Travellers' Choice
Beautiful 17th century building, located in the andalous quarter of the medina of Fez, Karawan Riad offers 7 suites decorated with attention to every detail. This will never stop amazing you during all your stay. Location is convenient: in a tranquil corner of the medina, yet very easy to reach. Each room is unique, with original antique furnitures, rugs and artwork pieces, wisely blended with modern facilities. The common lounges (library and tea room) offer a great place to rest after a day of walking in the medina. The young local Chef Outhmane Choumi restaurant offers an affordable Bistro menu for lunch and more clever twist meals for dinner. There is also an traditionnal hammam (moist heat and traditionnal ritual ) and massage sessions can be booked.

This spectacular riad was our first taste of Morocco. The facility was stunning and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. The rooftop views were beautiful especially at sunset. The abundant delicious breakfast was often my favorite of the day!! Highly recommend!!

Karawan Riad is in the heart of the Medina. It truly is an oasis from the bustle of the old city. It was peaceful and elegant. The staff was more that polite and well trained. This Riad is beautiful and recently rennovated with an gorgeous interior courtyard, a beautiful library and amazing rooftop that is exquisit in the morning or evening. My bedroom was much more than I expected. I always felt safe. Their touring advice was top notch. I am so greatful for my stay with them as they made the Fez part of my trip truly a treasured time. Thank you to all the staff at Karawan Riad.

Stayed here for a short stay with a large group in July. We had initially booked for 3 nights but could only stay for 2 because of a change in our plans. We booked 4 rooms and basically had the entire 2nd floor to ourselves. Let me start out by saying that we were blown away by this hotel. The hotel went out of it's way to make us feel comfortable. We're booked the rooms through booking.com. Rooms : clean , well decorated and modern. There is no central AC but there are wall units in every room. The rooms are huge and we were spoiled. Breakfast: delicious and served like we were part of their family. I felt like I was at home. Facilities:. The hotel is a Riad which is actually an old home that had been converted into a hotel. Everything is beautiful and well maintained. Service:. What I was truly impressed by is the service. These guys treated us like family and it was not unnoticed. Sidi Usman, Nuzha and two others who I am forgetting babes all went out of there way. Sidi Usman in particular helped me to arrange covid testing for our group and followed up on the results diligently. He clearly went above and beyond. Do not look and further. This gem is THE place to stay in Fez.
