Breakfast. The best yet. Hot toast was awesome after getting bread everywhere else.
The room was very small and nowhere to put luggage. The bathroom was a very tight squeeze. It was extremely noisy at night with locals yelling loudly and motor bikes until 3 or 4 in the morning. The location in the centre of the medina was not good. The stairway was narrow and dark and very difficult to get our bags up two steep flights of stairs. We would not recommend this riad.
the room was extremely damp and had no external window, made it very uncomfortable and difficult to sleep well. Having to keep the door open for ventilation compromised privacy.
all good apart from the lack of english which is not a problem. You are visiting them so the language they speak you should be thankful they put up with you not knowing it!
The Riad is super just watch yourself on the streets around it no problem for me, but just advise I know how to stop people following me some people dont
Riad Le Grande Large is localized in the centre of the old medina so it's close to all the tourist attractions, but if you get a room on the main street side be prepared that it will be rather noisy! The room itself was comfortable and sunny, cleaned everyday, bathroom had hot water 24h/day (as in the majority of Morrocan riads that we've been to it takes quite a long time for the water to warm up, but with a bit of patience it eventually gets there!). Breakfast is simple but very tasty (bread, butter, jams, honey, eggs or omelets, orange juice, tea, coffe) and is served on the terrace which is really nice way to start the day. Overall, one of them best riads e've been in Morroco!
Not really a complaint, rather a tip that if the wifi in the riad is not working, ask the staf to turn off/on the router, it helped everytime:)
Very good wi-fi connection with enough signal even in the room. Great breakfast.
A bit of noise from the street when window opened (normal for all medinas).
good central location, breakfast served in the terrace,10 minutes walking from the bus station
no tv in the room, 1st floor rooms affected from the outside noise
Really friendly staff, very helpful in every way. Beautiful spacious room. Rooftop terrace gorgeous with great view of medina. Comfy bed, good shower with plenty of hot water. Excellent breakfast, including newly baked bread and freshly squeezed orange juice, all prepared as you waited
A room fan would have been good. Noisy street at night.
very friendly service, room and bathroom very spacy, all clean, legendary breakfast included in the price! its on the terracce! good to find, in the middle of medina. took visacard without problems. highly recommended!
Friendly staff Good breakfast Great terrace Nice and quiet room Cleaning & towels changed everyday
Humidity due to no windows in our room. Bad GPS coordinates - the problems seems to concern every riad in marroco medina ☺
Good location. Very nice breakfast, aa specialy the egg omlet:)
Very,very slow breakfast service.
The staff at this riad was extremely lovely and helpful, breakfast was amazing, a great view from the terrace and my room was superb. Can't beat this for location either, right in the middle of the Medina. Wish I could have staid longer but would definitely return.
Great location in the old town. Lovely breakfast on roof terrace. Friendly staff. Nice room.
A bit noisy at night due to location but we didn't mind as we wanted a central location.
The 4 staff members, both reception and cooking/ cleaning employees we met were excellent. Without hesitation they booked our bike rentals, changed our room location, due to Ramadan celebration noise volume and contacted the airport for us confirming our next flight the following day.
The noise level during Ramadan is a bit difficult to sleep through when the bedroom window is facing the main Madina road - no fault of the hotel however, a heads up.
The guy at reception only speaks Arab... He scratches a bit of French.. Was very hard to comunicate
we are still staying in the riad, we like it so much so we extended our stay! really friendly and nice people, the location is great, rooms are very clean and the furniture is nice too. for our next stay in essaouira, we will definitly stay here again thanks to the grand large :) lars&lisa
great breakfast, friendly staff
poor wifi connection
The location is great, in the middle of the centre!
Lovely staff, great location, very clean, huge breakfast!
small rooms but very cosy and well decorated.
First place I stayed in Morocco and was everything I expected a riad to be. Beautiful roof terrace, great place for breakfast and to read in the afternoon.
Huge room and very comfy! Thr staff was lovely, breakfast girls were amazingly polite and kind! We'll definitely be back!
Location is good, in the middle of medina, everywher close. Breakfast was good as well on the roof
facilities a bit old, shower gets block
Rooms face either the street or the internal reception area, both of which are quite noisy
Ideal location in the medina. Within minutes of everything.
Noises at night made it hard to sleep. Breakfast service was very slow.
Breakfast is very good and is served on the terrace. The location is very good for anyone who wants to walk around in the medina and visit the center. However, being so close to the medina is a bit noisy. The room was very clean. I recommend this Riad.
The bed was not very comfortable.
Good central location in the Medina. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Good breakfast. Excellent rooftop terrace.
If you want to eat there in the evening you need to give them several hours notice.
