Delightful small Riad on edge of Meknes Medina. Owners Simon and Mouna make you very welcome and Mouna cooks delicious Moroccan food. Very convenient location for exploring Meknes on foot. Beautiful main room full of colourful tiles and stucco plasterwork. Extensive roof terrace - interesting in early evening as the birds fly around, including storks. If you are lucky, you... More

My partner and I stayed with Simon and Mouna in their stunning riad for four wonderful days in November 2014. I still think of our time there on a regular basis. Meknes is a great wee city but the Riad Lahboul made it heavenly. I don't think I can add anything constructive to the reviews below, just believe them! Simon... More

A friendly wave caught our attention as we drive slowly along the imposing wall of the medina, looking for the landmark Mouna had mentioned. She was standing in a small portal, about the size of a normal door, that was dwarfed by the size of the massive wall surrounding it. "Hello, you must be exhausted, let me help you, come... More

We stayed three relaxing nights. We had dinners that were wonderfully prepared, more than we could eat. A very clean and well run B&B. The hosts are very fine people, we enjoyed their company very much. The terrace was an excellent place to relax after wandering the medina. I would have given five stars, but for two reasons I did...

Simon and Mouna and their lovely children were the perfect hosts! I felt like a treasured friend while my husband and I stayed at the Riad. The Riad is delightful, comfortable, beautiful, a visual treat. Mouna's cooking was wonderful, their staff great. The highlight was a shared musical experience that my husband took part in. Or maybe it was playing... More

It was my birthday treat and this riad was the perfect setting for me to play at being a sultana for the night! We chose the family room, it is really beautiful and peaceful. Mouna's cooking was fabulous and authentic. Selima's birthday cake was such a surprise and just perfect (how did you know that I love chocolate?) Simon and... More

Browsing through all the fantastic reviews i'm wondering what i can say that is not already said. The personal effort that Simon and Mouna put into this lovely place is fascinating, and i hope they never get bored of this. We were welcomed into the family for our short stay, celebrated our daughters' birthdays together, enjoyed their wonderfully home cooked... More

A beautiful building with many original features which has been renovated and beautifully furnished by SImon and Mouna. It is easy to find in the medina once you get to the right part of Meknes! Parking is available on the street nearby - the public car park has been undergoing refurbishment for a long time! We were made to feel... More

We stayed at Riad Lahboul in mid-May. It was one of three riads/dars that we stayed in during our vacation in Morocco - the others were in Fes and Tangier. While they were all excellent, Riad Lahboul was our favorite. We arrived after a couple of intense days at the medina in Fes and immediately upon arrival we felt relaxed,... More

Riad Lahboul was a little piece of paradise, after a long train journey from Marrakech and 43 degree heat. Simon and Mouna were so welcoming and made us feel instantly at home. The Riad is beautifully and authentically decorated, spotlessly clean and cosy. Simon helped sort out a trip to Moulay Idris and Volubilis with a guide they use called... More
