We stayed at Riad Boujloud for two nights around the middle of April, and it was absolutely wonderful--the best of the three riads we stayed in Morocco (the two others were in Marrakech). Vincent, one of the owners, came to meet us at Bab Boujloud (a gate to the medina), showed us where to park, and got us a porter to get our luggage. We had pre-arranged to have dinner at the riad--highly recommended; it was delicious (a soup, a Moroccan salad, chicken tajine, and lemon tart). Breakfasts were also very good (fresh fruit, Moroccan pancakes, bread, preserves, juice, coffee, mint tea)--and they were served at the rooftop terrace, which has wonderful views towards the hills surrounding Fes. The riad is a beautiful old house with original intricate mosaics on the walls and the floor; it has been beautifully restored by Vincent and Christophe. Our bedroom and bathroom were tastefully decorated with antiques and Moroccan textiles. Although the riad is just between the two thoroughfares of the medina, it is quiet, partly because the courtyard itself has been covered with a skylight. (We slept very well.).
I can't say enough how helpful Vincent and Christophe were. We wanted to buy a carpet, and Vincent took us to just the right place. We had to adjust our luggage allowance with Ryanair to take the carpet with us, and Christophe re-printed our boarding passes. They also told us about a wonderful restaurant in the Andalusian quarter (I think that's correct ...), run by a family in their home.--It was the best and most memorable meal we had in the week we spent in Morocco. And when we were planning our drive back to Marrakech, Vincent and Christophe showed us an alternative route and suggested places worth visiting along the way.--I would like to go back to Fes and stay at Riad Boujloud again!
