Had 4 wonderful days in this riad. Waking up and falling asleep with the sound of the ocean in your ear is just great. Good breakfast on a nice roof terrace.
Excellent location inside the Medina and very quite. Sea views and panoramic views across the old city walls makes this extra special. Every room has been styled differently but compliment each other with great panache. Warm and very friendly staff that provide great local knowledge.
Great view from the breakfast terrace over the ocean and well located at the top of the medina. Comfy room with nice four post bed.
Room slightly cluttered with art and sculpture but that's what it's named after.
We so enjoyed our one night first stay here last May, that we just had to make a longer return visit as part of this year's touring holiday in Morocco.The views from the terrace over the ramparts and the sunsets over the sea just add an extra dimension to the already welcoming and peaceful ambiance of this beautifully quirky riad. Thank you Isobelle for sharing your delightful home with us,
Nothing. Climbing the 4 storeys of stairs is totally well worthwhile.
Fantastic location with absolutely breathtaking views of the rampart and ocean. The pavillion is just the coolest room ever. Lovely, warm, friendly staff made us feel so at home (and special).
Scala room is beautiful. Nice decoration and terrace in front of the sea.
Hot water is a bit limited
the house and terrace is great as well as the people!
My stay La Maison Des Artistes was far better then I could have imagined. The room was stunning with the most spectacular view in Essouira. The bed, the cushions, the bathroom, were pure luxury as was the extensive Breakfast of jams, honeys, fresh fruits, Pain au chocolat, Eggs (need I digress). Isabel the hotel owner was an absolute delight and made sure everything needed was catered for. The room above mine was also very special, The Loft room. The bath looked out to sea, roses in the room, old artifacts from Berber's. A real warm energy runs through this very special place. I am back in May hopefully :)
Right in front of the sea, close to the main square where all taxies drive to, good area in media. Pretty blue building and great terrace to have breakfast looking down the sea. The owner Isabella and all staff were very friendly and helpful. There were a fridge with free water and a hair drier in the room which was very helpful too. Our room had just a ceiling window which you can open from the terrace, nice to keep it open when we sleep so that we can hear the sound of sea good volume. Definitely come back again!
Lots of art objects in the room and felt a bit nervous about knocking down some of them, but not that much problem at all.
We enjoyed our stay a lot. The location could not be better. The view was breathtaking, the decoration in our room was very stylish. Extremely clean. Rich and tasty breakfast on the roof terrace. The staff was really helful and kind; Hajija was lovely, so was Hasna, Busma, Mustafa, Latifa, and of course Isabelle, the owner of the Hotel made us fell like home. Thanks a lot...
Very relaxed, homely atmospher. Our room was beautiful, spacious, light and airy even without window, other than skylight. Views from roof terrace out to sea fab!
Unique and personal

Lost my Moskow SIM card;))
The attic room was incredible and our host the wonderful Isobel could not do enough for us it all made our stay magical experience
What a place !! It 's like you are inside a museum. Really, wonderful place to stay. Thanks to Isabella for her help and smile. The staff are very friendly. The location is great with a wonderful view over the ocean. I love this place
There really was nothing at all to dislike. The welcome from Isobelle,the friendly owner, the situation overlooking the ramparts and sea giving marvellous views from a lovely terrace, the furnishings, the delicious breakfast (including the choice of how we would like our eggs cooked - unusual for Morocco.) Everything byfar exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return to this accommodation if and when we re-visit Essouira. As Isobelle does not provide evening meals (understandably as there is such a large number of places to dine, she recommended we visit the nearby Restaurant Adwak. Where we enjoyed an excellent evening meal and again we would fully recommend this restaurant.
This is not a dislike only a comment that there are several steep stairs to negotiate to gain access to this fantastic property. However, my partner who has arthritis and has had two knee replacements,found a few minutes of discomfort well worth it.
The location of the Riad is absolutely stunning!! In the hearth of the Medina, right on the walls towards the ocean, I would have spent all my time on the terrace. Our room was among the cheapest so we had a roof window...however this was perfectly managed by the staff to make us have the right amount of air at different times of the day. Breakfast was great.
Beautiful view to the splanade and the sea (though window relatively small). Functional and decorative furniture and items selected for an oriental atmosphere. Comfortable bed. Inspired room configuration with large bathroom separated from room by glass partition. Breakfast was great!
Bathroom has limited ventilation
Magnificent roof terrace, with a wall as a wind break. Some seats offered great views of the sea. The riad was decorated in the theme of European artists such as Dali and Picasso- a nice touch. Just out of the door, at street level , you were in the thick of the town and all its colourful attractions.
There was a cat wandering around and lazing on the furniture all the time. I and other guests I spoke to, have allergies to cats. I did not realise they had one.
The location was perfect as a base for forays around Essaouira and the views from the rooms and the rooftop were spectacular. We loved the eclectic furnishings and artefacts and our rooms were very comfortable. A place to chill and relax. I can see that some people have commented on the fact that not everything is brand spanking new and that furniture and furnishings are worn: perhaps they haven't heard of shabby chic? We found it both homely and stylish and we loved it. We determined that we would make a good breakfast before setting out for the day but even with that determination we couldn't do full justice to the feast that was served to us each morning in the sunshine on the roof terrace. Owner and staff were welcoming and helpful but not intrusive, and the price was very reasonable. All in all we were glad we had chosen the Maison des Artistes.
Great location, great french owner and helpful staff, fantastic breakfast on the roof terrace, great, light, arty room terrace room!
That i left this wonderful place, wished i stayed a bit longer!!
Isabelle was sound!
Not enough time!
The best place in Essaouira. I've stayed in numerous hotels and riads in Essaouira but I've never felt as good as in La Maison des Artistes. It is worth every penny. The difference between any other hotel and this one is huge, the owner is a wonderful lady. Thank you, Isabelle.
The scene from balcony was more than anything which was breath taking breakfast was nice and staffs are kind and helpful.
wifi and water supply in bath room was not good enough. However it is not only problem for this hotel but almost (perhaps all) of hotel in old medina in this area. if you want more comfortable facility, i would recommend the modern hotel outside medina. Because Essaeura is very small district and it is still no problem even if you find a hotel outside medina unlike another cities in Morroco.My wife wished to stay another modern resort cause we stayed already in hotel in medina for 2 nights before.
The decoration makes you feel at home. The terrace with sea view is fantastic.
