Great style, nicely decorated. Great rooftop. Staff are very nice friendly and very kind. Location is great. It has a shady ally that can scare but its the normal style of "medina" and it's within the safe area of town.
We got bedbugs... Staff was not prepared to deal with this. They left us in the same room (we didn't know what bedbugs were before this trip) Second night it got worse and we could not find the staff in the middle of the night to change us rooms or anything (the person taking care of security at night time does't speak english and we found that person when sunrise).
We were welcomed very warmly by Khadija, the Manager of the hotel. The room was lovely and we enjoyed the breakfast on the rooftop very much. The situation was tough because our flight back to Germany was canceled due to the Corona Virus. Khadija went out of her way to calm us and offer us the hotel to stay to be safe. We had a wonderful time in Essauouira and hope we will be back in calmer timees. All the best and thanks a million for your support, Khadeja!
The place was beautiful, but it was our host Khadija that made our stay so amazing. She went out of her way to make us feel as comfortable as possible. We were stuck in Morocco during the COVID-19 crisis, and we don’t know what we would have done without her and the GM of Riad Baladin who let us stay.
Everything was perfect.
The initial aspect of the Baladin Riad is beautiful and clean! Really lovely decoration and everything was very clean in the room. The male manager was very kind and informative by providing different suggestions of where to go accompanied by a map! Breakfast was superb!
Sadly, we didn’t have the best experience at Baladin Riad. I stayed with 2 friends in one room and we all felt the same way. The hot water ran out after one shower. We contacted the maintenance person who advised to wait 15 min. After the 15 min, the hot water still wasn’t running. We ended up showering with mildly cold water as we were in a rush for a reservation. We asked for the beautiful fire place to be started and within a few minutes the room began to smell very smokey. 30 min in, and we were in what seemed a very toxic room. We notified the maintenance and reception lady, however they simply advised that due to strong winds, the chimney was being blocked... it should die down soon. It was becoming unbearable to stay in the room. Our eyes were watering and our clothes and everything else stunk. We ended up having to put the fire out ourselves. When we returned to the room after dinner, it was still very toxic. Also, the hot water was still not working in the morning. The following morning, when the receptionist lady asked how our night was, we were honest about our difficulties and whilst she was apologetic, she almost turned it on us as if to say, we should have notified them and told them again, more than what we already had. My friends and I didn’t think that was best practice. It was quite obvious that it seemed a barbecue had practically taken place in our room as the riad has no windows and the smell travelled everywhere internally. The hairdryer didn’t work, but they quickly replaced it. Also, whilst it was amazing that they had portable heaters in the room, they didn’t quite work. We ended up using the hot water bottle provided, which was amazing!
Loved the wonderful hospitality of Damien and Khadija, so many great tips and you are really in the heart of this beautiful Medina! Breakfast was delicious and they were so helpful in seeing that we still got it with our early departure :)
