Riad Chakir

13, rue Malek Ben Morhal, off Av. Istiqlal, Essaouira, Marrakech-Tensift-Al Haouz, Morocco

This colorful and friendly budget riad is actually made up of three neighboring houses. The ground-floor atrium has large communal areas for relaxing among stone pillars, an indoor fountain, and a cluttered collection of paintings and plants. Rooms are simply furnished with Moroccan charm, but can be a little cramped. Rooms in the 20s are larger, and room 10 (on the roof) has a private terrace. English-speaking receptionist Karim will make you feel very welcome.

PROS

  • great value and location
  • friendly, English-speaking staff

CONS

  • some rooms cramped
  • more homey comfort than boutique chic
