Had a great time here, staying another night. AC works well, nice big room. Not the greatest Terrace I've been to but it works! Staff is quite friendly and hard working. All in all 4/5 Meknes is beautiful, I suggest asking the staff to set up a tour of Volubilis. Should be no more than 350 dirham. Worth every penny,...

Stayed here for just a night in July, great experience. Location easy to find from Bab Mansour (use the signs, not GoogleMaps, which will take you the longer way) with a lovely courtyard area to relax in. We had dinner here and it was one of THE BEST we had in Morocco. One of us found one of the beds...

Riad Zahraa Al Ismailia is a pearl in the heart of the Meknes Medina, very easy to locate from Bab Mansour and the main square. The rooms are clean and quiet, the personnel is very polite and careful. The breakfast was delicious and on the day we had to checkout quite early in the morning, they served it earlier than...

Easily accessible from the medina, this riad is a great example of traditional Moroccan housing.The courtyard with stunning doors, scalloped arches and intricate carved touches is made brighter with a spattering of colourful plants.There are 3 floors here and a terrace with wonderful views. The room itself was clean, had all the amenities one would want except a towel. Easily...

Nice stay. Beautiful riad with some original features such as some of the doors and ceiling. Our room was spacious, clean and bright. The roof terrace is nice and there are several mosques nearby so you can hear the call to prayer loud and clear. Breakfast is nice, and is table service. Easy to find in the medina as it...

Stunning riad in the middle of the medina so it is close to everything. Inside the courtyard the decor even includes some original doors which just add so much atmosphere to the place. Staff were friendly, offering welcome tea but most of them did not speak english which was a little difficult at times. Breakfast was fantastic, one of the...

My boyfriend and I had read very positive reviews of the riad so were really looking forward to our stay there. Our room was a little shabby, the shower broke, as did the loo seat, but the shower was fixed quickly and we were very happy with the room considering the price we were paying. The roof terrace also has...

Nice room with good bathroom. Very good considering the price (I paid 15 euro's + tax for a single room). Rooms are nicely decorated, and there is a good hot shower. Right in the heart of the medina, and close to everything.

The Ryad is one of the most beautiful in Meknes' Medina with nice, clean rooms, a beautiful entry hall and a great roof terrace! I can fully recommend this hostel, as staff were very friendly and food was good. Only points of criticism: It was very cold in the rooms and the shower didn't work very well.

Having been travelling around morocco for 3 weeks- i have stayed in varying qualites of riads. Riad Zaharaa is up there with the best, impressive from the outset- along with the warmest of welcomes.
