The Orson Welles is located on a rather anonymous avenue in Essaouira's new town, not the medina. Even so, parking is easy and free, and it's only a short walk to the beach.
The hotel looks as if someone has put their heart and soul into the decor; my spacious room had a traditional tiled floor, tadelkt bathroom, and beautiful cotton sheets.
It didn't seem as busy as it should have been, especially considering the bargain price. Some of the bathroom fittings (which were mostly in solid copper) had seen better days. The 'bar' and restaurant were deserted and apparently closed. I didn't have time to try breakfast.

The hotel is in a peaceful setting near Essaouira city centre and only 5 minutes walk from the beach. ... more less
