11/11/2012 Personal service at its best in wonderful surroundings

Layalina is a lovely Riad just outside the hustle and bustle of the Fez medina. The staff were incredibly attentive and helpful, going over-and-above time and again to make sure our stay in Fez was enjoyable. The Riad itself is a little gem with a beautiful small pool and citrus tree in the courtyard and a spectacular common reading room. We arrived just as a some chillier weather hit, and the staff lit up an enormous space heater for us in the reading room each night. Layalina was a fantastic retreat from the craziness of the medina and we really felt like it was our home away from home for the couple of days we stayed there.

11/05/2012 Beautiful riad

The riad is one of the most beautiful residences I have visited on our trip through Morocco and
Europe. It’s courtyard and reception/family room are stunning. The location is ideal–at the edge of the medina, its backdoor accessible from a street. The staff was very thoughtful, we enjoyed this jam of a place very much.

What a lovely place. Don’t be put of when you arrive by taxi and get dropped of in a dusty car park. As with most things in Morocco the inside is a lot nicer. Abdul made us very welcome and organize a tour of the medina. The rooms are all great.

09/16/2012 Sehr netter Service in orientalischer Herberge

Wir haben hier fünf Nächte in einem sehr schönen Zimmer mit sehr schönem Bad verbracht und waren von der herzlichen Atmosphäre und dem orientalischen Flair des Riads von der ersten Sekunde an begeistert. Zwei Minuten Fußweg außerhalb der Medina gelegen bietet es eine Oase, dem Trubel der Altstadt zu entfliehen. Das Frühstück war ausgezeichnet und üppig, das Personal immer sehr zuvorkommend und bemüht, unsere Wünsche zu erfüllen. Wir können dieses schöne Riad guten Gewissens weiter empfehlen.

09/07/2012 Maghredi Paradise

We spent two days exploring the shopping alleys, magnificent mosques and ancient tanneries from this riad. The refreshing plunge pool was wonderful after an afternoon of bargaining for an antique wool Berber rug. Breakfast was a peach smoothie, Moroccan tea, a variety of breads and an egg. The quiet magnificence with ornate tile floors and walls, wooden and stone carving details made this small hotel a very special treat.

06/27/2012 Cozy and Comfortable

Once we found the Riad, we were very happy to stay there. it is actually in a very good location, near the Medina entrance and the parking area where taxis can access. The rooms we stayed in were snug, pleasant and with reliable air conditioning.

Breakfast was bountiful with different kinds of homemade traditional breads, eggs, coffee and of course, mint tea.

We also had a fantastic guide to the Medina named Khadija ( She was so knowledgeable and obviously well-respected that we hired her for two days. Several people on the streets including merchants we were not visiting stopped us to say how lucky we were to be with the nicest guide in Fes. I would heartily recommend her.

06/14/2012 Great place to stay in Fes

An amazing Moroccan style palace beautifully restored. Chill by the pool or sunbathe on the roof terrace this charming Riad is a great place to stay in Fés. Well situated just one minute walk from the Medina, easy to find (the medina is a vertible labyrinth) . Breakfast is included and is fit for a king with a myriad of diferent breads, pancakes eggs etc. juices, teas, coffees. Rooms are comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

05/13/2012 Accoglienza familiare in ottima posizione

Siamo stati 3 notti al Riad Layalina per il ponte del 1° maggio. Siamo stati accolti da Abdul, un ragazzo straordinario, sempre sorridente, accomodante, che si fà in 4 per ogni esigenza. Thè alla menta e tangine come benvenuto.
Le stanze guardano tutte sul piccolo ma splendido cortile interno (il che non garantisce il massimo della privacy), sono pulite (la stanza in tec al primo piano, dove alloggiavamo, aveva il bagno al piano e non in camera, ma comunque esclusivo), anche se un po’ rumorose (la notte si dorme, di giorno se uno vuole rilassarsi mezz’ora è più difficile).
La colazione è ottima e abbondante, le signore che la preparano sono anche loro sorridenti e servizievoli.
La posizione è eccellente, a due passi dalla Porta Blu, ottimo punto di partenza per addentrarsi e perdersi nella medina.
L’autista del Riad, Alì, con cui volendo si possono fare escursioni fuori città, è più un autista che una guida (non è di molte parole), ma è una persona squisita, affidabile, disponibile, mai invadente (non vi proporrà acquisti in negozi dove elargiscono mance all’intermediario) e conosce molti posti interessanti. Consigliamo vivamente la gita a Sefrou con visita alla grotta berbera nelle vicinanze abitata da una vecchietta novantenne che vi accoglierà con thè alla menta, olive e focaccia da intingere nell’olio di oliva.
ASSOLUTAMENTE DA NON PERDERE: la visita del quartiere ebraico accompagnati solo ed esclusivamente da Mustafà. Andate a piedi all’entrata del cimitero ebraico e chiedete di lui (che abita a ridosso, ma dopo le 2 del pomeriggio che prima dorme). Starete in sua compagnia un paio di ore scarse e, per 20 euro mai così ben spesi, vi accompagnerà attraverso il cimitero e i vicoli del ghetto raccontandovi la storia della città (che conosce meglio di un libro) in un ottimo italiano, aneddoti e curiosità, essendo nato e cresciuto nel quartiere. Terminerete la visita chiedendogli di portarvi a bere un thè berbero nel locale immerso sulla via centrale del quartiere. Alla fine della visita, con Mustafà, avrete la sensazione di aver veramente vissuto la città.
Consigliamo vivamente il Riad Layalina a tutti coloro i quali vogliono fare un’esperienza pressochè a livello familiare, sentendosi veramente come ospiti accolti da amici.
Fez è veramente una città da 1000 e una notte.

05/07/2012 A family holiday in Fes

Riad Layalina was the perfect base for our family holiday in Fes this Easter. A stone’s throw from the entrance to the Medina, the location couldn’t have been better. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the bathrooms had plenty of hot water, and the delicious breakfast really set us up for the day’s exploring and adventure. We were looked after impeccably well by the charming team, for whom nothing was too much trouble. We could not recommend the Riad highly enough.

04/17/2012 Lovely riad, great location

We stayed at Riad Layalina for 4 nights in April 2012, 1 night in a suite and 3 nights in a triple room. There are 7 rooms around a beauitiful restored courtyard. There is a small plunge pool but it was a bit too cold when we were there. The location is just a few minutes walk from the a medina through a car park. The staff Abdul, Anise and Fatima were all very attentive and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful, usually with 3 breads, jams, cheese, croissants, fresh juices, mint tea, coffee etc. The first morning we asked for breakfast to be served on the roof terrace, which was willingly provided. Beds were large, very firm and comfortable. There was good WiFi reception in our room and in the courtyard with no problems. We were offered help with our luggage on arrival and departure. Mint tea was provided on arrival. we were given lots of helpful advice about places to go and lent a guidebook and a map. We were even given a few useful phrases in Arabic. English, French and Arabic spoken by staff. We knew in advance that credit cards were not accepted this would have been more convenient for us. We would recommend staying here and would stay here again.
