This is an elegant 18th-century aristocratic house, situated near the monumental Bab Boujloud entrance in Fez’s main Medina. A jewel of Moroccan and Islamic architecture, it conjures up all the romance of North Africa. Almost every surface is covered with decoration of one form or another: geometric tile work, horseshoe arches, mosaics, intricate woodcarvings, rich carpets, and finely sculpted arcades together create a sumptuous, splendid atmosphere. This is
a space to wander through and wonder at, and the perfect base for your exploration of the area. The guestrooms (10) are beautifully decorated, and tease out all the charm of the original building.
Each of the suites feature a beautifully decorated Moroccan lounge with “zelliges” (mosaics), carved plaster and filled with sculpted cedar furniture.
The rooms are similar but do not have a lounge. Also, there are different Moroccan traditional lounges at different levels of the Riad.
On the roof, there is an outstanding terrace where you can have breakfast and other meals while enjoying a panoramic view of the Medina. Riad La Perle de la Medina is located near Batha square and is only 200 metres from Bab Boujloud, the medina’s main point of access.
