The Dar Bensouda is very well located, with view over the Medina. Service is top class, still very friendly, the restaurant is very good which is a must because there are not many restaurants in the Medina. Comfort is great, especially if you have a room with a view on the patio (even standard is great). This Riad is a peaceful place that you long to find at the end of a busy and noisy day in the Medina

Fantastic stay, wonderful riad, wonderful staff

We had a great time at Dar Bensouda, the rooms were very nicely styled and with lots of space. Good beds, etc. We twice had a luxurious breakfast in the sun on the roof with great views to Fez. The best was the extremely helpful staff. Said, Ibrahim and the rest: thank you for a wonderful stay!
