Loved this riad - the owners are obviously very proud of their previous family home and rightly so. They are very hands on and happy to accomodate all requests - they never got fed up with our endless requests for Moroccan tea and the delicious homemade pastries. We loved the fabulous homemade tradional meals that welcomed us after a long... More

This is a beautiful riad close to the medina of Fes. The rooms are large and clean and the decoration is wonderful without being cluttered. The staff are friendly and the owner Malika is helpful at all times. There is a good roof terrace to enjoy the sunshine. Recommended and good value for money.

One of the finest riads in Morocco and I've stayed in many of them. The first floor suites in particular are lovely. Recommended. Close to the Medina and with parking available about 50 metres away. Fantastic roof terrace with view to the mountains which is perfect for catching the sun.

We were two couples travelling Morroco and spent four nights at Layali 21st-24th Sept. This palatial riad is tucked away in a narrow street not far from the Blue Gate.

An amazing Riad in a great location. The Riad is a lovely old building in the Medina and is reached along narrow pathways between the buildings. As always, there is an entrance door in the wall which leads into a beautiful courtyard. We had an amazing large room with en-suite bathroom and a rooftop area with views over Fes. The... More
