I stayed here on a family holiday with my mum and brother in November 2015. Although it has taken quite a while to write this review, this is absolutely no reflection on Riad Layla which was our first experience of staying in a hotel in Morocco. It is a superb place to stay with really kind and friendly staff. The... More

We arrived to the riad by car and were already given some directions by the staff in advance and then called them for showing us a parking when we arrived at place Batha. This worked very well, and the Riad is rather conveniently located for going there by car, not too far from the parking and Place Batha is dead... More

My stay at Riad Layla was so amazing. We stayed in the Royal suit which had a mezzanine level (partner is 6'2 and it was plenty tall enough for him) and an amazing bathroom. The riad was beautiful with its traditional but modern interior and it's lovely terrace. It is situated out the outskirts of the medina which was nice,... More

We got the "royal" room, which is two floors and a spiral staircase. We ate dinner twice here and it was truly amazing. The chicken pastilla was the best meal I had in Morocco. The staff is very helpful and can make great recommendations.

Unfortunately this was our least favorite hotel on our trip in Morocco. While the rooms & bathrooms are no doubt very generous, the management is not very honest in dealing with its clients. We asked for directions to a restaurant of our own choice and were told that it's a very expensive restaurant, then suddenly the lady did not know... More

We stayed at Riad Layla with our two daughters (15 and 10 years old) for three wonderful nights in Fes. My wife and I are so glad we stayed here. The room was beautiful and well-prepared, and the Riad was comfortable and felt like home for the duration of our stay. The staff were incredibly kind, thoughtful, and helpful. Airport... More

We had three rooms at the Riad Layla for our adult family. We stayed in the Salma Suite (ground floor off the atrium with single beds), Mezzanine Double Room and the Alia Suite (near the rooftop, several flights up - not recommended if you have troubles with stairs). We stayed three nights, possibly one night more would have been good.... More

The moment you walk in the riad you are transported in time and deeply pushed into a Moroccan venue. The room was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom was breath-taking! The staff always welcoming and the views from the terrace just outstanding. We loved it!

Next time we visit Fes we would stay at Riad Layla once again. It's location is perfect, the rooms comfortable, the staff welcoming and helpful and all great value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Riad Layla enthrals you with a decor and ambiance reminiscent of the Arabian Nights. Riad Layla enchants you! The traditional building is constructed in Moorish style and was renovated in 3 years with much effort and love for the smallest details, just so that you could rent a riad that epitomises elegance. The building offers the comfort and service of a luxury hotel combined with the dreamy ambiance of a riad. The design combines traditional Moroccan architecture and craftsmanship with modern comfort. At the centre of the riad is a patio with a fountain and its pool. Cedar wood, mosaic (zellig) and stucco are witnesses of the elegance of this former residence. The salon, the patio and the beautiful roof terraces with a breathtaking view of the entire Fez medina offer a place to read, sun-bathe and relax. Breakfast and dinner are served on the roof terrace during summer. Come and enjoy the atmosphere of Riad Layla for your Morocco holidays ... more   less
