Riad Layalina Fez
Ranked #7 of 100 Hotels in Fes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Loved this place: beautiful interior, relaxing entry rooms/foyer, great staff (Sayeed, Simo and Osama), decent breakfast (included), great location (by the Medina & parking lot, hence a bit noisy as well). The Riad welcomes you with a tagine, mint tea and cookies. Sayeed makes excellent egg tagine. Will definitely go back to this place every time I visit Fes and to feed the neighborhood kittens.
When in Morocco, please take doggy bags (mention cats to the waiter and they pack an easy to open foil pack) of your left over meals for the cats and kittens.....they even eat couscous. Insha'Allah!

Room Tip: Top floors for view, lower floors for the soothing fountain.

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!
