Location (8 minutes walk from the Blue Door/Bab Boujloud: the main entrance of the Medina), friendly staff, awesome breakfast… The Riad is amazing: it looks like one of the main sights of Fez. It was really cleaned and was cleaned every day. Our most memorable time was having breakfast in the terrace with the great view. We just want to... More

Small riad style house in the center of Fes. Conveniently located for parking your car and for visiting the old town on foot. Very well decorated with luxury features. Great roof terrace for breakfast in the morning sun. Kindest staff you could ever meet and very talented cook. Well worth the money. Stay here if you can.

Entering the hotel we were a bit sceptical at first because little could be seen from the entrance but the welcoming smile of Souky at the reception was the first indication that we were somewhere special. Entering the courtyard was like being transported into another century. Riad Layla is a beautiful small Hotel ideal for couples and small family group... More

We stayed at Riad Layla from Oct 2 to 5 and were more than impressed. Riad Layla was the first place I've stayed that truly warranted a review (good or bad). From the moment you arrive you are treated like welcome family. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The bed was good. Breakfast was delicious. Dinners were tasty and well... More

Stayed Sept 6, 2014 through 10. A beautiful peaceful oasis located easy walking distance to the souk, parks and Fes Jdid. Dinner and breakfast on the terrace were wonderful. The staff went beyond making us feel like welcome guests and made us feel like part of the Layla family. Jordan and Janice

Great place; a peaceful oasy in the city. Route to the Riad is very well indicated along the street (very useful in morocco where it's easy to get lost at first), the room is huge, perfectly air-conditioned and furnished with every needs. Michael the owner, such as the entire staff, is cool and friendly. We had dinner up on the... More

We stayed in the Mezzanine Room on August 4th-August 6th. The room was so beautiful, and the lobby is gorgeous. The hosts, Tayeb and Souky were so amazing, they spoke excellent English and were so helpful and friendly. This riad is beautiful, the decor is makes it feel like being in a fairy tale from Arabian Nights. They provided comfortable... More

We stayed in this riad for two nights and our experience was very good. We were given the room on the top, just in the terrace, which is very large and has a bathroom to-die-for!! Breakfast was good, but nothing special, however, the view makes up for that. It was the last leg of our Moroccan holiday and we were... More

Riad Layla is just excellent choice! The Riad has a great location just couple minutes walking to the old Medina and is easy to find (we took a taxi from the train station and go to "Batha"; there are signs from Batha directly to the Riad). The building of the Riad is very nice, especially the architecture. From the very... More

We stayed three nights and could have stayed more. Our room, suite Sara, was large with an equally large bathroom. Souky and the entire staff were very helpful. They arranged for a guide in Fes and a car and driver to visit Meknes. Breakfast is served on the roof and it was great. It was different every morning but always... More
