It’s name is Arabic for House of the Pomegranate: a fruit which, in ancient Morocco, represented wealth, royalty and immortality. Like the name implies, Dar Roumana is an impressive structure, which retains traditional Moroccan character. American owner Jennifer has fashioned each room stylishly and elegantly and communal areas are airy and light. Eye-catching mosaic tiled floors and intricate carved plaster walls adorn this authentic Fassi guesthouse. The ancient ruins of the medina walls and a panoramic view of the Atlas mountains can be admired from the roof terrace.
They serve a breakfast of fresh pastries, preserves, fresh juice and hot food which is highly commended and can be enjoyed in your room, on the roof terrace or in the courtyard. Dinner, made by arrangement, is freshly prepared using local produce and seasonal ingredients.
Rooms are designed with tranquility in mind: there are no televisions in any of the rooms. There is, however, a communal DVD library and books and board games are provided. The location is ideal for exploring the ancient medina of Fes and the hotel is a beautiful example of traditional Moroccan style.
