Riad Verus

9.5
The aim of the owners of Riad Verus is to make your stay in this beautiful and traditional Fes Riad fantastic, ensuring that you have a full and enjoyable holiday. The philosophy behind Riad Verus is to give a client an affordable luxury accommodation and to let you feel that you're staying in exquisite surroundings where no corners are cut. Riad Verus was once owned by a wealthy Fassi family in the much sought after Batha neighbourhood. Guesthouses don't come more charming and fascinating than this. Being in prime location means that Riad Verus is easily accessible for taxis and only a 5 minute walk from the famous entry gate: Bab Beujeloud and the beautifully restored Place Batha. Riad Verus was purchased in 2009 and fully restored to the finest detail of traditional Moroccan craftmanship. The owners, a couple with more than 12 years in the hotel industry, have both had a dream since childhood to own their own lodging establishment. This riad is restored to the finest artisanal standards and complies with all the government regulations. Consisting of 5 beautifully restored rooms surrounded by a traditional courtyard, this riad is centrally located on Talla Kebira which is one of the main cobblestone streets that flows up and down the media of Fes.  A tourist tax of 4 Euros per night per person is not included in the price and will be paid to the riad.

Riad SOUAFINE is a charming riad situated in the medina of Fez specifically located in the palace quarter on the hill of ZIAT. Nestled near the historic center, its prime location offers an unforgettable, panoramic view of the ancient media of Fes. Bernard, the on-site owner, and Hassan, his colleague, are excited to welcome you to a wonderful experience of hospitality as they hope their riad can be a "home away from home" for you.  At the riad's center is an Arab- Andalusian patio complete with Orange and Lemon trees growing around an exceptional 17th century fountain made of Carrara marble. Surrounding this patio's exterior are four lounges which offer beautiful spaces for relaxation and privacy for all guests. This spacious riad (over 1000 m2) offers six large suites ranging from 38 to 50 m2. Loaded with all the modern conveniences, this sober and spacious riad has been renovated in traditional décor by local artisans.  Relax on the large terraces overlooking the ancient media while you enjoy the pleasure of the solarium, lounges, and the open gazebo. The dinners severed by request of our guests are, in-and-of-themselves, a voyage through the culinary specialties of Fes.
 

Ryad Mabrouka - FES

Ryad Mabrouka is one of the most unique riads in Fes due to its original architecture and its large bay-window opening facing its peaceful garden. This view enhances the riad with light and provides the guest with a sensational and unique view of the ancient Fez medina.  Pierre-Marie and Caroline invite you to come and discover this unique riad with its rich hand-crafted decorative work, fabricated by the craftsmen who have made Fez famous throughout the centuries. Enjoy the panoramic view from the terrace and dining room or rest in the riad's garden oasis filled with beautiful flowers and trees (including bougainvillea, hibiscus, orange trees and roses).The atmosphere of this riad is a subtle mixture of the ancient Moroccan traditions derived from the imprint of the family owners, the spirit and feel of Fez itself, and a passion for the better things in life.   An attentive Moroccan staff will cater to your every need as they anxiously wait for a chance to demonstate the rich depth and kindness of Moroccan hospitality.  Ryad Mabrouka is ideally located with easy access to taxis and parking.  It is centrally located in a quiet place, only 3mn by foot from Talaa Kebira which is the main street of the medina of Fes and the one that is traveled most by tourists becuase of the shopping and cultural opportunities it presents.

One goes to Fes to experience the other-worldliness of the ancient medina. In fact, Harrison Ford called Fes the most romantic city in the world. To get the most out of your trip, it is important where you stay. Do you choose a hotel, or do you adventure out and experience a riad?

Here are 5 Reasons to Choose a Riad Instead of a Hotel in Fes.

1. "The pleasure of Fes is its secluded riads," Stanley Stewart, 2 time winner of the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award, Travelex Travel Writer of the Year, and regular travel columnist for the London Times. Expert advice. Enough said.

2. "What's the point of travelling if you don't get a flavour of the place you're visiting?" - Juliet Kinsman, editor-in-chief of Mr & Mrs. Smith, Boutique Travel Specialists. You come to Fes to be enchanted by the historic medina. Staying in a traditional riad is simply the best way to do that. As Kinsman noted, "It's a world away from the anonymity of identikit chain hotels."

3. It was good enough for Bono. When Bono and U2 wanted to get creative inspiration for their upcoming album, they thought the city of Fes was the best place to do that. When they wanted a place to stay that would recharge, them they chose a riad.

"We got this little riad, a small hotel with a courtyard in the middle and set up the band there, with a square of sky over our head... We'd record during the day and then disappear into windy streets of the medina at night. It was an inspiring experience and a drummer's paradise," Bono said.

Here is a pic, originally posted on U2.com

4. Personal Care and Service: Riad's pride themselves on their service. At a large chain hotel, you come in anonymity, you stay in anonymity and you live as an anonymous servant to the rules and procedures of the hotel. You are known as "Room 204."

At a riad, it's just the opposite.

You are warmly and personally welcomed. Staff are attentive to your needs and cater to your desires. "Would you like a tour of the medina?" Of course, we would be happy to arrange that. "Do you want a massage?" We know just the person. You are known by name. Your holiday matters.

5. Location, Location, Location. As noted earlier, the reason to come to Fes is to explore the medina. It is where the life is happening.

Traditional riads in Fes put you in the perfect spot to walk out your door and experience all that Fes has to offer. Hotels in Fes put you in the perfect spot to need to look for a taxi, drive through town and finally arrive at the place that has all the attractions you came to see.
