Hygiene issues need to be addressed - but hey, you pay for what you get! We were so excited to stay at Riad Baladin, the pictures on the website made it looked really cool, coastal, and bohemian, but sadly it missed the mark! It was tired and in need of serious TLC. Our bed was held together with brown tape,... More

Three of us stayed in Riad Baladin and enjoyed it very much. The locations is close to the city wall and hidden in the little alley. We found it by ourselves by asking people. What makes this Riad special is their owners, who are very welcoming and sweet ladies. They explained what to do in the town and gave some... More

Nicole has done an outstanding job with the decor. Very pleasant rooms with natural light. Nice public spaces for reading,... Breakfast on the roof in included entertainment by the gulls and some colorful sparrow-size birds. The dog was most friendly; multilingual.

We had a wonderful holiday in Essaouira and our stay at Riad Baladin was perfect. Our room was gorgeous, beautifully decorated with interesting pictures and nick-naks. The rest of the riad was stunning, all very tastefully done with individually styled bedrooms. The breakfast was a real treat and we were served by two very lovely women.

So happy to have chosen Riad Baladin for our stay in Essaouira. Location is perfect in the heart of the medina, the riad is hidden away down a little side street so get a luggage helper to show you the way when you arrive. The rooms & general decoration are beautiful & the jacuzzi is a lovely addition (included in... More

This is truly a hotel within the small, narrow streets of Essaouira integrated into a Riad. There is simply nothing going wrong here: great design, above par breakfast, enough space on the roof terrace and a jacuzzi free of charge. Expecially for couples, this may be a romantic retreat. However, it does come at a price tag.

Riad Baladin is a gem! White-washed, relaxed, elegantly and tastefully appointed. A wonderful jacuzzi to soak in before bedtime. Breakfast was delicious, served on a terrace with a view of the ocean. The room was very clean, bright and airy. The beds were comfortable. We called when we arrived in Essaouira and Claudia met us at the car. She showed... More

We spent 5 days at the Riad Baladin and loved every minute of it. Claudia and Axelle were both fantastic. Axelle met us at the Supratours bus station as we made our way to Essaouira from Marrakech which was very helpful as we had no idea where we were going. On our arrival Claudia sat with us and showed us... More

A hidden gen in Essaouira's streets, in centre ( almost ) of the Medina this place is luxuriously equipped, tastefully decorated and secure. The management were helpful and the rooms cleaned regularly and well. The breakfasts on the roof - well suffice it to say I did not want them to end. A really special place.

We spent a couple of days in the Riad Baladin and enjoyed it very much. In the morning you woke up by the noise of the sea and the seagulls and then started with a great break breakfast. From there you could dive "prepared" into the Medina. There was no problem that our daughters could go out as well (14,... More
