Hotel Dar Bensouda - Fès

4 star Hotel Fès

14 Zkak El Bghel, Elquettanine - Fès

Price starting from MAD 1192.53

Nestled in the very heart of the Fez Medina, the luxury hotel Dar Bensouda welcomes guests in an enchanting setting. This oasis of peacefulness allows guests to wander through the alleyways past university buildings and beautifully detailed mosques, and the maze of narrow streets concealing architectonic masterworks around any corner.

Sights all around you! Single travelers, groups and families staying at this Fes city accommodation near the Al Karaouine Mosque are in an ideal starting point to go for a stroll through the scenic Medina historic town center, bargain with spice and jewelery salesmen on the main souk market or admire scarves, clothes and leather goods in the world-famous tannery district. Whether for a short romantic trip or an extended stay in the king city of Fes, the Hotel Dar Bensouda is a little gem perfect for your Morocco holiday!

Live like an Arabian prince! Housed in a beautifully restored traditional Moorish Palace, the Dar Bensouda Fès Hotel features a range of de luxe facilities to make your stay a memorable one! Gather with your friends or family in one of the many large, welcoming common areas of accommodation to unwind or swap travel experiences. In the winter, spend a romantic evening warming up in front of the open fire-place in the Moorish lounge, or sit back in one of the 2 gorgeous inner courtyards and admire the fountain or sparkling pool. Complete your unique Morocco traveling experience with a dinner at the Dar Ben Souda restaurant serving traditional Maghreb cuisine in the salon, the patio, on the roof-terraces, or in the guest rooms. Guests of the Dar Bensouda can also enjoy a daily continental breakfast. Child care is also available to guests for a fee.

Fez from a bird’s eye perspective! Watch the city come to life at dawn from the rooftop terrace, or come up here to catch a breeze gazing at the sun setting over the roofs of the Fez Medina from the 4 star guest house. The spectacular views over the city by themselves would be worth the journey up the flights of steps, anyway, but the traditional Moroccan tent with its cozy lounge furniture featuring opulent cushions invites you to lie back, too.

Savour Morocco’s bathing ritual! If you need to free your mind of emotional baggage from back home, unwind at the central Fez accommodation’s hammam spa, a lush traditional steam bath decorated with tadellakt. The wellness area of the Fes Hotel Dar Bensouda also pampers its guests with traditional massages and beauty treatments. During the hottest hours of the day, dip into the on site swimming pool for refreshment, or do as the locals do and try a stimulating green mint tea.

Merge with the local culture! If you are looking for a true culture experience, Maghreb travelers staying at the Dar Bensouda Fes can participate in a range of cooking courses and lessons on henna tattoos, Arabic calligraphy and other typical local crafts. The friendly hotel staff will also be happy to help you with wedding services on site and in finding a city tour guide if you prefer an insider perspective or don’t want to go sightseeing on your own.

Please note: upon arrival, the Dar Bensouda staff will be happy to pick you up with an airport shuttle and lead you to the accommodation if you call them in advance, fees apply.
