Fes, Fes-Boulemane Region
Dar Mystere is an affordable option for independent travellers, whether as couples or small parties, to experience Moroccan life 'behind closed doors' in the mysterious ancient medina of Fez.

The cost covers the exclusive use of the house and will appeal to guests who prefer privacy and value their own space. Dar Mystere has been renovated and restored to offer modern comforts while retaining the original architectural Moroccan style.

The excellent location of Dar Mystere offers easy access to numerous local amenities such as restaurants and bazaars. Set in a quiet cul-de-sac alley in an area popular with international visitors, it provides the ideal base for exploration of the medina and the wonders of Fez.

I think it is incredible that we got to stay in a dar built in 1498. This is one of the most unique accommodations I've had. Instead of renting one room, we had the entire place for ourselves, which felt like a complete luxury. The tile work inside is amazing, but the material lends itself to cooling the space, which...

We stayed in Dar Mystere for 4 nights. This Riad is situated in the centre of the Medina in a side street. So no hard noise from the Medina itself. There are 3 bedrooms with 7 beds in total. The roof terrace is lovely with a nice view. The owner is very helpful and can arrange some day trips also....

Thank you for the review Maurice, we are very pleased you enjoyed your time at Dar Mystere and would love to have you back in Fez in the future.
