This Riad is located in the heart of the old Medina part of Meknes call Dar el Kabir. Quaint rooms but less offthe creature comforts of a hotel. The building and rooms are a site to see bu remember its 400 years old. Food service is not what you expect out of a restaurant but it's incredible in taste.

Now if they would just improve their service (slow and unhelpful) and put wifi in the rooms, this hotel could easily be a 5-star. The rooms were magnifIcent and full of character, the breakfast and dinner were good albeit slow, and the wifi was only available in the lobby. All in all, definitely worth it for the rooms, but don't...

We chose this Riad because of its look and decoration. It's room looks like an ancient palace in "One thousands and one nights", rich and lavishly decorated in traditional morocco style. Room is very spacious (we have one of the suite) and with huge bathroom and big tab. But it uses a water heater in the bath room. It quickly...

Nice riad. Beautifully styled. Good service and a very nice breakfast. Location is fine and nice and quiet. Room was very spacious. Only downside is that the hot water ran out pretty quickly.

The palace was once lovely, now a little dusty/sticky. Our room was enormous, ditto the bathroom - and the staff did try but were a little hapless. In fairness we arrived during the celebration of Eid Al Adha and the riad was not, perhaps, fully staffed. Again, they tried, but we experienced much, much better service and quality for the...

We only stayed one night at this Riad as part of our tour of Morocco. The rooms were large, linen of good quality and the central courtyard a wonderful oasis upon arrival and for meals. Breakfast was a treat, do not miss out on the moist buttery cake even if thats not your usual breakfast fare. Central to the tourist...

I have been to Meknes a few times and tried a few different hotels. But I have found my favorite in Palais Didi - here I got great value for the money. Stayed 5 nights this October and felt more comfortable and welcome there than at any of the other hotels. Genuinely friendly and caring staff. Had two fantastic dinners...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Didi is a descendant of sultan Moulay Sulaiman and grandfather to the present owners. Didi had 4 wives, each of them had her own quarters on the ground floor of what is now referred to as Riad Palais Didi. Today Palais Didi is a real masterpiece of Moroccan craftsmanship. Restored in the purest Moroccan style, it is organized around a large patio and a nice fountain where you would eventually refresh during the long summer days. ... more   less
