Location Information

We are in the Batha neighborhood of the Old City FES EL BALI MEDINA (we are about 3 kms from the Ville Nouvelle - New Town) which is very safe and close to main monuments such as Bab Beujeloud and the Talaa Kbira and Sghira. We are inside the Medina walls and about 20 minutes’ walk to the Tanneries, Kelim Weavers Looms, Hammams, Pottery farms and Medrasas. Closest restaurants include Fes Cafe, Cafe Clock, F Lounge, Ruined Garden, No7 and Al Fassia. Guardians patrol the local neighborhood and wear orange jackets; they are employed by us for your personal safety. We also have on call a worker who can escort you to restaurants on arrival.

PLEASE READ THE DIRECTIONS SECTION FOR YOUR SAFETY AS WE DO NOT WANT OUR CLIENTS BEING SCAMMED ON ARRIVAL TO FES. If you need help finding us then ask your taxi to call us, we speak a little Arabic, but the main language here is English and Spanish and French.

We do not accept guests sleeping in lounge areas, if a room is available and you take it you will be charged - zero tolerance policy in place, a booking on for example 1st December is from 15.00 on the 1st December, not from 00.01 1st December, this is considered a booking for the 30th November.
