At a Glance

- Not only great interiors but superb patios for an evening drink
- Above all, Riad Fes has some of the best cuisine of any hotel in Fez
- Moreover, there’s a range of suites and rooms to suit all budgets
Riad Fes was one of the first riads to open in Fez, and it has a long history of excellent service and refined hospitality. Space is always a premium in any hotel located in the heart of the medina, and Riad Fes is spacious. It is actually a collection of three riads, meaning you have two spacious courtyards and a total of 26 bedrooms.
As with most riads, you will find amazing Moroccan craftsmanship all around you. The superb stucco-work on the columns and zellij tile-work make for a ‘wow’ moment when you enter the Riad.
Next door, you find the Andalous wing. This is a more modern style and demonstrates how Riad Fes blends old and new perfectly. You can opt for traditional Moroccan rooms in the old wing or chic yet stylish Deluxe Rooms in the new wing.
You can take breakfast downstairs in the Old Court and dinner in the restaurant (L’Ambre) or on the roof-level terrace upstairs. The trendy bar next to L’Ambre is perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail. There is a swimming pool, a hammam and massage facilities.
During your stay in Fez, you can head out on a walking tour of the city. You can also explore the nearby towns of Meknes, Moulay Idriss and the Roman town of Volubilis.
Millis Potter Insight
Firstly, Riad Fes has been around for a long time. Evidently, this ensures the finest service that you find anywhere in the city. This especially true of the cuisine, where it has received the prestigious Relaix and Chataeu accreditation. By and large, the rooms and suites are exceptional. The Royal Suite is especially wonderful, with the best terrace in the city. Above all, we love the rooftop bar for a drink before dinner. Furthermore, you actually have a usable, rather than ornamental pool. In a similar fashion, the spa is superb.
