Riad Le Calife is a gem among all the riads we visited in Morroco. The owners are running a great show with attention to all details including fire safety, bathroom amenities (called produits d'accueuil by the Frenchs), etc.... If one wants to be critical, a slightly better egg service for breakfast would be more appealing to patrons from around the...

Riad Le Calife is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are very beautiful and there are TV, AC, refrigerator, hair drier, closet and safe. The food is wonderful and the Staff very gentle. Very well located, easy to reach in a very confuse city. Talk to Alex or Jasmine, the lovely owners, for good tips from Fes.

A more welcoming, enthusiastic and knowledgeable host you could not find in Alexandre and Yasmin. Their love of Fes was infectious and their local knowledge was exceptional allowing us to experience some of the most memorable and enjoyable parts of this ancient city. The Riad itself is a feast for the senses, a treasure trove full of objects and antiques...

You are met at the airport in Fez by a courteous driver who is happy to make sure you are confortable and he is ready to share lots of information with you about his city, Fez. Your baggage is carted through winding streets of the Medina and finally a polished wood door is at the end of an alley. You...

We feel sorry it's taken us so long to write this review, because Yasmin & Alex & the place they have created deserve nothing but the utmost accolades. We loved this Riad. We were lucky enough to try 3 of the rooms - Diamant, Emerald & the smallest of all. All are charming, comfortable and beautifully appointed - which you...

Yasmine and Alex took care of all my needs as a solo, woman traveler! They arranged the transfer from the train station, guide (Khlafa Elasefar - the best) and made me special meals. The Riad is absolutely beautiful and very romantic (too bad I left my man at home as he was scared of traveling to Morocco). I look forward...

There are a few things that make this place great: 1. Location - it's in the heart of the Medina 2. Architecture - the building is a converted old house with a wonderful courtyard, birds chirping in the morning, etc. Sounds like they are expanding. 3. Darwin - the owners' lovely dog 4. The restaurant - terrific food without over-doing...

The friendliest owners with the cutest dog, Darwin, made us feel at home immediately. The riad is beautifully furnished and captures the essence of Morocco. The riad is located in the medina and we walked the maze easily from our accomodation. Rooms were beautiful and I would highly recommend this riad to anyone.

Yasmine and Alexandre are the most warm and welcoming owners/ hosts whom we have ever met. The staff is the same...you think it and they are offering it to you. They seem to understand that you are somewhere "different" when you are in Fes and they anticipate your needs and concerns. We stayed in the Opaline room...beautiful and so comfortable....

This is one of the best boutique hotels I've ever stayed in and definetly the BEST in Morocco. The owners (Yasmine and Alex) are SUPER professional, sweet and helpful. The staff (Soumaya, Mounem, Mohamed and their super chef Fatima) are nice, attentive, extremely warm-without being pushy or slizzy. The food is the best quality and value for money I found...
