“The best place we stayed in Morocco!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

We just got home after an amazing trip to Morocco. We were there for 13 days, travelled around so we were staying at many different riads, hotels, kasbahs and auberges BUT without a doubt this Riad Ahlam in Fes was our favorite place to stay out of them all!!
When we arrived we were invited for a cup of warm tea (horrible rain outside) and both the two women at the Riad and the manager was absolutely amazingly helpful. Before we went out to walk around the manager insisted to take us to the roof (amazing views) so he could show us the overview of the medina. He was there anytime we needed help or advise. The two women in the kitchen provided us with DELICIOUS breakfast and were always smiling and friendly!
The Riad is located on the other side of a parking lot than the more busy part of the Medina and we liked this a lot. The area is relaxed and safe and the parking lot makes it so easy to find a taxi when leaving and arriving to the riad and Medina.
And we could say many more positive things about this place..
So yes this is the place to stay in Fes!!-and Morocco in general!

We spent three nights in a suite at this riad. It is conveniently located, nicely furnished in characteristic moroccon style and very clean. I would equate to a 4 star hotel, but without the centralized facilities that a hotel would offer. The breakfast was outstanding and we also had two dinners that the cook, Fatima, prepared. In a eight-day tour or Morocco, it remained some of the best food we tasted and at a very good price. I recommend it unreservedly.

We stayed two nights in Riad Ahlam, and had the best breakfasts ever - really delicious and huge, everything from omlettes to strawberries, and SUCH a selection. Our bedroom was comfortable, though it was hard to get warm because it was such a cold month. The heating system was a fairly inefficient electric blower set high on the wall. I guess riads are not really designed for winter. That was our only complaint though - staff were friendly and helpful, and its a beautiful place.

This is a beautiful Riad, with very friendly, helpful people. The breakfest was the best we ever had in marocco, with a great variety of foods. Dinner was delicious and served with a smile. Great view from teh teras.
