The host's of Riad Dar Kenza were very welcoming! They made sure our stay in Fez was enjoyable. Which it was! The Riad is beautiful. It felt like we were staying in a palace and the location very close to the medina. But it was nice to relax afterwards on the terrace. We definitely recommend Riad Dar Kenza!
We loved your place! Two American women traveling together. It was so comfortable to stay with you. Thank you!
A very well restored riad. Beautiful features throughout. The room was nice although a little dark. Although the place and staff were lovely, we felt it lacked some atmosphere and community spirit that other hostels we have stayed in have in abundance.
Nice small hotel, good central location, family environment, confortable and clean room, good breakfast and a very friendly and helpful staff that helped us with all the requests we had. The place its in a narrow and creepy street, but there is a security man there, so me and my friend felt more secure. Good cost-benefit place to stay in Fez, I definitelly recomend it.
Really cool place, authentic! The people working there really nice and professional!! an authentic Moroccan house!!!
Perfect stay. Our hosts were lovely and helpful, the room was spacious and well decorated, the breakfast was plentiful and varied and the location was excellent. We loved returning to the beautiful air conditioned room (plus the upstairs terrace for some tanning)- we felt cared for and relaxed. Also the wifi was strong and reliable- possibly better than my home! Definitely stay here, it's perfect.
The four of us truly loved staying at Dar Kenza. The pictures do not do this home justice. You are greeted with a fresh cup of mint tea that is nothing like anything you have ever tasted. Every morning we were given a traditional delicious breakfast and our hosts even woke up early one morning because we were going on a desert tour. Nothing was better than coming back to this beautiful home after a long day outside. The outside terrace is a truly beautiful view.We will definitely be back.

I had a great time staying at Dar Kenza, given it was only for a short amount of time, the host was so nice and respectful. The location was great, right by the Medina where there is a lot to see. The host also was very helpful in giving directions and the connections he had around were beneficial. Totally will return next time!

Both the place and the staff really made Fez for us - welcoming and informative!
Wonderful experience! The family was very friendly, the breakfast huuuuge and delicious, the riad in general was comfortable, very beautifully decorated and well located to reach every part of the medina. I only wish I'd had more time there!!
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay at your Dar. We had a lovely time here (one of our favourite stays in Morocco) and felt very welcome. Great location, beautiful house and terrace as well as friendly owners who were always happy to recommend restaurants and sites in Fes and ensure our safety. Thank you for organising our trip to the Sahara too - we survived! - it was an amazing experience!

Great location, very close from the heart of the Fes's Medina. Good value for the money and one of the best hostels that we stayed in Morocco, but they could improve the breakfast (we had bread (1 for 2 people), omelette, tea or coffee, jam, cream cheese, honey, orange juice and olives), because for the money that we payed they should offer more things to eat considering the very cheap price of the food in Morocco. Very good hot shower and wifi connection. The owner was very helpful and kind!!!
This is the perfect place and Najib and his wife are perfect hosts. Dar Kenza is located in a very clean and safe part of the Medina, the rooms are beautiful, the value for money is great, and the roof terrace a lovely spot to hang out after exploring Fez. Thank you so much again Najib for picking is up in the middle of the night when we got lost upon arrival, for the great stay, and for the long discussions about Morocco, Europe, politics and life! Hope to see you again! Melvyn & Martijn
Amazing stay!! Centrally located, perfectly clean and safe!! Our hosts were amazing and they helped us map out a little route through the old medina so we could avoid all the hassles of getting lost. They were super helpful in food suggestions and tips of things to do. Loved the location right near the batha fountain, not far from the blue gate and they made it even better. Beautiful home and great roof terrace too! A must stay, I recommend for anyone and everyone
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!
