“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The house is lovely and really quite spacious. We particularly enjoyed the carved stonework and woodwork of the doors and it certainly had a lot of character and very pretty basins in the bathrooms. It must be very cool in the summer but in March we found the main dining sitting area a little bit too cold. The owner is really super and all contact with her was very positive and she was very keen to help.
For me the two negatives were its location. It seemed that all the restaurants and cafes that we wanted to go to were far away from where we were living and this posed a problem as we were advised not to walk through the Medina after 10 PM at night. Restaurants often offer a service whereby they will come and walk you to them. Although regrettably one night we had booked a restaurant and they couldn't find us. Don't underestimate what a culture shock Fez is. We are very well travelled but still felt a little helpless in the Medina as it really is a labyrinth and street signs are in Arabic and it can be quite difficult to be autonomous and find your way around. The only supermarket selling wine or beer is a taxi ride away.

The second point I have to make is that the contract says that Amina does two hours cleaning per day. We found this not to be the case. during the total time we stayed there she did not once clean the bathroom or the toilets, and many of the days she didn't make the beds. We would return in the evening to find the kitchen table which we had always cleared up had not even been wiped over. it still had breakfast to crumbs on it. And the bin bags would just pile up in the kitchen. When she did the washing up she would just do it and leave it draining on the sideboard but she didn't dry up and put it away. In fact the quality of her washing up was such that we ended up doing most of the washing up ourselves because we were not happy finding bits of food stuck between two plates when we went to get clean plates from the cupboard. I actually don't expect a cleaner in a rented accommodation on a daily basis. But I think if it is included that she should do her job properly and I think it's important that the owner realises that she isn't.
We understood to that we would have use of the telephone but this was not organised while we were there and for information the television, (not that it mattered to us) only has local television programs. Normally I don't expect or use a telephone on holiday but it did seem to pose a problem when people couldn't find our holiday home to fetch us and things like that.

“Large beautiful riad in the Medina.”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A very nice rental with a very helpful manager. The riad was quite large and well kept. Amina, the property manager's wife, is a wonderful cook.

“Amazing morrocan experience!”
Reviewed 13 July 2012 for a stay in August 2010
1
person found this review helpful

I stayed at this riad with a friend for one week in 2010 and it has been an amazing experience. It was even better than we had expected it to be, we felt like in a little palace hidden in the deep of a medina. Each room is just beautiful and it has a great rooftop from where you can see the whole medina.
Not only the Riad was nice, but also the people working and taking care of the place, I can't remember their names but they were very friendly and she makes the best moroccan dishes and meant-tea that I have ever tried!

I highly recommend the place, it is spacious, clean, quiet, beautiful and very well located.
