I had the most fabulous room, enormous, on the corner so a lot of light with windows on both sides. The shower was huge, enough towels, although the toiletries advertised was just a tiny bar of soap so make sure you take your own.
The location of this riad is right in the centre of town, on one of the two main roads so as soon as you walk out you're in the middle of the shopping area. The staff are very helpful and reception staff speak pretty good English, which is quite unusual in Morocco.
The breakfast is quite bland, just coffee / tea / bread / jam / honey although they did oblige when I asked for an egg.
Wifi is only available in the downstairs area, not in the rooms at all.
It was ok to pay by credit card, again not all riads were as obliging.
I would definitely recommend this riad and would stay there again if I visit Essaouira again.
