            The owner was very kind and helpful in orienting us. Breakfast on the roof with the amazing view was a highlight. Rooms were tastefully decorated and clean. The location was wonderful in the heart of the medina. There are many places to stay in Essaouira, but no need to look any further. Would highly recommend staying here!

            Réservation de dernière minute. La chambre était prête avant 14h (quelle chance). Les propriétaires sont très sympas et disponibles, avec plein de bonnes adresses en poche! Chambre confortable avec de l'eau chaude et de la pression. (!!)..... et très bon petit déjeuner. Une adresse à garder en tête pour un prochain séjour.

            Un accueil des plus chaleureux et très professionnel. Mérite vraiment le nom de maison d'hôtes où les invités sont choyés par Didier, le propriétaire, et sa charmante épouse. l'Hôtel entièrement rénové dans un espace clair et lumineux ,est des plus agréables. Chaque chambre fait l'objet d'une décoration personnalisée . Situé au coeur de la Médina dans une rue tranquille nous avons apprécié particulièrement cette étape et la recommandons sans la moindre réserve.
