Absolutely highly recommend this Riad. The hostess and her staff are extremely accommodating, and the food was the best we had in our 10 day travels through Morocco. Each room is decorated very charming, especially the Juliette (where my girlfriend and I stayed). Skip the nearby Turkish bath.

This has to have been one of my best experiences of travelling on my own. The Riad itself is stunning, and the location was perfect - in the medina, but fairly easy to find - I stayed in Suite Miriam which was beautiful, and the food was truly wonderful, I didn't want to eat anywhere else. But for me the... More

Furnished like a little bit of the 1001 nights. Comfortable; great food for breakfast & you can get a delicious meal there if you don't want to go out to eat. Juliet was very helpful with suggestions for things to do in Fez. She also put us in touch with a good guide to the Fez medina. We met Driss... More

My boyfriend and I spent in this Riad three days last September: enough time to fell in love with both the city and the Riad. We enjoyed so much the quietness of this place, the location, the kindness of the staff, the breakfast. It is a really typical Moroccan Riad, the rooms are decorated with a particular attention to the... More

My daughter and I had the best experience here in Fes and were so well taken care of by Juliette. She went over and above to meet our needs and I was thankful to find her.

We got dropped off of the street off of Bab el Jadid by our tour guide. But the Riad had sent someone to take us to the Riad through the car free alley ways of the old medina of Fez. All the while we were wondering where and how this is going to end up. They open the door and... More

Where to start?? The riad, a beautiful example of Moroccan culture and style is situated just inside the medina so you won't get lost finding it if you are driving in.

We spent four nights in Fes and were so happy to have spent them here. We were in Room Sarah, which is the smallest room in the Riad. The room was small, as to be expected, but not TOO small.
