The grand Palais Des Remparts is in the heart of the medina (historic quarter) of Essaouira, only 3 minutes from the beach. It is a stylish hotel and serves traditional Moroccan cuisine.

Score from 420 reviews Wonderful
This Riad is in the center of Essaouira just steps from the port and beach. Each traditional Moroccan room at the Riad Chakir Mogador has a private bathroom and a sitting area.
Score from 441 reviews Very good
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.
Great location and value for money in a hotel full of character. Staff were attentive and very helpful. Rooms were kept spotless
Wi-Fi tended to be hit or miss at times. Perhaps due to the expanse of the hotel but was only occasional and was soon sorted
The location is excellent, the property is very charming.
The room was a bit shabbyhe. The wiring was horrible because the electricity in our room went out twice. The bathroom was big, but there was no shower curtain, so inevitably you would splash water everywhere.
Great central location. A really nice ambiance in the cafe and with the staff. Best breakfast we had in Morocco and fastest WIFI!
Not expecting really anything more, but we were second floor with a baby and there's no elevator so that was a bit tough and they didn't have a baby bed. We brought our own though so were fine. We did book last minute so maybe all baby beds were taken.
Staff we generally very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent for visiting the port, beach and Marina. Room very spaceous.
The interior is very tired and needs TLC. The room had a musty smell that we couldn't get rid of, and always seemed dusty. Sealing the wood floors might help! Bathroom gets soaked during shower, and there is a lingering smell of sewers.
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.
