We stayed at 3 different Riads during our stay in Morocco and this was by far our favourite! The room was beautiful and cozy with a large bathroom, plus the common area was comfortable and welcoming. But what we enjoyed most was the social atmosphere as dinner was served in the common areas so there was opportunity to socialize with... More

My girlfriend has booked this Ryad after doing extensive research for places to stay at Fez. It turned out to be way better than expected. Our host Hassan Cohen was super polite and accommodating. He helped us plan our itinerary with places to see and helpful tips. The dinner and breakfast we've had at the Ryad without a doubt was... More

Wonderful riad - the staff were excellent, and the food was absolutely fantastic. The breathtaking view from the rooftop was probably the highlight of our stay in Fes, and the trip to the riad's hammam was one of the highlights of our entire trip to Morocco.

I don't usually write reviews but I felt that this one is well deserved. We arrived to Fes after midnight and right away Zouhir, who works there at night and also makes the breakfast welcomed us very warmly and showed us to our rooms. He made us feel comfortable right away. At breakfast the next morning everything was delicious. The... More

Everything was perfect: location, staff, breakfast, dinner, rooms, internet, hamam. We were even upgraded to one of its suites. We can recommend this riad to everyone. Secure parking is also possible close to the riad (Place Batha) where M. Cohen, the manager, can pick you up. You may want to watch out for false guides when you come closer to... More

Nicely renovated ryad. Good kitchen with dinner on the roof terrace. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. We were recommended a nearby restaurant for an outside-hotel-dinner. This "restaurant" was another ryad with questionable food.

I've just spent 3 nights at Riad Alya and cannot recommend it enough- Hassan and his team were fantastic, giving us free mint tea and cookies all the time and making our stay very comfortable. The roof terrace is fantastic and the location was great. You won't go wrong in choosing this place!

I spent two weeks driving around the country, and made a fairly solid circuit. Started in Rabat, Marrakech, Ouarzazate, M'hamid, Dades Gorge, and ended in Fez. Obviously this doesn't make me an expert, but it did require me to stay in a boatload of different riads, hotels, and airbnb's throughout the country. This riad was, by far, the best experience...

had a fantastic trip to Fes with some friends and was lucky enough to stay at the Ryad Alya. The manager Hassan couldn't do enough for us and booked us a brilliant guide who showed us the medina. The food at the Ryad was amazing and all the staff were very friendly and accommodating.
