Great Service in Restored Mansion

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 5, 2013

This Riad (bed and breakfast) is in an elegant converted merchant's home near Seffarine Square. The old building is beautiful, and the service provided by a young and enthusiastic staff is as good as one could find anywhere. All speak perfect English, and I assume French as well. The owners, a Norwegian and Iraqi couple have lavished great care on restoration of architectural details. The place is hard to find, but everywhere in the Fes Medina is hard to find (!), and the staff will come to a nearby square to collect you. The place has quite a reputation, and people from all over the world were there at the time of our visit. I did encounter two problems. The dinners served in the evening were expensive, so we only ate there one night. We had expected something special, but were disappointed. The food was not as good as what we ate at local family restaurants for about half the price. The good news is that staff were very helpful in recommending these restaurants, and the restaurants will send someone to pick you up. Breakfast at the Riad, on the other hand, was bounteous and tasty, even if a bit heavy on the carbohydrates. Second, I had concerns about security. The rooms can be locked by a bar from the inside but have no locks. The door to the street is locked, but the staff seems to buzz in anyone who sounds like a guest, and it is then possible to enter without much scrutiny.

Unique Quality: Beautifully restored and elegant

Directions: near Seffarin Sq.

Best Dinner We Had In Morocco

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 2, 2006

Unique Quality: On our first day, our host suggested that we join him and his lovely Norwegian wife for dinner, we promptly agreed and never regretted that!

As if I haven't used enough superlatives about this place, that was by far the best dinner we had on our trip - and that just for 100 Dirham per head! Not your run-off-the-mill Moroccan dinner of couscous and tajine, but more of generally Arabic fare with a nouvelle cuisine twist -- all freshly cooked under the host's guidance and served in their open-air dining room.

On top of that we wound up having dinner with the the whole family and a few other guests - something no money can buy in a restaurant!

(Just noticed my every sentence ends in an exclamation mark but I guess that's the only way to talk about this place!)

Breakfast is included and it was by far the best breakfast we had in the whole country of Morocco. Traditional Moroccan fare, cooked with loving care, free refills.

Staying At A Palace In The Medina

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 2, 2006

Before going there I read lots of excited reviews about the place and it did live up to all the expectations. Everything about this place is superlative.

An old palacial residence lovingly restored by its owner, a professional architect, down to a 't'. The best way to describe it is "staying at a museum with all modern amenities"

Their cheapest room (picture#4) at EUR 60 is nothing short of a tremendous value but you can also go for their pricier and even more lavishly appointed suites.

They ask for a deposit when you book but these people are absolutely trustworthy, no nasty tricks.

Directions: 4 min walk from the R'Cif Square
