Excellent location and cheap
on Apr 25, 2019
For the price we paid the location was very good. It's inside the medina but just two minutes away from a departure point for day trips. The staff was very very friendly and helpful. The room was next to the entrance hall and breakfast area so it was quite loud sometimes.
The worst hole I have ever been in. Avoid this place!!!

It was the worst acommodation I have ever been in. We had two rooms, one on a top, and one on the ground floor. The walls in the room on the top were full of moldy and wet, towels in the bathroom could not be dried out of moisture. Smell was disgusting. The handle of bathroom broken. We asked the guy to fix it, he did, but it lasted just two opening than it fell of again. We asked for a hairdryer. The only one they had was broken, so in the evening they brought one which they have bought in nearest shop. We were forced to pay in advance. The guy who works there Mohammed is fake and liar. Once you've paid you are left alone. TV one channel, Air condition produced terrible sound. The pictures and reviews on booking.com are absolutely false and from some earlier time. I would not recomend it even to my enemy. This is also criticism to booking.com, they should remove it from their list, but it seems they do not care for customer but more to their commission. Sadly for them as well. Shame on you too booking.com
excellent staff, location and attention, bad smell in one of the rooms

the staff is very nice, the breakfast is delicious, and the location is very good considering the maze that fes can be, however, one of the rooms (below the stairs) has a horrible smell (like sewage). Try to avoid that room and you'll be fine.

Our stay in the Riad was much worse than we expected from the reviews. The few good things first: the riad is very close to the Blue Gate and is clean and cheap. However, the Riad is in the butcher section of the medina, so expect to see camel heads hangings from the shops, goat heads and live killings of chicken everytime you go in or out of the Riad. The smell inside the building is also bad and in our room there was a very bad smell coming from the bathroom. The communication with the riad was horrible: we send two emails few days in advance to cancel our last night and received no reply. The quality of the breakfast was quite poor compared to most riads. Usually, we almost never fail chosing a hotel following the reviews, but this time we failed. Maybe the boss has changed, or there is some other reason, but in our opinion the place was much worse than the reviews. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Perfect for the price we paid

I really liked our stay here!
Advantages: Wafa and Zakariyya are super nice and their hospitalty is perfect. Wifi was good in our room called 'Meriam'. Breakfast is included and enough. The riad is in a side road of the sooks nearby the gate bab boujloud. I thought that was absolutely perfect when you wanted to get back by taxi and did not know how to tell the taxi driver how to get back (they hardly speak English. Most of them speak only French and Arabic). You have a lot of cash machines nearby the riad and places to eat.
It is superrrrr close to café clock which has amazing food and the atmosphere is very nice!!
Disadvanage: the bathroom was a little bit smelly but I have experienced this in multiple countries all over the world so it is not specific for this riad.
