Review of Riad Meknes, Morocco

At the heart of the old imperial city of Meknes, you will discover the ruins of Ksar Chaachaa (the big palace) converted into a delightful guesthouse that showcases the best of traditional Moroccan architecture: Riad Meknes.

The Riad Meknes is part of the 17-century residence of Moulay Ismail, who made Meknes the country’s capital.

There are just six rooms, each individually decorated to showcase different architectural styles and Moroccan décor. There’s a large air-conditionned living room with an excellent view on the gardens. The ground floor has also an excellent restaurant and a small lunge pool.

To get to Riad Meknes, follow the signs from Rue Sidi Nedjaror Bab er-Rih.
