I went there October 2013 the service was amazing. I had a breakfast at the roof top with an amazing view and obviously the food was excellent food, everything was fresh with only seasonal fruits. There's not much to do in fes so you can travel to casablanca (2 hours) or Rabat by train it's amazing. They should have a... More

The place is absolutely stunning and renovated to the best local standards. It has only 5 rooms and the hosts are lovely people who will cook you breakfast and offer you tea, making you feel really at home. The terrace and the overall ambiance is truly unique, including the tortuous way to get to the riad. If you're parking it's... More

Many reviewers have noted that this property is impeccably restored and recommended various rooms. All true--read them. But what makes Laayoun truly special in my book is the warmth and kindness of Jean-Claude and his lovely staff, especially Simone. From the moment we arrived -- no request was too much. We got excellent directions from Simone (of course we still... More

Riad Laayoun was our home for 6 weeks this summer while studying arabic at Subul Assalam Center for Arabic Language. Our four kids were welcomed in this beautiful home, along with grandparents visiting as well. It is a place that is out of a fairytale and the moment you walk in, you just take it all in. The grandeur of... More

When we arrived at the Medina it was quite sensory consuming; images, sounds, full of life. Simone met us at the medina entrance and guided us through the streets to the Riad (he provided excellent service and is such a nice person). What a beautiful surprise it was when we entered the door - a peaceful haven restored with colour... More

I booked with out knowing a single thing about riads and what to expect. I write this on the final day of my trip to Fes as I wanted to capture it before I moved on. The riad is absolutely breathtaking and a surprise I did not expect. From the outside there's nothing to suggest how beautiful it is. The... More

Restaurant Riad Louna is located in the Riad of the same name, just on the edge of the most vibrant part of the Fes medina. Its perfect location is complemented by great service, offered by friendly staff. The traditional Fassi cuisine has reached excellence at this place with its tajines, couscous and a selection of mezze plates. Everything we have... More

Me and my partner could not stop staring and taking pictures from different angles: this Riad has been so tastefully restored, every single detail that speaks of elegance and exudes harmony. It is an absolute masterpiece, from the beautifully executed carvings, to the mosaics, furniture, ironwork… we fell in love with it. It is hidden away in a non-touristy area... More

We are all impressed with this place. At first, Simo took us along the alley which is a kind of busy and market liked....Once we entered the door, it is like a new magical place...remarkable courtyard and cozy room. The bathroom is on the mezzanine which is not much practical but it is in Medina. Especially the food..it is gorgeous.... More
