“Close to Perfection in Chefchaoune”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2009

Both Dar Meziana and Chefchaoune were both unexpected highlights of our stay in Morocco. The climb to the beautiful entry towards the Dar gave some hint of the lovely interior to this small but friendly hotel.

Our room (Sidi Youssef) was at the top of the house, and commanded wonderful views across the terraces and roof tops of the town. The bright colorful décor and comfortable surroundings were exactly what we needed after an afternoon of exploration. Mourad & Mamdouh provided attentive and thorough service, including helping us to arrange a grand taxi to Fez at short notice.

I highly recommend Dar Meziana for couples looking for a romantic escape in a wonderful setting.

I would definitely recommend this hotel. The rooms were great (and I can use the plural for a reason; read on), the breakfasts good, the associated restaurant was Ok, the location was good, etc. The problem for us was that when we checked in, they offered us a choice of rooms. What they didn't tell us what that the next day the room that we had chosen was already reserved, so they forced us to move. Since we had made reservations months in advance, we weren't very happy. However, other than that, the Meziana is a good establishment to stay in while in Chefchaouen. The rooms were beautiful, the breaksfasts were good, the views nice, and the dinners at the restaurant owned by the same people were good. The closest bar is the hotel Parador in the main square.
They do have wireless internet on the first floor, but connections are intermittent.
Parking is outside the medina. Make sure to pay the attendants!

An intimate riad filled with light and good vibes. On a quiet street, great views from the terraces, very friendly staff, a great value. The rooms and interior courtyard are designed with the arts and the crafts of the region in mind. The staff is very well organized with local information and advice. Go, stay, enjoy. Solid breakfast and price includes dinner in town at a related restaurant.

We went to take up our booking at Casa Hassan but it appeared that it was overbooked. Before we knew it we were led through the winding streets on a 5 minute walkfinally arriving at Dar Meziana. We were pretty unhappy at this un-discussed detour, but upon entering, we were pleasantly surprised to find this beautifully decorated house with a variety of rooms, each with their own disinctive character. We looked at all the rooms at the different rice ranges and decided to take the best one on the top floor. It had the most amazing view from the elevated position. Just below us was the open area where breakfast was served, or where we spent the afternoon just reading books - it too had an amazing view. The bathrooms were beautifully decorated. The room had a bar fridge and air-conditioning. The staff managing the place were really sweet and ensured that our stay was enjoyable.

I would advise that after your arrival that you have someone lead you back to the main square and that you take the time to make a small map. After a day or two you will love the fact that you are not in the middle of all the other places and you will get to know the people and shops in the area. Great fun!

Oh and BTW, we had a deal whereby we were able to eat at the Casa Hassan every night ................... and I can honestly say .......... it was consistently THE BEST food we had in our month of travelling around Morocco.

  • Liked — The classic room with a view!
