We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Layalina. We were met by a taxi organised by the Riad and made to feel very welcome on our arrival. Staff were all very helpful, accomodation very comfortable and plenty of hot water. They organised a meal that was more than adequate after our late return from Chechaouen .The breakfasts were amazing!!

Hotel's Favorite
I absolutely loved my stay at Jerome's. The Riad is located 2 minutes walk from the Medina entrance and next to a taxi parking lot which makes it easily accessible yet close enough for one to get into the medina. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was scrumptious. Morocco can wear on you in someways but the staff here gives you the real Moroccan welcome and curtesy .Totally worth it.

This was our first stop in Morocco and it couldn't have been better. The place is gorgeous, just like you imagined and even better than the pictures. The staff was extremely helpful. They constantly went out of their way for us. We arrived late and we're too tired to go out for dinner. They tell you that if you want to eat there to give them notice (they make everything from scratch so they need the notice to buy the fresh ingredients from the market), but in spite of that, Mohammad saw our situation and offered to make us a simple meal vegetarian tagine (similar to Shakshuka) that was perfect (and didn't even charge us for it). Mohammad also had great tips and advice for getting around in Fes and the medina (what was safe, where to eat) and since we were two women traveling alone it was greatly appreciated. It is also a great location, 1/2 block from the "main street" of the medina" and we always felt extremely safe, even alone at night. If you're looking for a genuine Moroccan experience and want to meet some great people in the process, this is the place. Highly recommend.

Lovely Riad, great location. The only quibble I have is they charged 3 Euros for mint tea. When you are paying 100 Euros a night it seems nickle and diming to charge for mint tea which a lot of restaurants and riads give for free. Oh, and another quibble is they say they take credit cards, but they really don't and put up a big fuss when I insisted. Sure they have to pay visa 5%, but it is a convenience for the customer which should be built into the price of this not-cheap riad. Very good hot water and nice and warm rooms.

Dear David Thanks for taking the time to rate us. We are very surprised as you mentioned being charged 3 € for a whole jug of mint tea. The "extras menu" is displayed everywhere in the riad. Personally, when I travel and ask for beverages that are not included in the hotel pricing it seems to me logical to pay for these ; paying for a room does not mean that all extras are for free. The price of the room could be 3 times more expensive it wouldn't change anything to the fact that extras remain extras -:) . Moreover, we find it really unfair as we are the only place offering a tajine and fruit salad as a welcome... Anyway, I wish you all the best. Warm smiles

Highly highly reccomend! Right from the booking experience where i made a mistake in payment and the owner Jerome Was super accommodating in adjusting my fare to the amazing caretaker Mohammed. As a single woman traveler everyone has warned me to be safe in fes, owing to induce ya, however Mohammed showed me the inner ways to the Médina, offered tajine upon arrivals, and when I expressed an interest in couscous he made it available for dinner.my stay at Riad Layalina fes was the epitome of Moroccan hospitality where they invite us into their home and hearts with all the warmth
