I stayed at this hotel with some apprehension because of the numerous negative reviews on TripAdvisor. All in all, however, it was fine. From the outside it looks larger, more modern, and more western than any of the other three hotels where we stayed in Morocco. It has a nice garden and swimming pool, large, bright rooms with spacious bathrooms, bigger TVs, a restaurant, etc. Continental food in the restaurant was quite good. But I can see where the negative reviews come from: when you look closer, the place is definitely frayed around the edges. E.g., locking mechanisms on the bathroom doors were missing; the internet worked well the first day but stopped working on the second day (we were able to get a connection only by going out in the garden); the restaurant was supposed to be open for lunch but nobody was there. The main negative was the service: at all times I felt that the personnel was focused exclusively on milking money out of guests—not at all on serving them. They were curt and not very helpful, but were always trying to sell you something or get a tip out of you. Still, if you’re tired of cramped rooms or traditional food that your stomach can’t deal with, this hotel will provide you with a reasonably comfortable, more “western” stay that might be just what you need at some point in your Moroccan stay. I would consider staying here again.

Just returned from Morroco this July and there wasnt too much information on the web about this hotel apart from Tripadvisor.
A family memebr was getting married in Meknes, and the brides family have a home there, so they reccomended Zaki,
We went as a group of 20-30 people and we had a lot of fun.
The pool is wonderful, there are numerous bars and clubs in the hotel all far away from rooms so you dont even hear the music. The decor is amazing.
the service however isnt the best, it became a little frustrating at times especially trying to get any more than 2 towels day.
They DO NOT GIVE YOU towels for the pool so you'll have to take 1 from the room however they do not replace this until the next day, so we had to sneak in som extra towels whilst the ladies werent looking.
However they are very friendly, giving hugs and quite chatty, even though my french is passable.
I really didnt eat at the hotel but a lot of my friends ate the chicken sandwich which came with fries and that was about 70 dirhams
the local bear- SPECIAL- was great that was also 70 dirhams
all in all Meknes was quite cheap our Dollar went a long way.
Because the hotel has numerous bars and a big club- it gets quite a crowd everynight so you can dance to the cheesy music in the clubs after a few drinks.
I dont think id go to meknes again as there wasnt to much to do but if i did I would stay there again:-)

This hotel has wonderfull moorish decoration and a lovely garden with pool. The rooms are clean and spacious and have a terrace as well. The food for a hotel is above average, served in a beautiful dining room.
I can highly recommend this hotel.

I had seen the Hotel Zaki several times while driving through Meknes. It's easily located on one of the main streets going into the city from the interstate. The lobby is beautifully done in traditional Moroccan style. I was greeted with smiles from everyone including the guy who carried my bags up to the room. The restaurant was good, but the menu was a little short. Didn't include a lot of the normal Moroccan food. But it was well prepared and well presented. The room was very light and airy. I love the white tile floors because it makes the entire room look much lighter. The only thing about the room I could fault was the door itself. I had a hard time getting it to open and close. The bathroom was spotless and the shower worked without a hitch. The price was reasonable as when I was there they were having a promotional 30% discount. Most of the other clients at the hotel were groups of English and Spanish tourists coming through Meknes.
