The Dar Bensouda can be difficult to locate within the winding streets (as with all things in the Medina). Make sure you call the property beforehand so they can send a guide to meet you at one of the entrances - I'm sure they'd be happy to do so!

The Riad was a beautiful property situated in the heart of the Medina, tastefully decorated with a Moroccan flair. The rooms were spacious, luxurious, and clean. The pool and sun beds were also a lovely respite from the Moroccan heat.

The food served at the Riad was good value for money in comparison with the other places to eat in Fes. We would especially recommend the stuffed squid tagine (even if you've gotten really sick of tagines)!

The staff in the Riad were really the highlight of our stay in Fes. The concierge was exceptional, going out of his way to make sure our whole trip went smoothly. He arranged for our meals both within and outside of the Riad, making sure there was a guide to take us there and back (because you will definitely get lost or harassed if you try and make your own way through the Medina). He even arranged for someone to purchase our bus tickets to our next destination for us, from the station, to spare us the trip.

All in all, our stay at Dar Bensouda was fantastic, and would highly recommend this to anyone looking to travel to Fes. The Medina can be physically, emotionally and mentally draining, but Dar Bensouda was our oasis, and allowed us to truly enjoy Fes.

Lively restored Imam’s old residence with nice rooms, courtyards and terraces. Excellent service from on site Manager (Hasan).
Food was goodish but not great.
Pool was very pleasant after a day exploring in the heat.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Riad Dar Bensouda. At the tail-end of our action packed trip through Morocco, this place was an amazing place to unwind.

The whole property is stunning - the architecture is intricate and unique. We enjoyed the pool and various lounge areas, including the rooftop patio.

Our room was huge, will vaulted ceilings and a second floor bathroom and changing area. Immaculately clean and accented with more modern furniture, the design is very well balanced.

The location is right in the midst of the hustle and bustle of old Fes, perfect for those wanting to be immersed in the action- however everything is calm and quiet once you enter Riad Dar Bensouda. If we come back to Fes, I’ll book here without thinking twice. Highly recommend.

We stayed there with a friend in April. She had a problem with the surroundings but my other friend and I did not have any problems. I was very happy with the stay at Riad Dar Bensouda. The Medina neighborhood is a UNESCO Heritage site and a great experience. The staff was incredibly helpful and kind. The house has beautiful archietectural details and our suite was very welcoming and restful. I fell in love with my room and the beautiful tall doors leading out to an inner courtyard, the comfy room, the beautiful bathroom. I would definitely stay there again and would not change my experience for anything.
