11/20/2019 We loved it

Fantastic location for visiting Fes Medina. We had a vehicle, so parking was a bonus. We had dinner & it was incredible. A really beautiful zen spot outside Medina.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Riad. The locations is great and the management is extremely helpful and friendly. The building itself is gorgeous with a great roof top patio. Taxi can drive here to drop you off but still in the Medina.

11/09/2019 Outstanding Stay

Recently stayed at the Riad Layalina in Fez and it exceeded our expectations. We arrived late in the evening and were immediately greeted by hotel personnel that brought up our luggage to the Riad. Very well appointed, clean, with great views of the city from the 4th floor terrace. Breakfast was outstanding and included delicious fresh baked breads, juices, and coffee. Our only regret is that we only were able to stay one night.

The rooms are lovely and distinctive; the food is marvelous; and the service outstanding. We truly were made to feel like family during our stay. The staff handled our group graciously and with great humor and kindness. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Fes.

The host was very nice. He was delighted to mark all the tourist spots in Fes on a map for us.

We Need More Stars!!!

There are not enough stars to even come close to how wonderful our stay was with Riad Layalina. We booked the entire property for a yoga and cultural retreat and from the moment we walked through the front door, we were at HOME. As a tour leader, I have never witnessed such patience and loving generosity from a staff before. Everything was tended to and all we needed to do was ask, and all other wishes were granted.

The owner Jerome helped us book:
– our own cook staff for the week
– guides for 2 city tours
– a cooking class in the riad with spice market tour
– a driver and transportation for 17 people for airport pick up and drop off
– a driver for 17 for Volubilis & Meknes tour
– guitar players (which were out of this world!)
– a belly dancer and musician

Jerome was beyond helpful. His riad is safe and well cared for. The terrace is perfect for meals. The courtyard is beautiful and serene. The rooftop, one of the highest in the area overlooking the entirety of Fes, was perfect for sunrise yoga and meditation. We only hold love in our hearts for Riad Layalina.

About the staff… We are a group of world travelers and we all agreed that Muhamed, Bilal and the kitchen crew were the BEST we have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. I personally burst into tears as I hugged Muhamed, our new brother, as our group left. They shared life with us that week and we learned from them. Inshallah, we will return to Riad Layalina and to our new home and friends.

Just a word for anyone hesitating….As Americans, some in the group were a little timid due to the climate of our media these days. Fes is safe. The people that work there still live there. They take pride in their city and its history. As a group of mostly women, we had zero worries about fanning out into the markets in small groups. Sure, like any city, be smart, but Fes is a gem on this planet and its people are wonderful. Everywhere you go you here, “Salam”…peace. And they mean it. Salam.

10/31/2019 Excellent stay

We had a very pleasant stay as the Riad Layalina. We were travelling with our own Landrover and the Riad offers a very safe gated private parking. Jèrôme’s service was excellent. On arrival we were welcomed with tea and fruit salad and received a tour of the premise and a map of the town. We had a beautiful room with en-suite bathroom. Very roomy and comfortable. Excellent breakfast served in the impressive courtyard.

We can only recommend this lovely Riad for your next stay in Fes.
I am sorry to say that we did not have dinner at the Riad which in hindsight we should have done, as alternatives in the Medina are not impressive. Next time, for sure.

10/28/2019 Excellent oasis from the hustle and bustle of Fes

Just off the main shopping street in Fes, but very quiet, and oh so relaxing. From the start, treated as long awaited guests. All rooms overlook the central court, which is very lovely, and an excellent place to enjoy an hour of reading, quiet contemplation, and sipping mint tea.

We stayed at this riad in Fes for a couple of nights and were immediately welcomed by very kind staff who made sure our stay was impeccable. We were immediately offered a tasty “snack”, so generous it felt like a full meal, So good! The riad itself is quite beautiful and at walking distance from the Medina, and the rooms are nice and cozy. Private car parking was also useful, as we were driving around Morocco in a rental car. Highly recommended.

10/26/2019 Pleasant stay at Layalina

Our traveling group of four enjoyed our visit to Riad Layalina. We were especially happy with the food. Our welcoming meal was very nice, and the breakfasts were wonderful. The staff was attentive and helpful. The location is perfect for visiting the Medina.
