Fabulous 8.6 From 19 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Good location, comfortable beds
This is a nice, newly renovated raid near the wall of the medina, and not far from one of the gates, so it’s relatively easy to find. The room was pretty clean, and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast is good. We also ordered dinner there one night, and it was great. The biggest downside is the staircase, which is very steep and narrow. Also, the shower had mildew.

We loved staying at the Riad Scalia! The property was beautiful and easy to find, away from the hustle and bustle of the medina but an easy walk away. We had a lovely terrace in our room overlooking the countryside. Our hosts were extremely kind and friendly.

Wonderful stay on the edge of the Medina
Riad Scalia is charming and comfortable home away from home located on the edge of the Fez Medina. Our room and the common areas were clean and beautifully decorated. In addition, the shower was water was hot and the WIFI worked well. Our hosts, Mohammed and Nezah, were two of the nicest people I have ever met in a place where I stayed as a guest. Nezha went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful, and she is warm and genuine individual. After a long day of walking all over the Medina, she invited to the rooftop terrace for a cup of fresh tea. And what an amazing view! The home-made breakfast every morning was delicious, and Nezah showed us how she cooked the chicken and vegetable couscous that we had for dinner. Staying at Riad Scalia made our short time in Fes very enjoyable, and we were genuinely glad that we had selected to stay there.

Poor 2.0
We had terrible experience On the day of boot we were in contact with owner of lodge and spoke to him three times and told him about our expected time of arrival, we arrived around 11:35 pm , the moment we arrived at hotel we found that the way out towards hotel was very narrow congested streets , owner of lodge started to shout at us and yell that why we were late ? I told him that’s not the way to talk than he asked us to leave though we had reservation? After heated argument for about 15 minutes , manager of lodge Nazha came down and asked owner to calm down and don’t shout as other guest were sleeping. Breakfast was very poor , below standard for even a three star hotel ! Before booking on ebookers website it was mentioned that there was free parking , in fact that was a lie , there was paid parking at about 10 minutes walk from hotel and we paid 2 euros per 24 hours! Lodge owner said to us that last Chekin time was 21:00 hours , but my reservation email didn’t say anything like that , even on ebookers website no time limit was mentioned for checkin! Overall a pathetic experience and I felt like being decieved by ebookers website !

Very Good 8.0
Beautiful view and very friendly
Riad Scalia is a beautiful Riad on the border of the Medina. It's about a 5 minute walk from where you have to park the car at Bab Guissa. Staff were very friendly and played with our daughter. We ate at the hotel on the first night and it was expensive, but very tasty.

A jewel tucked away in the corner of the medina
Riad Scalia is charming and comfortable without being pretentious. The rooms and the common areas are clean and attractive, the water is hot, the wifi is solid. While located away from the main tourist hotspots of the medina, the riad is still close enough to some very interesting quarters and Bab Boujloud is a short and cheap taxi ride away (or a fascinating 30 minute walk). Easy long-term parking is reasonably handy with porters ready and waiting to ferry your luggage for a tip. But the real highlight of Riad Scalia is the manager, Nezha. She goes out of her way to make your stay wonderful and her concern for guests is warm and genuine. No matter what time of the day or night you come back to the riad, Nezha seems to be waiting and ready for a friendly chat about what you've been up to, before offering tea on the rooftop terrace. Nezha's cooking was a daily treat. She serves her house-made breakfast every morning with pride and will cook dinner on request for a reasonable price (we enjoyed a delicious chicken and vegetable cous cous). Overall, staying at Riad Scalia made our time in Fes more enjoyable and we were genuinely sad to say goodbye.

The property is a hidden gem inside a medina which I absolutely loved. Nezha was an amazing cook and super sweet! She made us feel extremely comfortable and recommended things to do in the area. I would stay here again and give it 5 stars!!!

Fair 4.0
I noticed afterwards that we should be served with drink when we arrived but we did not receive tea. We had trouble locating the place because the lat/long on Google map for their hotel is pointing to a wrong place. It could be fine but it was rainy and dark, I could only follow Google map before I managed to call them. There were 3 of us. We paid 70 euro for a 5 hour tour in madina through the host, the female guide left my friends alone after 2 hours. I was sick and could not join, we still paid her 70 euro for 2 people. I asked the host to contact her, she thinks if my friends do not know where else they want to go, she has finished her job. The host is not that interested to protect the interests of us, but telling me my friend made a scene in the morning by "screaming at the guide in front of other guests". My friends wanted to cancel the tour because I was sick and they don't want to go without me, but I convinced them to continue and paid the same price. I don't see this as the reason that the guide choose to end the trip that early because my friends "finish the sightseeing fast". I personally apologized to the hosts on behalf of my friends for "screaming in front of other guests". But this does not mean my friends are at fault for all of these. We had an early (8am) bus the next day, the host forgot to return us our passport one day before, so I had to embarrass myself calling their phones and knocking at door to get
