Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Ibis Moussafir has remained loyal to the chain's concept. It is simple, effective, and charmless, but nevertheless represents a practical option when it comes to spending a night or two in Essaouira. It should also be conceded that some effort was put into decorating the communal spaces. Bear in mind that the hotel is quite a distance from the city centre, so bring good walking shoes!

    Location 5.0 /10

    The Ibis Moussafir is about 20 minutes on foot from the centre of Essaouira, at the edge of the city and on the road to Marrakech. It is just next to a roundabout and petrol station. There aren't really any shops, restaurants, or other attractions nearby. The Ryad Mogador hotel is located beside the Ibis.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The hotel's 151 guest rooms are simple and clean but there is no denying the shortage of space. There is barely room to move when you factor in the bed and the small cupboard. All the same, a little corner desk and bench seat have somehow been squeezed in too. All of the rooms are decorated in shades of beige, red, and brown, and they are quite adequate for a night or two. Some of the rooms are adjoining, which is handy for parents to keep an eye on their children. Others have been designed for guests with reduced mobility and include a special bathroom. Only two of the rooms, priced at a higher rate, have a balcony, which overlooks the petrol station and roundabout. For amenities you will have everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a telephone, television, air-conditioning, heating, and Internet access (charged). If you need a hair-dryer, iron, or safe, you will need to ask at reception. The small bathrooms are equipped with a shower and toilet.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    This Ibis opened in July 2008 and most of its clientele is made up of guests just passing through. Although the interior design follows the standard lines of all Ibis hotels, the decor is colourful and warm. This is exemplified as soon as you arrive in the lobby, a bright space that instantly makes you feel cosy. There is a Moroccan lounge just next to reception where you can relax and watch television. Free Wi-Fi access is available here, as well as in the bar, restaurant, and lobby. If you feel like a coffee during the day or an evening drink, you can head for the bar overlooking the garden and swimming pool, where the drinks selections includes, but is not limited to, Moroccan beers and local wines. On the cold, windy days that even afflict Essaouira from time to time, you can warm up next to the fireplace. A giant television is attached to the wall and shows live sports. The decor in the bar is bright and welcoming. The swimming pool is a reasonable size and is a great way to relax after a day looking around the city.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    The three meals of the day are all taken in a single restaurant. In the morning, a continental breakfast complemented with local specialities is served as a buffet, and for lunch and dinner you can choose between the 'à la carte' option and the set menu of the day. In addition to Moroccan dishes, you will have a choice of international options, including Italian, Spanish, and Lebanese specialities. Olive oil, a crucial ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, is used in a lot of the dishes. The welcoming decor in the dining room gives it a Mediterranean feel, and there is also a terrace where you can make the most of the Moroccan sunshine. In case you feel peckish during the night, you can order a panini and some hot and cold drinks from room service, which is available 24/7.

      The Ryad Mogador is a very peaceful and new hotel, which is still not really up to speed. It has a swimming pool but no animation. It is on the other side of the Bay of Essaouira, opposite the medina. The rooms are comfortable. Be aware that you won't find any alcohol here.

      Modern, refined and chic, the riad Madada Mogador may remind you of a loft in architectural terms, but it's located in the medina of Essaouira. You'll really feel at home here, thanks to the attentive and discrete service. It's very different from the other riads located in the medina, and maybe a little less authentic, but it is just as pleasant and most probably more friendly.

      The modern and spacious Atlas Essaouira & Spa boasts a great location facing the ocean, but if it's Moroccan charm and authenticity you're after, you'd best look elsewhere. Indeed, the emphasis here is more on meeting the standards you would expect of an international hotel than on showcasing Moroccan craftsmanship. If you don't want any surprises (good or bad!) when it comes to the services and decor, then the Atlas Essaouira is the place for you.

      This little urban hotel enjoys a good location but is rather charmless and nondescript. Despite the fact it occupies a nice 19th century building, it lacks in personality and character, which is a pity since it has the potential to be a cosy and enjoyable hotel.
