    Riad Layalina is lovely and serene in the midst of the chaos of the medina. Morocco is still just opening up again after the covid year and i was the only guest. My room was beautiful and overlooked the courtyard. The terrace has incredible views of the city. My hosts treated me very graciously and helped me to navigate the area around the hotel. Kind people and a beautiful property!

    Had a great time staying at this riad. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful with all our requests, food, directions, tours, shopping - you name it! The space was clean, comfortable and really had the Moroccan charm we were hoping for. It's only steps away from the medina near the car park which made it really easy to find. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and the ladies make everything fresh as soon as you're seated. This was by far the best place we stayed in Morocco. I would definitely stay here again!

    Beautiful place in a great location with parking. Spotlessly clean. They met us with fruit and tea upon check in. The courtyard and the rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. The restroom is not inside the room, it’s across the hallway. I think it’s supposed to be a private bathroom but not sure as there were people using it when we first arrived. Make sure you make not of where the light switches are if you’re walking around at night, the hallways are very dark but there are switches on every floor and hallway. Great views from the upstairs patios. We booked a last minute tour through the riad and they were very helpful. The guide was nice, very soft spoken so a bit hard to hear in the loud Medina. Got some history and the usual stops to hear sales pitches but not too much pressure from the vendors. The riad kept our bags after check out and had a taxi to the airport after the tour. Would definitely stay again!

    The hotel located right inside the Medina of Fes, and has its own parking lot which is really convenient for self-driving travelers, the room is great and food is amazing too.

    Had a fabulous 2 night stay at Riad Layalina. Very close to the Medina and other main tourist sights. Room itself was lovely, very traditional and the view from the rooftop terrace is beautiful. The service was great, and nothing was too much trouble, highly recommend.

    Location is at entrance to big parking area just outside an entrance to the Fes medina. The welcome food and breakfast were delicious. Our suite was very nice. The main common area is beautiful. Only downsides were some noise from road and parking lot and that the parking lot doesn't provide same ambience as staying inside the walls of old Fes.
