Liked: It was well located in the medina - with a lot of character. The staff were friendly and helpful and the reception room was a pleasure to spend time in.

Disliked: It lacks the modern touch in the bedroom and bathroom - a little investment would go a long way.

Liked: This was our first time here, in Fés. We arrived a bit late in the night but we instantly felt welcomed by Mohamed. After a long journey this place felt like heaven for us. The hostel was pretty easy to find, in the heart of the Medina. The room was cosy, beautiful and very clean. The breakfast was really good and the staff was gentle. We would risk to say, one of the best spots!

Liked: The location in the center of Medina, the staff was very helpful, they organize for us a tour guide - his name was Fued, who is worth to be recommended. We had a nice, full day of discovering Fez with him.

Disliked: the standard of bathroom was a bit poor comparing to other places we stayed in Morroco.

Liked: The staff was extremely nice and helpful. This would be an especially good place for first time travelers to Morocco because they offered a lot of valuable advice about how to avoid being swindled. The location is easy to find, unlike other hostels where you may need to find a guide to lead you there. Also there were working showers and private bathrooms, which we appreciated after the last few hostels we were in.

Disliked: The only bad thing was that there was not a lot of privacy.

Liked: This is a really beautiful riad, our room was huge and cozy. The breakfast was also really delicious! The location near the Blue Gate also makes it easy to navigate to.

Disliked: A bit expensive, but worth it.

Liked: The staff was really nice (espcially mohammed who works the evening to night shift) and the rooms were really clean and nicely decorated. Included in the rate is a really good Moroccan style breakfast. The staff can also book you a guide to take you around the medina and recommend restaurants (if you can find them!). You're close to the Blue Gate (Bab Bol...) which makes it easy to find ( through the gate bare right, follow the road right as you snake past the restuarants and then head straight until you see a sign up on the right...approx 2 minutes walk) when you get there (but take them up on the offer of picking you up, you get a lot of unwanted attention when you have bags) and the location makes it easy to slip out to the Merenid tombs at sunset for a great view of the medina. Two other things nearby I would recommend are Cafe Clock (from here go left, first right theough the arch, then first left onto main street, look for sign on right) if you want to escape the chaos but still have local food (they have a roof terrace and cooking classes, yoga etc). The other is Riad Fes to grab a drink of their roof top with an incredible view of the medina. Drinks are pretty reasonable so if you can't afford to stay here (our riad was beautiful anyway) you can go for the view and a drink that is hard to find in the medina (right on the main street, on the third left go up and make the first left, follow the road round to the right, it's on your left).

Disliked: Nothing about the hotel was bad in my opinion. A word about guides...get one because you won't go down or even find these streets without them. However they will take you shopping and where they take you the prices will be really high. I would recommend just looking and buying later unless you are looking for very high quality (which you may not get anyway) or something very specific.
