    Sheherazade scam

    Pretty Riad in the medina. Over all not worth the price. Owner does not seem trust worthy. Offers free guide to take you to his friends shops with over priced merchandise. I booked a suite and they tried to say a regular room was the same as the suite I booked. Classic bait and switch. Left a pair of sun glasses on table and staff said they didn't find them despite there only be about 10 guests staying there. Service extremely slow. Spa ok but very expensive

  • 6.0.Good

    We reserved two junior suites and they were vastly different. One was a very standard room, the other what I’d call a suite. It rained when we were there and there were few common spaces to go to that were warm. The roof deck was less appealing than I’ve seen in most other high end riads. The restaurant seemed set up to host events, not have a lovely local dinner (again, like other riads). There is so much potential in this property.

    50th Birthday Nightmare !

    From the moment we set foot in the hotel we knew we had made a mistake ! We were never checked in properly or welcomed or explained to where anything was . Rooms were not what we had booked . Service appalling. Swimming pools so dirty and cold we could not use . Spa and treatments a total rip off and not proper procedures carried out . Restaurant very expensive and one meal was inedible . Drinks were extortionate and warm . The roof terrace was filthy and not pleasant to use . This is the 6th time I have been to Morrocco and 2nd time in Fes and have never experienced anything like this before . This was also the most expensive hotel I have ever stayed in while in Morrocco. When trying to sort this out with the owner , he was arrogant and down right rude . To totally finish our trip off , two of my friends who were with me had their phone chargers stolen and replaced with old tatty ones . They also did nothing to rectify the situation . We booked for 7 nights to celebrate my 50th Birthday . There were 9 of us in 4 rooms . What a total let down , totally disappointed with the hotel and service . Certainly won’t forget it . But unfortunately it will be memorable for all the wrong reasons . The Manager gave us a 30% discount on our bill , but it was nowhere near the discount that we should have received for our absolutely diabolical experience . Really don’t want anybody else to have to go through what we did at this so called luxury Palace . Avoid as it is disgraceful .

    Oasis of peace

    An oasis of peace, well located, excellent rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Speedy WIFI at the Patio, a little choppy in the rooms. Absolutely recommended.

    Les mille et une nuits existent...

    Si vous cherchez le dépaysement, ici vous le trouverez : un séjour atypique loin des touristes blasés des 5*! Un lieu extraordinaire une gentillesse exemplaire. Un retour vers les 1001 nuits, le décor y est et en plus vous vous trouvez juste à côté de la fameuse Médina. Ne vous attendez pas à un lieu high tech, ni a 300 chaînes de TV ce n‘est pas possible dans cet environnement...

    ここも一点だけですね。朝食の時、10テーブル以上あったので先に来ていた二組(8名と2名)から少し離れたところに座ろうとした。すると2名席は8名の隣りだけだと。寄せた方が作業が楽なので寄せたい気持ちはわかるが、なんでこのだっだっぴろい空間でそこのうるさいところに座らないといけないのか、と強く抗議して、少しだけ離れた席にさせてもらった。 理解に苦しむ。
