About This Listing
Dar Othmane is a charming guesthouse traditionally and beautifully restored and nestled in the heart of the old Medina of Fes, Morocco. The house is more than 300 years old and features walls of polished tadelakt, original cedar wood beamed ceilings and doors which have been restored beautifully. All the furniture has been made by local craftsmen. The central courtyard is decorated with ornate zellig tiles and is a perfect place to relax after exploring the old Medina and it’s alleyways and small streets. Iraq glass has been placed in all the windows for peace and privacy, and warmth in the winter months when the evenings can be a little cooler.
The roof terrace with its panoramic views of the Medina and the surrounding hills is the perfect haven, whether you want to enjoy the sun or read in the shade. It’s offering moments of intmiacy, relaxation and meetings between the guests. Its an ideal place to spend your evenings watching the sun go down, whilst you wine and dine under the African sky.
Dar Othmane is located in the heart of the Medina yet easily accessible from the main street Talaa Kebira. It’s just a 10 minutes walk to “Bab Boujiloud”, the beautiful blue gate which is the main entry to the oldest Medina of the world. Just around the corner you can discover the souk with its hundreds of market stalls selling spices, vegetables, carpets, pottery and beautiful fabrics. The carpark of Ain Azleten is only a 5 minutes walk from the guesthouse.
We invite you to enjoy the spellbinding atmosphere of the beautiful old Medina of Fes.

All prices are per room per night including breakfast—A local tax is also payable at 2 Euros per night per person
The double room with bathroom was quite comfortable and clean. The manager was kind, courteous and helpful when present. However this riad did not offer free wifi although it claimed to. The rooms were not lockable so when you left the building, your belongings were not secure within the building. Usually the riad was unattended, although the manager was sometimes there, we were never informed when he would be on the premises.
Hicham, nos trato genial la casa esta muy bien ubicada , es preciosa, el desayuno muy bueno y nos ayudo en todo momento. Repitiriamos seguro.
No fue una buena experiencia, ya que debido a un problema de cañerías según lo explicado por Hicham nos alojaron en un hotel, que no era exactamente lo que buscábamos y no cumplía nuestras espectativas, mas allá que la gente del hotel fue muy cordial y amable con nosotros
Hicham was a very nice host.
At first his family welcomed us in their riad. When it turned out that our room wasn't available there, Hicham himself walked us through the medina to another hotel where we could spend the night, at the same rate.
Very well located and with the traditional Moroccan style.
fantastic place, ideally located, well restored, our room upstairs was charming (although the bathroom is not directly attached to it) and the breakfast place on top is simply great! Hicham has always been there to answer our questions, would definetely come back!
