Riad Etoile d'Essaouira was a home for our group for two weeks. Lovely and hassle free riad. Classical Morrocan breakfast served every morning at the rooftop.

This old riad is in the Medina but very close to the main square and the port area. I had a room with a window overlooking the central courtyard.

I chose this hotel for its location which is very central. I stayed here for 2 nights and got a nice, spacious room on the 1st floor, facing the street. I was afraid it would be noisy but it wasn't! The shops close at 20h in winter and all was quiet. Breakfast, served on the rooftop, is good. I had...

It was amazing experience to stay in this riad for a few nights. We got a big room on a first floor with a view to local market. During the breakfast we had the best time in this riad, it is served on the rooftop and freshly made when you come. Location is perfect to get around old Medina and...

The room was too small, no privacy, you listen the people outside of your door and the opposite, too noisy, the bathroom was awfull. The morning we left there weren't electricity to whole riad!!!! We prepared our things in the dark with our iphone torches!! We ask for a Taxi and he didn't call us!

A lovely place to recover. It's central of the medina. Only 5min to the ports and citywalls. Clean beds, warm water and perfect breakfast at the top of the riad. At the reception we get a citymap with all important Information. Without to ask! They are so friendly. You have to visit.
