About this listing
This is our smallest room. It's a double bedroom, located on the ground floor, with our normal, vast set of double cedar doors, gilded and painted, and leading onto the central courtyard, which is open to the sky in the summer, and covered and heated in the winter.
The room has a comfortable double bed with a wrought iron frame, a hand made Rbati carpet, and that's about it. Thick walls keep the medina and summer heat at bay, and there's a majestically high, cedar wood ceiling. There is modern air conditioning and heating.
The room has a private, en suite shower room with shower, wc, and hand basin, finished in dramatic black tadelekt.
We part own a Moroccan Tourist Transport company and are happy to provide quotes to take you on into the Atlas, the Sahara, the Rif, Marrakech and Essaouira. Rates start at 120 euros per day for an air conditioned 4x4/SUV, fuel, and an English speaking driver/guide.
We try not to make any rules... but we would prefer it if you didn't smoke in the bedrooms.
Please note that while everything from a banquet to a snack is available, and breakfast is included, the kitchen is not available for guests use.
As the house surrounds a courtyard, please respect other guests need to sleep and avoid loud noise late at night. If you have the house to yourself and there are no other guests or family there, party as late as you like.
We booked the transfer from the airport and the light meal at the first evening.
It was no problem to find the driver, his English was very good and when he lead us through the Medina to the riad we noticed it was a very good choice to book the complete transfer because it is quite hard to find.
In the riad it was a very nice welcome with the other guest and the house manager Mohamed who already waited with Moroccan tea for us. The dinner wasn't really light at all. We got a big chicken tangine and lots of salad and bread made by the housemaid.
Mohamed made our stay very comfortable. He gave us advices where to go and what to see in the Medina and on top of that went with us to the hospital when my girlfriend got really sick. All in all the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The riad was very cosy and looked excactly awesome like in the photos.
The only thing we missed in our room was a door for the bathroom because the smell of the canalisation was sometimes intense.
If you want to see the Medina this is the perfect riad. Stepping out of the door you are 100 metres away from one of the main streets of the Medina.
Great riad! Beautiful space and great location with fes! The guys who worked there were so helpful and made sure we saw as much as possible during our short stay!
Our stay with Mark was great. Even though the riad is nog easy to find it was a great place to stay in Fez, not far from the important streets in the Medina. Mohammed welcomed us and provided all the information we needed and we could always call him when help was needed, which was really reassuring. Great place to stay!
We really loved your place, your staff has been really accurate and helpful. This a really romantic place and we had the pleasure of having dinner in the Ryhad and the food was amazing, best Tajin ever. I would highly recommend!
Perfect location, close to all attractive places and in the heart of medina. Very nice and helpful people, it was real joy to stay in this place. Very delicious breakfast, air conditioning, traditional house with a lot of beautiful things. Very good description how to find the house, it was easy thank you! Highly recommended! :)
The description was accurate and also reviews! Everything was great, but the bathroom was too dark. We had reserved a driver to pick us up from the airport, somehow he forgot, but Mark got us a new driver driver right away and it was for free! Thank you!

About the Host, Mark
I've been in Morocco since 1999. I run a small specialist travel agency and regularly lead trips through the Sahara and the Atlas mountains.
I'm British, and speak English, French and the local Arabic dialect.
I adore travel, food, and culture. Dar Rbab was a family home to myself, my wife, who's Moroccan, and our two daughters and we hope our guests enjoy this beautiful old house as much as we do.
