Hotel Essaouira is a great place to stay. The hotel is beautiful and excellent value for money. The rooms are simple but the courtyard and roof terrace with view and live sound from the Jemaa el Fna makes it perfect. We where there in 2007 and you can only make a reservation by phone (we could only book two days...
