In the old medina (historic quarter) of Essaouira, Riad Dar Ichraq is within easy reach of the beach, historic monuments and the souks (markets). It offers traditional rooms and a terrace.

This Riad is in the center of Essaouira just steps from the port and beach. Each traditional Moroccan room at the Riad Chakir Mogador has a private bathroom and a sitting area.

Wifi quite weak in rooms or non existent in terrace.
It's a pleasure stay in a place like this. Warm smiling people. Lovely couple, special mention for the power mamma, and the kids running the ryad. Good breakfast. Easy going. Small nice details. I really recommend this place cos it's run with love and dedication. And that in the messy morroco it's a good point.

The rooms could be a bit larger. The bathroom would benefit from a shower curtain.
Convenient location, very good breakfast, kids corner, owners giving very practical advice on restaurants or reliable shops

A huge thank you to our wonderful Riad hosts at Lyon Mogador. We loved our stay here- the rooms and house are very stylish and beautifully clean- and the delicious breakfast on the rooftop terrace overlooking the waves was stunning. All of this plus mint tea and conversation with Loriel and Didier. Thank you- we will look forward to returning and couldn't recommend it highly enough!

We stayed at the second floor. Water pressure was low hence would be good if a water pump could be installed to ensure constant water pressure throughout.
Location was good, well within the medina. Host was friendly and helpful in providing us with directions and bearing within the medina to the places of interest. Breakfast was good too.

Perfect hosts ++ We were made to feel like part of the family coming and going as we pleased. Nothing was too much trouble. Well trained and attentive staff. Delicious and varied breakfasts on the roof top terrace. Very good location for the Medina and the fantastic beach and fishing port. A meal, or more, at nearby Triskala restaurant should not be missed. We had the Cornut room which we will certainly book again.

The themed bedrooms are not my thing. A bit kitsch.
I loved the interiors and the location. Breakfast was the best I had during my whole stay in Morocco. The owners are extremely helpful and kind

This was my second stay and it certainly won't be my last. My absolute favorite Riad in Essaouira, it's so easy to find, the staff and owners are sweet and helpful and that rooftop view! Lovely breakfast as well. Sigh.

A bit noisy from the street
The owners make you feel like at home or visiting long time friends, tastefully decorated rooms, good location, excellent breakfast with a some changes every day, beautiful sunset at terrace. Highly recommended and after three weeks throughout Morocco we can say that it is highly underrated.

We had a twin room which had no exterior window so room was a bit dark and damp- but looking round hotel lots of other light and quirky rooms.
Friendly staff and great views at breakfast, which was one of the best in Morocco. Also good location to the Medina.

Everything at all. This is not the first time we've been in this riad. Last year we've been there for a week and the experience was so possitive that we've repeated. The best: the owners, they're very kind and they are always trying to make you feel at home (and they get it!). The girls who work in the riad are very helpful too and the breakfasts in the terrace with Essaouira in your eye are unforgettable. We'll come back next year, Inshallah!!

Location is great. In old medina,near bus station and port. Hard to find without a map or help. Staff speak only french,except the owner. Wi-Fi is poor,and not in the room,but this is everywhere in Moroc riads,because of the stone walls. Room little cold and wet,because of the climate. Medina is nice and colourful.

Little cold water in the evening, shower/bath smells when open, little noice from the street.
Very charming Riad, nice staff and great breakfast on a great terrace.

Bathroom's shower had little pressure and little hot water, but no pain !
Location Amazing quality of breakfast on the rooftop Nice furniture and internal design Nice staff

No-one spoke English, which is not a must but could have made our stay in the riad easier. The room has no ventilation and therefore it was rather damp after a whole day with the door closed. The bathroom in the room is not closed up (the top of the wall is open), so there is a lack of privacy that people might want to take into consideration when booking here.
Amazing view from the terrace, the riad is fairly easy to find. The owner is welcoming. Breakfast served in the terrace was good.

English of personnel (including the French owner) was limited Pressure on sanitary water system was off between 8am-9am, because too many people were showering at the same time Very humid room Toilet was not able to flush number two
Nice breakfast on the beautiful rooftop terrace! Good location

A bit noisey

Good location in the centre of the Medina but not the easiest to find, so use a porter. Great breakfasts, which varied each day, served on the roof terrace with a view over the rooftops, and on to the sea. Frendly staff.

Language barrier, but that was more our fault than theirs... looking for a language school!
Great location, lovely staff, amazing breakfast... and a beautiful rooftop terrace.
