n Riad Meski we really had the experience of living inside the Medina of Fes. It's a beautiful familyhome in the middle of the Medina. The host is a very friendly man that is always willing to help or to arrange different excursions for you. The room was of excellent quality, considering the age of the building, very clean with a comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious. Beautiful roofterrace with view of the Medina. Should we ever come back to Fes, we'll definitely contact Ahmed again.

We absolutely loved this Riad! The staff was lovely, we loved the space we had in our own room. Everything was clean and we had a wonderful time. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!


We got to Fez and the owner of Riad Meski (Ahmed) put us up at his cousins Riad (Aya) which was not nearly as nice as Riad Meski. He said it was due to bathroom issues. He did not notify of us beforehand to give us an option to cancel to avoid wasting time moving around, presumably because he still wanted our business. He was resistant to discounting the price at our request and threatened to call the police when we said he wasn't being fair. Very scary man and sleezy businessman.


We enjoyed a great stay at the Riad Meski. Ahmed and his family were extremely kind and welcoming, making us feel at home and recommending places to visit around the city. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Breakfast on the roof terasse was absolutely delicious. The location was ideal as it was within the medina but close enough to the main road for easy navigation. I will definitely recommend this hostel for friends visiting Fes! Thanks for a great stay!

Pro: beautiful riad, beautiful clean room with bathroom, friendly helpful staff, we got pick up from Bab Guissa, located in the Medina, good breakfast Contra: we got no key for our room but were told not to worry, at least the front door was always closed; in the nearby location everything is closed in the evening (5-10min walk at Bab Boujloud you find a lot of restaurants), our first evening the staff showed us an extremely expensive restaurant, no sufficient heating in winter

Great Hostel! The Staff is helpfull and nice and the atmosphere was the best I have ever had. I would recommend this place to everyone.


Riad Meski was super! The location is great. It is inside the old Medina of Fès and just 5 minutes walking to the parkinglot if you want to do a trip that needs a car. The food they serve in the riad meski is great especially the pastina. But what suprised us the most was how friendly the staff was. Achmed Meski will help you with everything from basic questions to arranging guides and trips for you. Riad meski is an authentic looking, super located, friendly staffed bed and breakfast.
