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.

09/23/2019 An oasis in the madness of Fes

Just back from a ten day visit to Morocco, three nights of which were spent here at the Riad Layalina. We arrived there after a fairly arduous four day drive and stay in the Sahara, and it was a joy to be greeted with mint tea (or course), fresh fruit, bread and a complimentary, delicious tagine. Our rooms were huge, sparkling clean and very glamourous- a great guide was recommended and it was a bonus that the Riad was only minutes from the Blue Gate which meant we very quickly could find our way around and make the most of our time.

09/23/2019 Beautiful place; good food

We spent three nights at the Riad Layalina Fes and could not have been more pleased. The pictures don’t do justice to the beauty of the place. The location is great — right on the edge of the Medina. The breakfasts were huge and excellent. They even served us an impromptu dinner when we arrived late the first night.

They found us a great guide to Fes, and were hospitable throughout our visit.

09/23/2019 Amazing Riad!

We spent two days in the Riad. The atmosphere is unique, just out of the chaos of the Medina you can find the peace of the beautiful building, and the friendliness of Jerome and the rest of the staff. Rooms are spacious and clean, the food is delicious, and the view from the terrace makes the trip worthwhile. Will definitely come back!

09/21/2019 Welcoming and winning!

Authentic and comfortable Riad in the Médina but easily accessed. Nice views from the rooftop terraces. Delicious breakfast and the dinner is worth ordering. Jerome and his team could not be more helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend!

09/21/2019 Hands down the best Riad we stayed in in Morocco

This place was hands down the best Riad we stayed in in Morocco (out of 4 places). The orientation meal and mint tea when we arrived was delicious and we felt very comfortable with the map, suggestions, and the friendliness of the staff helping us. They were quick to help us with questions, book tours/taxi, bring us daily breakfast or dinner/beverages if we ordered it (which was incredible as well), and always had a smile and asked how we were doing. This small gesture went a long way. The location is perfect and we did not get lost trying to find the Médina or back to our place. The room was cleaned each day, they did laundry at an extra fee, and the place was clean. I can’t recommend this place enough.

09/20/2019 Delightful

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover is the best word of advise I can give. Homes in Fez are not much from the outside but once inside the beauty is delightful. This Riad is very comfortable, includes a sun deck for enjoying the view of the Medina plus a small pool for cooling off after a hot day sightseeing.

The staff is very accommodating and professional and are willing to go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. If you need something such as change or a bus ticket, they will volunteer to go to get it.

Breakfast and a welcome snack are included. Delicious abundance beautifully prepared and served.

No hesitation about recommending this Riad in Fez.

09/19/2019 Fabulous Fes Riad

Riad Layalina is a beautiful place with a very short, easy walk to the medina. It was easy to get to. The rooms are spacious and welcoming. There were steep steps to reach our third floor suite, but they were easy to navigate. Daily breakfast was nice and relaxed, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return here if we are lucky enough to come back to Fes.

Its recomended riad. The perfect riad for our time in Fes. They welcomed us with a beautiful welcome meal and the breakfasts were delicious and very generous. I wish we got to stay another night! Mohammed was so helpful in guiding us with a map to the short walking distance to the places of interest.
