Close to the beach, Riad Zahra proposes simplicity and comfort only 15 minutes walk from the Medina. Located in the residential district, the Zahra offers calm, relaxation and a peaceful stay.

In a traditional and authentic 18th-century riad located 330 yards from the beach in Essaouira, Maison du Sud is in the heart of the medina (historic quarter).
Score from 127 reviews Good
Such good value for money and so so beautiful. Everything was perfect.
Breakfast could be improved
We were upgraded to a luxury room with was lovely. The room was on the top floor with a private terrace and views of the medina.
The room was a bit smelly and the climb to the top floor was a bit tiring.
Style of accommodation clen bright and stylish. Helpful and friendly staff. On edge of medina so close enough to enjoy atmosphere of the souks and the port.
Seagulls mess couldn't put anything on the balcony. Small annoyance compared to all the things we enjoyed.
The breakfast was OK
Very bad service, it was like camping while paying expensive hotel prices
Staff at the bar was very friendly Rooms were beautiful Location
There was no water during some part of the day, initially the staff said it was problem everywhere in the city but I think it's an issue for the rooms on the higher floors..this could be quite an inconvenient, one morning we had to wait for an hour to take a shower
Old world mansion made into a hotel, beautiful atmosphere
Bad drainage in the bathroom
Location was good.
The property needed a refresh and had a foul smell.
Staff were wonderful. Helpful and friendly and available 24/7.
We were not able to get wifi on our iPad. It appeared to only work for lodgers' smartphones (and we did not have one with us). We were able to find internet spaces nearby within the Medina, so communication was not a big issue.
Lovely rooms with terraces. Beautiful sea view.
There was a loud music playing until 3am outside the hotel. But that was a concert, so normally shouldn't be a problem.
Like decor, canopy beds, open 24 hours, location
Big thanks to Monir for his help and pro activity. If you you want to be in the heart of the city, do not hesitate - book this charming hotel.
Excellent location. Great breakfast. Great staff. Great room
The location, ambience, helpful staff were excellent.
We had to move rooms because the first room had a streetlight outside the window and no effective curtain to block out the light. Also, note that if traveling during Ramadan, some rooms hear the 3am call to prayer louder than the others.
Location very close to the souk and beach. The facility is attractive decorated.
We had a standard room with 2 windows facing inside the hotel, therefore much noise from nearby rooms and passing guests. Breakfast is basic and boring.
Great location. Value for money. Very relaxed shared area. Helpful staff. Happy to reccomend to others.
The hotel is well located near the beach front and, although there was no air con, there was always a cool sea breeze. It was conveniently located just inside the medina but near a wide promenade so little noise apart from seagulls. Excellent decor with some interesting furniture. Pleasant staff and nice Continental breakfast.
the welcome and friendliness of the staff. the decor. Centrality of the hotel.
Pillows were hard.
We only stayed for one night but thought the hotel was great! It was very easy to find and we were given a very warm welcome on arrival and were treated to tea and biscuits. We stayed in room 11 and loved the character of it! It was based on 3 floors with a sitting area on the top floor, followed by a bedroom on the lower floor and a bathroom on the bottom floor. Be warned - the stairs are very narrow and steep so may not be easy to use for everyone. There was also no air conditioning. We didn't find it to be a problem during our stay but during very hot days I imagine it could be a little uncomfortable for some.
Great location near the beach, the plaza and the markets! Friendly staff and beautifully decorated rooms. I highly recommend this place.
We had an absolute fantastic stay with staff incredibly helpful and friendly going out of their way to look after us. I will recommend Palazzo Desdemona to anyone!
An excellent choice! We loved everything about this place and highly recommend it to anyone. Maria and Tomas Sweden
Staff were awesome
Couldn't recommend this hotel too highly. Ticks all the boxes. New building, great amenities, staff were fabulous ... Friendly & helpful. We had dinner there which was great & good value. Rooms were lovely & spotlessly clean.
The space was beautiful. The lobby was a nice place to relax and take the beautiful, delicious breakfast every morning. The staff was very helpful, too.
The bathrooms were a little smelly. I'm thinking there may be a plumbing problem in the works.
Perfect location in Essaouira with very friendly personal
The smell in the bathroom
