We stayed here some weeks ago, for 5 days, and the unique building, the awesome decoration, and the service is really 5 star . Check in was warm and welcoming. Mamadou with his big smile is so helpful and friendly,and specially front managers Naima and Mohamed, and all the others did everything to help and to please us. Big compliments!...

We give this hotel our highest recommendation for service - what a lovely and fantastic staff, especially Kamal and so many others who made us feel very welcome from the minute we checked in throughout our stay. And this must be the most fabulous rooftop terrace and pool area in all of Essaouria. We spent one whole day there lounging...

This hotel was small and very well done! It's at the entrance of the medina which was a little chaotic at first. The giant trees in the foyer were a nice touch. The room had a fireplace and the rooftop was really amazing! We loved it here.

Adjacent to the ancient medina of Essaouria the Heure Bleue is a restored building in the style of a Riad - 4 floors built around a central courtyard enclosing a beautiful garden. All of the rooms open to the attractive and bright courtyard. The rooms are well furnished in a style evoking Morroco in the '30s. The location is within...

This is the best hotel in Essaouira and one of the nicest I've stayed in anywhere! The rooms are pure 1930s style Moroccan luxury - think if Agatha Christie had set a murder mystery in Morocco! A cross between a Sultan's dream and a gentlemen's club. The rooftop sun deck is a great place to swim, read relax and catch...

This is probably one of the most atmospherically charming old world romantic hotels that I've stayed in. It's has a real Casablanca "play it again Sam" kinda feel. The dark wood panelling of the restaurants and bar with animal skins and with the scent of old leather and cigars is intoxicating. The room is just as charming with a central...

I have been visiting this hotel various times as I own a house in Essaouira and was never impressed by their hospitality. Tonight we went for cocktails; we were 3 and paid 50 euro's, returning at 21.40 for dinner and being told the kitchen is closed. After saying we didn't understand and walking to the reception, the manager and receptionist...

This hotel really made my whole trip to Essaouira special, it was absolutely one of my favorite parts about this city! You escape the hustle and bustle of the Medina into this beautiful, tranquil, and calm courtyard full of palm trees when you walk in the door. The rooftop pool deck is great not just for the pool, but I...

Based on the edge of the medina this hotel is very much at the top on customer service.Nothing is too much trouble and they are very proactive. The location is perfect for either the town and only a few hundred metres from the beach. Really enjoyed our 4 nights and look forward to revisiting this lovely hotel

I loved this hotel. The location is excellent. There's a very old-worldy charm to the decor. The staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was impressive. My only regret was having no time for the spa, definitely next time!
