"Best hotel in Essouira by far!"
We have just spent three nights here as part of a three center holiday in Morocco. If you were not shown where the hotel is you would never find it. With just a simple blue door in a high white wall and no name sign it hides conveniently just inside the Medina. It is a total contrast inside to what you experience outside. You have the calm, splendor inside and a bustling Medina outside on your doorstep. Without doubt it is the best hotel in Essouira. It is on the site of an old warehouse that was turned into an orphanage then left abandoned for 30 years in 1960 until a local family bought it and turned it into a luxury hotel. It opened in 2004 and is a hidden gem. Despite being quite expensive it is good value for money if you want a hotel of this quality and style in this location. Staff are exceptional, rooms more than adequate, it exudes friendliness and comfort along with calmness and a perfect base to explore the town. It has a great hammam and spa which you must try whilst there.The rooftop pool is private, discreet and has wonderful views over the Medina and nearby harbour. Essouira is developing quite quickly with work to complete the promenade likely to be finished in the next couple of months and before the busy period. This gives you a good 4-5 mile return walk from the hotel to the end of the prom which has off it avast expanse of beach. Go now before it turns into a bigger more European style beach resort. It could get spoiled but lets hope not. Whilst there are some big chain hotels around, we suggest you choose this one for its charm, comfort, high quality and location. It has everything you would want of a top quality hotel
"Exceptional stay at L'Heure leue Palais, in Essaouira"
We were very impressed after entering the Lobby door to see the large beautiful lobby and garden leisure and dining area. This riad has all the ammenities, wonderful service, great dining, and very well appointed rooms. Just outsjde is the really unique medina with very interesting souks.and ancient and very active harbor. We very highly recommend this affordable luxury hotel.

"Lovely and charming"
This is a lovely hotel/riad in a great location in Essaouira. The staff a friendly and incredibly helpful. The price to stay is very reasonable and the food is wonderful. They have a mix of western cuisine as well as traditional that taste beautiful. I really enjoyed my time at this hotel.
I was there with my wife and i have to admit that we were amazed by this place. It's very classy and trendy with a huge pool and a professional staff that welcomes you with a huge smile. I suggest this place to everyone
