Perfect base for your stay in Essaouria. The staff were great.
Excellent location, good value for money and great terrace. Nice ambience.
Roof terrace could do with more chairs and tables. Room door lock was a bit loose. Breakfast service was a slightly disorganised.
Good location, nice roof terrace
Very noisy street during the day, room was kind of dirty with old sheets and towels, bathroom taps were rusty.
Very friendly staff.
The bathroom is clean but did not match the high standard of the room. It has to be renovated.
Really loud at night till 4am!
The room was clean and comfortable. At first we were conceded because there is no a/c, but the weather in Essaouira is very cool and we were even chilly at night, so no a/c was needed. The staff here is wonderful and we were really happy with our interactions with them. They gave good advice and were always smiling. Breakfast was simple, but enough for us. Beautiful city and this Riad is in the walled area, close to shops and restaurants.
friendly and helpful welcome
- Bathroom dirty and not very functional - dirty sheets - credit cards not accepted
Just outside of Riad was a shop with very friendly owner.
The room was not ready. Slow internet with weak WiFi. Not enough towels. Only one man was speaking English. Poor breakfast.
The guy at the reception.
Lovely building, nice staff, nice simple breakfast.
WiFi only works close to reception
The location is perfect , in the heart of the Media, 10 minutes from the beach. The staff is friendly and helpfull. Them rooms are basic, but clean and the bed is comfortable. The breakfast is basic (fresh bread, jam, honey, tea or coffee, fresh orange juice) but abundant.
Friendly staff, great location, beautiful building and very good value. We really loved staying at El Mess - it was the nicest place we stayed in Morrocco. Really quiet after the hustle of Marrakech- a beautiful roof terrace, lovely room (a slight whiff of damp but nothing nasty) and the staff were kind and friendly.
Great value for money :)
wi fi just near reception, room was not prepaire, evem we came very late
The staff was nice enough. Close to shops, restaurants and other facilities. Very silent nighttime
Lack of lights in stairs and the room. Very bad shower, no hot water the last morning. The breakfast was very ordinary - with lukewarm english tea.
I like it was a fun place and good staff
Staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful, the location was great, and morning breakfast was perfect.
I cannot say anything about this Riad because as soon as we arrived, the concierge said that there was only one room left (despite the website said there were still 5) and since they did not receive any e-mail of notification from booking.com that room was even not prepared. Then we have been accompanied to another Riad belonging to the same owner.
Nice basic riad we didn't want much more, well located and friendly staff
Our room was not serviced during our stay we had to ask for toilet paper
