The owners could't have been more helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we had a great sty in Fez. The hotel is fantastic a real taste of Morocco. Situated just inside the medina the location is perfect as is the hotel

Sitting on the terrace looking out over the medina at breakfast or in the evening was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. Khalid and Amina who own the hotel are such lovely accommodating people they make you feel as if you have been invited to their home. It's very relaxed and a wonderful place to recover from... More

We loved this riad. It was cozy and had many wonderful extras. We would come here again and recommend it. It fit perfectly into our tour with Soulfull Travel Adventures. It was a relaxing oasis after a wonderful day exploring.

I think that my title is a fairly accurate base description of this hotel. However, I think that there is a lot of room for improvement here. We arrived at the Riad after almost 10 hours of travel (plane, train and automobile). I had emailed to advise of my arrival time, but evidently there is no one that is keeping... More

The lamb tagine was amazingly tender and delicious. After the lamb, the chicken tagine was not as tasty as it felt overcooked. The 2 Moroccan musicians were friendly and helped along with our birthday celebration even though we couldn't communicate in words. The ambiance was authentic and inviting. Overall a good experience.

Hello , Thank you for appreciating the ambience and dinner except the chicken was overcooked, you could cancel out there and ask for another. I will think of your complaint to properly present the next time. Thank you More
