This is probably one of the nicer hotels in Essouira but didn't compare to our other hotels during the trip (Palais Faraj in Fes and La Maison Arabe in Marrakech) despite a generally similar price. The location is good, just inside the Medina walls and a short walk through the Medina to the wharf and beach. The staff was great,...

As the positive reviews note, the location of the hotel as well as the architecture are terrific. Drawbacks are that (1) we didn't have a real window in our room. This made the room smell damp from the shower and (2) AC didn't work which means we were hot at night although it was cool outside. (3) Internet is so...

Thank you for your comment. Too bad you do not like the particularity of the Riad which is very typical of Morocco but I understand that you prefer the more modern structures. Thank you for your attention.

Loved it - old style riyadh. Great staff and ensure that you book a suite which is not much more than the other standard / deluxe rooms below the suite standard. The suites have both shower and bath and that bit more space. If you can book a room, avoid the taxi rank side - not horrendous at all but...

The hotel is right by one of the entrances to the medina. The building is beautiful. Balconies run around the nicely planted and shaded central courtyard. Our room, 28 is huge, with an entrance foyer, seating area and large bedroom with a large bath and shower room. Tea and coffee making facilities and a refrigerator with water are provided and...

L'Heure Bleue Palais did not live up to our expectations. While the ambience is nice, the interior of the rooms is of rather low quality: The beds are quite uncomfortable and the plumbing is poor. What surprised us most is the low quality of the breakfast.

If your budget allows it, stay here. If not, at least try to dine here. The service is fabulous. The atmosphere is sublime. The food is delicious and creative. The wine list is varied and affordable. Highly recommended!

This is a historic building that has been carefully and tastefully renovated to preserve the ambiance but upgrade comfort. The hotel has an excellent location. Our family (two adult daughters) had two rooms, side by side, which were nice but not exceptional but very nice They were dark with the main windows facing the courtyard, as is characteristic of many...

I loved the room, loved the beauty of the riad, perfect location, great breakfast, friendly staff except one at breakfast BUT you can have the best hotel with the best view from the rooftop that does NOT make up for me having to have cold showers and a very lukewarm tub part throughout my stay- that is a non -...

We stayed here some weeks ago, for 5 days, and the unique building, the awesome decoration, and the service is really 5 star . Check in was warm and welcoming. Mamadou with his big smile is so helpful and friendly,and specially front managers Naima and Mohamed, and all the others did everything to help and to please us. Big compliments!...

We give this hotel our highest recommendation for service - what a lovely and fantastic staff, especially Kamal and so many others who made us feel very welcome from the minute we checked in throughout our stay. And this must be the most fabulous rooftop terrace and pool area in all of Essaouria. We spent one whole day there lounging...

We're glad you enjoyed heure Bleue Palais. Yes, the structure of the hotel is little bit difficult for some service but the charm of our house is unbeatable!
