    We enjoyed our few days here greatly. The room was very spacious and was well stocked. The room was very unique and we really enjoyed the ambiance and feel it provided. The host was very courteous and escorted us from and to our transportation upon arrival and departure which was very helpful. The riad is located in a great location very close to the blue gate and offered a great location for us to enjoy the Fes medina. We took a walking tour by the recommendation with the host and were happy with that as well. The breakfasts were amazing and rooftop and courtyard were a great location for meals. I would definitely recommend.

    This was a great riad to stay in Fes. The room was big and overlooked on courtyeard. The view from terrace was awesome and breakfast is served that. The breakfast itself was very hearty and included local stuff and coffee. The people at reception were super helpful and one of them came out to pick me up where my car had left me. The riad also has hamam which looked pricey so I didn't tried it. The location is great, close to fountain square and the famous gates. Getting to medina main street just takes few minutes of walk.

    Nice Riad

    Riad Lyla was very comfortable and clean. Josef made our stay very comfortable. He was there to take care of our every need. Although the Riad is beautiful and clean, the bathroom had a musty/mildewy smell especially after a shower so we opened all the windows in the bathroom overnight to try to eliminate the odor but it did not work. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay at Riad Lyla!

    Unfortunately we didn't get to fully enjoy the beauty and comfort of this Riad as we arrived late in Fes and left super early the next morning. What we did enjoy was the spacious room with great views of the Riad courtyard and a big, clean bathroom with all the amenities. Was a little tricky to find - but great location, super close to the Medina entrance.

    Riad is good, referrals are not good.

    Pluses: very cool room and building, amazing rooftop view, delicious breakfast. Not so good: guide (Idriss) and driver provided by the Riad were not trustworthy. Guided walking tour didn't provide a lot of information, more like going from vendor to vendor to sell you stuff. Restaurant he brought us to was also expensive and we didn't seem to have a choice as he just handed us to the waiter and went off to somewhere better I assume. While the owner of the Riad seems nice, because of the people she referred to us, the rating is lowered. I would come here again if not use the extra 'service' provided by the Riad.

    A beautiful restored mansion.

    Riad Layla is a beautiful boutique hotel. Very clean and recently renovated. It is an authentic riad. A mansion with an inner courtyard. The breakfast was served up in the roof balcony overlooking the Medina, the old wall and modern Fés. For anyone trying to find the hotel, its entrance is very close to Bhata Square. The locals are very nice and willing to help tourists finding restaurants and points of interest.

    Nice Riad inside the oldest Madina in Morocco. We were only there 1 night but we were very pleased with the room. It was very nice with a double bed for my husband and I and 2 twin beds for our daughters. The bathroom was fine but because the building is really old, there is a bad odor from the pipes if you don't close the drains (the staff told us about it so it wasn't a problem). Just don't expect modern and you'll be pleased. We arranged a nice dinner with the Riad which was very good. It was a started, a main and dessert for 15Euro per person. Glad we did that because we didn't feel like going out to find a restaurant after traveling 8 hours by car from the desert that day. Breakfast was nice, typical Moroccan style with mostly breads, jams, and a yogurt. Coffee and juice. It was served on the rooftop terrance, but in January, we would have been more comfortable in the lobby seating area where we had dinner the night before. It was too cold outside in the morning. I would recommend this place.
