We loved our visit to Dar Echchaouen... The position on the edge of the village meant that it was quiet and well positioned for hiking and easy parking... the hotel provided a guard for our vehicles. A 10 minute pituresque walk finds you in the center of the Medina...
A lovely hotel, well decorated, with well equipped rooms and nice comunal areas. There is a nice pool and gardens. Access to the rooms is up stairs (there are no lifts) but if you aren't prepared for a few steps then Chefchaoen is not a place for you...
The staff were very freindly, helpful and spoke good English. They were cooperative in making arrangments for our large group even though there were last minute changes.
We would highly recomend this hotel.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this facility. We found the service met our needs nicely. Room was very clean and we quite enjoyed the decore. Located above the town it provides very nice views of the town which is a very easy walk to center of the town and the falls which are perhaps half a kilometer. One of the better stays we had in Morocco but perhaps a bit over priced relative to others we stayed in Morocco and Spain. Easily I would recommend this facitility for a several night stay..The town itself was a welcome refief from other areas of the countrywe visited.

Room Tip: Our room was a suite overloooking the courtyard and would suggest this may be worth the extra over a...

Stayed here for a couple nights on the recommendation of a friend. I was not disappointed. The hotel sits on the hill slickly above the main city (a decent to long walk uphill from the bus station - but you can take a taxi). This affords you great views over the town (if you opt for a room with a view - which I'd recommend). The rooms are well appointed. It's also a short walk to town to explore the blue city - a definite recommendation if you're in northern morocco.

Loved this hotel in Morocco! The decor and landscape were absolutely beautiful The views of the city, the refreshing pool, the delicious breakfast were some of the highlights of this wonderful place in Morocco. The price was extremely reasonable and we highly recommend Dar Echchaouen! Can't wait to visit again!

Chefchaouen is a fabulous town. We enjoyed touring around it. Dar Chefchaouen was not our favourite hotel. We travelled through Morocco for 3 1/2 weeks and this hotel was the most disappointing of all of our accomodations. The view was nice, the staff was friendly but it is more geared towards bus tours than individual couples. Our room was kitsch "swiss alp" and the bathroom was cramped with the plaster starting to crack and crumble. (surprising since it is relatively new). The town is wonderful though and well worth a visit.

Our tour group arrived here in the midst of a rainstorm after a nightmare ride up from Tangier. We entered the building to see open fires, warmth, and a reception that was welcoming and very Moroccan. Our rooms were traditional, spacious, and provided us with all we needed. The location is ideal - looking over Chefchaouen old town and the valley, and sitting up near the pool after a busy day, just enjoying the wonderful view was one of the treasures of our stay. We ate breakfasts and dinners in the dining room - the food was delicious and the kitchen even provided a cake for my birthday! We could easily access the old town and spent the day exploring. Reception were very helpful. This is a great hotel in a stunning location. Recommended.

This place is a little outside the city, but walking distance and with good views. The staff is really helpful. The wireless a little spotty unless you are in the lobby ... but we were upgraded to a suite with a big living room and fireplace and the hotel helped us stay cozy and lit the fire at night. I would definitely recommend this place.
