“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Stayed for three nights and was pleasantly surprised! Everyone was very helpful especially the two guys working there and also the breakfast lady! Love the fruit juice in the morning! Wished that the bathroom is connected to the room but everything else is wonderful! Thankyou!

This Riad is perfect. And what makes it so good is Jerome and the people around him. He was so kind in helping us choose what to visit and we did get to see the best in Fes. The inner garden is WONDERFUL, it was a shock for us to come from the outside chaos into this oasis, where time seems to stay still. The view from the terrace is also great, you can very well enjoy a cup of mint tee. The guide Jerome arranged us for the medina was also great (didn't take us to any shops, and spoke good english - Fettah Abdel fettah160@gmail.com). I trully recommend. Enjoy Fes.

We only stayed one night in Fes, our focus was to visit the countryside and not major cities. With that being said we loved the Riad, it is stunning. Our room was beautiful however the bed was very hard. The bathroom was nice and the water was hot. The breakfast was wonderful, one of the best on our trip! The location is perfect, quiet but still close to the Medina. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the parking is close by and safe.

Riad Layalina is recommended for couples looking for a quiet and easy accessible place to stay, right next to the Medina of Fes. Comfortable and spacious rooms, good kitchen and friendly personnel. Free parking on a private parking lot is a nice bonus.

Fez was our last stop in our travels through Morocco. Staying at Riad Layalina was the perfect ending! It was by far the best and most beautiful place we stayed. The staff was wonderful and we fell in love with them! The room was large, beautiful, and gave us spectacular views of Fez. We had a key not only for our room but to enter the door to the riad (very unusual to receive that advantage)! The public areas of this riad are exceptionally beautiful and guests obviously enjoyed this advantage as we met wonderful people staying there that were from U.S., Italy, Tanzinia~what a joy! The breakfasts were large and lovely. This Riad is very close to the entrance to the souk but just outside enough to not be in the madness (PERFECT)!
I am a picky clean freak from the U.S. and Riad Layalina met my standard! If we are ever back in the area I would not go anywhere else. They are fantastic on all levels!

Room Tip: I believe that all there rooms would be beautiful as it seemed they all had views of Fez as well as...

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!

We stayed here for 4 nights, in our almost-month long trip to Morocco. This was the last accommodation, and by far, one of the best riads!! We were even lucky since it was under promotion.

1. The location is great. We arrived there from the Gare-routiere in Fez, and it takes only about 10min walk from there! It's right next to the gate to the souks in medina, but not in the complex jungle of small passages in medina.

2. The food. We were served a dinner when we'd arrived, which was the first time for us to be treated in any riads. The breakfast as well was just great.

3. Staff. The staff were very helpful, though not very fluent in English, dealing with my flight ticket, etc.

4. Etc. Wifi worked really good!

I'd definately suggest this riad, it's the PERFECT place in FEZ!!!
