Our suites were spectacular and the roof terrace was a great for enjoying dinner on. The staff were friendly and helpful, making tea and snacks for us at any time of the day and night and doing laundry for me too.

We stayed 6 nights at Riad Layali with our friends while visiting Fes and its surroundings. This Riad is a real heaven, beautifully renovated, keeping the authenticity of the moroccan riads: the blue colours of Fes, the mosaics etc… It is sometimes shown by city guides as an example of a "traditional Riad". The roof top/terrace has a great view... More

We loved Riad Layali Fes! The hotel AND the people who work there are just the BEST! I actually couldn't say enough great things about Riad Layali Fes. The place itself is beautiful, with a great roof deck as well. I stayed with a friend of mine there for 3 nights while enjoying Fes. We had dinner there one night... More

We had a beautiful 2 storey room, but if the outside windows were open it could be quite noisy until well into the evening. They have a rooftop terrace with a good view. Wifi was free but very poor quality,

Pros: Beautiful rooms, lobby, everything Large rooms Beautiful terrace Not the best food of the trip, but not terrible Cons: One room had a staircase up to the bathroom One thing to keep in mind about staying the the medina is that it is difficult to navigate around on your own.

Do not be deceived from the outside. This Riad is beautiful. Our room was very comfortable and large, much bigger than you would expect. Had my best undisturbed sleep in years. Staff are all friendly and food is good. Took many pictures of the architecture and decor. Definitely recommend staying here.

We stayed in Riad Layali for two nights while visiting Fez earlier this month. The Riad is fabulous, spacious and clean — the latest is probably the most important thing to me when it comes to choosing a hotel, so I was pleasantly surprised. The Riad also has a nice rooftop terrace that showcases a panoramic view of the city... More

After many days of traveling around Morocco, we were excited when we walked into this tradition immaculate Riad. Staff was welcoming with mint tea and cookies in a gorgeous sitting room. Then they lead us up to the rooftop suite and we were blown away with our room. We wanted to stay in this room forever. The bed was very... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights, it was booked for us by our tour company, Desert Majesty. Mohamed, the manager, came to meet us and our guide and driver on the street and led us back to the riad. It was exquisitely decorative. We slept in "Suite Alcazar" - pictures on the website- it was beautiful and... More
