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

Travelled from Fez to Chefchaouen with my boyfriend and we spent one night in this beautiful town at Dar Gabriel. Soufiane met us upon arrival and was absolutely lovely. He served us mint tea and plied us with delicious dates as he could tell we were hungry after the journey. He showed us two rooms and allowed us to pick... More

my mistake was not leaving as quickly as possible. There are two good things about this Riad, , they are named Moustapha and Soufiane, young men who are hard working, courteous, helpful, and deserve better than this. A pipe under the sink broke and the floor flooded at 10:00p.m., the pillows are lumpy, the mattress uncomfortable, the lights went off... More

Dar Gabriel was definitely amongst the most tastefully done up dars I stayed in while in Morocco. It's also very conveniently located at the entrance to the medina which is a big plus in hilly terrain. The staff too are sweet. The big problem I had was in getting a good night's sleep as (a) I did not realise my... More

Hello, Penelope here, Dar Gabriel owner. Thanks for your compliments with the décor and ambience of the hotel. I am not sure when you stayed, but I t wonder if it would have been better for you to have changed rooms - if one was available. Certainly we will have more cooling fans when it is warm again.

Really can't give it a 5 due to the quality of the towels and lack of soap and amenities in the room. The Internet quality was excellent, the location is very good and the owners very helpful. Should definitely rate a 5 with a bit of attention to the room amenities. Breakfast was fruit and bread with an option of... More

Hello, thanks for your review. I am sorry but we just provide soap in the bathrooms, not shampoos or body wash. We could easily have gone across the street to Aziz's herb and spice shop and bought you some Argan Oil shampoo or hammam soap.... another time. Best regards Penelope More

Penny here, one of hotel owners, thanks for the photos of our new hotel sign by the way. It has been a challenge getting maps of Chefchaouen, but Soufiane and Joanna have done it, they are brilliant.
