“Up a steep hill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2011

You get dumped by the grand taxi in the square so you need a porter/faux guide to get you there if you have bags. There isn't even a hotel sign at the alley point.
The dar is lovely and we had a suite which was perfect and warm.
Breakfast was good and dinner is included at the sister hotel which was quite adequate.
One false note was the hammam which was tiny and they wanted to charge us $25 for the use.

We went to Dar Meziana as part of our honeymoon travelling around Morocco & absolutely loved it.
The room was beautiful & had looked out over the pretty little breakfast terrace. We loved the fact that Dar Meziana is slightly tucked away from the main hussle & bussle of Chefchouen as it felt like a real oasis & it's still close enough to walk back from dinner.
Breakfast was delicious & all the staff were very helpful. They were more than happy to bring us mint tea & pastries up to the roof terrace if we got back to the hotel at tea time.
We absoultely love it & would highly recommend to anyone.

This place was wonderful, there are different rates of room, we stayed in the cheapest which was still very comfortable and beautifully decorated, the bed is set back in an alcove which I loved! The terrace looks out over the beautiful town and mountains, a great place for breakfast. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner are included in the price which made it very good value for money. Although it isn't right in the middle of the Medina, Chefchaouen is small enough that it doesn't matter.
The only slight problem was the bed we had which sloped into the middle, but it was still very comfortable.

This beautiful dar is built around a covered court yard which doubles as a dining area. It is surrounded by carved and decorated wooden galleries and our room had a seating area, a sleeping area and a bathroom shower. The room had a wall mounted heater ac unit which we found insufficent, so they gave us a portable heater which was great. Our room looked out on the roof terrace. Stunning views of the sunset. Unfortunately, we discoverd that the door to the terrace and hence our room wa locked during the night. So an early morning ewalk was out of the question. Also, as everywhere in Morocco at this season, eating areas are cold, cold, cold.. so food gets cold. The staff were very pleasant, and because my laptop had problems they gave me ready access to their desktop. April should be wonderful here.

Dar Meziana is a great dar. The rooms are very clean and decorated very pleasantly. The staff is incredibly helpful and even booked my hotel in the next city I was traveling to for me. The rooftop terrace is beautiful with excellent views and comfortable chairs to sit in while reading or soaking in the sun. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Chefchaouen!

The first hotel experience in Morocco and so far the best.

Dar Meziana represents excellent value in a great location within Chefchaouen's little medina.

We stayed in a double room with bathroom on the ground floor. The room was impeccably clean and bathroom facilities very nice. We had beautiful decor, daily cleaning, wifi internet in the room (a real bonus) and no problems with hot water.

As other reviews stated, you could hear a bit of talking from reception but it was not a problem at all and perhaps a better location for great hot water and good wifi signal.

The breakfasts were an absolute pleasure especially on the rooftop terrace. The dinners at Cassa Hassan were equally great and some of the best food we've eaten during our 15 day stay in Morocco.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and we absolutely loved our stay there. Dar Meziana was great value for money and we would definitely stay there again.
