I stayed two nights at Riad Baldin and really enjoyed my stay. Nicole was very welcoming.She came to collect me from the Station in her car. Email communication was easy with her.I loved the Hot Tub just before going to bed again on Nicole's recommendation! She even walked me to a great Carpet shop where I ended up buying a... More

When Aladin enterd the cave he never expected the interior to be so amazing. You will know how he felt when the door to Baladin opens. You wind your way down a tight ally of stone walls to come abruptly to a dead end. Once threw the door however, you find yourself standing in an enchanted enterence with colourful art... More

We stayed for two nights during our anniversary and enjoyed Riad Baladin thoroughly. Nicole and her staff were extremely welcoming. The room was unique, comfortable and clean. We really liked how the rooftop was setup. It gave a great view of Essaouira. We finished our evenings with tea on the roof, and then a quick dip in the hot tub.

I had a great stay at Riad Baladin. The house is beautifully decorated and Nicole welcomed me and made me feel at home right away. The location in the medina is excellent and the Riad is a quiet little haven for relaxing. It is offers a perfect antidote to the craziness of Marrakesh while still offering the beautiful colour and... More

Stayed during the New Year period! After arriving very late we were welcomed by Nichole and her awesome dog who gave us recommendations for places to eat and helped us settle in. Breakfast was lovely and very flexable for timings unlike other places we stayed. Really great views views from the terrace and Nichole was always happy to help to... More

fantastic attentive staff, and a very friendly manager Nicole who knows a great deal about the local area and things to do and gave us some great advice for New Years eve dinner at a local restaurant. She gave the riad a very relaxed atmosphere and definitely made you feel at home. The jacuzzi is a huge asset after a... More

We stayed here back in October but I'm so disorganised I just haven't revieed this place yet! My wife and I stayed here for four nights and loved every second. After spending three nights in Marrakech and the craziness that that entails, this was perfect. Right in the middle of the old town and a ten minute walk to the... 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...
