RIAD SAFIR | Meknes

Set in the former Ambassador’s district in the ancient part of the medina and very convenient for all the major sights and souks of Meknes. Riad Safir is a superbly run, reasonably priced riad with pretty roof terrace from which you can watch the sunset and have a high quality traditional evening meal.

The fantastic staff offer an excellent range of activities including cookery lessons, excursions, visits to a local hammam and guided tours of the town, the Middle Atlas Mountains and the Roman Ruins at Volubilis.

Riad Safir

Details

Accommodation: The 7 colourful, homely rooms are arranged around two courtyards and come in a variety of sizes and prices, including rooms to sleep 3 or 4 people.

The original 3-bedroomed riad has a cheerful decor themed around oranges and reds, comprising 1 double suite on the ground floor and 2 double suites on the first floor, one of which has a mezzanine with single bed accessed by a steep ladder with the facility to bolt the door from the outside. 

There are 4 extra suites in the adjacent riad: Tiznit a double suite on the ground floor; Rissani, Merzouga and Meknes on the first floor, all of which take extra beds.
