Although it's truly a hike to get to, the hotel's location is truly one of the best I've ever stayed in. It's right near the top of the hill literally around the corner from the old mdina. The house itself is enormous - I wasn't expecting that. The rooms are lovely. When my sister and I arrived for our three-day stay, we seemed to be among the only guests, and the staff were so accommodating that by the end of the first night we almost felt like we lived there. Also, it's worth mentioning that the local staff (when we were there) spoke English, French and Spanish.
Most hotels in Chefchaouen do have some sort of rooftop balcony, and perhaps it was the exhaustion of the journey but it is truly a sight to behold - mountains above you, and the town rolling into the valley below. It's a really warm and welcoming place and I have some brilliant memories of it. I don't know how much more the rooms cost now compared to when we were there, but I found this place to be a hidden gem amongst its bigger and more well-known rivals.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Blue Pearl Chefchaouen: the blue pearl of the Moroccan Rif. At 600 meters altitude, the city is located at the foot of the high mounts Kelaa and Meggou which protect it. Now renowned for its blue-painted whitewashed houses, Chefchaouen is an unusual place where tourists from all over the world come to enjoy an exceptional quality of life where calm, serenity and spirituality reign. It is a city out of time, where the rhythm of the days is organized around the majestic calls to prayer, which resonate in the mountains Our Hotel The heart of the old medina is the main square of Outa El Hammam. 50 meters from this square where hotel Dar Mounir is located whose entry is remarkable for its large blue door Arab-Andalusian style. Our hotel is located in the former home of a famous Judge Chaouni and is today a family institution, since we are three brothers to manage it. It is in 2007 that the establishment opens its doors after difficult work, due in particular to the geographical situation of Chefchaouen which makes it painful the routing of materials and furnishings into the medina.. The hotel is organized, like many Moroccan houses, around a central well of light. The public areas consist of two lounges, one large, where you will like to relax by the fireplace in the winter and a smaller one near the entrance. The terrace offers panoramic views of the medina and the mountains, and is sunny all day. If the need for shade is felt, you can also bask on the banquettes in the shelter of our khaima (traditional Moroccan tent) where our clients love to have their breakfasts. ... more less
