Fodor's Expert Review Sofitel Palais Jamaï

Bab Guissa, Fez, Fès-Boulemane, 30000, Morocco

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

With an unbeatable location above the medina, plenty of creature comforts, and a gorgeous pool, the family-friendly Palais Jamaï remains a popular choice. Built in the late 19th century, some of the hotel rooms are dated, but this is compensated by tranquil views over the medina or gardens. You can enjoy a well-prepared international meal on the spacious outdoor terrace, lounge with drink in hand in the lobby jazz bar, or treat yourself to a hammam with deep-tissue massage in the full-service spa. The price for all this runs on the high end.

PROS

  • peaceful location
  • historic building
  • outstanding pool
