Very friendly manager, Hassan, but privacy may be an issue for some guests. It's a little unnerving to hear others whispering in bed or brushing their teeth. The windows open onto a tiny courtyard well and bathrooms and private seating areas are screened only with curtains. Wi-Fi during our visit was rather unreliable.

Hi and thanks for your kind post especially the part dedicated to the team! I would just say.. that in any riads, you might encounter some "raisonnance" and can hear sometimes.. or the medina or some people in.. which should not be annoying too much dear friend! Regarding the Wifi, the reviewer is right and the problem is fixed. Cheers,Oliver&Hassan. More

The alley the Riad is in smells like a toilet! The owners are very welcoming but it was a bit claustrophobic. After my shower I had to get into the bedroom to dry off as I could not do this in the bathroom (really just a toilet with a tiny shower attached). The only ventilation was with a window onto...

Hi and first thanks for your review. To answer.. the guest is pretty right as there was a huge problem of water in all Essaouira at the period of his stay. Means.. no pression in all the city for four days which explains the problem. sorry about it! Even if not the guilty ones.. we understand. the problem is solved... More

We stayed for 4 nights at this Riad and were extremely impressed by the hospitality of the hosts. Hassan was very accommodating and let us stay late into the afternoon on the day of our journey back. When you book make sure you ask for directions though, as it is almost impossible to find independently as there is no sigh... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at the riad. It is conveniently situated in the medina, the staff are very friendly and the breakfast is amazing. We were given the loft studio for the first couple of nights which is light and airy, but the bathroom is a bit cramped. For our last night we were moved to... More

The Riad is small and friendly. Tucked away in the old town it is like walking back in time through arches and the covered alleyway to the front door, but all up to date inside. The two staff are very considerate to your needs - offering help or having a friendly chat (Hassan has good English), and giving you space... More

This was a great find. i booked online, last minute as I tend to do when i travel. The Riad is clean and very nicely decorated. It is nicely kept and clean.

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of July. When I booked it there were only 3 reviews on Tripadvisor but I liked the sound of it and wasn't disappointed. We took the suite on the top floor and although it took 3 flights of stairs it was worth it. Yes the toilet/shower room was a little cramped... More
