An extraordinary two-story antique royal suite, encrusted with museum-quality carved plaster, original mosaic and decorative painting. Authentic and spectacular.

The space

Lonely Planet ranked it in Top 5 Author’s Picks of best places to stay in Fes; Frances Mayes called the Pasha Baghdadi Massriya “an arranged marriage of art and geometry”; and Conde Nast Traveller magazine says it’s "the Medina apartment to rent."

A remarkable two-story antique royal suite from 1880, the Massriya of the Pasha Baghdadi is the most beautiful Massriya we have found in Fez. Decorated with simple traditional furnishings, the Massriya’s romance comes from its original architectural detail: the suite is encrusted with museum-quality carved plaster, original mosaic, and decorative painting. Authentic, quirky and romantic.

* Two master bedrooms, including rooftop jewelbox "Menzeh" encrusted from mosaic floor to painted ceiling with museum-quality decorative detail, opening onto the terrace and city view from bed. Separate Menzeh is accessed through outside staircase.
* Small Garden Room on main floor contains ornate traditional fountain, small traditional domed Hammam bath designed for 4 people, and a shared bathroom.
* Large Salon with high original painted ceiling and cascading antique carved plaster.
* Rooftop terrace with medina view.
* Excellent accessible location in medina.
* Tiny kitchenette in Garden Room.
* Dramatically lit, with simple traditional furnishings.
* Down comforters, Italian linen and Egyptian cotton sheets and towels.

Other things to note

Due to guest feedback in May 2014, we have added a brand new air conditioner in the upstairs bedroom, and it cools nicely in the hot months now.

We stayed in this apartment over two separate bookings with a break in between. Our last night's stay was just as perfect as the first two! Thank you for everything!

We adored our stay in Fes with large thanks to this beautiful and homey accommodation. It is in a modest residential building, and the apartment itself is stunning and historic. It is right in the medina and a bit hard to find at first (we had to call for assistance and were very grateful to Abdu for finding us and directing us to the right street!), but once you're settled, it's a home away from home. The apartment neighbors are lovely and welcoming, and we found everything easily walkable from the apartment--everything in the bustling medina, including the tanneries and some wonderful restaurants (enjoy every type of street food you can find!), plus the Borj Nord, Marinid Tombs, and Ibn Danan Synagogue. Thank you for such a wonderful visit!

Cozy home with a traditional Moroccan feel at the heart of the medina. The whole apartment is stunning. Especially the bedroom upstairs is amazing, if you can handle a bit of heat! The hosts were of great help, supporting with transportation, guides and trips. Very friendly! Will definitely come back if I'm revisiting Fes.

We had a wonderful stay at Aicha's place. It was convenient location and Our host was super helpful arranging tours, dinner in the apartment and taking us to the store. We definitely would recommend the apartment to anyone wanting to be in the heart of the medina.

Absolutely superb. What a luxury. The interior is so beautiful. The shower is especially very nice- such a good style. The neighbourhood is ideal and the neighbours were very lovely. We asked to borrow some salt and they ended up bringing us some soup and bread as well. Highlight of the trip. Kitchen is a bit awkward to make food in, but otherwise a great stay.

Aicha's place is truly a gem. The ornate features of the apartment make you feel like you've stepped back 600 years, but with all the modern amenities. The view from the terrace is incredibly special and the interior design is gorgeous. We were greeted upon arrival, by Hafid's assistant, Abdou. Abdou was absolutely fantastic. He helped arrange everything we needed in Fes and set us up with special (but very affordable) transportation to our next destination. He was always available and had a Moroccan phone ready for us so that we could contact him any time. We spent the day at the hammam and the souk. Abdou set us up with our guide, Hakim. Hakim was extremely knowledgeable and spoke perfect English (along with several other languages). Hakim took us all over the 9,600 streets of the Medina, stopping in wonderful holy spaces and artisan squares, and worked his magic anytime we wanted to make a purchase. If you are reading this, definitely ask for Hakim! A huge thank you to both Abdou and Hakim who made our experience in the gorgeous Fes apartment so special!
