  • 8.0.Very Good

    Hyvä sijainti "pääkadun" vieressä, pienellä kujalla vanhankaupungin muurien sisällä. Huoneet yksilöllisiä. Huoneissa TV satelliitti kanavilla. Aamiainen tarjoillaan kattoterassilla. Mukava henkilökunta. Ainoa miinus oli viereisen moskeijan rukouskutsu aamulla kuuden jälkeen. Varmasti herättää.

    Très bien placé dans la médina

    Tres bien placé dans la médina, à cinq minutes à pied de la Mer, des remparts, rues commerçantes et coeur du souk. Attention au réveil de 7:00 de l’appel a la prière. Mettre des boules quies ! On est en face de la belle. Belle vue mer pour certaines chambres. Chambre simple mais confortable .petit déjeuner excellent avec produits typiques Rachid est très gentil très accueillant et vous conseillera très bien. Il propose le transfert aller retour c’est très pratique N’oubliez pas de faire du quad dans Les dunes. C’est inoubliable !!!et rachid le propose aller prendre un verre manger ou vous détendre au M Beach sur la plage. C’est classe et la vue sur la mer sympa depuis un gros BED bleu ou canapé de plage et manger’ au d’jazy à côté de la porte bab sbaa à côté de la bijouterie d’argent, les produits sont frais du jour de la pêche ou du marché et il y’a des groupes de musique le soir

    Absout enttäuschend - keine Empfehlung

    Das Riad war eine Enttäuschung, das Zimmer, das auf dargestellt wurde, entsprach nicht dem vorgefundenen Zustand. Die Begrüßung erfolgte lustlos und uninterresiert, was a-typisch für alle Riads und Hotels, die wir zuvor in Marokko besucht hatte. Die Sauberkeit und der Zustand ließ zu wünschen übrig - siehe Bilder. Das Frühstück war lieblos, das gesamte Riad war in einem sehr renovierungsbedürftigen Zustand - wie eine so hohe Bewertung zustande kam, kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Das Riad entspricht eher einem kleinen Hotel (24 Zimmer) und bietet daher nicht die Intimität eines kleinen Riads. Wir haben das Riad nach einer Nacht verlassen, weil wir uns den Urlaub nicht versauen wollten, ich kann nicht nachvollziehen, wer dort länger nächtigen will... PS: Gegenüber dem Riad ist ein Minarett, ca. 10 Meter entfernt. Um 7 Uhr morgens, pünktlich zum Sonnenaufgang, standen wir im Bett, da das Gebet in unser Zimmer dröhnte, mit Entspannung hat das nichts zu tun.

    Superbe Riad au cœur de la médina d’Essaouira

    Très beau Riad. Super bien situé dans la médina. Déjeuner copieux et savoureux. Notre hôte a été des plus aimables et aidant. Malgré que ça ne nous ait pas causé de problème, nous avons perçu une légère odeur d’humidité en arrivant dans notre chambre (#120), laquelle est disparue peu de temps suivant notre arrivée. Plus ou moins bien insonorisé, mais représentatif d’un riad. Tout simplement pour aviser ceux qui ont le sommeil léger,

    Le Riad Nakhla est excellent, très propre.

    Très bien, j'ai beaucoup apprécié le Riad. J'avais une chambre royale, très propre on se croirait dans une chambre d' hôtel 5* Essaouira c'est un bijoux.( une destination que je conseille vivement pour les vacances). C'est calme au bord de la mer.j'ai passé de très bonnes vacances.

    Bon séjour

    Hotel Riad typique du Maroc bien situé. Un peu bruyant car chambre sous terrasse. Douche peu efficace et siège wc cassé. Parking voiture le long de l'avenue gardé (Marocains gilet jaune orange) contre qques Dirhames.
