Very friendly service and a great room cleaning service!!!
The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We were also offered a free room upgrade. Views from the terrace were spectacular,
Because our room wasn't ready yet when we arrived, they switched our room with terrace suite, which was most amazing thing they could do. The room was absolutely amazing, breakfast was perfect. Overall experience was one of the best on our trip in Morocco.
Location. Friendly staff. We were upgraded to a better room (free).
Lovely stay, good transfers from Marrakesh organised but the hotel, fantastic breakfasts and staff, good location, fab terrace suit (with amazing views), highly recommended!
No great shakes for us but the room was a little cold and smelly on arrival and there were catty smells around the breakfast sofas... Cute cat tho!
Light and spacious beautiful patisserie and home made yogurt and very helpful staff great position.
Leaking tapes in the bath
Location is excellent and near the car park Free room upgrade with balcony overlooking square Enormous room with 4poster bed and sitting room Convenient for lots of resaurants and souk
The stairs are quite steep and no lift but they gave me an upgrade and a 1st floor room
The friendly staff and cat mimi!
Nice hotel, well located, good breakfast.
The room was really nice but noisy due to a washing machine in another room that did not stop during the night. Stairs are really uncomfortable: I don't recommend this hotel if you have any difficulties to move.
Good service and efficiency
The staff, especially Monier and the nice waiter who serves breakfast. Nice old building, kept in good condition.
- we had the upper room with private terras - great breakfast - good location to visit the city
Lovely room, friendly staff and excellent breakfast.
Perfect location just next to the medina and the harbour. We had a beautiful view at the sea from our room which was on the rooftop. Good breakfast.
Rooms could use refurbishing (e.g. curtains). There was a strong smell in the bathroom.
all of the staff were so welcoming warm and friendly.Whist we were away my partner was unwell and the doctor had to be called.The staff arranged it and it was really good to see how organised they were.Especially as we do not speak french.The hotel is one of the best places i have stayed and I have travelled extensively through out the world.would strongly recommend this lovely place.
A bit cold at night and no means to heat it
excellent location, 2 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from everything, yet really quiet. Nice, big rooms, friendly staff. I recommend it!
Every day sweet breakfast, but I guess it is typical for Morocco...
location, spacious room, very nice riad!
we chose the riad because of the fire places. in january its cold during the nights...none of them is working. Not even in the room. Was cold.
location staff breakfast it is easy to park the car very close to the hotel (the parking place has nothing to do with the hotel) the room we had is really charming they really let you pay with credit card without complaining!!
You may have to climb some stairs to get to your room (little price to pay for the wonderful view), so, if you have problems with that, maybe you should ask in advance.
I loved this place. I stayed in a suite, it was just beautiful. Lovely decor. Was just so charming and original. Breakfast was nice. The room was cleaned every day and the cleaners left it so immaculate. It was quiet here at night so I slept really well. The hotel is really near to the beach, the port, the medina and the Supratours bus station. I'm so glad I chose to stay here.
Felt that the man working the front desk on my last day seemed like he was in a bit of a bad mood.
Breakfast delicious coffee pancakes yoghurt and honey, the bedroom , close to medina , freindly staff, quiet .
Great location, not exactly in the medina, technically maybe in the medina, anyway you are within 1 min outside or inside medina. 3 min walking to the beach (great beach), 3 min to the fishermen port - nice photos. As some mentioned before - front desk did an upgrade and we get suite, that was sweet. Bedroom, huge dayroom with two windows facing quiet square, bathroom. Hotel itself is really nice, would expect higher rates for the night. After check out we left our bags until 4 pm. Didn't use taxi - bus station 10-15 min walk, Supratour departure/arriving point - 3 min away, very suitable. Jan is not high season, that explains a lot. By the way Essaouira is so calm in compare to Marrakesh madness, touristy medina (maybe percept as + or - for someone).
Beautiful small place inside the Medina. Fantastic service that made our stay valuable despite a little low temperatures in january.
