The room was too small, no privacy, you listen the people outside of your door and the opposite, too noisy, the bathroom was awfull. The morning we left there weren't electricity to whole riad!!!! We prepared our things in the dark with our iphone torches!! We ask for a Taxi and he didn't call us!

A lovely place to recover. It's central of the medina. Only 5min to the ports and citywalls. Clean beds, warm water and perfect breakfast at the top of the riad. At the reception we get a citymap with all important Information. Without to ask! They are so friendly. You have to visit.

A lovely Riad in the Medina. Comfy beds, hot showers & a nice complimentary breakfast (Msema & honey/croissant/eggs) with good coffee on the Terrace. I like that this Riad was in the centre of the Medina, it had a nice buzz without being too noisy.

Riad Etoille d'Essaouira is a great option if you're looking for a nice and affordable place in the center of Essaouira. It's easy to find with a sign on the mainstreet. There's always a receptionist. The people who work at the hotel are very friendly and they speak basic English. Rooms are big and cleaned daily. The price for the... More

Well, It's not The Ritz, but this Riad was comfortable and very well located in the heart of the Medina. Shower was gushy and hot (although we found the water more reliably hot in the evening rather than the morning). Bed was comfortable. Breakfast, served on the roof terrace, was excellent. Freshly squeezed orange juice, pain au chocolat, Moroccan crepes,... More

We stayed 4 nights here. The staff were friendly and helpful. The central location was great and you really felt as if you were fully immersed in the towns life. The highlight of the stay at the riad was the yummy and substantial local style breakfast on the terrace. We had a large, bright room on the first floor at... More

This Riad is run by a Moroccan family and that is why you can feel like at home. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed Essaouira from the very heart of the city. The owners can give you good hints on what to do around town, where to go and what to buy. You will get to know the Moroccan... More

We had a beautiful, spacious room with toilet/shower on the first floor and spent a lot of time on the roof-terrace with a view on the hassle in the street below. The two girls working in the kitchen made us very nice breakfast too. It is a nice place in the evening. (tip: the only liqueur-store we found in Maroc... More
