10/20/2019 Riad Layalina Fez was a dream come true

From the moment we stepped through the front door, we knew we had found somewhere incredibly special. Riad Layalina feels like a palace beautiful enough for royalty yet comfortable enough to feel like a home away from home. With the entrance to the Medina right across the street, the sweeping views of the city, the rooftop morning yoga, this trip was a dream come true because of this Riad.
Mohammed, Bilal, Amina and team welcomed us like family and made this experience more magical than I could have imagined.

Thank you for everything my dear sweet extended family!! You mean the world to us and I can’t wait to see you again.

They arranged smooth transportation to and from the airport and train station as well as for side trips. Breakfasts were very nice and we chose to eat on the outside patio which was lovely. One in our group fell ill and the staff was very caring and went to the pharmacy for us. Do be aware there are steep stairs. Would recommend.

10/12/2019 Beautiful riad

The riad is in a great location close to the Blue Gate. It is a lovely example of the traditional architecture, with a pool (although the pool wasn’t full when we visited). The staff are exemplary and the breakfast was overwhelmingly generous. On a day trip to Chefchaouen (highly recommended) a small takeaway breakfast is provided. Jerome was very helpful. We always felt safe walking to and from the riad, even at night.

10/10/2019 Great location

Great location close to Médina and other points of interest. Jerome and his team handle all the details from booking tours, airport transfer, and the food is authentic and delicious.

10/09/2019 Stunning, authentic Riad with exquisite hospitality

What a beautiful and hospitable welcome to Fes! Though we only got one night at Riad Layalina, walking through the door, to the beautiful old house, with its quiet, comfortable garden was great. Jerome and his team were fantastic, and the breakfast in the morning, before or trip to the Sahara was a tasty treat, the best we had, exemplary of the hospitality we’d find throughout the country.

10/06/2019 Best stay in Morocco!!

Was a great time spent at Riad Layalina. The staff was excellent, thanks again for everything Mohammad and Bilal! Room was very clean and bed super comfortable. I almost forgot the food they served was excellent, definitely the best I had at any Riad. Top recommendation, would stay here again!!!

10/06/2019 Delicious food and a great value!

We only spent one night in Fes at Riad Layalina before catching our flight back to Spain, but it was the perfect place to end our time in Morocco! The staff at the Riad were so welcoming, preparing us a lovely dinner and fresh mint tea for free upon our arrival (which saved us so much time searching for a restaurant in the area). The breakfast the following morning was delicious as well. The staff also helped arrange our transportation to the airport which was very helpful.

The Riad is gorgeous and although we didn’t have a chance to do much sightseeing, it appeared to be very centrally located to the main attractions and old city/medina in Fes. We would definitely recommend Riad Layalina and would happily stay there again – hopefully for longer – on our next trip to Fes.

10/03/2019 Beautiful garden and clean room

Location is great, it was inside the medina but very close to the north gate, and has its own parking lot, convenient for self-driving travelers.
The front door facing alley to medina is a little hard to find, but we gets used to it after the first time. the room has great view, breakfast is great too.

Great view from the riad, authentic place. Close to the medina but quiet.

09/27/2019 Excellent value riad in a great location

The riad is located on the edge of the medina. Initially I was disappointed that a short walk through the car park was necessary to reach one of the main streets in the medina, but realised this was a small price to pay for very easy access via the riad’s rear door to load and unload bags (walking these down narrow medina streets is no fun). And the location around a third of the way down from the Blue Gate is perfect.
We took the smallest room with two separate beds. It was, however, extremely comfortable with separate single four-posters on separate sides of the room. In contrast, the bathroom was huge with constant hot water and lots of space.
The French owner is in residence one week in five and was charming and very informative. His staff can clearly manage things in hist absence and were totally professional and friendly.
The layout is unusual in that the courtyard is open to one side which makes the atmosphere much airier and allows for a small swimming pool not set dead centre as most are. So it’s usable without feeling a little public.
The include breakfast is massive (pancakes, croissants, bread, omelette, with fruit or yoghurt or olives & tomatoes. Accompanied by thermos flasks of coffee and milk plus jams and honey, it’s everything you would want.
In closing, the riad has fibre internet access which is fast and reliable.
I thoroughly recommend staying here.
