My fiance and I returned from this riad almost a week ago, and we are still giddy from our fantastic stay here. We were met by Said in the nearby parking lot, who brought us and our bags into Riad Layalina-- as soon as we entered, our jaws dropped: it is stunning! We were offered a tajine and Moroccan tea & marveled at all the riad's beauty. There is a lovely rooftop terrace, that overlooks the historic medina, and the riad is in the perfect location to visit all the city's must-sees (for ex. the "Blue Gate" can be reached in less than 10 mins!). The staff helped make our stay extra memorable-- their warmth and hospitality made us feel like family, and we were truly sad to leave. After long days of exploring the medina, we ate delicious meals at the riad, were able to sleep soundly in the gorgeous and comfortable room we had booked, had no shortage of hot water (which unfortunately was not the case in many other places we stayed in Morocco) and updating friends and families on our journey was easy as the wifi worked very well.
There are many riads to choose from in/near the medina, but I would wholeheartedly recommend Riad Layalina for a perfect stay in Fes. Everything from the sweet staff, the yummy breakfasts, the location and the beauty of the riad was absolutely sublime. We had a fantastic experience, and will remember it fondly!
