Riad Tayba
Ranked #80 of 225 Fes B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 January 2017

I have a mixed opinion about Riad Tayba. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, especially Leila. They organise pick up from the train station, they cook dinner on demand and they can provide a guide for the day. The building is the classic riad, beautiful buildings often tucked in silent side streets in the medina of moroccan cities. Unassuming from outside, they are usually stunning inside, with a refreshing inner courtyard and tasteful decorations. Riad Tayba in this league. However, the rooms are very small and the one where I was had a terrible smell of sewage. It was barely acceptable. A little use of deodorant might have helped a lot and I am surprised that the staff never thought of this. Most rooms face the outside small street rather than the courtyard, and, being the riad nearly at the end of a cul-de-sac, the nights are very quiet and silent, with the exception of the odd cats fight (they can be very, very loud!). The position in the city is very good, very close to one of the main thoroughfares of Fes and to the "Blue gate" but off the beaten path. One can quickly learn how to get back home at night!

Room Tip: Make sure that the sewage problem was fixed

You will love this Riad, only a few rooms, but all lovely and the lobby or central courtyard is amazing. Breakfast is served in a cozy alcove just off the lobby. Rooftop deck contains a very small pool and a lovely spot for resting or meditating. Anouar as manager will accommodate your every need. He is also a licensed guide, lives in Fes, and can accompany you to all the wonderful treasures Fes has to offer. If you need a driver, ask for his friend, licensed guide and driver as well, Idriss. We stayed 4 days and could have happily spent more.

One step through the door of this humble establishment and you'll be charmed by its unexpected calm. It's close to the Bab Boujloud gate of the Medina, but you'll need a hand to get to it the first time. Once you get your bearings you're fine. Very polite and professional staff and more than satisfactory honest comfort. I slept really well actually. Breakfast served at the time of your choice just off the central yard of the Riad. Excellent value for nightly rate and would completely recommend the Tayba! Shukran!

Riad Taba was for me traditional Morocco accommodation. Riad is in the middle of old city( in medina). We spent here two beautiful night. We had two rooms. Idrissides Twin Room is very small but very cute room.Suite Merinides room is beautiful romantic room with private terrace on the top of the hotel. Hotel arranged transportation from the airport. Breakfast was super moroccan experience. Delicious moroccan mint tea and delicious coffe. Staff was very helpful. The only thing that disappointed us was at that time the unopened pool. Thank you for this time.

Room Tip: Suite Merinides was the best

Very nice Riad, clean, charming and pleasant staff. Very close from the main door and commodities

Beware of the small room which overlook the public path - It can be very noisy at night. They changed us after one night (it was Ramadan ..) to a much better suite. We did appreciate !

Breakfast is also very nice : pancake with different type of jam. Orange juice, Green tea or coffee.
