Purely by coincidence, we heard about this lovely place the heart of the medina in Essaouira. We planned to go from Taghazout to Essaouira and another couple we met recommended this place to us. It was one of the nicest places we stayed at of our two weeks travelling. The location is absolutely perfect, the beach is walking distance and... More

Great value Riad in a wonderfully central location, staffed by truly lovely people. The staff are so kind, warm and willing to do anything to make you happy. The staff keep the place immaculately clean, provide delicious filling breakfasts (included in the price) and are very informative and helpful. The rooms are well-spaced, very well kept and are cleaned obsessively... More

We stayed here 3 years ago. On return to essaouira we looked at a few other raids before returning here, the staff a lovely and the street itself is right in the heart of the medina.

This place has a very friendly feel and represents very good value for money. It is right in the heart of the medina (so don't expect it to be super quiet), but the beds were comfortable, the rooms clean and the breakfasts on the terrace great (you can't beat Moroccan bread and honey or orange juice squeezed on the spot)....

Even if I had to walk up some 50 steps to get to the terrace it was worth it. Located in the midst of the Medina it is not easy to find, but that is how it goes in the Medinas. The room was lovely, the service good, could have stayed longer if they were not already fully booked. Very... More

We booked this Riad for our one night stay in Essaouira and we were satisfied with what we got. The location is great in the middle of Medina. We had 3 rooms (7,8,9) on the top floor and the rooms were quite OK. One of them had no window to the outside but only to the inner staircase which resulted... More

This riad is in a great location in the heart of Essaouria, close to all the windings streets and cafes, and not far from the port and beach. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were friendly. The only thing that let it down was that the top room (where we stayed) gets a lot of noise from seagulls ALL... More

We had booked to stay for 7 nights but had to leave after one night. A group of men congregated outside our room, sniffing glue, smoking weed and drinking. The noise became unbearable, so got dressed and went to reception, security said this happens all the time and the police do nothing, he did ring the police straight away and... More

We stayed for two nights and booked through booking.com. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and spacious. For the price (bout 25 euros), this hotel is a steal! Just be prepared not to get a great nights sleep, but this is probably the same anywhere in the Medina.

We stayed for 2 nights. When we arrived at this Riad, the receptionist told us "hot water is not working at the moment, but it will recover at 10pm". But when we came back from a short walk around 11pm, not only the hot water, but the shower itself did not work! It happened quite regularly during our stay. When... More
