Frankly I don't understand how there is so many positive reviews for this hotel. Palais des Remparts was unfriendly, beds uncomfortable, atmosphere quite depressing and the premises much in need of repair. The best things about this hotel is the location. We were greeted without a smile or a hello, instead we got "fill out this form". Once we were... More

the best views in Essaouira. I have been coming for many years! this will definitely be where I will stay from now on. large beautifully decorated rooms. Impeccable service! The breakfast is wonderful..the panoramic views of the crashing waves..just be careful the seagulls love butter! The staff is professional and very friendly. I will return SOON!

The hotel sports a very nice rooftop terrace with a splendid view over the city, the ramparts and the sea. It's also open to non hotel guests. Very good place to have a morning coffee since they serve the best coffee in town, including a bottle of water for a very reasonable price.

So sad that we only have to stay here for only a night. I could stay here for weeks or make it my home. This is located just a few steps away from the medina. The rooftop offers a spectacular view of the ocean.. It really gets cold at night but they have provided heaters in the rooms. The dinner... More

We were part of a group of 10 photographers, and spent our first two nights in Morocco in this lovely hotel. Breakfast and dinner were included in our room, and both were very good. Breakfast was served in a glassed-in section of the rooftop, and dinner was in a small dining room on the first floor. We learned during our... More

In the middle of the old medina, beautiful welcoming riad, loads of charm and very professional staff. Beautiful rooms, great terrace where one can really understand the city, The rooms are large and beautifully furbished, A realm pleasure, quiet hotel with good food too. One m-of my "coup de coeur" in Morocco.

Stayed two nights at the end of a fifteen-day G Adventures tour. The two things we liked the best about Palais des Remparts were its location in the Medina, which was within easy walking distance of most sites, and the rooftop terrace from which you could gaze out over the Atlantic and Sqala on one side and the Medina on...

Beautiful views from the terrace to take in the ocean view. The rooms were large and clean. The staff were very friendly and provided maps. Enjoyed being in the heart of the Medina. A 10 minute walk to galleries, fishing port and the beach. You can shop until you drop in the medina. Breakfast was ample and the lobby is... More
