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!
Staff and interior design
host Joelle totally charming. made you feel truely at home. fabulous sheets and bed. everyone who worked there extremel friendly and helpful our best stay in three weeks in morocco. five star!
riad superbe, good location, lovely staff and great food!
A really tiny alley of the medina takes you to the small door of the Dar which leads to an oasis of peace. The dinner at the hotel was wonderful. The owner and staff are really nice and helpful.
The bathroom (including the toilet) and bedroom are a single open space; very nicely decorated but lacking a bit of privacy. Eveb though it must be said that the owners had warned us about this before we booked. The guide recomended by the hotel took us nearly only to shops instead of taking time to show us the medina.
The proprietress of this lovingly restored riad has impeccable taste. The food was excellent. The staff beyond helpful.Take advantage of the reasonable rates now because surely the demand for this place will only increase.
Leaving so soon.
Great place to relax! The staff is always ready to help you around town. And the hostess would sit with you and talk.
Fantastic property, very comfortable and beautifully designed. Hosts were welcoming and helpful, would stay again.
The family was very warm, gracious and helpful, as were the staff. They made us feel very welcome
Everything was equisite! The staff is so wonderful! By far the best experience we had by a hotel staff and we travel a lot. They are very accomidating and help in any way they can. The location couldn't have been more perfect! It's close enough to walk and yet far enough from the chaos of the Medina. The hotel booked a tour of the Medina and an excursion for us. I would definitely stay here again if I return to FES!! EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE had by all!!! :)
These are in no way a real problem at all and should not be considered in making your booking. It's more of a suggestion really. The first is possibly more lighting (brighter) in the "Green Room". The ambience was perfect, but for 4 women getting ready in the morning lighting is essential. The second would be that the bathroom shower clogged up once. It was immediately fixed by Hotel Staff within minutes and never clogged again. Lastly, the wi-fi was not the best in our room, however, when you walk out into the main area the wi-fi was fine. We blame that on the concrete walls though.
The Riad is recently renovated, it is beautiful, a true oasis of peace in the Medina of Fes. The rooms are beautiful, the terrasse is amazing with sunbeds to enjoy an afternoon nap in the shade...The employees are kind and it was a real pleasure to chat with Joelle who tells many stories about Fes and Morocco :) The food is great too: kudos to the cook Loubna: we didn't find a better place for diner! Mostly, we felt at home, in a peaceful and friendly environment! I highly recommend it. Thanks again Joelle and Dar Faracha !
