I stayed two nights at the Pension Castellana. A single room, twin bed. Most rooms are single or double but there are larger ones available. Shared Showers. The Pension is a classic Moroccan riad style: central garden in the building. Central garden recently updated. Very quaint. Located two minute walk from central square in medina of Chefchaouen. Great vibe. Budget...

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights, because Chefchaouen is beautiful and so is the hotel with its various mosaics, even inside the showers! The location is directly beside the main plaza. Just watch out, that your room is not beside the toilets, because from time to time the wind brought us some bad smell from over there...

A lovely restored old riad of great chracter just off the main square in this beautiful town. Mohammed the owner is a delight - helpful and charming. It's excellent value - the same as others locally which were frankly grim. The rooms are light, well decorated and interesting. Good terrace too. Only downside is no en suites, but hey, you...

It's one of the best budget places I've stayed in Morocco. The building was restored recently and it's very beautiful. The rooms and the bathrooms are very clean and the staff very kind. From the roof you can see most of the blue village while you have a delicious cuscus! Mohammed, the owner is super kind and we love listening...

It is located right next to the main square of Chaouen. Mohamed very kind and helpful. Nice terrace to chill, clean. I would definitely go back there. Price is really good and there is ahamman next to the hostel

We were lucky to find a room at Pension La Castellana in the busy August tourist season. The location is as central as you want it; right next to the central plaza and surrounded by streams of blue streets. The decor felt like living in an earthern building with beautifully painted ceilings, and the rooftop was a favourite space with...

Beautiful grotto-like spaces, rooms are a bit dim but very clean, friendly owner. But--we were there in early December and it felt like sleeping in a refrigerator... extra blankets definitely helped. Shower at night was initially, briefly, very hot, but then became warm to lukewarm after a few minutes

First I would like to say that I don´t understand why this place is not mentioned in Lonely Planet that I have. The guesthouse is in the best spot of the city and is cheap. The owner,Mohamed, is very friendly and helpful. They serve no food but as the Plaza Uta el-Hammamm with its restaurants is 20 meters away it...

I spent one night and two days in this hostel. It was comfortable and clean, the water is hot, and there were enough blankets (because it was chilly). Mohamed, the owner, is a nice person, smiley and talk active. For the price of 75 DH, it's more than good. It's a place to sleep, and leave you bagage when you...
