Riad Layalina Fez

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 October 2017

Well I must start off by saying this was my first time to Fes and my friends second time.i had seen pictures on the website of this beautiful and exquisite Riad. We were not disappointed by this experience.
On our arrival we were warmly welcomed and what we had seen in the pictures on the web could not really describe what we felt about this Riad as although the pictures are stunning the feeling on arriving was one of relaxation and almost instantaneous belonging. The beautiful colours the fountain outside our room and the impressive pool to cool off in after a long walk through the Medina.
We were also served a Tagine of eggs a beautiful sauce and selection of breads which was very welcoming.
The bedroom was again stunning and tranquil and attention to detail was evident. 2 four poster single beds that were draped in a lovely sequinned material leading on to a deep large bath tub made out of stone come shower. Every effort it seemed to put you at ease. It all flowed and married together to enhance the relaxed feeling. Don't get me wrong it was different to a plush hotel (thankfully) everything flowed and there was a calm feeling about the Riad in general.
We took some steps up to the roof where you had a view of these ancient buildings all irregular and flowing in this hot arid arid climate. A Mosque not very far from us however this was expected once we had found that there were 785 Mosques in Fes and the calling to prayer was moving to say the least.
So the roof top terrace covered in a canopy with stunning ornate railings all around you casting silouhettes on the stone work around us whilst sitting there taking in the mileau the calm feeling this place evoked.
The guests we saw from time to time almost seemed handpicked or maybe they felt this true sense of calm also.
The walls throughout with there burnished finishes were astounding without the straight lines added to the overall finish of this Riad.
The staff here could not do enough for you and it was very clean.
Jeromi the owner was a calm man who you could tell loved his Riad and was passionate about how he fell in love with the place explaining that he had no experience of renovation however found the right people to create this stunning Riad that I will be overwhelmed and excited about going back to.
We also enjoyed a few stories that Jeromi told us about Fes on top of the Riad. A real interesting and warm man.
So in summary I would say that this Riad if anyone stayed here they would certainly not be disappointed.
If I spelt your name wrong Jeromi please accept my apologies.

One of the best experiences in our 3 weeks travelling in Morroco! It is an authentic palace, very close to the medina. Extra bonus that were important to us: pool (so refreshing) and private parking.
I strongly recommend Riad Layalina Fez! It will not disappoint!

Riad Layalina was a fantastic place to stay in Fes, we stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. The location of the Riad is fantastic, very close to the main streets into the medina and also a close walk to Gare Routiere, the main bus station. We had dinner at the Riad one night which was delicious and also enjoyed the breakfast put on each morning. It was very refreshing to have a swim in the pool after a hot day walking through the medina. This is a beautiful Riad and we highly recommend staying if you are travelling to Fes, the staff are very helpful and created a wonderful stay for us in Fes!

This was by far one of the best experiences I ever had while traveling in terms of customer service. The staff served us with such kindness and generousity that we thought it was too good to be true. Strongly recommend the place.

Jerome and his staff were EXCELLENT! Not only did they greet us with a smile when we arrived, he woke up early to serve us breakfast at 3:45am to make sure we were hydrated and fed before our early flight. The Riad is beautiful and peaceful. It's amazingly close to the Fes Medina... most of the shops will deliver to the Riad free of charge (so you don't have to carry your packages!). Jermone took care of all of our needs...
