Riad Chakir Mogador is a cute riad located close to the main street in the Essaouira medina. They provided a tasty breakfast (consisting of traditional Moroccan fare – bread, pancake, jam, tea, etc) Each of the rooms were unique and had their own flavour. My room (on the 3rd floor) was a bit on the smaller side (compared to others... More

We came to this riad in Essaouira after one week in Marrakech and it was truly a disappointment. We were first put in a room with no windows, aweful humidity, weird smell and full of bugs! We complained and they offered to change our room. The second one was a bit better, but still tiny and quite dirty! During breakfast... More

Looking for an affordable triple room in a Riad not far from the main car park near the port, this Riad just off the main L'Istiqlal avenue (which at night is very convenient trust me). Beatiful decoration, really nice sleep. Breakfast in the patio was good also.

GORGEOUS little place. The inside has a fountain, rooms looking down over the main area. Covered in tiles and bright colours. Great atmosphere. My room was quite "authentic" looking (not all are). Some of the rooms are extremely small, but this is easily forgiven because the place is so cute - request a larger one. This place is in the... More

Very friendly, helpful, accommodating, genuine staff. Great location. Great breakfast. They even had a heater in the room as it was a little cold in Morocco when we went. This was the second visit to this Riad by my boyfriend and my first visit. I enjoyed our stay.

Decent hostel and well priced considering it's in the centre of town! Would definitely recommend. Rooms were clean and bathrooms were actually a stunning display of decorated ancient artefacts. Very cool!

The riad is in a great location within the Medina, but is still quite at nights which is great. The breakfast is nice and the rooms are clean. Although some rooms are small (thanks to the riad design) it is a great place to stay and there is so much to do in Essaouira that there isn't time to spent... More

A very nice and beautiful Riad and like all Riads with a very nice Terrasse on top of the building. The Service staff is very friendly and the breakfirst is good. Perfectly situated for a walk through the medina.

This was the beginning of our first trip to Morocco and our first riad. luckily we came from Marrakech by car with a driver and he lead us to the riad on arrival. I think it may have taken us somewhat longer to find if we hadn't had that little bit of assistance!! Once in we were really pleased and... More

If a cheap clean room in a good location with lots of character are your main priorities than this is your spot. We personally had a very small room. The window opened into the court yard, there was not much fresh air, when we woke up the room smelled like a outhouse. The breakfast consisted of orange juice, coffee/tea fresh... More
