My girlfriend and myself had an amazing stay at Riad Le Calife and the biggest reasons why boil down to two points: the staff was incredibly friendly and hospitable and the hotel itself was downright comfortable and stunning. Our trip to Fes started off on the wrong foot when our incoming bus dropped us off at the incorrect station. Our...

Riad Le Calife totally exceeded my expectations. When it comes to conveying the beauty of this riad - the pictures you see online barely scratch the surface. This riad is absolutely stunning. The décor and the layout are amazing and the attention to detail gives this riad the appearance of a fine museum. Everything you encounter during your stay is...

Yasmine and her husband have created a real haven in the middle of the buzzling Medina, thanks to their charme, great taste and a wonderful team at Riad Calife, which was always welcoming and extremely attentive. Location is superb, parking extremely easy, rooms (and especially...

We found " le Calife " through tripadvisor and indeed all the nice reviews you read are true. The Riad is beautifully redecorated and honors the Fes cultural heritage. It sits as a small oasis of 5*luxury and tranquillity in the old médina, yet is still easy to reach by car. The warm and very personal hospitality of Alexandre and...

We spent 3 nights here on our first visit to Fes and loved it. You approach up a narrow winding alley in the old city medina, but once inside, you are in a light-filled central courtyard with trees and a fountain. Jasmine and Alex, the owners, were perfectly lovely, very present, and very helpful. 7 rooms with comfortable beds and...

This delightful Riad is more like a 5* boutique hotel. Their attention to detail is superb, with every part of the Riad decorated with precision and thought. We stayed in Emerald Room which is spacious and light with the stained glass windows opening out onto the central courtyard. The details of the room made for the luxury experience, with thick...

If you are looking for a luxurious yet affordable riad in Fes, look no further!

We ended our trip in Morocco with a stay at Riad Le Calife. Alex and Yasmine went out of their way to make us feel at home at their riad! They helped us book a spa day and told us about key places to visit in Fes. The riad was stunning and it was easy to tell that the place...
