This riad is very well situated, just 5 minutes walking from the Blue Gate. Rooms are not very big but enough for a double bed and private toilet. Breakfast is simply amazing! I had some issues with my booking, but they took me to a different and better riad, so worthy contacting them by email before going.

In addition to all of the good things said in other reviews (it's a great spot - no need to re-state it), this place has what I found to be the ideal location in the medina. It's close to the blue gate, so you have easy access to taxis, etc, and it's positioned between the 2 main roads in the...

And it wasn't just any breakfast, it was a table full of fruits, coffee, tea, breads, spreads and various other Moroccan foods. Steven was most helpful with...

experience a different culture from the comfort of this riad. In the medina you are a short walk away from all the sights that scare or interest you. Great position, friendly,hands on owner,not luxurious but if you want all that go to the Hilton.

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at this wonderful guest house situated within an easy walk of Bab Boujaloud and the local restaurants. Mohamed the manager speaks very good English and is a gold mine of useful information on where to go in the medina. The owner, Steve, is a lovely chap and also a great source of local knowledge for...

Steve the owner, is an expat who knows exactly what travellers need. Above all things honesty. He got a reliable driver to pick me up from train station. He explained clearly how to find your way around the old city in Fez. He told of 2 restaurants that do not overcharge and give good quality food. The beds are very...

We found it by chance and it was a great surprise for us. We planned to stay one night, and ended up staying three. The breakfast is great, the riad very clean and quiet, the staff is very helpful, and Steve is a great host. Whithin that budget, we absolutly recommend it.

“The rooms are a bit tight for three (they add a mattress on the floor), for two are more than good. We travel during Ramadan, which is why the quality of the sleep is influenced by the different pace of life that lead the Muslims during that period, at the same time very interesting.”
