Being a tourist city, there are many quality hotels in Fez. In this post we will cover hotels for all budgets. Not only four or five star luxury hotels, but cheaper hotels and guest houses too.
HOTELS IN FEZ
Hotels in the Medina of Fez
In the medina, the establishments are more typical of Moroccan riads. They have the advantage of avoiding transfers in vehicles or taxis but can be more unsafe at night. In some cases they are located next to the walls so you can get there by car.

What is a riad?
A riad is a traditional Moroccan house with a patio or interior garden. Riads are characterized by a small number of rooms and offer a familiar, hospitable and relaxed treatment. They usually have several floors and a rooftop terrace where you can rest, have dinner or have breakfast.
In almost all the riads the rate includes a complete breakfast consisting of bread of various types, honey, jams, eggs, dates and other Moroccan sweets. Breakfast is always accompanied by natural orange juice, coffee and milk.
If you have never stayed in a riad before, we recommend the experience. Remember that every room in a riad is different and when you start looking, you will want to sleep in all of them.
Most of the riads in Fez are located in Fez el-Bali and Fez el-Jdid, as this is where the oldest and most traditional buildings are located.
