The hospitality and food.
The room did not have great ventilation when using the shower.
friendly and quiet ambiance. staff forthcoming. a clean and nicely decorated room. overall service and the breakfast was good. on our request we were served dinner twice. good tradtional moroccan food. during our stay (februay) there not many nearby reataurants open. many young moroccans keep following you and insisting to the level of irritation and in one case they werehostile. another reason why we preferred to enjoy another meal at the riad. this "service" we know is offered all over north africa and ..... yet this time they went to our very limit.
less to do with the guesthouse. yet the access to the Riad is rather complicated through narrow little dark and dirty roads. some people might feel somewhat unsafe particularly during nighttime it is even more difficult to find. we managed. yet this might be a problem for somehat unsecure guests to return to riad at night. you may need a torce.
Riad Tara made our stay in Fes amazing! All the staff was great and they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Would highly recommend this spot to anyone staying in Fes.
Decent location, adorable room and bathroom, cute common space, plenty of hot water, the two women who worked there were very friendly with the younger woman being extremely helpful and sweet, the owner offered to give us breakfast at 6:00AM so we could have something to eat before our early morning train
I feel as if the owner overcharges for certain services. We took him up on an offer of a driver walking to our riad to pick us up to escort us to his car, driving us to dinner, driving us back, and then walking us to the riad since it is easy to get lost and the alleys feel a bit unsafe after dark. We paid way more than we should have for it, and after waiting for over 30 minutes after having the restaurant call our driver to come pick us up, we finally left because we assumed he was no longer coming. When we told the owner the next day and gave him the money to give to the driver for the one way trip, he responded 'oh no problem!' with a big smile, when in reality it was a huge problem for us and a good business man wouldn't have had us pay for bad service. We had agreed to have him call a cab for us to pick us up the next morning since our train was so early. Again, he charged way more than a cab should have been, the driver didn't even come to the door to take our bags, and he was late. The raid also booked us a 'great' tour guide to show us around for a half day so we could spend less time getting lost and more time seeing things. The guide was okay but not worth it, and was more concerned with taking us to places to shop, and telling us 'we don't understand' when we politely refused his offer of going to a pottery shop.
Friendly and quiet. If you don't feel like going out in the evening, the food is excellent. Jim the proprietor is on site in the evenings and nothing is too much trouble for his assistant, Ibtisam. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
very friendly staff; speak English and French; helped us arrange everything (arrival, departure, dinners, guides etc.)
driver at arrival was 30min late; bathroom has no doors to the main room we're staying at
The riad is lovely and small. The staff is superlative. Cannot say enough good things about helpfulness and friendliness. Similarly, the place is spotless and the heating works really well (this was an issue in some other riads we stayed in in Morocco). Our room was gorgeous. It's obvious a lot of thought has gone into the details.
I think the only slight drawback is if you want to go to get a petit taxi, which you do by descending into the place Rcif of Fes, which just seems a bit farther than one would like. But any taxi will take you within 200 m (maybe it's even closer). I also think that the breakfasts could be a bit heartier: they were in some of the other riads. At the same time, the food is very, very good.
Lovely hotel deep inside the Medina which we found with the help of GPS after we parked on the edge of the Marina. We were warmly welcomed into the lovely little courtyard by the very friendly proprietor Jim and his wife and the staff and shown to two really nice rooms inside this lovingly restored Riad. Ours was a double and our adult sons had a triple with one bed tucked away in a loft. The rooms were comfortable and breakfast the next morning consisted of fluffy french toast, pancakes and coffee. Jim and the staff gave us excellent tips as to what to see in the Medina. We really felt very comfortable and well-looked after in this charming Riad which I would recommend highly without hesitation or reservation. If we ever go back to Fez (which we will for sure) we will stay here again.
Nothing, but a sign with the name of the Riad would help guests who don't have GPS to help them get there.
The house has a lot of potential, but has been somewhat neglected the past months. It looks better on the pictures than in reality. Extra decoration has since been added but to no purpose in my opinion, actually making the overall impression overloaded and chaotic and visionless : too many things on the walls, too many plants and pots in the central courtyard, neglected plants and sunbeds on the (otherwise great) rooftop terrace... But good breakfast, nice music in the breakfast area, good wifi, clean and spacious rooms, nice hostess, nice (local) personnel.
I did not like the location. To get to a taxi or car you had no other choice but to pass a dirty, neglected and unsafe neighbourhood. Going into the opposite direction meant being immediately engulfed in the claustrofobic maze of streets (Fez old town) and thus inevitably getting lost in no time. The host tries to turn this into his advantage by each day asking you whether you want to have dinner there or not. If you actually prefer to explore other (cheaper) places to eat, you really need all your courage and perseverance to wander through those streets in the dark ! We did not like the patronizing way in which the host treated his personnel. 1 of the taps in the bathroom did not work. Incredibly hard beds !
