We had a wonderfull stay in le Calife. Yasmine and her staff are excellent hosts in a charming stylist riad witch could be in magazines like 'Maison' / VT wonen etc. A recommendation for everyone!
Spacious rooms, delicious breakfast, easy to get to. And most importantly, the nicest and most helpful people you could find. It is linked to the Palais Farage, so they organise amazing spa treatments or dinner there really easily.
First of all after a day of travels we felt so welcome by the staff there extremely nice and will do anything for you. The location is great and the riad the nicest we have seen! It even smells wonderfull, the food is amazing and everything spotless clean and thought about. everything matches the lamps,pots,plants, ornaments everything. we can recommend everyone to stay here well worth it!!
The owner loves to share his passion for Fes with his guests. Great ambiance for feeling Riad lifestyle of past era. Staff outstanding. Good location.
Very helpful and welcoming staff including owners. Beautiful building with wonderful decorations. Great location.
Le Calife situated in the Medina, is an amazing secret only to be shared with the closest of friends, it is furnished in a style evocative of Fez in an erewhile era, it sets the scene and allows you to capture the essence of life in a bygone age before enjoying the sites of the Medina which are equally enthralling. Le Calife is both fascinating and thought provoking. After a long day sightseeing, seated in comfortable chairs and sipping a cup of tea and reflecting on the day’s activities in the beautiful garden with its tinkling fountain is both tranquil and soothing. In the evening Yasmin and Alexandre can offer a dinner menu which is both beautifully cooked and presented by their chef in the evocative surroundings of the dining room preceded by drinks in the even more atmospheric bar. The heart of the riad is Yasmine and Alexandre, the owners of this exquisite gem of a riad and their Calife team. Consummate professionals who made our stay with them both comfortable and memorable. 10/10 for atmosphere, excellent food and service. If you like minimalistically furnished white rooms then this is not the place for you.
The rain on one day of our stay.
Everything... Great room, amazing hospitality and overall fantastic experience. We had 6 nights in the Rubis Suite which was gorgeous and the last night were fortunate enough to be given the Diamond Suite by Alex and Yasmine as a wonderful surprise. It was stunning and felt very special... Beautifully decorated and authentically Moroccan. We have already been planning our return!!
Being at Riad Calife was the highlight of our stay in Fes. The large interior courtyard is cool and tranquil and the terrace is magnificent with views over the entire medina. We especially enjoyed dinners on the terrace with lovely food created by the Le Calife chef. Our room was comfortable and very quiet for a great nights sleep and the proprietors Yasmine and Alexandre were extremely welcoming and helpful in organising our time in Fes.
The owners and staff are wonderful, so helpful and kind. The Riad is in a great location and the rooms are beautiful
The owners and staff were first class as were the amenities. Peaceful and relaxing with lovely food.
Beautiful riad with very helpful owners. A wonderful place to return to at the end of each day.
When you walk into the courtyard, it is like leaving the modern world and the bustling medina behind. Alex and Yasmine have thought of everything, from sending the staff to escort you so you don't get lost, to a complimentary glass of kir to their dinner guests.
There's nothing I didn't like. I would move in if I could.
Everything especially the professionalism of the owners, fantastic hosts.
Noisy air conditioning in our room.
The owners were extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions, recommending a guide and help with onward travel. A perfect stay.
Staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful, the iced mint tea on arrival was a very nice touch. The whole hotel had a very authentic feel with out loosing any comfort. All the food was delicious (I highly recommend Fatima's lamb tagine - best meal I had in Morocco). Location was great, inside the medina but just out of the hustle and bustle.
Very hard to fault.
Meals were delicious, room spacious and service excellent. Charming accommodation and excellent location
Entrance is through a building site, not their fault, just a bit off putting, but once you are in the door it is great
Words cannot describe the hospitality and warmth of Yasmine, Alex and Douha. We arrived at the Riad in the afternoon and were welcome by Douha with a lovely mint tea. After checking in she took the time out to explain to us how to get around the town and things we needed to see during our short stay there. The rooms are really quaint and nicely decorated. The riad itself is an oasis where you can relax after a long day. All the staff were helpful and took really good care of us. Yasmine and Alex the owners also came through the next day and welcome us. We had lovely chats with them in terms of what to do, how to shop in the souks and whatever else we wanted to know. They are such genuine people and are excellent ambassadors of their Riad. We also went to dinner at Palais Faraj. Which was excellent. Douha arranged everything for us and we had a super time. We are so grateful for having chosen to stay here. On the day we left we were given water and cookies for energy.
Liked everything about the Riad. The owners and staff are most attentive and helpful. It is clean and beautiful and a treat to visit
hosts (Yasmine, Alexandre, Douae) were exceptionally friendly and engaging. The room was beautifully appointed and included a minibar. Everything was exceptionally clean. The common areas are impeccably restored and look very traditional. The rooftop terrace is an awesome place to have breakfast, dinner, relax and take in the best views of Fes. The cooking class with house chef Fatima was a fantastic addition to our stay.
Having to leave :)
Excellent Riad. We feel like a Calife in this place!!!!
This Riad is lovely. We enjoyed the serenity of the beautiful courtyard and the roof terrace. Our rooms were beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The delightful owners were lovely hosts, greeting us each morning and making sure we were well taken care of, and the staff were all charming and attentive.
The place is great. One of the best boutique hotels I have ever stayed at. Beautiful decor, every detail and an amazing roof top terrace overall exceptional service. Yasmine and Alexandre are great. You feel at home.
A real discovery - an oasis from the bustling medina run by a delightful couple. Ideal location, very comfortable room and good food
Fabulous. Great food.
Fantastic Riad. Great rooms, wonderful hosts. Dinner on arrival was sublime! Best meal we had in Morrocco. Would definitely recommend and would love to return one day.
