We were lucky to find a room at Pension La Castellana in the busy August tourist season. The location is as central as you want it; right next to the central plaza and surrounded by streams of blue streets. The decor felt like living in an earthern building with beautifully painted ceilings, and the rooftop was a favourite space with... More

Beautiful grotto-like spaces, rooms are a bit dim but very clean, friendly owner. But--we were there in early December and it felt like sleeping in a refrigerator... extra blankets definitely helped. Shower at night was initially, briefly, very hot, but then became warm to lukewarm after a few minutes

First I would like to say that I don´t understand why this place is not mentioned in Lonely Planet that I have. The guesthouse is in the best spot of the city and is cheap. The owner,Mohamed, is very friendly and helpful. They serve no food but as the Plaza Uta el-Hammamm with its restaurants is 20 meters away it... More

I spent one night and two days in this hostel. It was comfortable and clean, the water is hot, and there were enough blankets (because it was chilly). Mohamed, the owner, is a nice person, smiley and talk active. For the price of 75 DH, it's more than good. It's a place to sleep, and leave you bagage when you... More

I decided to go to chefchaouen for a calm weekend and my choice for pension la castellana was mainly for its great location, in the middle of the medina, close from hamams/restaurants and cafes. I paid 75 DHS for a small single room and shared bathrooms. Mohamed, the owner, is very nice and helpful. I'd advise you to sleep there... More

I moved over to Pension La Castellana after having spent a horrible night at another locale getting eaten by bedbugs. The moment I arrived I could tell that this place catered to a whole different clientele. I liked the fact that I noticed a lot of Moroccan families from other cities staying here, and all in all it seemed like... More

Pension la Castellana is in the perfect place for exploring Chefchaouen. Situated in the heart of the medina, literally steps away from the central plaza. In keeping with the colours of Chefchaouen Pension la Castellana is washed in deep blue. Traditional Moroccan style, rooms open onto a central courtyard of black and white tiles and potted plants. A new roof... More

I would not advise anyone to stay at this hotel. The receptionist is very arrogant on the phone. Once there, I discovered that the staff is even more rude. I could't stay there more than 2h ...

I paid 75dh for an admittedly small single room with shared facilities down the corridor. It's traditional architecture, spotlessly clean, friendly staff and great location in the middle of the medina. I marked down sleep quality as there was building work going on during my visit but it must have finished by now!
