Stayed 4 nights and would have happily stayed longer. The riad is very conveniently located just off a main road into the medina, but is easy to reach and very quiet. There's a beautiful courtyard and a rooftop area with stunning views over Fes. Alex and Yasmine, the owners, can't do enough to make your stay special in every way....

We were welcomed to this wonderful oasis hidden among the tiny alleys of the oldest Medina in the world by an exuberant Alex, a Parisian transplant to Fes. Alex and his wife Yasmina, a Fes native, transformed one of the old riads of Fes into a place of grace and beauty. Taking the best of Arabic culture, architecture and decorative...

We stayed in this Riad during 3 days. Le Calife is a beautiful and comfortable hotel. Alex, Yasmine and their team are the best possible hosts to introduce and guide you through this amazing city that is Fes. We highly recommend them!!

I globally travel 6-8 times per year as a professional. Thus, my opinions are based on a 30 year history of global travel and knowledge of accommodations. Only one place better in town, and that is the modern Palais Faraj, which is owned by the same influential Fes family. The father has the "ear" of the King and is very...

We could not have chosen a better Riad for our visit to Fes and would highly recommend staying here. Our hosts were incredibly friendly, helpful, good humoured and welcoming, and we left feeling as though we had made new friends and stayed in their home rather than at a hotel! The Riad itself is beautifully restored and furnished with carefully...

We stayed in the Topaz room during our three nights in Fes, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The room: The Topaz room is beautifully furnished, quiet (on the first floor) and really comfortable. From the stained glass windows and gorgeous decorations, to the amazing smelling bath soaps and much-needed air-con, the space was perfect. We were given...

We stayed at the riad for 2 nights and definitely recommend it. We chose it because of the reviews we read on Trip Advisor and our stay there exceeded our expectations.
