Riad Saltana was just what we needed after my friend ruptured his Achilles the first day we arrived in Marrakech. Upon arrival to saltana, Geraldine put us into a larger room and gave us all kinds of information about taxis, places to eat, pharmacies, etc. She helped us arrange to purchase a wheelchair so that we could enjoy our remaining...

Riad Sultana is a beautiful, traditional building which has been decorated to maintain the authenticity yet not compromising any comfort! The sea view terrace is breathtaking. We sat there every evening enjoying the sunshine and taking in the ambiance of the magical walled city, Essaouira. Hostess, Geraldine is an amazing host. We were made to feel welcome from the minute... More

The owner is as fake as a wedding cake! She welcomed us and was all smileys but when we told her that we put two single beds together she flipped, was very aggressive and dismissed us with a gesture. The rooms were not clean and we asked for them to be cleaned again. There's no internet in the rooms. The... More

Hello Monsieur Sam H, I absolutely want to indicate that you made a terrible mistake and that your comment refers to another riad (there is probably a confusion with riad “Les Sultanes”) and not to Riad Saltana. Indeed, I did’nt welcome any people coming from Cyprus in my riad. In our riad, the cleanliness is irreproachable and the household is... More

The position was excellent, beds very comfortable and communal areas were smart whilst feeling homely. Everything was constantly tidy and kept very clean. What we particularly liked was our hostess, Geraldine, who could not have been more accommodating or friendly, as were her staff. Breakfast was served on the terrace and was plentiful and filling. Transport to and from the... More

Stayed here recently and despite suffering with a broken rib Geraldine was the perfect host. The room was good value for money, the roof terrace where breakfast was served offered great views across the city and of the sea.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the old medina of Essaouira (Mogador), close to the ramparts and to the Skala, ideally located between the port, the beach and the souks, discover the charm of a riad with fresh and soft colors, with the one of the most beautiful terraces with panoramic ocean view. Geraldine gets you in this riad entirely refurbished in May 2015 according to European quality standards, riad with a great location for those who want to reside quietly in the heart of the city. The riad is a charming old house, with double and triple rooms. You can also enjoy another terrace sheltered from the wind on an intermediate floor. You will find the architecture of traditional Moroccan houses in Moorish style, Greco Roman columns and arches with exposed stone, but also all the comfort for a nice stay. All rooms have a private bathroom. You can enjoy your breakfast or meals on either of the two terraces. Free WIFI on the ground floor. The area : In the direction of Skala by Laalouj street, take Touahen street on the right before the ramparts. Saltana Riad is at the end of this street, near the small grocery store. ... more   less
