My girlfriend are I stayed here for two nights - and that was two nights to long! Yes it is cheap, however there are a lot of cheap places around! Rooms were stinking hot, not once did we see toilet paper in any of the bathrooms for the 2.5 days we were there. And when we asked for some, they... More

Our entire stay at Hotel Essaouira was without fault - from the cleanliness of the rooms to the friendly reception of the staff. We stayed in two rooms (9 and 5 I believe). The first night was fully booked except for a more expensive option. This room was large with two double beds, very clean and light with a window... More

I stayed here for one night. It was alright, but not more. I had to pay 120 dirham, because she said there were no more single rooms. I wasn't very excited by the hostess, who said the total amount of words to me of: "We have this room." "Ok give me your passport." "You pay now or later please". But... More

Just a short walk to Djemma el Fna, friendly, and, inexpensive. Staff remembered me 14 years after my last visit. Beautiful inner courtyard, comfortable roof terrace, and chilled out atmosphere. Many happy memories here.

Hostel is placed near to Jamaa-al-Fna, it's clean and really good-looking. Owner is helpful (he organised our trip to desert Erg Chebbi and getting to the airport). He speaks really good English and French, there was no problems to communicate. We pay 50 dh per person in double rooms (in April of 2014 we pay 100 dh for one room).... More

We left our bagpacks in the hostel during a two day desert trip. This is a free service in hostels normally, but in Essaouira they charged 2 Euros for it. When we came back, our backpacks were opened and a headphone was missing. When we asked at the reception about it, they denied having opened the backpacks and said we... More

Hotel Essaouira is a beautiful location to stay. It is very cheap and only 30 seconds walking from the Djeema el Fna (the center of Marrakech medina). The rooms are adequately clean and tidy and the atmosphere is very friendly. All the travellers sit outside their rooms in the comfortable courtyard or the roof, and you get to meet everyone....

I've been in Morocco 3 times and this is one of the worst experiences ever! We were 8 people. We asked for a room (where we could keep the luggage) and 8 places on the terrace, because we wanted to sleep outdoor and often this is possible in Morocco. The man at the reception asked if two of us would... More

This is an old, somewhat rundown hotel. I got a large, airy room with private bath. The mattress was only slightly sloping towards the middle. A good centrally located stopover for someone on a modest budget.
