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...

The riad is okay: small room, a bit humid and dark. Breakfast was very fulfilling: fresh juice, coffee or tea, pan cake, bread... The town stole my heart! Friendly, welcoming people, surprising alleys and big market. I definitely recommend a visit, and a stay in the riad (since you don't spend a lot of time there).

Pros: This centrally located riad is very nicely decorated. Breakfast was good and included in the overall cost, which was very affordable. What really made it stand out was how brilliant the staff were- so exceptionally helpful, kind and friendly, even helping to show us around after their shifts and finished. Cons; no air conditioner or ventilation in the room... More

We stayed in this riad for several nights in between our trip around Marocco and liked it very much. The staff are very helpful. Rooms are nice and clean and if when there were several rooms available we could choose where to stay, so we tried 3 types of rooms. There are no airconditioners, but actually we did not need...

Good value for money and excellent location - right in the medina and close to the beach or bus station. Rooms are simple but clean and comfy, wi-fi is working very well and the staff is just amazing. They were very helpful and nothing we asked for was a problem for them. Breakfast was very good and we appreciated the... More

We had three nights at this lovely Riad and found it extremely close to everything, right in the medina and well equipped. Staff were very friendly and willing to help with any question or matter. Breakfast was very nice and included in the price. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the Riad itself was very nicely decorated.
