04/03/2012 An oasis of calm within the hustle and bustle of fes

Riad leylallina was the highlight of our trip and we could not recommend it enough. The staff (two young chaps) at the riad made our stay in fes stress free, with knowledgable guides, taxis and excursions organised on our request.

Breakfast was great and when we mentioned getting a train to Marrakech at 6am, the staff were only too happy to wake up to make sure we had been fed and had food for the train.

The room and the general decor really made us feel like we were experiencing the real morroco albeit the luxurious side.

02/03/2012 Excellent location and a very beautiful Riad

Based on the TripAdvisor reviews I booked three night in this Riad and I was not disappointed.

First, the location is superb. In all the Riads that I have ever visited this was the easiest one to find and least amount of walk to get to. Yet, it was easy to access to the best parts of the Medina and around the Medina.

Second, since I had booked 3 nights, I was served a simple dinner yet finger licking delicious. Then, I was served Mint tea, and mean while I was checked in.

Third, the room was superb. It was one of the roomiest room and bath area I saw in all Riads that I have been. The decor was just amazing (see my pictures). The bed was huge and comfortable. There was a good WiFi reception everywhere, including in my room. Safe, hair drier, satellite TV, Shampoo, Soap, Towel were all included.

Forth, the breakfast was made all fresh while I was at the table (bread, OJ, Pancake, fired bread, etc.) and was very deciduous (Fatima is an excellent cook)

Finally. The check out was painless and fast and the two brothers Abdul and Anis are really nice boys.

On the whole, I was pleased and I would stay in this place again, and I would certainly recommend the place to others.

01/06/2012 Very beatiful, perfect location

The Riad is located just next to an enterance of the Fès medina. It is right next to a parking lot, so if you have rented a car, like we did, it is very easy to access. We were here in the last week of December with a family of 4. 2 kids of 14 and 12. We stayed one night in the suite and one night in the junior suite.

What we liked:
– perfect location
– the atmosphere and entourage was great! Nicely decorated, beautiful ceilings.
– great rooftop terrace
– nice and yummy breakfast!
– junior suite we liked better then the suite. (warmer room)

01/04/2012 A Riad that reflects the true Morocco

We chose this Riad from the positive reviews in Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Close to the Medina (2min walk) and friendly, helpful staff. It has been tastefully restored but you need to be prepared for the hard mattresses. You can grab an excellent take away meal for approx US$3 from the Medina cooked in front of you and eat it back in the Riad courtyard adjacent to the plunge pool. It is worth hiring a guide for your first day to get your bearings around the Medina. Day trips to Volubilis and Meknes are easy and worthwhile – hire a guide through the Medina but make sure the price is agreed by all parties before you set off. Waking up at 4:00am to the roosters crowing is an experience in itself but all part of a great travel adventure. The roof top terrace is amazing and worth having breakfast up there.

Riad Layalina and it’s staff made our trip to Fez one to remember. I cannot even begin to explain all.

11/15/2011 Lovely Riad near the Medina

I really enjoyed staying at Riad Layalina, the location is good and the staff are great. Ali was a great driver for excursions and Jerome was a very kind host. The Riad is in a good location a few minutes’ walk from the main parts of the medina, with lots of shopping and restaurants within 5-10 minutes’ walk. The decor is very beautiful, it is lovingly done up and maintained and the breakfasts are good.

11/14/2011 Huge bathrooms

Rooms very spacious, with a huge bathroom. We were on the bottom floor, handy to the plunge pool. Only the owner was very good with english. He was very good and organised our train tickets from fez to Tangier. We had use of the fridge in the kitchen where we could keep our tonic water and gin and also make ice.The Riad has been magnicantly restored and the tile work is amazing. The owner also let us use their computer to send emails.

10/24/2011 Un'accoglienza da re

L’accoglienza al Riad Layalina è impagabile ed addirittura inaspettata. Si mangia benissimo e ci si sente dei veri re. Il rapporto qualità/prexzzo c’è tutto.
Tutto il personale si farà in quattro per farvi stare al meglio e le camere e l’intero riad sono stati ristrutturati con gran gusto.
Grazie a Jerome ed al suo staff che rifcorderemo volentieri per la loro gentilezza.

10/12/2011 Couldn't have been better

Of the 4 places we stayed whilst in Morocco this was the best. So calm and relaxing; it was a joy to stay there. We ate in the riad one evening and it was lovely. We ordered what we wanted earlier in the day and then ate in the courtyard. The food was of a high standard and plentiful. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. Our room was everyting and more that we had hoped for and it was nice to have the plunge pool there after a long walk through the medina. We used the guide recommended by the riad which worked out really well and we managed to see a lot in our short stay. The only problem we had was finding the riad when we arrived as we had travelled up from Rabat by hire car and the google instructions were useless. We took the risk of taking help from a local boy on a motorbike who led us to the carpark near the riad and then carried our cases to the riad door. We tried to tip him but he did not want our money but for us to ‘help’ his brother, an ‘official’ guide (with a badge and everything!). At this point we felt really pressured and unwillingly agreed to meet with his brother later that evening. However, Radouanne sorted this by getting rid of the brother when he arrived. He may have been genuine (the brother would not take the money we sent for the boy who had taken us there). It is such a shame you have to be so suspicious all the time. The riad is ideally located for easy access to the medina and the views (even from our shower) are wonderful. If we return to Fez we will be returning to Riad Layalina.

09/25/2011 Fantastic!

Beautiful Riad in a fantastic location, quiet but moments away from the Medina. Jerome, Radouanne and all the staff at Layalina made it an unforgettable stay. More like staying with friends than in a hotel. The many recommendations made by Jerome and Radouanne enabled us to experience sights and food we would never otherwise have found. Without doubt the best hotel experience I’ve ever had.
