Wonderful Riad in Fez. Rooms are immaculate with wonderful details. The owners are lovely and go out of their way to help. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the city is stunning. I hope this wonderful Riad does well in the coming years as it deserves it.

My brother and I stayed here a few nights in March. Juliette arranged a taxi to meet us at the train, which was well worth it. Although we found it quite easy to navigate our way around Marrakesh, Fes is a little more confusing and we would have gotten lost finding our way to the Riad. But once we had...

My wife and I returned to stay at Dar G-. We had enjoyed our last visit a year ago. Juliette (owner) was terrifically helpful. Said made a not-to-be forgotten tagine at the hotel. If you're looking for a special place - and this is a special place - this 17th C palace is truly amazing.

When we entered the riad at midnight, looking at the interior and the hospitality after a long journey from Marrakech, and at the middle of old Medina in Fes, we felt like we have entered into an ancient castle. The furniture were well decorated with stones and colorful paint. The small fountain at the center of the lobby was very...
