During my recent three week visit to Fes, i slept in eleven different riads and dars. Dar el Menia was one of the top places in terms of beauty, quality of service and food, as well as comfort. It was not easy to find it as it is not marked correctly on the map on their webpage, and google maps...

I had a great trip even though the weather was mixed (completely normal for January) Graham and his small team really go out of their way to ensure that all needs are met as far as possible to make for an enjoyable stay and to get the most out of the medina neighbourhood. The rooms are comfortable with heating and...

Yes, the accolades tell it all. Great breakfast, charming fittings, many of copperwork and the little local touches in the decor were quite nicely done. Also being near to the Cafe Clock was wonderful. The business arrangements were clearly and properly communicated. Now given the price, one can get a very central, decent modern style hotel in say Marrakech for...

I stayed at Dar El Menia for 5 nights. I found it exactly as described on the website. The decor was lovely and the room comfortable and clean. Nice view from the roof. (The stairs up to the roof and rooms are very steep.) Breakfast was good and the maintenance man and his wife who cooked and served it were...

It is true, when you are spending and entire day inside the Fes Medina you need a place to chill and recover from all the information you get on the streets. Dar El Menia was this place for us. It was strategically located, really close to the “blue gate” and easy to find (we never got lost once in 4...

Myself and three friends stayed here in 2009 - this is a long overdue review! :) We absolutely loved our stay. We were picked up as promised and given tea our first night there. We loved hanging out on the rooftop, having breakfast and talking to other travellers. The pictures on this site do it justice. If I got back...

I loved Dar El Menia! It's a lovely place hidden in a gem that is The Medina in Fes. Being a first timer in Morocco, I was worried that my friend and I would get lost, especially in the medina. It is literally a maze but the people at Dar El Menia made it seem like a piece of cake...

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Dar El Menia in the heart of the Medina. We would start the day with a sumptuous breakfast on the roof top (eggs, baked bread, jam, butter, coffee with cardamon (I didn't like the cardamon) and when I requested not to have it, they were happy to oblige. I loved our guide...

We booked the entire dar for 15 nights for a floating population of family and friends. It turned out to be perfect for us, allowing us the flexibility to be as busy or lazy as we wanted each day. Jamal, our host, guide, friend and advisor, was so fantastic and funny and helpful. Mostapha and Um Kithum prepared the most...

Quite simply the place to stay. Graham, our host was most welcoming and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and decorated in an authentic, traditional style. The meals were second to none thanks to the chef Um Kal Thum, she certainly is a great asset. This B and B is perfectly located to visit the main attractions on the Medina...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar El Menia lies in the heart of Fes (Fez) Medina, former imperial capital of Morocco and the world’s largest medieval medina. Fes is a UNESCO World Heritage Site but it is not a museum it is a living, breathing city and Dar El Menia provides the perfect luxurious base to begin exploring the old and the new. This dar, or courtyard house, is at least 250 years old and has recently been completely restored using local craftsmen, techniques and materials. ... more   less
