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

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

The riad Al Khansaa is a must. Off the beaten track but close to the ancient wall a great Riad for singles, couples or children. You are welcomed by Mr Mangor, the manager and his staff, mint tea in abundance. A clean welcoming and relaxing accommodation. The aesthetics are more than pleasurable to every human sense, amazing art in every... More

The manager of the hotel was instantly there to welcome us, with mint tea, and was exceptionally helpful during our two day stay. All staff were attentive and friendly, and was more than happy to help with anything. Room was lovely, very spacious and very clean. Shower was a bit of fun, as I ended up soaking the bathroom, while... More

We spent two nights in Riad Al Khansaa, impressed by the beauty and good quality of this guesthouse and the overwhelming warm welcome by Mr Mangom, the manager. He took good care of us and we enjoyed a lot his company and good sense of humour. The place is very nice and welcoming. Essaouira is a must-see with windy beaches... More
