We all enjoyed our stay here. The host and staff are very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is just great. The location is good, very close to the medina. And one more thing to mention, the breakfast is the best that we had in Morocco! We definitely recommend Riad Dar Kenza! : )

We loved our stay- the owners treated us like family. The room was good sized for all 4 of us, and super clean! We could walk to everything and there were good restaurants nearby!

Our stay at Dar Kenza was amazing! It is in a great location (just outside of the Old City) and has a breathtaking rooftop terrace. Najib, the owner, went out of his way to make us feel at home. He provided us with maps and gave us plenty of recommendations. His hospitality truly made our time in Fez unforgettable! Plus, the homemade breakfast served at the hostel every morning was incredible - easily the best meal of the trip. You won't be disappointed!

I had a great stay!! The riad is just 5 mins walk from the blue gate, great location. The alley may seem quiet at night but there is actually a security guy guarding the area. Najib ( who speaks very good English ) and his wife are great host, we felt very welcome. Najib's wife actually woke up very early one morning ( 6ish ) to make us breakfast because we had to head out early. Breakfast is delicious, infact it is probably the best breakfast spread I had among other riads! Shukran Bezef !!

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.

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.

We never saw the other guests during our stay at the riad, so definitely book if you're more interested in keeping to yourself. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was good. The directions are very easy to follow, and I had no problem finding this place.

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!

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!!!
