The hotel is easy to locate, and has a decent location as well( bit dirty outside the hotel - but clean inside). The hotel itself is traditional and the room we stayed in was beautiful and very clean. The staff is very nice, polite and helpful. Service quality is excellent. Breakfast served was good according to Moroccan standards. The only... More

Riad Asmitou is a nicely renovated riad in the middle of the Medina in Essaouira. The service was exceptional and breakfast good (typical Moroccan, but also with yugurt and fresh orange juice). The decoration is stylish, with each room different from the others. The location could not be better, just 1-2 minutes walk from the main street of the Medina.... More

We stayed here for one night arriving later in the evening. There was confusion about our booking, we had booked a family room for 4 and on arrival we were told they did not have any family rooms! Unfortunately the night porter spoke no english and even the day staff had trouble explaining the situation. Good location but many stairs... More

Just inside the medina walls, this riad is in a fairly good location and the directions on te website are fabulous. The rooms are clean, although there was a few ants in the bathroom. The breakfast was huge and quite lovely. The Internet was a bit sporadic, but it seems to be the norm throughout Morocco. My only complaint is... More

Great Riad; very good value for dollar. Fantastic front desk manager that speaks fluent English and is only too helpful to make your stay in Essouria as easy as possible. Located in back streets of the old town, yet easily accessible. When making reservation, request a back room, as front room/corner faces onto local street watering hole (that operates 24/7).... More
