Okay location, helpful and friendly staff. We were upgraded. Breakfast was good.
There was hair on the bed sheets. We noticed this at 11.00pm and therefore did not complain or highlight this during our stay. Only one mirror in our room and this being in the toilet which had very poor lighting. Because all staff were so friendly we felt bad mentioning any of this whilst we were there.
In no particular order, all of below were excellent: The rooms The staff The breakfast The roof terrace The location We'd stay here again no problem !
The staff was extremely helpful. I had to catch an early bus at 6 am and breakfast was prepared at 5:30. I was also taken my bags to the bus.
Nice and clean rooms, very friendly personel, good position in mefina but quiet enaugh. Close to beach, nice roof terace with great view. It is possible to pay by credit cards.
We managed to get a room here last minute during the music festival . Unfortunately for us they were booked out after that but Omar went out of his way to help us find somewhere else. The place is beautiful, stylish but understated and a very relaxed place to spend time. Omar is the supreme host, and makes you feel very much at home. We've stayed in a lot of places around Morocco and this is right up at the top of our list.
Only staying one night
Best staff we have ever encountered. Always smiling and always willing to help. It was great coming "home" to them, in a peaceful environment after the hectic medina. They really are exceptional!! The riad itself is incredibly beautiful and luxurious while still clearly a previous glorious moroccan palace. The room has a TV, bathrobes, is beautifully decorated. We had a lovely terrace too. The communal terrace on the rooftop is great to look over the medina and for sunsets. even though it is a 1 minute walk from the most important sights in medina. Last but not least, the breakfast was the best i had in morocco. This riad really has everything you need in Essaouira. An excellent price quality option, we stayed at riads that were almost double as expensive but not half as good... Regards
Unfortunately, we were double booked but the accommodation looked really good .We were really looked after and given another Riad close by, a bit more basic and cheaper. This wasn't a problem and we were happy to oblige the change, as these things happen.
Everything was ok. Good location. Nice Atmosphere. Clean. HUGE AND GOOD BREACKFAST!!! Will come back soon!
It was very easy to find from the SupraTours bus stop. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was wonderful and quite a spread. The location was convenient and Omar gave us a helpful map when we arrived, which made it easy to navigate while we were there. It was a quiet, clean, relaxing stay.
Lovely Riad with kind and helpful staff. Breakfasts are lovely and it's very conveniently located.
Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable room and the best breakfast we had in any hotel in Morocco.
This was my first time to both Morocco and Essaouira and I could not have been more pleased with this beyond gorgeous riad. If only I had had more time here! I would definitely love to come back. It was located right off an easy to find major street, which was very helpful. Omar, the manager, was incredible. I can't be more complimentary about him -- he did everything possible to make my stay as a solo female traveler comfortable. He gave me directions, let me borrow an umbrella, hooked me up with a hammam and then actually went and argued with them when they overcharged me a tiny bit (!). We had some wonderful chats about his life in Morocco and his family. He is so lovely and sweet! I loved this riad and would recommend to anyone traveling to Essaouira.
This riad is very charming and the manager Omar was so sweet and helpful, he really made an effort to make you feel at home and nothing was a problem. The riad was nicely decorated and extremely clean and comfortable. Coming from Marrakech it was the perfect chill out riad as it was very quiet with a lovely terrace overlooking the ocean. It had a really relaxing vibe and the room was lovely and quiet at night so you get a really great nights sleep. Breakfast was delicious on the sunny terrace.
There was nothing I didn't like, this riad is fantastic.
Lovely quiet riad in the heart of the medina, the room we had was a good size and very clean, lovely views from the roof terraces and we particularly liked having breakfast on the roof terrace each morning, the staff were happy, friendly, and very helpful, they couldn't do enough for you, we would definitely stay here again
Very relaxed, friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Good place to stay in Essaouira, convenient for walking about. Good breakfast.
The heater in our room did not work and so it was a bit cold at night. No other complaints.
a nice ambiance. Room was comfortable and roomy. The fire in the louge was very welcome in the evenings. Friendly helpful staff.
the lighting in the room was poor making it difficult to read in there.
very friendly staff great breakfast lovely and quite rooms
the roof terrace is a bit neglected - some new loungers are needed
Dar Assalama was my favourite of the two places we stayed during our 8 days stay in Morocco. It was peaceful, comfortable and perfect for four days in Essaouira. The hotel staff were very helpful at all times. It's an approximate 4 minutes walk to the market area. The view from the terrace is wonderful. The room we stayed in was big and lovely. My wife wants to go back, I'm sure we will one day!
The market gets really busy in the evenings, some may like it.
