Trouble with Fez hotels

by irishbloke79

Hallo,

I'm trying to book a medium hotel in the Ville Nouvelle for three nights at threend of May/beginning of June in Fez and so far everywhere I've tried has been booked up. Does anyone have any suggestions of hotels I might try in the EUR30-50 range? Have I left it too late (slightly over a month in advance)? Is there some kind of special event going on, or am I saying the wrong thing - so far everyone I've spoken to has told e they're full without even having to check.
Thanks a million.

Hi

It is too difficult to find a hotel in Fez at the end of may beginning of june, cz there is a special event "the festival of spiritual music", all hotels are full, singers come from all over the world to perform in this festival.
Try to book through this travel agency: www.atlasvoyages.co.ma
Good luck

Travel Tips for Fes

Fassis: Better than you

by JamalMorelli

Though the title catches the spirit, ask around. What do Moroccans outside Fes think of Fassis?
As an adopted Fassi, I'll say that the attitude isn't just that your city is measurable less souflful, that your food (and yo' mama's food) is not as tasty, your clothes don't have that combo of ancient elegance and still sexy look, that your particular culture hasn't had the 1300 year headstart that Fes has -

I'll say it again and again - any place that has had as long as old Fes has had to come up with an idea of itself is going to feel, or at least appear to feel, superior. (and therefore, possibly make you feel out-classed, a cultural 'wuss')

WARNING: uh-oh, You feel small.
Well, if you feel put upon by so much seemingly innate native cultural magnificence and grandness, try this: Hot Summer Best Selling Books are a bit of weak point with them. So point out (to a Fassi poet, Sufi philosopher, medina boho, Quran reciter for one example) that while the Fez-educated authors may be of some of most profound in the world, they don't really understand 'where it is at' when it comes to Jackie Collins! Yeah! Fes has never created anything like "The Stud," "The B*tch" or anything in the Hollywood Series.

Chicken Square

by barryg23

When we entered the medina through the southern gates, one of the first things we saw was the chicken sellers square. It had been many years since I'd seen a live chicken, and I normally prefer to shop for the "finished product" rather than the live one. Little more than a tiny square, there seemed to be more sellers than chickens.

Decorative Ceiling

by keeweechic

The very high main ceiling is elaborately painted in various designs and colours and is supported by intricately tiled pillars. The outer ceiling area is covered will slatted wood panelling. Beautiful Moroccan lamps as well as a chandelier brighten the room. All the walls are decorated in attractive Arabesque tiles.

Museum dal albetha

by travolta159

This museum is a few minutes walk from Bab Boujeloud and is housed in a palace built in 1873 by Moulay el-Hassan. There is a impressive tiled courtyard with a fountain and a beautiful Andalusian garden encompassing the area. You may need some time to properly take in all the displays that are spread over 12 rooms in the building. 11th century gold embossed leatherbound books, Andalusian manuscripts dating back to the 8th and examples of illuminated calligraphy will be of interest to bookworms, historians and scholars.

Fine old specimens of Moroccan craftsmanship such as Berber jewellery, ceramics, embroidery and calendabras and other everyday articles used hundreds of years ago can be seen in rooms 2 to 5 of the museum. Woodwork has always been a highly esteemed craft in Morocco with exotic woods such as cedar, thuya and citron used for beautifully designed chests and furniture examples of which are on display. Zellij tilework adorns most mosques and fine buildings in the country and the display of this colourful art is not to be missed.

Hire a guide and "learn" about the medina

by Venturingnow

Granted, I could have walked around the medina and looked at stuff, but hiring a guide to take me around and tell me about all types of things was a great experience. I saw and learned more than I ever expected with the guide, he was a great idea.
