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.
My stay at Dar Rbab was a plant one. The Dar is beautiful and quiet. A bit hard to find as Mark has stated but not too difficult.
I had a change in plans and hey we're very accommodating. I left my phone charger and he let me know right away.
I would definitely recommend this Dar to others traveling.
Het was heel fijn om aan te komen in deze riad. Prachtig gebouw en correcte ontvangst door de gerant. Pareltje!
This is one of my best airB&B experience. The place is really authentic and the services are excellent!! Mohammad is really nice and helpful. He recommended places to go and visit. I had to check out late and he let me stay in the hotel until late then book a taxi for me to go to the train station. Fatimah, the cook.. She is so sweet, her mint tea is the best, they also serve you nice breakfast. I highly recommend you to stay at Dar rbab, they really take care of you. I am traveling solo and staying at this place enhance my experience. Ah, also.. The place is really clean. If you like jazz, it's even better.. What can be more relaxing than an authentic Moroccan lounge with 1950s jazz playing in the background. I cannot complain.
Mohammed and Mark were very responsive with communication prior to our arrival. While there Mohammed was extremely helpful and informative about all different aspects of visiting the Medina. The Dar Rbab and our room were in fantastic condition and immaculately clean. We ate at the Rbab on our first evening and it was the best meal that we had in Morocco. Very peaceful, welcoming place to stay. Mohammed was invaluable as a resource. Enjoyed meeting so many interesting and friendly guests. Very well staffed and professionally run.
Dar Rbab is most likely the best riad in all of Fez, having traveled all over morocco I can assure you that the quality of living will be equal if not better than a fancy hotel. The ornaments and wood work of the interior is breathtaking. In the afternoon they will play Frank Sinatra and serve you tea, what more can you ask for?
This riad is nothing short of amazing! Our host went above and beyond - he even sent someone to come pick us up outside the medina and bring us through to the location since it's hard to find. He also sent us up with a FABULOUS guide to take us around Fes. Just above and beyond and great time. Breakfast was also delicious. All the staff was great.
Very nice authentic Riad. Si Mohammed was very welcoming and Farida provided great food.
Wasn't too difficult to find...But we did have GPS!

I've lived in Morocco for most of the past decade. I run a small travel agency specialising in 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 our home as much as we do.
