The rooms were very comfortable and in good condition, Breakfast was a feast of a huge range of delicious foods and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The Riad is set in a beautiful part of the Medina, quiet, short walk to... More

I would definitely stay here again and have 2 times before. I've stayed in some other Riads in Essouria that were noisy, in bad need of repairs and really "worn out" but found that Riad Baladin met my criteria. The breakfast was good and the comical sea gulls (don't forget the town is famous for them) a relief from some... More

Moldy walls, doors that can't be locked, birds in the breakfast cereal ... but unfortunately the management doesn't listen but always faults the client. Also, some rooms are really tiny, like the family room which doesn't even leave room for any luggage to put down. With the right attitude and action, this could be a nice place. Until that happens...

Beautiful, stylish Riad in the Medina. Very friendly and laid back. Clean, spacious rooms with excellent staff and service. Very good breakfast served on the terrace. Nicole and her staff work hard to maintain an excellent level of service. Thoroughly recommended. I would definitely stay again!

Lovely tranquil place to stay in the centre of the Medina, easy walking to the souk, beach, ramparts, port, restaurants - couldn't be better! Very friendly and laid back, pretty rooms and great breakfasts on the roof terrace in the morning sunshine.

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. I highly recommend Riad Baladin.
