We arrived late at night and stepped into a jewel of a dream. Hassan Cohen introduced himself and took care of our every whim. Every aspect of our stay was impeccable, sumptuous and totally generous. Arranged by the riad, Azzedine was our guide the first day… knowledgeable, humorous, gracious, he gave us great insight and history as we walked the... More

We were received with a very warm welcome with tea and delicious moroccan biscuits. The room was nice and warm too. Lovely decor. They were helpful with our special dinner reservation at a local restaurant. They went out of their way to prepare breakfast early for us since we were leaving for a tour. The food was delicious and well... More

Our stay in Ryad Alya was the highlight of our trip to Morocco. The place itself is sumptuously decorated and combines modern luxury with a feel for the past. The food was outstanding and plentiful and worth coming home to every night. The spectacular views from the roof, and the internal views within the courtyard have to be seen to... More

I had a beautiful trip to Fes and felt completely pampered at Ryad Alya. My friend had made the reservations and it was a magical surprise for me. From the moment we arrived until we made arrangements to leave the staff was attentive and friendly. The Ryad itself is beautiful and well kept. Even on our fourth day there I... More

My friend and I recently spent part of our Moroccan vacation in Fes and we stayed at Ryad Alya both before and after a trip to Erg Chebbi. We had a wonderful experience. The ryad is beautiful. They had such a warm welcome ready for us with traditional mint tea and cookies. The staff was always very attentive and very... More

We felt right at home, and I mean this literally because we were treated like family. This is the nicest and most authentic riad we have stayed at in Morocco. Originally we were going to stay for only 1 night but the hospitality we received there made us book another night at this riad. Our only wish was that we... More

We had the best possible time in Fez and mr Cohen and his team were instrumental in providing the best possible care. I highly recommend his ryad! The staff was particularly outstanding! The courtyard is a masterpiece in itself, no different than a palace! Cezar & Irene

We spent 5 extraordinary days at the Ryad around the New Year that we celebrated there. The Ryad is wonderfully decorated by the work of local artisans, and has a splendid and authentic atmosphere. We stayed in the suite Rabat, that we warmly recommend. The staff was particularly attentive, competent and friendly. Food was excellent and we took our last... More

I have to start with the service. Hassan and Zuhir were extremely hospitable, warm and professional. The courtyard is beautiful and the breakfast is the best I received in Morocco, with eggs and all different kinds of bread, cheese and jelly. Perhaps the best feature of the Ryad is the magnificent view of the city from the rooftop. The Ryad... More

We spent 3 nights in Fes during our 17 days travelling across Morocco. This riad is one of the best hotel I have ever been to in this trip. The staffs are excellent with great service minds. The riad's owner and all staffs always make sure we got everything we need and we enjoy our stay there very much. One... More
