Ismail Moulay reportedly fathered 888 children, some of them in this building, which is a small, beautiful, old palace in a perfect location in Meknes. We spent one night, which was all we needed to see the highlights of the city and to visit nearby Volubilis. The food was about the best Moroccan meals we had on our whole trip,... More

On entering the hotel we were impressed, especially the rooms. We were the only ones staying which felt strange. The hotel is really catered to groups of day trippers having lunch.The bathtub in my room leaked when showering, I brought this to the attention of the staff but they seemed unmoved.

This guest house which was once a royal residence has a very Moroccan atmosphere and is located in the quiet alleyways of the old Medina in Meknes. We loved the very faithfully restored rooms and suites. Breakfast and dinner were excellent with local dishes served in the lovely courtyard. A small rooftop pool was refreshing after a long day in... More

A lovely location and a beauttiful courtyard but we found the decor in the rooms overpowering and old fashioned, it definitely needs an uplift. The breakfastb was extremely basic, not palais standard.

This Riad is located in the heart of the old Medina part of Meknes call Dar el Kabir. Quaint rooms but less offthe creature comforts of a hotel. The building and rooms are a site to see bu remember its 400 years old. Food service is not what you expect out of a restaurant but it's incredible in taste.

Now if they would just improve their service (slow and unhelpful) and put wifi in the rooms, this hotel could easily be a 5-star. The rooms were magnifIcent and full of character, the breakfast and dinner were good albeit slow, and the wifi was only available in the lobby. All in all, definitely worth it for the rooms, but don't... More

We chose this Riad because of its look and decoration. It's room looks like an ancient palace in "One thousands and one nights", rich and lavishly decorated in traditional morocco style. Room is very spacious (we have one of the suite) and with huge bathroom and big tab. But it uses a water heater in the bath room. It quickly... More

Nice riad. Beautifully styled. Good service and a very nice breakfast. Location is fine and nice and quiet. Room was very spacious. Only downside is that the hot water ran out pretty quickly.
