“Friendly staff, good location, pretty room”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We had a pretty twin room, which had a double and single bed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did eat in the riad one night as they have a restaurant. The food was nice but at 390 dirhams for two people it was much more expensive than eating other places in the medina and was nice but not above average to justify the extra cost.

We stayed two nights in Riad Bahia and loved it - for many reasons but largely because of the staff - they are the heart and sould of the hotel. They could not have done more to make us feel at home. As they said: 'Chez nous vous etes chez vous' (With us you are at home) and it really felt like that. These are people who put a lot of time and effort to make everything look as if it should be so - I know how much effort 'effortless' actually takes and Riad Bahia achieves it. The attention to detail is also worth mentioning - rooms are beautifully appointed and a joy to stay in. The central courtyard is a haven of peace after a busy day in the medina. We'll return to Meknes and this is my absolute first choice to stay.

Room Tip: Worth paying a little more for a larger room, though the smaller rooms are exceptional value.

Stayed for 2 nights on March 2012, the room we got is on the roof terrace, 350Dh per night, included breakfast, free wifi. The light breakfast was pretty good. Very nice decorate, cleanliness - fair/clean, family/staff are smile at the time. Best place in Meknes!

This family run riad is fantastic. I stuffed up our booking and arrived a week late, but they made us feel welcome, and found a room for us. No mention of any extra fee! Would absolutely stay there again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for two nights in November 2012 as the second place on a whistlestop tour of Morrocco. We arrived from Rabat and were dropped off in the main square, alive with donkeys, snake charmers and medicine men trying to sell camel heads, ostrich eggs and dead lizards to passers by for God knows what purpose. We called the Riad and were told to wait by one of the small city gates and we would be picked up. Sure enough, our host arrived a few minutes later and we were led on foot through the vast labarynth of alleyways that made up Mekne's souks.

As the small wooden door, set inside a big wooden door, opened Ryad Bahia looked cosy and homely. Terracotta floors, whitewashed walls and a winding staircase led into the sky. Small it was not however, it was a TARDIS opening up into a large internal courtyard, with tables and chairs where we would have two wonderful breakfasts and a beautiful home cooked meal.

The room was up a flight of stairs. Very traditional decoration, simple, yet colourful, with a four poster bed, berber rug and a clay fireplace. Wandering round it was clear to see that although it was a guesthouse, it was a family home as well, which guests were allowed to wander about as they pleased.

If you stay here you must ask if they will cook for you. The tagines were delicious; the breakfasts were an array of different pancakes, breads, jams, cheeses, honey and olives; all washed down with fresh mint tea.

If ever I return to Morrocco, I will come back here

We stayed for three nights as our base for travel to Volubilis and Fes. It was so nice to come back to this riad each night as the owner, Bouchra greeted us, made sure our day went well, and made arrangements with our driver for our tours. We felt so at home. The rooms are beautifully decorated, there were lots of living and outdoor areas for relaxing throughout the riad, and the rooftop had amazing views of the mosque as the sun was rising and setting each day, especially during the call to prayers. My daughter's favorite breakfast item was sfinge, Moroccan donuts, and Bouchra made sure she had them daily.
The location of this riad within the Medina was excellent, with some of the best quality shops of handmade goods nearby. We enjoyed the people in Meknes
Be sure to try the local hamman.

Room Tip: We had five and the family room on the top floor was perfect.

Very easy to find (signs direct you toward it from the back of the main square and also are scattered about in the medina itself) this family run riad is clean, very nicely decorated and impressively large with many sitting areas sprawling around the inside and roof.

The family who run the riad were very friendly and helpful
