Riad Zelaka

Reviewed 19 May 2012

I spent a great time at Riad Zelaka with its very nice team, Laure, Hasna and Amina. They are very friendly and always ready to help. Very good food and rooms are comfortable. It is right in the Medina close to Bab Marrakech, so it's very close to everything.
If you come to Essaouira, that is the place to stay!

We booked our 5 nights through booking.com knowing it could have been a risk but it was totally not! The position is great (2 minutes by a car parking outside the medina where you'll find moroccans ready to help with luggages with their small charettes for few coins and at less than 10 minutes from the centre of the medina. 10 minutes to reach the sea), the rooms were clean and spacious. Great breakfast and they also cook dinner on request, great as well.
The only pity is that none there speak good english so sometimes it could take a little time to understand each other but they are so friendly & helpful that you will not care.
Wonderful days.

My husband and I stayed for one night at Riad Zelaka. We planned on arriving at a good time to relax and see more of Essouira as it was our second visit to Essouira. Unfortunatley, we arrived later than we intended to therefore not getting the chance to take full advantgae of the lovely Riad. Stephen the owner made us comfortable as soon as we arrived. The atmosphere at the Riad was clam and inviting. We loved the decor. Breakfast was yummy. We would defo stay again, next time for a few days, especially if we can get the offer again.

We arrived at Riad Zelaka, not really knowing what to expect having found it online at a ridiculously good price.

It turns out it's as good, if not better than it seems.

Lovely people, friendly staff, beautiful, clean and truly excellent value for, money.

Make sure you get Hassan's number offline before you arrive though as it can be a bit of a tough one to find amongst the laberinthyne backstreets of Essaouira.

We loved it!
