    Good location, friendly service

    Took a day trip to Essaouira and loved the town. The Riad is in a very good location. Room was small but modern with good WiFi.

    Hidden gem in the medina of Essaouira!

    Hidden gem in the medina close to many shops and restaurants. Excellent service and helpful staff. All common areas and the room were very clean and modern yet with a touch of traditionnal Moroccan design. Exactly like in the pictures. Our room was on the small side but we could see into unused room and there were larger rooms as well. Wifi was a bit slow, but that's been the case pretty much everywhere else in Morocco. We didnt't get to try their breakfast as we had an early flight and breakfast service didnt't star until 8 but they did prepare croissant, cake, orange juice and coffee for us to have before we left. They also arranged transportation to the airport for us. There is also a house cat so beware if you're allergic to cats. Would stay here again for our next stay in Essaouira!

    Beautiful Riad, Spectacular Service

    This Riad was by far the nicest we stayed at during our three week trip in Morocco. The bathrooms were gorgeous, the decor throughout the Riad was spectacular, and the service went above and beyond. I was sick for one of the days there, and the staff helped my boyfriend in getting me medication and brought food to my room. Also, can’t beat the Riad cat Mimi with her little black kitten. I will definitely stay there in my next trip and highly recommend it.

  • 6.0.Good

    Beautiful design but they left out any room ventilation except from the bathroom window opening to hallway and door to room that opens onto the public hallway!!! No fan, no window that opens, no AC. We had to sleep with the door open which was creepy. We left one night early because of this. Otherwise, it is a beautiful place, just very impractical. Maybe we got the only room without any ventilation.Very nice staff.

    Bad choice

    The room it was very small, in the photos look much bigger than in reality, you barely could move. room badly maintained. staff and mostly owner very rude, unwelcoming and unprofessional behaviour. I was told in the morning that I wasn't entitled to breakfast, even thought it was in my booking confirmation and it was confirmed in my check in!! Cat living and moving around the hotel. Location feels unsafe at evening. I made my choice based on good reviews, it was a very bad decision and I truly regretted.

    A lovely Riad. The hostess was perhaps a little solicitous and hovered over us at every turn to the extent that we didn’t feel we could relax.
