Thanks to Claudia for making us very welcome and for all her advice (written on map of Essaouria as well as given verbally) on where to go/what to do during our brief stay. Baladin is a delightful Riad in a superb location. Each room offers something a bit different. We were in Chambre Rose which is spacious, cosy and simply... More

Great Riad, perfect location in the heart of the medina. Sea view from the lovely roof terrace, Rooms all quirky and different - a couple of rooms don't have bathroom or shower doors! Great breakfast on terrace. Staff very helpful and friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay at Riad Baladin. The Riad has a really relaxed atmosphere and chilled out vibe. The highlight is probably the roof terrace, which offers views over the medina and has lots of different cozy sitting areas as well as sunbeds to relax. The rooms have white walls, are bright and airy with a very natural feel.... More

I write again to thank you Nicole and staff for your warmth and hospitality during our September stay. Your gorgeous residence, beautifully kept, with attention to detail, great decor and comfort is a credit to your professionalism. My group felt relaxed, happy and attended to. A great stay all round.

As an expat living in Marrakech, I have a pretty good gauge for value when traveling in Morocco, and I can say without a doubt that Riad Baladin is a great value! I loved the raw look of the bed frames and had two amazing silent nights of sleep on the perfectly firm mattresses/soft bedding. Nicole can give you great... More

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

Dear guests of Riad Baladin Wow, what a review! We never got something like this in the last past 4 years... We are sorry to hear that you were not satisfied - we were under the impression you where. To refer to the response all hotels in Essaouira which are very close to the Sea suffer a lot of Sea... 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
