We spent two nights at Dar Gabriel during our recent two-week visit to Morocco. The room was simply furnished but clean and comfortable, generously proportioned with an up-to-date private bathroom. Even when we were in the guesthouse itself, however, we didn’t spend much time in our room. Instead we enjoyed the three-tiered terrace with its inviting pillow strewn banquettes and... More

We ended up at Dar Gabriel after a recommendation from Casa Perleta, which was full. Well proportioned rooms with essentials around the usual courtyard with lots of plants and rugs. Typical CC riad style. Nice rooftop lounge area with views over the village and mountains and lots of different positions to escape the sun no matter the the time of... More

We booked this hotel as part of our 15 day trek through Morocco. I did extensive research through Trip Advisor and felt like this Guest House was the best for us. We were very unsatisfied with how things worked once we actually arrived. I will outline our experience beginning with the pros; - Booking communication was great. We booked 2... More

Dear Madam I am sorry, I thought I had sent you directions, though they are on our web site, I will check again that they are still on there. Plumbing is always a challenge in the hotel, and I am glad we had shower fixed so quickly. The ladies - we waited for them until 1.00 am. It was the... More

After making a phone booking 2 days earlier, we got a nasty surprise when we wanted to make sure that our room was still available. We phoned Dar Gabriel on the way to Chefchaouen to be greeted by someone unwilling to help or tell us why our booking was not taken into consideration! He just put the phone down shouting... More

Dear Sir We were unable to accommodate you unfortunately, we do not take telephone bookings without confirming on our booking system. I am sure your reaction was perhaps of frustration at not having two nights accommodation booked on the busiest weekend of the year. Greetings Penelope More

The two gentlemen who operate Dar Gabriel, Mustafa and Soufiane were outstanding. Their help started two week before we left Idaho. The arranged transportation from the ferry at Tangier to Chefchaouen. They also prearranged a day hike in the mountains. Once in residences at the hotel, their attention to detail was outstanding. For example, I had not converted any money... More

A wonderful riad, beautifully decorated and couldn't have been a better location. Inside the medina walls but easy to find and we had secure parking for our camper nearby. We were unlucky with cold wet weather and it was chilly inside but the warmth of Soufiane and Mustafa more than made up for it. The wood burner was lit and... More
