From our first steps inside Riad Baladin we were blown away by the tranquil, stylish, and beautiful interior. Our expectations were exceeded further by the manager, Nicole, who made the effort to pick us up from the bus station and guide us to the Riad. She even took the time to explain to us, and mark on a map, which... More

A big thanks to Nicole and her wonderful staff for their warm welcome and a pleasant, comfortable stay with my tour group in May 2014. Before we headed to our blissful, white washed, beachy-style rooms, Nicole took the time to fully inform us of Essaouira, great places to visit, eat and see…accompanied by a pocket map…very practical. The rooms were... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riad Baladin; Nicole and her team were very welcoming to us and Nicole took time on both days to sit with us and help us come up with itineraries. She gave us some good recommendations. Our room ('chambre blanche') was beautiful and light, with a very relaxed and beachy vibe appropriate for Essaouira. The... More

What can I say about Riad Baladin, but absolutely beautiful. My husband, son and myself stayed there for a week. We wanted a holiday where we would see enough culture and also be able to relax, due to our hectic working life in the city (London). Well I could not have asked for anything more. Nicole was just so accommodating... More

We read the reviews for this place and we were not disappointed. It really is a hidden gem. The Riad is less than 10 minutes walk from the Supratours stop and two minutes from the main shopping street. As for Baladin? It is delightful. From the decoration to the ladies and gent that run it. The rooms are stylish, super... More

I visited Essaouira once myself and decided to show this cool place to my wife. This is why I had to select a special, 'right' hotel for that. So it's modern but yet very authentic, clean but not 'plastic'. So it was quite a task :) Finally, I selected Riad Baladin. And it was our best decision indeed. So, a... More

Nicole greeted us at the bus station and drove us to the Riad, leading us through the refreshingly hassle-free and spacious streets of Essaouira which was a welcome break from the bustling and exhausting Marrakech Souks. Baladin is tucked away down a side street and is bright, clean and beautifully decorated. We had the honeymoon suite which was spacious and... More

Simplistic, bright and beautiful Riad. It was a breathe of fresh air, literally arriving here after staying in Marrakech. We chose the Terrace room at the top of the Riad and were extremely pleased with our choice. Nicole collected us from the Supatours coach and gave us a detailed account of the best places to eat, things to do and... More

Riad Baladin was one of the best riads that I stayed in while travelling through Morocco - the style, simplistic, classy, and tasteful - very detail oriented - Nicole, the host was fantastic with excellent suggestions and recommendations, loved the place, wish I could have stayed longer and would recommend it highly to anyone going to Essaouira.
