We were taken by the riad administrator from the median gate so a telephone prior to arriving there is recommended.The place is like a museum, kept original, you can feel the real moroccan style everywhere. Go for the food cooked in house by the lovely Leila (I hope I got the name right). thanks for the good music played in...

My family and I visited Dar rbab for lunch today and had a very lovely experience. The staff were attentive and welcoming and while we practiced our French the staff was also fluent in English. The building is a lovely 800 year old home in the Medina and is well kept (lovingly so) with a strong aesthetic as well as...

We liked: Great location - minutes walk from the main souk and easy enough to find, and there's a small shop at the end of the street which was a godsend when we arrived on Friday night when all the restaurants were closed. We were given a key to the main door and our room, and felt very secure inside...

We stayed in the red room of the riad, which we booked for 4 nights. Unfortunately we decided to leave after two nights for the following reasons: - Despite it being a small riad and not a hotel, we were not given any advice at arrival or visit of the riad, or a welcome tea to discuss the history of...

We do normally offer guests tea on arrival. Equally, we do our best to orientate our guests within the medina. But, we are a very small business and it is possible that in this instance it didn't happen. To be fair to us, it is a free service. We've covered the subject of our bathrooms before here. They were designed,...

We spent 3 nights at Dar Rbab, and due to my gluten free diet, felt it wise to eat breakfast and dinner here, especially as I was particular about not only eating traditional Moroccan cuisine, but not having to worry about dietary difficulties. There is a very relaxed feel about this Riad, and a freedom to move around which was...

The room was comfortable and the aircon was a lifesaver for us during August, the hottest month of the year! Mohammad was always there to assist us with anything and everything during our stay. He also arranged a guide, Abdul, to bring us around the medina. Abdul was really engaging and protective of us as we walked around the medina....

7 friends, last stage of our Morocco's tour. This riad is great, we really enjoy the hours here, especially thanks to the advices of Mohamed, the housekeeper, who has been always at our disposal. The position is good, all the highlights of the Medina are easily reachable by walking. The only negative things are the bathrooms: really simple and severe,...

We stayed 2 nights in Dar Rbab and it felt immediately like home. Mohammed was really friendly and helped us with a guide. The breakfast made by Aisha was fine and the room is really authentic. It were our first days in Morocco and we will never forget them.

Booked at Riad Dar Rbab on short notice after original place cancelled- what a blessing in disguise! The room was beautiful, we had the downstairs room which even though it was 40 degrees outside it was cool all day and night long. The bed was extremely comfortable - proper spring mattress! The breakfast was traditional and delicious, they even catered...

We got a very good room at a good price for three days. Some mention that the hotel is hidden in the Medina, but Mark gave us three different descriptions of getting there and in the end we asked Mohammed, a nice employee and friend of the hotel, to bring us from one of the 14 gates of the Medina...

Thank you for your review. The bathrooms for both the Indian Room and the Red Room were designed as traditional hammans - something close to a wet room. They aren't designed to drain efficiently, but were built when I was planning a family home rather than a guest house. One day we'll get around to knocking off all the traditional...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Rbab is a charming, 300 year old house in the Fès Medina. It has been lightly restored to provide spacious, en suite bedrooms with air conditioning, within the framework of the existing house. All the original features remain - access to your room is by huge, gilded cedar wood doors - and the house is a warren of small staircases and interesting corners. There's an informal atmosphere - the house was originally our family home - and great food available to order. ... more   less

“Ask to be on the top floor, as there is one room in the ground floor, very dark and noisy as close to the breakfast area.”
JanAntibes, 3 Nov 2013 | Read review
“Choose an upstairs room, the downstairs room is adjacent to the living area.”

“If you have bulky baggage you should probably choose the room on the ground floor if possible. Lugging the baggage up and down the stairs is a chore!”
