This was my first experience staying in a Moroccan riad and what a pleasant one it was. The riad is on the edge of the Fes Medina and is a short walk from the fountain where buses drop their passengers. There are porters, if you need one, all to ready to give you a hand for a fee. As with...

This riad has the most stunning courtyard with a central fountain, beautiful mosaics and delicate plaster work. Our rooms off the main courtyard were spacious and beautifully presented. Breakfast was huge, with pastries, pancakes, eggs, fruit and more, and varied each day. The staff was friendly and attentive. What more could you ask for. There were no negatives at all.
