We were greeted with mint tea and delicious pastries. We had the room on the terrace - the Terrasse suite. The room was nice with a wonderful terrace. Unfortunately though, the room and bathroom smelled. The bathroom was not too clean too - there were hairs and I'm super eeky when it comes to hairs. It's a pity cos the room was nice and cosy and the terrace was wonderful with a perfect view. I must warn you though that you have to climb several flights of stairs to reach the room so it was quite tiring but the view is worth it. We asked for the fireplace to be lighted up the next day but were given firewood and had to light it up ourselves. The wifi signal though is wonderful, we could surf the net on our laptop and mobile devices even on the lovely terrace! We do appreciate that a lot.
There is a harmless cat hanging around the hotel so if you are very afraid of cats, you may want to think twice. The location is very good as it's near an open space and near a lot of things. We didn't eat their breakfast as we chose to eat out on the first day and on the second day, we waited and waited but since we were not served with breakfast and we were in a hurry, we left without breakfast.Not all the staff were smiley but the guys are reception were very nice and helpful. Unfortunately though, we may not come back to Palazzo Desdemona even though we love Essaouira. We may try a different riad/hotel.
