First of all if you are going to Essouaria know that the taxis can not drop you off inside the medina. If you are going to any riad or hotel inside the medina you will be dropped off just outside the medina to fend for yourself in the maze of souqs, venders and food stands. **warning** you will get lost...

Very nice staff in this also great riad in the middle of the medina. Still it's quiet, except the BlueSky room at the top because of the seagulls. Breakfast very good, as well the room, i can tell everything was more than OK ! When i should visit again Essaouira, no doubt that i would choose this riad again !!!... More

Located in the centre of the medina, everything you would expect for the price. Reasonably clean with the necessary amenties provided. Staff were always available and happy to help in any way they could.

The location was ideal in the centre of the medina. We had a nice warm welcome and chose the room on the terrace because we wanted something quiet. It was quiet (except for some seagulls). The room was basic, clean and secure. Breakfast was nice and a good size. Wifi didn't work on terrace but worked well in the reception... More

Nice looking riad with good sized rooms and private bathroom. Pretty clean. Staff are friendly but not overbearing. Relaxed about paying etc. Breakfast is typical of morocco - carbohydrate party with some hot drinks and a juice. good location and great price. This is what it is - not a luxury hotel but good value and comfortable. Big storm when... More

We stayed in a double for one night; 250dh. Good price for a riad in the middle of the medina. The owner is really nice. There is not that much atmosphere, with people hanging on the rooftop, but the rest is great!

It was just a little bit difficult to find it because it's located in a small street in the center of medina, between the 2 main streets. So it's perfect to visit Essaouira and the staff has been very nice to us, suggesting a wonderful restaurant for dinner. Nothing to complain about the room: clean, nice and very quite, it... More

There is a very friendly staff in this riad. Another plus is a fresh and quiet ambience, really it's so quiet, that you can't guess that it's located in the center of medina. Location is very ok, with gps it's not a problem to find (location in tripadvisor is wrong). There is bazar right in 30 min from the entrance...... More

Other reviewers have said it, but it bears repeating: the staff here are really what makes the place. I stayed at Sidi Magdoul during the Festival Gnaoua, which is probably the busiest time of the year in Essaouira, but there was always someone on hand to dispense advice or have a friendly chat (be it in French, English, Spanish or...
