Dar Al Andalous - Riad

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room we stayed in wasn't so much a room as a suite with a separate living room, spacious bathroom, and bedroom upstairs. The beauty of the inner courtyard extended to the rooms, with detailed tile work and stunning colors. Everyone who works there is incredibly friendly, and most spoke English. I would highly recommend you do dinner at the riad at least once. It's a bit pricey at 250 dirham a person, but it is delicious. Best couscous I had my entire week in Morocco.

The patio and common areas are beautiful. We got a room on the second floor, spacious and clean. The only inconvenience was the bathroom one level below the bedroom (still private). The breakfast could be better. It doesn't look fresh. They have some prepared food that they warm up with a microwave. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The riad is conveniently located at walking distance from Bab Boujeloud not too deep in the Medina. It is easy to reach and there are good parking options not too far.

We booked 3 rooms for our family of 6. Rooms not available before 3pm. Beautiful riad well located to visit the medina. Two bedrooms ok but one under the roof not so nice. Bathrooms need some refurbishment. Breakfast was a very bad experience. Less than bear minimum. Service was poor and slow. It is obviously all about saving expenses and it shows badly. Pretend smile...and never an apology is making this experience very average despite the beauty of the riad. Fake sense of service is a terrible thing when you pretend to care for customers.

Booked here for 9 nights - got there - the room was totally mis-represented with the images on both the Riad's site as well as booking.com's site. We wanted two beds and were escourted to the top floor with a double bed in a loft. Not what we booked !! The staff were very helpful in finding alternative accommodation for us.

We have stayed at Dar Al Andalous twice now, and hope to return again in the future. The riad is just beautiful and in an excellent location. You would never know such a lovely property is hidden behind the wall in the alley, which is true throughout the medina. The owners and staff are just fantastic, and made us feel like we were part of the family!

Very helpfull staff, kind and patient, the maid, cook and Rushid specially. Location in a quiet alley, 200 mts from the medina, 300 mts from the Blue Gate (Bab Boujloud) Traditional decoration and furniture. The room we got was spacious, with a sitting area, big bath and 2 sinks. Breakfast satisfying and fresh. Specify your needs because they have different kinds of rooms.

I could not image a better place to stay in Fes. The location was perfect, the food was amazing and hosts were very warm. The rooms are gorgeous too, with each overlooking the renovated courtyard. Our hosts were a warm family that made me want to stay much longer than 3 days.

We stayed here for a weekend at the start of an epic Morocco trip, joined by 12 other friends. Dar El Andalous was able to accommodate us all. The rooms were all ornate and quite unique; ours was 2-stories with a living room below and bedroom above. The management and staff were so lovely and welcoming, they worked very hard to accommodate our large group and varied needs. We took advantage of their cooking one evening, and it was one of the best meals of our entire trip. To top it off, they allowed us to invite a local traditional music group who we met in the street to play a concert on the rooftop. Everyone in the riad joined us for a jubilant dance party and it was awesome! The location is only a 5 minute walk to the gorgeous blue gate of the medina, ideally situated.

Not easy to find, though parking is on the street just around the corner (guarded, therefore safe, for 20 Dhm per night). The hotel building itself is fantastic, reminiscent of the luxuries of the past. We were warmly greeted with a cup of mint tea and chose to have our dinner there (250dhms per person - expensive but very good food and they catered to our specific dietary wishes). We also took a Hammam (like a Turkish bath) which was a very nice way to unwind. Look around and compare prices though. The room was fantastic, breakfast was the best we had in Morocco and plentiful. Say hello to Rashid, whose smile lit up our stay.

After traveling down hot, busy, crowded streets, the Dar Al Andalous was like an oasis. This Riad with 12 rooms had a grand lobby with beautiful tile work, gurgling fountain and green plants which put us immediately at peace. We were greeted by Zahra, so genteel and welcoming. We were 2 couples spending 5 nights here, and each of our rooms were very spacious with a large sitting area and 4-poster beds. Our meals were truly gourmet; several kinds of pancakes and eggs and fruits, yogurt and honey for breakfast, fantastic soups and tagines of all kinds, and Moroccan salads and wonderful desserts for dinner. Rashid served us well and was always there to pour more coffee, bring more goodies, etc. For finding places to go, Ottman and Zahra had many ideas for us, and Ottman even volunteered to walk us to a nearby park. The cooks and housekeepers were so nice. The whole experience was marvelous, and we hope to go there again.
