Very good breakfast, clean place. Special thanks to Mr. Mustapha! I suggest this riad for all..couples and family, very quiet! really easy to find it and is close to the ancients wall. We see the Berber show music and was fantastic

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

This Riad is one of the nicest and most hospitable hotels I've stayed at. We (two Dutch girls and me, Australian) booked a triple room, asking for separate beds and the large size room. When we got there, they gave us separate beds but a small room and quickly changed us once we agreed space was premium and we could... More

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights at Riad Al khansaa in July 2013 but wished we had stayed longer. We found this lovely riad in the medina after having already booked and paid for another hotel in essouria which unfortunately dissapointed us. Riad Al Khansaa was just the right place to fully enjoy our last three days of holiday,... More

Terrible experience. Menacing staff. bedbedside lights didn´t work nor the fridge. No toiletries. Filthy minging bathroom. I would NEVER stay there again. The road to get to it was full of excrement (Animal or human). Dark and dingy. Nothing like other places I have stayed in in Morocco.

I was travelling to Essauira with 3 x 16 year old boys after just finishing our climb on Mount Toubkal, Marrakech and you can imagine how tired we were. The Riad doesnt have a room with 4 single beds but they went out of their way to give us the largest ensuite room and add another single bed with no... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Great place, nice location just near the port, not far from the good restaurant. Rooms are clean, cool decorated. Lobby is also very good decorated. Breakfast was very good and delicious. Spent great time here!

We just spent 5 lovely nights at the this riad, which has a beautiful and unusual round central opening - rather then the traditional square! We didn't book ahead and since it was quiet season, we managed to get one of the sunnier rooms on the top floor (Ask for Room 10!) for just 300 dirhams a night, plus 50... More

We had no accommodation in Essaouira and were delighted to find this lovely Riad. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the acoustic guitar session on Friday night was magical. It is right by the walls and the terrace has a great view across the town and the ocean. It was good value for money, in a great location... More
