When we travel to a new country, it is difficult to find options to the tourist hotel, and this is unfortunate for the true traveler. Tourist hotels keep travelers outside the genuine life of the places they visit. This is much more pronounced in Morocco, where tourist hotels are frequently located in the Ville Nouvelle, or “New City,” far from the ambience of the medina, the walled medieval cities that we come to Morocco to visit.

Experience the secret life of the Fez medina by renting a private traditional house in Fez, actually within the sights and sounds of the medieval medina. Traditional Moroccan houses are private enclosed worlds, hidden behind huge unassuming doors, where all windows face inward to a private courtyard which is the heart of the house. The contrast from the bustle of the street to the serene interior of these medina houses is remarkable - and is the essence of living in an Arab city.

“But how could I live in the medina of Fez?” “How will I ever find my house?” “How will I know how to get around?” “What if something happens? I don’t speak Arabic.” Because we’ve lived in the Fez medina ourselves, we know exactly what is needed to make you feel comfortable in your own house in Fez.

Fez Medina is the only organization that offers traditional Moroccan houses for rent with full support services - from a full-time official guide (with fluent English and French) who acts as your full-time escort and interpreter, to pick-up and drop-off at the airport by private car, to two cell phones for guests’ use. It is the closest that you can get to having friends ready to welcome you to your own house in the Fez medina.

How do Traditional Houses Compare to the Once-Legendary Palais Jamai?

The Palais Jamai hotel was once a place with great ambience, perched on a hill above, but not in, the medina of Fez. Unfortunately, the Palais Jamais’ legend has outlived its ambience, and not because it has been neglected. Recent renovations by hotel chain Sofitel have modernized the lobby area and rooms, and given the Palais Jamai the unmistakable aura of a western hotel. There’s a major difference between restoration and renovation, and the fate of the Palais Jamai hotel is a cautionary tale in this regard. It is a major example of the importance of retaining the authenticity of legendary places in Fez.
