Although it can feel a bit cramped, this is a solid riad to stay at if you're visiting Essaouira for a couple of nights. The breakfast was good (not great, the coffee is rather lackluster) and the terrace has a nice view of the medina. The beds were comfortable even though the room/bathrrom could have been cleaned more thoroughly. Great... More

My family of 5 (3 kids under the age of 7) stayed at Riad Baladin in July for 3 nights. Nadine and Harriett were just wonderful. Provided us with great recommendations and just lovely hosts. We enjoyed the great location of the Riad. The lovely lady who served us breakfast on the terrace was also just as wonderful. We very... More

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

We had the most amazing stay at Riad Baladin, the hotel had a very peaceful and calm vibe to it. The location was perfect to explore the medina and we were near great restaurants.

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
