    Beautiful boutique Riad in the heart of Essaouira

  • 8.0.Very good

    Wunderschönes und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Haus, sehr höfliches und freundliches Personal, tolles Frühstück, tolle Küchlein und sehr viel Liebe fürs Details. Gute Lage mitten in der Medina, perfekt. Leider ist das Haus durch ein nachträgliches aufgesetztes Glasdach über dem Innenhof sehr schlecht durchlüftet, es riecht wie im Schwimmbad immZimmer und alle Sachen werden Klamm, das ist sehr schade und hat uns gestört.

    Spitzenunterkunft in Essaouira

    Das Riad Emotion in Essaouira hat uns ausgezeichnet gefallen. Trotz der sehr zentralen Lage ist es ruhig. Das Frühstück war sehr lecker und reichlich. Die Restaurantempfehlungen von Gisèle haben sich als vorzüglich erwiesen.
