Such a good hotel, after a disastorous night in another hostel, clean rooms, spacious, excellent staff and a brilliant price. You can see the High Atlas from the roof terrace which serves drinks and food at good prices. Really highly recommended

Very noisy in rooms on ground floor. We were woke early by people checking out early. Beautiful tiles throughout but this just adds to the echo of noisy neighbours! Room simple and small. Terrace pretty but a little crowded with rooftop guests. We stayed just one night before heading across the street to a quieter and cheaper riad.

We stayed in this hotel for about a week at the beginning of July. It was nicely decorated, traditional Moroccan style, and had a lot of character. We paid 30 dirham a night, which was about £2.35 to sleep on the roof, wouldn't of wanted a room - far too hot. The roof was great, big with cushions, lot of...

Hotel Essaouira is a great place to stay. The hotel is beautiful and excellent value for money. The rooms are simple but the courtyard and roof terrace with view and live sound from the Jemaa el Fna makes it perfect. We where there in 2007 and you can only make a reservation by phone (we could only book two days...

Tried to book big sister property Jnane Mogador at last minute. When arrived there, was told it was full but there was a room just down the alley at the Essaouria.... Indeed, while the Essaouria, though quite beautiful inside with the standard fountain in courtyard, and impressively painted ceilings etc, generally features quite basic small rooms (shared bath), it does...

We spent nearly a week in this hotel during December 07'. This place has got to be one of the best value-for-money hotels in Marrakech. We paid 100 Dirhams for 2 people each night, which roughly equates to £6.40 or $12.5. There are other hotels nearby with similar prices, but this one was in recommended in our guidebook. You probably...

A great little hotel. On a quiet road but right in the middle of the action. Less than 5 mins to Djemaa el Fna. Taxi from the airport during the day should cost no more than 80dh but they can't take you straight to the hotel. The taxi will drop you off by Djemaa el Fna and you will go...
