Stepping up to the door of Riad Layalina gives the traveller a bit of a mystery. The door is very nondescript. You think, perhaps this is not the hotel that I booked. Then walking down a labyrinth, you come to a spectacular courtyard with gorgeous architecture and a refreshing pool. Yes, you did choose the perfect oasis to stay in... More

Our stay in this Riad was very good if a little expensive compared to a similar place we stayed elsewhere in Morocco. The room was nice and the air conditioning made the stay very comfortable in the July temperatures! The staff were helpful and accommodating.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The ornate architecture, lovely furnishing and courtyard pool were stunning. We had a spacious suite with awesome air conditioning. Our breakfast was delicious and featured Moroccan dishes. The Riad is not far from the blue gate where there are plenty of restaurants. The medina shopping is very close. The stairways are kind of steep... More

We travelled independently in Morocco for two weeks with a motorbike and spent our one night in Fez at Riad Layalina. The riad is beautifully decorated - simply stunning at night with the pool lights and mosaic covered walls and pillars. We were welcomed on arrival by a lovely young boy who was very gentle in nature and he helped... More

We had four days in Fez at the Layalina. We have been to Morrocco many times but never stayed in Fez. Decided to stay in traditional accommodation situated on the edge of the Medina, a perfect place for site seeing. The service and helpfulness was the best I have experienced any where in the world, nothing was to much trouble.... More

Nothing was too much trouble for Radione who looked after us superbly. When our TV didn't work a new one was installed almost immediately. The rooms are exotically furnished & very comfortable. The place is spotlessly clean. Very conveniently located right next to the Medina. We also did 2 day trips booked through the Riad with Ali their driver which... More

Jerome and staff provided exceptional hospitality. The Riad is well appointed, clean and peaceful. We had no major complaints, but you should note that the bathroom is private, but not attached to the room (it is only 3 meters from the room).

We are 2 female friends who travel together often and we stayed at Riad Layalina May 11-14, 2015. The location was perfect - the views from the windows were magnificent and we were only a very short walk to the Medina. Everything we asked for was met with "Whatever you wish, madame". We felt well taken care of and very... More

Very majestic, a lovely home away from home. The staff were wonderful and went above and beyond my expectations: friendly, helpful, and family-minded. This and the location, the Riad's ambiance, and price made this the jewel of Fes. I look forward to returning again and again!

I had a quick but amazing stay in Layalina. I would like to highlight the quality of the services provided by the very efficient and kind staff. They provided an amazing dinner experience, particularly for me it was important as I requested your help for something special and it was attended. The Tagine was the best I had in 8... More
