Stayed here one night with my friend. The staff were really friendly and answered any questions we had. The rooms were pleasant and the decor was lovely. We were offered mint tea on the terrace when we arrived! Breakfast on the terrace was terrific in the morning and we got the hotel to arrange a Hammam at their recommended spa... More

Clean and simple with very pleasant staff. Great breakfast on the roof terrace. Front room we stayed in was large (2 adults and 2 children) with good ventilation from two big windows. The tradeoff was that it was a little noisy but what can you expect staying in the Medina? The "inner" rooms are probably much quieter. Nice location. When... More

I stayed here for 2 nights last August (apologies for late review) but only found the business card today with name and details on it. This is a very nice and clean riad set in the Medina of Essaouira. The guys working there were very polite and helpful when offering details and information on the location. As with most riads,...

we stayed a couple of nights, the "bargain" was 550dh + breakfast. rooftop (no sea view) is good and the breakfast served here is the moroccan riad standard: orange juice, coffee, tea, jam, bread, moroccan crêpes/pancakes, cheese. Spacious room, nothing exciting. Cool position inside medina walls. Great background music from the sea shore.

We stayed at Dar Zayna for 1 night whilst in Essaouria. Dar Zayna is a simple, clean raid down an alley from Bab Marrakech. It is also close to the Supratour Terminal, so very convenient for guests arriving by bus from Marrakech. Our Oriental room is quite large, but simple. The WIFI works well in the room. This Riad has... More

Dar Zayna is just off Bab Marrakech.  A charming house, if not for the foul odor coming from the bathroom of the cherazad room, it would have been a wonderful exprience. The annoying smell unfortunately kept me awake most of the night.  The le oriental room my brother and his wife stayed at on the 2nd floor is alright.  The rooftop... More
