I booked this riad online through hostel world I payed my deposit and when I arraived I was told by the manager he made a mistake on the booking so I had to pay quadrupole the price what it was sopposed to be, he yelled in my face and started to get really aggressive when I told him it's not my fault he made a mistake, he did not appolagise or give me my deposit back so me and my friend decided not to pay the price he wanted and we found another riad for much cheaper and a lot cleaner.

We were very happy we stayed here! The riad is in the centre of Essaouira and the owner is very nice. Breakfast was elaborate, which was good! I would certainly recommend staying here.
