8/10 Very good

Good location
We arrived early so our room wasn't ready. We did check in a drop the bags. When we went to collect the bags there was a whole family at the reception ( the owners i guess) and the french man wouldn't even get up from the couch the get the bags as he was lying down watching tv. After making some gestures he did. We were never informed about breakfast so we paid for breakfast outside the premises ( my bad for not checking my booking but I would have expected to be informed about at the check in). We were on the first floor and at night it got so loud as people was chatting in the reception until about 11 and some others coming and going. The lack of a water fountain makes the riad quite noisy. But overall is a good place to stay, clean and cute room and very well located.

Relatively good central hotel
Good central place in medinah. Room slightly small with lack of storage space. Smell of damp from the bathroom, which could use some maintenance. Good breakfast.

4/10 Fair

Convenient and a nice receptionist/host. Cheapish. However, room was dilapidated, small and smelt a bit damp. Don't pay for a superior room, they all seem basic and small, with the possible exception of the 6 bed room which I didn't see. Not a room to sit in and enjoy: bed, table, no space or view. Functional at best. Floor was clean but fixtures (shelf, taps, toilet seat) all run down, scratched and stained. Breakfast VERY basic. Quick, cheap sleep maybe, but it's not a place to enjoy in itself.

No daily housekeeping as promised
The hosts were very friendly but we were disappointed that there was no daily housekeeping as it stated . We got 3 towels and half a toilet roll when we arrived on Wednesday and no none came near our room before we left on Saturday

Please visit Essaouira and this riad!
Very nice place to stay, good location and the hosts (french couple) extremely friendly and helpful. On our last day we needed to catch an early bus, and would have missed breakfast but the owner was nice enough to have breakfast served earlier for us. That was much appreciated before our long journey on the bus.

It was a very simple riad. The beds were clean and the staff was nice and helpful. Shower was a tad on the small side and wasn’t really powerful and the first day we had no hot water. It was fine for our stay though. The beds were clean and fairly comfortable. The room seemed a bit dusty but it was otherwise clean
