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!
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)
The restoration of this historic home is very noteworthy. I felt more like a guest than a customer. The food was exceptional. The staff was friendly and helpful. The owner was kind and well informed about the medina and his Riad.
It didn't bother me but the steps between the floors are substantial. Those with weak knees may want to consider other options.
The place was gorgeous and the staff were really nice!
Okay, so the place is beautiful, but it's what is inside that counts, right?If you are staying in a small riad with only a few rooms, having an annoying owner or aggressive one for that matter can really dampen your stay. That's what happened to me. Straight from the get-go the owner was a bit of a character. He tried to be nice but was constantly on a mission to get you to do something, acknowledge him or take note of the important people that have stayed at his riad. He loves to google the famous people from your home country that have stayed with him and have you stare at them for a minute or two. What made me the most turned off however was that he raised his voice at me and constantly interrupted. Travelling solo as a female in Morocco, I never had an issue with the men at my hotel, in fact I always had great service wherever it was I went in Morocco. Sometimes I would encounter staff who gave me a bit too much attention, but hey it's Morocco, deal with it. However, this time the owner led me to not leave my room in the evening and made me not want to go to the common areas where he would be. While staying to do work in the common area I witnessed guests check-in and him pressuring them into dinners and activates that were exorbitantly priced before they had a chance to work out the conversion. He said they must tell him right away and that there was no time for waiting. There were other very minor issues, but nothing that would denote a terrible rating. For example: -I called to have someone meet me to bring me through the maze of alleys through the medina to the riad. The confirmation email told me to do this so I did, no one answered. I usually have no trouble finding my way, so no big deal. People were extremely generous to point me in the right direction. I would stop to speak with them, flash them a smile and they were just as kind back showing me where to go. When I arrived though the owner said I didn't call him.
Riad is very beautiful. Food is exellent, salute to mama Fatima who prepared it. also the sevice is great thanks to Mariam, great hello to her
Decoration was very nice. People were very nice and friendly, they helped to packed our breakfast as we need to check out early. They also sent us small gift from Morocco! Dinner at the roof top terrace was a very nice experience too! The food was very very delicious, especially the Moroccan salad, and the banana spring roll. A must try!
Beautiful building, unique rooms with modern comforts. Great value for money and outstanding hospitality. The team were so helpful and the welcome could not have been better!
The location, it's impressive ! It was by far the best thing about it. The food was very good as well, Mama Fatima cooks very well. Our room was lovely, the level of detail in the mosaics and decorations, was just incredible. The guided tour is nice, doesn't last a day as its said to but it's nice. Breakfast was very good.
Didn't feel that safe, sometimes they were a bit pushy and not transparent.. if you get a guide, don't bother asking if he'll bring a car, you won't get an answer but you will find out that the best way to get an idea of the town is to rent a taxi for a couple of hours. Wouldn't have minded if it would have been said from day 1. If you receive a pair of slippers, expect to be obliged to leave an excellent review of your stay... we would have honestly left a good review since the stay was overall very pleasant but to have someone push your ipad for you, clicking "Excellent", that's just abusive in my opinion (on a different site of course).
The Riad is very beautiful and restored immaculately. It is very comfortable, quiet and safe for solo travellers, and such a wonderful place to stay. Service was great and staff (Faysal and Hussan) were kind and helpful. Faysal invited me to lunch with his family one day, which was a great experience. Breakfast was delicious and served in the beautiful courtyard, a great way to start the day. Wifi was ok, better on the ground floor. The views from the deck on the roof were fantastic.
The guide that the Riad organised didn't help my understanding of the layout of the medina (although asked, he wouldn't help me find a map), wouldn't allow me to look at shops that he didn't take me to, and pushed me to purchase at the shops he did take me to. When I asked him to please de-commercialise the tour, he got very annoyed. I informed Faysal of this experience, and he told me that they will not use him again.
We arrived and were met by Saleem, who gave us the history of this riad, very interesting.Asked if there was anything he could do for us and we asked for laundry, a tour of the medina and a tour to Volubilis. Laundry was done that day, the following morning an official tour guide, Mohammed took us on a tour of the city and the medina, long day but perfect. We were taken to the carpet shop and pottery shop etc but we expected that and bought or not as we decided. Mohammed also had an excellent knowledge of the medina and its history and was happy to share and easy to speak to. The next morning we had a driver and van take us to Volubilis, the driver had limited english but we had a great time. The staff at the riad looked after us like family. We cannot praise Faizal, Hassan high enough, no request was too difficult. Mama Fatimah's cooking excellent, we were well and truly spoiled. The best place to stay if you wish to get into the spirit of Fes.
Having to leave!
Being welcomed with Delicious home-made pastries and natural orange juice. Wide well equipped covered terrace. The FES room (2nd floor) is comfortable and airy (roof is open during the hot summer). Bathroom does have bad smell.
If you stay just 1 night, it's difficult to go out by yourself. You just stay in, and admire the stunning surroundings. Lots of stairs but corridor well lit.
Hassan, the bell boy was really helpful all throughout our stay. The interior of the riad was wonderful! We loved the mosaic design patterns in the room as well as in the common area.
It's in the middle of the crazy medina.
nice rooms, friendly staff, good breakfast; Good dinner, Hasan en Faysal are very willing to help you, very beautiful riad, street side a little bit noisy in the evening
there is no elevator and steps are high, people less mobile should ask a room at the groundfloor.
The wifi was good. Dinner was good, but it was a lot of food for one person, so I would have liked a cheaper meal that was smaller. The inside of the building was very pretty.
The location was hard to get to. The building is full of really steep, tall stairs. If you are older or have issues with steps, you would not be able to stay here.
An impressive moroccan decorationin side the whole building. Nice roof view and dining.
Owner resisted issuing a receipt after receiving full rent payment, saying its not necessary. After we insisted, he wrote it on a piece of paper w/o any business name or stamp on it. Some bad smell can be noticed in side the building. Don't request the expensive roasted lamb meal, it doesn't worth it. Their bottled water tasted bad, try to give it a miss.
Staff were very helpful both through email and then in person. They got in touch the day before and explained how to take a taxi and provided a phone contact to call for directions before departing train station. It's a zig zag foot path to get to hotel. A staff member waited by the square and guided me through. The Moroccan tea with cookies I had when I got to hotel was the best I had during my 2 week stay in Morocco (thank you Elahssan). They also arranged for an on time 5:00 am departure when I left.
For those who don't like stairs (steps have high risers) or walking through narrow pedestrian walkways, you may find your stay challenging! Otherwise staying at a 'Riyad' a nice change to the typical hotel stay, especially if for 2-3 days :-)
Beautiful surroundings and lovely rooftop terrace. Genuinely friendly and helpful younger staff.
Older male staff seemed unfriendly and not genuine. We were strongly encouraged to commit to a tour of the medina at the end of a long day of travelling. The tour guide was basically trying to get us to buy exorbitanly expensive goods from tourist traps. I wanted to buy from the many stalls selling a myriad of different things but was told that the opportunity for buying would come later. Later turned out to be the tourist traps which I refused to buy from. The sad thing was that I could have easily spent money supporting the many hardworking businesses but was actively prevented from doing so by a corrupt and greedy system which appears to be heavily embedded.
The rooms are beautiful and the common area attractive and comfortable. Finding the Riad is challenging as it is deep into the Medina although posted signs are helpful. The staff were supportive to pick me up at a central location. Steps to the rooms would be difficult for someone with ambulatory issues. I loved the tile and attention to detail.
Location made it difficult at night.
Everything was great - very hospitable. Beautiful Riad! Just a comment for elderly- the stairs are very steep and narrow to climb. Fine for us but could be a problem for elderly or infirm
Evening meal and wine expensive compared to other places
Localization, clean Comfortable room , historical riad , perfect Dinner, good Breakfast ,kind personal
Guided city tour recommended by Thé riad , in General they dont wanted credit cards moracco
From the moment our driver dropped us in Fez where we were met by staff from the Riad, we felt completely safe and well taken care of. This Riad is a work of art - beautifully restored and gorgeously decorated. Our room, the Fatima Suite, was beautifully decorated, large, clean, comfortable, quiet and a lovely bathroom. I can't ask for more in a room. The Moroccan breakfasts were hearty, well presented and tasty. We had dinner on the terrace two of the evenings. As we are light dinner diners - we ordered the Moroccan salad which was more than we could eat - and so good we ordered it the second night too. Hicham, the owner, took very good care of us - he took us on a tour of the city our first day, explaining much of the history and color of Fez. We felt like family. He kept checking to make sure we were enjoying our stay and wanting to know if there was anything he or the staff could do. The Riad arranged a driver for us to Casablanca for our flight home, so that we were able to visit Meknes and Volubilous on the way. On the day of our departure, Hicham presented me (Susan) with a beautiful pair of slippers embroidered with the Eye of Fatima. What a lovely gesture. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return!
The Riad is out stunning with fine decor and details. Quite central in the medina but not easy to find without a guide. Nice view from the terrace Staff is kind and helpfull
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at Riad Rcif. The riad was gorgeously restored, we enjoyed great meals and a welcoming and attentive staff that wanted to make sure we had a good stay.
I think this is much more of a cultural thing, but a lot of the shops/cooperatives we were taken to on the advice of our riad seemed designed to rip off tourists. Obviously no one forced us to buy anything, but the culture of that and the facade of showing us 'good deals' really did not sit well with me as it left me feeling taken advantage of. I think with a little more transparency it could have been a perfect stay.
Riad Rcif is one of the most ornately decorated buildings I have ever visited. The beautiful courtyard is lined with colourful Moroccan tiles and carvings. Cedar wood is used throughout the building which lends a nice natural smell. The rooftop courtyard is a nice place to relax after a busy day. We enjoyed just spending time in the Riad enjoying the decoration. It's rare to be able to say that we wanted to spend time in our hotel when on holidays in an exotic country...
