The riad is in a good location, especially if you can navigate the medina. The rooms give you an authentic feel and the rooftop terrace is wonderful. Said is so helpful in everything that we asked. He was so patient and understanding. He even offered to have someone take us to where we wanted to visit and then pick us...

I stayed at Dar Bensouda with a friend a couple of years ago and we had a wonderful experience. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the food is delicious, and they can connect you with many different services or experiences while there! On arriving in Fes, we found that we had not made our travel arrangements as soundly as...

This is the type of property that you come to Morocco to experience. I’m a bit nervous writing this review, as I don’t want to be booked in perpetuity thereby preventing me from staying again. However, they do deserve the praise. Premier personalized service, head and shoulders above other places (though the standard in Morocco is quite high). We received...

We loved the staff here! This gorgeous restoration of the former Iman Bensouda has a beautiful courtyard complete with pool (too cold to use in December) and cozy, warm dining room.
