Ryad Alya is a work of art: the interior shows true craftsmanship and is a great demonstration of Moroccan decor. The terrace has lovely views of the city. Ryad Alya is centrally located, one of the main entrances to the souk is less than a 10 minute walk and is easily navigated. The staff was very accommodating and they were...

We stayed in the Fes Suite which is right on the ground floor and all 3 nights noise from a large group that lasted until 11:30/12 kept us awake :( it was disappointing that the staff didn't try to keep them more quiet as it got so late. With that said, the Ryad is gorgeous and Hassnae is fantastic -...

My sister and I stayed here for three nights and every single night was so loud due to other guest activity that we barely slept. The staff acknowledged it and apologized after the first night but each night after they did nothing to stop the noise. Dishes clanking, guests laughing and stomping all night. It was a large party, yes,...

I stayed in the Tanger room. I believe this contributed to my dislike of Fes as the room had no window and the bathroom was a level up 19 stairs. This was inconvenient for getting ready in the morning or if you had to get up during the night. The rooftop terrace was nice. The ryad is conveniently located and...

The service was above and beyond my expectations. Hassnae and staff took care of everything- from the driver who waited at the airport to pick us up, the tour of the ryad and mint tea to welcome us, the luxurious hammam and massage, delicious dinners and fresh spectacular breakfasts, arranging an official guide for a walking tour of the medina,...

My husband and I stayed in Ryad Alya for four nights. The whole place was stunningly beautiful. We had dinner there on the first night, and after a long day of travel, having a lovely dinner (slightly pricey however) with live acoustic guitar was amazing. They make really nice Moroccan salads, and the bowl of pomegranate seeds was lovely. We...

We stayed at the Ryad in December. Overall we had a great experience. The Ryad was very quaint.

“Get a room with a window and a bathroom on the same level.”

“I booked a room with a double bed. We got an isle that had been accommodated as a room. One bed as you passed the door and the other one at the end of the isle. One of the beds was awful. That is not a room. Not good at all. The personnel were extremely helpful. They tried to fix the bed as soon as I told them about it. They also gave us some instructions that were helpful. ”
