    riad has seen better days, needs an upgrade. bathrooms are not good at all, bedding and towels were bad, although they did give us slightly better towels.

    nice location if you want to be in the medina, lovely friendly staff. nice breakfast, cosy courtyard. h

    The bathroom was quite old and needs some restoration. The towels were very old.

    Nice riad in the medina of Fès. The riad has a very small pool which you cannot really call a pool, but there is one. The hosts are really nice and helped us with the booking of our tour through Morocco. Our room was very spacious, the breakfast is okay. In Morroco you always have the same basic breakfast, don't expect fruit.

    Old, run down Riad. Bathroom was dirty. Cook conned us into an over paid evening meal. €15 per person, but they served 1 portion size to 2 adults and a child and charged us all full price. Be caution... go out and enjoy your food in the Medina.

    Location was right in the middle of the Medina. Nice easy breakfast.

    The owner could invest in basic necessities. New towel,secure Electrical switches. Secure toilet seat. Basic fire and safety alarms. Rooms could be kept ventilated even if not occupied.

    Friendly and family like welcome. Head of staff goes a long way to help and ensure everything is in place.

    We booked Riad Youssef through internet.
    • Leisure trip

    late breakfast hour first day.

    We booked Riad Youssef through internet. Our first trip to Morocco and our third Riad this holiday. We had arrived at the railway station and called the Riad about taxi fares and let them speak to our taxi driver to be sure we'd reach the place. A big relieve that the lady who answered the phone spoke English very well. The welcome was very friendly, with tea and a clear explanation in English on how to fill our form. This is the first form we filled correct, when entering Morocco you receive a stamp with a number in your passport and this number should be qouted on the hotel/riad registry form. We were told to have breakfast at 09:00 which we found quite late to start our day, but.. when we came down in the morning at 08:50 other people had already finished their breakfast. My husband and i received our coffee promptly, the girls had to wait for their tea for more than 20 minutes. If one states to be down for breakfast at 09:00, it should be ready immediaetly one should think. The bext day however, breakfast was ready at the hour we had asked because we had to leave to the airport on time. The manager called out taxi to confirm the pick up. All in all, this riad is a nice place. Direct acces to the Medina, Carrfour, Palace and Sibl gardens in walking distance. Quiet sleep. Hot water available too ! Little overprized compared to the other 2 riad's we stayed.

    Pool was cool but in need of attention. Needed lights and a touch of paint.

    Amazing historical Riad, stunning renovation of over 1000 year old building in Medina. Bedrooms and mezzanine were stunning.
