The Riad Ilayka is a wonderful place where to stay. It has great workers who make you feel more than Royalty. Great welcome with treats and smoothies, a grand tour of the magnificent Riad. The rooms are very nice and cozy with Moroccan décor. The breakfast in the morning is nothing you have had before. It is a load of...

This is a lovely place right in the center of Medina. It's not so easy to find, call them to pick you up. It is beautifully decorated and cosy. The owner, Nadia has a very good taste for interieurs. And everyone is very friendly and helpful. Whatever you need, they will help you organise it. The rooftop has a wonderful...

We had a great stay in Riad Ilayka. Once inside the walls, the craziness of the medina seems like a distant world. As it is diffiuclt to negotiate the medina without getting lost, we rang the riad from outside Café Argana ( about 300m away) and were escorted by Muhammad to the riad through the maze of alleyways (easy once...

Staff is extremely nice to the point that it's almost uncomfortable- constantly asking if it's all ok. They will cook for you and bring everything (but wouldn't tell you the price). We were very happy they cooked gluten free for us. We ordered a hot meal - which was good- asked for the price beforehand and was told all will...

We greatly enjoyed our three nights in this Riad. Though our room was on the ground floor, this was not an issue - but rooms higher in the building might be preferable. There is plenty of space to relax and the roof has a delightful sort of belvedere from which you can see the snowy Atlas. The staff are friendly...

Perfectly situated in the heart of Medina, we have arranged the airport pick up service and so glad that we did as google map did not show the exact locations of the Riad.

Like most riads all is hidden away until you enter the door. Then you are amazed by the intricate decor. We were given a very warm welcome On the first night we are in the road and the food was excellent and very good. The wine was also reasonable and of excellent quality. Breakfast was very good too

I visited Morocco for 2 days with my husband for a Romantic break. Unfortunately our room was double booked and we were put into a nearby riad for night 1. We were compensated with a sincere apology, some wonderful Moroccan canapes and a bottle of champagne - laid out beautifully on the terrace - so we really could not grumble....

Riad was nice and good but the best part was the super friendly staff! They made us feel like we are one big family with them. Good center location to see the city. The room was a bit dark for us though.
