About This Listing
Dar Rbab is a 300 year old house in the heart of the walled medina of Fes. The White Room is a large and cool room on the upper floor.
The room has a double bed, plus an additional single bed, with a private, en suite bathroom newly renovated with a beautiful grey tadelekt - polished plaster - finish. We brought the sand all the way from Marrakech! There's a recently installed, reverse cycle air conditioning unit that can heat and cool.
The house is in the region of 300 years old, and has all the features associated with historic houses in Fes. The centre of the two storey building is a courtyard, with pillars supporting balconies at the first floor. Access to all the principal rooms is by massive sets of cedarwood double doors, elaborately decorated and gilded on their inner sides.
Dar Rbab is emphatically not a hotel; it was our family home, and when we are away the property is run by S'Mohamed and our housekeeper. Families with children are welcome.
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 rules, but we would be grateful if you didn't smoke in the bedrooms.
The room has air conditioning and for the sake of the planet and our power bills, we'd ask you to switch it off if you go out for the day and to make sure the doors and windows are shut when it's on.
A lovely place to feel at home in the medina of Fes. Relaxing atmosphere and helpful hosts. I would definitely recommend this place.
We had great experience in Mark's house! The house is really beautiful with lots of amazing details here and there! I also love the zen atmosphere of the Riad, very much appreciated after an overwhelming day in the Medina. Mohamed was very kind and gave us very useful information. Communication with Mark was fast and easy! The Riad is very well located in a quite street in the Medina, not very difficult to find. We are definitely coming back!!
Very warm welcome Rom Mouhamed.
Lovely old riad restored some years ago with great care.
Room very comfortable. Accommodated my late arrival and offered copious advice.
Staying here was very strange. Greeted by a manager and another, never introduced person, we were questioned about our travel plans. For security reasons, I declined. That was the last we saw of anybody that night or in the morning. Checked out at 7:30AM- no one there to say goodbye.
Très bon accueil par Mohamed qui nous a donné de bons conseils pour notre séjour!
La chambre "blanche" est spacieuse, la salle de bains aussi. Cependant elle manque de lumière et d'ouverture.
Le petit déjeuner était simple et "local".
Sympa pour un weekend à Fès!

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.
