My partner and I stayed in The Riad Le Calife for two nights in March. We have visited Fez a number of times and stayed in some very nice riads in the past but nothing like this riad. I could write an essay not a review that is how much we enjoyed it. I will make it as brief as poss. The riad itself is amazing, soon as you enter you feeled instantly calmed by the beautiful scents and aromas and the tranquil atmosphere of the place. Soumia greeted us at the door and gave us a warm welcome and a mint tea, she gave us a brief outline of the city and how to navigate the medina before showing us around the riad then to our room. The room was a feast for the eyes with beautiful decor, soft lighting, colored glass windows and some really nice little touches such as his and hers bathrobes, complimentary bath wash and shampoo and soap, his and hers sink. Piping hot water for a bath or shower, bowl of fresh fruit. The owners Yasmine and Alex are attentive and caring without being overbearing and the staff are wonderful, in particular Fatima the cook. Some may consider the evening meal to be a bit pricey in comparisson to what you can get in the medina but there is no comparisson to the culinary delights Fatima can muster up. Theres a starter, main and dessert followed by mint tea and pastries, which we never tried because we were so full after the other courses. I am a vegetarian, a very fussy eater and something of a foodie but the food i ate at this riad was some of the best food i have ever ate in my life. My only regret was not being able to bring Fatima home with us. If we go back to Fez we will without a doubt stay here again, this trip will be one of our more memorable because of the Riad Le Calife. So thank you Yasmine Alex and all the staff .
