This hotel is charming, arty, boho chic and very nice. The luxury and high grade lies not with the rooms or ammenities but with the location and views. The hotel has best posiible ocean front location and therrace features amazing uninterrupted views of the ocean. The rooms are nice and clean. The entrance is dark and a bit rough, but... More

I already knew La Maison Des Artistes as I stayed there with a friend a few years ago and we had a great time. Many of my friends have also stayed here and had wonderful experiences. We all keep coming back whenever were in Morocco. Its the only place we stay in Essaouiera. This visit I took the top room... More

We have spent just 1 night at the Maison des Artistes in the Traveller room and we were uncredibly suprised by its romantic and intividual style. It truly captures the spirit of Essaouira. It is important to mention that our host was also fantastic and really took the time to tell us all there is to know about the city... More

We stayed at La Maison des Artistes for 3 days and had great experience. Like the name suggests the whole place has an artistic feel about it, it's full of interesting pictures, sculptures and unusual ways of decorating unusual rooms. The owner is warm and welcoming, the staff very helpful. Some of the rooms have a view on the ocean.... More

One of the best places to stay when in Essaqiura. We stayed in the Ceasar loft which is right at the top of this magnificent riad. The views are exceptional looking over the ramparts and the ocean. With our own private terrace offering views over Essaqiura on one side and the ever changing ocean on the other we really didn't... More

As we wrote in our review following last May's all too brief visit to this riad, we have indeed returned - this time increasing our stay to 3 nights! This relaxing, delightfully quirky accommodation again met all our high expections. All the other 'Excellent' reviews, including our previous one, sum up all that Isabelle has achieved. We can feel the... More

Isabelle runs a wonderful place, overlooking the ramparts of the old medina. She could not have been more helpful and welcoming and ensures the whole atmosphere is warm and easy. Each room has an individual character with many old artefacts. Excellent breakfast served on the terrace and overlooking the sea. When we were there the air coming off the ocean... More

The house is definitely worth to spend more days. Very stylish and cozy. We regret we could only stay there for only one night. It's really relax to sleep in a room with see view and listen the sea hitting the rocks. We had a great experience in the guesthouse. Definitely recommended!! One of the best riad we stay in...

We just loved this place and are planning to visit again. Slightly shabby but all the better for it, totally original and interesting, in a perfect location with the best views of the sea and the sunset. Enchanting. Great breakfast too - you won't need lunch!

Our third visit to amazing Essaouira - a city that has something for everyone. However, it was our first visit to this fabulous gem of a find for accommodation. From the moment we received a genuinely friendly welcome to when we all too soon had to leave to continue our 3 week tour, we felt so relaxed and comfortable. The... More
