We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were very friendly and helpful.


Najib and his wife really contributed to our trip to Fes with their hospitality, personal touch, beautiful Moroccan style accommodation and great breakfast. If we'd get back to Fes one day, we'll definitely choose Dar Kenza again!


Rashida and Naj are a wonderful, hospitable couple who have beautifully restored an old riad in Fes into a welcoming and amazing home for travellers. They genuinely care about all of their guests and looked after us like their own family. The facilities are excellent, the wifi was the fastest we had in all of our 3 week stay in Morocco, the location was perfect and we can't thank Naj or Rashida enough for everything they did for us!


The place is close to Batha so it is easy to orientate yourself to the medina and back to the hostel. Were were a group of 4 girls. The hosts were very friendly, they helped us a lot and we always felt safe. They provided us with good and warm breakfast and we were allowed to use the kitchen. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you very much!


Everything was perfect!


Great location, very warm welcome, friendly and helpful hosts, really quiet to get a good night's sleep, amazing breakfast with olives, Moroccon sweets and eggs, amazingly clean and well maintained. Absolute recommendation!


Quite simply one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. A beautiful small hotel with traditional decor and roof terrace in a perfect location. The breakfast is again very traditionally Moroccan with fresh food and generous portions. Best of all however are the owners who were kind and welcoming at all times. It felt more like we were house guests than simply customers with the owners going out of their way to make us feel at home and help us especially when one of our party fell ill.


Very nice family... I expressed interest in getting couscous at a restaurant (seems that Fridays are the "big" day for couscous in Morocco). When the neighbourhood restaurant did not offer the dish, our host and hostess whipped up a big batch for me and my friend to eat! Very beautiful dar in a pleasant location.

Gorgeous riad, the staff is incredibly nice and helpful. Great breakfast. A shame we only stayed there one night!


Thank you to Rashida and her Husband for looking after us while in Fes, this Riad is excellent with large, clean rooms and a great breakfast! The Riad has been fully renovated in Moroccan style so if you'd like to live like a local Dar Kenza is a must and Rashida will treat you like family making your stay comfortable. They went out of there way to help us find our way around and can give you maps and local advice on the area. If returning to Morocco, I'd choose Fes and Dar Kenza again easily!


It was a very beautiful Dar (Riad), andaluz style. The owner was very kind. He gave us a map and pointed up the most important places to go! He also helped us finding a guide to take us to Chefchaouen and our final destiny, Tangier. His wife made us a great breakfast, including the day that we departed at 5am. It was a very good experience.


Fantastic view over the medina and mountains beyond, with excellent breakfast daily and a welcoming host couple that make your stay comfortable. Some improvements: - We arrived by car and were not told that the hostel would be very difficult to find on foot, let alone with a car! - We had a bad experience with a car 'guardian' where we had to pay. We weren't warned about this In short, Narj (the owner) needs to think about how best to welcome hire car guests in future.


Amazing!!! Home away from home. Loved it. Great breakfast!!


We had a amazing time at Dar Kenza - a beautiful place with a warm & friendly welcome! Highly recommended!
