Paco and his wife are wonderful hosts in their 5 room facility. However, they are not helped by noisy neighbours adjoining the rear of their building and the adjoining Mosque. Also Booking.com describes the rooms as having, refrigerator, Microwave and Kettle BUT they have not. MISREPRESENTATION. Otherwise great.

This little riad has a great location, wonderful staff, and nicely decorated. My only complaint is that I booked early and requested a particular room, but when we arrived we were given a different room than expected. but for the quality at this price I can't complain.

We travelled 2 weeks in Morocco, stayed in different hotels in different cities, but for sure it was the best one! Friendly personal and they even put in order our things! What's bad - poor breakfest & be ready to wake up 6 a.m. as mosquee just next door and they starts to pray.

The riad is on a quiet back street. Staff were super nice. We rented the smallest and cheapest room and it was still lovely (the top floor). Despite some reviews that said the top floor did not have wifi, we found that to be untrue - we had great wifi. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and room tastefully decorated. Nice... More

This was our second time staying here. Brilliant location right in the heart of the medina. Friendly and accommodating staff who were so kind as to feed us an early breakfast. Looking forward to returning again some time in the future. Clean comfortable beds and traditional Moroccan treats for breakfast.

Enjoyed it very much, nice room, well decorated. Khadija is adorable, always available to send you to the right restaurant or give you information about Essaouira and the region. The riad is spot in the centre of the Medina in a quiet street, and a pleasant short walk away from the beach. Will definitively stay again.
