The Riad has real character. The owners, Jerome and his wife supplied us with maps and marked all the best restaurants to go to also a great vegetarian one that was close to the hotel and turned out to be my favourite! I loved breakfasts on the rooftop terrace although it

We stayed 3 nights at the riad Lyon Mogador and loved it. We found the owners and staff very welcoming and helpful. The riad is beautiful, and although we had chosen the cheaper rooms with internal windows, they were as described, spotlessly clean and cosy. The roof terrace is

A few days before our check-in date, I indicated on Booking.com the time at which that I would be checking-in at Riad Lyon-Mogador, which was 8-9pm. The reason for that was because I was making my way to Essaouira from the desert and I surely was not going make it by 7pm.

As you can see by the owner’s comment on the review below, you can see the kind of attitude you get at this place. His passive aggressive attitude did not make me feel welcome at this Riad. After traveling Morocco for 12 days, this is the worst hospitality I’ve received from an

Dear Hector, Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at the Riad, although it is absolutely not what you told us when you were with us... Let us try to answer your points : - As soon as you booked, we sent you a message of acknowledgement, saying thanks for the booking and please come back to us if you need any information. You never answered. - One day prior to your arrival, we sent you another message, asking you your approximate arrival time, and pointing out our check-in hours (2pm to 7pm). Again, you never answered. - You gave us wrong credit card details and we had to ask the OTA to contact you about it - You did call on the night of your arrival, and we gave you full details for parking and coming to us; we just mentioned incidentally that check-in hours were already past. - Upon arrival, it was more than difficult to find a smiling face on any of you; you might have been exhausted by your trip, but it had nothing to do with us and to be frank, we saw grim faces during the whole of your stay, and our staff shared that impression with us several times... You never interacted with over guests, barely said "hello" when we greeted you every morning, and to tell you the truth, were quite noisy at night even though we had other people sleeping. - The problem with the flushing toilet was solved within minutes of your reporting, it is untrue to say nothing was done, and you never mentioned it again. When you left, it was working perfectly well, so we guess you had no further problem. So thank you for sharing your experience, we always take guests' remarks into consideration. But we also were very disappointed, this is not what we expect from our job as a guest house, we and all our staff felt like being badly considered despite our efforts, and used like any impersonal hotel in the world. Thank god, as you can read, most of our guests have a different point of you. No need to come back, of course. Best regards Karol & Jerome
