Riad D'Or Meknes Medina Reviews
Pleasant place Jan 02, 2014
The hotel is situated in the narrow streets of Medina of Meknes, not far from Place El Hedhim. Although located in the old part of the city, it is not difficult to find due to being well sing-posted.
This renovated townhouse is a true maze with its many courtyards, lounges, corridors and staircases.
Decorated in the traditional Moroccan style, the place oozes mystery and charm. Many parts are amazing display of the Moroccan architecture and beautifully arranged furnishings.
Our room was located somewhere on 2nd floor. It was a good size bedroom with a double bed, a sofa, a table, bedside tables and a small build-in wardrobe. Air-conditioning unit was a great advantage since the evenings were still a little cool.
The room had a window going out directly onto a roof terrace with a swimming pool. Shame it was too cold to take advantage of it.
En-suite bathroom was a comfortable size with a shower facility, and towels and bathroom essentials provided.
On arrival we were given a complimentary tea served with biscuits, and offered hammam and massage service which could have been arranged at the hotel (at the discounted price).
The hotel has it's own restaurant which is located across the street and is beautifully set with a small open-air patio with plants. We dined there twice - for dinner and breakfast.
At the time of our evening meal, there was a local band playing Moroccan music in the restaurant which gave us a more authentic feel for this place.
The restaurant has a good choice of dishes, but we decided on a set menu which a flayer of we have seen at the hotel.
My choice for the evening meal was a Moroccan soup followed by a veg tagine and traditional biscuits with tea. All the food was prepared well and tasted delightful.
The breakfast was included in the room price and consisted of various breads, sweet rolls, jam, tea and juice (not fresh though). Food tasted good, but we were expecting a little more (maybe some warm pancakes at least?) considering how nice the hotel was.
On both occasions the service was pretty slow, which could be easily understood with the busy evening service, but when we arrived at breakfast, we were the only table awaiting food. This is something that the hotel should improve on a little.
Free wi-fi worked fine during our stay.
Due to its location the hotel does not offer private parking. There is a paid parking available at the close-by location.
Average room price per night - £38.00/€45.00 which is reasonable considering that the hotel is situated in the Medina.
I would recommend the place for a stay due to an affordable price, central location and a good overall service.
