This is the best riad in Morocco (along our trip we stayed also in Riad Zyo-Rabat, Riad Zahra-Essouira, Riad Selouane -Marrackech). In Rcif we were like in the Arabic Fairytale, breakfast was excellent, the was free maroc mint tea in the evening, the terrase was amazing!!! Thanks very much for the owners for their kindness and smiles!

I have joined Trip advisor just to write this review as I think all visitors should be warned. This Riad is in a very inconvenient and uninteresting area in the Median. It is far from the desirable area of the Medina. Fez is so beautiful and interesting. It is a shame we stayed in this area. If you want to...

The Riad Rcif is an oasis of calm and stunning architecture in the heart of Fes. Deceptively unassuming from the outside, the interior is quite simply spectacular, the origins of the building date back to an illustrious past of governance in this old city. The service and food (particularly the roof terrace) is quite simply fantastic and we were made...

I think it is important to separate the hotel from the owner If you can ignore all the owner's lies, not let him manipulate your plans, say "no" to his attempts to sell items (ceramic tiles etc ), say "no" to his aggressive attempts to go with his "teacher" for "free" ( who will take you to many shops with...

The best spot in Morocco! If you go anywhere in Morocco make sure you come here. The people are very friendly and genuinely want to make your stay and visit in Fes memorable.

Riad rcif may be a little hard to find upon arrival but just follow the signs. The Riad is beautifully restored and worth seeing just for the architecture and design. Everyone in the Riad is super kind.
