Location in Fes : Perfect. This Dar is an authentic beautiful Dar located in the middle of the old Medina. It was in a calm street, but near of all the action. We visited everything we wanted to see by walking distance from the hotel. Experience : Awesome. The family who lives and run the Dar are lovely. They were... More

Had a great stay in this lovely riad! Decor in the courtyard and room felt very authentic. Location is central in the medina- once you find it, it is not too hard to get your bearings and find your way to the main attractions. Hostess was friendly & welcoming. Downsides to consider if you are planning a longer stay: no... More

I was there a few months ago and I'm still talking about it to my friends. The place is stunning. From what I have seen, the rooms are all beautiful.

This Dar has been recently restored with taste. It's very well located in between Talaa Sagira and Talaa Kebira, two of the main axes in Fès medina, not far from beautiful Blue gate.

What a great place. Great, hospitable and very helpful family. A wonderfully maintained traditional house. We felt transported to another world. The food is great. Eating in is definitely recommended. All the help in the world is on offer to make the experience enjoyable and to help you explore the region around Fes too. Can't recommend it enough.

This beautiful little gem is a delight! It's owned by a charming Belgian family who have lived in Morocco for over a decade. The Riad itself is clearly a labour of love and they spent five years restoring the building to perfection, paying attention to even the smallest of details. It is scrupulously clean and absolutely stunning, decorated tastefully and... More
