Wonderful riad in a perfect location, close enough and just far away enough from the blue gate to get a better taste of this magnificent city! The top floor does get a bit hot and the bathroom could use a tad more privacy, but it really didn't bother us at all. The terrace has one of the best views in the medina and Ahmed and Sayeed were great hosts!
We loved this beautiful home. After checking in we actually requested to stay an additional two days. We have been traveling for 6 weeks already and after spending a couple days in the desert on camels we really looked forward to some R and R! We kept waiting for the catch when we checked in. We felt spoiled it was perfect. The location is great. The hall seems a little scary but Ahmed installed a light while we were here and it really helped getting through the hall to the front door of the Riad. The terrace is beautiful the bathrooms great and the rooms clean and beautiful. The bed is firm and there is no full size mirror. But it was everything we needed. Ahmed is an amazing man. He loves working here and will do everything he can to make your stay memorable, we enjoyed our morning chats very much. He is really a wonderful man. Sayied is the best he is the bringer of amazing breakfasts. Always with a smile and he navigates he steep stairs with trays of food like a real professional! We loved everything about this place and we can not wait to bring our friends here in the future. Thank you for a wonderful and restful stay.
How wonderful that you felt spoilt and at home at Dar Sienna. I can imagine that you really were in need of some R+R after 6 weeks' travelling. The installation of an extra light is indeed helpful, and Ahmed really takes care of all the details with a lot of care and love and Said is an absolute honey!
The mattresses are firm indeed....I do agree..... this is the Moroccan style of mattress manufacturing, and the handmade mattresses are even firmer! We look forward to welcoming you and your friends back soon.
Mohamed y Said fueron muy atentos en todo momento, pendientes de facilitarnos la estancia. Cada mañana nos recibían con un excelente desayuno y comentábamos los planes del día. Fueron de gran ayuda.
La casa cumplió con nuestras expectativas. Bonita, bien rehabilitada, limpia. Situada en el centro de la medina de Fez, permite experimentar la ciudad en toda su esencia.
Recomendamos la casa a los viajeros que quieran acercarse a esta ciudad.
L'accoglienza al Dar Sienna è forse la migliore che ho trovato in tutto il Marocco! :) Ahmed è un manager impagabile, è sempre disponibile, informato su tutto e molto molto d'aiuto! La colazione servita sul terrazzo è ottima, ed anche la posizione è molto centrale e perfetta per visitare la medina!
Dar Sienna is a really lovely place!
I arrived VERY late in the evening. Saud & manager Ahmed were waiting for me to arrive & made sure I got to the riad safely with no problems. Ahmed provided very clear instructions how to get around Fez on my own - saved me a lot of money instead of purchasing a tour. The breakfast on the terrace was divine!!! One of my favorite moments in my Morocco trip. It's also located right next to the mosque. Hearing the call to prayer at sunset on the terrace was a memorable experience.
Although I only stayed 2 nights & 1 day, I was also able to meet Sonhild, I love her lively & kind personality! I had to leave at 330 am for the airport, and Saud & Ahmed made very good accommodations for me to get to airport early in the morning. I would definitely stay here again! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

About the Host, Sonhild
I am an absolute Moroccophile! Welcome to Fez......I fell in love with Fez 10 years ago...Sunset, the call to prayer, and that was it. Favourite authors: Paul Bowles, Mohamed Choukri, Tahar Ben Jalloun.... Favourite movie: The Sheltering Sky and Hideous Kinky, both of course about Morocco. Favourite food, Moroccan, Italian and French.
Restoring a house in the medina has been the result of an ongoing love affair with Fez, and here we are now, Dar Sienna. Welcome-Marhaban.
Meeting guests is just the most perfect way to share my enthusiasm for and love of this magical city.
My motto is: No regrets.
