We greatly enjoyed our three nights in this Riad. Though our room was on the ground floor, this was not an issue - but rooms higher in the building might be preferable. There is plenty of space to relax and the roof has a delightful sort of belvedere from which you can see the snowy Atlas. The staff are friendly... More

Perfectly situated in the heart of Medina, we have arranged the airport pick up service and so glad that we did as google map did not show the exact locations of the Riad.

Like most riads all is hidden away until you enter the door. Then you are amazed by the intricate decor. We were given a very warm welcome On the first night we are in the road and the food was excellent and very good. The wine was also reasonable and of excellent quality. Breakfast was very good too

I visited Morocco for 2 days with my husband for a Romantic break. Unfortunately our room was double booked and we were put into a nearby riad for night 1. We were compensated with a sincere apology, some wonderful Moroccan canapes and a bottle of champagne - laid out beautifully on the terrace - so we really could not grumble.... More

Riad was nice and good but the best part was the super friendly staff! They made us feel like we are one big family with them. Good center location to see the city. The room was a bit dark for us though.

We could not have been happier with our stay at Riad Ilayka. The owner Nadia is warm and welcoming and so careful, protective and considerate of her guests.

On our arrival from the airport we booked a transfer through the Riad - our driver was waiting on arrival (always a positive start!) and we were swiftly taken along a short journey towards the Riad.
