Overview

Beautifully restored turn-of-the-century palace, with a citrus grove courtyard in a quiet corner of Fez’s medina

The Look

Riad-style romance. A meticulous three-and-a-half-year renovation enhanced the century-old palace with calligraphy, copperwork and embroidery stitched by local artisans. Moroccan wooden furniture, handwoven rugs and colorful ceramics are found throughout the communal areas and ornate staircases. In the center of the property is a citrus- and jasmine-scented courtyard garden, where little more than birdsong and the fountain’s gentle tinkling disturb the silence.

Bed and Bath

Several of the 14 spacious rooms and suites are split-level, and all share ornate tilework and lofty, carved-wood beam ceilings. Original artwork and beds with crisp, hand-embroidered linens sit harmoniously alongside such high-tech gadgets as Bose sound systems, flat-screen TVs and preloaded iPods. The state-of-the-art bathrooms have large tubs or tiled rain showers and are stocked with natural aromatic bath products.

Beyond

Enjoy a lavish breakfast of homemade breads, yogurt, fresh juice, fruit salad and pancakes beneath the courtyard’s canopy of orange blossoms. The exquisitely tiled Art Deco restaurant serves Mediterranean-influenced lunch and, for dinner, such three-course dishes as the flavorsome beef, pea and artichoke tagine. For an aperitif, opt for a cocktail while overlooking the medina from the rooftop terrace. Post souk-shopping, head to the spa to be scrubbed, soaped and massaged into a state of total relaxation in the steamy heat of the hammam.

We stayed here for four nights. The Palais is charming and beautiful, and the staff were warm, gracious and very helpful. Loved every minute here. A charming and restful retreat after a busy day in the Médina.

Palais Amani is an authentic Moroccan experience. Friendly and helpful staff and great food. Tucked away from the street through a short winding alley add to the authentic feel of this Riad. A great stay in Fes

Amazing and magical place!

We took 30 friends and family to Morocco and stayed here and it was stunning and the stay was wonderful. The owner was amazing and went out of his to accommodate my guest who had different food restriction. Typical of Moroccan riads, the walk to and the outside may seen scary and ordinary but then the door opens, its mind blowing!!

Beautiful hotel
Reviewed 1 month ago

We brought our 3 year old with us for an 8 night trip to Morocco and spent 3 nights in Fes. The hotel was beautiful and memorable. I would stay again. We got chocolates at night and tea and cookies every time we sat in the common areas. We booked a private 3 hour guide for the Médina and loved it. We also did an excursion to Volubilis, Moulay Idriss and Meknes and had a wonderful time. We always felt safe and loved our visit. I also had a traditional hammam and it was so interesting! An experience I will never forget. Definitely recommend this hotel.
