The riad Ahlam is very well situated in the old medina at Fes. The staff (manager Kacem, chef and waitress Fatea and waiter Omar) really care about your happiness and enjoyment. If there is anything you need just ask Kacem - if it is possible he will arrange it, e.g. guided tours. Breakfasts are great and the evening meals were the best we had in Morocco.
Riad Ahlam lived up to its name as the Garden of Dreams. The building
which appeared as bare walls from the outside, opened up into an
enchanting courtyard with trees, columns and a fountain on the inside.
Our room was likewise like a set from Arabian Nights with furniture,
doors and tiles made by traditional craftsmen. The staff were warm and
friendly and their motto was clearly 'Your wish is my command'.
Breakfast in the courtyard was heavenly (and all inclusive!); fresh
fruit salad, melon and a choice of fresh pancakes, doughnuts and bread
with omelette, jam and honey etc. I would definitely like to stay in
this Riad again.
Excellent service, excellent location. Makes you feel at home in Fes. Good food and particularly nice breakfast. A beautiful building, very atmospheric.
I had a problem with my credit card not being accepted but this really was the fault of the bank group with whom the Riad links as the card has otherwise caused me no problems.
Riad Ahlam was wonderful, we truly enjoyed our stay. The staff, especially Kecem (the manager) and the lovely lady who prepared dinner, were so nice, helpful and hard working. The place is beautiful, and we had a fantastic meal our first night at the Riad. It is not too hard to find, with convenient parking, and the location is perfect as it is in the heart of the old city. I would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it!
