We were thrilled with our stay at Dar Bensouda. The property is amazing and my family of four including two adult daughters were given a ground floor of two spacious suites and a private courtyard. We loved it ! The interiors were both stylish and exotic and the soft furnishings, beds, linens of the highest standard. The location is ideal...

The riad is situated in Fes El Bali which is the old town and home to most of the popular sites in Fes. Location wise you are around 20 minutes walk from the Karioune University and other main market area. Whilst the riad is in the back streets he friendly staff are always willing to walk you to your desired...

I booked a double room but I was worried about getting a tiny and a dark room until I walked through the door. It was a beautiful, newly renovated suite with a large open fire and a bath tub. I was welcomed with a cup of tea and biscuits. Staff are kind, helpful and they can't do enough for you....

Stayed 3 nights from Jan 15 to Jan 18. Staff are so kind and the place is so beautiful. We spends a few hours just looking around the Riads. Breakfast are so delicious and the room is so cozy. I rarely give perfect review on rooms but I will give one to this riad. Rui from Toronto.

Although Just visited for the view from the room terrace I must admit this place has the most advantageous location for photography of the city. The rooms and the other amenities seem very luxurious. The pool within the riad must be very relaxing during sommer time.

This large riad has been wonderfully restored to perfection. I was mesmerized by the large detailed wooden doors. (The property was previously a Koranic school) Rooms are spacious, luxurious and ceilings must be say 15 meters high at least. The central living area is vast with many doors and rooms leading from the space. Good quality beds and lots of...

We arrived in the evening and were met by two people to take us and our luggage (whew!) through the winding medina to the Riad. Thankfully, they always had guides to take and bring us back because we never found our way on our own. When we arrived, we were amazed when we walked into our area. We had two...

This is a nice clean modern Riad in a good location of Fes. The rooms are nicely design. The Riad is very big with pool and many areas to sit and relax. Get a tour of the Riad. Make sure you get a tour guide to guide you through the city. There is no way you can find your way...
