This review is quite late. I booked a room in one of the riads within the Medina to get a genuine feel of the Old Town and I was not disappointed. Meknes Medina is a large maze and getting lost is part of the fun. The shop keepers were friendly especially to foreigners. I purchased traditional pottery from one of... More

Having our Riad based in the centre of the Medina was a huge bonus, we stepped outside our front door to the hustle and bustle of the Medina. Its was much more enjoyable (even though we were only in Meknes for one night) than Marrakesh. the traders were just as vocal and yet more pleasant to deal with.. no hard... More

A very authentic medina with snake charmers and entertainers. We could watch it all while sitting in the open cafe with a mint tea. The only negative was the pressure from pushy street sellers.

You'll find Meknes medina to be quieter and a little more peaceful than the ones in Marrakech and Fes, although it can be equally stressful because of the merchants that can and will annoy you in order to sell you something, but that's part of the game. A little tip: buying their beautiful handmade objects is a must, but remember... More

We stayed in Fes most of the time, it was incredible to go to Meknes and experience something less busy, more quiet and generally more relaxed. Maybe a snake charmer is cruel to animals, and you need to push him back so he doesn't force you to wearing a snake, but it's still more quiet than Medina in Fes!

Easy to find your way around in, and no one in your face all the time. An easy walk, considering the Riad El Ma is right in the centre of it.

Easy to get lost in but small enough to really not care. Whichever direction one always ended up outside the medina - which was also fascinating - finding the artisans quarters or a souk or the Place el Hedim (square) or Bab Mansour and the imperial palace.

I had the best time here shopping and bargaining with the owners. The selection is not the largest, but that was not so much a bad thing.

Vey vibrant and a good place to get some food for a snack or lunch. It is near the ramparts and some beautiful gates. Locals friendly-traffic crazy but that is Morocco.
