Right in the heart of the Fes (Fez) Medina, Dar El Menia is a cool place. Very luxurious, convenient, and for the price, I couldn't believe the amount of luxury that we felt there. Graham also helped us to find some rocking activites while we were there. Cheers Mate!

From an alleyway in the Medina, through a plain wooden door into the most surprisingly beautiful building - what an introduction to Riad Fes. Carefully restored, the riad is a paradise of elegance and comfort in the heart of all the bustling activity of the Medina. We had a spacious comfortable room with adjoining sitting room. We were greeted with mint tea on the roof terrace with its magnificent views. There we could also take breakfast or in one of the areas around the internal courtyard - birds singing, fountain splashing. However probably the greatest asset of the riad is the staff who were without exception friendly, efficient and helpful. Absolutely fascinating city and a fascinating riad.
A funky 'hostel' (more like a boutique hotel) bang smack in the middle of Fes Old Town. Rooms are spacious and elegantly-furnished, and the shower room is so fabulous you don't mind sharing it.
There's a roof terrace full of sofas (and even an outdoor shower) and also a very useful kitchen and washing machine. Great breakfast, Wi-Fi, cheap rates.
Fes Youth Hostel is in the Ville Nouvelle, on a leafy back street. Its green courtyard is quiet, occupied by a cuddly black and white cat and some cynical tortoises. Book a twin room here and chill out - we found that though it's half an hour's walk from the medina, the change of atmosphere and the chance to relax were well worth it. And at 135 dirhams a night for the two of us, this is real budget accommodation, and very much better than any hotel we could find for the price. You don't need to be a YHA member either.
18 Rue Abdessalam Sergini, Fes - the back street near the Ville Nouvelle MacDonald's.
At the end of a tiny dead end lane in the very heart of the Medina, and looking distinctly unpromising with its collapsing and propped up buildings, is this painstakingly restored small and fabulous riad. With just three rooms available, the owners have lovingly brought every historic piece of timber, plaster and zelij tiling back to its original best. The house is intimate and beautifully furnished with an eclectic and stylish mix of period and contemporary pieces, bird cages, and fabrics including objects from Vietnam, Europe and elsewhere. the terrace looks out over the Medina and hills and is ideal to relax. The home made breakfast preserves, pancakes, juices and range of teas are the passion of the owners, as is the cooking if you have dinner in. The staff and Stephen and Bruno are helpful in the extreme, and will give you lots of honest advice on surviving and enjoying Fes. Rooms E100 to E200 with taxis to airport and that fantastic breakfast.

This is a rather stylish, calm riad in the best part of the medina owned by two Scottish brothers who have cornered the market in Moroccan hospitality (they also have a property in Marrakech). The house has been painstakingly restored and tastefully decorated to include 21st century five-star comforts without compromising on local craftsmanship and details.
Riad Tizwa Fes is a personal and intimate Moroccan townhouse with charming and welcoming English-speaking staff containing nine double bedrooms and wi-fi in all the rooms. This place is an oasis we will definitely return to again and again!
An amazing house (dar) in the medina. It's been beautifully restored by the very friendly owner Maria. During our stay in the house we were looked after by an amazing and friendly housekeeper Attaib. This place really has that wow factor and was a real 'home' to return to after a day in the bustle of the medina.
Meals can be prepared for you by a neighbour and it really is worth taking up this offer as her food was some of the best we had at some of the best prices!

Derb al aqiba 1 bis- zqaq lbghal, qettanine, Medina Fez. Morocco
Restored riad within the medina walls. A real hidden oasis with just two rooms and two suites set around a tiled courtyard with citrus trees and fountain. Slightly eccentric and very friendly German owner cooks the fantastic food - a mixture of Moroccan and European dishes with local ingredients. Good value with rooms from €65.
