Listing was accurate and the room was excellent. Sonhild very kindly let us know about the accommodation and city ahead of time and made us feel welcome. The host was friendly, knowledgeable and kept us right even after we left. Would stay there again if/when we come back!
We got a great welcome in Sonhild's place. She and her manager were available for us when we needed them. They explained us what to eat, where, where to go and we even got a few useful arabic phrases.
Amazing breakfast on the terrace with fab views. We really enjoyed the prayers from the mosques around. a beautiful experience.
Fes was overwhelming, I can't imagine navigating without the help Dar Sienna! Sonhild arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport, then had Said meet us at the gate of the medina and escort us to Dar Sienna. Ahmed, the manager, was hilarious and gave us directions and tips everyday. Said prepared an enormous breakfast each morning on the terrace. A great experience start to finish.
Nous avons passé un excellent moment dans ce riad en plein coeur de la médina, très bien entretenue avec sa terrasse sur le toit offrant une superbe vue. Ahmed et Said, le manager et son assistant, étaient au petit soin avec nous.
Nous recommandons vivement ce logement!
My trip to Fes was amazing, this also thanks to the beauty and kindness I found at Dar Sienna.
The communication beforehand with Sonhild was perfect, then when I arrived to Fes she arranged to have Said waiting for me in the train station and take me to the beautiful Riad.
I stayed 2 nights at the Celeste room, a beautiful top floor room well decorated and with toilet and shower, the view from the roof top terrace next to the room is stunning and the breakfast they serve is delicious. I also enjoyed the conversation with Ahmed which was always very kind and available for everything we needed including walking us to the taxi that he had arranged for us at our departure.
The Riad is in a perfect location in the middle of the Medina.
It was my first time to Fez, Morocco and Africa, and I would go back to Dar Sienna if I will go back.
Our stay at dar sienna was wonderful! The house is beautiful and centrally located in the old medina making walking to attractions and shopping very easy. The house staff was great and made getting to the house and finding or way in the city very easy. Also the breakfast was amazing!!
I really couldn't recommend Dar Sienna more. The panoramic views from the roof terrace are truly superb - especially during the prayer call and at breakfast time (a lovely spread with coffees, cakes and tagine-cooked eggs). Host Ahmed was kind, thoughtful and has an excellent sense of humour - offering helpful and detailed advice on where to go and how to get there, particularly useful on our first night when everything seemed quite daunting.
The room was clean and comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Very slight drain smell coming from the showers but this is ever present in Fes Medina so can't complain.
Finally, the location is completely central - great for the main streets and tanneries, and to get up to the ruins that overlook the town.
Cheers Sonhild, Ahmed and Said, we have Dar Sienna to thank for our great stay in Fes and we hope to return very soon!

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.
