, so the whole place got soaked and flooded (but great pressure). There were many hazards that my 6' boyfriend kept hitting his head on - beams in bathroom, main light and the bed frame. Ceiling low in bathroom, but high in bedroom. Bed was pretty hard, but OK. Never replaced the soap that was all but gone after day one - but that's minor! So close to being great, but not quite there (in our room).
Kindly made us lunch for the train (we'd asked if they could get an extra baguette on our behalf when they got the bread for breakfast), was just half a baguette each, with butter and cheese, an apple and banana each and then it cost us £5.
For the location, I'd recommend. For the rooms, not so sure. Looked in another one and it was small, with very low ceilings too. The downstairs one looked good. Thought it was pretty expensive - double what we paid in Marrakech, but maybe that is Fes? So I was disappointed for the price. It's by no means bad, but for the price, I feel disappointed. We left it too late booking though. If you are more organised, you can probably do better!
