With a mix of traditional Moroccan arquitecture, design and modern technology our stunning Riad Hostel is located in the exciting Medina of Fes with easy access for taxis and car parking in a safe neighborhood, close to Batha Fountain. The views from the roof terraces are simply mind blowing and you can see all the way to the Merenid Tombs. All rooms have reversible AC/ Heating and the wifi is fiber optic and very fast. The Riad is social and busy and predominantly caters for under 40s - the vibe is fun, upbeat and we regularly hold events and activities. Noise carries in the Riad old building so we are not suitable if you are looking for a silent retreat or are a mature family with children. Our aim is affordable budget tourism and we serve the best brunch on the terrace in Morocco included in the price from 09:30 Riad Verus also regularly serves a family dinner for all the guests to come together on the roof top terrace with views of the Medina and in Winter in the traditional arabesque courtyard. In the evenings the guests enjoy playing cards or board games or smoking a sheisha in the terrace lounge areas. The multilingual team at Riad Verus can help organize activities such as camel trekking in the Sahara desert, day trips to Chefchaoen, Meknes, Middle Atlas, Airport transfers and Medina walking tours with great guides. We have 8 bedrooms in total and 3 of them are dorms. The fine print details tourism restrictions for unmarried couples (where one or both is muslim) and dorms are exclusively for international tourists in order to comply with the law. If you are muslim you will need to present your marriage certificate; If you are both not muslim this rule does not apply to you. Moroccans or Algerians due to the strict hospitality laws of cosharing rooms are prohibited from booking this property. All guests must provide their working whatsapp number and correct postal code and nationality of the passport entering Morocco and all reservations will be authorized before arrival, if you fail the check the reservation will be canceled.

This is our guests' favorite part of Fez, according to independent reviews.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.

Riad Verus has been welcoming guests since Dec 13, 2010

Host Review Score

Riad Verus is a fun property ran by a young management team who want their guests to feel relaxed and stress free in Fes. We are a fun vibrant property and the vibe is upbeat. The property is so beautiful and we have loads of activities and tours and excursions that can be set up in advance and on the spot at concierge. If you want a real authentic time in Morocco this place is about as good as it gets!
We have a very friendly staff who aim to please and for whom nothing is too much trouble to ensure our guests feel looked after and happy
We are in the Batha Douh Neighbourhood. One of the safest quarters in Fes and close to taxi drop offs and there is a car park at Om El Banine.
