Wonderful Riad de Calife
Beautiful Riad in the middle of the Medina in Fes. Wonderful hosts Alex and Jasmine who could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Room was beautiful, very clean. Food excellent. We had an evening meal on the terrace specially prepared by their staff which was top quality. Would definitely go back.

Such A Wonderful Riad!
We decided to make a quick stop in Fez during our visit to Morocco. After staying at this Riad - I wish we’d spent our entire trip here!! The Riad is simply incredible. It’s chic and meticulously maintained. The attention to detail is next to none. It was an oasis we never wanted to leave! We had a super early morning flight which required us to leave by 3:30a - the staff was so wonderful and so accommodating. Thank you to Alex, Yasmine, Meryeme and the entire team for making our stay perfect. We will be back!!

This is an oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the old Médina in Fes. Hosts Alex and Yasmine are simply fabulous and their staff are simply delightful. The character and charm and the excellent taste makes the stay. The in-house chef is fantastic. The best food we had in Morocco. You must stay here. I loved every minute and was sad to leave!

Magical place
It was a great experience. The owners were extremely warm and always made sure we felt at home. You can feel the love the owners have for their riad in all the little decoration details. It was magic.

Our favourite spot in Morocco!
Riad Le Calife was incredible! We spent two weeks in Morocco- 5 riads, one desert tent and a hotel - and Riad Le Calife was by far our favourite! Everything was spot on - the ambiance is great, Yasmine and Meryeme are fabulous and soooooo helpful, the food is great and the decor is beautiful! Couldn’t recommend it more highly! I’d go back to Fes just to spend time there! A haven in the hectic city!

the perfect oasis in Fes
What a little gem in the middle of Fes! It's my first time traveling to North Africa and to a Muslim predominant country, it was definitely an eye opening experience. location - right in the heart of media and easily accessible by taxi from taxi aiport. The riad arranged airport transport at a very reasonable price, and the staff was waiting for us to help with the luggage when we arrive. room - the room is very spacious and well appointed. It was better than the pictures on line, beautifully decorated with all the intricate Moroccan details. The bathroom is large, with separate shower and toilet, and a large bathtub. Super clean and comfortable, and well stock with all the amenities (slippers, bathrobe) that one need during vacation. The riad itself is beautiful and tastefully decorated with all the antiquities the owner collected over the years. Service - the service is impeccable. The riad owners Yasmin and Alex take such excellent care of the guests and make sure you have the best time in Fes. They help you with the itinerary and restaurant recommendations, walk through the map, and paid great attention to every detail of the stay. There are only 7 rooms in the riad, so you really feel that the service is very personal. From the welcome mint tea on arrival, to the cookies in the room baked by the riad's chef, I felt very pampered by all the staff. Value - great value, breakfast included, and much more comfortable than hotels.
