We booked on the day through a hotel website and were prepared for a basic experience. It turned out to be the best value basic experience we had. We checked in easily with the multilingual hosts - the rooms were wonderfully decorated with four-post beds, clean bathrooms, and adeqaute blanket supply. The terrace is a nice getaway, and the riad...

It's my 3rd time at riad Sidi Magdoul, at the terrace room that I love. The owners and staff are the most kind and professional, each one and as team. This was also what made me come back as they make you feel home, in the most friendly and clean environment, respecting your privacy, always available, keeping it peacefully warming...

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...

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...

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.

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.
