Salim and his family were exceptional in making me feel at home. Their Riad is beautiful.
Riad RCIF is a restored palace and I truly felt I was staying in one. The staff was very kind. I wish I could recall the porter's name but he was so sweet and helpful as was everyone else. Don't be fooled by the identical twin brothers who manage the place! Moma, gave me a pair of babouches as a gift when I left. I highly recommend Riad RCIF - it is an amazing place!!!
Hassan and Maria are the main workers and would do anything for you but are not appreciated by the owners. Breakfast is plentiful. Dinner is too big and too pricey. Rooms are spacious and comfortable.
On arrival, just wanted some down time not the whole history of the riad from the owner. Felt uncomfortable around the owners. Very manipulative. Owners we not happy we had organised our own tours. We were told not to trust anyone in Fes and we felt that about the owners as well. Inside the riad it is very clean and comfortable but step outside the riad in amongst filth, feral cats and clearly very bored locals. Would not recommend this place
If there is any riad that will bring you back in time and make you feel like a proper Moroccan nobility. A refurbished palace from the 8th century with a magnificent view of the surrounding valleys, absolutely fabulous interior packed with intricate mosaics, wood carvings and delicately carved brass metal lamps throughout. On top of this, amazing service and hamman experience that is out of this world.
A little bit hard to find among the narrow winding alleys of Fez, but just ask anyone at the Riad square and they will help you find it.
Stunning Riad inside the medina. Need to be met at the gates as it is difficult to find at first. Good food and terrace views. Owner very persuasive and will try to get you to go with one of his guides to the co-ops for the " best" deals!! Apparently this Riad is an old palace and certainly beautiful to stay in.
in the center of the medina, but with the signs it is easy to find, otherwise we would have got lost ;-) ... you really get a feeling of the Medina of Fes there; exactly like on the pictures, it is a beautiful Riad and we loved it; breakfast was great; we tried hamam in the Riad, and can warmly recommend it; we also booked a guide for a tour through the Medina, price an tour were quiet ok, and we would do it again
Old architecture of the riad. Staff was helpful.
We stayed in a room for three - my son travelled with us. The bathroom access is via a steep staircase, very inconvenient. Location is deep and twist and turn in the medina - not easy access. Owner not sincere in the interest of guest - be wary of recommendation given for restaurant or guide. Check prices before agreeing to restaurant and guide service so referred to 'teacher' or 'historian' by owner take you to more shops than historic places
If you want to feel like royality or to experience the atmosphere "One Thousand One Nights" story, Riad Rcif fits you. Beautiful interiors, clean rooms and very pleasant staff. Don't miss this opportunity.
eccellent riad. eccellent staff. Everyone was extra nice- Salim, Miriam and especially Hassan who was the sweetest and seemed to be there always , just in case you need something. we needed to leave early in the morning (6:30) for the sahara. they got a porter for us. Hassan was awake on time to help us with the luggage, made sure the porter was on time. He packed breakfast for us, walked us to the car and ran to the bakery to buy fresh bread for the way. We were really overwhelmed by his kindness. thank you so much, hassan!
Hisham and his staff were incredible from the moment they met us at the medina's entrance. They emailed ahead of time to help us with directions and had a porter there to bring us straight to the hotel. They were able to accommodate all of our requests, including laundry, alcohol, etc. The views from the rooftop are wonderful and the food was excellent. The cook, Fatima, created fresh authentic meals for breakfast and dinner, always with a little variety. I'm going to miss the delicious Moroccan salads. Hisham was also very helpful with arranging reasonably priced tours and even advised us on shipping gifts back home (which saved us a ton of money). I would highly recommend this Riad and will definitely stay in it if I ever go back.
I stayed in a single room and it was a little bit dark at times.
Clean and spacious room, good bath, tv, good food
Some street noise. Ithink I was overcharged for room based on price,i was charged 2000 dirhams for 2 nights,on line price was about210 usd for 2 nights
This hotel has been beautifully restored and is truly magnificent in its attention to detail. We had a meal on the roof top restaurant which was of a good standard, it was a joy to look over the city.
we struggled to find a place to pop out and have quick food of any kind of quality, hotel were unable to recommend any decent retaurants. We resorted in the end to going by taxi to new city and finding food there.
The staff - excellent service, eager to please and VERY hardworking The terrace with overview of medina - perfect for listening to the call to prayer. The renovation of the riad
Rooms smelt of moth balls - suggest they use something else! Obligatory introduction to history of building on arrival when all you wanted to do was go to the toilet and settle in.
The Hotel is beautiful. I found that when I stepped off the dirty and busy streets of the medina I could relax in peace and quiet and a lovely atmosphere. I stayed on the top floor at the roof terrace level, so the room didn't have much of a view but If I walked a few metres out the door onto the general terrace you had an amazing view right across the city. They had chills out drying in the sun to turn into Paprika, a pet Turtle that hangs out on the terrace and the Wifi is accessible everywhere. The food is perhaps the only thing better than the hotel itself. The breakfast and dinner I ate were absolutely amazing. Simple and very flavourful. The mother does the cooking and they eat what they cook for us and it's fantastic. The staff (Hassan) couldn't be more attentive. I was on my own and felt safe and comfortable while at this hotel.
In saying my praises for the hotel, there are also some other things I feel need to be said. I thought there would be a tourist desk for me to discuss what I wanted to see while in the city but literally within 4 minutes of my arrival the owner made a phone call to a tourist centre-official guide (who I assume he uses a lot) to take me out immediately for a fee. It turns out he was very knowledgeable he took me out walking through the medina without hassle from locals and I took all the photos I wanted. Then he said he would come back the next day to tae me around again which I felt happy with. However he only wanted to take me to shops this time and when he realised I did not want to spend my life savings on carpets, leather and argan oil he left me in favour of other people he could show around and get commission for, telling me that If I didn't want to go to anymore shops he was going back to the office to collect people waiting who wanted to shop. I was left on my own from there and it wasn't a great afternoon, very overwhelming as a 27-yr old female that didn't speak the language. It was a battle to find the hotel again and a taxi back was a nightmare, I didn't have a phone for internet as I expected to be accompanied for the day and escorted back to the hotel. So, while the hotel was nice, I wonder If I wouldn't have had a different experience of Fes if the hotel didn't arrange a shopping-expedition and instead arranged something I would have liked to do. I was a bit disappointed about that. Just be prepared that in Morocco generally you usually end up doing what they want you to do instead of war you want to do, either through a miscommunication or they are directly pushing you to do it and it's easier or you have no other choice at the time. And they demand money for everything. I tipped the guide and he hassled me for more of a tip even. They are very pushy and forward. Just prepare yourself!
Beautifully restored old building from 14th century. Strong and reliable wifi, good breakfest, friendly staff. Good description of how to reach the riad provided with staff sent to the taxi upon my arrival to show me the way/help with luggage as otherwise the riad impossible to find. If back to Fes I will choose the riad again.
Riad is quite far from Bab Boujloud where the souks and most attractions are however after you get use how to navigate in the media it is no problem at all.
The interiors are stunning. Also, the staff was helpful and brought to the riad, within 30 minutes, an english-speaking guide when we realized we wouldn't be able to find our way in Fès on our own.
The riad misses a little bit of professionalism. It could have at least two other employees, focusing on knowledge of the city and language skills, to provide better support for the guests. Fès is a labyrinth with huge hassle for tourists and some questions I asked about the city upon arrival didn't get a clear answer. Also, depending on how many guests are having breakfast at the time you leave your room, you might have to wait for someone to free the available tables before you can have your morning coffee too.
the decoration, the tiling, the carving the lobby the room the roof terrace the breakfasts the staff, Maria and Hassan
The food was fantastic.
We were never quite sure when the owner was being genuine or manipulative. His stories were very inconsistent and we got the strong sense he thought of the guests as 'dumb tourists' ready to be fleeced. He didn't like it when we organised our own tour guide or activities. The location of the Riad was tricky to find and not near any restaurants, so options for going out at night were very limited. Wouldn't recommend it.
The Riad is a gorgeously restored building which was a feast for the eyes. The lobby is breathtaking as are the rooms. The location couldn't be better. We used the spa and had a great Turkish bath.
The restaurant is expensive.
Friendly helpful staff Great rooms Wonderful WiFi Breakfast excellent Terrace view amazing!
Guide I was set up with was not so great - unless you just want to shop!
The owner emailed before we arrived and explained what to do once we left the train station. Our cab driver phoned him once we were on our way and Hicham (the owner) met us and escorted us to his riad. After snacks and tea Hicham took us on a tour by walking an in his car to see Fes. He then arranged a tour guide who was also fantastic. We saw as much of Fes as was possible in a few short hours. Dinner was on the roof top terrace and was also very good. After a good sleep we were served a quick breakfast before heading to the train station to depart for Marrakech. He arranged for a driver to pick us up at the train station and then show us around Marrakech the following day. We could not have been more pleased. The riad is beautiful and everyone was extremely nice.
The staff - the beautiful girl Mariam is so kind to us!The house is so amazing!The owner of the hotel gave us a little gift when we left but it was a big surprise!Thanks for all this friendly people!
This is the best riad in Morocco (along our trip we stayed also in Riad Zyo-Rabat, Riad Zahra-Essouira, Riad Selouane -Marrackech). In Rcif we were like in the Arabic Fairytale, breakfast was excellent, the was free maroc mint tea in the evening, the terrase was amazing!!! Thanks very much for the owners for their kindness and smiles!
The Riad was beautifully restored and decorative in the traditional Moroccan style. Family run Riad with that personal touch. The food was so good we ate in the Riad the 3 nights we were there! The rooms were individually decorated and so comfortable..would recommend this Riad in Fes as its an experience in itself. Nestled in the old media down a maze of old narrow lanes. Wonderful!
Nothing Not to like
Location. Ornate interior. Helpful junior staff.
Wine overpriced compared to anywhere else on our tour. Limited privacy in ground floor rooms. Surcharge for use of credit card (again only place on our tour)
