04/26/2018 Too short a stay at a fabulous Riad in Fez, staff could not have been more helpful

We stayed at this Riad in Fez on our honeymoon. It was as good,if not better than all the reviews.
The Riad is beautifully restored. The tiles and plaster and wood carving as good as any we saw elsewhere. We were welcomed by tea and cakes on our arrival. The taxi we booked through the Riad was a welcome site when it picked us up at the nice train station in Fez. (Unlike the temporary train station in Tanger.) It took us straight to the Riad and they carried our bags in for us
The trip to Morocco was our honeymoon, and one of my friends had rung them up and asked for a bottle of wine and some fruit to be put in the room. There was a huge bowel of fruit and a huge bowl of dates and a lovely bottle of red wine. And rose petals sprinkled about! And a note from Sarah.
when we stayed it was the unusual cold snap in early April and they has already put the heaters (which are also the air conditioners) on the in bedroom. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. The evening meal we had was excellent, with the staff putting on the patio heaters, as was breakfast. The patio area has a (very high)roof so we were able to sit out and enjoy the courtyard even when it rained. We were given a map of Fez and some guidance on haggling.
We were also given good recommendations for restaurants in the Medina for the night we ate out
The driver they arranged for us for our day out to Voulobilis and Meknes was great.
I try not to stay anywhere twice because there is always somewhere else to try, but if I go back to Fez I will definitely stay here again.

04/11/2018 Beautiful Riad

We were a group of 11 and we booked all the rooms so that we could have the riad for our personal use.

We were given a complimentary welcome meal which was one of the best meals we had in two weeks in Morocco. A tomato and egg dish. We scraped the bowls clean.
This was an impressive touch as usually it is a pot of tea that is brought out when checking into a riad.

There is a beautiful courtyard with a small pool where we could sit and relax and eat meals and a roof terrace with a view over the old medina with deck chairs where you can sit in the sun.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
They even managed to wash and dry 11 loads of laundry in less than 24 hours for us.

We also had a delicious dinner one night and they were happy to cater for 4 vegetarians in our group.

Location is good as it is just across the road from an entrance to the chaos of the medina.

IGNORE the negative comments in some of the reviews about narrow stairs or dark rooms. The building is very old and was built in the practical Moroccan style of that time. It is part of the charm of staying in an authentic Moroccan riad.
If you want light, bright and modern, then a modern hotel in the new part of town is probably better for you.

This was our favorite riad in Morocco. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the riad was beautiful and had a beautiful view of the old Medina. Highly recommended!

03/28/2018 A highlight of Fes!

Staying at Riad Layalina was a highlight of Fes! We’re seasoned AirBnB-ers and this was some of the best hospitality we’ve ever experienced. From the delicious meal at check-in to buying bus tickets and actually walking us to the bus station to ordering a pizza for us on a rainy night, we felt completely taken care of. To top it off, the location is absolutely ideal for exploring the city–it’s really nice to be just outside of the bustle of the medina! We cannot recommend Riad Layalina enough!

03/15/2018 a lovely oasis

This was truly a lovely riad from the first moment we stepped inside the welcoming courtyard. The staff was extremely helpful, kind, accommodating and generous…after a long drive, they treated us to brunch in the courtyard while our room was being prepared. the room was big and comfortable, the view into the courtyard is lovely but the surrounding area isn’t anything special. The bathroom was private but located across from the room. it was great that we could park our car in their private backyard. we highly recommend this place.

03/09/2018 Great Riad

Great Riad on the edge of the medina! A stone throw away from the main market streets and yet incredibly peaceful and quiet once inside. Nice little rooftop view too!

Incredible experience|Rob – Toronto, Canada

Had a wonderful stay at Layalina, the location was great and the Riad is beautiful, the best one we stayed in whilst in Morocco. Layalina is the perfect place to soak up the culture of Fez with amazing views over the city and friendly staff serving great food and very helpful at all times. My only regret is not staying longer!

03/01/2018 Beautiful...

02/13/2018 The Riad is stunning & very traditional

The common areas are very beautiful and well maintained. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. There are lots of steep stairs and not a railing in sight however. Real Riad living. The breakfasts are fabulous. We had dinner in twice and it was also excellent and very nicely served to us. Perfect location for us. Free parking just off the main road.

Thanks for all of your many kindnesses during our stay.
