Riad Dar Guennoun was the first during our Morocco travel. It is a very atractive hotel in a quite area of the Medina, car free. The location is perfect to visit the old town of Fez. The hotel is built in traditional Moroccan style and gives you a sense of luxury, comfort and atmosphere - especially at night, when the...

This was the first riad I stayed at in Morocco and it set the standard for the rest of the trip. It is in the medina but easily located from outside the walls. It is cool, quiet and lovely respite from the wild clamor and business of the medina. Miriam Guennoun is a friendly, warm, kind hostess who made sure...

The absolute highlight of my trip to Fes with this Riad and my hostess/proprietor Miriam. I was greeted by a driver at the train station. From the moment I arrived at the Riad I felt like royalty. Gorgeous, serene, authentic are just a few words to describe the physical structure. Kind, attentive, warm, funny, darling are my words to describe...

Upon arrival we were welcomed by Miriam and the staff with mint tea and cookies in a charming, candlelit atmosphere... The ryad is like a scene from 1001 nights - beautiful decoration, pillows everywhere and a small fontain in the middle. Our room (sophia) was not very large, but also nicely decorated,cosy and equipped with airco and tv. Cleanliness was...

My husband and I stayed here at the begining of Jan 2012 for 3 nights. The riad is close to the Bab Rcif gate of the old medina - walking distance about 5 minutes. When we first entered the riad we honestly thought that we came to the wrong riad - it was too good to be true for the...

Made this Riad and Fez my last stop in morocco during a short multi-city trip around spain and morocco. We were a curious group of three who would not hesitate to wonder and get lost in the medina given the chance and we chose this Riad based on the excellent reviews on trip advisor and on the close proximity to...

In the last few months after my Moroccan vacation, I have tried to make a good tajine at home but failed. I decided to contact Miriam from the Riad Dar Guennoun and see if she could help.
