The first thing worth mentioning is that this place is not the easiest to find if you don't realize that you have to walk to a maze of streets. It is not accessible via car. However, once you find the hotel you will be amazed by what lies behind the very unassuming doors. The inside of the hotel is very...

I travel a lot and have travelled ot many places including Spain, Portugal, Paris, Ibiza, Armenia, Casablanca, Marrakesh California, New York, Florida etc but BY FAR Dar Bensouda EXCEEDS any of the places I have ever stayed. First of all, this Riad is by far the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. The history, the tile work, the wood...

Upon arrival in Fes airport the people of Riad Dar Bensouda awaitened us to take us to the city. Both taxi and luggage city runners were taken care of (upon request) and brought us to the sober front door of the Riad in the midst of Fes' chaotic medina. While sipping tea our luggage was taken to our room. The...

My boyfriend and I only stayed here for one night, but it was easily my favorite riad throughout our entire trip in Morocco! It felt like a luxurious, relaxing haven the moment we stepped inside. Service was fantastic, breakfast was great, and rooms are super spacious and well-decorated.

Dar BenSouda is one of the best places to stay in Fez. Although it is located quite deep into the Medina and not a good place to stay with people having difficulty walking. Once you are inside the Riad you would not want to leave it. Rooms are spacious and beautiful. Breakfast is wonderful. Saeed and his staff provided us...

We spent three nights a this splendid Riad. Wish we could have stayed longer. A former palace in the heart of the Medina, the riad has been extensively remodeled. Beautiful, large rooms tastefully decorated, excellent buffet breakfast. Dinners are also available if you are too tired as we were after wondering all day long in the Medina. Make sure you...

Our stay at Dar Bensouda was excellent. The staff was helpful and attentive. Their breakfast was excellent. They had the only hard boiled eggs we saw during our time on morocco. The pool was refreshing and cold. The rooms were large and had modern bathrooms. The interior was beautiful and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again.
