I loved Dar El Menia! It's a lovely place hidden in a gem that is The Medina in Fes. Being a first timer in Morocco, I was worried that my friend and I would get lost, especially in the medina. It is literally a maze but the people at Dar El Menia made it seem like a piece of cake getting there. Our flight from the airport arrived an hour late and we had scheduled a pick-up(HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) and we were worried the pick up guy would leave but we found him there waiting and we were so thankful. The trip from the airport went smoothly and when we arrived at the medina we were met with a guide from Dar El Menia. He was super friendly and led us through the maze to the riad. From the outside it looks grim, but inside it is gorgeous with classic islamic architecture. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and the staff were so friendly. It was also a lovely view from the terrace. Dar El Menia is located perfectly in the medina and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to have a pleasant stay in Fès.
