Extremely happy with our stay at Riad Alya. We were two single female travellers who booked two nights in Sept 2021. The Riad is absolutely stunning, the room we stayed in - Marrakesh suite, was spacious with very beautiful decor. The Riad also looked new and located in a walkable distance from the medina but still in a quiet area. The staff were warm, and accommodating. Huge thank you to Hossein for making our stay enjoyable and to the manager who was also very kind and warm.

To start with, Ryad Alya is undoubtedly beautiful! Specially the little central square which is also used as breakfast area - it is in blue and white with splashes of red/brown color and it has many plants and orange trees with sparrows flying around. On te top of the Ryad there is a nice cosy terrase with a great view. We also liked our suite ("Meknes") with its comfy bed, the ceiling that looked like a piece of art, separate room for clothes and the huge bathtub! The Ryad is so marvelous, cool and gives such a feeling of safety that sometimes we even didn't feel like going out and exploring Fes! Special compliments to the staff! Very nice and friendly people, and the housekeeping lady was doing a great job! Also the breakfasts fresh and tasty, and they were served to us quickly. The only reason why I gave 4* instead of 5* was the fact that we would have to pay for coffee (1.5 euros per cup) in our suite if we wanted to drink it. As a person who first studied Hotel Management and then worked/staied in various hotels around the world, I felt quite embarrassed when I saw the pricetag on the coffee machine in the suite. However, I would still visit Ryad Alya again and I would happily give them 5* next time if they change their coffee-in-the-suite policy.

My mom and I stayed at Ryad Alya in June, our first time in Morocco, and were so beyond impressed by the hospitality, kindness, sumptuousness, and beauty of Ryad Alya. The entire staff is to be commended for their attentiveness in making our five night stay perfect. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the roof, the table was covered in delicious, fresh, local foods and in the evenings an oud musician serenaded us. Truly magical. We stayed in the Rabat suite which, along with the rest of the Ryad, was stunningly ornate, from the carved wood ceiling and closet, the huge bed, the sitting area, and bathroom. The courtyard is incredible. But above all, the staff is the true highlight. Every question, concern, excursion was thoughtfully and helpfully answered and prepared, they eased my mom into trying the hammam, another highlight. The entire place, from the service to the building is impeccable, and I am ready to return. My best wishes go to the staff of Ryad Alya, I hope to see you all soon!

What a fantastic trip. The location was really Nice, in the near neighbourhood of the Médina, but quiet. The staff was so helpfull, friendly, sweet and their english was very good. When we arrived we immediately feld home, because of the most friendly welcome with mint tea and fresh Made marrocan cookies. Excellent breakfast, all fresh, custom made and various. Very relaxing threatment in the hamam with relaxing massage! They arranged everything for our stay, excursions, transfers, everything was hosted perfectly. The only thing I can recommend the accomodation to do is upgrade their beautiful rooftop with a great view, for relaxation moments, now there are only sitting chears, but a relax bed would-be so Nice to start or end the day ( just a tip to make the experience even better!) But we had a wonderful stay and would be definately going back! thank you all for everything!

We felt at home in this cozy and beautiful Riad. Beds were comfy, the breakfast well served and freshly prepared, the spa was also great. The staff is very friendly and helpful with orientations and for booking transfers and guides. We visited some touristic places around Fez, but we were always saying "our Riad is more beautiful than this". They really have a precious architecture here...
