My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at Riad Baladin. The riad is beautifully designed and located in the heart of town. The staff were very friendly and Nadine the manager was very helpful. She helped us find great places for lunch and dinner, and helped us arrange transportation to our next destination. Can't wait to come back!

Just left Riad Baladin and I was incredibly sad to leave!! Nadine is an incredible manager and arranged for a traditional hammam and a taxi to Marrakesh with absolutely no fuss at all! The Riad itself is beautifully designed and in a great location - I will definitely be back :)

Well situated right in the heart of the old town, this pretty double riad was a great base from which to explore the area. Our room, the white room, was nicely decorated in a contemporary Moroccan style mainly in white with natural timber accents for the bed and shutters. It was generous in size, however it should be noted that...

Our short 2 day stay in Riad Baladin was simply lovely. Nicole was easy and quick to communicate with before our stay and her local knowledge and recommendations were invaluable. Thanks to these tips and a handy map, we were able to make the most of our stay and had some fantastic meals at some trendy hideouts. Once you know...

An oasis of calm amid the hustle and bustle of Essaouria. Professional and curtious from my very first correspondence (via email) to my departure. My room was clean and bright and furnished to a good standard. Breakfast, on the roof terrace, was an excellent way to start the day - the view across the rooftops is amazing. Staff were friendly...

Lovely riad with a super helpful owner. She kept in touch with me so she knew where to meet us when we arrived from Marrakech. The riad is so well kept and decor is beautiful and even has a jacuzzi! Highly recommend this place

Rooms are clean and simple with decor a mix of comfort and local style. Breakfasts are continental with some local pancakes if wanted. Big pots of coffee and fresh breads. Nadine and Claudia were the best hosts and a font of knowledge. Wish them both all the best for future business.

My sister and 2,5 years old niece were there for 3 days. It wasn't the first time we visited Essaouira. The location of the Riad is perfect. Very close to everything, and there is a little cafe/bar where they do live music just outside of the riad. The view and the terrace is wonderful, it is nice to chill there...

A nice place to stay in couple. Really nice host ! The room was really nice, and comfortable, also the breakfast was a great moroccan style food. I also loved the way the host explained us how to move around the city and the best places to visit.
