Coming from Fez to Chefchaouen, I could immediately feel the difference. Chaouen is a very small, peaceful and safe city where no one would warn you of pickpocketing. As a solo traveler, it was extremely safe to walk back to the hotel at night, even when the streets were nearly empty. The blue gives the city a special vibe that... More

What can I say, other than what a beautiful place to visit. It was one of the main reasons for coming to Morocco and I was not disappointed. Such a photogenic village, with many beautiful streets.

My favourite city of Morocco. By a country mile. Just stunning. With a beautiful mix of the buzz of Morocco and the ability to wander the treks that surround the city. The Medina is the most beautiful and compared to others I felt was quite tranquil. Manageable. Its not so big and so getting lost can't happen here. And its... More

It's true what they say - the most beautiful medina in the whole of Morocco and it's well worth doing the drive from Fes to see it.

Blue in every corner, literally. The small streets of chefchaouen will amaze you by the colors. Every house is painted with this distinctive blue. A lot of nice photos to make, playing with the lights and shadows, trying to see a cat or an old man going up a street. Obviously very touristic as well, but it is easy to... More

Loved everything about our stay at this quaint & quiet riad. There was a definite old world charm about the place - with its recurring theme of blue and white in keeping with the rest of the city. The service was unparalleled - shout out to Achraf, Radiya & especially Ibrahim for being such welcoming and accommodating hosts. We had... More

We found the Old City of Chefchaouen absolutely capitivating. Small, easy to get lost, easy to get found again. Charming, scenic, easy to walk around, not too many places to eat but it doesn't matter because there are enough. Absolutely worth a visit while in Morocco, even though it is off the beaten path.

Beautiful place! A must go if in Morocco. We stayed there 2 days 1 night. If you like to chill, be laid back, enjoy walking and getting lost discover corners of the Medina maze maybe 2 nights 3 days is better fit. Great place for pics... every corner, every alley, every doorway will cater for a photo. The shopping is... More
