The owner was not there when we stayed, but the ladies who look after the place were quite helpful and accommodating (despite my terrible attempts at speaking French!). The breakfasts were also really very good, and the common areas of the riad are quite pretty. However, our room (the blue room above the front door) was damp, the bathroom smelled,... More

Nestled at the end of a quiet street in the medina, each room in this spacious, beautifully-restored riad is both charming and comfortable, with a peaceful open kitchen/courtyard downstairs and a relaxing roof terrace. The owner Britta was incredibly kind and accommodating answering many questions over email in advance of our trip. Britta organised a taxi to meet us at... More

Well situated within the Medina. Rooms are comfortable and Britta very welcoming. She gave us good tips on restaurants . Breakfast is on the terrace if weather fine and very relaxing. Everything within walking distance of the riad . A good place to stay and nicely decorated.

We stayed at Easter and I meant to write this review months ago (just looking for something else on tripadvisor has reminded me that it slipped my mind) Riad Imik Imik was a lovely place. Super clean and organised, and Britta made things pretty easy for us. We chose the riad because we wanted an adjoining room ideally for our... More

Absolutely fantastic stay with Britta in her Riad in Essaouira! Britta was very welcoming of us into her home. She was there to meet us at the bus station (as me and my girlfriend had travelled from Marrakech) and guided us back to her Riad within the medina. The Riad is perfectly situated - not too close to the hustle... More

Britta's Riad was a welcoming rest from having just spent a busy week travelling through Morocco's eastern provences, and towards the end of a five week holiday. We very much needed the downtime that Essaouira offered and Britta certainly facilitated this. Her recommendations for navigating through the medina and dealing with local shopkeepers was much appreciated. Britta happily directed us... More

My partner and I stayed for three nights in riad Imik Imik, after a stay in Marrakesh and a trip through the desert. Britta, the owner of the riad, met us at the Marrakesh gate of the medina. The riad is only a two minute walk from the gate, and Essaouira's medina is a lot less complicated than the one... More

I had the pleasure of staying in Riad Imik Imik for a week. The Riad is beautifully decorated and a real haven of piece and tranquility. The rooms are lovely and comfy and the rooftop terrace offers a fascinating view of Essaouira. Britta is a fantastic hostess and was there at the airport to meet me as she was in... More

Riad Imik Imik is the perfect place to stay if you visit Essaouira. It is beautifully decorated and the rooms are very comfortable. There is a stunning view from the roof top terrace where we spent every evening. Some evening, however, it could get a bit windy and damp, but then again, who cares when you can wrap a blanket...

We found Imik Imik in our book guide at the last moment when we were in our way to Essaouira.. and we had the good luck of finding a room available for us. Britta waited for us at the parking lot and walked us to the house....and what a pleasant surprise!: Imik Imik is a beautiful house decorated with exquisite... More
