We found this riad by happenstance. The other place we were going to stay in (Riad Laayoun) had no rooms available. However, we were able to sneak a peek inside, just to get an idea of what to expect with the riads. Mind you the outside of the riad gives you absolutely no clue as to what it's like on the inside. A local teenager had guided us to the first riad, but when we found out there was no vacancy, he took us to the Riad Layali. From the moment we stepped in, we new were sold on it. The courtyard was absolutely gorgeous and much bigger and lavish than the first. The friendly host showed us to the room at the very top of the riad. The decorations were authentic Moroccan and the room was more "hooked up" than any other hotel we had stayed in thus far. Satellite cable tv, modern bathroom, dvd player and AC. It was a haven for two weary travelers coming from the high atlas countryside with no amenities. The pool was more like a large jacuzzi, but who cares? Our room is only 500 dirham a night and is much nicer and less expensive than the so-called "4 star" hotel (Menzeh Zalagh) I stayed at in the new part of Fes. As far as getting there, it's a quick block or so from the big fountain round-a-bout through the street "RIYAD SHEHERAZADE" Maison d'hotes Batha-Douh. Good luck!
