  • We did not have the chance to meet Sonhild but her staff was very helpful and nice.
    We were warmly welcomed and Ahmed gave us good tips about what to do and go in Fes.

    We really appreciate the stunning view from the terraces and the room was great! The breakfast was fantastic and Sabah was really nice with us.

    We met another lovely couple there and we spent our stay with them, making Fes experience even better!

    An advice for the following hosts: as mentioned, you need to be able to go up all the tiny stairs to access your room. The toilet and shower are also very small.
    If you plan to go out and get back late (namely after sunset), the place is in the heart of the Medina and might not be very safe. We did not feel very comfortable walking back at night in the Medina streets...

  • Dar Sienna is everything you hope it would be and exactly as shown in the pictures. I was lucky enough to have the top room with en suite which is beautifully decorated, has everything you need, and direct access to the roof terrace. House Manager Ahmed and Housekeeper Saba do anything in their power to help you and ensure you have an enjoyable stay. I had a fantastic holiday, and as a solo female traveller I can honestly say I didn't once feel unsafe, and was happy to roam about the medina alone where everyone was extremely cheerful, friendly and helpful. Dar Sienna is an excellent base to explore this charming city.

  • J'ai passé un très très bon moment à Dar Sienna, très bien situé dans la Médina, décoration soignée, chambre très agréable, et le plus, la sublime double terrasse avec vue imprenable sur la ville.
    Nous avons été accueillies comme des amies par Ahmed qui nous a donné des conseils judicieux pour notre séjour en plus des discussions matinales toujours très intéressantes... Mention spéciale au magnifique petit déjeuner préparé par l'adorable Sabah!! Bref un vrai coup de coeur..

    Hello Juliette It was a total pleasure having you and your friend 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. Sonhild Grey: Owner Dar Sienna

  • Our stay at Dar Sienna was a real highlight of our trip - it was by far the most welcoming accommodation we encountered in Morocco. The room was stylish and comfortable, adjacent to a rooftop terrace with one of the finest views in Fez, a glorious surprise for a historic house tucked so deep in the heart of the ancient medina.
    Dar Siena has been modernised and kitted out in a tasteful, colourful style that oozes character. The breakfasts were great and the friendly, courteous hospitality of Ahmed and Sabba was second to none. Ahmed met us and guided us to the house and was a mine of helpful information throughout our stay, helping us prepare and plan our onward journey as well.
    We were really lucky to cross paths with Dar Sienna's owner Sonhild during our stay. We were warmly welcomed and Sonhild went out of her way to make our stay in Fez special. As well as enjoying some good wandering and coffee off the beaten track in the Medina, Sonhild enabled me to finally get the courage to go to the Hammam - a memorable and invigorating experience I'll never forget.
    We found the information e-mailed to us by Sonhild when we booked the room invaluable - it was comprehensive and fascinating and really helped us make the most of our stay in Fez.
    I'd wholeheartedly recommend Dar Sienna to any visitor keen to discover the vibrant heart of this amazing city. Enjoy!

    Hello dearest Catriona
    It was such a pleasure meeting you both... Your enthusiasm, coupled with mine...well, we were bound to have fun together. Going to the hammam with you and chilling in the backstreet cafe, late at night, whilst the entire male populace was watching footie was just brilliant.
    Please come back soon.
    Warmest greetings

About
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.
