I was staying in Dar El Qdima twice. First time it was the choice of the travel company we were doing the tour with. Coming back to Essaouira on our own, it was not a question where we are staying again. Staff is incredibly helpful. They even took the bag to be repaired and adviced the place for haircut. Beside...

As a "budget" traveller I never thought I'd be able to stay in a place as beautiful and comfortable as this. Friendly, welcoming staff, nice breakfast, beautiful room looking on to geranium filled terrace, lovely en- suite bathroom, very reasonable price.

Situated right in the Medina with everything you need or want close by, I found this accidently and am so glad I did. Comfortable, clean, quiet, beautifully decorated with two rooftop terraces, local art, great breakfast and wonderful staff. Highly recommended and very affordable!

Had an amazing experience all around. We are a couple that travels quite often and we are mostly looking for places with a good standard for the money spent, and this experience was top notch. The plan was to stay 1-2 nights but we ended up staying the rest of our travel here. Very clean riad with nice rooms in... More

Lovely stay in this Riad. I had a single room which was quite small with a single bed however it was comfortable and all I needed. The location of the Riad was great. Breakfast was simple but good. The only downside was you can hear everything from your room but that is the design of the hotel.

I had the opportunity to spend some time in this riad when I was in town for a short rest stop. Rashids was very gracious host and extremely helpful. While I was not lucky enough to see the rooms, based on my experience there I will be 100% sure to book my next stay in Essaouria at this riad. Wonderful!

Well situated in the heart of Essaouira in a lovely traditional riad. Despite being central is was still in a quiet street. This hotel has beautiful rooms, lovely staff and a delicious breakfast. I felt right at home in this well-priced riad

I stayed for 1 night, however I wish I could have stayed much longer. The property is very centrally located and laid out in a way that is both cozy and spacious at the same time. There are many little details that add to the atmosphere of the place. The room allocated was quite large and airy. The bathroom had... More

Our room was small but charming, cute nooks and a beautiful mirror. The shower was a free form sculpture of cement. Very unique but that's what we love. Interesting touches in the rooms. The public space contained some beautiful statues and artwork. Not luxury but comfortable. The location is great, you are in the medina and walking distance to most... More
