Good location. Great hosts
Very nice staff, comfortable rooms and good breakfast. Location was easy to get to and quiet, if a bit far from the main sites.
Upon checkout the card machine didn't work, and it took a while to resolve the problem. Eventually we figured it out by using Paypal, but it took a while to get to this solution.
The ladies who tended the place were very friendly and helpful. They helped me called taxi and made sure I was comfortable. I dined there several nights and while the price was high (18 euros per meal), the quantity and quality justified it. I ate very well. They offered wine which did not cost extra.
The location, while technically in the Medina, was remote. It is a 20 min walk to the blue gate — if you do not get lost which you probably will. At night I did not feel safe to venture out and had to take taxis. I purchased the day tour at 40 euros and it was downright disappointing. The guide provided minimal (and this is being generous) historical information and the tour basically consisted of going from the shop to shop which offered nice views and the inevitable sales pitch in the end. I can go on, but it’s best to book a western tour in advance. They are no direct fault of the riad, but I do wish they have better contacts for guided tour.
Riad Attarine is very tastefully decorated with a beautiful Moroccan style featuring ornate tiles, a lovely central outdoor courtyard and small swimming pool. The owners and staff are very welcoming providing tea and biscuits on arrival. The breakfast and dinners were also ample and delicious. Our room was large and beautifully decorated in Moroccan style, air conditioned and comfortable. An oasis of tranquillity on the edge of the hustle and bustle of the Fes Medina. A short walk to the centre and the sights of the Medina.
The cook at this Riad was lovely. Polite, welcoming and helpful. I needed to leave very early the next day, so she prepared me a packed breakfast and left it at the reception the night before.
Riad's amplify sound by their construction. I had the Paprika room and needed an early night. However, the Madame and three French ladies were talking and laughing loudly downstairs until the early hours, well past midnight. Eventually I had to come downstairs and ask them to be quiet. I think guests and owners need to be more considerate of others. I am always careful to talk quietly, not slam doors and keep my phone on silent in a riad. Also, the plumbing in the bathroom needs to be updated. The shower tray did not empty and remained full for more than twenty minutes, making noises and smelling of sewage. The light bulbs also need replacing.
