Best hotel on our trip in Morocco, the staff were so helpful and kind in particular Muhammad, there was no task too difficult. The accommodation is clean and beautiful. We are in both nights and the food was superb. This would be my first stop on my trip back to Fes. Highly recommended.

First, do NOT confuse this with a riad with a similar name - Riad Dar Yacouta 4 Derb Dalia,Quartier Ben Saleh - which has some very bad reviews. I suspect any bad reviews for El Yacout were for Yacouta. I stayed at El Yacout with a group of 14 photographers (half Canadians, half Americans) in May. The service was personable...

From the moment we stepped through the large wooden entrance to Riad el Yacout we knew we were in an extraordinary place. This riad is over 700 years old and beautifully restored with mosaics to die for. The staff and manager (Mohammed) are incredibly friendly and speak English very well. We were upgraded to a suite that had us feeling...

Thanks to the friendly and welcoming staff (Mohammad, Iman and many others) that made our stay at this riad a wonderful experience. We travelled as a couple with a young toddler and the staff went out of there way to make us feel at home. The riad is lucky to have such genuine, caring people working here. The riad itself...

We spent a wonderful 4 nights in the beautifully decorated Riad el Yacout. The rooms are comfortable and the entire riad has a fantastic ambience. The chef was happy to accommodate a gluten free diet and every meal was delicious. The riad is well located within walking distance of the medina. Our every need was accommodated for by Mohammad, Hadija...

Thanks to Khadija, Imam, Abdul, Mohammed, and all the staff that made our stay at Riad El Yacout so enjoyable. It became our home and our refuge while in Fes.

Excellent staff and beautiful riad with exceptional rooms, the manager Mohammed took care of all our needs. The food is very good, and the riad has a relaxed and quiet atmosphere. The location is also very good, as it's close the blue gate - it's also right in the Medina.

You would never guess the beauty of this place behind the alley ways to get to the front entrance. Upon entering you will be amazed at how gorgeous this riad is. The staff, the service, the food, is impeccable. You will never leave from a meal hungry...soooo much food!! The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. The manager Mohammed is exceptional....

I highly recommend a stay at Riad El Yacout. The place is simply beautiful and the staff, namely Mohammed (the manager) are incredible. Additionally, this riad is centrally located within Fes (within walking distance to the Medina). I enjoyed every minute of my stay both here at Yacout but also within Fes. I cannot wait to come back.
