Riad Erraounak Souiri Essaouira Reviews
Away from the noisy center Dec 29, 2013
Riad Erraounak Souiri is located in the New Town away from the busy city center. It overlooks a nearby mimosa forest and allows easy seafront access within the distance of 500 meters. Medina's walls are reached within 15 minutes walk so a car is quite handy to avoid walking a lot.
The hotel is set in Moroccan style building with central patio. The decor is quite basic with not many Moroccan artefacts visible.
Our 4-bed room was located on the 1st floor with windows facing the street. There was no air-conditioning available so the room was pretty cool in the evening which made us feel a little uncomfortable and we had to request extra blankets to avoid getting cold during the night.
The room was equipped with 4 single beds, a small open style wardrobe and 2 small tables. Very basic.
En-suite bathroom was not very big and had shower facility. Towels were included, but no bathroom essentials. It was clean though.
Breakfast was included in the room price. We requested our breakfast to be ready for 08:30. Unfortunately, it wasn't and we had to ask reception to get it ready for us while we waited.
The breakfast was very basic - bread selection, croissants, jam and coffee. No breakfast pancakes which was kind of a disappointment.
There is no private parking at the hotel, but parking is easily available in the street.
Total price paid per person - £11.50/€13.50 so not that cheap considering that the hotel is located outside Medina and offers very basic accommodation.
I would consider renting a slightly more expensive place next time with better facilities.
