Rachid and Oulyia will welcomme tou and offer you a breakfast (included in the price that should keep you going all day long. If you're still hungry, though, the house has an equipped kitchen and Oulyia can cook the evening meal for you (not included in the price).
Conveniently located in the Medina, the Riad is also very close to one of the main entrance points to the city (Bab El Guissa) where Rachid will be waiting for you on your day of arrival and guide you in the labyrinth of the Medina to find the Riad.

Other Things to Note
On top of the Airbnb price, each guest will be asked to pay a city tax of 2,5 euros per guest per night on their departure day, which will be transfered to Fes City Council.
Our Stay in Fez was great. The house is every bit as beautiful as the photos, if not more so. The roof terrace is just amazing. Rachid, wife and mother-in-law are delightful and made as feel very welcome. Everything was organized extremely well. The meals, breakfast and dinner. were excellent; it was great to have real Moroccan home cooking. Going to the Hammam was amazing and so was the cooking lesson. We will definitely go back and recommend the place.
It was, however, at times slightly difficult to get in touch with Edgar before our stay.
Alquilamos el Riad un grupo de amigos (8) y solo tenemos buenas palabras para describir la experiencia. El edificio está muy bien, y el servicio aun mejor, Rachid se encarga de resolver cualquier duda y nos ayudó con la contratación de un guía y una visita a Meknes en furgoneta. Además disfrutamos de una cena fabulosa en calidad y cantidad. Lo recomiendo al 100%.
Como sugerencia mejor contactar con Edgar por teléfono una vez aceptada la estancia, así se agiliza el proceso.
Wow! The pictures do not do this place justice! It was beautiful and after I took a tour of the crafts of Fes, I was even more appreciative of the intricacies of the plaster and woodwork. It is a huge riad with 3 bedrooms and ensuites on the upper floor, another bedroom and bathroom on the middle floor, and a beautiful terrace with awesome views of the Medina. It was located right in the Medina which was great for my small group to explore. The hosts, Rachid and Oulyia, were amazing, meeting us at the Bab Guissa gate to guide us to the house (a must). Oulyia also cooked dinner for us 2 nights and it was two of the best meals of our trip! We just let her know in the morning and the cost was very reasonable, especially related to the quality. A special treat was Oulyia taking us to the traditional Hammam. It was an amazing authentic experience, highly recommended! Edgar was a little tough to reach, but it all worked out and we had a great time in Fes!
Alquilamos el riad para un dia y quedamos encantados, Eramos 7 y teniamos espacio de sobra.un pequeño problema fue que la casa estaba un poco fria pero en cada habitacion habia un calefactor y monton de mantas asique enseguida lo solucionamos. Raschid y su mujer nos recibieron con un te tipico marroqui y fueron encantadores y muy serviciales durante toda la estancia. Raschid fue a recogernos a la Puerta de la medina y nos guio hasta localizar el lugar. La unica pega que le pongo es la dificultad de contactar con ellos antes de llegar, primero tuve que contactar con Edgar, que no me contestaba a los emails, pero en cuanto le envie un mensaje todo fue rodado y me puso en contacto con Raschid con el que consegui contactar enseguida. Recomiendo mucho pasar los dias en Fez en este riad
It was an amazing experience and the Medina was incredible. The Riad was exactly as it was portrayed in the pictures and was just as beautiful in real life. Rachid and Olaya were fantastic hosts and helped us to organise our trip around Morocco with a wonderful driver Adil!! Olaya prepares some of the best meals we have ever had and would highly recommend that you dine in the Riad. We cannot recommend this place enough and had a fantastic traditional Moroccan experience.
Six of us have just spent four great days in Fez, in this beautiful old medina house. Fez is a city which seems to have barely changed in a thousand years....life still revolves around the mosques, the family, the souks, the hammams and the myriad artisan workshops...and staying in Edgar's house is an opportunity to immerse yourself in it all. Listening to the hundreds of muezzins calling the faithful to prayer across the city at sunset from the roof of the house, has to be one of the most memorable experiences...of my life! The medina is a maze of ill lit, confusing alleyways, but wonderful Ouliya, who looks after the house and guests, can arrange a guide ....this is highly advisable! She is also an amazing cook....and for about 100dhrms each per meal, will produce a fantastic evening feast for you. This is not only a great way to try delicious, authentic, Moroccan food....it also means you dont have to leave the house and try to navigate the alleyways in the dark! (Not for the faint hearted!). We ended up eating in every night....and it was a high spot of our trip. Oulyia also gave two of us a short course in cooking Moroccan food....highly recommended for foodies!
NB Although the days in January can be quite warm....it can be very cold at night. There are some heaters and plenty of blankets...but these old houses are built primarily to cope with summer heat, not cold, damp winters. Take plenty of warm clothes....and slippers for the stone floors. The plumbing is a bit haphazard, too....but it basically works.....and you could always use the hammam, like the locals!
We had a fabulous stay....its a beautiful old house, in a wonderfully vibrant and exotic setting....
Thank you, Edgar, Ouliya and Rachid.
Super expérience. Rachid et Oulya sont très accueillant et les talents de cuisinière cette dernière seront la cerise sur le gâteau de votre séjour. Maison d'hôte authentique, décoration typique. Je recommande sans réserves!
