Fantastic road in the heart of the median. The hosts were lovely and unassuming. Rooms large and airy. Unbelievably quiet considering the location. Roof terrace was beautiful and sunny. Very highly recommended

Great place! Very charming, with character. The rooftop terrace is a great place to chill (and dry out clothes, btw). The staff is laid back and very friendly. Informal here, yet also nicely run and very clean. Also wonderfully quiet--tucked in away from the pedestrian road (with no cars around the enclosed town). The complimentary breakfast is very good. Just...

Essaouira is cold during nights in february so they warm our room. Breakfast is very good and traditional. We spented 250 dirham night that...

Centrally located - perfect really. The hotel provides a wonderful breakfast and a beautiful area in which to have it. The staff are kind, helpful and knowledgeable. The shop attached is great too. There are places to sit and relax and just admire the surroundings.

I had booked 2 nights at the Etoile d'Essaouira but the management dismissively told me they were full. They redirected me to the Caverne, which despite the slightly cheesy name turned out to be friendlier anyway. It's so called because you go through an arcade of traditional shops and emerge in daylight with the rooms overlooking the central courtyard, as...

We stayed here for a week in November 2016. As we stayed the whole week, were were given the choice of moving to a larger room with an external window (external windows are unusual in riads) for now extra charge. The propritor was friendly and gave us instructions on how to find a real hamam (not a touristic one) which...

A friend and I stayed for the weekend at this wonderful Riad. It's centrally located, the rooms are clean, and the hosts are friendly. We arrived late around 10:30pm Friday night and were immediately shown our room and offered tea. It was perfect. Breakfast was included and a great start to the day. Our room was made while we were...

Hotel is easy to find, located on the main street of medina. Rooms are uniquely decorated, but don't have a/c. Temperature in summer is quite bearable, but it tends to be bit humid. In the base price there are included wifi and breakfast. Staff is very nice and helpful.

Where to begin! This was a real find and we were very grateful for all that they offered. Located just on the edge of everything you need, it is quieter than other places. The rooms are spacious and lovely - we ended up staying 3 extra nights, it was so good. Besides great service, amazing breakfast, and lovely rooms what...
