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.
We stayed in this Riad with our family (6 persons), there was plenty of room for us and more. It is a great experience that it is situated in the Medina of Fez. As soon as you step out of the door you can experience the marrocan culture.
As the house is hard to find in the labyrinth of narrow streets we were happy that Rachid (he and his wife look after the house and the guests) picked us up at the gate of the Medina.
They also organized some trips and activities for us and they did this very well.
Note: to prevent unpleasant surprises afterwards, we advise to discuss and negotiate the costs upfront.
To conclude: All of us had a great time in this beautiful Riad in Fez
Riad affascinante situato in posizione strategica all'interno della medina ma in una zona tranquilla facilmente raggiungibile.
Il Riad è molto grande è ha una magnifica terrazza. Permette di ospitare più famiglie garantendo la privacy di ognuna. L'ospitalità è tipicamente marocchina: l'ospite è sacro; ogni necessità viene accolta.
La colazione è abbondante; le cene sono ottime.
We have had a wonderful stay at Edgar's Riad at Fes, right inside the Medina but not too far from one of its gates. The house itself is realy beautiful and very confortable, and Rachid and Ouliya had been extremely helpful. Rachid waited for us at the medina gate, leades us to the house (it´s impossible to manage yourself inside the medina without help!), proposed activities and called the guides and the taxis, etc. Ouliya guided us through the medina when we wanted some walk and, best of all, prepared for us incredible traditional morrocan meals, the best we ate in all our stay in Morrocco and at a reasonable price. She also prepared some spices for my wife... So, this place is highly recommended. Don't hesitate if you want the real experience of living inside an ancient medina!
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!
