Very beautiful riad, located in a nice area of old medina, walking distance to all the attractions (and the bus station). Breakfast was great. The owner was very kind and prompt in responses to all inquiries (and fluent in multiple languages). We had a great stay and will come back again.

Fine to be cute but a real toilet door please
The place is fine overall but the lack of a door for the toilet instead of saloon doors that while lovely provide no privacy. The Wi Fi sort of works but is not great. Breakfast and relatively cheap beer were good. Sketchy characters smoking marijuana hang out near the place at night but pose no real risk. Staff did not help with getting bags up to second floor so have no expectations about that. Breakfast ladies were friendly.

A beautiful riad with a pretty rooftop terrace. The room was cosy & the bed was heaven. The mattress was so soft & good. The best bes i had in my stay in Morocco thus far. The breakfast spread was good & delicous too. The staircase though was like a mountain climb especially with heavy luggages. But it was only a minute of pain.

J'ai trouve Essaouira très sale, ils devront se ressaisir , s'ils veulent retrouver une clientèle de touristes et non de hippies . Le Riad est bien placé , mais trop humide , manque de ventilation et climatisation. Petit déjeuner bien.
