Walk through the front doors and you feel transported. From the fountain and lush plants in the middle, to the decor you really feel you are in Morocco. Very clean and comfortable rooms. A big plus, they will do your laundry overnight and charge by kilo not by piece. Big savings. Easily could have stayed here longer.

This riad has all the feautures that a tourist needs, cause it is cheap, beautiful and central. It was very enjoyable staying for two nights at this riad, eating a delicious breakfast at morning (fresh orange juice, berber tea or whatever you prefer, maroccan crepes, jams and more) in a very maroccan and suggestive atmosphere. Our room was big and... More

Staff went out of their way to help us for food, hairdryers, nail clippers, nothing was too much trouble! Rose petals was the final lovely touch on our dinner table on our special day. Authentic and homely riad, great baked breakfast or pancakes, croissants, baguettes and freshly squeezed orange juice. What more would you want, a few steps from the... More

Great location, clean room and very helpful staff! Breakfast was included. I enjoyed sitting in the courtyard drinking my cup of coffee. Check out the rooftop terrace for a treat. The rooms were small and our bathroom even smaller, water pressure was very low, but it was a small sacrifice for all the other good things about this place.

Location is the best feature of this Riad - twenty metres from the center of the main street of the old town. The rooms and facilities are small and are permeated by the moist atmospheric conditions. The staff are friendly and serve a good breakfast.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a tour. Great central location in Essaouira. The riad is on a quiet side alley, yet steps away from one of the main streets through the medina. The interior of this hotel are gorgeous (and something of a rabbit warren!). The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and there is a lovely... More

It was probably the best breakfast served compared to any other riad. I loved the local pancakes. Very friendly staff that gave us a lot of local insights. The rooms were very beautiful and interior was very nicely decorated. I certainly would stay here again. The terrace was quiet but no views.

This was such a delightful jewel right in the middle of the Medina (old town). This is a charming boutique hotel. It is beautifully decorated in traditional style but has a modern standard of service. Breakfast was typically Moroccan and excellent, the staff and service superb. 30 metres away was the bustle of the traders yet the hotel itself was... More

This Riad is very well located on a side street right off the main drag. The public areas were nicely furnished and breakfast was substantial and made to order. The rooms could use some additional lighting at the bedside but were otherwise clean and comfortable.
