Dar Sienna is just a fantastic Riad really in the middle of the medina of Fez! Its beautiful renovated with a panoramic terrace, it s warm (important in the winter - also in morocco), the staff is very hospital and helpful and really take care of you with all your questions. The breakfast was delicious every morning. We felt very well there and had a relaxing time. The contact to Sonhild was very easy and she gave us a lot of information about Morocco, Fez and the house before we arrived. I would higly recommend it!
Hemos pasado 3 noches en Dar Sienna, en la habitación Seffarine y el trato, tanto de Ahmed, como de Saba, no ha podido ser mejor. Aunque Sonhild, la propietaria, te envía por mail un documento completísimo sobre Fez, sus costumbres, dónde comer, etc, una vez que estás allí Ahmed te lo completa aún más, te da indicaciones de todo y le puedes preguntar cualquier duda. Una vez más, el trato es inmejorable.
De Dar Sienna destacar que está en el corazón de la medina, pero es muy tranquilo, no hay nada de ruidos, aunque pueda parecer lo contrario. Tan sólo las horas de la llamada al rezo, que se oyen los cantos de todas las mezquitas, pero a nosotros personalmente nos encantó.
Y en cuanto a la habitación Seffarine, es espaciosa y la cama es cómoda. Avisar que el baño, aunque no es compartido, está fuera de la habitación. Además, el agua caliente de la ducha tarda en salir y dura muy poco, de repente se acaba y sale helada, sin tocar para nada el agua fría.
Teniendo esto en cuenta y que, por supuesto, tiene otros muchos encantos, han sido unos días estupendos.
Dar Sienna in the old Medina of Fes is a beautiful oasis. Achmed is the perfect host and manager and is willing to help you with everything you want to know. The communication with Sonhild, the English owner went very smooth. The maid delivers a delicious breakfast and the view on the roofterras has probably the best panoramic view of the whole town.
Am I clear?
Abbiamo passato 6 giorni al Dar Sienna e siamo stati benissimo. Lo consiglio assolutamente, sia per la posizione centrale, che per la quiete, per la bellezza e pulizia delle camere (siamo stati in seffarine room e poi nella graziosissima celeste room e da entrambe si vede la medina), sia per le abbondanti colazioni preparate da Saba. La terrazza su due livelli offre una vista sulla citta davvero invidiabile ed è comodo l'uso della cucina. Sopratutto un vero piacere è stato conoscere una persona tanto speciale quanto professionale come Ahmed. Grazie Sonhild, grazie DarSienna.
I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at DAR SIENNA in the SEFFARINE ROOM and also CELESTE ROOM. So you have experienced almost the entire house! Great that you appreciated the magnificent 360 degree view from our terraces and the use of the kitchen. Ahmed, our House Manager is indeed a treasure and font of local knowledge and eager to share Moroccan culture. We look forward to having you to stay again soon.

What a beautiful house! Staff was wonderful, and entertaining, and location was perfect for medina exploration.
Hello Audrey it was a total pleasure having you to stay at Dar Sienna.. It was clear right from the start that you were going to have a wonderful stay: a keen sense of discovery, an open mind, and also kindness and a willingness to really experience Moroccan culture first hand. I greatly hope to have the pleasure of meeting you personally on your next trip, insha'allah.

Fez ancien Medina
Sonchild was quick to respond to emails and Ahmed was a lovely host. The rooms were clean and the bedding lovely. The mattresses are harder than we are used to in Canada, but maybe that is just a Moroccan thing, as it seemed every place we stayed had hard beds. I would stay there again without hesitation.
I am delighted that you had a great stay. Yes, indeed the mattress are firm, it is a Moroccan thing....
And why not come and stay and book the whole house, it is wonderful to have your own "mini-palace" to yourselves! With the wonderful Moroccan hospitality too! Welcome back anytime Warm regards Sonhild Grey Owner : DAR SIENNA
We had a great time at dar sienna! There were several highlights, including the wonderful communication with Sonhild, the owner, followed by a smooth pick up from the bus station from Ahmed, who was fantastic throughout the trip. He was helpful, and quite funny, and we had a great time chatting with him over breakfast. I moved how honest he was about Fez life, and helped us with arranging a day trip. I found his explanation of costs very fair, and I appreciated this very much.
Breakfast was excellent! Come hungry. Use of the laundry machine was a lifesaver, and taking advantage of the kitchen really helped us save some money as well. Sonhlid's cultural guide also has tons of suggestions and info about the area.
The only slight negative is the fact that sue to the age of the building, sound travels throughout the riad. This is especially hard with use of our bathroom on the second floor. It is impossible to open the main door quietly at night! But the rooms were clean, spacious and more than comfortable.
We would stay here again. The location is also amazing! Close to the main stretch without being on it, and a safe location at night.
You were a pleasure to host. The sound does travel in the traditonal medina houses. This is due to the central courtyard, and windows opening inwards from rooms onto the courtyard. As we only have 1 room per floor,(and outside windows) it is relatively quiet quiet at Dar Sienna. From the outset I have made sure that no housekeeping is done before ALL guests are up, as I found this to be very disturbing in other guesthouses! Thank you for the comment re the bathroom door, that has been attended to.

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.
