10/17/2017 Amazing!

One of the best experiences in our 3 weeks travelling in Morroco! It is an authentic palace, very close to the medina. Extra bonus that were important to us: pool (so refreshing) and private parking.
I strongly recommend Riad Layalina Fez! It will not disappoint!

10/17/2017 A Riad to behold and a warm wise host

Well I must start off by saying this was my first time to Fes and my friends second time.i had seen pictures on the website of this beautiful and exquisite Riad. We were not disappointed by this experience.
On our arrival we were warmly welcomed and what we had seen in the pictures on the web could not really describe what we felt about this Riad as although the pictures are stunning the feeling on arriving was one of relaxation and almost instantaneous belonging. The beautiful colours the fountain outside our room and the impressive pool to cool off in after a long walk through the Medina.
We were also served a Tagine of eggs a beautiful sauce and selection of breads which was very welcoming.
The bedroom was again stunning and tranquil and attention to detail was evident. 2 four poster single beds that were draped in a lovely sequinned material leading on to a deep large bath tub made out of stone come shower. Every effort it seemed to put you at ease. It all flowed and married together to enhance the relaxed feeling. Don’t get me wrong it was different to a plush hotel (thankfully) everything flowed and there was a calm feeling about the Riad in general.
We took some steps up to the roof where you had a view of these ancient buildings all irregular and flowing in this hot arid arid climate. A Mosque not very far from us however this was expected once we had found that there were 785 Mosques in Fes and the calling to prayer was moving to say the least.
So the roof top terrace covered in a canopy with stunning ornate railings all around you casting silouhettes on the stone work around us whilst sitting there taking in the mileau the calm feeling this place evoked.
The guests we saw from time to time almost seemed handpicked or maybe they felt this true sense of calm also.
The walls throughout with there burnished finishes were astounding without the straight lines added to the overall finish of this Riad.
The staff here could not do enough for you and it was very clean.
Jeromi the owner was a calm man who you could tell loved his Riad and was passionate about how he fell in love with the place explaining that he had no experience of renovation however found the right people to create this stunning Riad that I will be overwhelmed and excited about going back to.
We also enjoyed a few stories that Jeromi told us about Fes on top of the Riad. A real interesting and warm man.
So in summary I would say that this Riad if anyone stayed here they would certainly not be disappointed.
If I spelt your name wrong Jeromi please accept my apologies.

10/16/2017 Excellent Riad, the place to stay in Fez!

Riad Layalina was a fantastic place to stay in Fes, we stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. The location of the Riad is fantastic, very close to the main streets into the medina and also a close walk to Gare Routiere, the main bus station. We had dinner at the Riad one night which was delicious and also enjoyed the breakfast put on each morning. It was very refreshing to have a swim in the pool after a hot day walking through the medina. This is a beautiful Riad and we highly recommend staying if you are travelling to Fes, the staff are very helpful and created a wonderful stay for us in Fes!

10/04/2017 Best experience

This was by far one of the best experiences I ever had while traveling in terms of customer service. The staff served us with such kindness and generousity that we thought it was too good to be true. Strongly recommend the place.

10/04/2017 Highly recommended

I couldn’t recommend this Riad highly enough! They are SUPER close to the Old Medina but aren’t actually inside of it. The Riad is open and airy. The rooms are beautiful, clean and lovely. We were greeted with warm tea and an open door. They did my laundry immediately and helped me rearrange a few things in the first 10 minutes I was at the Riad. They even got up at 4 am to hand me a “to-go” breakfast for my early morning flight. If you want to stay near the Old Medina (2 minute walk!) and have super fast wifi and great service… this is the Riad for you!

09/21/2017 A gorgeous oasis

Riad Layalina is a gorgeous oasis in Fes. We loved staying there. It is just outside the walls of the medina, in a very convenient location. The rooms are comfortable, with strong air conditioning (which is much needed!) The plunge pool is also a real treat. The roof is perfect for sunsets and the breakfast is tasty.

09/20/2017 An Oasis of relaxation in Fez

Excellent facilities and beautiful interior. My friends and I were treated like kings, the staff were wonderful and a real credit to their business. I would highly recommend staying here to everyone, and I am already planning to return in the near future. 5/5.

09/20/2017 HRG Tour 2017

Beautiful place with a small plunge pool which was wonderful. We were a group of bikers so for us one of the most important thing was that they have their own enclosed area where the bikes were safe. A rare thing for Riads in the area.
Also the staff was excellent meeting our every need. We are arrived well past midnight and were set astray by bogus tourist assistants. We called and Osama came to find us. On arrival we were lavished with fruit cocktail and refreshments. Guides for the tour of the Medina and Hamam was also organised by them.
Highly recommended.

09/09/2017 Great riad in great location

My girlfriend and I stayed at Riad Layalina for two nights in August 2017 and had a great experience. The riad itself is beautiful, with a courtyard, a pool, and fantastic views of the city and hills. Our room was palatial–it had a whole other bedroom we didn’t even use, as well as a living room overlooking the courtyard, a large bathroom, and the main bedroom–and all for only 160 Euros. The staff was a real highlight. Each morning they served us a generous breakfast of pastries, eggs, coffee, and orange juice, and they were happy to help us out with calling cabs and communicating with a driver we had hired for a day trip to another city. Most importantly, when I accidentally left behind a ring and a phone charger, they found them and sent them to me in America free of charge.The location is also great for exploring the old medina, and it’s a quick cab ride to the train station. I highly recommend Riad Layalina and hope to stay there again when I return to Fez.

09/06/2017 Excellent stay. Great location and awesome staff!

I’ll be honest…we had just came from a stay at a riad in a medina in Marrakesh and we were skeptical to stay at another one. Layalina, however, was amazing through and through. On the edge of the medina it was the perfect riad to stay if you have trouble navigating in Morocco and more importantly have a car. They have their own private car park! Those using GPS will have no problem finding the place since the parking lot is a major waypoint on the car’s navigation. The staff was super friendly and attentive…the layout of the whole riad and our rooms was simply charming and the breakfast was plentiful! Highly recommended! (Don’t forget to check out the courtyard at night…some cool lighting effects installed).
