Poor 2.0
Dangerous people, beware.
Be very careful with this place. The owner works in conjunction with unofficial “guides” who take you to the medina and make hefty commissions on overpriced artisan items. The Riad itself, while aesthetically pleasing on first glance, is severely run down. It smells of mold, is full of huge roaches and has a lot of cosmetic damage and disrepair. Their website advertises a 60 euro massage and hamman as well as childcare. Upon my appointment I learned that there is no childcare and was charged 70 euro (mind you my children were in the room throughout treatment, not exactly the relaxing hour I had planned). The “massage therapist” is not trained and lacks understanding of human anatomy or basic massage technique. The icing on the cake happened after checkout. I prepaid for my 3 night stay over $319. I paid my overcharged 70 euro roach infested spa experience, I requested and paid my final bill after breakfast of over $75 (and conveniently their credit card machine was not working, welcome to Fes). I used her driver to depart. She had the driver pull over on the side of the road with 2 other men and hold my children and I hostage for 40 minutes until she arrived demanding money she claimed I owed her. They would not let us go until I paid her a lousy $30. Her driver then demanded our U.S. passports at which point things took a bigger turn for the worse. I have a case filed against all the people involved including the Riad owner who orchestrated the event. Dangerous people.

Good food and service
Riad Arabesque was overall a nice Riad. We really enjoyed the food and service during our stay. We had dinner there our first night which was delicious and huge portions, as well as the complimentary breakfast each day which was superb. The cleanliness left a little to be desired, I think a combination of laundry by hand and age of the hotel make it seem less clean than it really is. We also had a cockroach in our tub, but the house is more than a 100 years old and you’re in the middle of the Medina, so that could probably happen anywhere. We booked a double room, not realizing that it didn’t mean just a double size bed, but two rooms. Only the room with the two twin beds had an ac where as the room with a king did not and we were very hot. They were kind and brought us a second fan which definitely helped. The service and owners were lovely.

Over priced. Difficult to find. Very good service but very expensive for what you get. No shower no water in room. Good location next to madina and tannery

英語が不自由なことを英語で悪口を言われた。 Wi-fiの繋がりが悪い。 部屋のテレビも使えない。 ただ、部屋やホテルの立地は良い。 朝食も美味しい。 ホテルからの眺めが良い フェズ観光での疲れをホテルで癒すことができる。

リヤドアラベスク周辺はあまり観光地チックではなく、場所を探すのに苦労する。 フェズからのツアーを利用するときは便利かもしれないが。 暗い時間にチェックイン予定の場合は避けた方が良いかもしれない。 オーナーはちょっと怖めだけど優しい方。ハーブティーは絶品。英語は通じるようで理解してない感じ。 バスタブがあるのに栓がない。ディナーはまぁまぁ美味しいがちょっと高い。

Scschönes Haus, gute lage, mehr leider nicht
Das Riad ist sehr schön und gut gelegen mit auto gut erreichbar,jedoch ist zu viel in die Hose gegangen als das wir es empfehlen könnten. Am tag vor Anreise schrieben wir eine e-mail für die adresse vom Parkplatz fürs navi, mail wurde nicht beantwortet. Am morgen beim anruf wurde gesagt die Rezeption sei erst ab 10uhr offen. Bei einem weiteren Anruf nach 10uhr, wir sollten uns bei Ankunft in Fes melden, der Avis Mitarbeiter übernahm das Gespräch und bekam eine anfahrtsadresse.vor ort liess man uns 45 min an der Rezeption warten und fertigte eine später angekommene Reisegruppe vor uns ab. Dann brachten sie uns ohne Erklärung in ein benachbartes Riad wo man uns sagte sie wären überbucht und wir bekähmen für die nächste nacht dafür eine suite.Eine wahl hatten wir nicht.Als wir uns nicht zufrieden zeigten wurde zusätzlich eine spa Behandlung offeriert, welche wirklich gut gemacht zweiten abend war dann ein firmenanlass im Riad der party machte mit lauter musik bis 23:30! Beim Abendessen im Arabesque dann ein schlimmer fauxpas! Wir sind Vegetarier und uns wurde gesagt dass sie nur salat und Suppe für uns hätten,wir entscheiden für die Suppe. Beim zweiten schöpfen fand sich jedoch ein grosser knochen darin! Man wisse nicht wie das passieren konnte. Die konsumation habe20 Derb El Miter, Zenjfour - Medina, Fès 30200, Marokkon wir zwar nicht gezahlt aber wir würden das Riad nicht wieder buchen! Leider!
