The Fes medina, or old, walled city, contains countless riads--what were once private houses, hidden behind walls and accessed through narrow, winding alleyways, converted into something between B & Bs and boutique hotels. The medina is a madhouse of donkeys and throngs of pedestrians (no cars allowed), the cobbled "streets" lined with thousands of vendors of everything from cheap knick-knacks...

Is a dream come true place. Quite and pretty central in the Medina. Their restaurant is fantastic, The Ruin Garden, their bread making class are very fun! I took the class and they even tough us how to make cous cous from scratch. We really laugh a lot. I had a couple of dinners which were fantastic.

The riad is a beautiful place. Nicely decorated, heated, and a beautiful garden. The view at the top is astonishing. You can contemplate the whole city, Atlas mountains, etc. They brought us a wonderful breakfast there. Fresh fruits salad, homemade yogurt, homemade bread, msammen and beghir (Moroccan pancakes) bigger than ever. The people warmly welcome you and pay attention to...

What a refuge in the heart of the medina! We loved every moment staying at this lovely riad. Friendly staff (we love Uthman, Mustafa, Mohammed and Fatima) The ruined garden straight out of a Bowles novel. 5 star experience in Fes.

Riad Idrissy is a gem located in the old medina in Fes. This was one of our splurges in Morroco when we opted for one of the larger suites. It's a lovely inside with a very comfortable bed. The decor is great and does have a lot of modern amenities. There's a restaurant attached (the Ruined Garden) which is very...

We spent three nights in Riad Idrissy and had a fantastic stay. In the heart of the Medina and thus easy access to the Medina. Hospitality and service of all staff and people is outstanding!

Spent four nights here while we were in Fes. This place is simply wonderful. Our room was on the ground floor but it wasn't noisy - we slept well every night. There are lovely gardens to sit in and there is also a terrace. The breakfasts are really tasty too. In addition all the people who work there are so...

Can't say enough good things--awesome and super unique rooms, large, cool garden and terrace, good food and drink, and most importantly amazing people. Otman, Fatima, everyone else at Idrissy bent over backwards to ensure our stay was enjoyable. They helped us with anything we needed. I hope they visit my home town and I can return the favor. Highly recommend...

Generous portions of food - which is much appreciated. The breakfast is excellent - never ever change it - as that's your USP! The women are friendly and helpful - especially in the kitchens. I love it when they employ local women - they also work quite hard too and go the extra mile. We were in the top bedroom...

Upon arrival I was blown away by the beauty of the riad and it's garden. We received a warm welcome and this calm and generous hospitality continued to a humbling standard throughout our stay. The interiors and terraces are spectacular, as is the daily breakfast and food at the Ruined Garden restaurant. Would recommend to anyone.
