Hotel Les Matins Bleus
Ranked #18 of 75 Hotels in Essaouira
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 February 2012

It's tucked down a rather unattractive lane, just off a minor touristy street but don't let that put you off. The entrance seems guarded by a rather large but friendly cat but inside is a little calm oasis.

The ground floor has a variety of snugs and rooms; there are books, a stereo with an expansive cd collection and free internet access. The owners offered a warm, yet unobtrusive service advising on all things local and beyond.

Our room on the roof was pleasant and large enough, spotlessly clean with a regular maid service. There is a roof terrace to sit in the morning sun. It also has a washer and lines for those long term adventurers who are travelling light and need to refresh their wardrobe.

Breakfast was OK; bread, a pain au chocolat and pancake, served with wonderful fresh orange juice.

Quirky, honest and unique. Well worth a visit

Room Tip: There are two suites which looked fab, if you want to spoil yourself

When we arrived at Les Matins Bleus it was just after a massive downpour, and the hotel was flooded! Staff were very apologetic and brought us some mint tea, and it was soon dry. The room we had was a good size - fairly basic, but good for the price. The staff were very friendly and helpful, bringing us a radiator to dry our wet clothes and lending us an umbrella! Breakfast was very generous.

It was a shame we saw Essaouria and Les Matins Bleus in the rain as I'm sure this would be an especially nice place in the sunshine - there's a great roof terrace. We had a very comfortable stay, and I would recommend it for its good value and great location.

Although this may not happen to you, the hotel put us up in one of their suites at no extra charge because they had no more doubles available. The hotel location is excellent, right inside the old fortress walls. The rooms are nice, and each one seemed to have its own character. The hotel staff/owners was extremely friendly, and offered up helpful tips on carpets and restaurants. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

Sadly we had only one night at Les Matins Bleus but we loved this friendly little hotel. The staff are super-friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is basic but hearty and will set you up for the day. Architecturally it's gorgeous.

We had two rooms up on the roof - small, clean, rather basic, but fabulous value. The location at the heart of the medina is just perfect and I certainly intend to go back,

You won't find a better place to stay in the medina. Lovely people, excellent facilities and a good breakfast. Thoroughly recommended.

LMB used to be a family home, and you could sense that from the moment you step inside. It has that certain charm only a home can exude – the organised clutter, the lived-in, laidback feel. Nothing “sterile” about this place – everything is genuine and lively, from the decor to the proud hosts – Samir, Youseff and Khalid. The rest of the staff is equally lovely, always with a smile to spare.
The room we had on the terrace was clean and basic, but bright and airy. The furnishings are simple by Moroccan-riad standards, but was a welcome break from the heavily-zellij-ed walls, ceilings and tables, tassled pillows and curtains, lovely as they were, that we had gotten used to by then. We kept the windows open even at night to let the breeze in and to listen to the seagulls, and had our best sleep in Morocco right here.
LMB is a pleasant walking-distance to anywhere in the medina – the scenic Skala, the intriguing mellah, the Parisian-style cafes, the Ensemble Artisanal and the busy harbour, are all reachable in 20 minutes tops, including the beach. Make Bab Dakkala your point of reference, and you’ll most unlikely to get lost. In any case, Samir or Youssef at LMB will give you a verbal orientation of the medina on your first day and supply you with a map, in case you do.
My main concern then was how far we’d have to walk from the Supratour bus terminal to LMB (no motorised vehicles allowed within the medina). Thankfully, not far – approximately 10 minutes and with the ever-present porters (with surprisingly clean push-carts!) at the terminal, lugging your luggage through the cobbled and sandy streets of the medina is the least of your worry. Be prepared to pay 20 dirhams for the services.
This may sound cliché, corny even, but there’s really no other way of describing LMB other than it really is, a home away from home!

Room Tip: Nothing beats the airy, bright & breezy room on the terrace!

I was in Les Matins Bleus for about a week in September 2011. I was travelling solo and I higly recommend the place. Very well located in the heart of the Medina but easy to acces at. 5 min walk to the beach. Free wifi everywhere in the hotel. Rooms impecably clean and well decorated and delicious breakfast. Last but by no means least all the staff is very friendly and helpful.
