Meknes is a wonderful city in Northern Morocco. We stayed in a charming, small "riad" called Riad Bahia. The riad is operated by a young couple-- Bouchra and Abdul. The Riad is gorgeous-- a restored old home right in the middle of the Medina. You are surrounded by the ancient buildings of the Meknes Medina. The owner's take care of you at every step. They cook. They provide guide services around the city. And their hotel is beautiful. Only 7 rooms. We stayed on the top floor. Walk outside and you have a lovely view of the city from the rooftop terrace. The meals are excellent-- very small restaurant- a home cooked feel to the dinners. No alcohol served due to the faith of the owners. This is a nice touch in that you can learn a lot about the Islam faith from both Bouchra and Abdul. They met us at the train station. And arranged for various activites in this city. meknes is often overlooed by European tourists so you can move easily through the Median with few hassles. You cannot drive a car tothe hotel because it's located in the winding streets of the Median. The prayer calls wake you at around 530am every day.. you are surrounded by Mosques. This is the real thing and I highly recommend this small hotel. We also took a day trip to Moulay Idriss and Volubolis Roman ruins-- fascintating stuff.
