The Riad Al Madina is located on a lively street in the heart of Essaouira’s historic medina. It’s a great location, with shopping available literally outside the door and almost everything else the city has to offer nearby.
The riad is in a house built in 1871. Like most historic riads, it is an elegant maze of connected hallways, stairways, and rooms built around several courtyards of various sizes. Rooms are pleasant and airy and the traditional Moroccan breakfast includes several waves of freshly-made (hot from the oil) Moroccan goodies. When the weather is nice, breakfast is served in the lovely main courtyard.
The riad provides comfortable lodgings in a traditional setting without breaking the budget. It was a perfect base for our exploration of this fascinating city.
