Score from 439 reviews Very good
Personal is competent and nice. The place has a nice big entry hall.
The closeness to the sea can become a problem some days in that there is a smell of the sewers in the rooms.
Friendly staff awaited our arrival. Our room was upgraded & was delightful in all ways. Decoration very tasteful, ATM next door, helpful information from reception & carried our bags up the flights of stairs. Plenty of space to relax & reading books available. Rooftop has great views. What more can I say except I will be back.
That I had to leave
Of the five places we stayed in Morocco, this was the best. The location is ace, the rooms spacious, the staff friendly, the facilities clean, wifi functioning. Everything about it was amazing!
Nothing negative to say at all - thank you for a wonderful stay!
Location is perfect, very friendly and helpful staff, clean, amazing traditional breakfast
The location of this hotel was perfect - in the heart of Essouira, literally across the road from the port and a 3 minute walk to the souk and other attractions. Breakfast was traditional Moroccon breakfast and was fantastic! Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are immaculate and exceptionally clean with a lot of character. Our room even had a fireplace and chimney and we were able to light up some firewood to keep warm at night. Overall was a fantastic stay for us and closeby to the main attractions. Would definitely stay there again.
friendly staff, nice room, we were upgraded to room with balcony... Would stay again.
Location, un fussy, spacious, relaxed. Lovely room overlooking the main entrance to the souks.
Very basic but clean. Good location. Good breakfast.
Shower space was small, hard to stop water going everywhere, smelt a bit damp. Not a whole lot of atmosphere.
the view if you book a top terras room. the breakfast is excellent
there's no wood for the fireplace, so don't expect the fireplace to burn.
This place is a must go in essouiara if they have a vacancy. Staying here was an experience that I will not forget.....felt like I was living in a bungalow lost in time. Beautiful and majestic! Staff were so friendly. Take time to take a tour of this entire place, and you will not be disappointed. I'm coming back!
Hair dryers should have been there in the bathrooms.
Wonderful riad!! Good location, near the beach and port. Extremly friendly and helpful staff!
everything great, room, service, staff, breakfast, location, cleanliness. definitely recommend
Really easy to get to, close to the main parking area from the harbour. Great access to the Medina. Nice breakfast, although it could use some more diversity. Staff is helpful, was a great stay overall.
Everything perfect. Comfortable bed, calm room, great breakfast.
Avoid cappuccino. It's not great.
The staff of this hotel is realy the best!
The building looks really nice, the staff is really friendly. The location of the hotel is great, right in the middle of everything.
The room had a strange smell.
Friendly reception, very helpful Staff, he showed us what places to visit in Essaouira, we even got a room upgrade (70% off!). great restaurant. Location is great, in the middle of Medina and very close to the beach.
Almost everything. Very friendly staff, jolly good location, interesting building, enjoyable breakfast, pleasant rooftop terrace with sunset views over the port, the pool and stay at Villa Juba - co owned hotel a couple of miles out of town.
Our (standard) room ventilated only into closed atrium and was consequentially stuffy. Best book a balcony room.
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.
