Good 7.6 From 40 reviews

Fair 4.0
Convenient and a nice receptionist/host. Cheapish. However, room was dilapidated, small and smelt a bit damp. Don't pay for a superior room, they all seem basic and small, with the possible exception of the 6 bed room which I didn't see. Not a room to sit in and enjoy: bed, table, no space or view. Functional at best. Floor was clean but fixtures (shelf, taps, toilet seat) all run down, scratched and stained. Breakfast VERY basic. Quick, cheap sleep maybe, but it's not a place to enjoy in itself.

No daily housekeeping as promised
The hosts were very friendly but we were disappointed that there was no daily housekeeping as it stated . We got 3 towels and half a toilet roll when we arrived on Wednesday and no none came near our room before we left on Saturday

Please visit Essaouira and this riad!
Very nice place to stay, good location and the hosts (french couple) extremely friendly and helpful. On our last day we needed to catch an early bus, and would have missed breakfast but the owner was nice enough to have breakfast served earlier for us. That was much appreciated before our long journey on the bus.

Super Lage. Sehr nettes Personal. Großes und nettes Zimmer (oben auf Dachterasse), leider zwar privates Bad, aber nicht ‘ sondern quer über die. Sauberkeit ok. Gebäude könnte eine Renovierung vertragen. Preis-Leistungs-Verhöltnis gut.

Très propre, personnel sympa et riad bien situé. Seul bemol est que le petit dejeuner n'etait servi qu'à partir de 8h30. Pour des lèves tôt et si on souhaite partir tôt pour une escapade c'est dommage mais ça nous a permis d'aller le prendre dans un petit bouiboui proche avec les locaux et c'etait super bon et pour des clopinettes.
