Ideally situated on the edge of the Medina, the Lahboul area has both the atmosphere of the medina as well as its own architectural style and lovely botanical gardens.

We stayed here one night and had the place to ourselves. Staff were accommodating, friendly, available, and most helpful: they welcomed us with mint tea, cookies, and a solid briefing on what to see, and on check-out they helped us carry our bags to a taxi. The downstairs welcome area of the riad was quite pretty (although dark), the terrace upstairs was lovely, the beds were comfortable, and the Wi-Fi was good. However, as other reviews have mentioned, some parts of the riad looked more worn out, and it does show that the owners hadn't been onsite as much. Some of the fixtures and the bathrooms in particular could use some updating, although everything was clean. It was also nice to explore Meknes after the hustle and bustle of Fes, and we went to a couple of nice family-run restaurants nearby too. Breakfast was excellent as well and in beautiful surroundings, and check-out was a breeze. Overall, while some aspects of the riad could be made better with more attention, we felt welcomed and this was a good place to stay for a night.

Located next to the Medina walls, it is one of those places that are a treasure hidden behind an unassuming exterior. The place is owned by a British couple who live next door but no longer manage it. The dining/greeting area is beautiful and a pleasure to drink tea and eat cookies in when you arrive. Our room was small but very adequate. The Terraces on the next floor up are a great place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Since it was winter a heater was provided for our room. Breakfasts were large and loved the variety of fruit, eggs, breads, yogurt, pancakes, etc. Easy to get around by foot to the square and attractions in the town. Our host was very personable, spoke excellent English and available at all times.

We stayed 2 nights in Meknès in early January, which seems surprisingly unvisited by many tourists, given how friendly and pleasant a town it is. (And taxi drivers even use the meter, without asking!) Riad Lahboul is like everything you would like a riad to be - exotic-looking comfortable rooms, a large dining room downstairs, and a rooftop terrace overlooking the Lahboul Gardens (which are currently under reconstruction). Meals are available by request, and judging by our experience are delicious! (Non-stayers can come just for dinner, at least in high season.) Given it was the quiet season, we had the run of the place to ourselves. But it was easy to imagine it as a cool and quiet haven during hotter months. Just a quick note on how to get there. The riad gives copious instructions for arrival. It's hard to describe what it's like, but the riad is just inside the medina wall, opposite Lahboul Gardens. From the gardens side, you enter through a small archway (pedestrians only), go ahead a short distance down an narrow overhung alleyway, and turn left on a similar alleyway, and knock on the front door. (Very Arabian Nights!) Coming from the main road from the souk and main square, it's down the hill a little to the busy T-intersection and you enter one of 2 pedestrian alleyways near a petit taxi stand, which lead down to the riad. It sounds complicated, but once you've been there, it's easy to find. Our room was cosy and comfortable, and windows in both bedroom and en suite opened to the side alley below, so we could let fresh air in and steam out from the shower (which also has a extractor fan). It's wonderfully quiet at night. I've included several photos showing the decorations, as it gives an idea of the care and time taken by the owners to restore this splendid old riad to its former glory - lots of little details that make you feel like you're on a proper holiday. The owners weren't around during our visit, but we were well looked after by two friendly Berber guys (sorry, have forgotten your names!). We also arranged an excellent day trip to Volubilis through them. I notice that a recent TA post mentions rooms being musty, old and a bit run-down - I think they must be thinking of a different place, as that certainly does not apply to what we experienced. On the contrary, we found the room very comfortable, clean and fresh, the dining room a feast for the eyes and the overall decor fascinating and exotic. Highly recommended, we'd stay again there anytime.

Cheap Riad that has friendly staff, even though run down. Rooms are a bit musty and old but probably good for student Travellers. My son liked the place, but wife did not. She thought it was like her great grandmothers place where everything was a century old. Toilets leaked, heard dogs barking all night, but not a problem if you have a really good set of earplugs. Not real convenient to restaurants, but Meknes doesn’t have many good ones anyway.

Lovely riad, very welcoming. Three of us stayed in a large family room (a couple and our adult daughter) for four nights and had a wonderful time. We especially enjoyed the multiple terraces, the space heaters in the bedroom and at breakfast to take off the morning chill in December, the fast internet, very nice shower, comfortable beds, and the warm greetings and hospitality throughout our stay. It was fun to explore the town and the surrounding area. Hassan arranged a car and driver for a day trip to the Roman ruins of Volubilis and to the city of Fes. The car was a very comfortable van with air conditioning and the route meant that we saw lovely scenery on the way and a gorgeous sunset on the way back. It felt like coming home to be back in Meknes and we were glad we had arranged a day trip rather than having to move between Fes and Meknes. Breakfast was served in a pretty setting and the variety in eggs, fruit salad and breads was much appreciated. The rooftop was a series of terraces, each with a table and chairs. We ate snacks out there, or lounged on the sofas and lounge chairs. We would be happy to return and stay here again.
