Reviewed December 10, 2011

very good location, small hotel in the heart of the medina, fair prices .possible to get a room and a shower out side, and they got rooms with bath and shower.good price compared to what i got. nice breakfast, you pay for extra coffees and juices. do not get a room on the front side coz sometimes noisy. you can ask for a room close to the mosque if you want a wake up call at 5h30 for your prayer. located in the avenue attarine

The location could not be better. Situated in the middle of the shopping and food area, 5 minute walk from the square and the ocean, and close to everything. The only thing is that the hotel is a bit run down, like the bathroom drain not working and flooding the bathroom when we take a shower, and the hotel door lock being a bit finnicky. But it's still a pretty good value from what I've heard (we're here on a tour). Wifi in the lobby is the fastest I've seen so far in Morocco (2.1 Mbps download).

Room Tip: the inner courtyard ones are better since the Grand Mosque speakers are not blaring into your window...

Great spot after having to endure some complete slave driven rubbish AKA Le Maison du Vent, never ever stay there. Horrible owners, nasty, inpolite Italian couple out to cash-in on you. In complete contrast here we have Hotel Souira, excellent service, information, advice, guidance, breakfast and just a breath of fresh air to what we had to albeit very briefly experience.

Stay here it is spot on, the bathroom was a tad pungent and the call to prayer is as it is, but what do you expect.

Great place Hotel Souira, highly recommended it for the price etc. Real value in comparison to many. Well spoken staff in a variety of languages, very lovely, kind, hospitable and friendly.

Thanks for having us, Nick and Vicki xXx

The lobby & rooms looked quite nice but the smell coming from the bathroom was overwhelming. There was also no hot water. The location was good, right in the middle of the medina. There was a mosque's loud speaker literally right next to the hotel so certainly the loudest call to prayer we experienced in our time in Morocco. Delicious jam served with breakfast.

There are lots of dodgy budget choices in Essaouira. The Hotel Souiri is clean and the rooms with shared baths are perfectly acceptable. Great location, wi-fi in the lobby, and helpful staff. Ask to look at rooms as they vary. 37 rue Lattarine 05-24-47-53-39

Stayed here for two nights towards the end of a tour of Morocco.It is set in the Rue Attarine (no. 37) which is a quiteish street near to The Grand Mosque, the Medina and the souks. Also within walking distance are many good restuarants, the harbour and the very wide, windy and clean beach.The hotel reception is small and a bit dark but well operated. The stairs are definitely on the narrow side which was a bit awkward as we had a room on the 3rd floor. The room itself had seen better days but was clean with psycadelic wallpaper and stained glass windows. It overlooked a small alley. Beds were good, linen very clean and fresh and the hotels quiet at night. Have to say the breakfast was a bit poor and we were charged for a 2nd cup of coffee.Our room was about 3 rooms from the large roof terrace which was a great place to relax and catch the sun and atmosphere of this great little town.This hotel is all about location. Stay here and be into anything you want in minutes.

Good location, friendly management and reasonably clean. The best hotel used by Explore Adventure Travel. However not that it means much as the others were health hazzards. Would use again for a no frills long weekend in the sun.
