Our stay was terrific. The riad was traditional Moroccan style and very beautiful. The staff and owner were very hospitable.
The meals were excellent! No need to go out to eat when you could get the best meals in Fez right at the riad. It was a true
dining experience. If we return to Fez we will certainly book at the Al Andalous.
I booked this ryad because of its central location in Fes and because of the very positive reviews on Expedia given by former visitors. I was not disappointed. This place is fabulous. The location is perfect for seeing the sights of the old city of Fes. e ryad itself has been superbly restored with great taste, the staff are friendly attentive and efficient, without being intrusive. The breakfasts were an event in themselves, evening meals (we ate in on 2 nights) were terrific (with wine). I could even have my preferred Gin + Tonic served to me in my room before dinner. We also availed of the massage and the hammam services provided.
I cannot speak too highly of Ryad Salama.
Situated on the edge of the markets with close access for cars and luggage. The plunge pool was welcome after a hot day in the markets. Peaceful rooftop lounging area and friendly helpfulness staff. I would be confident to recommend this riad to the most discerning traveller.
We did really well with this booking. Beautiful, clean and great location. One of the main requirements was for a swimming pool and although when we arrived it looked a lot smaller than the photos it served its purpose. The Riad is about a 5 min walk from the souk and place r'cif and just 10-15 dirhams for a taxi to the 'new city'. Some of the staff were excellent but could have been more helpful with suggesting on places to see and recommending tours. Generally booking through the hotel is more expensive but we didn't find the usual tour touts so we had to go through the hotel.
We also got told at check-out that we needed to pay a city tax that was not mentioned on the booking nor when we arrived so add around 3 euros per person per night to your budget.

As seems to be the case with riads, we had a nice chat with the owner Rashid over tea upon our arrival. We had ordered a regular room and he upgraded us to a small suite with a window overlooking the central courtyard. The riad seemed to be relatively empty in April. It has a great location near the blue gate. We were able to park our car in a nearby garage for a few tens of dirhams. The hotel advertises free parking, but we got so lost driving into Fes at night that we had to be guided by a fellow on a motorycle, who handed us off to a tour guide, also named Rashid, who took us into the underground lot. Rashid the guide turned out to be very good, although we ended up going to a lot of shops, especially a carpet store and a leather store associated with the tannery. To be fair though, the carpet store and the tannery started with a tour, and the stuff on offer was very high quality, the tour was good and the people were fun and nice. Of course the asking price is always really high, and you have to negotiate. We always left with the feeling that we got a decent value, but that if we had bargained harder we could have gotten an even better deal. We spent a lot more money than we had planned. The reason I mention all this is that Rashid the riad owner may offer to get you a guide, etc. He also owns a tannery. You may be happy with his choice or not. We don't know, since we had contracted a guide before arriving at the riad.

First off I researched a lot before picking a riad for our Morocco adventure and Algila' stood out to me. We wanted an authentic looking hotel vibe and this riad really was beautiful. The staff Soukaina, Alfie and Mohammed made our trip very comfortable and their service went beyond imagination. From walking all the way to the square to get us taxi services, to a 5am packed breakfast and an amazing comped dinner for four. I would recommend Algila' Fes to anyone who wants to travel to Fes.
