I visited Riad El Yacout a few weeks ago with a group of friends. The time we spent in Fes was exceptional. The city is magical and so full of life!

Situated down a narrow alley Riad El Yacout hides its Moroccan beauty from the eyes of the world. Stepping in through the entrance door the public areas are full of charm and tranquillity. Mint tea and Moroccan pasties are served as one checks in and the hosts are gracious and kind. We were given the choice of two rooms. Unfortunately...

If it's good enough for Bono, it's certainly out of this world! (Yes he stayed there, they have a tasteful little photo near the entryway.)
