This is a very authentic medina house with a sweet cozy feeling. Red and white checkered floors as you enter. It is one of the oldest houses in the medina. A fabulous roof terrace-- nice place to have breakfast, read a book or do a barbecue. A small kitchen downstairs if you need. Situated in the top right hand corner of the medina, you must be able to climb steep stairs , but this is true for all of the city which is an endless blue stairwell. The manager , Mehdi , is very pleasant company--social , interesting to talk with and genuinely concerned about his guests.
Mehdi certainly was helpful with the small car problem we had and stayed with me for the better part of the day to resolve the issue. Do be careful parking at nearby Ras El Mar . The guardian of the parking might say it is fine to park there and take your ten dh to stay the night , but I had my car towed by the police yesterday from this area which was full of cars. I'd been parking there for a few nights with no trouble.... Paying to park there. As a tourist, I had seen the parking guardians all over Morocco with their semi - official neon vests easily purchased from ikea... It seems to be standard procedure/ protocol to pay these people to park . I think that means it's legal to park there!!! It really didn't feel fair or consistent. The guest house manager was surprised too. Not at all the fault of the guesthouse , but it left me with a bad feeling about the chefchaoun police and pretty much took the shine off my holiday glow.
