Fes, Fes-Boulemane Region
Dar Namir is a cooking school with rooms available as a whole house in the heart of the Andalous Quarter of the ancient Fez medina.

Our restoration of it took four years and we have kept as many of the original features as possible in order to show as much of the house's history as possible.

I recently stayed at Dar Namir and realize I have found home and sanctuary in the Fes medina. As a hotelir, I really appreciate Rachida's attention and unobtrusive service, and the fabulous breakfast on the terrace was to languish over, while planning the day's events,...More

About the neighbourhood
Maqfia is in the Andalous Quarter, a quiet neighbourhood famous for it's resplendent, white-washed mosque. Easy to dip in and out of, the central medina where you'll find most of the sights and souks, is less than 10-minutes walk away. Nearby you'll find traditional ferrans (public ovens) where bread is still baked daily, fresh produce markets and plenty of cafes. But if you want to go upmarket there are also riad restaurants for lunch, a sunset drink or a romantic dinner.
