Meknes Hotels: Reviews of Hotels in Meknes

Meknes Hotels: Meknes Medina Hotels
There isn’t a great deal of hotels in the Medina and the majority tend to be cheap ones with basic facilities. However, there are a few Riads in the Ville Imperiale and the Medina that are up to the modern standards you’ll find in the Ville Nouvelle.
A living museum-cum-art gallery at the heart of the Medina, with zellij, stucco, and cedar wood brought back to life in the best of Meknessi tradition. Four well-appointed rooms and suites in earthy colours and lots of traditional furnishings and Berber rugs. Affable English-speaking owner on hand to negotiate the medina and day trips to Volubilis, Fez and the Middle Atlas.
A great find in the Medina, easily accessible from Place el Hedim. The decor is exceptional with original family heirlooms that add originality and fascination. A terrace with fantastic views over the Medina and a small in-house restaurant serving local cuisine.
The largest and the fancy older sister to the other riads in Meknes medina. Five exotic rooms and seven luxurious double bedrooms set around a sleek, marble-tiled courtyard and decked out in antique furniture and zellij bathrooms. Roof terrace with a restaurant giving superb views over the imperial city.
Delightful guesthouse amidst the ruins of Palais Ksar Chaachaa, the 17th-century imperial residence of Moulay Ismail. Six rooms individually decorated to represent different Moroccan styles and decors, a large air-conditionned living room, an excellent restaurant and a small lunge-pool.
Charming riad with a privileged location within the Medina, with Place el Hedim just a stone's throw away. The furnishings are a big draw, with fine antique Moroccan furniture and original Berber carpets creating an authentic feel throughout. Roof-top terrace with unbeatable views over the Medina and fine Moroccan cooking on offer. Knowledgeable Moroccan owners organise trips into the Medina, Volubilis and the Middle Atlas.
Stunning former 19th-century Palace brought back to life with original zellij, stucco and cedar wood doors and ceilings. Traditional aspect and earthy colour scheme continues throughout with a fine selection of Moroccan antiques and furniture making up the décor. Three rooms, eight suites, 4 patios, rambling roof-top terrace with swimming pool and solarium and a traditional hammam.
Meknes Hotels: Meknes Ville Nouvelle Hotels
Most of the Hotels in Meknes are concentrated in the Ville Nouvelle. The setting is ideal here with close proximity to the bars and restaurants and only a twenty-minute walk to the monuments and souks in the Medina.
A four-star rating, the Transatlantique is the luxury hotel in Meknes but unlikely to win any beauty contest. Look instead to the large grounds with lovely gardens, tennis courts, swimming pool, stunning views and terrace café and you'll enjoy your stay more.
An upmarket hotel located in the centre of Meknes, next to the train station. It has good facilities, with a decent bar, restaurant and a small swimming pool. The lobby area has a fresh and modern look, but the plain room décor betrays its 1970s origin.
Built in the 1930s, this grand old hotel carries its age well with friendly management and good service. The rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of character to go around, a peaceful patio and a terrace for al fresco breakfasts.
Located a few treks from the centre of town, this swanky modern hotel is the most luxurious complex in Meknes. Rooms are tastefully decorated in Moroccan style, with all the modern amenities you'd expect for the hefty price.Large and luxuriant park with a variety of excellent facilities.
