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...

Stayed here with my wife from Feb 5 to 9, 2014. Stayed in room number 3 with bath at 280 per night without taxes. Possibly; The cleanest if not one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in overseas. Comfortable bed. Very hot water. Excellent breakfast costs 25 Dh. The coffee could use a jolt but every cup I've...

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!

Riad Baraka is a spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated Guest House. Several small cosy, comfy terrace spaces, all stunningly blue. It's wonderful staying right in the Medina and Chefchaouen is calm, easy and a very special town. Stayed here with our teenagers and they loved it. We did several walks from the guest house and Joe was great with his...
