From the moment we arrived, we were treated like a king and queen. The service was exemplary and all staff spoke English. They went out of their way to make our stay extra special. They even baked us a cake with a personalized message for our anniversary. The room was traditional Moroccan decor with stained glass windows, beautiful mosaic walls,...

We did not stay at this hotel, but we did stop in for a dinner. The three course meal was $40 per person, however the staff let us order two of the dinners for three people and we shared them. The staff was able to explain everything in english and were very helpful to explain what we were eating and...

This Riad should be a 5Star place if not more. situated in the beautiful Medina Fes. A magical place that we were lucky enough to spend a few days, while visiting the fortified city of Fes. We loved every minute we spent here. The whole building is an architectural marvel and an interior designers dream. Samir (manager) and his staff...

We stayed in Riad El Yacout for two nights while visiting Fès. We did a tour around Morocco visiting the Imperial cities and the desert. It has been fantastic, everything at the Riad was wonderful. Highly recommended!

An expansive and delicious breakfast of many different Moroccan breads and pastries, eggs and fresh fruit. We enjoyed ice cold beers by the pool in a highly aesthetically pleasing surrounding -...

Yacout is an excellent riad, with beautiful decor and ambiance. Samir and his staff were friendly and provided the best service! The breakfast is out of this world. You will feel at home here in this oasis of tranquility. Yacout has an ideal location by Fes's medina, but isolated enough to feel relaxed and calm. Highly recommend staying here!

I had a huge room overlooking the pool. The riad is truly unique with an authentic Moroccan atmosphere. You enter off an alley and go through a door which reveals a treasure.The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and helpful. Younes was the best! I would absolutely stay here again.

Tired. Step into this gorgeous palace and be greeted by Samir and Younis who welcome you so warmly and genuinely to Fes. Younis immediately pours from 4 feet a glass of piping hot mint tea and offers you cinnamon cookies. Impressed you will be. Wait until you see your room. We decided to have dinner here and it was the...

A beautiful historic home from 1347. The service was very personal, making a great effort to meet every need. Our room was small but comfortable. The food was excellent, and were very accommodating to our various needs: vegetarian, gluten free, non dairy. The location was great, walking distance from the ancient Medina. There is a small pool, but that is...
