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

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

We stayed at Riad Laayoun for 3 nights early October 2014. The Riad is a beautiful historical building within the Medina. It has lavish rooms, and a magical central courtyard and roof terrace. The hosts are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. We arrived, a bit dusty and tired after a swirly bus ride from Chefchouen, to a welcoming greeting out... More

Riad Laayoun was recommended by a friend of mine and I cannot thank her enough for the tip. It was just perfect. They arranged a pick up from the airport and Simo was waiting for us at the plaza Rcif to take us to riad. He was very friendly and he kept pointing markers to be able to find it... More

This place was simply perfect. Jean claude gave us the suite on the second floor and it was the best room that we had our whole trip to Morocco. We arrived in Fes after 5 hours of bus and they came and pick us up to the plaza, which was a real help since we were very tired and finding... More

My husband and I stayed at Riad Laayoun for the first time, and we couldn't be happier with our experience there. The Riad and the rooms are clean, cozy, and well-equipped. The staff is very nice, friendly, and helpful. Jean-Claude is genuinely a wonderful person. He would give you tips on places to visit and hook you up with services... More
