🚩Position is awesome, in the center of Medina, which otherwise is quite small. The rooftop offers a great point of observation for the whole city and the mountains/hills🏞 around and when the mosques are calling for pray it is incredible experience to hear their echoed concert. 🛏 The rooms are really nice and clean, with window and light which is...

My friend and I decided to stay in Chefchaouen for one night, and honestly, I don't think we could have chosen a better place for the price we paid. Apart from the Riad being very well decorated and cleaned, the staff was very friendly and nice. We were greeted by Cristin, who was just fabulous and answered all of our...

We enjoyed our stay at Riad Baraka - we stayed in a private room. The place is tucked away in a quiet corner & is a <5 min walk from the Medina Gate - Bab El Ain. It is 1.5Km from the bus station and you can hire a taxi for ~10-15 Dirhams. Beware of touts who will help you...

Chefchaouen and Riad Baraka were the highlights of my trip to Morocco! The riad was very clean, included lockers to keep important belongings, safe and close in the middle of all the action of Chefchaouen. Everyone working there when I visited in late July 2016 was incredibly friendly and willing to answer any questions you could have about excursions or...

CLEAN. Friendly staff who are very funny and offer great suggestions for hikes and where to eat in town. Friendly group of travelers when I stayed there, I had many interesting conversations and it seems to attract a cool crowd.

Location: Excellent. In medina Riad: Colorful and nicely decorated. They have a common area in the entrance of the riad and a roof terrace. Music is often playing. It was rainy and cold during my stay, so most people were trying to stay warm in the lobby. It is a cramped area with not much seating but it worked out....
