Beautiful Riad but poor management
"I have just returned from a four-night stay at Riad Sheherazade and while I had a very enjoyable stay in Fes I have to say that overall the hotel was disappointing. The Riad is a beautiful building with a lovely courtyard and small swimming pool but the furniture and some of the workmanship on the fittings and fixtures in the room left a lot to be desired. There are a lot of steep steps to get to the rooms and no warning is given, fine for me but not the very young, old or infirm. But the main problem was the ownerâs poor management and over-riding desire to make as much money as possible rather than focus on ensuring guests enjoyed their stay. For example: âhe booked a guide to show us the medina the night we arrived without proper consultation. The guide just took us from one exorbitantly priced shop to another, got annoyed when we refused to buy anything and over charged us for wasting our morning. When we complained to the owner he said, âthat is what happens in Moroccoâ and didnât speak to us again during our stay. We returned to the medina on our own and had a great time and I would recommend that others take the plunge and explore it on their own too âthere was constant pressure to eat all your meals at the Riad and while the food was excellent there was not much variety, we were given the same dessert four nights running! âThe staff were charming but poorly trained and driven to distraction by the owner. They failed to provide the telephone number for BA so that we could check on our return flight despite repeated assurances that they would or âhadâ done it, one evening it took over an hour to be served our first course at dinner (although there was only a dozen of us in the restaurant) and they âforgotâ a pre-booked picnic. Until the Riad Sheherazade getâs its act together I would not recommend staying there."

An Oasis in the Medina
"Lovely, charming riad. The service was fantastic (we had to come and go very early/very late because of bad plane times) and they were extremely accommodating. We had the most basic room in the entire riad, but it was a terrific and spacious two-room suite overlooking the courtyard from the top floor. Importantly, this riad has air conditioning, which is good because it does not necessarily cool down that much at night and we learned that many riads don't have A/C. The staff were very helpful on where to go and what to see, and spoke at least five languages that we could tell. The riad is a bit off the main square, but an easy walk into the medina. You can stay at a western-style hotel anywhere. If in Morocco, I'd wholeheartedly suggest staying at a Riad, and this one is a great place to try."
