The owner was amazing and helpful . Rooms are clean and amazing view outside the room. Peaceful place. Very close to the beach, restaurants, fish. And we were allowed to do late checkout without extra charge .

Riad Casa Blanca is a basic road hidden down a small pathway in the medina. It is a lovely home with basic but nice comfortable rooms. Great for a decent place to stay and a good rate. I think the rooftop is supposed to be especially nice. The people are nice there and it is very code to a nice...

This is a fairly budget riad with basic facilities. WiFi is mainly in reception, but if on an higher level you can lean out of the open central area and just about pick up a signal. The breakfast is basic, one morning we just had a croissant (not that fresh), coffee, yoghurt and fresh orange juice - a boiled egg...

This place was pleasant. It was peaceful, quiet, and cozy. I loved that it was right in the old medina. The best part was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff! It was good to have a nice place, conveniently located right when I got into Essaouira late at night.

This hotel, no longer owned by Moroccans and now called Riad Casa-Blanca, was nicely decorated and furnished but our room, and the terrace salon, smelled of cats. There were no sea view from the roof terrace, and there was noisy buillding work going on so the riad was n't a pleasant refuge in the day. The breakfast was good but...

I stayed in Dar Ichraq for 1 week while looking for an apartment for a long stay. I took one of the small rooms, but it was more than enough for me. The room was very comfortable and nice decorated. I had no problems at all with the shower and the room temperature, which are two of the common problems...

The riad is located close ot Bab Skala and the harbour and was one of the cheaper option in town. The room was dark, not too well cleaned and the air was moist. From the roof top terrase there was a great view over the sea. The breakfast was great and abundant. It was very quiet and the staff did...

It was a bit hard to find the place but as moroccan people are friendly and helpful we found someone who called Dar Ichraq and led us there. It is in a narrow street very near the big place and the car parking. The authentic decoration is fantastic as you enter. You can climb to the top from where there...

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Essaouira. The location of the Riad was excellent being inside the walled part of the city near the port and all of the action. It is down a tunnel and a bit hard to find if you are not looking for it. The staff was very friendly and professional. The rooms...
