I first stayed here 8 years ago. Every time I return to Marrakech, if there's an open room, I make sure to stay here. It's located on a back alley with several other hotels. The common refrain from people who are dissatisfied with other hotels and move to Hotel Essaouira is that they were paying as much as double for a significantly less lovely hotel. We paid 100Dh/night for three nights for a double. We had a room that had a window on the street. My wife had trouble sleeping with all the noise from foot-traffic, but I loved hearing the sounds of a Moroccan city. The second night, we switched to an interior room with a window on the courtyard. It was VERY nice.
It needs to be said that the hotel, rooms, bathrooms and sheets are all very old. That's what I expect any time I'm staying in a medina, as opposed to a ville nouvelle. If you know what you're getting into, this is a wonderful hotel!
