Beautiful Riad!
This Riad was so beautiful (an Oasis) and the staff was so amazing! The Riad was walking distance from all of the sites of interest. We made reservations to eat at the Riad during our stay and the meal was so delicious! Very attentive staff, helping you with whatever you needed.

Awesome Hotel...But!!
I liked the hotel and its facilities as well as the services and cooperation of the staff. However, the only thing which made me disappointed is that I got deceived by the hotel manager who sold us Argan oil for MAD 1600 (1 litre) then we discovered that this oil is not the one dedicated for the skin care and its mainly used for cooking (orange color oil). Furthermore, we found that the price for the original oil intended for skin care is not exceeding MAD 400!!!

We love the location and the amusing setting. Like the attention to details. Our room was very special. We especially like the little window in the upper floor bathroom with the view and the roof top overlooking the Medina

An excellent Riad!
A really fabulous Riad with amazing attention to detail, wonderful furnishings and a great feel to the place. The location is ideal - very accessible, a short walk into the heart of the Medina - and has great views etc from the rooftop terrace. Great breakfast and attentive service too. Sometimes the concierges recommendations are overly cautious with a tendency to push you towards slightly touristy (and overpriced) restaurants. We would highly recommend Cafe Fes and the Ruined Garden neither of which they seemed to know anything about! Don't let this put you off though as it really is an excellent place to stay!

Edles Riad mit tollem Ambiente
Wir hatten einen schönen Aufenthalt in Karawan Riad. Wir wurden durch den via das Riad organisierten Transfer (lohnt sich) am Bahnhof abgeholt und dann durch den Gepäckträger bis zum Riad geführt. Dort erwartet uns ein herzlicher Empfang. Das Riad ist sehr ansprechend eingerichtet, hat gutes WLAN, schöne Salons, einen tollen Innenhof und eine schöne Dachterrasse. Das Frühstück war ausgezeichnet! Das Zimmer war sehr grosszügig und mit eigener Terrasse ausgestattet. Auch war der Besuch im hoteleigenen Hammam eine sehr gute, interessante Erfahrung. Sehr freundliches Personal. Allgemein ist wichtig zu erwähnen, dass es im Winter in den Riads kälter ist als wir das von zu Hause gewöhnt sind. Leute die schnell kalt haben, sollten genügend warme Sachen mitbringen.

Wunderschönes Riad mit sehr entspannter Atmosphäre und einem Blick für kleine Details. Die ausschließlich Suiten sind super schön, Lage ist perfekt in der Medina und das Frühstück war sehr lecker und vor allem abwechslungsreich. Sehr freundliches, hilfsbereites Personal. Wir hatten eine großartige Tour durch die Medina mit einem tollen, durch das Riad organisierten Guide. 100% zu empfehlen, denn ohne Guide wird man sich niemals zurecht finden und viel zu wenig von Fès erfahren. Schließlich haben wir unser allererstes Hamam erlebt, im hauseigenen Spa. Sehr tolles Erlebnis. Einen Mini-Minuspunkt: Abendessen war o.k., aber mehr leider nicht. Aber rundum ein groartiges Riad, hier sollte man auf jeden Fall ein paar Tage verbringen.
