We didn't stay at Ryad Alya (as we had already booked other accommodations) but it's a beautiful place with fascinating architecture and unique rooms. We came to Ryad Alya for a cooking class on the recommendation of our host. It was a really great experience and the culinary highlight of a month-long trip! Hassnae walked us through the souks to...

What a value this Ryad is! Ryad Alya rivals Morrocan palaces in its ornamentation, the rooms are not just luxurious, but enormous, the home-cooked food was some of the best we had anywhere, and you can get a private hammam and massage on premises! The relaxation of Ryad Alya (and Fès) are the perfect ending to a long holiday.

We stayed in the Meknes suite which was fantastic, excellent bathroom and very comfortable bed. Very welcoming staff, lovely Riad, with an excellent terrace with panoramic views. Five minute walk from the Blue Gate, so very good location. Each room is based on a style of the city it is named after, which makes it feel very individualistic, as well... More

Let me start this long review by saying this was our first time to Morocco. We fell in love with the people of Morocco. Very kind and welcoming. No place was that shown more than at our Ryad. The entire staff at the Ryad Alya made our time in Fes wonderful. Hassnae and her staff: Omar, Assia and the manager,... More

We stayed in 4 different cities while traveling through Morroco and Fes was our favorite, in large part because of our experience at Ryad Alya! The staff was amazing! It felt as if we were staying with friends or family. They were very helpful with setting things up and suggesting things to do. Every evening when we returned they would... More

We stayed at Ryad Alya for three nights last month (May) and were treated like royalty. I had a knee problem and found the stairs tricky, so the staff relocated our breakfast from the top floor to the ground floor courtyard, resulting in them having to transport the food from the top floor down to us. The location is perfect... More

The building is simply beautiful. It is like being in a one an a thousand nights stories. The rooms are kind or average for a hotel of this category. The manager is simply not up to his responsibilities. I asked for the rates for a stay extension and he did not even take his view out of his computer screen... More

We stayed here for 6 days. Hassnae and crew were excellent hosts and helped us find daily excursions and multiple day trips via private tour driver (Volubilis, Mkeknes, Ifran, Chefchouen). Breakfast was customized to our preference and the friendly turtles were a hit with my daughter.
