Tucked away in a nook in the old markets.... That's the best part! An ancient raw market, then a GEM of a place! Super super staff! Yousef was so hospitable along with the rest of the staff. The owner came out to personally meet and greet me and make sure all my needs were met. She really cared and emailed... More

A charming, reasonably-priced riad in the heart of the medina only a short walk from the sites, souks and port. The rooms were tastefully decorated, and perfectly clean. Yusef’s appearance each morning brought a smile to our faces, and breakfast on the roof is lovely. We actually enjoyed our stay enough that we changed our plans to stay an extra... More

We arrived in Swira with an apartment booked, but it didn't quite do it for us, so after one night we cast around for somewhere bright, welcoming and nicely Moroccan in an unchallenging way. We were so lucky to find this. It's a lovely tall Riad on four floors plus terrace, built round a central staircase, flooded with light from... More

The living room of the place is unique and nice but that's just about it for the Riads structure. Room was extremely small and had no window viewing the outside. Room walls are thin so any person passing can hear what you are talking or doing inside the room. Generally Morrocco is farly cheap but in compare to other places... More

Dar Liouba is a beautiful little Riad in the heart of busy Essaouira Medina, short walk from Bab (Gate) Marrakech. For the foreigner, like myself not familiar the the concept of Medina at first, it wasn't easy to locate ...seek more accurate directions before arriving. Spotlessly clean and well managed, it is central to everything you would like to explore... More

It is great, really pleasant and the people who work at the hotel are really nice to the guests. It is a bit hard to find at first, but it is great to be in the heart of the city. The receptionists inform you very well about what is worth visiting.

We traveled to Essaouria from Marrakech via hired car. This Riad is in the walled Medina, which is a walking area only. We entered the Medina from the main parking lot, which is opposite from the water. Take the third right, then the first right, then the second right. Sounds daunting, but a porter quickly loaded our luggage onto a... More

I travelled to Essaouira with my girlfriend, we got to the central bus station and it was a total caos getting to the city center, once there a man asked us what were we looking for, so we told him the street where Dar Liouba is and he took us there, for free. Entering this Dar was like getting into... More

Our stay at Dar Liouba has been excellent. The owners are such nice people and they do their best to fulfill al your wishes. Upon arrival, we were welcomed with tea and information about the city. Our room was spacious, very clean, light and had a nice bed. The lobby is also decorated beautifully and feels very "homesy". Breakfast can... More
