All the rooms surround a large courtyard complete with fountain in the middle. Our large roof-top terrace ‘Happy Times’ has imposing views over to the Zalagh Mount, Rif mountains and Medina - the perfect place for sunset drinks.
From the terrace you can chill out on the poufs, sunbathe on our recliners and hammocks or relax in the Berber Jaima whilst listening to the hum on the muezzins calling the faithful to prayer.

Interaction with Guests
There are plenty of communal patios, terraces so the guests are interacting the whole time and breakfast is on communal tables .
Love how the batha neighbourhood is the safest part of the Medina, plenty of other Riads and guest houses, guardians patrol the area and the crime rate is the lowest in the whole of Fes. Lots of families and wealthier Fessis live here and a lot of attention to detail is put on daily cleaning of the streets, lit roads and designated car parking.
Only 5 mins walk from the bus stop in the Batha fountain and a taxi can drop you within 2 mins of the Riad door.
