DAR GABRIEL HOTEL, CHEFCHAOUEN
Dar Gabriel is a beautifully restored boutique riad hotel in Chefchaouen, northern Morocco, with seven bedrooms all ensuite.
Downstairs is a sitting room heated by a wood burning stove, a restaurant sized kitchen, and intimate dining room unified by the exact and simple geometry of the square riad space.
Four bedrooms on the middle floor are linked by a cedar landing opening down to the riad floor and fountain, and up to three tiers of roof terraces, three more bedrooms, another kitchen and a chill out space.
The views from the top of the riad are the jumble of medina roofs with the pine and cedar clad Rif mountains rising behind the town, their ridges and valleys folding into the distant south and west.
You will be warmly welcomed to hotel Dar Gabriel – with mint tea and friendly staff.
What guests wrote:
“Gracious and Lovely!”
Dar Gabriel is a wonderful respite from the busy medina. We stayed in a room just off the terrace that was clean and quite comfortable. Each morning we awoke to fresh-squeezed orange juice, fruit salad, ‘hobs’ bread honey, goats cheese and coffee. It was an absolute joy to stay there.
“Delightful in every way!”
I am at Dar Gabriel as I write this, and feeling at home in every way. The Staff give good tourist advice and they are polite and speak English, French and Spanish. It feels like staying with a family. My room is elegantly furnished, clean and just a few steps from two spectacular roof terraces.I am very happy here and would recommend this hotel to anyone! I love my rooftop room. Being able to step out and look over the town and up at the thick stars is a big plus for me. I saw that another room nearby has it’s own terrace and I may ask for that one next time.
“Blissful Hideaway in a Beautiful Town”
As a group of four, the two upstairs terrace rooms were perfect. It felt like the terrace and its lounges were ours. We were glad to have an outside window to let the breeze in on a very hot night.
Chefchaouen is a lovely town – so peaceful compared to Fes and Marrakesh. I highly recommend a visit here and if you do, stay in Dar Gabriel.
