We liked everything, there is nothing not to like!
We felt right at home, and I mean this literally because we were treated like family. This is the nicest and most authentic riad we have stayed at in Morocco. Originally we were going to stay for only 1 night but the hospitality we received there made us book another night at this riad. Our only wish was that we could have stayed longer. The staff at the riad were so welcoming, caring and genuine. The atmosphere and architecture (especially in the courtyard) was beyond our expectations - a true masterpiece.
It was past 8:30pm when we arrived there. Our driver called the hotel and we were greeted by Zuhir, a friendly staff member who took care of us from the moment we arrived until we left. Mr. Cohen, the manager of the riad was kind enough to always check up on us and ensure that we were taken care of and that we were happy with our room. We also met Mr. Khalid, the owner of the hotel, who personally sat down with every one of the guests staying at the time to introduce himself and engage in fine conversation.
If you are planning a trip to Fes, please stay at this riad, you will not be disappointed. I also recommend travelers to have all of your meals here like we did, because the food is out of this world! They are true culinary experts of Moroccan cuisine at Ryad Alya and the food along with the atmosphere has left such an impression on us.
Thank you Mr. Khalid, Mr. Cohen, Zuhir and the rest of the staff for making our stay in Fes a memory that we will cherish forever!
