I would like to start by saying that I stayed here 2 years ago and am not one to write reviews on these types of websites, but the service and the standard of the accommodation at the Dar Assalama was by far the best (and I have stayed in dozens and dozens of different places). The family that run the... More

Absolutely stunning Riad. Greatly situated within Medina and superfriendly and hospital personnell. The Riad has it all: very nice atmosphere with true Moroccan style. Even the smallest details have been taken care of (e.g. candle lights at the stairs at night to finis the all romantic experience). Very nice fresh cooked breakfast in the morning (differs every day....which most places... More

Dar Assalama is a pleasant, clean riad inside the old city walls, not far from the SupraTours bus station. It was a little hard to find, so we were accompanied by the somewhat aggressive porters starting from outside the bus station, but the hotel staff shooed them away once we arrived. On the staff, we found them to be very... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as the last stretch of our honeymoon in Morocco. It was a fantastic base to explore Essaouira, ideally situated within the medina but close to the 'Supertours' bus station. Felt thoroughly at home here, relaxing in the communal area on the ground floor, open fire in the evening, tea and coffee on tap whenever... More

This was the best place we stayed in, in one of the oldest, most quiet, parts of the medina, but within easy reach of everything. Had a peak at all six rooms, as was empty when we stayed and they are all decorated differently, fantastic and ensuite. There is even a kitchen downstairs for your use. The rooms and bathrooms...

Rooms were great, breakfast was lovely and different every day which was a really nice touch and served on the roof terracel. The terrace was also perfect for relaxing on as well. The location...

We spend three days at Dar Assalama. Very nice and helpfull staff and nice clean rooms. The riad is perfectly located in the Medina, close to everything worth doing. On top of it all, they served the best breakfast at their roof-lounge, with a beautyful view over all af the city. Perfect stay!!!

A very pleasant and nice riad in the old part of Essaouira. It is small, has only six rooms and has very nice and helpful staff. The rooms look nice, but the lamps by the beds are useless for reading. We also had problems with the hot water. Breakfast is a bit on the heavy side with lots of pancakes... More
