About Riad Verus

AFFORDABLE low cost accommodation and we want you to feel you are staying in exquisite surroundings without feeling the pinch to your wallets. If you are looking for a fun place with plenty to do, this is your ideal COOL Hostel in Fes. Lastest Edition of Lonely Planet Recommended. SAFEST PART OF THE MEDINA.

We organize henna painting, hammam trips, cooking classes, barber massage, tours of the Medina and help organize Desert Adventures with our team of specialists, daily yoga practice, free tea on arrival and shisha smoking.

Being in a prime location, means that, we are easily accessible for taxis, and only 5 minutes walk from the famous entry gate; Bab Beujeloud and the beautifully restored Place Batha. Great choice for the Sacred Music Festival 6-14 May as we are 5 min walks from Dar Tazi Sufi Night Venue.

We are more suitable for younger guests, who want fun, livliness and an atmosphere, we are by no mean a monestry, out of season the Riad is calmer.

Our clientele are often Americans, Canadians, Kiwis, Aussies & English travelers and couples . Muslims cannot share bedrooms with Non-Muslims out of wedlock, must provide Marriage Certificate and we do not accept Moroccan or Algerian nationals. We do not accept people from the outside. Guests only. Girls we like you back if you are by yourself before 11pm, it can get sketchy at night.

After a full on day exploring and losing yourself in the Medina your return to Riad Verus will feel like a home away from home.

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. If you are arriving from the desert at 05.00 AM on the day of your original booking you will have to pay for a room until check in for your booked reservation later that day.

Check out is @12 noon but you can leave your bags for free, check in will be from 3pm but if the room is already available then it will be immediate.
