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.

The Riad Inna is a 18th century house renovated in the Morocco-Andalusia style, situated only 1000 ft from the sea and in middle of the medina (historic quarter).
Score from 211 reviews Very good
Decor beautiful. Quiet and relaxing, secluded location in centre of medina. Great music! Friendly & welcoming host who sourced 2 CD's for me of music I'd heard and liked playing in riad. It has won awards and I'm not surprised! Felt like home and a welcome sanctuary. Nearby bakery where you can buy fresh baked baguettes for 1 dirham (7p!)
Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very good, the bread was so warm and the coffee was really nice. The roof and its view were beautiful and comfortable. The location was very convenient (very close to Supratours bus terminal).
Staff were excellent
Superb location - 30 seconds from the main street Great breakfast Friendly owners Bedroom and bathroom were enormous. Incredible value for money!
A few more toiletries would be nice but this is nit picking!
Essaouria is very small - the riad is just located in an alley way off the main shopping street so its very convenient of walking around. However it is a very tricky place to find - I would ask them to meet you at the bus station on arrival. Harty breakfast very morning. WiFi works well in the rooms. Consistent hot water and good water pressure.
The bed and linens looked clean but over night we got serious mosquito bites! This was weird because we didn't think there were any mosquitoes and they were definitely not bed bugs. But I would wear a long shirt to sleep just in case. There is not staff at the road after hours - they only leave a contact number for you to call, this could be a safety concern for some people but we were OK.
The room was fine, breakfast too and the location as well, arrival was fine as well.
Apart from the arranged breakfast time there is nobody there and on our last day we had arranged to pick up our suitcases at a certain time, but nobody was there while the taxi driver was waiting at the other side of the city wall and we had a very stressfull leaving running to advise the taxi driver we could not get hold of our luggage.
First day there was a bad smell in the room coming out of the sewage pipes - but we fixed it by covering drains in the shower and sink.
Fairly quiet location even though in the heart of the medina. Nice roof terrace to have breakfast on. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
No windows to room which meant it was airless and fairly dark without the lights on, no windows to bathroom either. No sign for riad on the main road though there was for other riads in the same alleyway..
Fantastic place, friendly staff. Great breakfasts and a lovely roof terrace.
A little bit difficult to find, the map on booking.com was incorrect.
A great location, very nice people and an overall fantastic stay.
Our room was a little musty and a bit cramped, but the rest of the Riad made up for it with charm and great service.
Fabulous fodd for dinner and breakfast cooked on the spot by the hard working and friendly housekeeper. Room was comfortable and immacuate best place I have stayed in Morocco.
beautiful room, central location, bicycle parking no problem
The staff was really friendly and accommodating.
The mattress was quite hard. It was too spartan for me and I had to change accommodations.
Nice place in the heart of the medina and close to the beach.
Wifi on the second floor rooms poor
My friend and I had a fabulous stay in Essaouira thanks to this charming Riad, the manager Lachen was very helpful, friendly and attentive,the location is excellent and the atmosphere is very homely and relaxing. We would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again ourselves. Also we were booked into the small Mogadar room - which was lovely, but got upgraded free of charge to a much larger nicer room for our last night!
Clean beautiful riad with very friendly personnel. We spent 4 nights and enjoyed every minute. The rooftop allows sunbathing with a view of the town.
Chic riad, a renovated townhouse in the medina of Essaouria! A beautifully room and ensuite bathroom. Thank you!
The location of the hotel was quiet good in the medina of -Essauoira.
We were staying at the top of the riad, in one room on the terrace and the bedroom was so dark in the evening. I think some lamps in the cealing would be great. Not nightopen reception which was not the best idea from the owners. A night watch should be there.
