Lonely Planet review
If you check into Dar Seffarine, ask to see the photo album of its restoration – it’s the only way you’ll believe that such a fabulous building was ever a complete wreck. The central courtyard is positively opulent, with pillars and painted plasterwork reaching skywards, while rooms are more understated with simple plain wood and fabrics to decorate them – only the suite with the painted domed ceiling makes a palatial exception. There’s a pleasant terrace, and a more intimate side courtyard off the kitchen to relax in. The dar is a short walk from Bab R’cif.
Our independent authors have visited Dar Seffarine and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Fez.
