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

Madam, Every once in a while we receive an unpleasant review. You and I had email correspondence to ensure you were met at the bus station, which was followed by a tour of the medina, gratis. You will have enjoyed lovely breakfast, and you slept in the same room that many of our guests have enjoyed before you. Soufiane and... 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

First of all, the location was SO easy to find compared to other places we stayed in Morocco. It was near the entrance of the medina, close to the sights, yet probably quieter than places in the center of the medina. The best part of the stay, however, was Soufiani - he assisted us in finding the best ferry for... More

Soufiane is a very patient, kind guy, and so glad he was able to help you get the right ferry, which can be a bit confusing. We are going to put together a travel document to try and simplify things for travellers. With general information too, like, you can't buy a CTM bus ticket on line, there is another way... More

We loved this hotel! The location is great; it's not far from the entrance to the medina in Chefchaouen (easy to find from the CTM bus station). The bed and room were extremely comfortable. As soon as we arrived, they offered us traditional Moroccan tea. This is pretty common in the country, we've found, but we still appreciated it. The... More
