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)
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.
