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.

The experience at this beautiful Riad was the most warm and welcoming we've encountered throughout our travels. Najib and his wife were incredibly interesting, helpful and kind, and made us feel right at home immediately. The location was perfect, close to all the action of the Medina, but in a peaceful safe street if you needed to retreat for some quiet time. Breakfast was also beautiful and served in immaculate surroundings. I cannot recommend this Riad highly enough and would love to go back.

Such a welcoming and friendly family run riad. We felt very safe, comfortable and we had great food recommendations from the family. Good breakfast too and were able to keep our bags / use facilities past check out time until our train. Location very easy to find (challenging in Fez) and near the Blue Gate. Would definately stay here again.

Dar Kenza is absolutely beautiful. We were made to feel very welcome and given a beautifully decorated clean room. The air conditioning is very effective and we had a pleasant sleep. In the morning we were greeted with a sumptuous breakfast which was by far the most luxurious I have ever had in a raid or hostel. Great value for money. I would highly recommend this small family run riad. Not the place to go if you are looking to meet people or party though.

I can't say enough nice things about this place, the owner and his wife made our stay in Fes really wondering. The guesthouse is GORGEOUS, the terrace is amazing, and the location is good. The owner helped us plan some activities such as going to the hammam, and even brought me some medicine when I came down with a cold. They are wonderful people and I highly recommend this riad.

This Riad in Fez is absolutely stunning! Najib and his wife, the couple that run the hotel, are lovely people who will make you feel at home in Fez. When we arrived we were greeted to tea on a terrace that overlooks the whole city and were given extensive recommendations on places to go/eat. We also had to leave very early and Najib made sure that was still had breakfast and helped us find a taxi to the bus station. I cannot recommend Dar Kenza highly enough!

Be very careful in Fez. All they are about is ripping of the tourist and they are not nice people. The owner of Dar Kenza arranged a guide for me. His name is Abdul and he is missing an arm . Do not go with this man as he will rip you off. Guides take you to shops and then they try and push you into buying so then the guide gets commission. Kez, in my opinion was the worst place in morocco that i had been to.

A peaceful heaven in the crowded medina. Situated close to restaurant area. The rooms are quite luxurious and there are only few of them around the beautiful courtyard. The owners are really helpfull and one positively feels being their guests.

Great place to stay. Beautifull rooms, nearby the center/old medina, good guide and helpfull owners. Everything you need for a rest while visiting the crowded medina. Very quiet rooms and a nice breakfast in the morning makes your visit to Fez very comfortable. Englisch speaking owner knows what he is talking about; he knows the place and people and can arrange you everything. Superb.

Dar Kenza is the best hostel I've ever stayed in :) the room and the entire hostel - just amazing, cozy, colorful. Our host were incredibly kind and helpful, I don't have enough words to thank them for the amazing stay we had in Fes. The breakfast was more than just delicious, plus the location of the hostel is really convenient. Hope to come back to Fes and Dar Kenza soon :)

The staff is so incredibly friendly. You really feel very welcomed and it's like having a home in Morocco. The breakfast was so good, served at the rooftop terrace of the riad including fruits, Moroccan pancakes, bread, cheese, jam, coffee, orange juice etc. Enjoy your stay there!

This place is great!!! I know it is a little difficult to find but I think it is like that when you are in Morocco. The place is safe, just right next to the medina, clean, comfortable, and the best is the service. The manager his wife and his brother are just the best. they were so helpful, welcoming and just wonderful. We got there late night after along trip and they share their food with us, how great is that?. Then the breakfast was delicious and fresh. Awesome!! Thank you!!

Room, bedroom and everything else was very clean, nicely decorated and definitely worth the money (we had a deluxe double bedroom). The breakfast was the best we had in Marokko yet, and we could decide the time. We were allowed to use the kitchen, and the guy working there told us all the time to feel like home. Thank you for making the stay in Fès so nice! We can recommend your Dar to everyone who wants so stay in Fès.

Fantastic Riad! Exceptionally welcoming and helpful. It's located on the outskirts of the medina which is perfect as you can escape the hassle and bustle but are still walking distance to all the main sights. Was also safe at night with security in the street and cameras, not to mention always people about in the area. It is not somewhere you stay to meet other guests, but a perfect place to stay. Breakfast on the terrace was amazing. Best place I stayed in Morocco.

This Dar is very well situated (5 minutes away from Bab Bou Jouloud). The room we have been allocated (1st floor) was very nice and spacious. The breakfast served in the morning was as amazing as the view! faultless!
