Large riad/hotel, nice spacious very clean rooms, good Moroccan style breakfast sweet rather than savoury, eggs available for extra 150 dirham, wifi is intermittent in rooms but constant in lobby, staff very helpful with good English. Location is excellent just outside Medina, close to harbour and taxi rank too. You need to remember is not European so vive la difference,...

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Essaouira. The location was great, right at the heart of the city. The breakfast was very good. The room really exceeded my expectations...just beautiful. A+

The pure minimalist beauty of the hotel. Whoever designed the interior really got it right. Very good staff. Breakfast is simple but fine. All personnel are friendly and helpful. It's a place one is happy to return to after walking all day. The lounge is pleasant and a great place to meet other travellers. Very near everything.

The hotel is located just at the entrance of the medina, so location is perfect. Also it isn't located on place where a lot of people pass by, so it is very quiet. It takes less than 5 min to get to the beach. Our room was on the top floor, and it was very nice, clean, spacious and the...

It's by the main square, main streets, port, beach, practically everything. The room we had was clean and beautiful. The staff was really helpful, very polite and not annoying at all. Great breakfast, good laundry service. Amazing...
