Lovely place in great location with comfortable rooms. However I felt the staff were not as friendly as some of the other riads I had stayed in and it was very much geared towards the tourist rather than the traveller in terms of offers to organise trips (which I felt were overpriced).

My friend and I stayed 5 nights in this very beautiful historic Riad in Fez. Everything there is pure delight from the breakfasts on the roof terrace to the wonderful candlelit evening meals around the tinkling fountain in the courtyard. The staff are exceptional and Miriam, the multi-lingual manager, was always at hand to help us with our sight-seeing plans... More

This riad just a block or so outside the medina gates and is most beautiful and tastefully decordated. The hostess, Miriam is gracious and never seems to be imposed by guest requests. I would recommend staying at this riad. Having travelled Morocco by car and seeing many cities, I would recommend at least two full days in Fez, as this... More

My wife and I stayed in this stunning riad in September and absolutely loved it. We arrived a day late and they didn't charge us for the missed night. The food is great, try the lamb tagine and the chicken pastry thing, I forgot the name. The location is right in the medina just a short stroll from the souks.... More

Riad Dar Guennoun is a beautiful guest house in Fes. The home, which had been in the family for generations, was recently refurbished and redecorated in quintessential Moroccan style. The courtyard has such a beautiful atmosphere, especially in the evenings when the candles are lit, and wifi! Abdul and Miriam are charming and attentive proprietors who were willing to help...

Exquisite food, charming décor and an attention to detail and customer service are the hallmarks of Riad Dar Guennoun, located on the upper edge of the Fez medina. Owner and proprietors Abdul and his charming daughter Miriam attend to every guest, down to a rosewater hand rinse as we arrived. The rooms are delightfully decorated in the style of Morocco....

Myself and a friend stayed here for 1 night near the beginning of August. Each of our rooms were very comfortable - nice shower, very nice decor - superb! We especially liked the interior decor of the riad and the roof terrace! We also found the host friendly and welcoming. We would recommend this riad if staying in Fes.

This is a very nice riad in the Fes medina and conveniently located. The owner, Abdoul, and his daughter Meriam are excellent hosts that not only welcomed us warmly, but were also very helpful and caring when my wife had a touch of the flu.
