I stayed here in a double room for 3 nights in June after making my booking through booking.com. Upon check out the hotel receptionist requested I pay my hotel room charge in local currency (dirhams) despite having in advance my MasterCard credit card details through the booking.com site and I was happy to do so. However it was not until...

The place is cheap which is great. The rooms however are quite ugly and problematic. Both rooms we checked, the windows had huge gaps and didn't close well. This means that on the (really) cold February night we had to turn the heater to the maximum, cover with two bedcovers and close the curtains to partially stop the crazy flow...

Nice riad with very nice people. Good value for money, they clean the rooms daily and the breakfast is good (and included in the price). Location is perfect in the medina, would recommend to stay here! We also did the cooking workshop to know how to cook a tajine which was fun. Don't expect it to be difficult though ;)

Stayed there for 2 nights. I was charged for one night in advance, but during the checkout the host insisted that I was not charged and therefore I should pay for 2 nights. After lots of arguing he finally agreed. So, if I hadn't checked my bank account, I would have overpaid. Soon after arrival I noticed that my wallet...

Purely by coincidence, we heard about this lovely place the heart of the medina in Essaouira. We planned to go from Taghazout to Essaouira and another couple we met recommended this place to us.
