The room was to small, no good for three persons.
The decoration of the house
Amazingly decorated a fantastic raid and the host is fantastic
I got picked up from the taxi station which was great. The interior of the appartement is even better than on the photos, breathtaking. I slept very well in the bed, the cover was comfortable and warm. Soedade and Fernando gave me a warm welcome and they have a nice map ready for all visitors about where to go. Great roof terrace. Can highly recommend the place!
The owners are the best hosts you can ever have! They are so kind, helpful and caring. We totally enjoyed our stay there and could have stayed so much longer!
The room is nice and cozy and bright with high ceiling and a lot of square footage. There's a fire place in the room which makes the winter night not so chilly. The house is an original mellah dar with just the right amount of European touch. The host is warm hearted and very helpful. The view on the terrace is incomparable.
The breakfast was not present.
the postion is perfect. the roof is amazing, The highest roof of the Medina. The room was so cute and clean
We stayed on the 1st floor. Less privacy if there are other guests living above you. (As the ceiling of the living room is half open)
The characters of the apartment; live like a local with good facilities; the roof Teras with the views over city & the sea.
Daranur is perfect for travelers seeking quiet time away from crowds. Its located a few steps away from Medina main street, close to everything. Its so homy, cozy and private with artistic touch. We had great stay !
We were dropped off at home and no one could communicate in English so we were unsure of organisation such as payment, accessing car, time of departure. We also had no electricity for a day and had to find someone in a restaurant to phone on our behalf. The riad is located down an alley near food market but as a single woman I would not feel safe walking at night on my own. What a pity Essaouria has so much litter and feases on the streets.
Good view from top of roof across city as it is one of the highest points in Essaouira. Self contained kitchenette upstairs handy for cooking.
Everything!!!! Especially the rooftop!!!
? whats there not to like !
the accommodation was superb with the best roof top in the medina,the views were just perfect.
Quite a bit of noise penetrating from the street. The mattress was very hard. Not ideal for a light sleeper.
The landlady is very welcoming and helpful. Room was pretty in the tradition of riads. Home cooking was excellent.
Soedade's friendliness amd helpfulness Geographical situation at the heart of Essaouira's souk Very nicely decorated and very comfortable
Our apartment was like a home away from home. Soedade is a wonderful host. Close to the food market and restaurants. Close to everything.
Wifi doesn't reach into the bedrooms (must be the thick traditional walls). Available just outside your door though. No big deal and actually probably a blessing in disguise when you're relaxing in a place like this!
This really is like staying at a friend's house. So welcoming and hospitable. Best bit is the roof terrace with perfect views of the town, sea and beach. Brilliant for relaxing with a book in the sun.
It was just a shame that we didn't get to meet Soedade. Also, we found that our bed was very hard, luckily we are young, and can handle that, however I think if we had stayed any longer than 4 nights, we would probably have asked about moving to a different room, as we appeared to be the only guests for a couple days.
Essaouria is the most beautiful place, and the best part of Daranur, is the spectacular view of Essaouria on the terrace, really beautiful! It is a perfect little place if you are hoping to spend most of your time out, as the room was very small and basic, but that was great for us, and was reflected in the good price, so we were very happy overall with the place. And Milouda was lovely and very accommodating, as unfortunately Soedade was away for family reasons, which couldn't be helped. I think the photo of our room on the website, definitely made the room appear bigger, but it's definitely not a complaint, and we loved everything. Also, payment was very easy, and we paid the night before we left, as we had to get up early for the bus to Marrakech.
We loved everything about Daranur! Soedade was the perfect host & has created a beautiful home from home for her guests, could not recommend this riad highly enough, a wonderful place to stay.
We loved our host Milouda and her generosity and kindness! She also recommended Abdou for our transport and this was excellent! The location was perfect and the view of the ocean a dream.
Very nice and well situated appartement. Super roofterrace with spectacular vieuw over essaouira and see. Will definately come back.
Milouda was a fantastic host and we would stay there again. the Riad is beautiful and has everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. The location is the best and the Riad is perfectly clean with access to kitchen and wonderful terrace.
Milouda was a fantastic host and Soedade made everything so easy. I loved this place!
Bed rather small and way, way to hard
Panoramic view on the terrace
Soedade, lovely spanish owner of the place was a splendid hostess, the view from the top terrace was breathtaking . The little kitchen had everything you need to cook your own tagine.
Best experience during our stays in Maroc. Good taste for decoration, very cozy. Very kind and nice people.
Unfortunately, the smell of cigarette smoke from other guests frequently drifted in to the apartment somehow from either the terrace or the apartment below. Not sure there was any way to stop this, since we had our windows closed most of the time.
We enjoyed a couple of nights in lovely Essaouira and were very pleased with Daranur. The very nice owner, Soedade, met us off the Supratours bus from Marrakesh and walked with us (and a trolley guy for our bags) to the apartment. The apartment was beautifully furnished, filled with light and art, and had a comfy bed. We were able to prepare some meals there, which felt nice after eating in restaurants and riads for so many nights in other locations. The view from the rooftop terrace is lovely. It's easy to get to anywhere you want from this conveniently located spot. The value for money was superb for this property. We felt very welcome here. Thanks so much!
