Our spacious room contained a king size bed with side cupboards, a lounge, storage cupboard with a mirror, a flat screen TV, a coffee table, built in wardrobe and reliable wi fi. The lighting was dim but another table lamp was provided on request. The well lit bathroom has a shower over an enormous bath, a toilet, bidet and a... More

Friendly and professional staff, very good breakfast (at the rooftop!). The location is excellent and our room in the first floor was clean and very big (2 levels). I believe the rooms in the higher floors have an ocean view. Don't miss the hammam!

We had a room on the second floor for a family that was well set up with a balcony/loft inside (and no view). the bathroom was quite large with bathtub. Our room was not high end, but serviceable, and I saw rooms that were much nicer with large fireplaces. Still, with a family, we could not complain about having a... More

We've spent 3 days - 2 nights in Essaouira breaking up our Marrakech visit. We had visited Essaouira 14 years ago so I knew that this hotel's location was very nice, overlooking hte portugese fortress walls and the seafront, and very close to the shopping and souk streets. Upon arriving and a swift transfer to the room on the first... More

Very professional service. This is five storey building in situated in narrow historic alleys; if you want an external view instead of the traditional window onto the courtyard you should specify this. Sea views are at a premium except from the roof terrace, which is open to all residents.

This place is lovely, but the night we were there, a group of Gnaoua musicians performed during the downstairs dinner in the courtyard. They were DEAFENING, performing the same routine until climax every half hour. The performances continued until just before midnight. The music was so loud upon our evening arrival, I literally could not hear the receptionist, centimeters from... More

I booked this hotel online through Expedia and I was mistaken in thinking that it would be a four star hotel. Like other guests, I saw the word 'Palais' in the title and assumed it was a little grander than the most basic of establishments. This is a BASIC hotel. The showers hardly work. There're was LOUD gnaoua music until... More

I booked this hotel on Expedia and had mistakenly thought it was a 4 star hotel. In reality it's about a 2 or 3 star. Very basic. And in no way a splurge. Shower hardly worked. Rooms had a plug in electric heater which was hidden away in a cupboard. So first night was freezing. TV didn't work. Breakfast was... More

My husband and I visited here recently. The staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast on the terrace is really good with lots of choices and a great view! The elevator ride up is a little scary because it's eerily small. The room itself looked a little tired and dark, and could use a little updating but still keep the... More
