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

We stayed here 2 nights, lovely breakfast on the gorgeous roof terrace. Great place for chilling after trekking in the high atlas. location of hotel in centre of old town meant a little noisy at night but we liked being in the hustle & bustle of the city. Not far to walk from supratours bus stop which was handy. Also... More

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
