The Riad Rcif is an oasis of calm and stunning architecture in the heart of Fes. Deceptively unassuming from the outside, the interior is quite simply spectacular, the origins of the building date back to an illustrious past of governance in this old city. The service and food (particularly the roof terrace) is quite simply fantastic and we were made...

I think it is important to separate the hotel from the owner If you can ignore all the owner's lies, not let him manipulate your plans, say "no" to his attempts to sell items (ceramic tiles etc ), say "no" to his aggressive attempts to go with his "teacher" for "free" ( who will take you to many shops with...

The best spot in Morocco! If you go anywhere in Morocco make sure you come here. The people are very friendly and genuinely want to make your stay and visit in Fes memorable. The staff set us up with an official guide named Idriss who spent the day with us and told us all about the city, its people and...

Riad rcif may be a little hard to find upon arrival but just follow the signs. The Riad is beautifully restored and worth seeing just for the architecture and design. Everyone in the Riad is super kind.

There is no denying that Riad Rcif is beautiful, and has been painstakingly restored to its former glory. The rooms were as shown on the website, and we stayed in the Aida suite which has a wonderful 4 poster bed with the bathroom up a steep, narrow staircase. The staff, while not fluent in English, were very eager to help...

We stayed only one night here at the end of September. But it would have been great to stay longer. The staff is great. Very attentive. We were met on the street and had help winding into the medina where he hotel was located. About a 5 minute walk. I suggest few bags, or get someone to help carry them....

Beautiful rooms furnished in the style of princes. Cedar wood ceilings and fine silks. The riad is situated in the Medina and has easy access to shops and restaurants. One can hire a guide for the day at a reasonable price. The food is prepared by Haja Fatima and is amazing especially the tagines and the hone made bread. Altogether...

Room was exactly as shown in photos, hotel itself is a beautifully restored Riad. Staff works very hard to meet any request, taking you to restaurants, spas etc if you are unfamiliar with the area. The area itself takes some getting use to, but is walking distance to many major sites, and very close to a taxi stand. It was...

Visited this stunning Riad in Fez. We received a most warm welcome from Mohamed, Manager. Riad Rcif is beautiful with intricate art work and Moorish architecture. My suite was perfect. Hamam-styled bathroom with hand made fixtures @ fittings. Most important of all,was the great service and hospitality of host Mohamed. A home away from home. Thank you Mohamed!
