Review of Dar El Menia Fes, Morocco

Dar el Menia is a charming guesthouse located in Talaa Kbira, the main artery of the walled city, offering easy access to all major sites of interest in Fez. The beautifully restored 18th century Dar features superb plaster work, original marble courtyard floor, mosaics and cedarwood and wonderful views over the ancient city from its roof-top terrace.

The Dar El Menia features three comfortable double bedrooms over three floors. All rooms are tastefully decorated in traditional Moroccan style in a pleasingly understated way which only adds to its charm. The house is well equipped with two bathrooms, extra roof shower and two fully-equipped kitchens.

There is a dinning area adjoining the ground floor kitchen and a Moroccan salon with locally hand crafted cedar banquets and matching tables, where guests can unwind or have a relaxing dinner. The large roof-top terrace has its own kitchen, sitting and dining areas and wonderful panoramic views over the Medina.
