“City center, fair offer.”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Nice Location, terrace, staff, late check-in.

You should be ready for windows in to internal courtyard which means no fresh air in the room. But it's quite common for Riads.
Bed was not very comfortable.
No fruits for breakfast (but terrace compensates this).

Stayed here for one night in February, which was a great base as was so central to everything. Wifi connection was great. Decor is a little tired, though the rooms where pretty spacious. Overall it was what we needed for one night as it was great value for money.

This hotel is located central of Essaouira and with a balcony view for some it can be a great hotel. The rooms are very clean and the staff are quite friendly and helpful but if your are looking for morrocan charm then this is not the place as a riad Is defiantly the way forward. Nothing wrong at all with this hotel it's just your premier lodge of Morocco ( unfortunately we were spoilt at our last hotel in Marrakesh which was a riad and that was beautiful!!!)

Reviewed 22 November 2013

So often Moroccan riads and hotels offer only cramped rooms and bathrooms. The wind palace stands out for offering spacious rooms with decent sized bathrooms. Though located on a main walking street in the centre of the media rooms are quiet---ours, number 17, had a balcony overlooking the street. Furnishings are rather Spartan and what there was could be freshened up with some colour.
