We've stayed in this beautiful place for a week. The place is very clean and cozy, situated in the heart of old medina (city center), very close to the embankment and city life. I highly recommend this place for everyone as one of the most comfortable you can ever find in Essaouira.

Dar Ness is a nice and small, rather simple riad in the medina of Essaouira, very close to the central square of the medina (Molay of Hassan) and the harbour with blue fishing boats and fish restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. What I espeacially liked, was a charming living room with fireplace, comfortable sofas and free wifi. The...

It is a nice riad, accessible from a narrow passage from Place Moulay Hassan, close to the port, very well-located. The structure of the riad is the Moroccan typical one with a central open-air courtyard with two floors and rooms all around the courtyard. Rooms at the first floor have a glass door with curtains in the inside, which is...

The best thing about Dar Ness is its location. It is really close to a gate that opens into the main plaza, close to the beach and the sea port. It is also conveniently located near the souks. The Riad itself is beautiful, and has charming interiors with helpful staff. All that said, you might expect that the review should...

What a beautiful riad. Clean and tastefully restored, peace permeates the rooms. Each room is unique and perfect. Breakfast is fantastic with proper coffee, homemade yogurt, fresh orange juice and baked goods with butter and jams. You can order dinner in, and do it's fantastic. The staff was always helpful and friendly.

Dar Ness opens off a covered alleyway & you are immediately ushered into a light & airy space with the impeccably restored rooms radiating off a central, open-air courtyard. Our room had soaring ceilings and large glazed doors opening off the galleried landing adding to the feeling of light and space. The beautifully decorated ensuite bathroom included a golden wash...

Just off the main road at the port, this is a very nicely renovated and clean riad. Most important of all in this moist and damp city, it does not smell of mold and there is a very cozy fireplace where you can read your books or surf the web on rainy days.

Nice clean tidy Riad in a great location. Very clean and tidy and the breakfast was lovely. Friendly team running the place. We stayed for 2 nights and our room was comfortable and very clean. Shame about only being able to pay in cash.

This is a lovely house in Essaoura, easy to find, right off the main plaza, run by an interesting French couple. When we arrived, Booking.com, which issues bookings from several sources, had caused the riad to be overbooked, so the proprietors paid for us to stay in a riad a block away and upgraded our room, as an apology. There...
