Travellers' Choice
Dar Hafsa is a traditional 19th century Morocccan home. Recently renovated, the house is a beautiful example of fine Moroccan craftsmanship. The ornate tile work and painted doors reflect the best in cultural design. An open floor plan with multiple indoor balconies gives the house a cozy feeling, but not at the expense of privacy. A roof-top terrace offers an expansive view of the Fes Medina and the Riff Mountains.This lovely accommodation is seven minutes from the Blue Gate (Bab Bouljoud), and a simple right-hand turn from the main street (derb sidi safi souiket ben safi talaa sghira) and souk. It is situated on a quiet, clean byway. Those looking for a more authentic Fes stay will find themselves a reasonable distance from hustle and bustle of the shopping and trade.You will feel welcome at Dar Hafsa by the family who manages the guest house, Mariam and Aziz and their parents. They are friendly and generous. English, French, and Arabic languages are spoken well, along with some Spanish and German. Your comfort and satisfaction is assured, and the family can share their local knowledge to enrich your stay.

This riad had an excellent ranking on Trip Advisor and we agree that this beautiful traditional Moroccan home will not disappoint for a few nights' stay in Fez. The location is good. It's quiet at night, clean, and has fast internet. There are many beautiful riads and hotels in Morocco yet this one stands out because of the owners who really care about their guests. We were stuck in Morocco (Fez) due to the border closing on account of the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-March 2020. Our flight was cancelled a couple times and we had no clue how long we'd have to stay in Morocco before being able to secure a flight out. We were the only guests of the Dar Hafsa. Fez shut down, with the airport, hotels, restaurants, tourists sights, and markets closing. Mr. Abdul Karim (the riad owner) allowed us to stay at the riad as long as we needed to. He kept the riad running for us so that we had our daily cleaning and our breakfast made. In the evenings, Mr. Abdul arranged so that we'd have a traditional dinner prepared by his wife. He also visited frequently to see if we needed anything. We felt like we were friends with Mr. Abdul rather than his riad guests. We spent some extra days in Fez before we were able to catch a flight to London and then Toronto. We plan on going back one day just to visit Mr. Abdul and thank him once again for being a great host and person.

First of all BIG thanks to Miriam. She really took care of us like of her own family members. I happens to catch a cold and she run for me to the pharmacy, served some hot tea and treated with homemade sweets. The rooms are extremely clean, delicious breakfasts. Meeting at the airport. Thank you so much!

We stayed at the riad for 3 nights. Mr. Abdul came to join us at the Medina gate at our arrival to show us the way. He and the staff were very friendly. He helped us to organise guided tour at the Medina and this was great to know more about the people and culture. During the guided tour we were not bothered by vendors, at exception of the carpet shop visit. The room was small, but clean and comfortable and breakfast is good. We love our staying and we recommend this riad.

We stayed at Dar Hafsa for 3 nights. The owner Abdol Karim was very kind and helpful and organised all our tours for us, and was able to give recommendations for restaurants and things to do during our time. He organised a extensive medina tour with our own private guide (Redoin) which was interesting and covered all the main spots of the Medina. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff are all very friendly. Highly recommend
