They are very friendly, make you feel like home. The dinner is a must try. breakfast is great as well. Bed is carefully selected and very comfortable. Shower is awesome with hot and powerful water. Love the complimentary snacks everyday, very impressive.
Everything was good, the staff was gorgeous, the room, the food and the place wonderful. They make you feel at home in the middle of a impressive medina.
We enjoyed the house, the kindness of the people, the information provided.
A little bit scary in the beginning, but it's just a false impression. Then you become use to the place and the cultural way of the city
The most friendly staff I have ever met in Morocco. It is hard to find a riad in Morocco which has a heating facility like this one!
everything, the local people, the staff the dars food ( as ate in, every breakfast and evening meal was beyond expectations the room, the shower, we feel we would not have found better anywhere else, thank you
Joyelle and her staff are so fabulous. Loved her hospitality, the dar and decor, as well as the home-cooked meals!
The place is clean; the bathroom is very nice with plenty of hot water; the heating works well in the room. the staff is friendly. The breakfast is nice (all sweet, no salty). The manager of the hotel is very attentive to details. They were very flexible with the breakfast time which was very accommodating for us as we don't like to wake up early
1. The hotel participates in the general culture of exploiting tourists. Before our arrival, we were offered a taxi from the train station for 10 Euros with the sentence added to that email that it can be difficult to find the place by ourselves. For that, we took their offer because we were worried we wouldn't find it by taking a normal taxi. However, as it turns out, it is a car belonging to a tourist company (which made us wait for 15 minutes before they showed up), and they used the drive to talk about the tours they offer. Also, the car took us to a famous spot "Rcif" from where, the hotel manager has to walk you to the hotel because it is indeed impossible to find on your own. A normal taxi would have cost less than 1 Euro, and I didn't appreciate the double exploitation of making me pay so much more AND use the time to try to make more money out of us by offering tours. This incident irked me. 2. The place is inside the medina and you have to walk narrow alleys to reach it. 3. We had the violet room and the wifi was very weak there. 4. In other countries (e.g. Turkey) where tap water is not drinkable, hotels offer you a complimentary bottle of water/day. In the hotel, they offer it for many multiples of the cost outside. 5. We thought the price of the dinner was too much as you can dine very well outside for half the price. Usually, dinners offered at hotels are supposed to come with a discount so we didn't try it. 6. I guess many of the problems above irked us because we are long term travelers and not on a short splurge vacation.
Well placed in the medina, easy to walk to everything
Difficult to find at first
Everything, the decor, the room, the food, the staff were excellent
didn't have much time
Thank you for an excellent stay, very comfortable, fantastic staff, fabulous breakfasts !
Location, friendliness of the owner and staff, clean house, wonderful food.
During our 3 nights stay, we experieced all the warmth of Caroline and the personell. This riad is perfectly located in the medina and once you have entered the front door you step into a fairy tale and an oasis of peace! The room, bathroom and the main areas of the dar are perfectly clean and immaculate. All the decoration is very tasteful and unique and nevertheless extremely comfortable. On the rooftop you will find a nice relaxing area with a beautiful view. The breakfast is marvellous with home-made jams, fresh orange juice, lovely (pan)cakes, plenty of bread and coffee/tea and during our one week stay in Morocco we did not have a better dinner than in this house, delicious; what a fantastic cook! It is possible to order beer or wine. It was a great pleasure to stay with Caroline and her staff, who are always waiting with a nice mint tea after a day in the Medina and for whom no effort is too much. She also arranged a good guide for us (it is very hard to find your way in Fes on the first day) and a wonderful address for a Hammam. And not to forget the taxi from the airport and to the railway-station and even spoiled us with nice food for during our journey in the train! We would certainly recommend this Dar to all our friends!
Host is great and on the roof you get wonderful views of many medina houses. For an incidental visit of a cat to my room, the host gave me a bottle of excellent Morroco white wine as a gift. I had an unforgatable night enjoying both the wine and the view. Strong recommend.
The hotel manager, the staff, the food, the decor, the breakfast.
Sleeping throug the Call to Prayer is impossible. It becomes disruptive when small B&Bs like this have small children visiting, it is something that can not be helped, just not my optimal choice.
Very nice Riad with excellent staff, all the Information we needed, helpfull by travelling, very good breakfast and dinner
The location is not. easy to find but we succeded thanks t good maps and instructions
Jolie and her team made every effort to make our stay in Fez a wonderful experience. We at
Very helpful. Extremely clean. Lovely atmosphere.
The location is a bit different to that on the map.
It was a calm oasis within the churning ft the medina. Great experience for anyone to do. Madame Joelle has an excellent staff for such a small operation. Excellent dinners each night too.
The breakfast was repetitive.
Very nice environment Big and clean rooms Excellent service Breakfast was very good
Hard to find in the medina first time - so take advantage of their offer to meet you in the main square when you first arrive
Very friendly and helpful staff (the owner did us breakfast at 5am and then walked us to our airport transfer outside the medina). Good breakfast and excellent dinner. Wonderful view of the medina from roof top terrace. Very comfortable room and very clean. Couldn't really ask for more!
very friendly and nice service. We felt at home. The room was very clean and their terraces were super confortable.
Can't praise this Riad enough. Very clean, very good food, great staff. Joelle is an amazing woman to run it for her family. If you want to visit real Fez, ie the Medina, you can't get a better Riad.
Be aware that this is a muslim country and there are reputed to be 800 mosques in the Medina. Unless you are completely deaf you will be woken by the call to prayer, currently around 4am. But this is Morroco, don't let it put you off.
If you wanted to be in the Medina of Fes, this was one of the best locations. Deep inside Either the owner or her staff came out to meet us and guide us in. The meals provided were excellent, so fresh. Service was outstanding. Can't recommend enough, hope to return.
Bear in mind you are in the Medina where there are reputed to be circa 800 mosques. You will be woken around 4am for first call of the mosques. But this is part of the whole amazing experience of a different culture.
Great location in the Medina. Joelle and her staff made us feel at 'home.' Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Willing to help with any questions or queries. Breakfast was fantastic! Great variety and fresh everyday. Including tea, coffee, fresh juice, fruit, various types of jam (home made), yoghurt, sweets, dates, almonds. Riad and rooms are very clean. A bottle of water was provided in our everyday. Joelle and her team pay attention to every detail. Highly recommend staying at Dar Faracha Fes!
