I booked a twin room for one night and when we got there it was so nice we decided to stay a second night. Communication with staff is a little tricky in english (everyone speaks french and arabic) so we had a bit of a miscommunication about our second night - but then they upgraded us to an even nicer...

Nice riad with very nice people. Good value for money, they clean the rooms daily and the breakfast is good (and included in the price). Location is perfect in the medina, would recommend to stay here! We also did the cooking workshop to know how to cook a tajine which was fun. Don't expect it to be difficult though ;)

Stayed there for 2 nights. I was charged for one night in advance, but during the checkout the host insisted that I was not charged and therefore I should pay for 2 nights. After lots of arguing he finally agreed. So, if I hadn't checked my bank account, I would have overpaid. Soon after arrival I noticed that my wallet... More

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

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
