Reviewed 20 October 2017

Stayed here for 3 nights while touring Morocco. Old building in Medina of Fes. This Riad is a combination of many buildings which have Ben joined together. Entire building is tiled in typical Moroccan style. Breakfast is included. You ca.n choose from three dining areas for all meals. Try the Moroccan soup which is wonderful.

Room Tip: Only saw two rooms.

We loved the hotel and our room which was large and very spacious. There are lots of different terraces to sit at and have a drink in the evening which is important as there is not anything close by that you can walk to. There is a pool in the hotel but it is really just to cool down in as it is too small to really swim in it.

Access to the hotel is up a small alleyway but don't let this put you off as there are porters to help with the baggage if you don't feel like carrying it yourself.

We ate at the restaurant on one of the nights we stayed and the meals were very ordinary although the setting is lovely. I probably would advise getting out and going to a restaurant.

Staff were very friendly and the room with its double poster bed and stained glass windows was great. Overall we were very happy with our choice and would recommend this hotel.

La Madison Bleue is a lovely place to stay in Fes--both of them.

Confused? We were too when we arrived. There is a Maison Bleue Hotel and Maison Bleue Riad. They are affiliated but in different locations. It was an issue when we arrived because we were initially taken to the wrong site by our taxi. Once that was sorted, the bigger issue was learning the riad does not have a fitness room or pool, as promised on the website. The hotel has both and guests of the riad have access. The only challenge is getting from the riad to the hotel through the tangled alleys of the medina where 500 metres can get you lost for two hours.

After the initial frustration, we settled in to the room. The building is beautiful, traditional Moroccan design. The rooms are large and there are tubs for soaking. The service is good and location relatively easy to access because it is near a landmark if the medina, the blue gate.

The riad seems to be well known for its restaurant. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner including a chicken tajine, couscous royals and an orange cream dessert that was too large for two people but we finished every rich bit of it. Dinner service was excellent and the live musicians played beautifully.

The hotel may have more amenities on site but the riad has a better location. With those factors in mind, make a choice between two good options.

PS There are many stairs in narrow cases. If mobility is an issue, this may not be a good choice at all.

This is a lovely traditional Moroccan restaurant with nice atmosphere. During dinner there were musicians and dancers providing entertainment but it was not intrusive. The menu is a set three course menu with the traditional assortment of salads, olives and bread to start, you choose your main course and then there are two desserts, delicious sweet juicy sliced orange and large layered crispy pancakes covered in cream and orange zest which was unusual and yummy.

We stayed in La Maison Bleue in early January (my husband, myself and my adult daughter). I can't tell you how wonderful this hotel is. It is a beautiful, historic Riad. Our room was absolutely beautiful. The spa and gym areas were well outfitted. The restaurant was excellent, and served both Moroccan and western specialties. .The service was outstanding from start to finish. I can only say, go for a stay and treat yourself. We can't wait to go back to beautiful Fes and a Maison Bleue.
