The riad has a good location in the Medina. The staff is very friendly and they provide a lot of options in the town (tours, dinners, ...). It's very clean but maybe the riad need some remodeling. The breakfast is generous and delicious, it's serve in a beautiful patio.

The manager was manipulative and overbearing. He gave unhelpful information re location of Riad which made it harder to find, insisted on providing a guide when we didn't want one and drove us to an expensive resturant when we had asked for a recommendation of a close by one. I would not recommend this Riad to anyone, although the man on the night shift was kind and helpful.

This was a wonderful place to stay! The hotel is right in the Fes medina, so we could just walk out the door and be near the market and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful and even met us at the train station and drove us/ walked us to the door of the hotel.

We had an excellent experience at Riad Hala. Great location- mostly quiet. Had a large triple room that accommodated us well. The beds were comfortable, and breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The owner could not have been more accommodating. We were skeptical when he said he would arrange a tour around the medina, worrying that we would be taken from one commercial area to another, but he found us an excellent government-registered guide who spent the entire day with us and never pushed us to spend at all. He went above and beyond when my wallet was discovered still in the safe after we had left for the train station- he called the taxi driver to come back and met us at the gate in the pouring rain. Great service, great place!

The Riad has an execellent position, it is located in one of the two central and most important streets of the medina. The reception is polite and the room spacious. The Riad has no restaurant inside, they indicated a restaurant outside,that was good but quite expensive. The staff is insistent with offer of external services. They offered a city tour, they say with official personnel; the price was proper but the tour was short (one day tour reduces to 5 hours tour) and it was mainly a shopping tour.

he ground floor room we had was quaint with historic tile walls and a modern bathroom added on. The finsh workmanship is not first work quality nor is the room boutique chic but afterall the building is several hundred years old. The basic breakfast is served in the historic central courtyard which is to esthetically die for just looking at its charm. I would absolutely stay here again.

Great location in a very confusing city. Staff was helpful, but one person did try to pressure us into going to a fancier, more expensive restaurant than we wanted on our first night. The day tour with Foued was great, but there was some shopping involved. Our day excursion to Meknes, Volubilis, and Moulay Idriss was ok, but the driver did not speak English, and we were not permitted to enter Moulay that day. Overall, however, a very enjoyable stay.

The riad is in an excellent position in the medina, considering the city is a maze in which you get lost at the first turn, the riad is on one of the the main roads, which makes it very easy to find, even at night. The rooms are very generous, very clean and relatively silent(as good as you get in a city centre- we were at first floor by the way, from which you can barely hear the 5 0' clock morning call for prayer). The staff is kind, helpful, but at the same time discreet. The terrace alone is worth the stay, it is quite bare and not furnished but the view is amazing, you can see the entire city and surroundings, breathless view. breakfast... good, quite traditional. The only drawback that I can think of is the bathroom: spacious, working, nice hot water and clean, but a little run down, a tiny maintenance and the place would be spotless.

We loved Hala! And we loved Fez! Great stay. They were so nice to us. I highly recommend. Exceeded my expectation. Bathroom had a funny smell and poor drainage in shower, but all else was A plus. Good breakfast too.

Riad Hala is very beautiful and is ideally situated to discover Fes. We found this the best accomodation we stayed in duringt our trip that went to Fes, casablanca and Marraech. We had a huge room on the 1st floor with a romantic bed, a sitting area and a big bathroom as well. The room as well as the riad itself are very well decorated and are very romantic. The upper terrace gives you a panoramic view over Fes. The breakfast was really excellent (a mix of Moraccan and Western food). Touristic circuit is well organised in Fes. You can easily book a tour of Fes in the streets (the Official guides will come and find you). They have 1 price for the tour which is 150 Dirham for +- 3h. This price is the same for everybody (so no bargaining there) but I really recommend it. You see things you wouldn't have discovered on your own. A full day excursion to Volubilis, Moulay Driss & Meknès costs 800 dirham (also a fixed price operated by official taxi's). This is also an excursion I would recommend. You can book this excursion also in the streets with the official guides.

Very comfortable hotel with beautiful big rooms, decorated and furnished in typical morocco style. The staff is very kind and helpful, they will help you with all you needs. The hotel is in the medina, the old city, near the main entrance door. If it is your first visit in Morocco you should hyre a local guide, you can do it through the city tourist office or through the hotel staff. The hotel will welcome you with typical local mint the. The breakfast is very good, also typical from Morocco. I can assure you wont be so hungry at lunchtime! I would absolutely come back to the samr guest house. You may find cheaper houses around the medina, but they won't have the same standard. I would compare this guest house to a VERY good 4 starts European family hotel. Best choice in Fez!

The terrace is the highest point of the medina and the view is amazing. Do not look the reception:go inside is beautiful. I think is a perfect accomodation for a visit of Fes

We were happy with the riad. We stayed only one night and were pleased. It is necessary to call the hotel when you arrive in Fes, and have them meet you at the entrance to the medina. Otherwise,you would never find it. It is IN the medina. Only negative was that the common area was COLD at night and our room, with a heater,never really got warm. We were there in January.

Good riad - nice rooms, execellent breakfast and really helpful staff. Was a problem with the bathroom drain that could not be fixed that left a bit of an odour in the room. Don´t follow the restaurant recommendations if you´re expecting good value.

Excellent. Friendly people, wonderful historical Riad with one of the most beautiful terraces of Fez. Real moroccan hospitality and not one of the usual run-by-French-or-English-renovated Riads (that are also much more expensive). Also incredibly silent. Excellent price/quality relation: In hotel-terms you can say about this Riad:'Four stars for the price of Two-'. We can recommend a day-trip to the little town Sefrou; one hour from Fez, and with a big taxi 1 (one!) euro a person.
