Had an amazing time in Fes, it is a beautiful city, and our time was made infinitely better and easier because of Riad L'artiste. Great service/breakfast/internet within a visually stunning riad, with a great terrace with a wonderful view. Great value for money, and they even provide guests with beer! Which was a change from Marrakech! About a 15/20 minute...

GREAT first experience in Africa. We traveled from Alabama. and our adventurous spirits paid off. My husband and I were pleased with our room. The location felt safe and quiet. We were treated respectably. The Riad was quiet, and we rested well. Our night-cap was served by Hamza, and he made sure we were satisfied. A tour guide was arranged...

A handsome house in the south of the medina by the Bab Jdid R'Sif on four levels comprising five generous sized rooms, a central lounge and a rooftop terrace. Our resident assistant Hamza remained on site throughout and Fathiya during the day expertly and most modestly cared for us, the rooms and the kitchen. Despite one or two rough edges...

Well we absolutely lived staying at this Riad. The room was amazing, very romantic and spacious.

Nice atmosphere and helpful staff. The riad is close to the centre but also far enough away from the medina to be quiet at night. It's full of character, but like most riads rather dark because all the bedrooms face onto the courtyard. The bathrooms could do with a little modernisation (and for some reason toilet rolls always seem to...

“Great terrace views; lower floors offer less climbing. Nothing impossible, but the stairs are a bit steep.”

“we loved our room (Laura Hind) It was spacious with an enormous bath - perfect for orange blossom steamy baths after a day in the medina!”

“The Persanne room is at ground level and can get quite noisy when guests are in the courtyard.”

“Bottom room has the best wifi connection, but it's right at the breakfast area. I'd say Africainne (first floor) is your best bet for connection plus location and quiet”
