Excellent location on the edge of the Medina in a wide side street. Friendly staff, especially the charming breakfast waiters, one of whom recommended walks and drives in the locality which were very helpful. The hotel was having a an end of season spruce in the corridors as we left, ready for the next season. Our room was beautifully clean,...

We stayed as a family here 5 years ago, and had a great time. We were in Essaouira again this year and popped into the Palais for lunch- the roof-top restaurant has one of the best views in town, and the food and service were both as good as we remembered. Definitely worth checking out, even if just for a...

Frankly I don't understand how there is so many positive reviews for this hotel. Palais des Remparts was unfriendly, beds uncomfortable, atmosphere quite depressing and the premises much in need of repair. The best things about this hotel is the location. We were greeted without a smile or a hello, instead we got "fill out this form". Once we were...

The breakfast is wonderful..the panoramic views of the crashing waves..just be careful the seagulls love butter! The staff is professional and very friendly. I will return SOON!

The hotel sports a very nice rooftop terrace with a splendid view over the city, the ramparts and the sea. It's also open to non hotel guests. Very good place to have a morning coffee since they serve the best coffee in town, including a bottle of water for a very reasonable price.

So sad that we only have to stay here for only a night. I could stay here for weeks or make it my home. This is located just a few steps away from the medina. The rooftop offers a spectacular view of the ocean.. It really gets cold at night but they have provided heaters in the rooms. The dinner...

We were part of a group of 10 photographers, and spent our first two nights in Morocco in this lovely hotel. Breakfast and dinner were included in our room, and both were very good. Breakfast was served in a glassed-in section of the rooftop, and dinner was in a small dining room on the first floor. We learned during our...

In the middle of the old medina, beautiful welcoming riad, loads of charm and very professional staff. Beautiful rooms, great terrace where one can really understand the city, The rooms are large and beautifully furbished, A realm pleasure, quiet hotel with good food too. One m-of my "coup de coeur" in Morocco.

Stayed two nights at the end of a fifteen-day G Adventures tour. The two things we liked the best about Palais des Remparts were its location in the Medina, which was within easy walking distance of most sites, and the rooftop terrace from which you could gaze out over the Atlantic and Sqala on one side and the Medina on...
