My experience of Dar Gabriel exceeded expectations in cleanliness and comfort, I have spent many an uncomfortable night in Moroccan hotels with thin mattresses and hard pillows. After speaking with Ben, the gentlemen who served us dinner in the restaurant, i found out the hotel is ran by brits, this explained the comfy beds!!
The views from the top terrace of Dar Gabriel were truly magnificent,,,helter-skelter of Chefchouen rooftops and the hills below rolled on and on.
Ben + staff were charming, as was the decor. Food was plentiful, fresh and delicious.
My friends and I wondered about the Medina, purchasing various spices + jewelery then drank mint tea in the Square.
