Score from 270 reviews Excellent
the location is fine, it's a quiet area just off the main street. The staff was very friendly.
The rooms had dusty carpets on the floor, the bathroom was very basic with rusty taps. This was all the same throughout the whole riad, including the roof terrace. The sofas were so dusty and sticky I didn't dare sit on them. The wifi only worked half the time and was very slow.
Price was good, the breakfast was good and the personal was ok. If you don't have big expectation also the rest can be considered it ok.
The location in old medina, (old medina is dirty, and the smell is terrible).
The Friendliness of all the Staff.
Attention to basic details, the inability to close the room door, shower unit broken!
staff were always kind and obliging, the location in the sewing quarter of the Medina central and picturesque.
Cleanliness, facilities and comfort, Riad Ghita needs to improve on bed linen and bathroom facilities.
Good location in the heart of Medina, friendly and helpful staff.
there was a shower curtain instead of the bathroom door - no privacy. Poor window view. Noise from other rooms and staircase.
Good location, nice breakfast, friendly staff.
A lot of the futniture in our room was broken (the bed, the sink, the shower..). Also, the room and bathroon were not clean. At last there was less atmosphere in the riad. No music, no other people.. It was no fun.
Friendly staff with english and french languages, good mood and athmosfere to spend free time - relaxing, open space with candle and comfortable coaches , tea and coffee on demand, Riad is not crowdy, good price for such quality, This Riad is situated in very comfortable area ( in the Old Medina , very close area to a local market ( very cheap and very oriental ) and ....the only ONE As-Sawirra's alcohol shop is just behind the Medinas Wall ( search carrefully becouse there is no signs !!!!)
A little kids playing and shouting outside on the streets ( noisy ), but there is not the fault of tis RIAD GHITA , so No dislikes :)
the riad is very central, it's easy to explore essaouira from there.
the room and bathroom weren't very clean. plus the room was very small and the sink leaked all night, so that there was water everywhere in the bathroom.
the staff were excellent, very helpful.
the smell of sewers , but this is normal in a lot of places in morocco.
very friendly, helpful staff.
Couldn't get wi-fi in our terrace room.
The staff is really kind, Really good breakfast. Good quality for this price.
The wall are thin, really thin. We could hear the people next door. Wi-fi signal was not so good.
They have an excellent staff of young people working here. The breakfast was nice, and this small riad is a good value for the money. It was nice to watch some TV with many English channels.
Couldn't get wifi to work in the room.
