This is one of the nicest hotels I've staid in during our Morocoo trip. Great location, but not easy to find. If you have at least an idea where you want to go, then it is possible, but you would probably not find it by accident. Rooms are nice and clean, what is all I expect :) There is no... More

This hotel was was very cozy and beautiful, especially given the low price. It is also well positioned in the old medina and the staff is very helpful. Great views during breakfast on the roof. My only complain is that construction was going on while I was there and it made it impossible to sleep in or take an afternoon... More

Rachid and Abdul looked after us from the moment we arrived on their doorstep in the middle of the night until we left a few days later. Our room was lovely and cleaned spotlessly every day. Breakfast on the terrace was a special treat Great value and lovely people 😃.

Great little guesthouse ideal for the sites around Essaouria, with a rooftop area for breakfast and chillin out. It has character being within the old walled part of town. Some of the rooms are small but its a good value hotel.

OK its not the Hilton. Some rooms are small and yes there can be a bit of noise outside from the street but this place suited us for 4 nights on our trip around Morocco. What made it for us was the staff. Super friendly and nothing was too much hassle. Even arranged a last minute quad biking tour after... More

Stayed here for two nights in September 2013. Really nice place -- don't understand all the negative reviews -- it's almost as if there are two Riad Nakhla's... Was given a double room for the price of a single. Beautifully decorated -- approaching mid-range standard at a budget price. Spacious bathroom, reliable hot water and wifi, perfectly clean (room cleaned... More

We looked around a few places, most were full or over our budget. Plenty of random guys would hand us business cards, the rates offered were decent but we're not too big on touts so we kept looking around. It didn't seem like much from the alley (which looks a bit dodgy I have to admit) but once inside we... More
