An affordable option for independent travellers


Dar Mystere is a traditional Moroccan courtyard house, or dar, available for up to 6 people to rent exclusively sharing in 3 bedrooms.


From as little as €40 for two sharing per night (plus an additional €20 per extra person), guests have exclusive use of the house.


It is perfectly located for the first time visitor to the ancient medina of the former capital city of Morocco.


Dar Mystere is an affordable option for independent travellers who prefer privacy and value their own space. Single occupants, couples or small parties can experience the harmony, simplicity and beauty of Moroccan life 'behind closed doors' in the mysterious ancient medina of Fez.


We are now accepting booking for the Fez Festival of Sacred Music 2019 which runs from 14 - 22 June this year. There is more information on the festival here.


You can contact us for a personal quote or make a booking through our TripAdvisor page.

At the end of November, there will be a special treat in Morocco: the German pop group Helgen will perform in two of the seven PASCH schools in the country: first on 27/11 at the Lycée Mohamed V in Casablanca, then on 29/11 at Lycée Moulay Idriss of Fez.  Since 2008 the successful program of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs "Schools, Partners of the Future" (PASCH) has been promoting the teaching of the German language worldwide in schools of excellence.  The three young musicians of the Hamburg group will give a concert at these two places. But first they will offer a workshop with about 25 German students in both high schools. During this educational event, the members of the group will repeat their songs in German, but also talk about their daily lives as musicians and pop music in the country of Goethe. Groups of students from other PASCH schools in Morocco (Lalla Aïcha and Descartes in Rabat, Lyautey (Casablanca), Abderrahmane Enacer (Kenitra) and Ibn Abbad (Settat) will also be invited to both concerts, as will other public schools in the cities of Casa and Fez. If you wish to be invited to this event, please contact Frank Kahnert:, +212 (0) 661 871 586 SHARE THIS!

First-class tickets Tangier to Casablanca on the LGV (High Speed Train) will cost 243-364 Moroccan Dirhams, says the ONCF Director General of the ONCF, Mohamed Rabie Khlie, said that ticket prices will vary according to the ticket class, date of purchase, date and time of trips, discount cards and whether the tickets are refundable or flexible. Tickets can be purchased up to 3 months prior to the trip. Depending on three peak periods—low, normal, or high—second-class tickets cost MAD 93-139 for Tangier-Kenitra, MAD 115-172 for Tangier-Rabat, and MAD 149-224 for Tangier-Casablanca. First-class tickets cost MAD 162-244 for Tangier-Kenitra; MAD 187-281 for Tangier-Rabat, Passengers buying tickets on same day of the trip will have to pay 10 percent extra, and 20 percent extra for refundable tickets. Children, young people, students, and the elderly have privileged discounts, with children under 4 travelling for free, but not automatically getting a seat. Children 4-15 years old will have to pay MAD 50 for second-class and MAD 80 for first-class for any distance. Young people aged 16-26 and seniors over 60 get a 15 percent discount. Students under 26 also get a 30 percent discount for second-class tickets. A group of 19 people or more can also get a 15 percent discount. Twenty-six high speed trains are operating on the new line, but it is not clear whether the trains will serve Casablanca yet as the line is still to be finished. The first train from Tangier leaves at 5:55 a.m. and the last train leaves at 8:55 p.m. King Mohammed VI and French President Emmanuel Macron inaugurated Morocco’s first high speed train on Thursday, November 15, in Tangier. The LGV departed from Tangier to Rabat with King Mohammed VI and Macron taking the first ride. The high speed train will link Tangier and Casablanca in two hours and 10 minutes instead of the normal five-hour train ride. The train will also make stops in Kenitra and Rabat. The trip from Tangier to Kenitra will take 47 minutes while the trip from Tangier to Rabat will take 80 minutes. The high speed train will eventually take 1 hour between Tangier and Rabat after work is completed on the rails between the two cities, allowing the train to travel at optimal speeds. Once completed, the trip between Kenitra and Rabat will take only 10 minutes. Currently, the high speed train actually takes about 23 minutes between Kenitra and Rabat. SHARE THIS!

Catholics in Rabat and Casablanca are thrilled by news from the Vatican that the Pope's visit to both cities has been confirmed The Pope will spend two days in Morocco on March 30-31 at the request of King Mohammed VI. “At the request of His Majesty King Mohammed VI and bishops, his holiness Pope Francis will visit Morocco for an Apostolic trip from March 30-31 2019. He will visit Rabat and Casablanca,” says the Vatican’s statement. The visit will be the second of its kind from a pope to Morocco after the visit of John Paul II in 1985. King Hassan II invited Pope John Paul II as an opportunity to build a bridge between Muslims and Christians. In March, King Mohammed VI sent a congratulatory message to Pope Francis, on the fifth anniversary of his papacy. The monarch expressed Morocco’s determination to continue to work with the pope on the consecration of the values of coexistence, communication, and dialogue between different people and civilizations. The King said that their mutual goal is to contribute to the construction of a better future to ensure the principles of harmony, peace, sustainability, and security. SHARE THIS!
