Yes the central court yard is as beautiful as the photos suggest and lots of work has been put into restoration but the place lacks atmosphere and friendliness. We stayed three nights and I was relieved to be leaving on the third night. The staff are fine, the owner Saleem hangs around a lot like a moody mafia boss in... More

This riad is stunning (six years was spent on restoration) and the owners treat you as family. I stayed in the ambassador suite on the ground floor. The bed was comfy and bathroom exotic yet great water pressure in the shower. Every effort was made to help us enjoy our visit to Fes. Highly recommend Olliya's cooking class and do... More

Visited with friends for four days, very friendly staff, very attentive could not do enough for us, excellent service. Clean rooms, beautiful authentic hotel. Highly recommended guide who took us on tour around Fes, we saw many sights including the oldest tannery, (well worth the visit)traditional pottery and much more. Had a great few days.

This Riad is just wonderful, lot of mosaique and Marok artwork. We had the chance to discuss with Mohammed the owner of the place if I don't mistake. He took the time to explain us the history of the place and helped us with organizing our two days of visits. Our room (luxe) was quiet, away of the patio at... More

A lot of signs make it easy to find from the entrance of main road in R'cif area. About 5-10 minutes walk and you get there. WiFi connection could be better in room but acceptable. Not small room with beautiful paint on wall, no problem with hot water, A/C etc. Good in this price.

We spent 3 nights in this Riad. Mohammed greeted us upon our arrival and we found him to be very pleasant and knowledgeable. He showed us around the Riad and explained the renovations that have taken place. As an architect, he is very proud of the work that was done. We did not find that he was 'pushing' extra tours...

In Rcif we were like in the Arabic Fairytale, breakfast was excellent, the was free maroc mint tea in the evening, the terrase was amazing!!! Thanks very much for the owners for their kindness and smiles!
