Dar Assalama
Ranked #43 of 180 Essaouira B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 March 2017 via mobile

A little and clean riad with super friendly people.
The riad itself is a bit hidden inside the medina, but the people who work or run the place are really nice and will make you feel like home. Plus point for Mr. Omar. But he also forgot to get us a taxi on our arrival time in Marrakech to bring us to essaouira, so we ended up waiting for almost two hours till the new pick up arrive. But he said it was his mistake, so at least he admitted that it was his fault.
Mr. Omar organized an early breakfast for us, at 5.30 in the morning. We told him it would be ok if its only coffee and croissants. But of course we've got the full package, thanks again Mr. Omar. And the boy who prepared it for us. Would love to come back to this place again next time.
Thanks for the hospitality

This is a nice place, perfect to relax. Essaouira is a beautiful place: the Ocean, the small streets, the smell of spices, the surfers hanging around... you'll like it.
And then, you will be back at the Dar Assalama, where the beautiful smiles of the staff will make you feel at home. Great breakfast too!

This place is tucked away in a back alley but it's totally worth the detour.

This is because it offers astounding value for money - I paid approx £15/night for a triple room with ensuite, a lavish breakfast and snacks & refreshments on demand. What's more, the views from the terrace, the friendly service and the cozy architecture make a stay all the more enjoyable and stress-free.

If you can forget the rubble outside and the slight lugubriousness inside, you'll realize there's nothing to fault.

I don't think I have ever been on a trip where the hotel was the highlight. We went at a very unfortunate time where it rained extremely heavily for two days, unusually for the region in May.

the price was excellent (by worldwide standards) and the quality was very high.

The room was very nice, the owner of the hotel was extremely professional, pleasant and accommodating. he allowed us to pick a room. I noticed people drinking a milkshake made from avocado when i was in town, and asked him what it was called so i could order it. He told us it was just 'jus d'avocat', but also made us a really superb one for breakfast the following morning with dates blended in.

breakfast was large and a bit like a continental style breakfast, with lots of starchy items. There was bread with jams and syrups, a croissant, pancakes and a fried egg.

It poured with rain, and the owner went and found us umbrellas. He also gave us a corkscrew (on the day it was not raining) so we could go out and enjoy our bottle of wine. he also gave us lots of little biscuits and snacks while were were there. he was hospitable and exceptionally helpful indeed. I thoroughly recommend this Riad and would return to it is I am ever in Essaouira again.
