    We've just come back from having stayed three nights at Dar Bensouda in Fes. While we didn't particularly like Fes as a city, we fell in love with this riad and the people working there. In particular the manager Omar and Mamoune truly made our stay. They're beautiful humans who were always happy to help and went above and beyond to help us with transport and train tickets. The riad itself is a stunning place to come home to at the end of the day - we loved the pool, the breakfast and the beautifully cooked food. Thank you!

    This place is an immaculately preserved home from the 15th or 16th century with all original/restored details that will simply take your breath away. Add in the unbelievable view of the city/Medina from the rooftop terrace, the plunge pool and lounge area and the delicious food for breakfast (free!), lunch and dinner (affordable!) and you can’t beat this place. It’s clean and gorgeous and one of a kind—I’ve never stayed anywhere like it. Don’t miss this opportunity!!

    We enjoyed the rooftop view. The staff was able to provide dinner for us on the roof as we watched the sunset. The door to our room did not close fully.

    Excellent quiet retreat in the center of crazy Fez

    The room was spectacular! Like a little apartment! And it was nice to have a restaurant there where I could order different things because it was too confusing to find anything at night. The rooftop was also INCREDIBLE. I could have lounged up there all week!

    A beautiful riad, we enjoyed our stay. very lovely staff, really helpful. We did find the area a bit removed but located near to a lovely restaurant (Ruined Garden). All in all a good stay.

    Dar Bensouda may have been the most amazing Riad was stayed in during our time in Morocco. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the comfort and satisfaction that we felt while eating dinner poolside and enjoying our amazing room was second to none. A truly fantastic experience that should not be missed while visiting Fes.

    Clean, simple and very traditional!

    Amazing architecture with beautiful colors and doors, the staff is very good and the rooms are simple but very cosy. The breakfast was not as good, but overall a very nice stay!
