The hotel is very centrally located, the staff were friendly and the rooms were clean. There is a nice central area for sitting and eating or meeting others. My one complaint is the wifi only worked in the central reception area and not in either of the two rooms I occupied during my stay. Having wifi is an essential aspect... More

We three arrived on a Saturday late afternoon at the public bus terminal and using Maps With Me found a cafe on the new square (by the sea wall to the North eat of the medina gate) with Internet and a loo. Morocco v Cape Verde was in all the bars so an exciting atmosphere (1-0 in the end!). The... More

We paid 22 Euro including taxes and breakfast for two people. not so good: - lack of coverage wi-fi in our room, nnot many sockets in the room and in the comman areas and restaurant. - The room had only one small windows which caused a lack of ventilation, creating a damp feeling at times. - We didn't manage to...

This accommodation is in my view, is excellent value for money for the traveller who is happy with a good basic Riad, that is central in location, it is just off one of the main streets in the Medina. Once you have located this place, it is then easy to find, which is always a plus for me, as I... More

If you just need a bed and shower, you get value for money. Otherwise pay a little bit more for more luxury. Room and bathroom are of decent size. Breakfast included but basic. Not the best acoustic, a bit noisy sometimes. Good location though.

One of the best place where I have been! Staff extremely friendly (Kamal n°1), gorgeous location, very clean rooms, and the best breakfast never had in my life, cooked by the holy hands of Fatima! Every time I will be back to Essaouira I will go to Sidi Magdoul, no doubt about it!

My wife and I stayed here during our stay in Essaouira and would stay here again if we came back. The location is great, in the centre a short walk from the main souks and attractions. The owner was very pleasant and service was excellent. He researched transport options for us back to marrakesh or onward to casablanca. The room... More

It was the most welcoming hotel in Essaouira! Incredibly kind staff, great central location and rooms! Thank you!! I will definitely be staying here again. The staff was fasting and even though I missed breakfast they made me a wonderful breakfast which was included in the price.

Although the rooms were not really filthy, they were not clean either. There was a lot of dust/sand everywhere and the bathroom was very primitive, old fashioned and contained some gross spots. There was no Wi-Fi reception in the room, only on the main ground. Only 1 towel, no hotel soaps, .... These points withstanding, the hotel does have it's... More

This most centrally located accommodation is a great place to stay while in Essaouira. Do not expect loads of creature comforts but what you do get is a clean comfortable basic room in an atmospheric setting. Having experienced breakfast elsewhere in Morocco I loved the breakfast here. The staff were exceedingly helpful and obliging.
