  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The hotel is located right in the heart of the old city of Chefchuen, which means you can't get to it by car, you have to park outside the gates of the city and walk in to the hotel. Our advice is to park in the top gate, 'Bab AL Mahrouk' and walk downhill to the hotel, this gate is also quite and you don't have to deal with the crazy touts found around the main gate. The hotel is cute, nice, room is spacious, and the breakfast and service were great. If you want to spend the night in the old town this is definitely a good choice although you need to be aware that it will get noisy once daytime starts and because of its proximity to a mosque, you will be waken up at dawn by call to prayer. Recommended.

    Cute basic hotel in the heart of things

    Cute basic hotel for the price. Bed was comfortable. Shower water was either scalding hot or freezing cold and no in between. Breakfast on the patio was nice the one day, but started at 9:00, so leaving early in the morning, missed breakfast.

    It is located in the upper region of the medina with easy access to many blue corridors (if you are into taking photos). Room was cozy, staff were very friendly and we were offered traditional Moroccan breakfast each day. Good view of the mountains which would be nice in the summer.

  • 2.0.Poor

    This so very sad, a beautiful city with low class accommodation , untrained staff, cold rooms and no blanket that summarize Riad Zaitouna. I have used Riad Zaitouna in the past couple time which was fine and now this is the 3rd time my clients reported unhappy from been there and we will never use again. I know there is no much options in Chefchaoun which is sad and it will affect negatively clients experiences but at least this is a warning, DO NOT BOOK Zaitouna for yourself or your client and avoid disappointment.

    This is my first experience with Riad stay and was disappointing. Room was small, dark, poorly lit, and cold. Breakfast was very basic. Also be prepared to walk 5 min uphill on uneven grounds as it is inside the old town. Try Parador Hotel which is right at the entrance of the old town.

    Excellent location with good hospitality

    This was an excellent place to stay! Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and they served a delicious breakfast on the terrace. I have only two small complaints with this riad. First, it was a little noisy in the streets which I am not TOO upset about because if you have a place in a good central location then there will be a lot more foot traffic. Second complaint is the shower. I absolutely can't stand when the water doesn't drain in the shower area. It was a little wading pool which I really dislike. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this place. The fresh goat cheese they serve for breakfast alone is worth the stay!!

    Lovely staff

    Lovely family owned riad with a good feel to it. Best breakfast we had during our stay in Morocco with very kind and accommodating staff. Spacious rooms with a cool traditional shower style.

  • 6.0.Good

    Clean property with beautiful views from the rooftop terrace, good beds, polite staff. Difficult to find in the medina. Rooftop breakfast swarmed by bees. All three days, the bedroom had a faint sewer smell,and the toilet leaked. Close quarters, so it was noisy at times, from inside guests and outside arguments in the medina.

    Room way too small

    The only thing good about our stay was the location. Otherwise I would pay extra and go elsewhere. Room was way too small. The only way to get into bed was to climb into it from bottome. No room for bedside tables. Bathroom smelt and was tiny.
