“In the heart of Essaouira”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

It was a bit hard to find the place but as moroccan people are friendly and helpful we found someone who called Dar Ichraq and led us there.
It is in a narrow street very near the big place and the car parking. The authentic decoration is fantastic as you enter. You can climb to the top from where there is a nice view of the roofs and the ocean as well. We had a traditional moroccan breakfast in the morning - we liked it very much. It is an ideal place to explore the medina and the beach and is really the cheapest you can find!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Essaouira. The location of the Riad was excellent being inside the walled part of the city near the port and all of the action. It is down a tunnel and a bit hard to find if you are not looking for it. The staff was very friendly and professional. The rooms are very thin but we spent little time in there and the terrace had plenty of room to stretch out. However, the view from the terrace was not great . I would like to see better lighting in the rooms. The low light made the rooms seem a bit dirty even though they looked well cleaned upon closer inspection.

this small riad is one of the cheapest alternatives if you choose to stay a few days in essaouira, it is situated in a dark street in the old medina.
The only problem is that i have settled my bill in cash on the day of departure and what a surprise three days later to find they have billed me again on my credit card.....
A very bad experience and I still don't know what to do against them as I didn't request a receipt....
