Traveling to Fès, Morocco's oldest city, is a treat in itself but staying at Dar Bensouda makes the trip all the more special. It is one of the most beautiful Riads I have ever been in, the tile details, the wood frames, everything inside is simply photogenic. Staying at a traditional place like this makes the travel so much more intimate and magical!
The rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean and feel so luxurious. The pool area is great for beating the Moroccan heat and unwinding after walking around the Medina, also the terrace is a must for sunsets!
The food here was delicious! If you come in June/July ask for the okra tajine (sooo good!) and in the morning be sure to try the traditional cheese they make in house, goes great with the moroccan bread and mint tea!
The staff here is super friendly and will make your stay so smooth by arranging anything you need, for us, they arranged a half-day trip to Volubilis (roman ruins) and concert tickets for the Fès World Sacred Music Festival, plus they always had a walking guide to help us found our way around the Medina.More
