The hotel has excellent staff, the beds are comfortable. We rented a room on the top floor, the only thing that needed was wifi in the rooms. It is close to culture although not so easy to find if you get lost. It is not so far from the beach, it is near about 4 good shops highly recommended if... More

The people in the Riad Asmitou are very friendly and helpful. Our room was a very nice one and very clean as well (they even clean it every day!!) We had a very good breakfast and enjoyed our stay very much.

Riad Asmitou was an excellent place to stay in Essaouira. We were on the 2nd floor which we would recommend as the terrace had beautiful views of the medina. The room was clean, comfortable and the shower so wonderful! Breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. It was great value and I would recommend this riad highly.

Amazing place to stay as it is right in the Medina one street away from the main street. The breakfast is amazing and don't the miss the fire place if you go there in the winter.

We stayed at Riad Asmitou for 1 night in february. As it was off-season, the price was surprisingly low (350 Dh). The entrance hall is spacious and chic, a real patio. Our room (first floor) was amazing, beautifully furnished and clean. The personel was really nice and helpful. The only downpoint is that the birds in a treue opposite of... More

We are a couple and booked the family room. It was spacious, had an extra bed a heater, wifi, beautifully decorated. Although it was not an issue for us, the bathroom had no door. The toilet was in a separate enclosure with an open ceiling, meaning you could hear everything. Aside from that, it was a great room. The breakfast... More

We stayed for two nights. Upon arrival, I was delighted with the Riad - clean, chic, calm and the staff were really friendly. However, we chose badly with the room, which was right next to reception. It meant that we had the noise from the dining room at all hours and people walking past. It is a very small room,... More
