This place is just beautiful, the architecture and the decoration is very charming. And the staff, Munir and Hassan, were really helpful. We asked for a quiet room and got one on the top most floor with its own balcony. The street is a bit noisy but it didn't bother us. Breakfast was very nice as well.

We stopped three nights at this hotel in Essaouira which was very comfortable & clean. As we were right in the Medina it was quite noisy at night. Overall we felt Palazzo Desdemona was very good value for money. Be careful of a scam running at the car park next to the Port right in front of the Medina. When...

Even two days before our arrival this dudes from the hotel (which by the way is owned by a french woman ) was already overbooked. The wanted to place us 20 km outside of essaoura in the...

I absolutely love this hotel! I stayed here twice, once many years ago and once last year. First I was afraid to come back because often you are disappointed when coming back to a place that you loved the first time around. But in the end I decided to go for it - and it was as charming and beautiful...

We were in the Palazzo Desdemona with two children (9 and 10), and both suites we stayed in were very suitable. It is a very stylish hotel, with lots of charm, very cheerful and friendly staff and a breakfast to look forward to every day (esp. liked the home-made yoghurt).

The first plus was that, in addition to the bookings.com confirmation, we received a personal mail from the hotel confirming the arrangements. There followed a dialogue about arrival times which was reassuring. Hotel is in an excellent location within the medina and five or more minutes by foot from the Suprabus stop. Next to a Societe Generale cash machine. We...

The ground floor is a pleasant salon de the where they serve breakfast( included in the price.) My room was clean and comfortable. It was up a couple of flights of steep narrow stairs and...

An outstanding family run hotel in the very centre of the old Medina. Our room was typically Moroccan decor, clean, and a pleasure to spend 3 nights in. Delightful staff who speak excellent English. Very nice breakfast and all well priced. No alcohol but there are several bars in the town. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We had a very simply furnished room and bathroom on the top floor of the hotel and up several flights of steep stairs – note that there is no lift!! From the little balcony outside our room we had views over the rooftops of Essaouira. The port and the souks are short walk away, and the staff were very friendly...
