As soon as you cross the threshold of this incredible property, you will access a magnificent architectural gem. Thanks to the patience of Abdellatif Ait Ben Abdallah, a personality known for the numerous Moroccan heritage saving actions in the Media of Marrakech, this luxurious 16th century Fez dwelling has finally found its original soul and revived. Every detail, simple or complex, the proportions harmony, the magic of the colors, and the extraordinary combination of the ancient zellij, the stucco, and the carved woods shows the incredible elegance and the highly refined taste of its previous owner, the Bensouda Saint. Now accessible to all, Dar Bensouda is the ideal place for a memorable experience. The 18 rooms and suites with majestic doors, carved and painted wood ceilings, and zellij floors, all have private bathrooms for your convenience. To enjoy and gather with your family or friends, Dar Bensouda has several common areas as well. The large living room with a fireplace, the vaste rooftop terrace with astonishing panoramic views of the entire Medina, the restaurant where we serve a traditional and refined Moroccan cuisine, and last but not least, the beautiful seperate pool patio to refresh yourselves at all times. A private Hammam and Spa are also available for your convenience. What's nearby Karaouiyne 0.4 km Medersa Bouanania 0.6 km Batha Square 0.7 km Bab Bou Jeloud Fes 0.7 km Royal Palace Fes 1.9 km

i had an incredibly amazing stay. The staff is just on top. Service, rooms, reception cleaning. Aziz, who comes looking for you and brings you back in this labyrinth, passing by Mamadou with little care, and Yassine who does not hesitate to share his large knowledge on the old medina of Fes This house full of history and beauty deserves to be known and recognized. and i will definitely plan to visit the riad again and again

What an incredible experience! We arrived to the Riad unassuming of the majestic decor within the alleys of the Fes medina. We were welcomed with tea and yummy biscuits and then a grand tour of the incredible property by our delightful host Yaseen. We were treated like the royalty who once lived there and were offered a late dinner due to the fact that we were too exhausted to venture out to find a restaurant elsewhere. Yaseen graciously offered us his best rooms due to the fact that the riad was basically empty. With no tourists around, we were able to take advantage of the most glorious rooms in the riad. The roof top terrace and pool were a sight for sore eyes and the hamam experience was nice too. Our only regret was not staying here longer. Thank you to the staff and a special thanks to Yaseen for truly making our experience extra memorable.
