Enchanting Moroccan Riad in Fes Awaits on the Other Side of a Dimly-Lit Alley in the Medina
Curator’s statement

The Riad Laaroussa Hotel and Spa is a work of art and as I understand it a labor of love. The couple who own it and live on the premises with their adorable young children are very friendly and interesting to chat with.

The Riad is very large with a huge inner courtyard lit up with lanterns at night and rooms spread out on many levels. We were originally in the Red room but were graciously upgraded to the orange room on the first level.

The stairs did not bother us as we welcomed some exercise and the breakfast was served in the top level with spectacular views over the city. All the rooms really are lovely and each one had its own personality.

The breakfasts were good with omelets to order, breads and jams, yogurt and fruit. The whole staff treated us like royalty and it was easy to feel special in such regal surroundings. As I was leaving, when I mentioned to the owner I did not have a chance to buy Volubilis Olive Oil he ran to his apt and came back with a bottle for me to take home!

We ate at Cafe Clock twice and thought the food delicious and well-priced. This Riad was the most expensive we stayed at in Morocco, but it did have a lot to offer (cooking classes, hammam which we took and enjoyed, and a great location.)

Need to Know

I highly recommend this Riad in the Fez Medina. You will experience a luxury stay in an elegant 17th century palace with a relaxed atmosphere .
