Beautifully decorated, clean and peaceful. This comfortable riad was a great find. It's a little more expensive than others but worth it. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely. Thanks for a lovely stay. Oh ps only a little point but I had nowhere to put my toothbrush. Other than that brilliant!

we had a bit of trouble finding the riad when we arrived, however it is well signed so once we got our bearings we had no trouble spotting it. Breakfast included delicous pancakes and fruit which was more than we expected. The room was on the small side- however it was cosy and clean. The Riad is located along a... More

This place is ok, standard, adequate. The only reason I stayed here is because I was a solo traveller and wanted to taken advantage of the lower cost single rooms. But if I had my time again I would find a friend, split the cost and stay somewhere much nicer. The rooms are ok, kind of small, look like they... More

We have just completed a 1700 mile tour round Morocco in a 4WD and this hotel was easily the best stay of our trip. The welcome is warm, the decor is tasteful and the rates are reasonable. Some people may find the rooms a little small but if you want en-suite facilities it will take up some space. This is... More

This Riad was at the outer edges of the Medina and was on a street that had low foot traffic and felt a bit scary at night. The price was quite low but I was expecting something nicer based on the photos posted here. In reality, it is very dim, dank and my room was incredibly small and felt dirty.... More

My husband and I just came back from Morocco and although he has been here before, it was my first experience in a real medina. We arrived in Essaouira close to midnight, hungry and tired. The man who greeted us, Brahim gave us some local currency (we did not have the time to exchange) so that my husband could get... More

This is a great little hotel/riad near the south east walls of the Medina. Only a few minutes walk from the Supratours bus depot and a 5 minute walk to the souks and to the beach where there are plenty of cafes/resturants to suit every budget. Our room was situated on the roof terrace, and although small (particuarlly the bathroom)... More

The website is an extemely airbrushed version of the hotel. It is quite a bit more tired looking than what shows and clever photo angles mean that you cant see just how small the rooms are. Our double bed was pushed to the wall there was only space for 3 people to stand in the room. The rooms are hostel... More
