RIAD FELLOUSSIA | Meknes

Very well located in the ancient part of the medina, Riad Felloussia is a rustic and authentic riad with many original features, a lovely central courtyard and a large roof terrace which directly overlooks two of the most famous landmarks, Place el Hedim and Bab Mansour. The reasonably priced characterful rooms, decorated in warm, earthy colours and containing interesting local artifacts are found at ground and first floor level.

The riad also has an exceptionally helpful owner, the traditional evening meals served here receive much praise from recent visitors and it is close to a superb original hammam, to which a visit may be arranged.

Staff: The owner, Lionel - who teaches English and therefore speaks the language very well – and family are welcoming hosts with much local knowledge, and their French speaking staff are charming, efficient and friendly. In addition we commend Lionel’s very ethical approach to tourism.
