02/15/2016 Stunning, Beautiful Riad!

Morocco has some beautiful riads and Riad Layalina is certainly one of the top. Beautiful Moroccan architecture and decor, carved stone and tiles – simply stunning! You will be WOW’ed from the moment you walk into the beautiful courtyard. Our room was equally as beautiful with a large king size bed and a very large bathroom. All in all, I have only good things to say. Sayid and Lachen (sorry for misspelling) were amazing hosts.

Because Fez is so overwhelming and confusing, I would definitely recommend that you call ahead for a pickup from the airport or train station or wherever you are coming from. There is no way you will find this place on your own without someone to guide you. (This would be the case with any riad, not just this one, because as I mentioned Fes Medina is a maze of streets that would be impossible to navigate if you were left on your own devices).

The only downside to this (and a few other riads) is when we don’t meet the owners. Granted this is NOT A BIG DEAL, I know this but I do feel that as much as some of these places are beautiful what makes a riad stand out to me is when I meet the hospitable owners. This always makes a difference between good and great. Granted, I acknowledge that the owners sometimes cannot be there, but it would have been nice to meet them.

All in all, would I recommend this riad? Absolutely, without a doubt!

02/11/2016 Stunning Riad

This is one of the nicest Riads we have stayed in. From complimentary cuisine on our arrival to an outstanding breakfast the next morning the manager and crew were just wonderful. Our room was gorgeous and the views of Fes from the rooftop were breath-taking. We would certainly return to stay again. It is a beautiful Riad and staff wonderful

02/09/2016 A lovely place to stay

After traveling from Casablanca it was a wonderful surprise to enter this Riad. While we were admiring the stucco and other design aspects of the Riad we were welcomed with tea, cookies and a tagine. The absolute highlight for us was the terrace with arguably one of the best views on Fes. There’s no better way to wake up seeing the sunrise from there or having a delicious breakfast being served by the very friendly staff before discovering the Medina. Highly recommended.

02/09/2016 Beautiful riad in Fes

We had a wonderful time in this magnificently restored riad in Fes, well located to visit the medina and with Said the kindest host we had while on a 2 weeks tour through central Marocco, Highly recommended.

01/13/2016 Good value on a lovely, comfortable riad

I looked around a decent bit, and this is one of the better deals I found in Fez for a more luxurious riad with modern comforts.

It’s a beautiful old house with original details, great rooms and nice bathrooms. The staff is very attentive, and the breakfast is lavish. One of the best things was the location – while a bit hard to find, it’s a clever compromise between staying inside and outside the pedestrian medina: it’s ~50m to the busiest part of the main ‘street’, but abuts a car cul-de-sac that leads outside, so it’s both quiet and easy to park a rental car and drive out.

It doesn’t have as many amenities as some of the highest-end riads (restaurants, a garden) but is also significantly cheaper, so overall a great place to stay, especially once they finish building the hammam!

01/10/2016 One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in!

We absolutely loved this riad. The staff was so kind and helpful, the breakfast was delicious, and the suite was truly stunning. The riad is right in the medina, and the parking was very convenient. It was perfect for our visit to Fes.

01/08/2016 Superb hotel with friendly staff

The staff at Riad Layalina were polite, helpful, and extremely nice. They welcome you with delicious shakshuka and tea. The interior decoration of the hotel is superb, you really feel like you are staying at an ancient Moroccan palace. Our room had a very comfortable king sized bed, with good heating, plumbing etc. There is a nice terrace for you to enjoy the sun and get a view of the old city. Very convenient location for exploring the old medina as well. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

01/04/2016 Great stay

We stayed here for three nights in the Junior suite located on the upper level of the riad. its a lovely room, very elegantly set up and extremely spacious. The riad is situated very close to the medina area. just a few mins walking and one can enter the medina area. The staff are extremely helpful, accommodating and professional. They go to lengths to please the guests. The breakfast was absolutely amazing as was the coffee. The inside of the riad is so beautifully and artistically done up. We had a extremely comfortable stay there. Definitely recommend it !!!

Our first night in Morocco was spent at Riad Layalina in Fes. We had reserved a pickup at the airport, and our driver was friendly and easy to find. When we arrived at the Riad we were welcomed with mint tea and cookies in the beautiful courtyard. As part of our cooking class, we were guided to the medina to gather the ingredients to make our dinner. We spent the majority of our time with somebody from the Riad, which made it feel like we had a guided tour of the old city. Everyone was very kind and attentive to us. The women in the kitchen were so kind and generous, and made us feel very welcome. We made so much food, we felt bad we couldn’t eat all of it! The rooms were very comfortable, and the bathroom spacious with plenty of hot water. A traditional Moroccan breakfast was also provided, which they also were kind to provide at a time requested by us. The service here made our trip more enjoyable.
