My wife and I stayed here in April 2017 for two nights, booked by Morocco Expert Tours. It was a fantastic experience. The exterior alley that leads to the hotel, like all places in the medina of Fes, is deceptively run down but once you enter the riad it's an oasis. We were warmly welcomed by Yunis (sp?) and Samir...

Beautiful, expansive riad with superlative service situated well to the Fes Medina and other districts and amenities. All of the staff and management go above and beyond to make your stay welcoming and comfortable -- but a special shout out to Younes. There are a range of excellent Moroccan dishes served for dinner and wine is available. Be aware you...

We spent five nights at this riad during a visit with our daughter, who was studying in Fes. The riad was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very service-oriented. The dining (we had breakfast every day and dinner two evenings) was excellent. The staff arranged drivers for us for several outings (pick up at the airport in...

We stayed here with friends for our last two nights in Morocco and had the most wonderful time. We had a lovely room (with beautiful lighting- loved the bedside lanterns!), and there were gorgeous and restful common areas for eating and relaxing. I was tempted to have my first ever hammam by how beautiful the space was. I hope to...

I booked this hotel in spite of my wife's reservations after seeing some pictures, but we were pleasantly surprised when we got there. The courtyard is stunning, and the service was outstanding, with extremely helpful and friendly staff. The room itself was a bit dated, and the color scheme was a bit gaudy for our taste, but the 5* service...

During a 8 day trip through Morocco with Morocco Expert Tours, we stayed at many quality Riads but none better then Riad El Yacount. My wife and I would recommend this place to all travelers as it's a former private mansion with all its former luxury and architecture in a very convenient location. The staff is absolutely the best in...

This is a wonderful place to stay. The building and rooms were gorgeous, as expected, but the staff really made it special. They went above and beyond to make us - particularly our daughters ages 7 and 12 - feel welcome. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
