This was the perfect landing spot for those that love adventure. Tucked into a zigzag street you enter directly from the Souk shopping area, this is the kind of stay I have dreamed of for years. The hosts were very helpful and kind and the space is soooo tranquil as every one describes it. I love the rustic and traditional touches that remind me of the authentic culture and history of the area. Everything down to the soap holders is solid and well thought out. Touches of class such as real art and well placed items make you very comfortable. The roof is an ideal place to relax. There aren't enough words in English to describe how beautiful the breakfast layout is. Recommend!

The riad essaada is in the heart of the city and with philips help we found the riad very quick. It's a beautiful place full of plants and lovely decoration and fits the description on the internet very well. Everything was clean and breakfast was served as we wished. We would love to come back and spend our next marrakech trip at essaada again! Greets from germany!

On arrival Elyz and her husband were very attentive. They welcomed me and have me mint tea and showedo me how to find my way to the centre of tea medina without getting lost (very valuable information)!!

If you are looking for an oasis in the city of Marrakech, you have found it here. The room was clean, cute and comfortable. The riyal itself is surrounded by fruit trees and a roof top terrace to enjoy breakfast. The hosts take great care in helping you figure out where to eat, what to see and what other fun things the city has to offer. Overall, a great experience! You can't go wrong choosing this place.

Elyz was ready and waiting for us to arrive even when our plans were delayed. The Riad is very difficult to find and many of the vendors had not heard of it even with the address. After an hour of searching we did find the Essaada. The room and hotel itself are just as beautiful as the pictures. This was a great experience to be living in the medina itself. Thank you for your kind hospitality Elyz!

Elyz and Philippe were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful hosts. The listing was as advertised, maybe even more beautiful! I needed accommodation for an additional night and Philippe called another riad for me and booked the place for me -since their riad was fully booked for the additional night I needed to stay. He even walked me to the other riad and helped me with my luggage. Elyz and Philippe gave me a lot of information about things to do in Marrakesh. Definitely recommend their place!

Extremely kind and warm hosts -- had the best weekend in Marrakech thanks to them. Beautiful little road with beautiful interior design. Super central location right in the souks, and a walking distance to everything in the medina. A little hard to find at first but was provided with directions, and by the next day I had no problem Finding my way home (alone). Hope to be back some day soon !
