The staff here are extremely helpful and have great insight of great restaurants and sights to see. The rooms are very clean and the roof terrace has an amazing view of the city. I wouldn't stay anywhere else it made our trip that little more special Thanks, Riad Baraka

An oasis of calm in a busy, bustling town. The English brothers are friendly, welcoming and helpful with recommendations for the rest of Morocco. Breakfast was great (look at the photos) especially on the roof terrace with spectacular views. The whole place was very clean, but there was a lasting smell of hashish throughout- the only downside.

I stayed here for 3 days in March, and it isn't often I give five stars to a place I stayed. And I've been to lots of places. I'm sure there are many other riads in the medina of Chefchaouen that are bigger and and offer great services.. but for the price, I think Riad Baraka can't be beat. It...

We visited 5 places in Morocco and Chefchaouen was by far our favourite! The locals are very relaxed and although the try to coax you into their shops and restaurants they aren't any where near as pushy as other places. The city is beautiful!! You could spend 3 days simply taking photos. Joe and his family are great at Baraka!...

I've been to Chaoen a few times and stayed at various hostels. Most often I stay at the fun but grungy Souika but I wanted something with more charm this time and Riad Baraka definitely has that without costing much more. The building has been beautifully restored throughout and has a delightful roof-top terrace. The owner, Anna, is a wonderful...

We got off to a shaky start when we arrived to find that there were no rooms available even though we thought we'd made a booking with Joe by email. Anyway we went for breakfast the next morning and stayed at Riad Baraka the next night. Breakfast was lovely - fruit salad and fresh bread was a great change after...

Thanks for the compliments on how nice the Baraka is and to clarify we offer oiled filled radiators(electric 35 dh)for the rooms but you decided to drag one of the space heaters(gas) into your room which was foolhardy and unsafe and I told you so!
