Dar Attajalli: N34°03,948’ W004°58,631’
Parking Ain Azliten: N34°03,936’ W004°58,882’
Dar Attajalli is in great location only 5 minutes away from guarded parking and just around the corner of the main souks and cultural sites. The reception is open 24h/24.
When arriving in Fes by car it is best to drive to lower “Ain Azliten” (it’s a guarded parking and one of the main entrances into the medina). To get there you take the road that circles the medina (having the medina walls on your right hand side) towards the “gare routière” (bus station for overland busses). When you pass the gare routiere on your left, after approximately 200 meters you take the road on your right. Follow the road downhill and you will arrive at the parking. It is a dead-end street. The Medina is car free.
If you arrive by train it is easy to get one of the red “petit taxi” waiting outside the station. It's about a 10 minute drive and the taxis usually put the meter on. Just tell the driver to go to the lower Ain Azliten car park. He should drive you to the end of the street. If you prefer, we are happy to organize a taxi to pick you up at the station (100 Dirham).
A word of warning (extract from an article from the View from Fez: "Usually one or two men get on the train and scour the carriages for tourists. Then they explain that they are official guides (not true) and that the guesthouse you've chosen is a den of iniquity/a brothel/burned down/a bad place to stay (also not true). Much better for the tourists is the place they know (where of course, they'll get a commission). And they usually offer their services as a guide to the city (illegal, as they're not official guides).”
If you arrive by plane we are happy to organize a taxi to pick you up at Fez Saiss airport (150 Dirham). The driver will wait for you with a card with your name at the exit of the airport. Fez airport is convenient and small and there is only one exit. The taxi driver will accompany you to the house and/or we will send you one of our staff to the parking.
How to get to the guesthouse Dar Attajalli
If desired we will send somebody (with a name tag) to pick you up at the above mentioned Ain Azliten car park and to assist you with your luggage. If you have large or heavy luggage we will help to arrange a “caroussa” (little cart) which will cost 20 dirham.
It's a short 5 minute walk to the house. Please let us know your approximate arrival time and – if possible – call us a few minutes prior to your arrival. There might be lots of “false guides” proposing to “help” you. Just say you are waiting for a friend to meet you.
