My husband and I were in Morocco for 5 weeks and this was one of the nicest ryads we stayed in. This is a beautifully restored building with elegant Morrocan furniture and a lovely terrace. The room we stayed in was cute and well appointed. Breakfasts were great. The staff were incredible, especially our wonderful waiter. They were so accommodating,... More

I was travelling with my sister and we stayed in this BEAUTIFUL riad for only 3 nights. Besides of all the warnings of how difficult is to find your place inside the Medina, this Riad was easy to find. This Riad is wonderfully decorated, and the images of the place available here are as reliable as the place itself. Hassan... More

5 star ryad- best ryad in fes and possibly morrocco. Hassan and the team are so lovely and pleasant and would always come back to ryad alya. Breakfast was good and stayed in the casablance suite which is truly amazing. The ryad has wonderful architecture.

The Ryad is excellent! We stayed in the Casablanca suite as well as in the Fes suite and had the best sleep ever! The spa is awesome and all the staff extremely kind. They got us bus tickets to go to Merzouga that we paid at the hotel so that we had nothing to worry about! And their food was... More

We stayed 1 night as a treat and enjoyed the Meal & Hamman service offered. Hassan and his colleagues were just brilliant. Extremely polite & accommodating to any request. The restoration of the building has been symphathetically, the stone work is exceptional. We thoroughly recommend.

Owner and staff were excellent. Set up tours, dinner and catered to every request. I recommend this to solo travelers and families. Great place to stay. Mr. Hassan clearly knows what hospitality is. Good restaurants minutes away.

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
