This is a beautifully restored home. The owner Nathalie gave excellent advice and help in managing our stay. We loved the house, it was very tastefully renovated, clean, spacious with lots of bathrooms and a wonderful roof terrace where we enjoyed breakfast every morning. We had two evening meals in the house and they were prepared by the hosts and were excellent. The 4 day trip we did was brilliant and included a day at Hamman (Nausiskaa), a guided tour of the medina, a day trip to Meknes and Volubilis and a lazy day at Dar El Mandar. This is more than a B& B you get first class help from the owners who will help you organise the things you want .

We stayed at Dar Babel for few days in September 2015. It was our first time in Fes and what a great experience it was!! We visited several Moroccan cities in the past and really didn’t know what to expect of Fes. Thanks to the hospitality of Nathalie and Didier, the hosts of Dar Babel, we discovered real gem of a city in Morocco. Not only is the riad a great place to stay, the hosts also gave us excellent advice on what to do and where to go (or not to go). Dar Babel it’s clearly the best riad experience we had thus far in Morocco and best value for money. The place must’ve been renovated recently; it’s spotlessly clean, very well decorated in Moroccan style but with personal touches. The whole place is very local, very romantic yet practical. We loved the thick white towels in the bathroom and halogen lights near the mirrors and beds – a practical touch that’s rare in Moroccan style hotels and riads. The open rooftop makes the riad bright and airy during the day and romantic and airy during the evenings. And as if that was not enough, we enjoyed our time on the roof’s terrace and patio: imagine eating your dinner under the stars regardless if your table is inside or outside! That’s exactly what we did almost every evening enjoying the fabulous cooking of Kharissa and Abdelzargh.
5 stars experience which I definitely recommend to anyone.
