This riad style hotel is superbly located, built into the ramparts of the old medina. Old-fashioned haven of calm inside, palm and fountains in a central courtyard with armchairs to relax in, this area is also used for breakfast in morning. The comfortable and well-appointed bedrooms are situated on the balconies around the courtyard and decorated and furnished in Moroccan... More

L'Huere Bleue is like a French Colonial oasis in the modern world. The hotel and staff exude old world charm and style, e.g. cinema and billiards rooms in the IPad age ! Could imagine Bogart drinking a martini in the Salon Anglais. The rooftop terrace is a great place to relax, lunch and sip a drink in the sun, with... More

This hotel is lovely in every respect from the beautiful bedrooms to the patio or the gorgeous pool terrace. The staff greet with their hands on their hearts and they mean it. Essaouira is a beautiful town and the L'heure Blue is perfectly positioned to enjoy all it has to offer.

Would highly recommend this hotel. My husband and I had an excellent stay over 4 days when visting Essaouira. This is probably one of the best places in town. Great rooms and service. Only small complaint would be that the suite where we stayed was a bit noisy as it was on the 3rd floor and the hotel seemed to... More

Staying in this tucked away jewel was like being transported back in time at least 50 years! Its rooms were spacious and well appointed with a huge bathroom, fireplace, desk and living area! We wished we could have stayed longer than two nights, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Breakfasts were very good with many selections of the freshest fruits, cheeses... More

Beautiful building with large, comfortable rooms and an extensive breakfast in a light and glorious courtyard. As Essaouira is a windy city the fire they lit in our room was an unexpected treat and added to the romance. Ideally situated within the medina yet is has a pool on the roof. The water is very cold but , while not... More

Dropped off from a 50 year old Mercedes. The gate of the Medina was hustle and bustle. Driver paid we were ambushed by porters offering to take us deep within the Medina .

While I found the whole experience of Essaouira a bit of a letdown, L'Heure Bleue was wonderful. It's location is just inside the gates of the old medina - a perfect place to start and finish your walk (the medina itself did not overwhelm me). The staff were very helpful, the room very nice, the interior courtyard beautiful, the restaurant... More

L'Heure Bleue Palais has an unbeatable location right inside the gates of the medina. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a spacious suite with windows facing the street that enters the medina. While some might prefer complete quiet, we loved keeping our windows open so that we could enjoy the sounds of the street. The hotel has a... More
