Beautiful luxury hotel, located next to the medina Great views all around, amazing traditional decor at every corner, beautiful manicured gardens, a true oasis in Fez, a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the medina next door and city outside. Our room balcony had views to the garden/pool and hills and it was spectacular at night. The medina...

The Palais Jamai is a legend that's losing its charm. Yes, you start your stay by walking into a beautiful tile-decorated lobby and sit down to mint tea, but our premier room showed signs of disrepair. One of the armchairs was missing finials, the other had a rickety leg, the tub handle came off in my hand, a couple of...

If you decide to stay at hotel Jamai which is close to the Medina. Do not try to walk to the Medina from the back side of it as the hotel staff recommended to do. I starting walking and a nice gentleman approached me and asked me to take a taxi to the old Medina instead of taking that 15...

This hotel is the grande dame of Fes hotels and an icon in hotel history: A beautiful old-world grand hotel with a terrific garden and pool. Located above the old medina with breathtaking views of the city. The building and interior exuded history, however a little worn and faded. Room was good size and had a balcony towards the garden...
