I’ve now stayed in half-a-dozen or so riads in Essaouira in this price bracket (300-400 Dhs): I think this was probably the best. It certainly helps when you’re greeted with a smile and someone receptive to a joke, which our host very welcomingly did; he was also helpful with filling out the police cards—only once have I been asked to...

On arrival to Riad Al Khansaa, we were welcomed with complimentary tea whilst looking at fabulous art work in the lobby. We were pleasantly surprised as paid very little for our three night stay. Wifi was very good in lobby area and on first floor, but that was all. Breakfast in the mornings was served to table, a traditional Moroccan... More

Hotel Riad Al Khansaa, is a lovely riad placed in the medina of Essaouira. The staff is helpful, charming and calm, and the atmosphere at Al Khansaa is quite and easy. Showering water is hot and internet is available in the foyer. Our host, Mustapha, was indeed friendly and nice to us.

As we travelled during low season we had the fortune, as walk-ins with no reservations, of being able to negotiate room and price. We were given the "suite"; which also had a fireplace. We made the mistake of actually using it and were surprised no one complained about the smoke bellowing into the courtyard (the chimney was likely obstructed). We... More

The room was beautiful, that also goes for the archirecture of the inside garden/atrium. Roof terrace with a superb view. Nice breakfast which is only... More

My boyfriend and I just stayed here for 11 nights, hoping for a windsurfing holiday however were unlucky with the wind. This friendly, relaxed riad helped to make up for it. We were upgraded to a large room, which had a very comfortable bed, a clean bathroom and a good shower. Breakfast was delicious, and the staff were very cheerful... More

Good location for the "heart of town". Large clean room centred around a spiral atrium. Pleasant downstairs seating area,where A very good breakfast was served. Very friendly staff throughout my visit even though i got a room at a very discounted rate. Definately better than most of the places in the immediate vicinity.

Very nice, unusual hotel in the heart of the Medina. Expo Moroccan artwork. Warm welcome, and helpful personnel, which is always nice to have. Very reasonable prices. Superb view from the terrace, good restaurant, La Rencontre.

All good. Service and welcome friendly and helpful. Room clean and breakfast very nice. Location central and convenient. Decor rather striking, not to say odd. Would definitely stay at this hotel again, not least because the manager was so welcoming Liz
