Great location in the Heart of Essaouira.
The Riad Al Madina is a great Moroccan hotel in the heart of a truly amazing place. From stepping out of the front door you are in the narrow paved streets of the Madina. This is the Third time I have stayed here and would return again.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Room comfort
A very good bargain.
More shabby than shabby chic, but some staff lovely some could do with cheering up Their wi-fi is better than most and the hotel is also the centre of the Medina. Their restaurant is too expensive so eat out. The room really is only for sleeping in. My TV was old and had awful reception. If bored take a book. The chairs on the balconies, terraces could be cleaned of bird muck more frequently. However it has a charm that you won't forget.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Would not hesitate to return
Lovely staff. The central courtyard and roof terrace are what makes this such a pleasant place to stay light and airy. Rooms can be a little noisy, but staff will do their best to find the room which suits you best. I would not hesitate to come back.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very nice
There is no WIFI in the room which is a bit inconvenient. But overall, it is a very lovely hotel and the decorations are pretty. We really enjoyed our time stayed there. If we go back to Essaouira, we will stay there again.
