We were received with a very warm welcome at this Riad. We visited Fez in February for a couple of days and stayed here for 1 night. Our only concern was that our room was very cold even with the small heater running throughout the night. It was slightly uncomfortable. The breakfast in the morning was decent. Beware of the...

We stayed here in a double room for 5 nights and loved it. I've been backpacking for the past 27 years and have a good idea of what I want from a hotel/hostel, and this is it. It's comfy, very clean, well located (inside the old town walls, 5 mins walk from the taxi drop off, 15 mins walk from... More

We stayed in Chefchaouen at Riad Baraka for 4 days and at first it felt like I was at some strange boarding school with house rules written all over the walls, doors, and the windows. It felt a bit too bossy. We soon got over it though and we actually really enjoyed our time here. The staff are friendly and... More

This B&B Hostel is great. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom and was beautiful. It was in the third floor so it was not really warm but downstairs the common area was quite nice. The terrace is beautiful and the guys running the place are really good. They recommended us really good places to eat. Book! cause... More

Lets start with the Positives: The location is good and the prices are okay. Its doesn't include breakfast but for 35DH you get a lovely porridge. The staff (apart from owner) are great and usually have a smile on their faces and willing to help (when owner not around) Negatives: The Owner! from early in the morning you can hear... More

This is a great riad with very friendly and professional staff. The room we originally booked here was somehow taken but the owner was very honest about this problem from the moment we arrived and we got an other room and free breakfast as a compensation. Furthermore this riad is very clean, very well maintained and has a great view... More

We only stayed one night unfortunately, but this was a great hostel, friendly, safe and clean, located close to the old town square. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we felt at home straight away. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to meet some nice folk and chill Out on the terrace.

Now i see that a lot of travelers share my opinion about the hostel owner, British lady Emma. She really IS very rude and totally not helpful. As a hostel owner i kindly ask her for discount and i did not get any answer. We had to pay extra for keeping my small bag for few hours ( totally nonsense).... More

joechaouen, Manager at Riad Baraka, responded to this review

Dear Bojana, It's totally fine to ask for a discount but it is a different thing to demand one and be upset and rude if you don't get it. And to be honest, we don't really see the point in giving a discount for a one night stay in a dorm at 68MDH (6.20€) per bed. As you mentioned correctly... More
