This riad is is an excellent location and has an amazing roof top terrace. Rooms are not as luxurious as other riad's I have stayed in for the same price, but they were clean and comfortable nonetheless. Staff were very polite and attentive and the breakfast served on the terrace was of a good standard for this country.

This is by far the best hotel we saw in Essaouira. The service was impeccable and the staff were super friendly. The location....right on the ocean and with a roof terrace looking out at the sea is just super. The decor throughout is stunning.

The Riad gas been returned to a good standard throughout and our room has a great hand made polished bath for two to soak in. The top storey overlooks the Atlantic and the harbour and is great to eat... More

A lovely riad with friendly staff in the medina. Large room with huge bath and reasonably quiet (given it was New Year) Easy to access, good wifi reception and friendly staff (particularly Asna) . Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean was just wonderful. Highly recommend for the price

My sister and I arrived in Essaouria, without a place to stay. We were approached by a man in the parking lot and although this is not how we normally travel, we decided to give it a shot and check out the hotel in the brochure that he showed us. It is just a 5 minute walk from a major... More

Stayed December 2013, just for the night. Was offered a 33% discount without asking. The entrance and main hall are the most impressive parts of the building. The bedroom was really generous with 2 single beds, seating, a desk, large wardrobe and decent ensuite. It had a high ceiling, smelt just a little damp/unnoccupied but was very clean. The bedrooms...

This is the highest building in the medina and the terrace has great panoramic views. It is great positioning for food, exploring and the beach. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The whole place is clean and tidy and the rooms are good. We stayed for a few days and were really happy with it.

We recently stayed there and loved every part of our stay. Fantastic location, good value for money. Amazing views from the rooftop terrace at breakfast. Rooms are comfortable, large, great TV selection if the weather turns funny. Very good breakfast, Moroccan style. Bathrooms are a bit gloomy, could do with better lighting. Beds are very comfortable, very good quality.We enjoyed... More

it is a beautiful place, clean, tired in places, however it seemed to lack soul. The staffwere attentive and kind, I could not really fault them, however, it could really do with the owner being a part of what is going on. It felt corporate, not homely....so to each their own.

We spent a week here in October and were delighted with what we found. The hotel is clean, great location and our room was wonderful (double room on the first floor). Breakfast on the roof terrace in the morning - fresh orange and a variety of French and Moroccan breads/pastries. We also watched the sun set one evening with drinks... More
