09/30/2015 Beautiful riad, great location

Beautiful riad, just a two minute walk from the medina but very quiet. Really lovely staff–they had helpful tips for where to go, and linked us up with a knowledgable tour guide. Wifi was spotty, but didn’t mind at all. I highly recommend, couldn’t imagine a better place to stay in Fez.

09/30/2015 An extremely memorable stay - the best!

From the beginning, everyone was helpful and friendly. We booked through trip advisor, as the price seemed very reasonable. After arriving at 2.30am from Marrakesh on the train, we organised a driver to take us to the Riad (it cost 10€ and was about 15 minutes – but ok so early in the morning). We couldn’t see much of the Riad in the dark but it was such a pleasure to wake up in a magnificent place! We decided very quickly we wanted to stay another night, and checked on trip advisor, there was an even cheaper twin room available downstairs with en suite – we were so lucky. The room before had a bathroom opposite the bedroom over the landing – but that was very nice too. The two breakfasts we had were full of delicious things – eggs, pancakes, bread, creme caramel, melon, banana, fresh orange juice, tea, the lot.

Rawan spoke good English and was very helpful and friendly. We even managed to catch the owner, Jerome, who had arrived from Paris on our second night, and was extremely welcoming and charming.

The Riad is very central in the old town, it is easy to walk everywhere. We are in Cafe Clock, which wasn’t that cheap, but had a good atmosphere, delicious food, and the water clock (look up) was amazing to see. There is a grand mosque close to Bab Boujeloud which is open to tourists – not as beautiful as the school in Marrakesh. Upstairs isn’t open, but if you ask to see it, they let you up. The smaller tannery (gueliz) is worth seeing, the other one is a bit further away. The gardens, about 10 mins walk from the Riad is also worth visiting, and it’s free.

We organised a taxi to Chefchaouen as none of the buses had space – it was 700 dirham, so around £55 for a 3.5 hour trip. Apparently that was good value. The bus is way cheaper but you have to book a few days before.

This is a must stay! Wish we could go back!

Thank you Riad Layalina

09/22/2015 I will keep coming back. Perfect location. Feels like home

My sister and I were visiting Fez for 5 days. The Riad Layalina became our home. It is a gorgeous and relaxing place to be and it really added to our Moroccan experience. It is only a three minute walk to the entrance of the Medina and only 8 minute walk to the Blue Gate. Great location! The free breakfast is fabulous, complete with fresh squeezed orange juice and yummy crepes and fruit. The rooftop terrace provides a relaxing place to read and offers amazing views of the city! We stayed on the ground floor in a room with our own private bathroom. Rooms are beautifully decorated and air conditioned.

Staff were particularly helpful and very kind. Everyday they made sure we knew exactly what we were doing and how to get there. They truly went above and beyond. After our adventures in the city we would return “home” and there was always someone around to greet us. They showed genuine interest in our experience and wanted us to have the very best stay possible. My sister broke her sunglasses and they even fixed them for her. The very last day both my sister and I were feeling ill and they allowed us to stay in the room until our flight for no extra cost. Mint tea was served to us with cookies, without us even asking. I cannot say enough about this Riad.

When I come back to visit, I will definitely stay with them again!

03/15/2015 Great location for the medina

We were welcomed warmly with mint tea and delicious petit fours. Dinner on the first night was delicious and substantial. Breakfasts were also delicious – fresh orange juice, omelette, breads, and on the last morning avocado lassi. Great location for the medina and merenid tombs. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was comfortable and fellow guests friendly too. Would strongly recommend.

Very easy access to the medina and Merenid tombs.
Helpful and friendly staff.

02/25/2015 Beautiful place, good location!

Loved this place! The riad is simply beau-ti-ful. The mozaiques, the bathrooms, the bedrooms, everything is decorated in fantastic moroccan atmosphere. Just go and find out. The rooms with the glass in led windows were so cosy. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the welcoming food was delicious and free. Breakfast was nice. Beds were okay!

Location is perfect. At the beginning of the medina. Easy to find and free private parking.

Wifi connection was good. Too bad we couldnt stay for more than one night.

02/22/2015 A Beautiful Riad

Layalina was one of the few Riad’s easy to get to. The service was very accommodating, the decoration stunning, the shower hot, and the breakfast quite delicious. There was wifi if you needed it. And really, I can’t say a single bad word about the place.

Top location, beautiful deco, hearty personel, Delicious breakfast, great value for money, can’t ask more………

I read previous review about hard mattress and mad Internet, we didn’t have problems with that at all. The guide the hotel arranged for us was very honest too.
