I stayed here in early 2010 (I've just joined TripAdvisor, so I'm catching up!) with my husband. The staff were incredibly lovely and the rooms were clean and tidy. What I loved was how quiet the place was - even though there were many guests, I couldn't hear anyone - really peaceful. Also, good value for money, and very close...

I have recently travel to Morocco with family and friends and we have stayed in Dar Bouanania riad. It is true that the central courtyard of the house looks pretty good, but the rooms are not the best. We must accept that the price is cheap, but paying the same in other cities in Morocco we had more quality and...

We had a great 4 days in Fez based at Dar Bouanania. The hostel was beautiful and very atmospheric and we appreciated really feeling like we were in Morocco! It was comfortable and has a great roof terrace to hang out on. The only downsides were that it was quite cold and damp and the bathrooms were pretty low quality....

This hotel was very comfrotable and they were able to give us a room for four people for a reasonable price. As others have mentioned, the bathrooms are pretty stinky but otherwise the rooms were clean and comfortable. No rooftop pool or rooftop dining area, but it was comfortable and a good value with an excellent location and nice staff.

There is a difference between a riad and a dar. Both are traditional Moroccon houses, but the riads have a real open air patio or courtyard. Dar Bouanania has a small patio but it's not open air (there is a kind of glassroof covering it on the highest floor), is more the common room between the 3 rooms on the...

This riad was a disappointment. It has a very pretty interior courtyard (as do many riads in Morocco), but the rooms were dank, dark, and smelled horribly mildewy. They were also very noisy and smokey at night, due to people sitting in the common courtyard area talking and smoking. The beds were saggy, the furniture broken, and I could not...

The room was very simple but equiped with TV (few channels, none in english) and electric (not very powerful) heater. it had a window into the court which could be closed with blides....

On the whole, this is a clean, quiet place where you can get away from the noise of the Fes medina and catch a solid night's sleep. Beyond that, many little things went wrong for us. From the first need to change the reservations, the staff jacked the price on us. Feeling like the Dar staff were trying to milk...

Quiet and peaceful but close to the main areas. Friendly, helpful staff and spotlessly clean. Due to booking mix up we were given an ensuite room for 3 nights for the original price of 300 dhr. Their prices seem lower than quoted in Lonely Planet meaning it is very good value and also usually booked up so get there early...
