Dar Roumana, Fez

Framed by lush olive groves and the ancient ruins of the Medina walls, Dar Roumana offers the richness and comfort of a traditional Fassi guesthouse, with authentic style and a flash of boutique luxury. The hotel consists of only 5 rooms, all opulently decorated with gorgeous detail.

Location

The Dar Roumana can be found in the north of Fez’s Medina, a beautiful historic setting recognised as a UNESCO heritage site and spending the day here feels as though you’ve stepped back in time.  The hotel is located 15 km from the Fez international airport and is close to all the city’s great sites, restaurants and souks.

Your room

The five rooms at Dar Raoumana are all stately, spacious, and magnificent in their decorative design. Think high panelled ceilings, ornate stucco window arches, finely carved shutters over stained glass windows and beautifully patterned floor tiling, all oozing Moroccan style and finesse. Much of the furnishings are original dating back around 100 years, complementing the surrounding historic Medina of Fez. All rooms are en suite and come with up to date amenities, including bespoke bath products such as an orange and cardamom-scented gel, so good it’s almost edible. The Pride of place goes to the Yasmina Suite. With huge windows that overlook the courtyard and one set opening onto a small private balcony, spend the afternoon soaking up the sounds of the Medina with a good book and a cup of fragrant mint tea.

Why we like it

Intimate, elegant and with an exotic attention to detail sums up the vibe at the Dar Roumana. The location is the perfect place to explore the fascinatingly beautiful city of Fez with all its art and architecture, around every corner. The highlight of this hotel, however, has to be the food. With an in-house professional French chef, the menu here changes daily depending on what the staff can procure from the local markets, so you know its fresh. Who wouldn’t want a taste of traditional cuisine with a gourmet edge? You simply must give it a try.
