My friend and I stayed with Nicole at her stylish riad for two nights. The moment you step through the door of the chic but affordable riad made up of three family homes, you feel as if you are in an elegant living museum. The rooms are all tastefully decorated in a Moroccan meets Scandinavian meets nautical theme - with... More

We stayed at Baladin for four nights and had an amazing time. The rooms are full of character; with beautiful shower and bath units and a very comfortable bed. The staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to help with anything you need. Nicole, the manager is an outstanding host and has a detailed knowledge of what... More

Riad Baladin was a lovely place to end my 2-week trip to Morocco. The room was clean, although I couldn't get the lock to work. Nevertheless, the room was comfortable and breezy, and the rest of the hotel is gorgeous. The staff was very helpful, and helped me find my way to the hotel from the main gate to the... More

No Air conditioning but also No windows in twin room so we had to keep our doors open at night to keep cool . The toilet does not have a door so if you are having a bad day in toilet, it would stink the whole room. The triple room is tiny with one double bed and 2 mattresses on... More

Nice Riad in the Mediana. Helpfull staff who picked us up ouside the Medina when we arrived by Taxi. Good good breakfast. Room was a bit small for a family of four. Rooftop terrace in many levels with good view.

We spent 2 wonderful nights here. It is difficult to find any faults - the riad is beautifully decorated and is very peaceful and calm. Our room was gorgeous and airy. The location is perfect - in the medina and walking distance from anything you could need as the medina is very small. Nicole wasn't around during our stay, however... More

Baladin was fantastic while we were in the riad (the interior design is great, the beds comfy, the breakfast enjoyable, the hot tub a nice touch) and also while we were out, as the hosts Nicole and Claudia were full of recommendations - for dinner, drinks, spa and activities. Great location - central but quiet - and the perfect relaxing... More

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights at the quirky Riad Baladin. The Riad is set in the heart of the Medina and was an excellent location from which to enjoy the best of traditional Essaouira. The riad was quiet, clean and offered a delicious continental breakfast on the terrace each day. We had the terrasse room on the... More

We recently stayed at the Riad Baladin and as soon as we walked in the door we knew we had made the right choice. It has a lovely soothing atmosphere, decorated in calming tones with lovely rooms, a decadent hot tub and a great welcome from Nicole and her team. Stay there if you can!
