A lovely guesthouse with nice bedrooms and a wonderful view of the old part of the town. Easy to find and Mehdi and his mum were really friendly and helpful. When we arrived we were taken on a short tour of the area and shown some parts we wouldn't have found ourselves. Thank you for a great stay.
Dar Onsar was an amazing find and made our trip to Morocco such a success. Our hosts were incredibly kind! They took us on hikes, helped us exchange money and hire taxis, and were intent in making our stay as comfortable as possible. Beautiful location with amazing roof view. Breakfasts each morning on the roof were excellent. One of our hosts even made us this AMAZING cous cous dish for lunch one day. Our hosts were kind, friendly, and helpful. Location was excellent. Gorgeous, quiet, and safe. My friend and O highly recommend Dar Onsar!
Mostafa and his family were the best hosts you could hope for - so helpful, going above and beyond to make us feel at home :) room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Would loved to have stayed longer and will certainly be visiting again in the future!
Dar Onsar really does have a beautiful view of Chaouen! The room and house were clean and well kept, and is conveniently located close to Bab Onsar, one of the medina gates. Mustafa and his mother, who received us, were extremely kind in helping us navigate the city. Breakfast was excellent! As other guests have mentioned, there were no air conditioning or fans, which was brutal in the summer heat before it starts cooling down at night, which wasn't until at least after midnight. I did not personally meet Eric but he was very helpful and responsive to my messages.
Eric's Riad is simple accommodation but comfortable with incredible views over the beautiful town of Chefchaouen. It's quite tricky finding the Riad for the first time and we'd advise getting a taxi to ras el ma rather than walking through the medina. Moustafa hosted us during the stay, and brilliant, very fun! He took us on a guided hike of some beautiful waterfalls for a good price. His mother makes a delicious breakfast too! For simple, affordable accommodation, it has the benefit of being in a quieter part of town and for its incredible views and friendly staff. Eric is very accommodating and will answer any of your questions about arrival etc.
I did not meet Eric, but I met Mehdi and his mother. They were both so sweet and welcoming!
The location was great. I had a hard time finding the place, since it was my first time in Chefchaouen, but luckily a man helped us find this place.
I loved the terrace & the price of the room. Such a great value. Mehdi was very kind and made us feel right at home. We ended up hanging out on the terrace with 3 other guests who were BBQing. It felt like a night with new friends.
The view is unparalleled and the location is excellent! Mehdi made us feel very welcome and the food his mother prepared was delicious. Definitely the best place to stay if you're in Chefchaouen-- our only regret was that we only stayed one night!
