Lovely decor and design. Very nice breakfast with a varied selection of items - would advise taking the included option. Stephanie was very welcoming and helpful. Nice terrace for relaxing or sunbathing.

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...

Beautiful riad! Came for one day but stayed for 2 and wished I had more time. I definitely recommend staying here on your trip to Essaouira if you are looking for a nice, relaxing riad. The rooms are gorgeously decorated, and the bathrooms are super fancy. It's open air, and all of the rooms surround a middle atrium, so it...

Firstly, it may be worth pointing out that Essaouira may not be to everyone's taste. First impressions are that it's a little run down and shabby, these were ours certainly, but it does has significant charm and once you immerse yourself into it, you will be charmed, like we were. This is our second visit in a year! The town...

A lovely Riad with comfortable communal areas and roof terrace with great views over the medina. Breakfast in the warm November sun on the terrace is a perfect start to the day. We stayed in two different rooms as our first choice, the white room' was only available on the first night. Both rooms were authentic and stylish but would...

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...
