I stayed in this hotel for two nights as we were taking part in an expedition, which finished in Essouira. I honestly cannot praise this hotel enough. Beautifully decorated, with comfortable beds and very clean rooms. The roof terrace was particularly special as it had great views of the city. And being within the walls of Medina, you had to...

Riad Nakhla features ocean view terrace breakfasts, comfortable beds, and an airy central courtyard shaft, all for ~$24 if you're staying in a single. Did I mention the prime location? Yes, the nearby mosque can be disturbing (advise earplugs - they've saved my sanity in Morocco), but everything interesting in Essaouira is in eminently walkable distance, be it the Skala... More

We found this by accident. The rooms were very nice with beautiful white bed clothes and rose petals! The terrace was fabulous and also had an indoor area. Breakfast was great and served on the terrace. Staff were chatty and friendly and gave us good hammam advice. It was very reasonably priced. The riad itself was beautifully Maintained and located...

I stayed at this Riad recently and had to leave because it was located so close to the mosque I wasn't able to get any decent sleep! The room itself was cold and dark, and the laneway outside smelled of cat's pee. Although the front of house manager (Rashid) is very nice, and the breakfasts are delicious, when it came... More

Lovely hotel! Five star room and impeccable service at a budget price. Compared to other, similarly priced accommodations in the medina, this one Is definitely superior! Wifi everywhere, beautiful terrace, luxurious bedding, immaculate bathroom.... Front desk staff was helpful in recommending restaurants, reputable shops and arranged a wonderful hammam experience for us. Highly recommended

We booked the Riad the day before from Marrakech, only for one night. We mainly considered the price and the location. The room was a triple on the third floor: small and essential. Few decoration on the wall but quite clean (except for a smell of "humidity" that was probably due to the renovation works happening during our stay. No... More

Our Intrepid Travel foodie tour stayed here for 2 nights. My family had 3 rooms. One room had 3 beds for 2 people and a window that faced the ocean. Score one for a nice breeze. We contrasted here as my room was small (no big deal), dark (no exterior window) and damp. My bathroom floor never dried. The bed... More

A group of 6 of us stayed at this hotel and we absolutely loved it. One of our group had badly injured his leg, and the staff of the hotel arranged to meet us from the taxi and walk us to the entrance which was really appreciated. The location of the hotel is perfect - literally seconds from the hustle... More
