Situated on the entrance to the medina you couldn't ask for a better location. Very helpful friendly staff,with a nice breakfast and plenty of extra coffes or there's of your nation. Clean and very fresh balcony air. Great value not one bad word.

Stayed at hotel Nakhla in November based on impressions in the lonely planet. Price seemed reasonable for location and room size. Entrance lobby is a decent moroccan style courtyard, terrace affords good views over the town and sea. However, room 5, was found to be a disaster. First of all it is a very dark and gloomy room, the lighting... More

But the manager was so very nice after my distress... More

Staff were very helpful and gave us a room last minute. Nice, clean rooms & a beautiful rooftop terrace. Excellent location, just a few steps away from the bustling market streets but still quiet once inside the riad. It's also just across from Elizir restaurant which we would highly recommend! Good value for money.

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.
