Interaction with guests
Once you have confirmed your booking and made your final payment, I will send you not only the address but a file which contains useful maps and information which will allow you to plan your stay.
When you arrive at the Medina, our House Manager will meet you, give you the keys and a quick tour of the house; if there is anything specific you want eg. help arranging a guide, help with a taxi back to the airport etc. then please ask otherwise ......we leave you to enjoy the medina at your own pace for your stay.
We ask that you leave the house by 11 am at the latest (to allow us to prepare it for the next guests), please can you leave the keys next to the wi-fi hub and close the front door securely behind you.

Abdulillah (House Manager) met us at R'Cif and escorted us to the door. He showed us around and explained all the details, and local highlights. It is a beautiful little house, traditionally restored with a "western" bias (WC's etc.).Delightful roof terrace, with far reaching views over the ancient city, and many a happy hour can be spent lounging and watching...

I am glad that the location of the house was good. I am sorry that the socket of the induction plate was damaged, we do try to check the equipment but sometimes we do miss things. Guides in the medina are regulated by the tourist council, I will ask my House Manager to pass on your feedback.

About the neighbourhood
We are located within the ancient Medina (old walled city). Approximate walking times from the Riad to various attractions are as follows:-
Less than 5 minutes – R’Cif market
Less than 10 minutes - Tannery and Quarwiyine mosque
About 20 minutes – Bab Boujlouad and Batha Museum
Having said all of that …..you are unlikely to walk directly to any of these as you would brows at market stalls, pause for photo’s and probably stop for coffee en-route (café clock is fantastic for camel burgers and cakes!).
Getting around
There are always many “petit” taxis at Bab R'Cif (the closest entrance to our house), these are normally red (and take a maximum of 3 people, they are licensed to operate within Fez City). Most journeys cost less than 80Dhr however the amount is on a meter. You should ensure that the meter is reset to zero before you start your journey.
If you want to go outside the city then you should take a grand taxi, these are normally white. You should negotiate the fare BEFORE you get into the taxi alternatively ......ask our house manager for a quotation for a journey.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Fez: 15.0 km
Railway: Fez: 5.0 km
If you would like us to arrange transport this is possible for an additional fee.

If you are arriving by yourself you should ask the taxi to take you to the cinema at Bab R’Cif,  (pronounced “bab err-ceef”), this is known by all of the taxi drivers and about 5 minutes walk. We recommend that you should telephone our House Manager (Abdel Illha) when you get into the taxi and pass the telephone to the driver so that he can give specific directions and co-ordinate your arrival. Abdel Illah will meet you at Bab R'Cif and guide you to the house , give you the keys and give you a short tour or the house.
