“Riad Layalina - fantastic place to stay in Fez”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

We could not have been happier with our stay there! From Ali, the taxi driver, who picked us up at the airport to Otman who really went out of his way to be kind, helpful, good fun, friendly and cooperative. We were welcomed with a traditional mint tea and pastries. In fact, we enjoyed Otman's company so much that on the day of our flight back to the UK, after touring the Middle Atlas region, we dropped by once again to say our goodbyes to him. Such a nice man!

The riad is decorated in the traditional way with a fountain in the middle and a small pool to cool yourself during the heat of the day. We were only a stone's throw away from one of the main thoroughfares into the medina and yet it is an oasis of calm. It is spotlessly clean.

Breakfasts are copious and varied, the location is just on the edge of the medina with a roof top terrace which gives fantasic views of the old city, especially at night.

It is the staff that make this place so special. If we ever come back to Morocco we know where our home will be.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a view, you will probably want one of the higher rooms but they all seemed t...

Me and my girlfriend spent a night in this fascinating riad, in the medina of Fes.
Everything was great: accommodation, position of the riad, architecture of the building, facilities (there's a private parking).
Jerome and the 2 guys of staff were Incredibly friendly (they welcomed us with a rich Moroccan lunch, when we arrived in the middle of the afternoon).
Definitely a great experience: suggested!!

We stayed at Riad Layalina for two nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The view from the patio is marvellous, the courtyard adorable. Right next to the Medina and still totally calm and quiet, very relaxing. The opulent breakfast and service was amazing.

We were lucky to receive a 50 % discount, we think it's totally worth the full price also.

Great place to stay inside the medina, beautifully decorated and run by the the wonderful Jerome and his staff Said and Redwan. 2 minutes from the main streets of the medina yet very quiet and peaceful. Would recommend to anybody. Thanks for a great stay.

Everything about our stay in the Riad Layalina was wondeful. It's like a little oasis when you walk in: gorgeous courtyard with a little pool. We were welcomed with sweet tea, Moroccan sweets, and a small kefta tagine! Really above and beyond. The guy in charge was great, really helpful, and he even walked us to a place he recommended for lunch when we asked for help. The room we stayed in was amazing, and as usual in Morocco, it came with a stunning bathroom. You can imagine when the aristocrats would bathe here! And the breakfast was superb - with a little change to it every day. I would definitely recommend this riad - and Fes in general!

This Riad is stunning. The service is excellent. The courtyard and seating area are utterly gorgeous. The rooms look perfect, and they are spacious. Breakfast was lovely. The arrival tea, sweets and egg tagine were all delicious and very much appreciated. The location was good, on the edge of the medina, but very central to lots of great stuff, such as the Bab Boujloud, the Clock Cafe, and Medersa Bou Ianina. It also has a private, secure car park, very rare in the medina, if not unique. It was excellent value. The one problem which brings it down is the noise. It is located near the road into Atlizen car park and the ring road. The windows are authentic style, therefore not good at keeping out any noise. I believe this Riad needs to invest in some double-glazed windows,, even if it does mean losing a little of the total Moroccan look. We actually had ear plugs and used them, and even so, heard every kind of noise: cars, dogs, scooters, kids, the mosque, etc.... If you are a sound sleeper, you will be fine, or else bring earplugs. Would I stay again? Probably, but I might ask for a room on a lower floor, which might help. We stayed in the two bed suite with our two kids who didn't think the noise was a problem, so that is a different viewpoint. I do recommend Riad Layalina overall.
