Had a confusing time paying, they stated they charge extra from Hostelworld because HW keeps their deposit and ended up charging us 315DH instead of 255DH... Was not super pleased. Hostel was also very difficult to find, but as a positive they did allow us to change our reservation to an earlier night.


It was pretty quite while we were there, but the hostel was beautiful and in a wonderful location. Breakfast was absolutely delicious! Meknes was our favorite stop during our trip to Morocco, and we wished we could have stayed longer!


We ended up extending our stay and then coming back here after a bad experience in Fez. I cannot recommend Riad Zahraa and Younes enough- they really made us feel at home and you really don't find that in many hostels. Especially for our situation. Very special place and highly recommended.


The Riad is pretty and generally well located. In the winter the Riad is not warm up so it's pretty cold even if you can warm your room up. Rooms are clean and quite spacious. Younes that will welcome you is ok even if he is trying to push you to buy the services that the hostel is offering (which are quite expensive comparing to the "real price"). I would recommand it to people that are looking for European standard and that don't count their money so much. It's easy to find a cheaper place.


The Riad is splendid, very nice! It definitely worths to visit Meknes... a little bit of calm and open spaces after crazy Fez!


Beautiful Riad, Caring Host, Outside sometimes a little loud with playing children and crowing roosters, Internet worked for us in our room only half of our stay, don't stop beleaving in hot water in the shower, it comes after 10 Minutes. As described in other reviews shower is still not draining off well and the toilet is loose on one side. Breakfast was very simple compared to other Riads we stayed in. However we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.


We had an amazing stay in the riad and really enjoyed it. Everything was perfect and couldn't have been better. The rooms, the athmosphere as well as the rooftop terrace were without doubt stunning.

Thank you very much for your review, you are welcome, and we were very happy to receive you. Best regards Riad Zahraa Owner.


Nice riad, we had dinner once which was good but too expensive compared to what you pay in restaurants for the same.


Very grand and clean and the staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful. In a great location, a couple of minutes walk from the square. We had a very warm welcome and felt at home instantly. I could not recommmend eating at this riad more. The food was delicious and a very welcome change from the standard tagines and cous cous we had eaten previously throughout our trip. The flavours were amazing and presented with a lot of care and attention. The whole experience was very special.
