Beautiful riad. The staff - Anas and Adile - are very attentive and helpful. Dinner at the riad is great, too.

Great Riad....a little hard to find though
Loved this riad, and the staff were so friendly and helpful, and went above and beyond to make our stay there good. The only drawback is the location! Its definitely hidden inside the medina through windy pathways, and our first day there was a disaster, trying to find the place with our luggage on google maps, and hauling our luggage there (think at one point we wound up accidentally going through the fish market with our luggage!). Word of advice: hire one of the porters to take you to the riad (should be between 10-30 dhs, but will be worth it until you know how to get there yourself). Also, the riad offers tour of the medina, through a guide they use, called Abdul. I don't recommend him because he overcharged us for the taxis we took (if the meter said 15dhs, he asked us to pay the taxi 30 dhs), and did something similar when we grabbed sandwiches.Perhaps he assumes that because you're a tourist, you can afford to pay extra? Wasn't impressed with this! The Riad itself though, was great, breakfast was good, and would recommend it.

This was such an authentic Riad and it was located in the medina. It is currently adding a new wing and this wing will be a great addition and will include an elevator.

The Riad and the individual rooms are beautiful. The staff is helpful and the breakfast is pleasant. I lowered the service score because we had an unpleasant experience with a tour guide they booked for us, but the staff helped us navigate through it.

The property was lovely. It was so special to spend time in a beautifully restored riad from the 14th century. How often do you get to do that? But as nice as the riad was and the amenities they had to offer, the staff was incredible. Each of them was amazingly kind and helpful. They really made the stay extra special.

Great Moroccan Riad with lots of charm
Hotel is decorated with Moroccan flair and charm. The gentleman that checked us in was super friendly and helpful. At check-in, they served Moroccan mint tea with sweets. Room is spacious for our family of four. We had dinner in the hotel and it was abundant and delicious. The staff was great, friendly and sociable. Breakfast was more than expected and served in the beautiful room. Overall, we were very please with the hotel. It’s location is a bit confusion when you enter the Medina but just pay someone a few Euro to bring you to the Riad.

Cosy riad and friendly staff
It is wonderful riad that I stayed in Fez. The riad like an art piece, very beautiful. The room is big , clean, silent and very cosy. I enjoyed the sunset at the terrace. I love the breakfast, very tasty. The staff service is good. Especially a staff called Anas, he is helpful, gentle and I had a good impression on his friendly smile, he made me just like stay at home. He was aggressive to help us when we were facing some problem , and explained very detailed to make sure we understand. So thanks for him a lot.

Fair 4.0
Overpriced, over promised, under delivered.
The riad is stunning but is located at the wrong end of the medina for access to restaurants etc and is down several, dark, winding alleyways which are daunting at night. The staff, especially the ‘boss’ are rude, surly and unhelpful which is a shame as the interior of the riad is beautiful and it could be an oasis if the staff were friendly and helpful. I won’t be staying there on my next visit.
