06/08/2014 Best staff ever

Loved this place: beautiful interior, relaxing entry rooms/foyer, great staff (Sayeed, Simo and Osama), decent breakfast (included), great location (by the Medina & parking lot, hence a bit noisy as well). The Riad welcomes you with a tagine, mint tea and cookies. Sayeed makes excellent egg tagine.

Will definitely go back to this place every time I visit Fes and to feed the neighborhood kittens.
When in Morocco, please take doggy bags (mention cats to the waiter and they pack an easy to open foil pack) of your left over meals for the cats and kittens…..they even eat couscous. Insha’Allah!

05/09/2014 Wonderful experience in Morocco

Me and my girlfriend spent a night in this fascinating riad, in the medina of Fes.

Everything was great: accommodation, position of the riad, architecture of the building, facilities (there’s a private parking).
Jerome and the 2 guys of staff were Incredibly friendly (they welcomed us with a rich Moroccan lunch, when we arrived in the middle of the afternoon).
Definitely a great experience: suggested!!

04/25/2014 Lovely riad in the heart of Fez

Great place to stay inside the medina, beautifully decorated and run by the the wonderful Jerome and his staff Said and Redwan. 2 minutes from the main streets of the medina yet very quiet and peaceful. Would recommend to anybody. Thanks for a great stay.

04/23/2014 Beautiful riad in Fes

Everything about our stay in the Riad Layalina was wondeful. It’s like a little oasis when you walk in: gorgeous courtyard with a little pool. We were welcomed with sweet tea, Moroccan sweets, and a small kefta tagine! Really above and beyond. The guy in charge was great, really helpful, and he even walked us to a place he recommended for lunch when we asked for help. The room we stayed in was amazing, and as usual in Morocco, it came with a stunning bathroom. You can imagine when the aristocrats would bathe here! And the breakfast was superb – with a little change to it every day. I would definitely recommend this riad – and Fes in general!

04/19/2014 A Lovely Riad Tucked Away From The Hustle And Bustle of The Medina in Fes

A Lovely Riad Tucked Away From The Hustle And Bustle of The Medina in Fes

My friends and I booked Riad Layalina because it has a suite that can accommodate 4 people (two bedrooms, one living room and one bathroom). We wanted to have a living room as a common area for hanging out when we need some privacy.
The riad arranged for a Grand Taxi to pick us up at a reasonable 70 Dirham rate, which saved us from being scammed by taxi drivers at Gare ONCF de Fes.
Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the staff and Jerome, the owner. Of course, mint tea and Moroccan cookies were served as a welcome gesture, but we were delighted to be offered a small meal: each of us got a delicious tajine with tomato and egg. It was a nice treat especially when our arrival time was past 1 PM.
The riad has a lovely courtyard and living room on the ground floor, but what I loved the most is that our suite was on the top floor and had ample ventilation and natural lighting. Windows could be opened to allow for sunlight and airflow, even in the bathroom.
Jerome was there to give us recommendations on where to eat and what to see. In order to give us the initial orientation, one of the staff walked us to the medina, which is less than 5 minutes away. Rue Talaa Kebira (one of the main roads in the medina) can easily be reached just by walking from the riad.
We loved the location of the riad in particular because it is accessible by taxi/car, whereas other riads right in the medina will require you to get off the taxi/car; then, haul your luggage throw the narrow alleys.
Riad Layalina was definitely a nice introduction to Morocco!

Nice little Riad with perfect location to access the center of Fez. The staff was more than welcoming and made great effort to make sure our stay was enjoyable. It is easy to recommend when treatment is this good.

04/15/2014 Beautiful Riad, great access to old medina

My colleague and I both greatly enjoyed our stay at the Riad Layalina. Though we had a hectic journey to Fez, the staff greeted us very warmly and provided a warm meal/snack upon arrival, which was delicious and very much unexpected. (I loved the tomato/egg tajine – that was a treat!) Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were also very nicely furnished and were beautiful, and the breakfast was great, too. The staff also helped to set us up with a tour guide, which was nice, since we had afternoon meetings in Ifrane and had only 2 hours to explore Fez.The Riad itself was beautiful, conveniently located, and had a great view from the terrace! If only we could have stayed longer.

Thank you, Jerome and staff, for your hospitality. I would highly recommend the Riad Layalina to friends in the future.

04/14/2014 A little treat in Fes!

Great choice whether you are just stopping by for one night or thinking about staying few days in Fes.

Jérôme, the owner, is a great host and surrounded by a great team. He divides his life between is actual job in France and the passionate management of his riad in Fes. We’ve been lucky to meet him and share some good talks about Morocco in front of a fresh orange juice. He also suggested us where to go eating and drinking in Fes.
The cook at the riad is Moroccan and will prepare you great and abundant breakfast with crepes, jam, bread, cakes, orange juice, coffee, tea etc. And also fabulous dinner freshly cooked everyday.
We stayed in the twin room at the ground floor. Very clean and nice decorated. The bathroom also very clean and the shower a dream..huge and hot water 24 hours.

To point out that we arrived from Merzouga with the night bus which was supposed to get to Fes at 6am. We initially booked for one night and the plan was to go for a breakfast in the Medina and drop our backpacks at the riad afterwards. For some reasons we arrived at Fes at 3am and the only place we knew at that time was the riad. We werent expecting them to host us without notice but when we called at 3.30am they happily provided us with a room for the night and a nice breakfast in the morning..this is what I call a good service!

Last thing..the riad is located in a perfect position just few meters from the Medina and a bunch of mins from the gate Boujloud!!

03/26/2014 Beautiful!

Walking into the riad was breathtaking. I arrived early and was promptly greeted with mint tea and pastries. The rooms are more than comfortable, the food was delicious and the location was perfect because it’s on the edge of the medina. Jerome and his staff took care of all of our needs and recommended a guide who met our needs perfectly. I highly recommend this experience.
