There are a lot of stairs (for those who aren't good with them) and its very cosy and pretty for those who are... Open plan bedroom bathrooms, lovely decorations and nice breakfast on the roof. Super friendly and helpful staff.

My partner and I stayed in seven different locations during our 2 week holiday in Morocco and Riad Baladin has to be our favourite. It was easy to find in the heart of the medina and we were warmly welcomed by Nicole and Cathy who provided us with a map and gave us a very helpful overview of Essaouira, including...

I had a lovely stay at Baladin. I was a little anxious about having the single room however it was fine with a beautiful and large bathroom attached. The hosts Stefanie and Gaudalope were very helpful and there were lots of nice restaurants nearby.

Riad Baladin has potential but is in need of some TLC. The weather was windy during our three-night stay and we were kept awake by the wooden doors leading from the room to the courtyard creaking and banging all night. One side of the room consists of thin, partition windows and doors which let draughts and noise flow through easily....

We had the best nap of our lives in our terrace room with the wind sweeping in. Lovely staff and good vibes. The terraces and staircases are bewitching and offer breathtaking views. The manager and staff were very kind and the feeling amongst guests is amiable. Light and airy!

Nice riad centrally located in the medina. Great rooftop terrace with various areas to sit and relax! Breakfast was fresh and lots of variety. Stefanie was very helpful whilst staying in the riad and also with communicating online with us before and after our stay. All the best. Kerrie

I have been travelling through Morocco in total for over two months and have seen many places. At Baladin I for the first time felt home in Morocco. Their concept is to deliver you the best, most personalized experience of Essaouira and sourrounding areas based on your needs and interests. So not only the riad itself with it's beautiful hand-picked...

Great spot, we absolutely loved it, located centrally in the Medina, very comfortable, very quaint, great rooftop terrace made up of loads of different private sitting and lounging areas. Awesome breakfast each day and our host Stefanie was super helpful We've become regular visitors to Essaouira and I'd have no problems staying here again Keith & Aisling

Unlike most guests staying in Essaouira I was in town on business rather than leisure, and stayed one night only. I fancied something different compared to a typical hotel of which there are plenty on offer outside the town. I was met from my taxi by a "barrow boy" who escorted me to the Riad with my luggage in his...
