8/10 Very good

The Riad was ok. You pay what you get for. Staff was very nice and the location was fine. The parking was 15 mns away so with bags it is not ideal. Very noisy because of work taking place next door. Late at night and early morning. I recommend the toad but I won’t go back .

Good Riad for a short stay in the center
Hotel well located to explore Essaouira. Rooms are a bit dated but ok for the price paid. The neighbourhood of the hotel feels safe. Breakfast is delicious and served by a friendly and welcoming lady. The hotel receptionist does ask what exact time you plan to come back at night when you leave in the evening.. As we were going out and did not care for a curfew, we made it clear that we can not give an exact timing, luckily he did wait for us to come back.. Overall experience was good for a short stay.

This is a mid-range riad in the Medina. Staff super-friendly. Decor could do with a wash and brush-up. Bed comfortable. Room freezing - end-November. Hot water but basic shower head. Towels grubby but changed every day. Breakfast, as ever, a bit samey. Overall, it’s ok for the money, but I could have chosen better for my first visit. Would re-visit Essaouira but would stay somewhere else.

Very decent budget hotel
It was a lovely visit to the hotel. We booked knowing that it was as a budget option and we were well aware that it might not be high on comfort. It was absolutely fine and the price and the location were great!

confusing online reservations
Generally a good option. The only problem was my reservation said "free breakfast" and their data said breakfast was not included. The explanation was the website searcher always says "free breakfast". The solution the boss was giving me was to complain to the searcher! After one hour of having me without having eaten at 10 a.m., he did not understand that if searchers give confusing information, the riad should contact them to avoid similar situations in the future. It was not until the second night that I was offered the breakfast. So clarifying this point saves time and problems!

Decent hotel, nice breakfast
Based on my riad experiences in Marrakech, I was a bit let down by the Riad Etoile d'Essaouira. The check in area was a bit rushed and they tried to charge me much more than my rate. They also wouldn't allow me to pay with credit card or US dollars which was frustrating because I was on my second to last day and didn't have much cash left in dirhams. The area was fine, it's in the middle of the main shopping area and was fairly quiet at night. The view from the rooftop was rather nice and the breakfast was good. Overall, I think a three star rating is accurate.
