“A REAL NIGHTMARE”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2011

It is a pity to have such a hotel in a very authentic place , with a nice view. Some people advised to stay in Atlas chefchaouen as it has got a view on the whole city and the surrounding mountains. But we were really shocked as we arrived . the place looked deserted. Carless staff. We were lucky the taxi driver was waiting for us outside the hotel, and we decided not to spend a night there. It is truly a place to avoid .

As a base for trekking the Atlas mountains the hotel atlas choauen cant be beaten, the accommodation is comfortable and food is of a good standard. Another thing worth mentioning is the swimming pool, there are few things better than a nice soak after a vigorous trek. The countryside and the little town itself is unspoilt and the locals are friendly. We arranged our trip through luxury-riads.com, they not only gave us the cheapest price but also answered any questions we had quickly. Remarkably knowledgeable, would use them again. If you want Morocco as it should be with a few home comforts then the hotel atlas choauen is for you. Great hotel, great service, great location – what more could I want?

Atlas Chaouen is significantly up the mountain from Chefchaouen town, which is great for an amazing view. We were lucky enough to have a room on the top floor with an excellent view, unfortunately when we turned up the power was out on the whole floor. We didn't want to leave for dinner and come back at night with the power still out, so we waited for it to be fixed, which were informed would be 5 minutes. It took an hour and a half, and I suspect only got done because we threatened to leave. The staff member who came on duty during that time was not too friendly towards us at all.
The room itself was fine, nothing special, and we had been given a twin instead of a double, but no big deal really. The walls though must be paper thin, and we were kept up most of the night by our neighbours (I'm sure you can guess why). Our sleep quality was certainly not good.
Walking to and from the town is not for the faint hearted. walking down takes about 15 minutes. Be ready to be offered hash every few metres. I'd opt for a petite taxi back up, which only costs 15dhm.
On the upside, the internet in the common area was fast and free,and the bar stocked some nice Moroccan beer.
We had booked through an online booking site, and got a lower rate than what was posted at reception. It certainly would NOT have been worth the posted rate.

It's high up in the hills, and has a great view of the city, but outside of that the hotel is horrible. The breakfast is poor, the rooms very average, and the internet doesn't work. The hotel feels old and un-maintained, and a little spooky. Don't look at the 'swimming pool' right after a meal, or you might throw up.

We stayed at this hotel as part of our honeymoon. The location was pretty good, on top of the hill so you get some good views. The walk down into the medina is no where near as bad as some of the reviews I read before we went, but it was a bit of a workout! The hotel looked like it had been really nice some years ago, but had had nothing spent on it for a while. The rooms where very basic and not that clean. I wouldn't bother with breakfast there. There was free wifi in the main areas though and their Moroccan tea (the) was lovely. I think you could probably find better Riads within or on the outskirts of the medina.

The location of Atlas Chaouen had its advantages and disadvantages - the views are absolutely beautiful and as it's further up the hill, it gives you a chance to escape the at times stressful below in the centre of town. However, to walk into to town we had to climb down alot of steep (and fairly treacherous when it was raining!) steps, so when it came to going back up to the hotel, we chose to take a taxi (15 dirhams).
The rooms were fine - quite dated but fairly clean. The TV was better than expected, and the bathroom we especially liked. We ate breakfast and evening meals in the hotel, which was to a very satisfactory standard. There is a bar downstairs too, which was fairly quiet, and had some comfy seats. We had a pleasant stay, but apart from the views, it was nothing to rave about.

Awesome view of the city and Atlas Mountains from the Hotel room and pool deck. Staff was friendly and helpfull, clean rooms. The only downside was the breakfast. No fruit whatsoever was served for breakfast, only breads with coffee and juice. Medina is accessable on foot (10 min hike, 200-300m elevation gain).
