This is a small super deluxe hotel with only 5 rooms and a discrete entrance in the medina of Fes. The location is most convenient for travelers. The lobby of the hotel is the patio and home for fish and a spoiled cat. Off to the side is a small breakfast room with a few tables for 2. This is...

I have never before contributed to TripAdvisor but feel compelled to this after a most cosseted four days in this exquisitely restored riad - also to balance some of the remarks posted by our fellow travellers, and my personal guests, pete-fran, in the previous review. Firstly, there ARE windows to ALL the bedrooms in Riad 9. In the lower two,...

Those who've used riads rather than Western style hotels in Morocco will know the beauties of these establishments. The large, beautiful tiled central lobbies rising up to the heights, the tranquil roof terraces, the decorative pools, and the coolness. Those who don't need to understand the limitations, which Riad 9 exemplifies; the very modest standard of plumbing, the pools of...

Riad Numero 9 set the tone of our trip in Morocco. The house was beautiful and clean, more intimate/ authentic than staying at a hotel. Our favorite part was the roof top as it gave a panoramic view of the whole city. Stephen was very responsive and left no questions unanswered! He is the best alongside with Attika and the...

Riad No 9 felt like a home away from home. Off a quiet and out of the way street in the medina is the spectacular riad. It's spectacularly beautiful, well appointed, and the staff is lovely. Stephen gave great recommendations and we had the most wonderful introduction to Morocco staying at Riad 9.

Our stay at Riad Número 9 was a high-light of our Moroccan adventures. The pampering and customized attention started well before we even set foot in the property. Stephen made sure we were picked up and guided through the Medina to Riad n. 9, which was a beautiful experience in itself! Atika was attentive to all our needs. The warm...

Riad 9 has been on my list for a year now. I came to stay for four days and absolutely loved it. I immediately felt at ease, comfortable and yet everywhere I turn from the moment I entered to the moment I woke up, I would look at a magazine. Everything is beautiful. Be it the furniture, the objects, the...

We had an incredible stay at Riad 9- what a peaceful and luxuriant oasis of beauty and calm in the heart of the medina. Stephen, the owner, was extremely helpful and communicative in the lead-up to our visit, and Atika, who manages the Riad for Stephen, was incredibly warm and welcoming from the minute we arrived. She arranged for us...

This Riad is the perfect hotel experience. A unique, intimate oasis from the hustle and bustle of the Medina. Stephen and Atika took exceptional care of us, answering our every email promptly and giving us expert suggestions on dining and sights around Fes. The hotel is exquisitely decorated and styled.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad n°9 is an 18th century bourgeois residence that has been reincarnated as a boutigue bed and breakfast. The decisive factor in purchasing the property was the roof terrace which has sweeping views over the medina. Riad n°9 was originally purchased as a vacation home in 1999 and underwent a 3-year restoration process. We uncovered all the original 18th century mosaics, carved wood and plaster and hand-painted wood. In 2007, we opened to the public and changed nothing believing guests would appreciate the "personal" touches throughout. Our philosophy is to offer guests the possibility of appropriating the space for themselves and experiencing what an authentic medina home feels like. ... more   less

“The riad is located in the Medina , so there is some noise, but on the whole, I would say that it is a quiet place.”
