“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012 via mobile

We had only one night their - but it was awesome. The room was clean and we had a bathroom in suite. Quite small but totally nice. The staff was nice and more than helpful. The breakfast was great and on a very high level. You get your breakfast on the terrace which is another big plus point, cause the terrace is sunny and wonderful. We can recommend this riad to everyone and we would come back. Also the price is more than fair!

Loads of noise from the street, construction noise in the hotel, no hot water on day one, one min of hot water every 5 minutes or so on day two with lots more construction noise. When I got home I found out the manager had double charged me.. I paid cash but he also charged my credit card.. basically theft.

I was in many traditional Riads with beautifully decorated walls and ceilings and wood panels... RIAD ETOILE IS NOT ONE OF THOSE, but rather very basic and plain and dark, you need a torch at the entrance, which is opposite a mens club and massage parlour.

Couldn't sleep. couldn't shower or shave, the worst breakfast in Morocco and a blustery, aggressive unhelpful manager, who tried to charge me twice. Give this one a miss , 0 stars

Room Tip: 1 - Stay away from the moroccan mens club and massage parlour side. 2 - Get a better riad.

stayed 2 nights in october. the riad and the room where lovely. shame about the tv spoilt the feel a little but no one had theirs on while i was there. location is great, room was very nice and clean, as was the bathroom. i looked at a few before i picked this one and was definitely the best and got a good price and double room to myself. staff were lovely. terrace was nice but i suppose if you are after a view over breakfast then this is not the place for you. i had a room with an inside window so i had no noise at all. i would definitely stay again

everyone really friendly and helpful - the breakfast staff particularly were kind. The location is excellent but this also led to some noise. We occupied three rooms, two were really quiet but mine overlooked the street and was noisy until about midnight. Nice room though. You can see from the photos there are a lot of stairs in the building, so consider this if you think stairs are a problem.
Good value, clean and friendly, I would stay there again

Flirtatious and cozy hotel - riad placed in Essaouira's center. Undoubtedly one of the best options of this nice villa attending to quality - price. Wide and clean rooms, with comfortable beds, bathroom with big shower (with curtain!). Varied and abundant breakfast. The whole staff of the riad (Youssef, the girl of the receipt ...) nice and friendly. A brilliant site to remain in Essaouira. Quadruple room = 75 euros.
