We booked this riad because of it's #1 rating on Trip Advisor and it actually exceeded our expectations (the pictures don't begin to do it justice). The phrase "hidden gem" is possibly a bit overused but that's exactly what this riad was, tucked away within the crazy lanes of the Fes medina. The place was spectacular, beautifully decorated by the...

A wonderful experience our hosts were the best we came across in Morocco, even the dog Darwin was very friendly. If your going to Fes don't miss this. Also try to take a cooking lesson in the kitchen my wife really enjoyed it.

My husband and I will daydream about returning here. Yasmine and Alex make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. The whole riad is stunningly decorated with beautiful objects elegantly placed. From the roof terrace to the bar lounge to the individual rooms, the whole place is breathtaking. They have an in-house dinner which should not to be...

Can't recommend Riad le Calife highly enough. Best place we stayed in Morocco. Great location, stunningly beautiful Riad, super friendly staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Yasmine, Alex - we had a great time. Thanks so much!

Riad Le Calife was one of the highlights in our 14-day trip around Morocco. The place is unique, combining the autenticity of the traditional riad with the charm and confort of a boutique hotel. Nice details, like a radio-alarm clock with a good selection of music that comes from a pen drive, a mini bar (not common in most of...

Like everybody else who has reviewed Riad Le Calife we were blown away by it – the ambience of the place together with the warmth of Alex, Yasmine and the staff makes this the top place to stay in Fes. I cannot add to the reviews – they say everything about the place in terms of luxury, food (except you...

We have never visited anywhere where we've had such warm and friendly stay. The benefit of Calife being a small place and the attention to detail that they put in means that you get a very personal experience. Yasmin and Alex have clearly put a lot of time and love into making a very stylish and intimate riad. The room...

Riad Le Calife (and Fez in general) was the best part of our honeymoon. We stayed there 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer, as we truly were sad to leave. The staff (headed by Alexandre and Yasmine the friendly owners) was very welcoming and helpful from our arrival on. One of the employees came to meet us...

We were so sad to leave Riad Le Calife after just two days and wished we could have stayed longer. Yasmine and Alex were excellent hosts and made sure we had an incredible experience in Fes. From the restaurant recomendations to the car service at the train station and the last-minute massages they booked for us, our entire stay was...
