We stayed in the stunning pistachio room. It is elegant and spacious. I loved the pink and green tiled floor that carried through to the bathroom with its unusual curving bath tub. The bed with its jewelled canopy was very comfortable and it was quiet at night no traffic or barking dogs. The atrium is a restful place with a...

Ryad 53 has a prime location. You aren't directly in the rabbit's warren that is Fes, but you are just on its doorstep. When I contacted Jean-Luc for directions, they were spot on, which is a first in Morocco. The room we booked, the turquoise room, was having some water issues so Jean-Luc offered us another one that was next...

I love the ryad, it is so beautiful like an Arabic dream. It is not a big Ryad, but rooms are quite big. Nice decoration. But we always can smell some cat pee. Shower doesn't have enough hot water, and the room is a little cold. Location is super good, inside medina, but close to somewhere you can park the...

We visited Fez for 5 days staying at Ryad 53. The Ryad is beautiful with a lovely terrace on the roof. Situated at the border of the Medina, it is an ideal base for visiting Fez. The rooms are spacial and well kept and the ground floor has two common rooms where one can relax after a chaotic day in...

The peace and quiet on entering the Ryad is so welcome after the 'chaos' on the streets outside. It is near the main gate of the Medina with plenty of bars and restaurents on the doorstep. The rooms are light and airy and beautifully decorated. They are kept exceptionally clean and tidy. The breakfasts on the terrace are great as...

We spent 3 nights in the guesthouse, definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The first impression was of the beauty of the ryad itself, decorated with great style and taste, a calm and soothing environment just next to the main entrance of the medina (Bab Bou Jloud, with many comfy eating places). There are few and big rooms,...

I had one of the best time in this Riad while touring Morocco for 35 days. After a long journey I've felt that this Riad was a perfect choice during my 4 days in Fes: great location (in the entrance of medina in Batha area), cozy ambience, clean, beautiful/well decorated, confortable room and a wonderful home cooking. Cecile, the owner,...

We really enjoyed our stay at Ryad 53. The location on the edge of the Medina is perfect, and the owner is very attentive and helpful. We stayed in the Pistache room, which is enormous and beautiful. The cool, quiet and relaxing atmosphere makes an excellent contrast to the bustle of the Medina. Definitely recommended!
