“Oase in the middle of meknes...”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

Excellent service, the owners and the staff are friendly and make you feel at home. Lovely food in nice environnement...and dont miss having breakfast at the roof terrasse. It is a really quiet refuge in the middle of a busy Medina.

The riad is very conveniently located; in the Medina. It was a very pleasant stay and the place is well maintained. The dinner at the riad was excellent, they were very willing to adapt to our needs as vegetarians. Leila was very helpful with information on getting around Meknes, what to see and such.

The riad is is the main square of the ancient city. The ambiance is definitely 'old world'. Set in a beautifully old restored Moroccan house with antique furniture, mosaic tiles a lovely roof terrace with a small swimming pool. The restaurant serves good Morrocan cuisine and also has alcohol available..something not always available lie in Morrocan restaurants.

Very warm welcome by the friendly staff. Beautiful restoration of the riad makes you feel at home. Nice comfy room with an en-suite bathroom. (If you are looking for a bathroom which gives you absolute privacy from you co-traveler - this is not your place). Our room did not have an outside window, only one to the common courtyard area, and from what I could tell most rooms don't.
Te riad features a very nice roof terrace with a small plunge pool. If the weather allows they serve dinner on that terrace. We did not eat dinner here, but regretted it.... The breakfast was nice.
Very good value for the price. Would definitely stay here again! The location is absolutely unbeatable - right between all the important sights and still quiet and nice!

This was a wonderful first stop and introduction to ou Moroccan adventure, alow key very comfortable and pleasant riad just steps from the medina. An attractive room, helpful and accomodating staff and an excellent tajine accompanied by some Meknes red. Highly recommended.

Wow! You're not in Kansas anymore. An absolutely gorgeous riad with ornate mosaics, designs, and carvings where you are treated to real Moroccan hospitality by a wonderful staff. I could not believe our room: stained-glass windows, a canopy bed, furniture and decorations like something from Arabian Nights but with TV, air conditioning, and (hidden) mini-fridge. A little too dark, but very atmospheric. The main courtyard has beautiful flowered brocade couches and another courtyard has a lovely tile swimming pool. This is where Bono stayed when he recorded his latest album and the Queen of Jordan stayed to visit him. You will feel as special as a queen or a rock star when you stay here, too.

Room Tip: Ours was #2 but any downstairs on the courtyard are the best.
