I read a review on Conde Nast about La Maison des Artistes and made a last minute booking not knowing what to expect. I was delighted with my choice; the place is bursting with Moroccan curios, art work and has a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Isabelle is a wonderful host, she gave great recommendations on where to visit, where...

La Maison des Artistes is a great place if you like a bohemian touch to your lodging, without lacking the small touches of luxury/special attentions. Isabel, the owner is very attentive, helps with anything needed from dry cleaning, to serving an excellent, in the majority organic breakfats on the terrace to helping with local bookings of hammams and restaurants. When...

Quirky and artistically decorated with many surrealist pictures, sculptures and objects d'art . Isabelle is an excellent host; always interested and keen to be of help. Going out of her way to make life easier and organise any trips. We loved our time there, the loft was superb with panoramic sea views. It felt like an artists eyrie....flooded with light...

Reading previous reviews and looking at photographs of 'La Maison des Artistes' we were feeling excited about our stay. When we arrived we were overwhelmed by a strong smell of musty cat pee and a hotel that was clearly in need of a good clean! Everything looked dirty, the whole place smelt terrible and the furniture tired and worn. The...

This is an absolutely terrific place. The view is magnificent and the location is right in the heart of medina, the best part of it. Isabelle the owner is a very kind person and you get every support you need. The place is also special because many movies have been shot here, e.g. Gladiator or Game of Thrones. I had...

Another return visit for us to this fascinating property in a city that is in the midst of change, yet is still well worth a visit. Isabelle and her team ensure that all is done to make guests really welcome in her uniquely furnished home: and a sunset viewed over the ramparts from the terrace is very special. It would...

I was going to stay here but had an accident which made it impossible for me to climb steps. Isabelle was in touch with me a lot during my reservation process and later as well. She was always extremely kind and understanding. I know that she would treat all her customers in such a way and I am really sorry...

This is fairly easy to find amongst the traders in Essaouira. Luxurious rooms excellently decorated and very fun staff made our stay perfect. A very very cool place that really does bring out the artist in you with stunning sea views.

I loved my stay at La Maison des Artistes! Isabel, the proprietor, has an artistic sensibility and care for her guests that is unmatched in Essaouira. Her "maison" is filled with art from Morocco and sub-Saharan Africa and she has decorated each room in a personal meaningful style. She upgraded me to a terrace room reminiscent of Madame Bovary, punctuated...
