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

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...

Earlier this year we had the good fortune of enjoying a two week stay in Imik Imik. within seconds of walking in all our gazes drifted up to take in the beauty of the Riad so lovingly restored by Britta.

Imik Imik is a a beautifully restored riad down a quiet cul-de-sac just inside the old medina, yet only a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the souks. The house itself is fantastic and the effort Britta has put into it is phenomenal. She has left no stone unturned in the restoration and there are little charms... More

Riad Imik Imik is incredibly beautifully decorated by gracious German owner Britta. An exquisite blend of the best of Moroccan style and nordic style. If you don't mind staying in the Medina this is the perfect place to stay. 3 totally different rooms. Lovely living room. Two terraces.
