Excellent location, lovely rooms and really helpful staff. Essaouira is an easy laid back place to stay and this is a good place to be based. Good roof terraces, good breakfast and Nadine and Claudia a mine of information on where to eat and much else besides. Very welcoming. Could easily have stayed longer.

My husband and I were so impressed with the lovely Riad Baladin. We arrived late in the evening and were welcomed by Claudia. She was so helpful and gave us a thorough run-down of the Medina (how to navigate, where to shop, good places to eat-- places that we would not have found had we tried to navigate it on... More

I chose this Riad for its high ratings and I was not a bit disappointed. On the contrary, I would echo all the glowing reviews from previous guests. It's a coastal rustic inn with nice Moroccan touches, bright comfortable, central, peaceful, and decorated with artistic flair in great taste. The inn manager Nadine shared that most of the art and... More

Riad Baladin is a quite stunning place - the photographs on the website don't do it justice. Our host Nadine had been so helpful via email prior to our arrival, and she remained so during our stay. Nadine advised us on some nice restaurants and was always friendly and chatty. The Riad is in a nice location and it is... More

Riad Baladin is located in the heart of Essaouira and it did not disappoint us. Our host Claudia was very kind and even pointed out great typical not-so-touristic restaurants. Inside, the place is very calm, beautifully decorated, and breakfast on the terrace is unforgettable. Highly recommended! Rui and Teresa, Lisbon

The staff were very hospitable and helpful. One of the most enjoyable things about the stay was the delicious breakfast (muesli, fresh fruits, yoghurt, coffee and... More

Riad Baladin was an amazing hotel for our stay in Essaouira. After 3 days on a Sahara tour we were in need of some luxury and R&R, and Baladin was perfect. Nadine was so lovely and helpful, gave us fantastic recommendations for food and activities and was on hand to help with anything we needed. The Riad itself is clean,... More

The Riad was beautiful, bright and wonderful. The staff was extremely helpful, providing a map and explaining the city to us. I would highly recommend Riad Baladin to anyone regardless of budget - it was a gem.

The Riad is not just central but located in one of the most inspiring and artful neighborhoods. Nadine, the manager, is welcoming, caring and perfectly taking care of her guests - and our wishes and needs. We enjoyed a delicious dinner in Ilmare, which was recommended by Nadine and a lovely prepared breakfast in the Riad before we departed. I... More

I loved how light and open the rooms feel, and I truly enjoyed Nadine's sincere hospitality. Location-wise, Baladin is in a serene and central spot, and the terrace is really lovely! One thing to remember is to bring your own shampoo/conditioner as these are not supplied.There was an issue with the wifi on my first night, however Nadine had it... More
