WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

  • Hidden at the end of a narrow passage way, the door at Riad Ibn Khaldoun opens to a beautiful tiled central court. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was most accommodating and made us feel like family. A plus was to see the owners collection of old costumes...not sure if he still does this. A very pleasant and happy stay!

  • Tucked away down an alley but a real wow factor when you open the door into the riad. Beautifully decorated - we had a lovely, large bedroom with four poster bed. Felt like being in a royal palace. Meals on the roof garden with exceptional views over Fez medina. We thank the owner and Ahmed for all of their help and making us so welcome and comfortable. They even let us stay later in the day for our evening flight home. Would strongly recommend this riad.
