There’s a clever trick being played here: walk through the 17th-century doors, and you'll think you're in a restored medina townhouse, but this dar (small house) is a recent build. You'll get the best of both worlds – slightly more spacious and modern rooms, but a pleasingly traditional veneer. The Fassi owners have expertly decorated the dar with antiques from their father's shop in Fez.
And its location near Bab Ziat provides another medina rarity: taxis can drop you right outside the front door. Nearby, the brothers who own this place have recently completed a more traditional restoration (Riad Mazar, from Dh770), but given it the same modern spin with orthopedic mattresses and high-tech temperature controls throughout.
Situated a 10-minute walk from the old souks, Dar Fes Medina offers a private courtyard with a fountain, a terrace with seating area and air-conditioned rooms with free Wi-Fi. The Train Station is a 5-minute drive away. All of the rooms have a private bathroom with a shower, a TV and a wardrobe. They feature a traditional décor. A continental breakfast is served every morning at Dar Fes Medina and Moroccan specialties can be requested to the staff. Fes el Bali, the oldest and walled part of the city, is only 350 metres away and you can also visit Madrasa Bou Inania, which is 1.5 km away. Fes-Saïss Airport is a 30-minute drive from Dar Fes Medina.
