Wondering where to stay in Fes, Morocco? From luxury to a more budget friendly option, we’re here to tell you the best riads in Fes to call home while you visit Morocco. 

Where to Stay in Fes, Morocco

Dar Borj

Starting with the more budget friendly option, we have Dar Borj.

Dar Borj is located in the Fes medina, close to Bab Bou Jeloud (The Blue Gate). In addition being close to one of the biggest attractions in Fes, Dar Borj is situated a few steps away from one of the many local markets and eateries in the medina.

As soon as you enter Dar Borj, you are welcomed with mint tea and a smile – the only way to be greeted in Morocco in our opinion.

The Moroccan family that runs the Dar is kind, helpful and more than willing to accomodate any need such as booking you a tour or helping you coordinate your transportation onto your next Moroccan destination.

Dar Borj is several stories high and boasts amazing views of the medina from the rooftop terrace. The terrace is also where your breakfast is served (breakfast is included by the way).

The room your breakfast is served in is a small, quaint room full of plush pillows and Moroccan prints. And the breakfast, woah the breakfast! It’s delicious.

All around, we can’t recommend Dar Barj enough. Its location is great, the staff is friendly, and the décor and vibe are exactly what you need to make you feel like “you’re in Morocco.”
