Fez Medina is a wonderful place to explore; a sensory delight, with culture, history and mystery awaiting you at every corner.
Dar Fes Medina has ten charming rooms equipped with quiet air conditioning, television and satellite programming.
Moroccan cuisine is considered one of the most important in the world, and a delight to nearly all the senses.
Staying at Dar Fez Medina is an enchanting and surprisingly affordable experience.
This jewel at the heart of the ancient Medina of Fez is situated in Ziat, one of the oldest residential neighbourhoods of the Medina.
Dar Fez Medina is a traditional Moroccan house and offers ten beautifully appointed rooms which blend the old and the new in a tasteful manner.
Incorporated into the traditional architecture, with its carved plaster, cedar woodwork and zellij tiles.
The Medina was an amazing place. We were travelling in a group, which was good as we felt very safe. I would not recommend going alone. The narrow streets were like a never ending maze, crowded with colourful shops, market items, animals, people, tourists. The sights and smells were overwhelming. The medina was a trip back in time as we’ve never encountered a place like it. It’s hard to believe that people live and work in those conditions. We were on a tour of three countries and Morocco was the highlight for me.
We stayed at Dar Fes Medina for three nights. The welcome we received upon arrival was the best in all of our travels in Morroco. Both Imane and Mohammed (owner) chatted with us as we enjoyed the mint tea and cookies that were provided. The breakfasts were delicious and filling – we couldn’t finish all. We arranged through the hotel transfer from the train station, city tour and tour to Meknes/Volubilius. Again, both Imane and Mohammed checked in to see how we enjoyed the days, including drivers and guides. Would definitely recommend.
Mohammad and Imane made us feel like part of the family. On arrival and any time during the day mint tea and the most delicious cookies made at the riad were a welcome down time. Each day we spent time reading in a shared area getting to meet other guests or talking to staff. They organised two tours for us and both were excellent with English speaking guides. We also did a cooking course at the riad with one of the cooks, shopping at the medina for ingredients with Imane. Breakfasts were filling. The terrace is a lovely place to chill out. Great location and Mohammed’s recommendations for restaurants was spot on. Friendly staff, very comfortable beds, great air conditioner and a nice hot shower…..what more could we want!
Mohammed and Imane were fabulous from start to finish. Imane regularly works at the front desk and answered our emails very quickly and with detail. Mohammed then met us at the car when we were dropped off in Fes and walked us to his riad, inside the Medina. Unlike many riads, this one is rather easy to locate, a plus! We were greeted with mint tea and cookies and served that plus water whenever we wanted during our stay. That was a very nice touch. Breakfast was delicious. Our timeline didn’t permit it but it sounds like having dinner there would be great as well. The room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. It was in the medina but on a quieter street, which we enjoyed. Our last day we asked Mohammed if he knew of a place to buy nice tea sets, and instead of just telling us, he drove us there. The hospitality at this place is top notch. While we had no issues, I am confident Mohammed and his team would tend to any concerns. He asked us before we left if we had any constructive criticism for him. This shows he’s constantly looking to improve his business. Well done Mohammed and team and thank you again for hosting us in your lovely city!
