Hotel Orson Welles
Ranked #121 of 179 Essaouira B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 6, 2012

There are many cheaper hotels in medina. And it makes this hotel not very attractive. Looks like it has no clients for some time when we arrive, so roooms without good ventilation had a specific smell.
Wide rooms, short distance to the beach are advantages of this hotel.

A hotel of charm and beauty furnished with local produce.Absolutely friendly & welcoming staff. Continental breakfast served in the quaint café.The restaurant was not open during my stay so cannot comment.Lovely garden on the rooftop carefullly looked after by a very nice lady.
The hotel is situated on a busy main road about 20 minutes walk from the town centre & the medina.Taxis are very cheap and plentiful.
The rooms are clean but can be a little noisy at night due to the traffic on the main road.
Near the hotel there are many shops, a supermarket and several cafés & restaurants.
All the staff are very pleasant and helpful and always available to advise.

Room Tip: Room with fixed shower above the bathtub.Poor lighting in room make it difficult for make-up & s...

This hotel represents great value for money and i must comment on how helpful and friendly the staff were.

The location of the hotel is 5 mins walk from the beach and about 25 mins from the medina (taxis are readily available from outside the hotel).

Decent breakfast and rooms are cleaned daily.
No complaints about this hotel and great for the price
