12/28/2015 Attentive and Accommodating Staff

Our first night in Morocco was spent at Riad Layalina in Fes. We had reserved a pickup at the airport, and our driver was friendly and easy to find. When we arrived at the Riad we were welcomed with mint tea and cookies in the beautiful courtyard. As part of our cooking class, we were guided to the medina to gather the ingredients to make our dinner. We spent the majority of our time with somebody from the Riad, which made it feel like we had a guided tour of the old city. Everyone was very kind and attentive to us. The women in the kitchen were so kind and generous, and made us feel very welcome. We made so much food, we felt bad we couldn’t eat all of it! The rooms were very comfortable, and the bathroom spacious with plenty of hot water. A traditional Moroccan breakfast was also provided, which they also were kind to provide at a time requested by us. The service here made our trip more enjoyable.

12/15/2015 Great Riad in Fez

The best Riad we stayed out during a weeklong trip to Morocco!

The location was good for exploring Fez. It was close enough to be on a main Medina street in less than 5 mins, but was far enough away from the hustle of the town to be able to relax as well. We had three rooms in the riad, and each room was clean and without any issues. Plenty of hot water in the showers as well! The rooftop patio has nice views of the Medina and the hills behind the town. The wifi was free and fast!

The rooms and property were nice and clean. The staff was extremely accommodating and were great hosts! They definitely went above and beyond our expectations!
We arrived in the evening after a long train ride and were quickly greeted with mint tea and chocolates.

They typically request that dinner orders be in before mid-day (which is understandable). However, they were gracious enough to make us a small meatball dish on short notice. We were not expecting this after they told us about the advanced
We ordered ahead for dinner on our second night and had a tasty beef and prune tagine. The breakfast spread was very good as well.

Would definitely recommend for a great stay in Fez. If arriving by taxi – have them take you to Ain Azliten parking lot. It is much simpler to get to the riad from here than from the Blue Gate.

10/09/2015 Very nice & clean Riad

Very nice & clean Riad, in a ‘quiet’ area 2 minutes away of the ‘busy’ main street of the old medina. The hosts were always very friendly & helpful. There’s wifi and small pool and every morning a good (and enough!) breakfast with fresh fruit, orange juice, bread, eggs, … but the biggest advantage is the big roof terrace. Wow, what a view over the city.

10/04/2015 Stunning Riad with Incredible Views

Stunning Riad with Incredible Views

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautiful Riad Layalina. The location is brilliant as it is just on the outskirts of the medina so it is easy to get to and easy to access the centre of Fes.

The riad is just stunning with a beautiful pool and the views from the roof terrace are unbeatable. Service was great and the breakfasts were delicious and filling, setting us up for a day poking around Fes.

A real beauty of a riad!

09/30/2015 Beautiful riad, great location

Beautiful riad, just a two minute walk from the medina but very quiet. Really lovely staff–they had helpful tips for where to go, and linked us up with a knowledgable tour guide. Wifi was spotty, but didn’t mind at all. I highly recommend, couldn’t imagine a better place to stay in Fez.

09/30/2015 An extremely memorable stay - the best!

From the beginning, everyone was helpful and friendly. We booked through trip advisor, as the price seemed very reasonable. After arriving at 2.30am from Marrakesh on the train, we organised a driver to take us to the Riad (it cost 10€ and was about 15 minutes – but ok so early in the morning). We couldn’t see much of the Riad in the dark but it was such a pleasure to wake up in a magnificent place! We decided very quickly we wanted to stay another night, and checked on trip advisor, there was an even cheaper twin room available downstairs with en suite – we were so lucky. The room before had a bathroom opposite the bedroom over the landing – but that was very nice too. The two breakfasts we had were full of delicious things – eggs, pancakes, bread, creme caramel, melon, banana, fresh orange juice, tea, the lot.

Rawan spoke good English and was very helpful and friendly. We even managed to catch the owner, Jerome, who had arrived from Paris on our second night, and was extremely welcoming and charming.

The Riad is very central in the old town, it is easy to walk everywhere. We are in Cafe Clock, which wasn’t that cheap, but had a good atmosphere, delicious food, and the water clock (look up) was amazing to see. There is a grand mosque close to Bab Boujeloud which is open to tourists – not as beautiful as the school in Marrakesh. Upstairs isn’t open, but if you ask to see it, they let you up. The smaller tannery (gueliz) is worth seeing, the other one is a bit further away. The gardens, about 10 mins walk from the Riad is also worth visiting, and it’s free.

We organised a taxi to Chefchaouen as none of the buses had space – it was 700 dirham, so around £55 for a 3.5 hour trip. Apparently that was good value. The bus is way cheaper but you have to book a few days before.

This is a must stay! Wish we could go back!

Thank you Riad Layalina

09/22/2015 I will keep coming back. Perfect location. Feels like home

My sister and I were visiting Fez for 5 days. The Riad Layalina became our home. It is a gorgeous and relaxing place to be and it really added to our Moroccan experience. It is only a three minute walk to the entrance of the Medina and only 8 minute walk to the Blue Gate. Great location! The free breakfast is fabulous, complete with fresh squeezed orange juice and yummy crepes and fruit. The rooftop terrace provides a relaxing place to read and offers amazing views of the city! We stayed on the ground floor in a room with our own private bathroom. Rooms are beautifully decorated and air conditioned.

Staff were particularly helpful and very kind. Everyday they made sure we knew exactly what we were doing and how to get there. They truly went above and beyond. After our adventures in the city we would return “home” and there was always someone around to greet us. They showed genuine interest in our experience and wanted us to have the very best stay possible. My sister broke her sunglasses and they even fixed them for her. The very last day both my sister and I were feeling ill and they allowed us to stay in the room until our flight for no extra cost. Mint tea was served to us with cookies, without us even asking. I cannot say enough about this Riad.

When I come back to visit, I will definitely stay with them again!

03/15/2015 Great location for the medina

We were welcomed warmly with mint tea and delicious petit fours. Dinner on the first night was delicious and substantial. Breakfasts were also delicious – fresh orange juice, omelette, breads, and on the last morning avocado lassi. Great location for the medina and merenid tombs. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was comfortable and fellow guests friendly too. Would strongly recommend.
