My wife and l own a small bed and breakfast and can only praise the level of dedication of Nicole. A host making you feel like you are staying at the house of a friend. Perfect view too and the fireplace in the bedroom was the cherry on the cake. We ll be back and merci Nicole!

Really liked the style of this riad, stayed in the amore room which looked fabulous with a rustic 4 poster bed but it literally creaked with every turn so don't go planning anything too romantic as the whole riad will hear you!! Plus there's no door from the bedroom to the bathroom so if you're squeamish about toilet privacy maybe... More

Had a lovely stay despite the weather . We arrived in floods of rain, but Claudia negotiated us paddling through the medina ! We did get a couple of sunny days and enjoyed relaxing on the roof terrace. It has a good atmosphere and was quite sociable when we were there . Excellent location - near to sea, restaurants, and...

My wife and I stayed there for two nights and we had a great time. The riad is managed by a Swiss lady named Nicole. She was very helpful re: activities and restaurant recommendations. The riad itself is very, very nice and clean. It has a bit of a hippy vibe to it! It is also well located. The breakfast... More

Nicole looked after us beautifully in her well run Riad for our five night stay. Our room (chambre blanche) was bright and breezy and to be recommended. The Riad reflected the laid back atmosphere of Essaouira and is a great place to base yourself for a few nights. I'd also thoroughly recommend Valerie the in house Raiki practitioner.

What a great place to be in the Medina. It is a very detail-oriented hotel that focuses on looking like home while still being exotic. It is greatly located and they also have a jacuzzi, which makes anything much better. I just cannot recommend this riad enough.

What a treasure tucked away in the heart of the Medina! A beautiful , bright and spotlessly clean Riad run by a very friendly hostess, Nicole. An nourishing breakfast was served by very friendly and amenable staff on the rooftop. The Riad had so much character and the hot tub was an added bonus. Nicole gave us great tips on... More

What an incredible 5 nights!! My fiancé and I travelled to Riad Baladin on recommendation and we were in no way disappointed. From the moment we arrived Nicole was so very welcoming. She immediately took us to a snug room offered us water and discussed the highlights of Essaouira. Following this we were taken to our room which blew us... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights. It is a really beautiful Riad, with lovely rooms and the owner Nicole was really helpful giving us a guide of Essaouira with a detailed map and tips on where was good to eat and what was good to do. Unfortunately we felt a bit let down on our stay at... More

Dear guests of Riad Baladin We're really sorry that this lovely couple has been here in a moment when we did some work after the winter period: repaint the balustrade of the terrace and the tables for breakfast which we do every year after the raining season and on days when it's not windy! (mostly beginning of march) Also, we... More

This is a charming riad well sited in a quiet corner of the walled town. There are good views from the roof terrace (where breakfast is served) and it is a short walk to the splendid sea wall and fortifications. We were two couples including one person needing help with walking. Both Nicole, the manager, and Claudia, the Saturday manager,... More
