I think it would have been impossible to find independently, but a phone call to the riad was all it took and they sent someone to pick us up at the bus station
The staff -particularly the lovely lady who made us breakfast each morning. Comfortable seating on the terrace

Bathroom is tiny but it was fine for us. Apart from honeymoon room, others may may not have day light. It is difficult to find for the first time so ask for pick up beforehand.
If you want to feel like home go for this riad. I have stayed in 3 Riads in Morocco but this one made me feel like it was my home. We stayed in honeymoon room. It met our expectations. Hassan and his wife provided everything we asked for. They meet you in bus stop and treat you like a king. Also BREAKFAST was great!! You cannot find a better breakfast in other riads. We couldn't finish everything. Location is also good. Terrace was great. You can see the sea and don't forget to take photos. Thanks Hassan and his wife for everything

Only minor downside is that the riad can be a little difficult to find, down a little alley on the side street. The local residents were very friendly and helpful and pointed us in the right direction. The final alley is a little un-welcoming but don't be put off!
Great location in the middle of the medina, step out into the market stalls and the bustling streets but set back down a side street so a lovely quiet nights sleep. Only 5 minutes walk from the square and the fishing port and less than 10 mins from the beach. Loads of space - each room-suite is a floor of the riad, with bedroom bathroom and sitting area. Wonderful, plentiful breakfast every morning and friendly welcoming staff, nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay here again!

Me and my boyfriend had a really great time at this Riad. Perfect location in the center of the medina. Rooms are super cosy and clean and there is a beautiful terass with view over the medina. Hassan and his crew are super friendly and helped us out with the information we needed. They also served really good breakfast! I would totally recommend this place if you're looking for a place to stay in Essaouira!

The layout was great, with one nicely furbished guest space with a sitting room per floor. The manager was very friendly and efficient - we felt right at home!

The road is up an alley that smells like a toilet. I had the room at the top and the bathroom was tiny. No ventilation or ac a part from a window that opened out onto a communal area.

Honeymoon room we were in was quite bright in the mornings as the frosted windows did not have curtains, shower/bathroom was also quite crampt
Manager Hassan was very friendly and welcoming, very nice Moroccan breakfast prepared freshly by Hassan and his wife every morning, central location in the Medina only half hour walk to end of sandy beach where watersports rental and beach bars are
June 21, 2014
The manager and his wife were very warm and friendly. Always greeting you with a smile and a friendly boujour. The Riad was beautiful with an excellent terrace with a good view. I would recommend this Riad to anyone.

Hassan was incredibly welcoming and met us straight off the bus from Marrakech which helped as the Riad can be difficult to find initially. It in a great location, only a few minutes walk from the main square and a number of delicious restaurants. The breakfast was by far the best we had throughout our whole time in Morocco - bread, jams, honey, yoghurt, msimen (moroccan pancakes), fresh pastries, fruit and omelette. Delicious!! Wifi was good and every evening we were greeted with mint tea and chilled in the communal living room - very nice atmosphere! We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Essaouira and thoroughly recommend it for a more personal and welcoming atmosphere!!

Great little Riad! Hassan was a fantastic host who made us feel very welcome, prepared a beautiful breakfast each day and recommended some great restaurants and activities. He also let us use the room until 2pm on the day we left as I was not feeling well. My only hesitation was that it was hard to find initially (down a side street with no sign) but once the guide took us there for first time (for a small tip) and we knew where we were going it was easy to locate and very central. We stayed in the honeymoon suite with the extra balcony so used that but also used the roof terrace which was lovely in the sun.

It is tucked away in the non-descript, smelly back alley so it can seem a bit dodgy. However during the day you will see the little kids, cats and neighborhood dog roaming around. And in the evening it is very well lit so you wouldn't feel it unsafe by any means.
As it was with the sister riad, Dar Najat, in Marrakech, the service and the comfort of this riad were simply excellent. The breakfast was plentiful and we almost didn't need lunch. The riad is also very quiet with only 4 rooms and nicely ventilated so we slept very well in our comfortable, clean bed. We received help with making additional arrangement and everything went very smoothly. Absolutely recommend it to anyone traveling to Essaouira on a smaller budget but looking for a great, clean, comfortable accommodation.
April 24, 2014
The alley is quite small and it is difficult to find the place since there is no sign on the door. There isn't much natural light coming in.
The Riad is a good value for money - the room was comfortable and very clean, quiet and pleasant to stay in

Hassan is the soul of this riad - thank you my friend.

This is my second time coming to riad bab Essaouria. It is very central and nicely presented with nice well maintained furniture and decoration. Breakfasts were excellent. There is a roof sun terrace which is great when not too windy. Hassan, the host, is the reason to choose this riad, with his friendly manner, good English and French, and the time and help he has made available.
