We stayed two nights at the riad. It was about a 10 minute walk from the bus station and we only got lost once but people were helpful and showed us where to go. The sign for the riad was only facing one direction and of course it was not the direction we were walking. Upon our arrival we were... More

We spent 2 nights at this raid. Before arrival we had sent them an email asking them if they could book a taxi for us from Agadir airport since we had no other means of getting to Essaouira. The taxi driver was waiting for us at the airport and we had a pleasant ride. The riad itself is in the... More

Unfortunately, we were bothered by construction noises in our room and could not use it to take a much needed break from the sun when we returned to the Riad around midday. Also, we had no water to take a shower on several occasions, and the shower head had no wall mount so you had to shower one-handed. Staff were... More

Centrally located Riad with comfortable rooms, good breakfast on roof terrace, staff were friendly and helpful, mint tea on arrival. The room was on the small side for a triple but bathroom was good with plenty of hot water

I stayed here with a friend for a week a couple of years ago for the music festival and a few days to chill. It was quite hard to find and it is worth paying a porter to help you with your bags etc. We were given a room on the top floor of the terrace and seemed to have... More

this has some bad points, but the kindness of the staff compensate, for example the room was not ready by 14h30, but the man in the reception cooked us moroccan tea to apologize, which we really appreciated. the standard rooms are so small that I felt I would lack oxygen during the night, and the sunlight enters the room unavoidably...

I had the large room to myself. 1 single bed and 1 queen. In the heart of Medina. Just below my window where I can witness all the happening of the medina at my own comfort. Though it can get noisy but it was a my company since I traveled solo. Love the decor. Love the cleanliness. Love everything about... More

Chose this partly due to price as we are a family of six, and it was very reasonable especially as breakfast was included. Staff were friendly and we communicated well spite no English being spoken. All our rooms were clean and well presented, although ours (no1) was the smallest and smelt slightly damp. Beds were clean and made daily by... More

We booked here last minute because the Riad where we had originally booked wouldnt bring our booking fwd by one night without adding a hefty charge. The riad was within easy walking distance from the bus station, and nestled in a labyrinth of streets right in the heart of the medina. The staff were so very welcoming, by far the... More

I stayed one night at this riad. The room (no 4) was clean but smell was terrible. High humidity, probably because of proximity to the ocean. Good location in the heart of Medina, easy to find. Breakfast was ok on rooftop. Very friendly staff. Wifi only available at reception area.
