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

I have just returned from an amazing trip to Morocco. The first couple of days I stayed in Riad Layla in the Royal Suite ( I saw quite a few of the other rooms in passing and they were all nice), I did a lot of research into hotels and this was one of the best I found for my price range and Im so glad I chose Riad Layla as a place to stay. Before I even arrived at the hotel I spoke to Mohamed who gave me advise on getting a taxi and then spoke to the driver to direct him in as its a bit of a maze in Fez (Negotiated 150 MAD). on arrival Mohamed was great with a warm welcome and he took me to my room and showed me how everything worked. The room was gorgeous and the whole place, my room and the public areas,were impeccably clean the whole time. Once you've got your bearings the Riad is easy to find and there are lots of places close by shops, banks, taxi stand, restaurants, the Medina and Blue Gate. There is a terrace that serves meals, I did not eat there but I went up in the morning and in the evening for the beautiful views, the sunset was amazing and it had panoramic amazing views of the city. I want to say the best part about staying at this Riad was Mohamed.When you arrived back after a day out he always made you feel welcome had some conversation, he knew everything about the area and was so helpful. Being a Training Manager for a cruise line I saw outstanding hospitality from him, I observed him withe the other guests and he was truly on a different level he is amazing. He used to run up and down the stairs a million times a day. If someone called his name you would here tak tak tak Mohamed running to them and the way he spoke so kind, genuine and patient nothing was ever to much for him and he always seemed happy to help. So to sum it up if you are thinking of booking this place go ahead no issues here at all with the accommodation or staff. Thank you Riad Layla for a great stress free stay!

Amazing team made us feel very welcome and at home during our first visit to Fes. Very fast and responsive from initial booking to arranging transfers and reservations for us. Perfect terrace breakfast with view of the Fes Medina! 5/5 rating well deserved, keep up the great work! Location is great for exploring Fes, close to the famous Blue Gate.
