The ryad is beautiful and comfortable. There is an underground parking close to it for the car. The staff is very kind and available and has called for us a tourist guide who has driven us throughout the Medina. On the top of the Ryad the terrace offers a beautiful panorama.

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. Great value. Hassan Cohen, the manager was so kind and helpful. Home baked pastries and biscuits tasted amazing. Breakfasts were different each day and delicious. We stayed in the Casablanca suite which was immaculate. Thank you Hassan and your lovely team.

Firstly, this is a review that is long overdue, but memories of it has never left this wandering soul. Finally found the ideal time to reflect and put thoughts to fingers with wonderful comments that is straight from the heart. The service provided by the staff were second to none.

The Riad itself is absolutely stunning. The courtyard area is filled with fountains and mosaics and feels like such an escape from the busting medina outside. Mr. Hassan is incredibly helpful and helped book and plan our entire stay in Fes. We chose to have dinner at the riad all 3 nights that we stayed and every dinner was beyond... More

The architecture of this place is simply breathtaking. Built in the early 19th century and since remodeled/restored, the attention to detail in everything from the giant carved wooden doors, and meticulous plaster ceilings to the old mosaic flooring is bound to surprise even the more refined traveler. What's more, the staff was absolutely fantastic helping to make our stay (honeymoon)... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Ryad Alya and loved it. The Rabat suite was perfect: tranquil and clean with exquisite furnishings. Mr. Hassan was so courteous and helpful. It met all of our expectations and more.

We had such an amazing time at Ryad Alya. Mr. Cohen and his staff really looked after us and made sure we had a great time in his unique city. The location was perfect for exploring the Medina and the ryad itself is stunningly beautiful. Make sure you request dinner on the rooftop at sunset. I would say that was... More

I recently returned from staying at the Ryad Alya for 8 nights. The location is close to the Place Batha, 5 minute walk to the Bab Boujloud and just outside the medina. I stayed in the Fes Suite, and beautiful two room suite with incredibly high ceilings, and canopy bed, and easy access right off the courtyard. Hassan, the manager,... More

We were pampered and well taken care of in this, our home away from home, for eight nights during the Fez Sacred Music Festival in June. The charming Hassan and the entire staff filled our hearts with their happiness and I would recommend this Ryad to my closest family and friends. The rooms are very clean, the water is hot,... More

One of the most beautiful places I've stayed in. Rooms are unique and really beautifully decorated, the whole place is like a little peaceful oasis in the heart of the city! There's also a really nice roof terrace and absolutely amazing staff. Can't imagine a better place to stay in Fes! Read more about Ryad Alya from my blog (in... More
