We had some wonderful days in Dar Seffarine. The building alone is worth a visit: a very well restored riad in the heart of the medina of Fes. The room (suite) was very nice decorated en fitted in the style of the building.
Was in this lovely house from 12 to 16/04/12,apart from a cold weather,staying in this wonderful place was so lovely, was in the William room which is so lovely.after the chaotic time in the medina it is such to come back to this gorgeous sanctuary...More
We stayed for 4 days and had the most beautiful suite on the second floor. The hosts are incredibly nice. Breakfast is sumptuous and always different. Dinners are very special as well. After 10 days traveling around Morocco we were quite tired of the usual...More
If you want to feel like Scheherazade then book into Dar Seffarine. This Riad is situated in the Metal workers area and while one is trodding down a rather dirty, dark and dank alley, the heart drops below the stomach, but suddenly the Door opens...More
Though we stayed in this place about 2 years ago (Feb 2010), I still remember it like yesterday. The absolutely beautiful room, hosts Ala & Kate, the food and the company. We love staying in B&Bs as it gives you a better view into culture...More

I completely understand wanting to have some choices for dinner. We walked throughout the medina and I think there are certainly restaurants nearby, or not too far of a walk from Dar Seffarine. In terms of safety, although the streets in the Medina may seem a little dark at night, we did not feel unsafe once we were familiar with the area. The first night we arrived in Morocco and we walked through the the Medina to get to the riad I was a little uncomfortable, but after seeing everything in the light of day and walking around a bit I felt totally safe the following evening.
If you decide to stay at Dar Seffarine, have them arrange transport from the airport for you, it was so easy and inexpensive. finding your way around the Medina can be quite overwhelming.
The staff there will definitely provide you with directions and remember when you are walking through the Medina, be careful who you take directions from. Many boys and men will tell you that a street is closed so that they can guide you and they would want payment.
It was such a great place to stay I would definitely stay there again, even if it meant walking a little bit further for dinner. Looking at the map, it looks quite far from restaurants, but I don't think it would be longer than 10 minutes or so to most of them.
Hope this helps.
