This was our 2nd experience of a riad in Morocco,booked on airbnb.. Our stay at Riad Asmitou was better than first impression/expected... Although we never meet Carole(apparently has other business's), the 2 girls/Soukaina on reception were very helpful & made our stay very good along with the night porter... Our room was very nice & comfortable during the day,1 floor... More

Riad Asmitou was an excellent place to stay in Essaouira. We were on the 2nd floor which we would recommend as the terrace had beautiful views of the medina. The room was clean, comfortable and the shower so wonderful! Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. It was great value and I would recommend this riad highly.

Amazing place to stay as it is right in the Medina one street away from the main street. The breakfast is amazing and don't the miss the fire place if you go there in the winter. We loved the bakery that makes the bread when you come from the main street to the riad. We were not very lucky about... More

We stayed at Riad Asmitou for 1 night in february. As it was off-season, the price was surprisingly low (350 Dh). The entrance hall is spacious and chic, a real patio. Our room (first floor) was amazing, beautifully furnished and clean. The personel was really nice and helpful. The only downpoint is that the birds in a treue opposite of... More

We are a couple and booked the family room. It was spacious, had an extra bed a heater, wifi, beautifully decorated. Although it was not an issue for us, the bathroom had no door. The toilet was in a separate enclosure with an open ceiling, meaning you could hear everything. Aside from that, it was a great room. The breakfast... More

We stayed for two nights. Upon arrival, I was delighted with the Riad - clean, chic, calm and the staff were really friendly. However, we chose badly with the room, which was right next to reception. It meant that we had the noise from the dining room at all hours and people walking past. It is a very small room,... More
