“Great hotel ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

It's part of chefchaouen the beautiful city they use the same colours and the hotel is well planned with plants , good view for all rooms
Great mix of the past and the future
Only one comment abt breakfast
The reception was v.busy in the morning and was v.noisy although we were in a low season time
The staff were v.helpful and welcoming.
The normal room is small specially if u have more than one bag ( it will be hard for you to move inside )

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of the Northern Morocco Intrepid tour.
This was by far our favourite city and we LOVED this hotel.
The rooms are gorgeous, very clean and colourful, beds comfy! Great showers.
The reception area/dining room cosy and a cute little cat that loves a cuddle.
Would recommend this place and this part of Morocco to anyone, it was a little gem!

We spent two night here in Chefchaouen. It is a very interesting complex with lovely rooms. The room heater was effective and the shower was lovely and hot, really appreciated at this time of year as there is no central heating. While we enjoyed our stay, we did not feel that the standard of service or food was quite up to that of riads in other cities. This is a small criticism and we would not discourage any one from staying here.

This is a very clean and comfortable hotel, perched on a hillside overlooking Chefchaouen. It is an easy walk down to the town square and medina. The pillow cushions, table clothes, and bed linen add a colourful touch. Breakfast consists of breads, spreads, OJ, and weak coffee, along with one of many cats looking for a lap.

Cute hotel, with nice decoration and good staff. Probably one of the best in Xaouen. We've stayed there a few times over the last years and have seen improvements made.
The breakfast is generous and the meals in the evening are good but on the expensive side.
Rooms are clean, with good views and are well equipped.
Sadly, noisy guests, local dogs and chickens don't help to get a quiet nights sleep.

We were a group of 3 couples staying at this hotel in late December. We were not sure about the choice of our hotel as none of us had stayed here before. When visiting the village I always had used the Parador hotel but, however, it really needs an important refurbishment. Dar echchaouen is by far the best hotel in Chefchauen. The food, a bit pricey compared to the one you can get in the city centre, was awesome and the service amazing. The rooms, one double and two inside a bungalow, were decorated in a really nice way and the quality of the mattresses was very high. I would definitely stay again here. Very good hotel.

This is by far my favourite hotel in Morocco!

The location is great...Very close to everything.
The breakfast is very good.
Our room was very clean. The bed was perfect and the room was warm.
The view from the swimming pool area is breathtaking.

Simply WOW!
