“Fantastic Riad with even better staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

We stayed in this beautiful Riad for 2 days and were very happy with the room and service we received.
On the arrival we were offered some mint tea,the staff explained were everything was and told us to feel like at home.
The only drawback was that there was a musty smell coming from the bathroom (no window in it or some sort of ventilation) and couldn't have window in the bedroom open as it faced the hall that everyone on that floor was walking by.
Also would recommend a bit more variety for breakfast that was served on the rooftop with great views.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

We stayed in Dar Assalama for 2 nights during our car trip from Agadir to Marrakesh in the beginning of May 2010. Omar is a very friendly person, he recommended us all the best places and restaurants to visit in Essaouira. He speaks a very clean English. The rooms are clean and beautiful, the lounge zone on the roof is relaxing and has a cinema-like view on the city. One more bonus of staying in Dar Assalama was the absence of a strict check-out time, which is a very pleasant thing when you're in a car trip.
If we decide to come to Essaouira once again we would definitely stay in Dar Assalama.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2010

Small riad in eastern side of Medina converted by French owners initially for their own use, so room fittings ( and shower) are better than expected.This area of the Medina has more local residents than tourists, and is a few streets away from the main souk and Tourist area
In March Essaouira can be damp and a bit chilly from the sea air so the fire Omar lit in the lounge was welcome. The eastern side of the town is less damp than the area closer to the sea wall. All the staff were attentive and Manager Omar has very good local knowledge.
The larger studio rooms have armchairs and coffee table
