12/12/2016 Beautiful and Excelent Riad - Excelent value for money

Excelent Riad in Fez. We really recommend it. Excelent value for money. Very close to the Souk. We were very well received. The staff offered an excelent welcoming meal of Tagine of Tomato and Eggs and fresh fruit. The staff was very nice and helped us with everything. The rooms were very nicely decorated (palacian marrocan style) and cosy. Nice bathroom. The Riad is a Palace with a lux decoration. We truly recommend it. Only negative point is that it is not very well marked in the surroundings meaning that we had to ask for its exact location. The Riad has a private parking space so please do not park your vehicle in the parking space near by even if the “valet parking” says you to do so. We met the owner and very nice French Gentleman. You should absolutely choose this Raid when staying in Fez.

12/07/2016 Terrific place and service

Beautiful Riad in a perfect location.
Riad Layalina is located inside the medina in Fes, but it us very easily accesible which gives you the opportunity to wander through Fes’s wild maze of alleys and shops.
The riad is a beautiful old moroccan home and the people who work there go beyond their obligation to make you feel comfortable and solve any doubt or difficulties that may arise.
Besides all that Layalina has its own parking so if one travels by car it is most convenient and safe.
This was our second trip to Fes, amd if there is a third, we certainly will stay at Riad Layalina again.

12/03/2016 Prime location, excellent service and beautiful artistry

The location is fantastic as it’s literally across the parking lot from the entrance to Rue Talaa Kebira which traverses the Fes Bali Medina. If your are driving, the parking is a bit nondescript and you will likely pass it as I did when making the right turn on Rue Ain Zleten. Just passed, you will see a big parking lot at which they will try to charge you 20 dirhams per night, just tell them that’s it’s included in the hotel parking and ask then ask hotel employee come with you to get the car and put it in the Riad Parking lot. Location gets a A+.

The service from the staff was excellent. They were attentive, present and quick to assist. The owner, Jérôme, was present while I was there and he was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable of the area.

Lastly, what impressed me the most was the level of detail and depth and breath of the handcrafted artistry and colors in the interior design.Everything from the window frames, to the doorknob had a form of beautiful and unique design. I was awestruck by the level of detail; felt like I was in a palace. Great for couples given the comfort and single travellers whom appreciate Arabic artistry and design.

If I could say one thing is that the bed could’ve been a bit softer but, minor detail.

Overall, excellent place and definitely recommend a stay.

11/30/2016 Best Riad in Morocco with free private parking

As soon as we arrived we felt like we were in a royal palace and were treated like kings and queens.
The hospitality was incredible from arrival to departure.
As soon as we arrived we were welcome with a drink and something to eat. Then we got an introduction to the area of Fes from the roof top terrace. Our breakfast was delicious with juice, eggs, pastries, fruit, tea and coffee.
The private parking (fenced) at the back of the Riad is a huge plus as we had a small camper van. It was easily to pop down to the car and get something we needed. We called the Riad just before we arrived and they meet us with our van.
We loved the Riad the so much that we spent a couple of days just reading a book the terrace and by the pool.
You won’t find a better value Riad in all of Morocco! Yes there are nice Riads in Marrakech but this one is the one you will remember.
Thanks Jaffa and Said you made our stay in Fes, and we will be sure to see you again.

11/28/2016 Great

We loved our stay at Riad Layalina. Our room on the ground floor was surprisingly quiet and comfortable. Nicely decorated with a safe and a huge bathtub. Jaffar and Said went out if their way to accomodate our needs. We really felt welcome and at home. We had in house dinner (vegan as per our request) and it was very good but we couldn’t finish it as the portions are huge. Location is perfect with a very accessible private parking lot inside the riad. The view from the terrace is beautiful. You can have breakfast served at the time you want but i advise that you warn them if you need to leave early. Overall great experience.

11/20/2016 Amazing hospitality; stunning decor

A few examples of how great the service was at Layalina:
– my wife had a tooth ache and they traveled to the store to buy her aspirin and wouldn’t accept our offer to pay for it
– they let us borrow their phone charger when ours broke and asked if we would like to take theirs for the rest of our trip
– took time to show us a map of the city, and advised us which things to see and which routes to take
– upon arrival they gave us a cheese tajine with bread that may have been the favorite thing we ate on our 2 week trip to Morocco

The hotel itself is beautiful. The main square is decorated with mosaic tiles and has a garden-feel. The rooms are elegantly decorated with an authentic feel. Could not be more pleased with our stay!

11/18/2016 Best place to stay in Fes!

Beautiful Riad with an amazing view of Fez. Very central, just a short walk into the medina. Very helpful staff, who dropped everything to assist us in organising our travel. Parking was nice, secure and off the main road. Overall it was the perfect place to stay in Fez, we’ll definitely be coming back!

10/30/2016 Amazing Oasis for Fez Medina

Jerome and his staff did an amazing job at making us feel at home during our stay in Fez. The Riad is beautiful and very comforting. Breakfast and Parking options were a plus.

We got stuck with a prior reservation not working out and we took a chance by knocking at the door of Riad Layalina as a last minute replacement. I’m glad we did, we had a room and a welcoming tea within minutes and this location made our trip the best it could have been while in Fez.

10/19/2016 Magical oasis in the heart of Fes Medina - you will not wish to leave....ever!!!

What was meant to be a one-night-stop-over in Fes turned into two nights as this place is truly enchanting and very hard to leave! Beautifully restored riad that takes your breath away, ever-helpful, charming and kind staff, chilled out atmosphere that makes you feel you are in your heavenly home. This is the work and creation of the lovely owner Jerome whose attention to detail and friendly inclusion towards his guests truly makes this a different experience! It’s a stark contrast to the bustling and busy medina and staying here compliments the experience by giving you some relaxation after shopping and exploring sprees of Fes – which is wonderful, but much helped with such an oasis of calm, tranquillity and beauty to return to. I will be back soon inshallah, shukran giddan, merci beaucoup, thank you again for making our visit so lovely & memorable!!

10/10/2016 Beautiful Riad right by the Medina with a courtyard pool and parking

This is the most beautiful Riad we stayed in during our visit to Morocco – the communal areas makes you feel like you are staying in a palace! We also had dinner on our first night and the food was delicious, as was our breakfast next to the pool in the morning. Our host was also very professional, helpful and friendly.
