Fes Hotels

Fès has hotels to suit every pocket and taste. One of the best ways to soak up the city’s atmosphere is to stay in a riad, a traditional medina house with rooms based around a central courtyard. These beautifully restored old residences offer boutique-hotel style accommodations with personal service and authentic home-cooked food.

The hotels in Fès below have been grouped into three different price categories:
Luxury (1,250 to 2,250 dirhams)
Moderate (850 to 1,250 dirhams)
Cheap (under 850 dirhams)
These rates are based on double occupancy of twin or double room at standard rate, including breakfast for two and taxes.


 

Luxury

Palais Faraj

Live in the lap of luxury at this spa-resort in the southern end of the medina.
