This Riad was easily as charming and beautifully decorated as many of the madrassas or mosques in Fes. On a hot afternoon we were blissfully happy to spend time by the pool gazing up at the surrounding building and drinking moroccan tea prepared by the helpful staff. They were kind enough to meet us on arrival with tea, sweets and... More

We very much enjoyed our recent stay in Riad Layalina. Jerome was very helpful during the booking process, we were met at the train station and taken to the Riad. To our great surprise and delight we were then given a delicious tagine, water and mint tea, as it was quite late at night. We weren't charged for this and... More

We had an amazing stay here. The riad is beautiful and the breakfasts are amazing. Try the honey and the jams!! They guys are great and very helpful! Well worth the visit!!! The rooms are highly decorated in Moroccan style but there is still a relaxed peacefulness about it.

Thanks to Said, Simon, and the whole Layalina staff for a very nice 4 night stay. My wife, adult son, and I completely enjoyed our time there. It's a beautiful, comfortable, accessible home base right next to the action. I'll miss my afternoon pool plunges, as well as your thoughtful kindness. A great place!

This riad is a real Gem. We arrived after a 3 hour car trip to be greeted at the car and escourted from the streets of Fes into this most beautiful courtyard where are our luggage was put to one side and we were provided with some wonderful mint team and homemade Moroccan biscuits. It didn't stop there, as it... More

As we arrived, without even asking our names we have been welcomed in the wonderful patio with Moroccan tea and, after a while, with a delicious tajine. Only once rested from the traveling and filled with food, they started with the formalities. Staff is kind and ready to help. Location is very good: just on the border of the old... More

Loved this place: beautiful interior, relaxing entry rooms/foyer, great staff (Sayeed, Simo and Osama), decent breakfast (included), great location (by the Medina & parking lot, hence a bit noisy as well). The Riad welcomes you with a tagine, mint tea and cookies. Sayeed makes excellent egg tagine. Will definitely go back to this place every time I visit Fes and... More

We could not have been happier with our stay there! From Ali, the taxi driver, who picked us up at the airport to Otman who really went out of his way to be kind, helpful, good fun, friendly and cooperative. We were welcomed with a traditional mint tea and pastries. In fact, we enjoyed Otman's company so much that on... More

Me and my girlfriend spent a night in this fascinating riad, in the medina of Fes. Everything was great: accommodation, position of the riad, architecture of the building, facilities (there's a private parking). Jerome and the 2 guys of staff were Incredibly friendly (they welcomed us with a rich Moroccan lunch, when we arrived in the middle of the afternoon).... More
