Les Mérinides hotel overlooks the old city of Fes (Medina), 2 minutes from the Museum of Weapons and 5mn from Bab Boujloud (the entrance of the Medina).
L'ospitalità è stata ottima. L'albergo non è proprio centrale, ma la Medina è agevolmente raggiungibile a piedi oppure con un taxi.Comment of M. Francesco , Italy the 2015-04-20
"A living legend"
This hotel is more than a jewel, it is a landmark, a witness to decades of Moroccan history. Its staff, headed by Mr. Azizi, is composed of highly conscientious professionals that strive to serve as if welcoming you inside their home, with humility, full dedication, pride in their work, offering foreign and domestic visitors alike, a glimpse of Moroccan culture and thei sense of hospitality. Today's youth rarely produces the caliber of this Hotel's senior staff, a testament to the timeless glamour of the millenary destination that Morocco is. Special thanks to Mr. Abdelghani and Mr. Bouhout and again Mr. Azizi. They have made my stay special and unforgettable.
"Hotel Les Merinides is THE Best Hotel in Fez !"
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights after traveling all over Morocco. We found it to be the BEST hotel during our trip to Morocco. Les Merinides is located on a hilltop overlooking the city of Fez. We loved the room (well worth paying a little bit more for a suite), as our balcony views of Fes below were FANTASTIC, and an excellent photo opportunity. It is quiet, and a welcome respite from the intense noise of the city center, so we got a good night's sleep.The only downside is that one must take a $2 taxi up the hill from the city. The food here is excellent, with a wide array of Moroccan and European dishes, a nice break with variety. Relaxing on the lovely terrace at sunset, the manager, Mr. Omar Azizi, introduces himself, and makes sure guests are happy.
"Great sunset views"
We didn't stay here but instead took a taxi (10dh) up to it on our final night in Fez. We firstly had a look at the nearby Merenid Tombs and then popped in here for a drink. Despite this looking like quite a fancy place the receptionist was extremely welcoming to a couple of scruffy backpackers and we soon found ourselves enjoying the sunset with a couple of beers outside on the extensive terrace area. A beer starts at 40dh and come with complimentary nuts, olives and popcorn. It's definitely worth it for the relaxing atmosphere and the views.
"Holidays in Fes"
We were referred to this hotel highly, only to be disappointed. View of theirs is beautiful, especially at night. Rooms and bathrooms are just about ok. Cracks in the bathtub, an extra bed for our daughter shaky and falling apart. Restaurant is OK. Service and quality if food was good, but sadly not breakfast. I wouldn't come to this hotel again. In my opinion, it shouldn't be a 5 star.
"Only the Views!"
Huh... we decided to visit Les Merinidas for the view.. We thought that the location was awesome and so we sat down for coffee... huh... it took a while for someone to realise that they needed to attend to people visiting for coffee... hahaha... anyhow... we din order nothing there...moved to the restaurant (Imperial) and thankfully saw some staff there ... hehehe Anyhow we ordered al'carte instead of trying the buffet... the head waiter took our orders and brought everything together.... like everything the pizza, the pasta, the hot chocolate as well a the caramel custard....hahaha... as if in a rush to make us leave ... here u go sir... eat it all... n go... thats how we felt about the services... OK so I wouldn't want anyone else to feel the same... so if u wanna go... go only for the view... nothing else... There was so much confusion all around....
