But they don't wear them here, they only make and dye them here. Somehow Drew resisted buying one .... So far. We started the day looking at one of the two military forts around the town. They were built not so much to defend the town but rather to attack it if the population got too unruly. It's one of the few forts seen with the cannons facing …
... they share between Europe and Morocco and our host managed to fit another 5 of us in her Peugeot subcompact with luggage from the train station to her home. After our clown car ride experience we arrived in the center of an amazing African city nestled in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. We had spectacular views all around and as we sat on the terrace listening to the prayer calls echo from the mosques through the city. That was perhaps one of the best ...

... with its maze of narrow unmarked and indistinguishable streets. The air is filled with the smell of donkey **** and sewage on the one hand and fresh strawberries and mint on the other. The walls support piles of broken bicycles, stacks of tires and scattered scooter parts. Men, hands thick with grease, make the necessary repairs. Donkeys and horses with hides covered in filth and open sores wait resolutely for men covered in white dust and sand carrying sacks ...
... in India - all I had to do was to follow the chap with the cart with my stuff. If I was expecting a grand hotel with a big portico with a liveried man wearing a Moroccan cap, I was mistaken. We went through some streets - so narrow that only one cart can go through at a time. Now I know why the cart was required. These streets put the old city of Hyderabad in India in serious competition. But well, they were functional, they were busy, and they were distinctively ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Riad Dar Cordoba Fes
We had a very comfortable stay at Dar Cordoba in Fes, which was the first stop on a 4-destination tour through Morocco. The riad is one big piece of artwork, with intricate tilework and carved plaster and wood everywhere you look. We upgraded from the smallest room to one of the suites after arrival; they are much roomier with very high ceilings and indirect light coming from the central courtyard. Breakfast was abundant and offered a lot of variety.
wow. Juan and his wife are the best hosts ever!!! on arrival we were greeted with mint tea and nibbles. Juan explained a lot about Fes and
Staying at Dar Cordoba, Fez
We had this most exciting experience in the Medina of Fez from May 9 till May 13. Dar Cordoba is a wonderful place to stay, with traditionally furbished well-kep rooms in a quiet environment. Its peace contrasts with the sparkling activity in the Medina and it is always nice to return to the Dar at the end of a long day of exploring, dialoguing, negotiating fair deals, ... Mr Moha Bara is a great host, always available, ready to offer 'welcome home tea', advising on places to visit, services to use, security precautions to be taken,... Breakfast contains lots of fresh fruit, a diversity of breads and cakes, etc. Only the pancakes are a bit less.
Highly recommended and thank you Moha!
Ma femme et moi-même avons séjourné au Dar Cordoba en septembre 2006 et c'était super.
Little Alhambra in Fès
Fès war die erste Station unseres 14tägigen Marrokko-Aufenthaltes. Als wir nach 7stündiger Horror-Bahnfahrt von Casablanca endlich vor der Tür standen, erwartete uns ein kleines Paradies hinter den Mauern. Mit einem so herzlichen und warmen Empfang hatten wir überhaupt nicht gerechnet. Juan und Angeles haben sich dort wahrhaft ein kleines Paradies erschaffen, das von der Architektur beinahe an die Alhambra erinnert. Wir fühlten uns dort bei Freunden und so wohl, dass wir traurig waren, als wir wieder abreisen mussten. Ganz großes Komliment auch an Mohar, die unheimlich sympathische und fleißige 2. Hand von Juan.
Wir würden uns freuen, bald mal wieder zu kommen.

Nous avons choisi le Dar Cordoba en sachant que les propriétaires étaient Espagnols, ce qui faciliterait la communication parce que mon français est limité et que je ne parle pas un mot d'arabe ni de berbère.
Extremely positive experience
We chose Dar Cordoba knowing that the owners were Spanish, which would facilitate communication as my French is limited and I know zero of Arabic & Berber.
It was heaven to arrive at this extremely pleasant guest house. The owners were coming home at the same time after a short break in Spain. Juan and Angela Alamo were excellent hosts. The number two man, Moha, was also very helpful during our two day stay in Fes. He arranged an official guide for half a day of exploring Fes and also helped us line up transport to our next stop, Midlet.
The decoration of the rooms and public area is outstanding. The breakfasts were ample and the atmosphere very cheery. Try Dar Cordoba is you go to Fes and you will enjoy it.
We stayed here in December 2006 and fell in love with the Riad and Fes. Located just off the souk, er convient to everything, walking distance.
My wife and I stayed at Dar Cordoba in September '06.. and it was awsome.
Oasis in fes
It was a relaxing place with armony, comfort and nice people.
The owners are spanish,(from Cordoba) and they love Fes and Marroco, so they will help you in all your needs. Don't lose the retauration of the Riad (it was a palace).
